Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Bright and airy apartment in ancient restructured seaside building, equipped of every comfort and furnished with care.

It offers an enchanting view of the ancient little port of Cefalù and its little beach.

It is situated in the historic city center, near the principal squares of the town, in which, in the summer period, it is possible to attend several events and performances.

The balcony on the sea allows to enjoy wonderful sunsets and, in summer warm evenings, to relax thanks to the sea breeze and the sweet sound of the waves breaking on the sand.

Recently (July 2010) the window in the bed room was fixed to reduce noises coming from the street.

Close to the house and in the nearby streets there are a lot of tipical restaurants, pubs, shops and cultural sites. Its position inside the historic city center allows both young and old people to have fun going around on foot. Visitors can be absorbed in the daily life of the ancient seaside village, which is still animated by fish itinerant sellers and by artisans, who meet close to the apartment to hand-weave their fishing-nets. As well, considering that the apartment is 50 meters far from the medieval public wash-house, in the warm afternoons, it is possible to look for refreshment and relax on its inside, even reading a good book. It is possible to park in a guarded area with an agreement fee.

Excellent Location with Beach View

  • 5 of 5

The location of this apartment was fantastic - right in the historic centre and only steps from a sandy beach. We stayed with our kids (ages 2 and 4) and the apartment was well equipped. The owner was helpful and responded quickly to all inquiries. We really enjoyed our time in Cefalu.

One note - parking is difficult - there is no access to this apartment by car at certain times of day (pedestrian only). We managed to find street parking fairly nearby but it was not easy. In high season, I expect it would be quite difficult. This is no reflection on the apartment or owner, it simply is what it is.

  • 5 of 5

"The appartment was perfectly located, right on the beach. It is a good size for a young family. The road can be a bit noisy first thing, but just added to the authenticity of the area. The apartment had everything needed for a comfortable stay, including a washing machine which came in very handy. The only thing to note is that there are very steep steps to the gain entry so not recommended for people who have mobility issues. There is free parking at the end of the road but need to be lucky (which we were several times) to get a space. It was the perfect stay."

"The appartment is very nice with excellent location. The owner is extremely helpful and we had a wonderful stay in beautiful Cefalu. The ony thing that should be noted is that the bedroom in the appartment is located towards the street. This means that street noise can be disturbing sometimes."

  • 5 of 5

"L’appartement est joli et très confortable. Il est situé dans le centre historique de Cefalù et bénéficie d’une belle vue sur le petit quai et la mer. Il est très propre, bien équipé et convient parfaitement à deux adultes. La cuisine et la salle de bain sont petites mais quand même très fonctionnelles. La chambre est grande et confortable. La propriétaire, Irene, est très gentille. Par contre, c’est Sarah, sa cousine, qui nous a accueilli. Son accueil a été correct. Il y a une petite précaution à prendre si vous utilisez la climatisation : il faut vider régulièrement l''eau dans le bidon situé sur le balcon avant. En bref, nous avons aimé l’appartement et nous avons bien apprécié notre séjour à Cefalù. C’est un endroit magnifique. Merci encore à Irene."

Motorway Messina - Palermo. Exit: Cefalù

It 'a lovely pebble beach lapped by the beautiful turquoise sea, clear and transparent, from which emerge very suggestive of brown rocks from which you can also dive. The beach is fringed by green trees and extremities is bordered by jagged high cliffs and picturesque dark. To reach the beach you cross the harbor, follow the signs for the Hotel Kalura - Hotel Coves, coming to a path with stairs, located between the Hotel and the Residence Kalura Coast Houses, which leads to the beach. If you are in your car, you have to follow the signs to the Hotel Kalura. A trip pretty, but to do early in the morning (7.00) is that the Fortress of Diana, can only be accessed on foot from the Roger, you can get on top of the mountain overlooking Cefalù and from there to admire the breathtaking views.All 'Company Autonomous stay and sightseeing you can ask for the brochure that tell the history and beliefs related to the fortress itself. You can also inquire about the "Puppet Theatre" by Mimmo Cuticchios, the oldest and only now, "puppeteer" Sicilian.As far as restaurants, a good restaurant is right near home "Old Navy", in general, however, all of the restaurants in the area have a kitchen and a good standard of service, including the pizzerias / restaurant is one of the prettiest "The port ", are very nice and have a good service," Drunk Rock "has a beautiful terrace overlooking the sea,
