We rent, for both long and short periods, wonderful country house on two floors.
The house is in the middle of the hills of Tardara Natural Park, in front of Tyrrenian Sea and Eolie islands.
Perfect place for artists, writers and everyone who loves spend his/her time absorbed in the beauty and the calm of nature.
The house is sorrounded by a 5000 mq enclosed garden, growed with flowers, fruit trees (olives, oranges, lemons, old oaks, almonds, figs) and palmas. It is just 1 km far away from the sea (15 minutes walking) and just 15 km far from the Cefalù historical city center.
The building is divided in two flats:
1) The flat on the upper floor is organized as a very lightly loft, with kitchen, bathroom and a big and amazing terrace looking at the sea ( 3 beds plus 1 bed extra).
2) The flat on the ground floor has a big livingroom, two bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom (4 beds plus 1 bed extra). It also has a outside – kitchen, perfect for cook in the hotter days!
We rent the whole house, but also the two flats separately. In the both solutions is included the use of the garden and the wi –fi.
Prices per night:
Upper apartment: 55 Euro
Bottom apartment: 75 Euro
Entire house: until 3 nights: 100 Euro; until 6 nights: 95 Euro; more than 6 nights: 90 Euro.
We spent 3 wonderful days in the upper apartment for New Years. The communication with Gaia was easy and totally helpful, she answered all our questions immediately, so it was an easy decision for us to choose this accommodation.
Everything was lovely prepared for our stay when we arrived, it was totally clean and tidy. There was wood, so we could use the fireplace, this gave our stay a even more romantic atmosphere. The apartment is like show on the pictures, but in fact it is even nicer and a really special place, with a absolute fantastic atmosphere. The view is totally amazing, as there are windows all around you wake up surrounded by nature and the sea - you can even see the liparian islands! All around the house there are lovely little deco elements and everything has been created in a creative and caring manner with love for details and good taste. There were candles, a lot of useful stuff to cook, and even some bottles of drinking water.
The house is situated on a hill (so make sure you have a good car to reach it) and therefor it is absolutely calm and private - perfect place for a couple that wishes to spent some qualitytime. You can enjoy the nature around, go for walks and visit the lovely town Cefalu. You can quickly reach the autoroute, what allows you to make trips around Sicily (if you really want to leave this unique place) - perfect location!
We totally recommend this special place and deeply hope to come back to spend some more time there soon!!!
Mille grazie a Gianni, Emanuela & Gaia - we couldn´t have had a better place for New Years! Also thank you so much for sending us our keys that we had forgotten in the apartment ;) (I hope the post is able to manage the rest.. ;) )
The house in Milianni is amazing. Set in lovely countryside, high in the hills, overlooking the sea. Lovely and peaceful. But it is the artistic touches everywhere which we enjoyed.
Gianni was very helpful with places to eat and drink.
We were able to visit Cefalu and Mt Etna with no problem.
Thank you Gianni and Emanuela for a lovely stay.
The house is great. Gaia's father in law Gianni welcome us at 9pm (we arrived on a ferry in the evening) and showed us around. He was very helpful and courteous during our stay, always available by phone.
The house is fantastic, made by Gianni and his family, very artistic, with nice touches, great outdoor spaces overlooking the sea. The kitchen is well equipped and the rooms inside are spacious.
There is a nice place to swim, safe for children, about 15 mins driving from the house in Castel de Tusa, on the left of the marina, a great recommendation from Gianni.
The house is better than advertised and I would highly recommend staying here.
Such a pretty place! Not the cleanest on earth but the view is amazing and it's so nice and quiet up there. We stayed in the downstairs apartment for the first couple of nights (because upstairs was full) and later on we moved upstairs. Both apartments are stunning and beautifully decorated. We would recommend not to rent the tiniest car cause the dirtroad is pretty steep and bumby.
We stayed 5 nights at the country house in the lower apartment. Gianni and Emanuela were very easy to communicate with and were in time to pick us up at the nearby road. They welcomed us very warmly and are really nice people.
The house itself is in the middle of a nature reserve and the view is really amazing. It is very quiet up there and we enjoyed relaxing in the garden or to make little walks in the surroundings. The interiour is very rustic and, like mentioned before, pictures are better than reality, but the house is charming.
We have to remark that the place was quite dusty as if it wasn´t cleaned up for a long time. We got used to it quickly and felt comfortable there, but, with regard to the rate, some things should be improved like the cleaning or the shower head for example.
We stayed 3 nigths. The house is basic, pictures are better than reality.
The location near cefalu is a good point (15km) but the access of the house is difficult. You have a small city near the house where you have grocery. The view is nice.
Some points could be improved: cleaning, bed, the welcoming note ( restaurant and beach recommendation for example)
For us, The house was ok but a little bit expensive in comparaison with other places in sicily where we have stayed ( agroturismo, hotel)
We spent two amazing weeks in this wonderfull house. Everything went very well, Gianni and his family were so kind to us and they rent us the house with the full trust. We can only recomend it to everyone who likes to spend some time in the countryside, in the middle of beautiful nature. The only thing which dissapointed us a little was the fact, that we haven´t seen any porcupine.
The perfect place to enjoy the beautifulness of Sicily. A fantastic appartment/country house, well equipped and with a lovely view over the Sea. The garden has exotic plants - at least for us coming from Denmark. The outdoor kitchen (there is one inside also) was the place where we spent most time, because it offered wind and shadow at the same time.
We recommend this house, if you like to be in a quiet place.
This house has the most spectacular views. It is absolute bliss. Communication with Gaia & Gianni prior to our stay was smooth and timely. As the property is difficult to locate using GPS, we had arranged to meet Gianni on a nearby main road. We were then led up the main driveway to the property. Note, it is a very steep drive and a car is necessary. The house had all the necessary essentials and was clean. We thoroughly enjoyed eating on the balcony and watching the sun go down. Certainly recommend this property.
This is a really special place. I don't think the pictures do it justice, but it would be hard to capture the breeze blowing in from the big window over the kitchen (upstairs) or the panoramic view from the terrace in a 2D photo...
It was a great spot to relax, make a nice meal to eat on the terrace, and take a nap in the hammock. You can find secluded little beaches off the road, too. Emanuela (Gaia's mother) was very quick to respond to our incessant questions during out stay, and very kind. We rented the whole house (both upstairs and downstairs), which was far more space than the two of us needed, but I'm glad we did. It would have a felt a little weird to be in such a secluded little spot if there were other people there, too. I'd recommend just splurging and renting the whole house, if it is an option. And I'd definitely recommend going to check it out. I wish we'd had more than 2 nights.
