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.
The apartment is just as beautiful as the photos show, with a great view of the sea! Perfect for a couple, and also worked great for us with our 1,5 year old son.
It's a perfect location for enjoying Cefalu, super close to Duomo and in the middle of the old town. The bad thing about that is that it's not easily accessible by car, and not at all times. But Mari helped us on how to get to the apartment by car, and we parked the car in the train station for free most of the days we spent there.
We were there in late March, and it could have been nice with some heating at that time. But then again, most people go to Sicily in warmer months where heat is the main problem :)
WiFi was, as another reviewer commented, not always working so well. Good enough for searching and planning trips, not good enough for streaming music or movies.
All in all, warmly recommended and a great place to stay to get to know Cefalu!
We were late, but we were received well in the evening kindly and helpfully. Later we could arrange all things by texts. The place is indeed very nice. Beautiful direct sea view, spacious rooms and kitchen. The kitchen is well provided with all the basic appliances. It is tidy and stylish, but not fancy. The wifi signal in most part of the flat is weak, though, and (independently) so is the mobile network. The restaurant below (Al Porticciolo) is very nice. Parking is difficult - one should better leave the car on a side site on the Via del Faro and walk (5 min).
