An absolutely gorgeous stay
This is really a magical place. The owners were lovely, ( thank you Giuliana and Gisella!)
Each morning we had a swim in the beach that is just below the villa which was heaven.
If you want to see shops and restaurants Cefalù is only 10 minutes away by car.
One of the big bonus’s was having a such a large terrace to laze around on. Plenty of comfy furniture and a decent kitchen meant we had no real reason to leave the house!
We will be back!
Requires a refresh, but great house and great location
We had a great week in this house with direct access to the sea of Cefalu'. No one was staying on the adjacent villa nor in the downstairs apartment, so we also had perfect privacy and calm.
The house, garden and terraces are well maintained and fully equiped, but overall the house is quite dated and it would especially benefit from an upgrade in the outdoors furniture and a refresh of the windows, doors and walls to really shine.
Location-wise, you can hardly do better for beach-time: the beach is beautiful and the view from the garden and terraces is breath-taking, the stairs to the beach are not very steep and my four-years-old had no problem climbing them up and down.
Wonderful Italian style house just 120 steps from the beautiful beach
Highly recommend this villa to families with kids. Some issues with parking, the rest was just fine. Thanks to Giuliana (owner) for hospitality! One day we will definitely come back!
Above my high expectations
Villa Maria is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy yourselves. It is quiet, the views are spectacular, very close to the beach (you have your own private access), extremely well equipped kitchen. And close to town and the autostrada even though it doesn't feel that way. A car would be important. The owners couldn't have been nicer nor more helpful. We have rented many homes around the Med and this was by far the best. Being Americans with no children we would never vacation there in July or August because of the heat but I am sure it wouldn't stop most people and you do have that gorgeous sea in which to cool off. Very highly, happily recommend Villa Maria.
"The villa is fantastic: ...
"The villa is fantastic: great views, shady garden, fabulous stairs leading right to sandy beach, many terraces where the kids can safely play. The villa is fully equipped (you can even ask for beach towels and beach furniture). The owners are very friendly and helpful (at my request they even helped me to find a language teacher for my 11 years old son). On the beach it is possible to have windsurfing lessons. The villa provides an opportunity to feel yourself in a secluded spot, and on the other hand in a resort (Cefalu is few minutes away from the villa). I think we would come here once again."
My testimonial's not goin...
My testimonial's not going to be different: the villa is just great. It's pretty, clean and has everything you might need (including a hairdrier which I usually bring from home...and high chair for our baby). The views are stunning, I literally cried when first time whent out to the terrace and saw the bay. The owners are very nice people, friendly and helpful.
There are a lot of places around to visit: Cefalu itself, Castelbuono with its amazing restaurants, Caccamo...
We are in the process of searching another holiday property (now in France) and it's very uneasy to find something comparable to this one...this villa has private access to the sea!
