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.

Cefalù è un paese che tiene molto all'ordine, per cui ci sono delle regole molto rigide da rispettare soprattutto per i rifiuti e la raccolta differenziata che è a giorni alterni a seconda della tipologia di rifiuto.
Giusy and her husband were kind enough to fetch us from the train station. The house was clean and well equipped for cooking. The beds were comfortable. The house was dark so it is easy to sleep but i would have liked more natural light. It is in a very convenient location, near the Duomo and 10 minute walk to the train station. It was a disappointment not to have access to the washer as we had been traveling for awhile and looking forward to washing our clothes. Also, there are few laundromats in Cefalu. Overall, it was a good place to stay.
We spraken af bij een tankstation in de buurt en daarvandaan werden we naar een gratis parkeerplek bij de haven begeleid. Vanaf de haven is het een paar minuten lopen naar dit appartement dat zich direct in een zijstraatje van het centrale plein met de Duomo bevindt. Een ideale plek om het mooie Cefalù te verkennen. Dicht bij cultuur, natuur en lekker eten. Cefalù is een erg leuk stadje waar we de vorige keer maar enkele uren hebben gespendeerd, maar waar je met gemak meerdere dagen door kunt brengen. Het appartement over twee verdiepingen hadden we met z'n tweeën, maar je kunt hier ook goed met een heel gezin verblijven. Giusy en Emanuele hebben er alles aan gedaan om ons welkom te voelen, er stond zelfs een flesje lekkere wijn klaar. We hebben dankbaar gebruikgemaakt van de pasta. Het contact via e-mail en sms was ook goed.
Aan te raden wanneer je lekker centraal in het hartje van de stad wilt verblijven. Op korte afstand van alle bezienswaardigheden en van het strand.
Giusy/Emmanuel were absolutely brilliant hosts, they made everything easy, excellent contact throughout the process. The apartment was lovely, very comfortable and also very central to everything in Cefalu. Cefalu is a beautiful location, food and drink very nice and reasonably priced. I would return again to this accomodation and I cant recommend it highly enough. Grazie and Ciao
Our stay in Cèfalu was perfect. The house is lovely, clean and well equipped. It is in the ideal location in the historic district of Cèfalu just moments from the beach. Giusy and her family were wonderful hosts. We were picked up from the airport and were treated to an informative tour through Palermo on the way our destination. I would happily stay here again and would definitely recommend it.
This is a lovely apartment in the historical center of Cefalu, right next to the Duomo. Don't come by car; you cannot drive in the old center (and you don't want to because of the small streets). Giusy did not speak much english, but with (website hidden)-translate we had a great exchange of information before we arrived. Then she brought her son when she picked us up from the train station so that he could translate for her, very thoughtful. The apartment has a large kitchen and is conveniently located in the center. Would definitely recommend this place!
This apartment was absolutely wonderful. Our host Giusy and her husband could not have been more welcoming. For the price of €50 her husband picked us up from the airport, gave us a driven tour around Palermo and dropped us to the apartment. They showed us around the place and left us fruit and water. The town itself is lovely with an amazing beach and nice restaurants. We could not have been happier with the apartment, the town and the hosts. Would highly recommend it.
We really loved the property. My husband and I stayed for 13 nights in July 2014. It was just as we expected it to be. The owners picked us up from the airport in Cefalu for 50€ which was very helpful for us, making our first visit to Sicily. The only problem was that the flight was delayed for an hour causing our hosts to wait. We did provide our flight details so we hoped the hosts might check our flight status before leaving for the airport., but we did feel sorry for them. The hosts were very friendly and helpful but their English was limited and our Italian non existent! Their English speaking daughter helped out on the phone. The location of the property was perfect, right in the middle of the historical centre, 2 minutes from the beautiful square and quite near the lovely beach. Although it was July, the accommodation was cool and we only needed to use the fans on 3 nights. It was nice to arrive to a bottle of wine and tomatoes in the fridge. We did not see the owners or their daughter after we arrived but we could have contacted them if necessary. All in all, one of our best holidays and we would definitely consider returning to Cefalu and staying in the same accommodation.

Simpatica, solare e socievole, questi sono i miei punti di forza. Amo stare a contatto della gente e confrontarmi con culture diverse; per questo una delle mie più grandi passioni è viaggiare. Mi piace cucinare i piatti tipici della mia regione, in particolar modo i dolci; sono sempre disponibile e pronta a dare una mano a chi ne ha bisogno.
Nella vita mi occupo di vendita diretta di beni durevoli oltre che della mia bella famiglia. Sarò veramente molto lieta di ospitarvi a casa mia, e di rendere il vostro soggiorno indimenticabile!!
