About the property

La Terrazza del Pozzo is located in the historical center of Cefalu on Via Vittorio Emanuele, a few steps from the Cathedral Basilica.

The name chosen, is the presence of two ancient water wells dug in the rock of "lumachella" (stone feature of Cefalu), where in past centuries it was still possible to draw water from the source. The ancient history of Cefalu is present in the Terrace in warping of the great megalithic blocks of stone "lumachella" that formed the walls of the ancient city, and today masterfully preserved walls of foundations of the buildings constructed above them in the course of centuries.

The part of this purely residential loft consists of two large adjoining rooms and divided by the different units of the floor with the steps. Wonderful is the visual effect that, from the front door, leading us along a horizontal path, to fall vertically into the sea.

The first compartment is used as input and dining room with a small kitchenette, while behind there is the bathroom. Going down to the second compartment, we find the master bedroom with a large wardrobe designed to measure. From this environment through the scale go down in Terrace and you can access to the beach below, through a narrow passage and a couple of steps. This is not a regular scale being the last stretch carved into the rock, but still easy to practice.

The apartment is designed and laid out for residential purposes of two people, equipped with all the necessary facilities to spend a relaxing stay between the sea and the history of Cefalu, between the sounds of the city that lives and the sound of waves of the sea ...

Well well!

  • 5 of 5

As an armchair archaeologist, Francesco's property was perfect for me. The outside space incorporated ancient arches, megalithic blocks and a medieval well. A bonus was another well indoors (perfectly safe) and original bricks left exposed. Francesco has sympathetically modernised this apartment which had everything we needed for our stay.

It's position in the heart of the old town is perfect - there's a bakery next door, an Enotica (wine shop) next to that and, a few doors down the street, a weeny, well stocked general store.

I must confess to a degree of smugness as I sipped my sundowner on the terrace and imagined the less fortunate tourists envying my situation!

Francesco was a prompt, informative and kind host and we very much enjoyed meeting him. Thank you for having us - "a presto"!

Quiet and Romantic

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully situated right in the old city of Cefalu with a stone balcony over the water. Spectacular views. A few stairs down to the beach. Perfect privacy for sharing a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening. Clean, efficient and charming with old world character. The BEST! We will be back.
