Overview

About the property

Modern Construction Two Double Bedroom Apartment With Exceptional Views

Our apartment is situated high up on a hillside, but still walking distance to the beach at the western end of the Cefalu beach. Its position provides stunning views across the sea. Indeed, you can see the sea sitting in bed in the main bedroom (see one of the photos). It is possible to watch the sun set over the sea and distant peninsulas from all the rooms. The apartment is bright, cool and peaceful. It is the top apartment in a block of four and has its own south facing small garden.

The property is in a private complex served by a private road and is therefore very peaceful, away from the noise of the busy Cefalu town and its roads. The apartment has its own parking bay in front of the property (bay number 4).

The property is new and has just been furnished to a high standard. The large living room/kitchen area has a large fitted kitchen with large fridge/freezer, gas hob, extractor, electric oven and dishwasher. The living room has a large screen HD TV and multimedia system, including Blu-ray DVD and sound system. The apartment is equipped with a dedicated Wi-Fi network (unlimited). The living area includes a large leather sofa and a dining table that can expand to seat 8.

The main bedroom has a large wardrobe with ample storage and the bed in the second bedroom can be extended to a double bed. [The extra mattress for this bed is stowed in the storage space under the bed in the main bedroom.] The bathroom features a powerful shower and a washing machine is situated next to the bathroom.

The private garden behind the apartment is a suntrap for breakfast. A number of fruit trees have recently been planted. A patio is being built in the garden in March/April 2015 providing views of the sea and a place for sun-bathing.

The apartment provides an excellent setting for relaxing – away from the bustle of the town. It is possible to walk down to the beach but you’ll need to be pretty fit to walk back – because it is mostly uphill! Therefore it is ideal to have a car, particularly if you’d like to explore the beautiful countryside up in the Madonie mountains and beyond. If you don’t have a car you can get to Cefalu by train from Palermo airport.

Neues Appartment etwas außerhalb des Ortszentrums

  • 4 of 5

Schönes und geräumiges Appartment in einem neuen Ortsteil von Cefalu. Auto notwendig - denn zu Fuß dauert es abwärts ca. 20-25 Min. ins Ortszentrum, auf dem Rückweg braucht es einige Kondition (Wohnanlage liegt an einem steilen Hang). Die Ausstattung ist bis auf nur drei vorhandene Badetücher sehr gut. Man kann wunderschön auf der angrenzenden Terrasse sitzen und aufs Meer schauen. Allerdings sieht man derzeit unterhalb auch auf eine riesige Baustelle.(Neubau Club Med). Alles in allem ein wirklich netter und hilfsbereiter Vermieter mit einem schönen Appartment. Die Ausstattung könnte mit einem Staubsauger noch komplettiert werden.

The newly built apartment is located on a hill in a very quiet location on the western edge of Cefalu. It is walking distance to the beach. There are panoramic views across the sea from both bedrooms and from the living room/kitchen. All displayed photos of the sea and sunset are taken from the property (other than those taken on the beach!). You can see one of the Eolie islands to the east and you can watch the spectacular sunset from all rooms. Hotel Santa Lucia, with its bar and restaurant is a few minutes walk from the property and you can walk downhill from the apartment to the western edge of the Cefalu beach in 15 minutes. The spectacular beach is perfect for swimming, snorkelling and windsurfing. The promenade has numerous bars and beachside restaurants and a beautiful view across to the old fishing town of Cefalu with its spectacular cathedral and rock. The tranquil and beautiful Madonie Mountains National Park is a 20 minute drive from Cefalu, up a spectacular winding road, passing the must-see Gibilmanna sanctuary. Cefalu is a convenient location from which to explore most of Sicily, including the Eolie Islands. It is possible to take a ferry from Cefalu harbour to a number of locations.
