The owners were extremely kind and helpful, meeting us and showing us around the apartment as has been described in other reviews. Everything was impeccably clean and - for the first time ever- we were given a change of bedding and towels after the first week - much appreciated. We were so comfortable and secluded that we rarely ventured out to eat. With stunning views, sunsets and cool breezes we were more than happy to eat on our terrace. (Having said that, Cefalu has many lovely places to eat). We can only endorse everything that has already been said and have no hesitation in recommending it to others. However, if steep steps or low ceilings prove an issue, you may want to consider somewhere else.

The Villa is situated down a private road and has access to a small pebbly beach and about 5 mins walk away there is a huge sandy beach. The villa is basic but perfect and so peaceful we enjoyed lots of BBQ's on the terrace with a fantastic views across the sea and amazing sunsets! My Son and his girlfriend stayed in the seperate self-contained upstairs bedroom/bathroom which was great for them to have their own space but would have benefitted from air conditioning or a ceiling fan. Cefalu is a 5 mins drive away and we would recommend a train trip to Palermo for the day. Alberto and Fabrizio were very helpful, thank you for the cherries and plums! Would highly recommend staying here and would visit again.
