About the Owner

I have been living in the UK since 1996 and almost every year we spend our summer holidays in Cefalu. We rent the house in order to cover the mortgage expenses. Longer rents are preferred to short term rent and discount will be applied. This house is perfect for families who want to spent weeks discovering the charm of the sea around Cefalu.

A touch of Sicily

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this lovely villa at the end of August 2016 for a week. 3 adults and two children, plenty of space, the pictures does not capture the true beauty of the area. The location of the villa is easily accessible and not to far from the hustle and bustle of main Cefalu. The villa was comfortable and well equipped, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay from the private beach to the public beach (which was never over crowded). We enjoyed lazing around the garden and taking in the flora the villa made for a great base to see the sights of Cefalu. We were supplied with maps which proved in valuable when we drove to Palermo to take in the sights and museums as well as the drive to Mount Etna. The villa is a home away from home, and complimented the beauty of Sicily. Sea views were amazing and we felt very safe walking around the complex people were very friendly and warm. The two pool areas were clean and well equipped. All in all a great holiday was had by all.

We had a fantastic two weeks holiday here and arrived whilst the ice cream festival was on which was a particular highlight!

Cefalu is a lovely town with many superb restaurants all worthy of recommendations good quality food and great service.

From the Owner

I fell in love straight away with the coast and the water in front of the house. It is called "settefrati". The stacks sticking up out of the water are part of a legend about a beatiful women who was abducted here. The seven stacks are said to be her seven brothers, who tried to rescue her and were turned into stone.
