Studio For 2 In The Countryside With Breath Taking View On Cefalù And The Sea.



Updated: 07-Oct-2016
Tiny Studio In Residence With Pool - 3 Km From Cefalù -Overlooking The Sea.

Il Jolly in Villa L'Arca is one of the 8 self-catering apartments, just 3 km from the town centre and the beach. This is our smallest apartment with a tiny terrace, however you can use the roof terrace for sunbathing. And the price is according to the size.

In the middle of the residence is a pool with next to it a coffee corner where you can enjoy a free espresso. A car is a must because the road is rather steep.

A lovely property situated high above Cefalu with stunning views over the town and the sea.

  • 4 of 5

Il Jolly was small but more than adequate for a couple. Facilities offered were very good, the washing machine and proper oven/hob were especially useful. All crockery, cutlery and linen/towels were provided - on the whole all of this was excellent, and exactly as described by the owner.

One small drawback was that the terrace was small and cramped and not especially private, but we did have use of the sun terrace and the pool area. The excellent free coffee was a real bonus!

Another point to note is the very steep drive up to the property from the town - a car really is essential when staying at this property. The road was not easy to find first time round but the owner very kindly came down and showed us the way.

On the whole, a very enjoyable stay (mid-August 2016) and Il Jolly is recommended for couples. There are other apartments available which would be suitable for families.

The owner is very friendly and helpful and did a lot to make our stay enjoyable. Thank you Marjolein!

From the Owner

Tommaso bought this piece of land because of its fantastic position in the country and near the town and beach of Cefalù. Gradually we built the apartments against the mountainside and leaving nature as much as possible as it was. So we are surrounded by olive-groves and fruittrees, lovely flowers and bougainvillaes.

From the Owner

The position of the property is unique with amazing views, and all the apartments have their own terrace with sun and shade and furnished for the outdoor live. The pool is only small but nice and refreshing and next to it you can enjoy a lovely espresso because the machine is ready for use. It is surrounded by olive groves and fruit trees, jasmin and bougainvilla and nice flowers. A fresh water source is at 200 meters.
