And of course, in Cefalù you will also enjoy the wonders of Sicilian cuisine, praised all over the world for its flavours and aromas.

Cefalù also affords numerous enchanting possibilities for exploring the rest of Sicily with day-trips and excursions to smaller islands off the coast. Activities and sports around town include: tennis, football, volleyball, water sports, fishing, boating, water/aqua park, mountain climbing, cycling, horse-riding, and golf.

We look forward to hosting you soon - (Airport shuttle service can be arranged, if requested) - a friendly personal service guaranteed!

**UPDATE 2013: The noisy neighbour has now moved on so the quality of life should be much (and happily) improved.

*NOTE 2012: We have just recently become aware that the neighbour upstairs at times may cause noise for a brief period. This is something we cannot control. The apartment is nice and cheap and will suit those on a short stay.

  • Just awesome! Rosario is a wonderful host - he spent the whole afternoon with us showing best places of Cefalù, recommended a restaurant that was indeed very good and was just a great company, sharing his passion for his city. And he speaks fluent English!
    The apartment - as said in previous comments - is even better than it looks on photos. It's impecabbly clean and had everything we needed for our short stay in Cefalù. It's a bit outside the old city, but it's a short and nice walk. Highly recommendable.

  • We didn´t meet Dario himself, but his uncle Rosario took care of us. He was really nice and pickes us up at the train station and brought us to the apartment (10 min uphill). He gave us some really good tips and even showed us around in the center of the city.
    The apartment is clean and pretty big. It is located a bit up the hill. By foot it is around 10 min to the beach and also something like 10 min to the center. Coming back in the night can be a bit annoying…
    Basic stuff like oil, vinegar, salt, pepper or even soap and a sponge where missing.
    But still the apartment is good value!

  • Great apartment, very spacious, calm and clean. It's a little outside the center which is good so that you're not surrounded by noise and tourists. There is a marvelous bakery and a supermarket around the apartment and the beach is only 8 minutes away.
    The host, Dario's uncle Rosario, is very nice and helpful with a ton of great advices regarding everything near Cefalù and also very fun to talk with.
    We had a great time and definitely recommend you to stay there.

  • The apartment is great! Totally welcoming, spacious and REALLY clean! It's a little up the hill but that's not a problem at all. In fact, it's a lot better as you're not surrounded by tourists :-) A supermarket with great ham and cheese is just around the corner and there's a little street market close by (only on Wednesdays) which you shouldn't miss! Your host is Dario's uncle Rosario. He's been very helpful to us, told us tons of stories about the city and showed us all the must-sees. And he has an unique sense of humor ;-) Definitely A+!

  • The flat was big and very clean (there only missed some extra toilet paper). Dario's uncle is very friendly and he has a good sense of humour. He took the time to explain us everything, and also led us to a restaurant he recommended. Very nice person. We had a car so it was easy to go to the beach. Cefalu's beach was great... Thanks Rosario for the time and the fun.

  • It's a wonderful apartment with everything that you need. A supermarket is right around the corner. The beach is quite close. Only walking up the hill is a little exhausting but at least it helps burning all the calories from the delicious ice cream that they have! ;)

  • Это очень удобная, красивая и современная квартира. На самом деле она даже лучше чем на фотографии. Она действительно большая и думаю там очень комфортно могут жить двое и больше человек. Все самое необходимое было, включая теплые одеяла! Тут есть все что нужно: стиральная машина, холодильник, полностью оснащенная кухня, которой я правда практически не пользовалась!)) И даже большой балкон. Единственное что половину дороги до квартиры идет в гору (но с другой стороны это полезно для здоровья) и надо проходить через тунель, но Чефалу очень тихий и безопасный город, я каждую ночь ходила там ночью одна. Это даже не недостаток, особенно учитывая столь низкую цену для такой замечательной квартиры. Большое спасибо, за встречу и за чудесную экскурссию по Чефалу!

    Thank you for satying with us! Review translated in English by (website hidden): It is very comfortable, beautiful and modern apartment. In fact, it's even better than the pictures. It is really big and I think it is very comfortable and can live for two more people. Everything you need it, including blankets! Here is everything you need: washing machine, refrigerator, fully equipped kitchen, which I really enjoyed almost!)), And even a large balcony. The only thing that half of the road to the apartment going up the hill (but on the other hand it is good for health) and it is necessary to pass through the tunnel, but Cefalu is very quiet and safe city, every night I went there one night. It's not even the lack of, especially given such a low price for such a wonderful apartment. Thank you very much for the meeting and for the wonderful Excursions on Cefalu!

    Note: there are several equidistant ways to get to the apartment that don't require going through the underpass.

  • First of all the flat was very comfortable. There was also a shop in the vicinity where you can buy great Italian wine :) Thanks to Rosario who showed us the most beautiful places in Cefalu. Recommended!

  • We had a great time, the apartment is in a good location and Rossario was very helpful! Would stay there again. There wasn't any dish washing liquid though.

  • Dario's uncle was very nice! The apartment was a little further from the center than we expected, quite a walk uphill to get home. No wifi or air conditioning and it was hot! The apartment was beautiful, very clean and spacious. It was a bit noisy and bare bones, no dish soap or extra toilet paper. However, everything that was told that was going to be there was.
