June 2019 Holiday-Family/Friends
Firstly we would like to say that Sicily is a beautiful part of Italy and especially Cefalu. The Weather, Sea, Beaches, Restaurants, Churches and Especially the people are absolutely fantastic. I have been to Sicily 3 times and will again!
Marco Galluzzo owner of the Villa was extremely helpful and professional throughout and answered all of our questions and responded to messages very promptly and was always understanding. He was a pleasure to deal with.
Check in was a bit rushed for us as we were late out of the airport and then with road works upon us meant we got to the meeting point of the villa rep late. We would have ideally liked to have had a longer check inn as were tired and couldn't absorb all the information in a short/rushed period of time.
The Villa Entrance is through 2 gates 1 at the bottom of the hill and 1 at the top of the hill. This hill is extremely steep and you will need a more powerful car and be used to steep hills. Make sure you get everyone out of the car before going through the second entrance door in case the weight of the car at the bottom hits the bar on the gate floor in to the villa compound so you don't damage it.
If you wish to go out by taxi opposed to driving this can be done by walking down the hill to the main entrance where the taxi driver will wait for you. This hill is steep and not everyone maybe able to do it.
When we wanted to go out without driving, we used a licensed taxi driver called Giuseppe Napoli & his mobile number +39 333 2086789 and you can use what's app messenger to book him. He was really reliable and friendly. You can also call the taxi company we found him through which is Urban Taxi 007 Cefalu +39 338 3640353.
The villa itself was absolutely beautiful, spacious and the sea views are amazing. Great place to stay. We felt very relaxed and at home. The swimming pool was also lovely and in all we were very happy. We were also grateful for the amount of food and drink and other cooking items left for us to use. It's really helpful when you just get there. and don't want to rush out shopping.
All in all very happy with the villa and the holiday and look forward to the next one!
The photos of this marvelous villa on the Sicilian coast don't do it justice. The place far exceeded my expectations. It's bigger than it looks, just beautiful and first class touches throughout. Outstanding Sicilian hospitality as well, the house was well stocked with treats, wine and more.
The view is outstanding. It's easy to get to town and to nearly beaches. Well situated for excursions to Palermo, Castelbouno (enjoy a great meal at Giardino di Venere) and more. Make sure you rent a car that can get up the steep driveway.
The pool is just gorgeous and well maintained. To swim there while overlooking the Mediterranean, . . . what more could you ask for?
Internet and TV were provided as well (Sky, excellent for watching soccer, er, "football"). The kitchen is a pleasure to cook in. For Americans like us, who enjoy air conditioning and showers, this house takes good care of our needs.
Marco and his staff were very accommodating and easy to work with. Highly recommended!
Thanks so much Joe and say hello to Nora, has been a pleasure to host you. Marco
Fantastic Villa with amazing views!
We had a fantastic holiday at this Villa. Plenty of space inside and out and excellent facilities. So impressed with the level of detail and the correspondence pre, during and post holiday. Marco and his team were so helpful from start to finish. Amazing welcome package of food and drink, the Villa was also fully stocked with toiletries, towels, tea bags and so much more. Loved Cefalu its a beautiful town with a great beach and so much character and charm. (less than 5 min drive) We have 2 young boys who loved the swing seat (and the pool!) and we enjoyed many barbecues on the terrace. Would highly recommend!
Thank you so much Kate, happy you had good time.
We were 2 families with 4 teanagers. The house is extremely well appointed: there is everything you need in the kitchen and bathroom. We arrived on sunday and could still enjoy a nice breakfast with the provided bread, jam, eggs, butter etc. not to forget the fruits basket and sicilian pastry. The view from the pool as from the different terraces is astonished. Cefalu is just a few minutes away and has a lot of shops and a beautiful beach which was at this time of the year almost empty. We had a great time cooking all together in the open kitchen. We would definitely recommend it and come back again!
This was a marvelous villa. There were 8 of us (2 families with teenage children) who stayed for 8 nights and we loved the pool especially. The house was extremely comfortable with excellent air conditioning, and the outside terraces and furniture inside and out were all perfect. The numerous extras Marco provided helped to make our holiday:
- Bowls of lovely fruit and cakes and other bits left for our arrival gave us such a nice greeting, and also meant we didn't need to rush out to the shops on our first night
- The kitchen essentials such as oil, pasta, cereal, garlic etc were numerous and very welcome
- A well equipped kitchen with plentiful cutlery, crockery, pans, knives and even a blender
- Great Table Tennis, BBQ, and laundry facilities
- And the books and games and reading material were great and well used
Marco provided very good information and we ate in most of the restaurants he recommended. I would definitely recommend this villa
Yvette thanks so much for your review, we have done just our best.
Very, very nice villa, beautiful view and excellent service
My family and I had a very nice stay in this georgious villa. Marco and his staff where all very helpfull and everything was just perfect. We would like very much to return, and will give our best recommendations.
Thanks Pernille, i will be very happy to have you back, my best wishes.
Just one km outside Cefalù, you have two highways exits, to reach the villa. One hour of car from Palermo airport, one and half from Catania airport. The gate of the villa is on public road ss113 at the km 183 and 300 m.
I will be happy to give you all possibile devices to offer the best service: you have very nice restaurants in Cefalù, Castelbuono and by the coast. Plenty of cultural visits and attractions all around: the vulcano Etna, the charming Toarmina, the magnifique Ortigia, Agrigento's greek temples, the arab and norman art of Palermo, the medieval centre of Cefalù and Castelbuono. We will be happy to help you enjoy the best.
