Amazing property, great view and hosts

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to find the words to express just how amazing everything about this property is. There is the most amazing sea view across the valley. You can sit at the kitchen table, or on the balcony at the back of the property and just watch the sun moving, until it eventually goes down in a blaze of colour. The photos do not do justice to the spectacular reality.

We had two wonderful two weeks in this idyllic property. The property itself has everything needed for a comfortable self catering holiday: a large comfortable bed, effective air-conditioning, dishwasher, large fridge freezer and good hob/oven. It was all very clean and there were thoughtful touches, such as a hairdryer and some toiletries!

Now for the really good bit ... the owners Maria and Antonio did everything possible to make us feel welcome: meeting us at the main road and guiding us to the property, feeding us on our arrival. They were very kind and helpful, inviting us to join them with their family and friends as they celebrated the Cefalù festival with a wonderful seafood meal. Maria gave us food on several occasions, yet she was never obtrusive. We felt more like friends staying, yet with complete privacy if we wanted. The two dogs are lovely, very friendly and always joined us for breakfast!

Cefalù is a great place to spend a holiday - you can use the beach passes Maria supplies, or just wander around enjoying the historical old town and the shops (and the restaurants!). We walked up the Rock - take water - it is quite a climb, but worth it for the views and a temple which is 2500 years old! We also visited Monreale, Stromboli and Castelbuono, so there is something for everyone to do and discover.

We have rented many self catering properties, but this is certainly one of the most comfortable, well equipped, and most welcoming we have stayed in.

A beautiful oasis nestled in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We knew we were in a special place when Maria and Antonio, our hosts, helped us settle in with a bottle of wine and a box of freshly prepared, send-you-straight-to-heaven cannolis. And itt just got better from there. They are so warm and welcoming, we knew we had made friends for life. Our stay in this private getaway was what every traveler dreams of: private but only seconds away from our helpful hosts, clean and comfortable, beautiful surroundings, fresh fruits and vegetables waiting to be picked, a brand new washing machine, wine, olive oil, cooking lessons. It wasn't a vacation, but more of a dream come true. This is why people travel--to get in touch with the world and the lovely people who inhabit it. We could have stayed there with Maria, Antonio and their two adorable pups, Masaniello and Reginella forever. Unfortunately, we had to return home for Christmas. But, one thing is for sure, we'll be back next year! If you can only stay in one place in Cefalu, do yourself a favor and stay in this little slice of paradise.

My Best Experience in Sicily!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We traveled all over Sicily and had a wonderful time staying at several different homes. This small cottage on the side of a large hill overlooking Cefalu was absolutely the best of all the places we stayed. Our hosts welcomed us with open arms and insured we had everything we needed (including home made cannoli, olive oil and wine). We helped ourselves to the large garden and made several meals without a single store-bought vegetable. Other nights our hosts served us local dishes that truly introduced us to the heart of Sicily (and Naples!)

There location is ideal; it's out in the country but only a short 10-minute drive into the center of town where you'll find plenty of shops and restaurant to keep you busy for a couple weeks. And then there are the stunning sunsets....

We will certainly be returning.

Simply - The Best....

  • 5 of 5

After searching all of the letting sites, I went back to this property. I'm so glad we did. We stayed at Maria and Antonio's apartment for 12 days and enjoyed every minute. Cefalu' is by far the best place on the island, with a little piece of everything for everyone.

The beaches are fantastic and the beach bed and umbrella, that Maria and Antonio reserve at nearby Cefalu' beach is great.

The property is off the beaten track up in the mountains, although not hard to get to and provides commanding views looking out over the valley and sea. The sunsets are amazing night after night... The property is cosy with everything you need to make drinks and any meals with air con in the bedroom and a huge balcony, it was a great base to stay in and to tour the island from. We also used the barbeque on the upper terrace, cooking aubergines from Maria and Antonio's garden.

Maria and Antonio, who let the property, are the most amazing hosts we have ever met. They cooked us a fantastic seafood meal on the terrace and offered us hospitality throughout our stay that was not overpowering and went at our pace. They allowed us into their busy lives and made sure we were sorted in every possible scenario, from spot on restaurant recommendations to places to visit and where to go and not to go. They have become good friends and we will definitely meet up again either in Cefalu, Naples or England when they come to visit.....

An additional part of their family is the dogs Reginella, Masaniello and Sasha who are lovely, adorable dogs that we fell in love with. They are very well behaved and very much kept under control.

We would not hesitate to go back again and will no doubt stay in touch with Maria and Antonio regardless. Thanks again for a great holiday.

Amazing Holiday!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My Girlfriend and I had a fantastic time in Cefalu.

Antonio and Maria did all they could to make sure we had everything we could need and more.

They Collected and returned us to the airport which was great and meant no cabs or trains. Maria made us beautiful food made from home grown vegetables at the house. The couple took us out to dinner on the beach where the tables are actually on the sand. We had fantastic Pizzas there. We also had drinks at a beach bar as we watched the sun go down. They introduced us to their friends and family and really included us in their lives which was really great.

One Day they took us to the beach with their freinds and Maria again kindly provided food for the outing which was delicious. During our holiday was the Cefalu Festival and Antonio took me and my girlfriend to a secret spot at 1am to watch the annual firework display which was beautiful and took place at the end of the historic port.

The apartment is fully equipped with everything you would need but the best thing about it is the Panoramic Terrace. The view is absolutely astonishing! Something you simply will not find else where. Watching the sun go down from the terrace was an event I will never forget and will always miss......

Antonio Took us for a terror ride on his Harley Davidson which is always a bonus for me ( petrol head ) although I would not advise for the faint hearted.... especially on the mountain side roads..

There are also 2 Major Gorgeous little Dashunds on site Mazanello and Reginella that are the cutest friendly little dogs that come to visit the apartment and love to know what is going on... When we were there 'Reggi' had given birth to four puppies so we got to cuddle them and have puppy love.... :-)

Cefalu itself is a beautiful little town that just has something about it that makes it Romantic. Wether you are at home on the terrace or walking the old town or even the promenade at the beach.... There is always something to do or look at...

We had a truly brilliant holiday and I would recommend the apartment to everybody all types included.

I will never forget the hospitality and friendship we received From Maria and Antonio

Thanks a Million

Christian

Sicily has always been the land of the sun, the place where the sea, the mild climate, and the call of history are the key hospitality.

Located 6 km from the town of Cefalu ', we offer a wide and spectacular view of the coastline of Cefalù and the surrounding hills.

Placed in the hills at 320 mt s. L.M. and 10 minutes from the beach cefaludese, we are immersed in a lussoreggiante Mediterranean vegetation of pine, olive and ash trees.

The wide panoramic view spans a valley which blends the smells of the sea and the scents from the surrounding forests.

There is no external noise that could disturb the rest of the day I do at night.

There offiamo something wonderful: the sea, nature, tranquility, a magnificent view, comfort.

We have all the ingredients to make your stay truly unforgettable experience.
