We have just returned from a week in Cefalu, we didnt travel round Sicily even so I do believe that Cefalu is a must see place!!
It is a truly beautiful spot, the choice of restaurants is endless and the quality of food is generally very good, the cost of eating out is very cheap!! The buildings are just beautiful and lovely to just look at and admire.
The beach is quite small but lovely, there is a walk way along the beach, everybody seems to stop and look over the wall at the sunbathers but that is part of the fun!! The sun sets are amazing and some of the restaurants look onto the water and you feel almost part of it!! Also the complimentry Limoncello you get after almost every meal is very nice :)
The old town is a lovely place to wander round with lots of nooks and cranies to explore, the buildings are so interesting and the little shops cute to wander round, lots of places to stop for ice cream or coffee. It is a living town not a resort and so much more interesting than any resort, you get a chance to see real people living real lives, which is always interesting when visiting a new country.
The Duomo is beautiful and well worth a visit also.
Fresh fruit and veg is available at every cornor and is so cheap its amazing, it tastes like it has just been picked and it probably has!!
We were lucky enough to get an apartment with a sea view, we went through homeidays.com, we had a lovely apartment, it was small but the view from the balcony was amazing!!! I hated saying goodbye to it!!! There was a building site next door, but there were only a couple of guys on the site so it wasnt too noisy. We used http://www.robertourcefalu.com recomended by vagabonda for transfers and they were excellent, rang the lady we were renting from and arranged where to met, I would highly recomend them!!
We received excellent advice from the Cefalu forum lots of helpful hints!! Again thanks to Vagabonda!!!! I think I have said amazing way too many times........ but I cant find enough words to compliment this place!!
Cefalu is beautiful, well worth a visit and I hope to visit again soon!!!Edited: 31 May 2012, 22:36
