Spacious and central flat with spectacular sea view in the heart of the old town. Free wifi and washing machine.
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. The beach is 50 mt far, the area is full of the finest restaurants and pizzerie, wine bar and cafés.
The flat features free Wi-Fi connection and washing machine.
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.
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).
We arrived in Cefalù late at night after renting a car, driving from the Palermo airport and getting lost... And Mari was waiting at the apartment for us when we arrived! Thankfully Mari's English is great... Because our italian is non-existent. The restaurant below the apartment was fantastic as we ate dinner there a couple of times. The apartment is very spacious, amazing view, everything we could have imagined and better! Mari even helped me by calling a long lost relative of mine who lives in Cefalu :)
Thank you for the great apartment and we will definitely see you next time we visit!
Ein sehr schönes Appartment mitten im Leben einer urigen Stadt. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt - obwohl das zweite Schlafzimmer kein Fenster hat und ein wenig eng ist für 2 Personen.
Loved our stay at Mari & Francesco's apartment! Made for a comfortable and very memorable family trip to Cefalu. The location is ideal, in the middle of the old town centre where it's mainly pedestrianised except for local residential traffic. This can be a problem if you have a lot of luggage to bring with you, as you'll have to carry/drag it through the cobblestone roads. You can drive through but only for limited times (check with your hosts for confirmation). The apartment is located on the first floor (up one flight of stairs, so no wheelchair or pram access) and has a beautiful view over the rocky beach and restaurants and out to sea. Sitting on the balcony at night we had the same experience as the diners below except for the price tag! The apartment has everything you could need for simple self catering, but with a full kitchen. Also has hair dryer, washing machine, beach umbrella and beach racket set (found the beach accessories particularly thoughtful!). The main living area faces out to the beach and has two doors that can be left open to take in the views and occasionally, sea breezes. There are no screens on the doors so bring your bug repellent! Particularly during summer as you need to leave the doors open 24/7. There is no air conditioning in the apartment but an electric fan was provided, which was in the bedroom and circulated the air in there, although the bedroom is quite closed off (no windows and only the one door leading to main living area/kitchen for access to balcony). This was not an issue for us because temperature highs in August were only 28-30 degrees Celsius. The bedroom is very large with plenty of space for an infants cot and lots of luggage, as was our case. Bathroom was roomy enough but only with a handheld shower attachment in the bath to shower with, which we've discovered is very Sicilian! We found Cefalu to be beautiful and kept very clean. There's plenty of stuff to do if you please including many day trips, or you can simply spend your time wandering through the small alleyways; swimming off the rocky beach surrounding the old town or strolling to the long stretch of sandy beach just near the historical centre (10min from apartment), where you can also find some beach bars/cafés. Overall a wonderful trip in Cefalu, thanks for hosting us Mari & Francesco!
The house was fantastic!the views were awesome and the most inportant: it is like pictures in the website.its is located in the centre of old cefalu it's perfect. Even though, tourist cars are not awolled to go there but the walk there is beautiful and gives you chance to see the town. I recommend this house!
Everthing in the apartment was as expected except that the wifi WWSD extremely limited to only one room and provided by a third party service where you needed to sign up. A part from that, the spectacular view from the balcony where we spent breakfast and home night dinners save the stay!
