The apartment is centrally located, close to the cathedral of Cefalù and the main street, close to the sea with beaches and \ or cliffs, and entertainment venues, easily reached by any means and it is close the parking for the cars or for the boats. The apartment is on two floors: the ground floor there is a living room with a sofa that can become a double bed, there is a fully equipped kitchen, and there is also a bathroom with shower, upstairs there is a double bedroom with bathroom and also as a laundry room and a bedroom with two bunk beds. Our apartment is completely renovated, the neighborhood is very quiet and friendly and equipped with ATMs of different agencies. Within walking distance there are restaurants and bars where you can enjoy a fresh seafood and specialties of Sicilian cuisine from breakfast until after dinner. The town of Cefalu is very quaint and melting pot of cultures, it is mainly developed around the cathedral in Arab-Norman style and the main course (course Ruggero) where you can also go shopping very pleasant between craft shops, jewelry stores and ice cream shops. Following the entire course, at the end of this you get along the beach, a meeting place for tourists, but not only, who want to relax and meet new people while enjoying a glass of wine or a cocktail, refreshed thanks to the sea breeze: most of the locals, in fact, is on the sea (there are restaurants, bars, pubs, discos, pubs etc). Very interesting are the day trips organized during the year, and departure to major cities and towns in Sicily: Taormina (Gole dell'Alcantera), Mount Etna, Enna and Piazza Armerina and visit the museum of Morgantina, Cathedral of Monreale, Palermo and other places. Most important are instead organized the trip in the summer to the Aeolian Islands always leaving from the port of Cefalù. Experience highly suggested! Of course, we are ready to provide any other information and advice to make your stay unforgettable.
All can be easily reached on foot, and this is also an opportunity to detox from the smog and forget the car keys; Central Station Cefalu takes 15 minutes to walk to our house. However, it is possible to rent a car if you want to be autonomous and independent for some excursions out of town. it is also possible to take long walks climbing the rock behind the cathedral, to enjoy the wonderful views offered by the country.
Giusy e suo marito sono gentilissimi e cortesi, hanno aspettato il nostro arrivo in una giornata a dir poco fredda e uggiosa per spiegarci tutto sull'appartamento!
La casa è in ordine e pulitissima come da annuncio, si trova nel centro storico di Cefalù, a due passi dal duomo e dal corso principale.
Consiglio vivamente di soggiornare qui, tranne se siete telefonodipendente, i cellulari non hanno alcun segnale!
Great location within the old town though the adjacent motor cycle parking can be a bit noisy unless you close the bedroom balcony doors. Good clean facilities and free wi-fi in the nearby Duomo square. Guisey & Emanuele were charming hosts and transferred us from the airport to Cefalu (50 euro) with a proud tour of old Palermo on the way. Very well recommended.
We arrived in Palermo on a late flight, and had made arrangements to meet Giusy in Palermo before going to Cefalu. But then we got stuck in traffic, and couldn't find the place to meet. Nobodys fault, but with the language barrier it was a bit of a challenge. Everything went well with a little help from Giusys english-speaking daughter though. No worries!
Cefalu was lovely, wish we could have stayed longer, and the apartement was placed in the middle of the old part of town. Close to the beach, close to the duomo. Couldn't have been much better. We climbed on La Rocca, went for a dip in the water at the beach, and had a jolly good time.
Giusy and her husband was friendly and helpful, and we was happy that the place was equipped with water, some tomatoes and fruit, toilet paper etc, so that we didn't have to rush out for shopping on the evening of the arrival.
Cefalu in late july is hot, but we had fans on both floors, so the heat was no problem. Some noise from the street, especially from scooters, might be a nuisance for the light sleeper, but it didn't bother us much.
So to sum it up: This is good value for money, I would have noe problem recommending it to others, and would definetly consider staying there again if I ever get back to Cefalu.
The reservation was canceled 29 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had a very nice stay in Cefalu! The place is perfectly located in a center, near the sea, in the ancestral house. The house was clean cozy and cute. The hosts were very helpful, uncomplicated and accommodating. We felt that the hosts cares about us. They took care of our arrival, advised what we can see beautiful places in the city. We will never forget the generosity of these hosts! We very much recommend staying there!
Esperienza davvero a cinque stelle! L'appartamento in pieno centro storico di Cefalù è accoglente e molto confortevole. Ospitalità eccellente da parte dei proprietari, sempre pronti a darci utili e preziosi consigli. Che aggiungere di piu'...provare per credere!
Superbe duplex en plein centre de Cefalù. Notre hôte fut très cordial malgré un retard conséquent de notre part. Le studio est idéal pour les séjours de longue durée. Le duomo est littéralement à votre porte.
La permanenza è stata ottima!
Giusy e Emanuele sono affabilissimi! Sono molto servizievoli, anzi, ci hanno aiuto per tutte le cose! Ci hanno spiegato con passione molte cose di storia, di tradizione, d'architettura (Emanuele è architetto ;-)).
Il posto ad affittare è proprio bello. La citta di Cefalu è veramente piacevole. Tutti i viaggi si fanno a piedi. La casa è ubicata nel centro storico, a un minuto dei negozi, a un minuto del duomo, a due minuti della spiaggia!! Le stanze sono pulite e molto buone.
Non dimenticheremo mai la generosita e la ricchezza infinite di questi anfitrioni e della Sicilia!
