Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed for four nights at the apartment as part of our honeymoon trip to Sicily. The apartment was lovely and perfectly comfortable. The pool was great. The views were spectacular and we loved our third housemate the cat who was so friendly! The apartment is a short drive rather than a short walk from Cefalu town centre but this suited us very well as we wanted to be slightly away from things. Luciano and his wife and family were very welcoming and helpful. We would definitely come again to this apartment and to Cefalu.

Villa Ilardo

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Lorenzo's apartment. The property is well maintained and has excellent facilities. The view from the terrace over the sea to the Aeolian Islands is beautiful. It has a very good swimming pool. Nearby Cefalu is a great resort with plenty to see and do. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay; many thanks to Lorenzo and his wife for their warm welcome and continued help during our stay.

Fantastic Welcome, Location and Stay

  • 5 of 5

From start to finish of this experience, Lorenzo, his wife Sally and all his family and friends, helped us feel welcome at their Villa in Cefalu. With a fantastic finish, brilliant outdoor eating space and fantastic pool, the accommodation was ideal for my wife, 3 boys 7, 5 and 4 and I and provided a great spot to go and explore Sicily. Throughout the stay, we were treated like genuine guests and my sons and I were actually invited into his house to watch a football match one evening. A fantastic host, accommodation and holiday. 5 Stars

This villa will not disappoint you

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa for 5 nights – 2 adults and 2 children. All in all a very pleasant stay. We loved the terrace and the pool where we always could find a shady place to relax in the afternoon. The view is magnificent and in clear weather you can see all the way to Stromboli. The apartment was very clean and well equipped. Only thing we missed were wine glasses, but our lovely hosts that live next doors fixed that promptly. The closest beach is within walking distance and it’s a small beach with pebbles.

Don’t miss restaurant Al Faro (no pre-bookings available) and Le Chat Noir (pre-booking recommended).

Pro: Lovely hosts. Large apartment, terrace, pool and a smashing view. Two fully equipped bath rooms.

Cons: A bit long walk to the village but if you have a car it’s no problem.

Stunning view, central location, immaculate apt.

  • 5 of 5

Having never been to Cefalu before, I chose this property based on reviews and information on this listing. Everything listed is accurate, and the owners were exceptionally helpful in every respect. We had ample privacy, yet we were close to the center of town. The owners even helped us find an open grocery store on Sunday!

The view from our patio was magnificent. We spent so much time visiting other parts of Sicily, we didn't have an opportunity to really enjoy the pool. But it was clean, sparkling in the sunlight, and the chairs were very comfortable.

Our favorite restaurant in the old town was Il Covo del Pirata. Make a reservation for the balcony over the sea, and watch the sunset while dining.

This was a fantastic location and apartment for the three of us - my husband and I, and my brother. I think you'll enjoy it as much as we did.
