Located in the most charming and characteristic street of the old town, this flat features a master bedroom with comfortable double bed and a sofa, a small room for luggage storage, a bathroom and a large kitchen completely equipped. In the kitchen, from the large balcony literally over the sea, you will enjoy the breathtaking view of the sea and the Cefalù coast.

Interaction with Guests

Beach is very close to the flat.
Other Things to Note
It's very important to communicate a valid mobile number and the estimated time of arrival.
There's a small cleaning fee, but it is the guest's responsibility to leave the kitchen clean, carrying away the trash and do not leave food upon check out.
Location is amazing, right in the center but be careful about the parking, it is a very narrow street where people walk all the time. There is no parking on the street and the nearest parking area is 15 min by walking. We have to briefly stop in front of the apartment and offload the luggage and my husband had to quickly move the car.
The view is fascinating and you leave all the noise of Cefalu behind you.
Apartment is old but nice.
I loved staying at Mari and Francesco's apartment. Great position, great views and great hosts. Mari was kind enough to let me leave my bags in an adjoining apartment, due to a late flight out of Sicily. I would recommend Mari's apartment for anyone wanting to stay in the old town of Cefalu.
La vue sur la mer est magnifique ! Décoration sombre et de bon goût.
La cuisine pourrait être plus équipée pour les amoureux de la cuisine sicilienne. La chambre est peux lumineuse. Bien situé pas trop loin de la plage. L'accueil de l'hôte est trop vite expédié.
Spacious attractive apartment in a good location in old Cefalu.
Francesco was very helpful in finding a parking place.
Excellent views of the coastline from the balcony.
Loud music from the bar next door on one night (Thursday) but apart from that very quiet.
The Apartment was as advertised. Mari and Francesco were kind and helpfull. The balcony view is lovely. We decided to stay longer in Cefalu and wanted to extend our stay with Mari but the place was booked. The wi/fi was weak in the kitchen and balcony but Francesco is working on relocating the wi/fi transmission point or adding a booster in the kitchen.
Excellent location for exploring the old town; not luxury, but clean with a comfortable bed. The flat is as shown in the pictures, but could use a sofa or someplace more to sit to make it cozy. While the hammock looks great in photos, it wasn't much for sitting in.
Francesco and Mari were very patient when we were behind schedule and met us relatively promptly.
Except for the view I do not recommend this place. The apartment is very poorly equipped, it is cold and humid ( when we ask for a heater, Maria and Francesco brought a small portable heater for the whole apartment) internet is functioning very badly, we did not receive any blanket for the bed expect for the used ones left in the small room as "additional blankets", it is very dark ( there are no windows in the rooms) . When Airbnb becomes a business this is exactly the kind of place you get.
I'm very surprised to read this review.
I'm reading a lot of false informations about our apartment.
It's a flat in front of the sea, there was no air conditioning at the time you were there (we just installed it) and you booked the apartment knowing that.
I can understand maybe you expected a hot weather just for visiting Sicily, but March is cold even here. We did what we could, we buyed a portable heater to help, but we couldn'd do more than that.
It's important for me to say that we have guests all year in that flat, and no one ever complained in 7 years about the cold (the flat is warm 'cause there's a pizzeria oven just below the floor).
Internet is not perfect to download stuff but is good to plan your travel and check emails etc. We will definitely take a look at the device to improve the service.
I personally put 2 clean blankets in the small room and clean extra pillows. I will not allow being accused of leaving used blankets around!
There's a giant balcony and the room with no window is used just as linen and blankets storage and to put luggage in.
The apartment was never and it's not humid. That's absolutely a lie!
About the poor equippement, well, we even provided a crib with linens and a baby chair. I have no idea what you expected more than this.
For us Airbnb is a serious business and we take it very seriously.
