That was a wonderful two-week vacation we, three middle –age couples, spent on the villa.
It is important that in a few minutes you can reach an exit to Palermo motorway, so this point is very convenient for exploring Sicily by car. This is the second time we are on Sicily, and we were travelling mostly over the northern west areas of the island. Also, on your way back to Palermo airport there are many petrol stations, so it is not a problem to return your car with the full tank to the car rent office, as they usually require.
Cefalu (very close and easy accessible by car) is perfect for going out each time of the day. There are nice tourist shops and excellent beach (available for free as well), in the evening you can visit one of the numerous restaurants and try, for example, a grilled swordfish or any other delicious Sicilian food. Sure, you need to visit the famous cathedral to see the old mosaic, and you can take a challenge to climb the mountain to see the castle ruins and so on. You can always found a parking place on Cefalu marina for 1 euro per hour. If you are lucky, you may have a chance to park for free.
The nearest food store is in 5 minutes drive towards the Cefalu, you can buy everything you need there. Vegetables are also available in small market point along the road.
The residence private beach looks attractive, however it is rocky, entering the water is bit tricky. The nearest Mazzaforno beach (5 mins walking from the residence, actually the same distance as to the private beach) has a perfect sandy section. Even on weekends is was not crowded at all. The water is crystal, the sea is excellent, and the rocks make the sea view absolutely amazing.
This is a family villa, spacious and carefully decorated. The kitchen is equipped with all necessary everyday items. There is also a space outdoors close to the living-room, under a canopy that is perfect for eating. The garden is large and beautiful, and there is a gazebo where you can have a rest.
Andrea, the owner was always available by telephone and email, and immediately solved the small utility problems. We very much appreciated the owner’s hospitality.
Our notes are the upper bedroom is actually an entresol, a balcony over the living-room. However, there is the high wall, so the bedroom cannot be observed. The house conditioner is located in this upper bedroom so the living room is cooled as well. As for the lower-level bedrooms, installing an additional conditioner there would be great, when the temperature is 30 C and higher the fan will not completely protect you ….
We enjoyed our staying on the villa and recommend this place for families and companies up to 6 persons. The car is essential.
