About the property

The villa surrounded by a large well-kept garden, is located a few kilometers from Cefalù, in a residential area characterized by some beaches, both sandy and rocky, that can be reached on foot in a few minutes.

Three hundred meters from the villa there is the Palermo-Messina motorway junction, from where you can reach in less than an hour the city of Palermo and the beautiful park of the Madonie.

Nearby you will find a riding school, a water park, tennis courts and restaurants.

The area's mild climate allows the use of the villa throughout the year and in the colder months you can take advantage of the heat and relax by the fireplace.

Great location, fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights, as a family of four adult children with parents. The villa was immaculately clean and very comfortable, especially the beds. There were lots of towels and bedding, all the facilities were as described. The fourth bedroom, with a smaller double bed, is downstairs, along with a second living room. All the equipment you could wish for is supplied, and all in great condition. Especially welcome was the breakfast Agnese provided for us, since we arrived late on a Sunday night - very much appreciated. The patios were perfect for relaxing on during the day, and in the cooler evenings we had plenty of living room space to sit and read. Didn't try the TV but it is available; table tennis downstairs was much more popular. The garden was beautiful, trees screen you from the neighbouring houses which were mostly empty anyway. Location was perfect, with a five minute walk to Mazzaforno's lovely sandy beach, and a slightly shorter walk along rather overgrown paths to secret coves around the little peninsula. Our only problem was getting the van we rented up the driveway, which is very narrow - typical of many properties in the area. If you rent a big car in Sicily, be aware that this will be an issue in many places. In sum, the website photographs are fine but they don't really reflect how nice the villa is when you get there. I very much recommend it.

Just spending 2 weeks at this wonderful villa without hesitation we give our 5 STAR recommendation! Traveling as 2 couples there was more than enough room for all of us. The villa could easily accommodate a group of 6-8 people with plenty of areas to retreat for privacy. The layout of the villa is very open and airy. The upstairs has three very comfortable bedrooms. All with queen size beds, comfortable linens and ceiling fans. The main floor also has a bathroom with a shower, plenty of towels and light weight hotel robes for everyone, a nice touch! The kitchen is large by italian standards and is equipped with everything you need. A huge downstairs that has an additional bedroom. During the day it's pleasantly cool, making it perfect for napping, a Sicilian custom. It also has a large bathroom with a tub/shower that includes a washing machine. There are couches for lounging a full-size ping pong table and foosball. Downstairs is impressive in size! Familiar with Sicily having plenty of water can be an issue. This villa has plenty of water for everyone, hot and cold! The grounds are lovely! You're surrounded by fruitful olive trees and many other types of trees and plants that are groomed and landscaped. The patios make for additional living space with tasteful functional furniture. A nice place for morning coffee or evening cocktails or even a meal if you desire. The location couldn't be better. No stressing over finding the perfect beach for swimming, you simply leave your car parked in the driveway and take a short walk to a lovely sandy beach. There are a couple of resorts within walking distance. You are welcome dine in their restaurant or to have cocktails at their bar. They even invited us to sip our drinks on their terrace which has a spectacular view from Capo Zafferano to Cefalu. Simply amazing! They have a concierge service that will gladly call you a cab if you opt to take a short drive to Cefalu. A charming town complete with a beautiful sandy beach, great shopping, and several places to dine. Having used vacation rental properties the key delivery can sometimes be hectic. The owner and her daughter, both lovely, promptly greet you requiring a small deposit for cleaning and one for damages which she returned at our key return. With family in Porticello 30 minutes away we found it close enough for visits but far enough away to make time for relaxing. Day trips to Taormina, Agrigento, Turkish Steps and Palermo a sinch! Paradiso!

Incredibly good villa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this marvellous villa in June 2016. 4 grown ups and 2 children. I was surprised, how good equipped it is. I had everything for 1 year baby. Thanks to the hostess we had everything we needed. Near the villa, there is bus stay and in 15 min you are in Cefaly, so no problem to reach the city. If you want to have dinner in a restaurant there is a hotel Baja del Capitano 5 min from the villa. Well in general< very beautiful peacefull and nice place to stay.

Thank you for this opportunity, we were really glad to stay here and hope, we will return.

Definately one of the best vacations.

Sonne im Dezember

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren angenehm überrascht. Ein freundlicher Empfang durch die Vermieterin, in einem Haus das keine Wünsche offen lässt. Der Garten, das Haus, alles gepflegt und sauber. Die Lage inmitten von Oliven- und Zitrusbäumen auch im Dezember grün und teilweise blühend. Entfernung zur Stadt Cefalu ca. 5 Km , zum Sand- oder Felsenstrand ca. 500 Meter. Das Haus ist auch gut geeignet für einen längerfristigen Aufenthalt im Winter. Wir waren 4 Wochen da und Dank der Zentralheizung und dem Kaminfeuer konnten wir auch die etwas kühleren Abende warm und gemütlich gestalten. Eine Empfehlung an den Vermieter: Im Winter wird es doch früher am Abend dunkel als im Sommer, so greift man auch gerne auf das Fernsehprogramm zur Unterhaltung zurück. Aus diesem Grunde wäre es empfehlenswert, die Empfangsmöglichkeiten, über das ARD erste Programm hinaus zu erweitern. Freundliche hilfsbereite Vermieter, ein schönes Haus in guter Lage, moderater Preis! Wir empfehlen das Objekt gerne weiter.

Belle terrasse dans un cadre verdoyant

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans cette belle maison entouré d'un jardin fleuri à deux pas de la mer. Nous avons été bien accueillis par la propriétaire, qui a su communiquer avec nous en français, tout s'est très bien passé pour la réservation ainsi que notre arrivée et départ.

Nous étions au calme et sans vis à vis, dans un environnement tranquille. C'était un pur bonheur pour nous citadins de nous réveiller au chant des oiseaux matin et avoir le choix de deux terrasses, à l'ombre ou au soleil - celle côté cuisine avec une grande table, ou celle très élégante côté jardin avec ses grands fauteuils. La maison est spacieuse et bien équipée, avec une salle de jeu au sous-sol (il manquait seulement un allume-gaz, et les catetières électriques semble être inconnues en Sicile !) et la literie est confortable. L'endroit est idéalement situé pour visiter Cefalu ou des excursions sur la côte et dans la Madonie.

Il y a deux plages accessibles à pied, l'une en descendant au bout de la rue à droite, l'autre un peu plus sauvage en allant vers l'ouest par un chemin moins facile, peu entretenu. Il y a aussi la plage de Cefalu qui est grande, belle et très propre. Notre seul regret était de ne pas rester plus longtemps dans ce bel endroit.
