The space

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.

Le regole sono poche e semplici, ma teniamo che vengano rispettate.
Il divertimento è concesso e garantito ma sempre con moderazione, quindi no agli schiamazzi e/o all'eccessiva baldoria, per garantire il giusto riposo e relax a tutti; perciò teniamo molto al contegno e all'educazione dei comportamenti. Soprattutto vogliamo il rispetto per la casa e la pulizia dei locali.
Se viaggiate con animali, vi raccomandiamo il loro controllo e la loro responsabilità.
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.

Best location, right in the centre of town, near everything. Very small clean apartment, but it has everything you need. Not really very suitable for small children, we managed for 2 days, but probably would have been difficult for any longer. The bed clothes were quite uncomfortable, and the neighbours upstairs were very noisy in the middle of the night, but I think that was because it was Easter weekend! Giusy's husband met us on the outskirts of the town and drove in with us to show us where to park. He doesn't speak English so he had his daughter on the phone translating, and they were lovely. It was all very straightforward and easy. Couldn't get a better location for Cefalu. Thank you!

Response from Giusy:
Mi dispiace che il nostro vicino abbia potuto dare qualche fastidio per il rumore, ma presumo sia stato perché sono state giornate di festa e comunque cercheremo di sensibilizzare per un comportamento più consono. quello che non capisco e vorrei meglio capire cosa vuol dire la biancheria da letto era "scomoda" così da poter correggere l' inconveniente per i futuri nostri ospiti. Grazie.

Very good location. Guisy and her husband were wonderful. They met us, got our car parked and settled us in. Plenty of room for three people.

An authentic Sicillian town house in the heart of the town, 2 mins from Duomo, bigger than it looks in the pictures. It will suit people, who like to live the local life...with the noises from the streets around...the fish selling man and the fruttavendolo will wake you uo every morning. It is very comfortabke and the kitchen us great to cook in, also the fridge is a decent size. And you can hear the piano player from the nearby piazza di Duomo. You are right in the muddle of the action...also close to the free parking in the harbour. The bedding and towels are high quality. Massive shower space. The hosts are helpful and you can arrange a lift with rhem from the airoprt, even late at night. I would choose this place again!

We had a wonderful stay at Giusy and Emanuele's house in Cefalu. Its such beautiful place and right in the centre of the town with just a few minute walk to the Duomo and to the beach. Our hosts were wonderful and even left us a bottle of champagne to say congratulations as we were on our honeymoon! (as well as pasta and tomato sauce and tea etc.) Lovely place and lovely hosts

We had a lovely stay at giusy and emanuels home. They were both perfect hosts and their home was situated perfectly in Cefalu with everything within walking distance. Hopefully one day we will get back to this beautiful town and we would definitely stay at giusy's and emanuels.

We stayed for a week at Giusy's lovely apartment and could not have been happier with our choice! Her husband picked us up from Palermo airport and drove us to Cefalú for a reasonable price and passed on some local knowledge too. It's a beautiful building with a well equipped kitchen. Shower is downstairs but there is also a toilet and sink upstairs and a washing machine which came in handy. Also a hairdryer. The apartment is in a truly fantastic location - a minute from the cathedral and the main square and less than five minutes from the beach. There are so many restaurants, bars and cafés to choose from nearby. We ate, drank and relaxed very well on this lovely holiday. Giusy and her husband were very friendly and helpful and told us everything we needed to know. Highly recommend this apartment. And walking La Rocca is well worth it for incredible views of Cefalú and beyond!

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!!
