The apartment is well sit...

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is well situated, only 10 minutes walking from a very nice beach, furniture is more or less OK but the kitchen utensils are absolutely insufficient or even poorly represented. But in spite of that we had a good week until the last day when the owners wife came for inspection of our cleaning job and told us that the job was not well done, while we actually did a perfect job, 2 hours sweeping and mopping all floors, includig the staircase, etc. That was very disappointing and not very sympatic at all. Also it would be nice if the owner would explain some things at the arrival, like how the cooker/oven works and that there is alo a storage room on the balcony (with plastic terrace chairs and a fan) that we only found the last day, 6 days to late. With a few minor approvals this place would be even a lot better and make the stay a great lot nicer.

Excellent place for our S...

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place for our September visit! Nice house with peaceful surroundings and nearby beaches. Friendly welcome and good service. The grocery store was not as close as we thought but you do need a car/motorbike/bike over here anyway.

Just one word for improvement - the kitchen equipment (proper knives, frying pans) could be a little better. However, we managed to do everything we wanted anyway, and the location of Cefalu as a "base" is just perfect for driving around the island. Not to mention that Cefalu itself is very romantic and beautiful. Thank you for a nice vacation!

Sehr angenehmer Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren für insgesamt 10 Tage in dieser Unterkunft. Die Lage ist etwas außerhalb von Cefalú, man braucht definitiv ein Auto (ca. 10 Minuten Fahrt) und muss für die Parkplätze vor Ort bezahlen (7€/Tag, 2€/4h, 3€/6h, Parkplatz ist bewacht) oder man hat das seltene Glück, einen kostenlosen Parkplatz zu ergattern.

Im Ort selbst gibt es keinen Bäcker, sodass man mit dem Auto einkaufen muss. Quasi vor der Wohnung gibt es einen wirklich kleinen Strand, 5 Minuten zu Fuß ist ein größerer, schöner Strand, an dem man auch seine Ruhe vor Verkäufern hat. In Cefalú ist der Strand ebenfalls sehr schön, aber auch stark bevölkert (viele Verkäufer).

In der Wohnung an sich hatten wir für 3 Erwachsene 2 Schlafzimmer mit je einem Doppelbett. Ein Schlafsofa zum Ausziehen war in der Küche. In jedem Raum gibt es einen Ventilator. Unsere Wohnung (im Erdgeschoss) hatte eine überdachte (mit Ventilator) Terasse mit Außenküche, eine Möglichkeit, Handtücher zu trocknen und eine Außendusche (ein Traum!). Das Gründstück ist eingezäunt. Es gibt die Möglichkeit, eine Waschmaschine zu buchen, diese steht im Garten der Vermieter, man sollte sein eigenes Waschpulver mitnehmen, wenn man sie nutzen möchte.

Die Vermieter wohnen ebenfalls vor Ort und sind jederzeit ansprechbar. Da beide nur Italienisch (er spricht ein wenig Englisch) sprechen, sind grobe Kenntnisse gut, sein Sohn (wohnte am Wochenende ebenfalls vor Ort) spricht Englisch. Kontakt hatten wir via Whatsapp mit Anna, welche sehr gut Englisch spricht.

Ingsgesamt hat uns der Urlaub sehr gut gefallen, und wir können die Unterkunft gut weiterempfehlen.
