Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday villa in Cefalù

Il Mulino is a stylish new way to discover the pearl of the Mediterranean.

The hotel invites you to experience a unique and unforgettable experience in a recently refurbished, housed in a former water mill dating back to the early 1800s.

The feeling of luxury and refinement is amplified by a furniture full of details like the ancient steps that will transport you on a journey through time.

Beautiful property, amazing situation

  • 5 of 5

The property is simply beautiful. Converted old stone building set in a garden of over-hanging branches and an olive grove. The property benefits from a number of different terrace spots to catch the light at different times of the day. The outside kitchen terrace was a particular favourite. It's a very cool building as air circulates around it well. 20 minute walk down the hill to the beach, make sure you have a small car to navigate the roads up to the house. Internet connectivity is limited but on holiday that can be a good thing....!

Charming is a good description

  • 4 of 5

Charming, unusual, clean, located in orange grove, sea view, friendly, helpful owners.

One word of caution, the property is on three levels so lots of steps and stairs, including spiral staircase.

I would certainly recommend this property to friends and family

Beautiful place in a stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

On arrival we were overwhelmed with the setting and how beautiful the Mill was. Everything you could wish for and more. We were in beautiful Cefalu but when in the Mill it seemed that we were miles from anywhere!

We were met by Fabio when we arrived who was very welcoming and gave us plenty of info on the places to visit and recommended places to eat that were absolutely outstanding.

We booked this trip for our wedding anniversary and we were not disappointed. We would highly recommend this place to couples wanting a very romantic setting or group of friends wanting a very relaxing holiday - the Mill is very spacious and very well equipped.

This place is a little piece of heaven!

A Charming Mill indeed!

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted by Fabio who kindly showed us around the house and gave us some fantastic recommendations for things to see and do and which were the best restaurants in town. The house itself is gorgeous - lovingly restored with modern features but utilsing original structures and retaining all of its charm and character. For two guests there is a huge amount of space and all the facilities you could need with a very well appointed kitchen. The multiple outside spaces include a shady patio and two terraces with tables and chairs which made eating and relaxing outside very pleasant. The views from the property out to sea are outstanding. I would highly recommend this house!

My wife and I stayed at Il Mulino at the end of August. Our first impressions were what a fabulous and unique property in a wonderful location. This impression remained unchanged for the rest of our stay. The Mill was equipped with everything we could possibly need and offered us a peaceful, romantic and thoroughly relaxing place to stay. The sandy beach, many say the best on Sicily, was reached in under 10 minutes, walking down a rustic road with plenty of views to occupy us. Our evenings were occupied exploring the many restaurants and bars that Cefalu has to offer and again, we weren’t disappointed by the relaxed nature of the town and its history and culture or the excellent food. Thank you to Fabio and Dario for making us very welcome and for several of their local recommendations. Bellissimo!

On a passé une semaine au calme en écoutant le son douce de la petite rivière qui coule juste en bas de la terrasse.

On a apprécié le soin et l'attention porté à chaque détail de cet ancien moulin réaménagé au milieu des orangers, à deux pas du centre de Cefalù.

Quelle délice!
