My husband and I, together with other family members, including a child, had the pleasure to stay recently (September 2015) for one week at the beautiful and well-located Casa Mare Cielo in Cefalù.
Based on previous reviews of the place, we had very high expectations. Nevertheless, our experience there managed to go beyond our expectations.
We all were touched by the warm-heartedly welcome and by the kind and friendly attention provided by the owners, Marianna and Francesco (they sincerely want you to feel at home and to be helpful in any way they can). Also, we were very impressed by the beautiful, charming, cozy stone house and, of course, by the magnificent view of the sea, beaches and coastal mountains that we had the privilege to enjoy there, both during the day as well as at night, particularly under a spectacular fool moon.
We had very delightful meals in the porch and playful family moments in the swimming pool, which is pretty safe for children as it is not too deep.
We enjoyed beach time at Kalura Beach as well as at the Cefalù town beach. Cultural and sightseeing visits to historic Cefalù and Castelbuono were also a must.
We would like to go back there again and strongly recommend Casa Mare Cielo for those who want to feel close to paradise. Thank you Marianna and Francesco.
