We had a really great experience here. Giulia was super helpful and even picked us up from the train station, which was awesome because the villa is quite a hike up from the station. The view from the balcony is spectacular and the apartment was spotlessly clean. The shower was really good too. The wifi was excellent. We didn't mind being a bit out of Cefalu because it came with a great view. I would note that while the flagship image of the property is the swimming pool, it was covered when we went because it was low season, which maybe meant the view was a little different from the one pictured - but nevertheless definitely recommend this place.
We enjoyed our time at Villa Santa Barbara, which was our first holiday with our 6 month old baby. We did not meet Angelo during our stay; instead we were in contact with Guilia, who was helpful and prompt whenever we needed to make contact with her.
Summary of our thoughts:
*Functional, clean and spacious apartment.
*Very nice, clean and well maintained pool area with lovely sea views
*Large and very well maintained ground floor communal area with table tennis table
*Friendly and helpful on-site staff
*Within walking distance of Cefalu town centre, though the walk back up the hill may be considered a little arduous for some (especially with a buggy).
*Supermarket within a 5 minute walk
*Advertises as 2 bedrooms, but is actually only one bedroom with a sofa bed in the lounge. This was disappointing to us as we have a baby who had to sleep either with us in the bedroom or in the lounge, neither of which were ideal. In fairness, while it does advertise as a 2-bed, there is a floorplan in the image gallery that shows clearly there is only one bedroom.
* Electrics were down for an entire day. We were told this was due to a a problem in the area. Wi-fi was also a little unreliable. However, Giulia was helpful regarding both these problems offering regular updates.
*The communal elevator works by sensor and is absurdly sensitive, often stopping between floors if one of your limbs encroaches into a part that the sensor doesn't like. Even without a baby this would be highly frustrating.
The villa Santa Barbara was a real heaven... We were very impressed by the outstanding quality of the accommodation and facilities like the Swimming pool.
We will definitely visit Angelo in a very near future.
Thank you to make our stay in Cefalú so memorable
Le logement était parfaitement placé.
Un peu en dehors du centre ville pour le calme, mais à quelque minute en voiture du centre.
Une vue à couper le souffle, résidence très bien entretenue avec superbe piscine. Nous avons vu notre hôte une fois qui s'est assuré que tout se passait bien et c'était le cas. Le logement était bien adapté à notre composition familiale. Très bon séjour.
We were made to feel very welcome on arrival by Marianna, first impressions were very good and realistic. The apartment was very clean modern and had everything we needed for a week. It was nice to meet Angelo the next day. We really enjoyed the pool and thought the view from our balcony was amazing. The cleaning staff very polite and friendly and worked hard to keep the gardens beautiful and the communal areas very clean. We really liked Cefalu it has good restaurants, lovely old very italian style buildings, interesting shopping and a stunning beach front. I have already recommended Cefalu and Angelo's apartments to my neighbours back in the UK. We may be back again soon.
Best wishes to all at Villa Santa Barbara, thank you for a lovely holiday
A great place for holidays.
Wonderful pool with stunning view, well equipped kitchen and helpful hosts!
I highly recommend this place!
Angelo's villa was an absolutely perfect place for us to stay in Cefalu. The apartment itself was great - simple but with everything you might need for your holiday. We were very comfortable and had a great sea view from the balcony. The pool was beautiful, in a peaceful location and very well designed! The villas are situated about 20mins walk from Cefalu centre and 25mins from the beach - we had no car during our stay and got around fine. All in all, I would totally recommend this place, and hope to come back again myself at some point in the future.
Dear Eve really thank you for your appreciation . I hope to meet you again in Villa santa Barbara. regards Angelo
This vacation that we spent in Angelo's villa was very good. Villa is good and Angelo is always there for any questions. I would love to come again. It was good.
Cefalu was a great experience and Angelos apartment was really nice. Good location and comfortable walkingdistance to the center. We would definitely recommend others to stay at the same location.
Nice and clean apt with beautiful view from the balcony and pool!
We are a family of four with two
Children age 8 and 12.
It is easy to walk down to the village and the old town. A bit more a challenge to go back, up the hill! A taxi cost about 10 euro.
The old town is very charming. Dont miss a cappuccino and an icecream at "Santa Lucia"!
Angelo was an excellent host! Answered all our questions very quickly.
We can truly recommend this apt!
Il dott. Leonarda è stato un ospite gentile e rispettoso.
Mi auguro di ospitare Lui e sua figlia nuovamente.
