Stylish and up to date apartment in centro storico, immediately over the gourmet food & wine shop of which our host is proprietor. He was thus immediately on hand should there be any query or requirement. If the shop is closed at night, his father lives next door, and is always available. The balcony overlooks a bustling street lined with shops & restaurants in one direction and the sea in the other, but is not too noisy. We were charmed by Cefalu which is a most friendly town on a beautiful coast, but the best thing about our stay was undoubtedly the kindness and generosity of Antonio di Maggio, for whom nothing was too much trouble and who made us welcome and was helpful and considerate throughout our stay. Having discovered this gem, we are resolved to return.

Though the hour was late, we were met by car and brought from the airport shuttle bus stop to the apartment in the heart of the roman old town, where we were welcomed by Luigi, who introduced us to this spacious and well appointed apartment and left us several emergency contacts, none of which proved to be required. The apartment, close to a busy market, was nevertheless fairly quiet and there are views over the roofs of Palermo from the large balcony.
We lacked for nothing and enjoyed the bottle of wine Luigi left us as an introductory gift. He also provided us with useful maps and guides. The apartment was well equipped with two bathrooms and a large bedroom with plentiful storage. It proved to be a convenient base from which to explore the city on foot and by bus. Difficult to see how you could park a car nearby, given the narrowness of the lanes and alleyways in this crowded neighbourhood.
We had an interesting and enjoyable week.
