Modern, interesting flat with great location

  • 4 of 5

This flat was exactly as described, and a pleasant place to stay in Cefalu. The interior was interesting, modern and clean. Giovanni was very helpful and friendly and the flat is in a great location, close to the beach and restaurants.

Cute house near the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Demetrio's place! The location was perfect, in a cute little street just a couple of meters from the little beach of Cefalu. The apartment was perfectly clean and it had everything we needed. It definitely is a place with character where you feel at home right away.

Thank you Demetrio for your kindness and this wonderful stay in Cefalu!

Stunning, perfectly located apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully renovated old property in a picture perfect narrow Sicilian street just a very short walk to the beautiful beach of Cefalu.

The photos show the apartment exactly as it is, what they don't show is the incredible attention to detail and the superb finish that the owner, Demetrio, has put into the renovation, it is superb. The eye for design and the sympathetic revamp reminds me of the Miniloft apartments I stayed in during a visit to Berlin. There is definitely love put into the work here.

The apartment was spotlessly clean and all furniture and equipment were in perfect condition. It is very well equipped with all you will need for a self-catering stay in Cefalu. We cooked a lot in the apartment and the kitchen has all the equipment and utensils you will need - the owners have even provided plastic plates and cups for taking a picnic to the beach. There is also a washing machine which was really convenient for us as we were nearing the end of our 10 day trip to Sicily when we arrived in Cefalu so we got to do our laundry before we came home. There is also lots and lots of storage.

The apartment is very well located in the old town and only a few steps from the beach. There are lovely restaurants located within 20 steps of the house and plenty more on the surrounding streets - you are really spoiled for choice. There is also a very good supermarket (Deco) located about a 15 minute walk away where you can stock up on all your needs for your stay and Demetrio has provided a cool little shopping trolley to make that shopping trip as easy as possible.

The owners were wonderful from the first enquiry until we said goodbye at the airport. Making the reservation was simple and straightforward and Milena has perfect English so nothing lost in translation. Arrangements to collect the keys and pay balances went perfectly to schedule. Milena and Demetrio showed us how everything worked, provided us with information about where to go to do our groceries and tips for where to eat. They also made themselves available by phone if we needed any further information from them during our stay - we took them up on this offer several times and nothing was too much trouble for them. Demetrio even provided us with a transfer to the airport at the end of our stay.

This apartment was definitely a gem and I would highly recommend it, in fact I am encouraging all my family and friends to go to Cefalu and to stay here, it is amazing

Veramente impeccabile e confortevole in tutto

  • 5 of 5

A due passi dal mare, molto fresca e completa nei minimi particolari, il personale è disponibilissimo e cordiale. Nella realtà è molto più bella da ciò che trasmettono le foto , una vera bomboniera.

Perfect Place and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We spend some wonderful days at Demetrios house and felt home from the first second. Demetrio was always very kind and helpful. Check-in and check-out were very good organized and without any problems. The house is very well equipped and with a great love to details decorated. It is as nice as on the pictures shown. The location is perfect. You step out of the house and you are at the beach, bars, restaurants. We will come back!
