The Entire villa in excusive use , and the use of Swimming Pools and Private beaches
Half way between Messina and Palermo, the north-western coast of Sicily, boasts a wonderful variety of sceneries. In the space of just a few kilometres, the splendid beaches of the Tyrrhenian disappear into the green hills of the Nebrodi and the Madonie . CEFALU’ , an hour from Palermo, is one of Sicily's most important tourist destinations. This ancient town, after a series of foreign dominations, reached its greatest splendour under the Normans and the magnificent Norman cathedral is the symbol of the town. Framed between the sea and an imposing rock, the medieval centre with its narrow roads, churches and splendid buildings, the famous Osterio Magno, the medieval wash house and the Mandralisca museum, is alive with cafes, restaurants and shops. A rather tough climb to the top of the rock is well worth while as the path leads up, past the Temple of Diana, to breathtaking views over the town and the sea. Further to the east, the characteristic village of S. Stefano di Camastra is famous for its ancient tradition of ceramic making and its ceramic museum in Palazzo Sergio. Hikers and nature lovers can enjoy the tracks and trails in the Nebrodi and Madonie mountain park. A trip to nearby Palermo and Monreale with their wonderful Arab-Norman architecture will complete a most fascinating holiday.

Review for the villa / property Sicily Pool Garden in Cefalu:
This a large and comfortable Villa located 15 minutes drive from the centre of Cefalu, it is 5 minutes walk to an adequate beach, better beaches are located east-wards between 45-80 minutes drive. The villa is well-equippet for holiday, with very pleasant outdoor space and garden. The villa is located in a private and secure domain with a community pool.
We stayed in the villa in August, when the weather in sicily is very hot, this villa has only one air-conditioning unit in the top bedroom, and two electrical up-right fans, which unfortunately are not quite sufficient in cooling the large space of the house. There are shutters on most doors & windows of the house, and those must be kept shut to keep the house from over-heating.
Communication, or lack of it is the greatest down-side of this Holiday Villa. It is important to note the Marco Brunelli is NOT located in Cefalu or in Sicily and although he was trying to be helpful (via sms messages & emails), he is unfamiliar with the area or locality of Cefalu, or with the house it self. When problems or issues arise, he referred us to the owner of the house for assistance. The owner of the house seems to be a nice man, but with very limited English or French and communication with him was difficult. Because of this it took us several days to work things out ourselves (where and what hours is supermarket, bakery open, where are the good beaches, where nice restaurants are, and how to keep the house cool etc.). We hope the experience of future guest to the house can be improved.
There is no Wifi or Cable internet available in the house, the owner brought a USB-key modem for use with our lap-top computer, but despite repeated attempts and a visit to the mobile communication provider shop in Palermo, we had no internet access in the house, and were relying on using Wifi in cafes in Cefalu, which of course made it even more difficult to find out current local information (eg. taxi).
Overall we would recommend this Villa for holiday, but at the same time we feel several things need to be improved.
