Beautiful home away from home with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Casa donna Maria. The home is perfect. It has everything you need for a perfect and relaxing stay in Cefalù, especially if you're looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the town and want to take in the beauty of the area.

Maria is a wonderful host. She was very helpful in providing anything that we needed.

The home is very comfortable and very private. Highly recommend!

Really great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house over the summer and cannot recommend it enough! The view from the house is amazing and the amenities are superb (full functional kitchen with stove and dishwasher, to the washer in the bathroom for beach clothes). The house is on a hill overlooking the Tyrrhenian sea and the view every morning is breathtaking. The guest house is separate from the main house (full privacy) in a quiet location, just far enough from the hustle and bustle of Cefalu. Its a perfect house for retrieving after a day out in Cefalu (climbing La Rocca and going to the beach). The host, Maria, was super friendly and very helpful in recommending restaurants / point of interest in Cefalu.

Easy as 1-2-3, ONE simply stunning apartment, TWO kind, friendly & generous hosts, 3 beautiful dogs

  • 5 of 5

Casa Donna Maria was the perfect apartment for the final week of our first visit to Sicily. From the moment we arrived our hosts made us feel very welcome and did everything they could to ensure we had a wonderful holiday.

The villa is situated high in the hills above Cefalu with spectacular views out to the sea. The sunsets were truly amazing and added to the tranquility of the evenings. You can watch the sun go down with a glass of wine in your hand either from the balcony area immediately outside the apartment or from the terrace directly above. It is an ideal place for romance but equally perfect to sit, play scrabble or just to relax and recharge.

Maria and Antonio have three beautiful dogs who became firm friends of ours and added to the warmth and kindness of their hospitality.

We thoroughly recommend this stunning apartment for any holiday and definitely hope to return.

Grazie mille,

Lucy and Giles x

Amazing property, great view and hosts

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to find the words to express just how amazing everything about this property is. There is the most amazing sea view across the valley. You can sit at the kitchen table, or on the balcony at the back of the property and just watch the sun moving, until it eventually goes down in a blaze of colour. The photos do not do justice to the spectacular reality.

We had two wonderful two weeks in this idyllic property. The property itself has everything needed for a comfortable self catering holiday: a large comfortable bed, effective air-conditioning, dishwasher, large fridge freezer and good hob/oven. It was all very clean and there were thoughtful touches, such as a hairdryer and some toiletries!

Now for the really good bit ... the owners Maria and Antonio did everything possible to make us feel welcome: meeting us at the main road and guiding us to the property, feeding us on our arrival. They were very kind and helpful, inviting us to join them with their family and friends as they celebrated the Cefalù festival with a wonderful seafood meal. Maria gave us food on several occasions, yet she was never obtrusive. We felt more like friends staying, yet with complete privacy if we wanted. The two dogs are lovely, very friendly and always joined us for breakfast!

Cefalù is a great place to spend a holiday - you can use the beach passes Maria supplies, or just wander around enjoying the historical old town and the shops (and the restaurants!). We walked up the Rock - take water - it is quite a climb, but worth it for the views and a temple which is 2500 years old! We also visited Monreale, Stromboli and Castelbuono, so there is something for everyone to do and discover.

We have rented many self catering properties, but this is certainly one of the most comfortable, well equipped, and most welcoming we have stayed in.

A beautiful oasis nestled in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

We knew we were in a special place when Maria and Antonio, our hosts, helped us settle in with a bottle of wine and a box of freshly prepared, send-you-straight-to-heaven cannolis. And itt just got better from there. They are so warm and welcoming, we knew we had made friends for life. Our stay in this private getaway was what every traveler dreams of: private but only seconds away from our helpful hosts, clean and comfortable, beautiful surroundings, fresh fruits and vegetables waiting to be picked, a brand new washing machine, wine, olive oil, cooking lessons. It wasn't a vacation, but more of a dream come true. This is why people travel--to get in touch with the world and the lovely people who inhabit it. We could have stayed there with Maria, Antonio and their two adorable pups, Masaniello and Reginella forever. Unfortunately, we had to return home for Christmas. But, one thing is for sure, we'll be back next year! If you can only stay in one place in Cefalu, do yourself a favor and stay in this little slice of paradise.

Sicily has always been the land of the sun, the place where the sea, the mild climate, and the call of history are the key hospitality.

Located 6 km from the town of Cefalu ', we offer a wide and spectacular view of the coastline of Cefalù and the surrounding hills.

Placed in the hills at 320 mt s. L.M. and 10 minutes from the beach cefaludese, we are immersed in a lussoreggiante Mediterranean vegetation of pine, olive and ash trees.

The wide panoramic view spans a valley which blends the smells of the sea and the scents from the surrounding forests.

There is no external noise that could disturb the rest of the day I do at night.

There offiamo something wonderful: the sea, nature, tranquility, a magnificent view, comfort.

We have all the ingredients to make your stay truly unforgettable experience.
