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.

Cefalu is a great place to spend some days. Apartment was exceptionally clean, you have got everything you need. Everything was wonderful, but a little difficult way back from the beach because of a walking uphill. We had very good staying.
Very nice place!everything is like in the description.also special thanks to Rosario who was very polite and helpful!!!we will come again to this place!
The flat was beautiful, clean and very cozy! You can find there everything what you need. You can cook, you'll find all equipment. Near is a groceries shop, that is really comfortable because you get it for 5 minutes. That is good place for the rest!
We came to Cefalu for just 2 nights but had a great time. It is beautiful city with great old town and nice beach. The apartment was 15 minutes walking from beach. It's bit on a hill, but very clean and good equipped. There is safe free parking next to the apartment. No wifi:-(
The apartment was really nice and clean, and felt like a real home. The communication with Dario's uncle (Rosario) was also fine and fast. The only downside is that we arrived really late in the evening and had to be instructed in a lot of stuff about the apartment and that seemed a bit too much.
Anyways, Rosario was nice and really wanted to help.
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!
Italian-American living in London but travel often back home to Cefalu' Sicily. Happy to introduce others to the charm of this lovely town where I spent my childhood playing carefree in its medieval streets. My Uncle is a lovely character who will be on hand to help you as much as you need during your stay.
