Shabby by the sea was the description used to describe this flat and it was a perfect description really. The outside of the apartments needed a good lick of paint though general upgrade work did seem to have started but the gardens, pool and general area were very well maintained and clean and tidy.
The apartment itself is very well presented comfortable but small especially the kitchen but it was functional with oven, hob and lots of crockery and utensils. The main bedroom was spacious but the second bedroom had just 2 single beds but no room for lockers etc so more suited to a couple or else a couple with young children. There is access to the pebble beach below but this maybe difficult for less mobile people as there are quite a few steps to get there.
But it really doesn't matter because you would stay here for the incredible beautiful views of the coastline, the vivid blue sea and the feeling that you were staying in a 5 star penthouse with exclusive views that only you got to see. This is where you would go for a romantic holiday where you can sit at the dining room table and view the sun going down being La Rocca in Cefalu. All the photos are there in the apartment description but they just do not do convey the sheer beauty of this area. Cefalu is about 10 mins drive away so the location is excellence and I cannot praise the owner Pietro enough. The extras like the wine, cakes drinks etc were all appreciated and when we did have an issue with the internet it was sorted within 5 minutes of contacting him.
This has been such a relaxing enjoyable holiday and I would highly recommend staying here, you won't regret it.
We enjoyed our stay at Lorenzo's villa which was clean, large and well equipped. My children loved the pool which has a lovely view, is deep and my children went in everyday, Although it is a nice walk into the centre of Cefalu from the villa it is about a 25 minute walk. Check out the excellent bakers in the centre of town called Non Solo Pan. The climb up to the temple of Diana was great and the people of Cefalu very friendly.
