Lovely bright flat with great views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights in this apartment. The hosts, Luca and Stefano were very hospitable, collecting us from the station and taking us back there when we were leaving. The apartment is very bright and airy with a large terrace. It is spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything you need for a short break and is exactly as shown in the photographs on the HomeAway site. The flat is in a modern apartment block about 10 minutes from the sandy beach. It is on a hill, so you will do quite a bit of going up and down steps on your way to the beach and the old town, but it was fine for us (we're in our 50s and 60s). There is a very nice baker nearby and a large supermarket near the beach.

The old town in Cefalu is absolutely charming with lots of nice cafes and shops. If you want to go further afield, it is only an hour by train to Palermo and it is also possible to get to Agrigento by train.

Amazing flat with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is situated on a nice residential neighborhood on a hill. Easily reached by car or by foot and there is a nice designated parking spot available. The hill is pretty steep so I would not recommend this place for those with disabilities. However I would recommend this to everybody else! Descent to Cefalú center takes just around five minutes on foot and ascent with kids and groceries around 10-15 minutes. Exercise much needed, after stuffing yourself with fresh fish, crustaceans, squid and cartoccio palermitanas con ricotta.

Luca is an excellent and courteous host and you should listen to his shopping, restaurant and activity recommendations as we did, because he really knows his home town’s surroundings and has impeccable taste.

The penthouse apartment is light, roomy and swanky. Large, beautiful windows offer unbelievable sights to sea and Cefalú. Outdoor area is about 130 M2 and it has good, high railings that prevent your small kids from creating unwanted scaling attempts. There is a nice charcoal grill and sun loungers and a pergola, so it was very agreeable to relax at sunset on the patio and grill some pesce spade or asino!!! from the butcher’s close by and drink a cool glass of rosé, while kids played ball. We had a very pleasant stay in this apartment and Cefalú in general and we are very grateful to Luca for hosting us.

Great Place in a Beautiful City

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Luca's apartment was incredible. The location is an easy walk into the city and the apartment itself was better than we expected. It was modern and the outdoor space and view of Cefalu put it over the top. During our stay Luca was even working to improve the outdoor space more, so at this point it is possibly even more beautiful. Luca was a gracious and accommodating host. He had great recommendations for in the city and was available throughout our stay. I would recommend this city and this apartment to anyone traveling through Sicily. You will not find a better experience.

Amazing Views!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful bright apartment with a massive terrace!

We had an amazing week at Luca's apartment and I couldn't recommend it more. The views are stunning at all times of the day and we found Cefalu delightful.

Luca and his brother were really helpful and were very welcoming.

The apartment is really clean and tidy. There is aircon in each room and a quality shower.

The flat is less than 5 mins walk to a small supermarket and to a local butcher and bakery. You can walk to the beach and in to the centre of town in about 10-15 mins.

We really hope to go back and stay there again! Thanks...

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

We spent a lovely week in Attico penthouse apartment. It is up the hill overlooking the town, with spectacular views from the enormous terrace. It’s a real luxury to have such space, the views are amazing and we often found ourselves just sitting in the evening watching the sky. The teenagers used it for sunbathing, exercising, dancing, turning cartwheels etc. Great for a barbecue and eating outside too.

The apartment is bright and sunny - and air conditioned. The beds are comfy, the kitchen well equipped, and the bathroom and hot water system all worked perfectly. Nice coffee maker Stefano, thanks.

The walk into Cefalu is about ten minutes (we didn’t manage to time it because we kept stopping off at the bakery or ice cream shop en route to the beach or town). We didn’t hire a car or scooters, and would sometimes walk in and out of town two or three times a day, so I was glad to have packed flat shoes.

Cefalu is a beautiful old town, with a Norman church, a lovely square and little side streets bursting with cafes and ambiance. There’s a busy beachfront to one side, and on the other a quieter coastline where you can swim off the rocks.

The apartment owner Stefano was brilliant. He arranged transfer by taxi from the airport (our plane arrived too late to come by train), and sorted out a luggage store for our last day too. He was ready to help with any queries, and gave us some tips for where to go - great ice cream shop recommendation.

Fantastic stay

  • 5 of 5

This was even better than expected. The balcony and the views were breathtaking. Appartment had everything you needed and also aircondition on both bedrooms and livingroom.

Was a quick 8-10 minutes walk from the center and the beach which is worth it if you want a quiet relaxing atmosphere away from the noise and traffic in the center.

Luca, the host was super helpful and available all the time. He rents out many apparments and also helped others in our travel group, where he also was super helpful.

Owner's Response: E' stato un vero piacere ospitarli, molto gentili e simpatici. Idea grandiosa di organizzare un matrimonio in Sicilia partendo dalla Norvegia! Tanti auguri e spero a presto con una famiglia più numerosa (-:
