My wife and I stayed a week here enjoying the brilliant apartment - this is authentic "old Italy" - mile high ceilings, two balconies overlooking the Duomo and square and loads of space. The whole atmosphere is laid back with the owners Angelo and Stephano delightful chaps. You must understand though that it is in the style of apartments (rather than a hotel) with a limited reception and service in relation thereto (i.e not 24 hours) . It is brilliant for sitting on the balcony and watching the hubbub of the square - also a roof terrace is available but we preferred the beach which is fine - although not great for swimming - the red flag was flying most of the time! There are loads of restaurants, shops and facilities in Cefalu with a walk to the Castle recommended (steep). The owners will assist with organisation (car hire, taxis, Bike hire etc)- they arranged the transfer from and to Palermo which was very smooth. Overall ideal for a week - there is a bit of early morning "services noise" from the square and a general drone the rest of the time from the numbers of people having coffee and doing what people do in such places.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A dream holiday in one of the most celebrated and fascinating places in Cefalu. Eight suites where you can live the atmosphere of a noble Sicilian house with all its perfumes and flavours. The colourful explosion of the interior decoration contrasts with the period furniture creating a charming elegant mixture. Wide windows and balconies look directly on the main square (Piazza Duomo), spectacular terraces open on the adjacent picturesque alleys. From the spacious solarium-terrace you have a wonderful view of the Cathedral, its towers, the blue sea, the Eolian Islands and the impressive mountain "The Rocca" dominating Cefalu. ... more less
