Apartment in a wonderful location, extremely close to delicious restaurants and yummy gelato. The apartment was quite warm, but we had a few fans to cool it off. Check was very easy, and they were flexible with checkout- allowing us to check out later in the day. Loved Cefalu. Thanks for a great stay!

We loved our time in Cefalu! Ileana and her father were so helpful and accommodating. The location is perfect! You can walk everywhere, you don't need a car, the kitchen is a great little spot to cook, and the patio is perfect for eating dinner and watching the sunset. We had the best time and will definitely be back!

The location of the flat is perfect. When you leave the house you find many bars and restaurants and to the next city Beach you have to walk only a few minutes. If you travel by car, as we did, you have to consider, that you have to park your car at the hourbour, what is aber 10 min by feet. The alleys of cefalu are were tight so it is the best to leave the car outside of the old town. The highlight of this flat is the roof-deck with its wonderful ocean view. The rest of the flat is small but comfortable, perfect for a couple. The check-in with Geatano, Ileanas father, was without any problems. He explains everything you have to know for your stay, so we didn't had any further questions during our stay.

Staying in Cefalù was one of our best choices for our vacation in Sicily. The apartment was super clean and nice. We loved how cozy it was. It is a bit smaller than we thought but it was still a very good place to stay. We would definitely recommend staying here!

The apartment is perfectly located in the outskirts of the old town and everything you want to discover in Cefalu is nearby. The neighbourhood also has an authentic feel to it, which we really liked. The view from the terrace is very nice - you have the sea in front of you - and we enjoyed many breakfasts and dinners to the sound of the waves. We also appreciated the view from the kitchen from where you see the lighthouse and the road that leads to the port. The apartment in itself is small, but has everything you would need. The communication with our host Ileana was super smooth the whole way and on arrival we were welcomed by Ileanas father Gaetano, who was very helpful, kind and service minded. We are very happy with our stay!

Amo il sole ed il mare e passeggiare a piedi o in bici e per questo amo Cefalù, una tra le eccellenze siciliane in quanto a qualità della vita. Sono un Architetto con la passione per l'archeologia ed il restauro. Sono host da alcuni anni e mi occupo della gestione delle prenotazioni, insieme a mio padre Gaetano. Ho un brevetto 1°stella CMAS per le immersioni subacquee. Sono socia dell'associazione "ITIMED "(itinerari nel mediterraneo) che crea percorsi turistici relazionali, e socia del "gruppo archeologico italiano valle dello Jato". Mi piace conoscere persone, luoghi, cibi e vivere la vita col sorriso!
