We needed somewhere that was close to the airport, close to good beaches and could be used as a base to go exploring. The booking process was extremely easy from my first contact with Giuseppe the owner. He was very quick to reply, extremely courteous and I had no worries at all about proceeding with the booking. Our arrival day could not have gone much worse due to missed flights, lost bags and traffic jams in Palermo. We arrived at the villa exhausted and hungry about eight hours later than planned. I am so sorry for Giuseppe. He had been waiting for us all day to arrive but still welcomed us warmly to the house and showed us round all the facilities. It was really a relief to be greeted so warmly and find the villa so immaculately presented. There was even a welcome gift which was most gratefully received. The villa contains just about everything you would need for a self-catering holiday. All the utensils, pots, pans, plates, cups, knives, forks are there and also two cookers, a microwave, toaster, fridges and freezers. Our favourite part was the outdoor barbecue which we used a couple of times for al fresco dining. The garden is beautiful and very well maintained. It was a joy to wake up each morning and take coffee and breakfast on the veranda and just take in the surroundings. The pool was not open at the time of our stay which we had been told about in advance so we visited the nearby beaches. The beach at the bottom of the road was okay for one day as it was virtually empty but it is rather stony and hadn't yet been cleaned. We much preferred the beach on the other side of the tower on the lungomare where there are some lidos and restaurants. We spent a day at the lido Marlin and enjoyed (strong) cocktails as the sun went down. The nearby town of Cefalu is the highlight of the area. The beaches there are stunning with soft yellow sand and clear shallow waters with stunning backdrops. And the old town is charming with its narrow medieval streets and busy restaurants. I visited with my wife, son and his girlfriend. I have been to many parts of Italy but had never visited Sicily before. It is truly the most stunning location. We had a wonderful time and all agreed we will be back one day. The food, weather and welcome were all fantastic. One last thing, you really need to hire a car to stay here to get the most out of a trip.

The apartment is roomy and well-equipped. The location is good: it's a short walk into the old town with good restaurants and the beach is nearby (though it's not as close as the current Homeaway map suggests). If you'd sooner not take your car into Palermo, the railway station is only 5 minutes away. The apartment is on the first floor above a very handy supermarket and there's access to a roof terrace with fine views - ideal for evening drinks. Our thanks to Angela and Luigi for a great stay.
