“Absolutely Perfect!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Cefalu itself is a wonderful town to stay in and la Finestra sul duomo is perfectly located right in the centre. It's just opposite Duomo, so quite easy to find. The only problem we had was that when we arrived we couldn't get our hire car into the town. It is closed off to traffic from around 9.30am until1pm, and again after 4.30pm. However our absolutely wonderful host, Guiseppe, drove us back to where our car was parked and then we followed him back to unload the luggage and then followed him down the road to where visitors can park their cars for free all day. After introducing us to the delightful, Lourdana, (not sure about the spelling) he invited us out for dinner that night. We went to a most beautiful restaurant by the sea and everything was laid on for us at Guiseppe's expense. After dinner Guiseppe walked us around the town pointing out the various 'must see' sites by night. The apartment is well appointed and is on 3 levels. It is small, but certainly comfortable and has the feel of a place more roomy. If you aren't very mobile, the many steps up to the apartment may be an issue for you. We can't recommend this accommodation highly enough. Many, many thanks to you Guiseppe.

Room Tip: There are only 4 apartments. We didn't have a balcony, but there were at least 1 or 2 rooms whic...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A small, comfortable, fully-equipped apartment for you to enjoy an unforgettable holiday in the heart of wonderful Cefalu, which has been visited for centuries by travelers from all over the world. Our apartment is located in the town square in front of the extraordinary Arab-Norman Cathedral, one of the architectural jewels of Sicily. From here it is possible to walk to the Mandralisca Museum, which hosts a famous painting by Antonello da Messina; to start a walk up La Rocca, the hill overlooking the town from where a breathtaking view of the coast from Palermo to Messina can be enjoyed; or to go for a swim in the clear, blue sea near the picturesque local fishermen's port, along the street of the shopping. From Cefalu it is easy to travel by train to Palermo; to the magnificent Madonie Mountains and their nature park; to all the main sites of Western Sicily (Agrigento, Piazza Armerina, Catania, Taormina and the volcano Mount Etna) with organized trips or with public buses; and also to the unique Aeolian Islands. Our apartment is on the first floor of Palazzo Villelmi, which dates back to the 15th century and still has a simple corner window from that period with a little column in the middle. It is a valuable document of the bourgeoisie taste from the Renaissance, showing also the signs of an inscription on its arch. The apartment is composed of 2 beautiful balconies overlooking the main square, living room with kitchenette, bathroom with shower, single bedroom, double bedroom in the loft and a sofa bed in the living room. ... more   less
