la mia città è Palermo,amo l'arte.
When you decide to rent a listing, you base your decision on many factors, one being the photos of the listing. Apparently, our host has two properties that he rents. I saw the photos of one of the rentals and opted to rent it for a couple of days in Cefalu. I was sent the address of the pictured rental. But on the day we were to use the apartment our host informed us we would be in the apartment by the Duomo. Not having ever visited Cefalu before, I didn't realize how far our car would be parked from the rental. That entailed 4 people dragging their luggage and dodging motorcycles, cars and tourists almost a mile through the hilly streets of Cefalu. We met the host's rep to pick up the key and hoisted our luggage up many steps.
That being said, the rental was in a nice location near the center of all. It was comfortable enough. The downstairs shower took hours to drain. I didn't like that we were not informed before we rented that the apartment pictured was not the one we would be in.
We had a good time in Cefalu but have some remarks about the apartment. First of all we also received the key of a woman who probably works for Giuseppe. Not a problem but she explained everything in Italian (which I don't speak) so that wasn't a easy start. The furniture etc of the house is ok but the hot water in the shower downstairs did not work and the ventilation is quite poorly. Especially downstairs where there is the kitchen/living space in there is a toilet with no window and basically there was a urine smell, although we didn't use this toilet ourselves. The view of the duomo and the sea is there but mainly to be seen from the topfloor to the left and right where there is a indoor balcony. We rented a more than one story apartment so we could put our child to bed on another floor, this apartment was quite noisy so we wouldn't recommend it for a vacation with really young children. All in all it was ok but we expected a bit more.
My son julian and his friend Louise stayed at Giuseppes house in Cefalu, these are his words.
Cefalu is stunning.
Sadly we didn't get to meet Giuseppe, but he was always available by phone or email to answer any questions we might have. He was very helpful and a very warm character, in a very hospitable town.
Giuseppes house is tucked on the edge of town with steps down to the beach with crystal blue waters in which to bathe.
Very good restaurants are located within 5 minutes walk.
The house is charming and very clean, and perfect for a couple or family stay. Towels are provided and there is a washing machine.
A wonderful place to stay and very accommodating, I look forward to visiting and staying there again.
Thank you Giuseppe.

Superbe appartement, idéalement situé, accueil parfait. Je recommande.
House is cosy and beautiful and have amazing location. We felt really confortable like home:) For sure highly reccomended place to discover Cefalu.
superbe logement, très agréable, dans une rue très charmante et jolie. on prenait le petit déjeuner sur la terrasse avec vue sur la mer.
C'est le fils de Giuseppe qui nous a (très bien) accueillit, il parle très bien anglais et est très sympathique. et possibilité de se garer dans la rue où il y a toujours de la place.
Logement très agréable avec une belle terrasse donnant sur la mer. L'accueil est sympathique, le village charmant avec une plage à proximité et un restaurant délicieux. Bref, tout est là pour un super séjour !!
Very vice flat, conveniently located within the town centre. Could have used some a/c.
Giuseppe ed i suoi famigliari sono stati dei buoni host! Nonostante un problema di disponibilità della casa ci hanno subito prorposto una soluzione alternativa e ci sono venuti in contro anche economicamente per evitarci grossi disagi.
Inoltre sono stati molto disponibili durante il soggiorno, facilmente rintracciabili sia telefonicamente che personalmente.
Giuseppe was a lovely host, even though we never met him. Instead we met his son and son's friend who took care of us. The apartment is perfect for a couple who wants to spend some days in the lovely small charming town, Sant'Ambrogio. The view from the balcony is amazing. The place is exactly as it seems on the pictures - fantastic. We cooked our own meals in the little kitchen, even tough we were tempted by eating at Mimmo's Osteria in the town. The kitchen are not perfect for making the great dinners, but ok for breakfast and lunch. We missed some minor kitchen tools as a larger dulcimer, spoons, different knifes and more space. If you want to eat out in the city every night, the apartment is perfect!
Overall a fantastic apartment for cheap money. No problems with Giuseppe - he seems to solve any problem you will meet.
Grandissimi e gentilissimi ragazzi!!!
gli ospiti perfetti che tutti vorrebbero!
Grazie ancora... è stato un vero piacere :)
