“Lovely apartment”
Reviewed 6 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Myself and my partner had a lovely stay here in Calagrande Appartments. We did however pay to stay in the La Medusa Appartment which cost a bit more than Il Riccio but I think the Appartments are mostly the same. The complex itself is nice and quiet. It is suitable for younger couples I think as it is a bit out from Cefalu town. A 20 minute walk to the town, which is a nice walk along the sea front. The beach is only a 5 minute walk away and is really lovely but there is a cobbled hill to climb back up, for us this was no bother but for other people they might not like that...especially in the hot sun, and at night this lane way hill is not lit up so difficult to see!

The Appartments were lovely and clean. They are well attended too. Nathalie greeted us on arrival she is very helpful and friendly. The gardens were kept clean. Free washing machine and bikes...although it took us some time to figure out what is best setting to use the washing machine! A kettle would be very useful in the Appartments...we missed that. They have air conditioning which was great, Sky tv...we didn't use, hot water and decent shower bathroom facilities, 4 gas hob and electric oven, gas bbq outside, table and chairs, large fridge/freezer.

The pool was ok, not used very often, but you can't beat the sea in Cefalu. Free bikes and bike locks great. Free car parking....a car is definitely needed if staying for more than a week...supermarket a good walk away if going to get your supplies. We also drove around the coast aswell and took to the mountains...it was lovely.

Suggest flying into Palermo this is the nearer airport...approx 1hr15 mins drive away.

Cefalu itself is a lovely town and we really enjoyed our stay. It is hard to sunbathe at the facility though...no where to lie down properly...they had seat loungers which were just ok. Most people tended to stay here for few days only....I think they were travelling other parts of the island...in which case these Appartments are perfect. We stayed 2 weeks and came back very relaxed. Hotel bakery near by also does nice cakes, lunch, cheap drinks.

Also to mention the train goes by about 2-3 times per hour but they weren't a problem and none late at night. There is free wifi. The Appartments are kitted out from idea...very modern, and comfortable.

I would go back to these Appartments and I would recommend to friends. Very well looked after facility and very safe place to enjoy our holiday.

Thank you Marjolein, Nathalie and Herman.
