Luigi's first holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house full of character and beautifully situated with great view. Our first holiday with our baby Louie who was named Luigi in Italy. Outdoor kitchen is great, the owner is very friendly and brought us lovely organic fruits and vegetables. He looks after you and will help you in any way that you wish. Cefalu is a beautiful town about 15 minutes drive and other lovely mountain villages are also relatively close by. The drives are gorgeous and the mountain areas are not very touristy. Would recommend this place to friends and family!

  • 5 of 5

"Very charming and quite place with fruit and olive garden around. The house look likes natural Sicilian and has the soul of that beautiful island and its owner. We have spent there 2 monthes, June and July. When in July the temperature at the seaside was +37C, near the house it was 2-4 degrees less because of the mountains around, that made us feel very comfortable. The owner is very gental and hospitable man, brought us fresh vegetables, helped with choosing the restorants and places to visit in Cefalu (very nice, smal tourist town nearby). In other words very beautiful and quite place for couples and families with babies if you are ready to spent some minutes in the car to reach the see.

I'll remember this vacation for a long time."

  • 5 of 5

"This charming home was more than we could have hoped for and the pictures do it no justice! It was so much more lovely than we had imagined, exceeding all of our expectations. The house was comfortable and charming and provided everything that we needed. Luigi was a wonderful host and it was apparent that he takes great pride in the house. He is a true artist and his attention to detail in the house and the property are awe-inspiring. We were there for a week, and even at the end of our time there, we were still discovering little details and features that we had not noticed before. He also had little treats there for us when we arrived, including coffee, and he even dropped by one morning with pastries for breakfast. What a welcome surprise!

As for the location, the house is located in the mountains several miles from Cefalu. It was very convenient to go into town and the mountain views were breathtaking. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone who was traveling to the area, and I know that if we return to Cefalu, that we will be sure to stay there again. It really began to feel like home, and we were sad to leave!"

  • 5 of 5

"We came to Cefalu following one of my best friend's advice. He was here one year before us and he was enchanted by the region and by Luigi and his wife, Giuseppina (hope my spelling is OK). We spent here 13 days and, at the end of our stay we regretted that the house was not available for 13 more days. One grows an attachment to the house and to the surroundings, mountains and see, tradition and confort. We drove close to 5,000 km and saw like 60% of Sicily. We got back to the house each evening with great pleasure. I can send images to whoever wants to get a better look on the house and on the region. Do not miss the icecream in the old city of Cefalu!.."

"We had a fantastic time ...

  • 5 of 5

"We had a fantastic time in Sicily, in fact the best vacation I ever had. And this was very much thanks to Luigi, a man of great generosity and kindness, the perfect host indeed who spared no effort in making us feel at home. Luigi is an artist and has built this marvelous house himself. It has to be seen in real life to really understand how special it is – no photos can do it justice. The house is situated on a hillside amongst ancient olive trees and overlooking a valley with mountains on the other side. The tranquility of this place and all its’ sounds – the stream that runs through the valley and the animals inhabiting it.

We made full use of the outdoor kitchen, grilling Swordfish (with Salmoriglo sauce), Tuna, Orate, Spigole, Gamberi, Sarde, Capretto (kid), the local Salsiccia etc, all of this available in excellent quality in the town. And there is a wonderful garden where we would go on discovery tours with our little daughter, tasting Gelsi-berries and wild Fennigreek and examining huge and tiny cactuses, rapid lizards and exotic flowers.

I will return here often in my dreams and I really wish to be able come back soon in real life also. And again – Luigi: Mille Grazie e Arrivederci !"
