Luisa was very welcoming, as was her daughter, Salvina. The room was lovely, view amazing. It was a short walk to the old town of Cefalu: antiquities, architecture, fabulous food. We would most certainly visit Luisa (website hidden).
We arrived late and had dinner at a restaurant five minutes walk from Luisa's. The pizza and salad was delicious, the local wine great.
Thanks Cheryl, I will remember your true enthusiasm of our place and town! Come back soon, Luisa
Luisa was an extremely welcoming , friendly and helpful host. The room was very comfortable with a large bathroom, small fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. Best of all was the balcony with a fantastic view over the town to the sea. The neighbourhood is quiet and green with a small supermarket very close by. It is an easy walk down to the old part of town/ cathedral etc but quite a steep walk back up. Cefalu is a great place to visit and Luisa's is a great place to stay.
Thank you Alistar, come back soon!
Very friendly host! Nice room with balcony and nice view, walking-distance to historic center.
Thank you Laura,
looking forward to seeing you again next time!
I could to stay in cozy house.
Good memory in Sicily.
I thank you! I hope you had a good and safe trip back home to Korea!
The room was nice, clean, & well equipped (it had a little kitchen area, including plates, pans, a fridge, etc., as well as & some basic food - you can make your own Espresso!) & the bed was comfortable, while the appartment was located near the city centre yet quiet.
Luisa is a very nice, reliable lady, who told us everything we needed to know (and, I'm sure, she has a lot more information to offer).
Altogether: everything was perfect, really.
Thank you Franz! I am glad you appreciated the upgrade to room Suite :-)
Everything was perfect in Luisa's place! She even gave us a better room than the one we paid for. Luisa and her daughter were very friendly and gave us precious tips to better know Cefalu. The room was all that we expected and with a lovely view of the beach. We strongly recommend Luisa's place if you ever go to Cefalu!
Thank you Luciano! Whenever possible we upgrade our guests to room Suite which is also found on this same website :) I hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday. Take care, Luisa
We had a really nice room with a nice view of the sea! luisa was really friendly and helpful :)
Thank you Melina, looking forward to seeing you again. Take care, Luisa :-)
Luisa made our arrival in Sicily easy and memorable, picking us up (for a fee, of course) at the Palermo airport, answering our questions, and delivering us to our "Roomantic" room without our even having to think. She was delightful and helpful, and provided a great introduction to the hospitality of Sicily. We originally thought we'd stay a few nights in Palermo to kick off our first visit here, but the more we read about it, the more we realized we'd rather be in a smaller town. Cefalu was the perfect choice: there's enough to see and do for 3 days or so (probably more in summertime -- we were here in February), and it's safe and beautiful, with a stunning blue sea on sunny days. The room was perfect: located up a steep hill about a 10 minute walk from the old town of Cefalu, with a stunning view of the sea, just like the photos show. There's a little grocery close by for anything you need. Be sure to try the aged provolone cheese there. And be sure to climb La Rocca -- it's not as bad a hike as some folks make it out to be.
Thank you Gary and Janet! You are a super couple and I already miss our laughs together!
Hope you come back soon, Luisa :-)
Luisa is a very friendly and thoughtful host. She upgraded us to a nice apartment and it has great view of town and the sea. The apartment has everything that we need. It's also walking distance to town. It's a lovely stay!
Thanks Naf, but that wasn't just a nice apartment, that was room Suite, right next to room Deluxe in our B&B :-) ahahah
So sweet of you, come back soon!
We felt already before arriving that Luisa is very friendy host and so it was. She was waiting us with warm welcome. We stayed 1 night at her place, and we even thought maybe it is good idea to stay 1-2 day more in Cefalu, but our next destination was Catania and we moved foward.
Place is very cute and romantic as it's described. In the kitchen is everything what we needed (gas stove, plates, pots, pans, some spices, olive oil, forks, spoons, wine opener etc.).
In the evening we made a risotto and it was delicious.
Bathroom was clean, towels and hair dryer were provided. Wi-Fi worked perfectly. Comfortable big bed. Very cozy place.
And balcony.. what a view :) In the morning when you are sleepy it is good to make some steps to balcony and enjoy the morning.
Near Luisa's place (150m) is supermarket, near that we parked our rented car, to avoid inclines. Not far away is town. Everything is very close. Sea is also very close, not far away to walk. Beach is clean and at that time (November) quite empty. So we enjoyed swimming.
Clean, nice and romantic place. We definitely recommend to stay at Luisa's place.
Thank you a lot for your warm welcome, Luisa! Wish you all the best :)
You are wonderful and I really hope you have the chance to visit us again! Take care, Luisa
