Beautiful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

The views from the large terraces surrounding this villa are stunning - even better than the photos!

We spent 6 weeks here in June/July and had a wonderful holiday. We never tired of visiting historic Cefalu, and the view from La Rocca is well worth the climb. The local beaches are perfect for relaxing and swimming, and there is a great choice of restaurants serving local foods, especially fish!

We had lots of time to explore the Madonie area and sample 'mountain' foods, Palermo and its surrounds, nearby villages such as San Ambrogio, the Aoelian Islands and the many ceramic shops!

It's possible to visit Agrigento, Mt Etna and Erice as long day trips, but the driving can be exhausting especially with the numerous detours we encountered.

After a day sightseeing, or just relaxing at the beach, it was always a delight to return to this peaceful villa and its magnificent ever changing views which will remain with us forever.

Thank you Carolina for being so helpful when we were arranging our visit, and for your warm welcome and contact throughout our stay. And a very special thank you for the air conditioner!! If you do make that trip to New Zealand we'd love to return your hospitality.

Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was well resourced for all our needs. We had good communication from Carolina both prior and during our stay which allowed us to gain answers promptly to our questions to make our stay run smoothly. She remained in contact throughout our stay to help advise and support any queries we had or resolve any issues. E.g how to light the gas stove? The photos don't do aspects of the villa justice. Waking up to the views we had everyday made the stay extra special ( ensure you see both sunrise and sunset as both can be spectacular ). Loved the local restaurants in Cefalu and the old town is beautiful to move through at all times of day/night. We were lucky enough to be attending a wedding at the cathedral locally which added something special to our holiday. We also travelled to many of the main tourist sites on offer in Sicily from the villa including valley of the Temples: Agrigento and Taorimina, Enna and others. Food wine all excellent and using the outdoor kitchen and facilities we enjoyed eating in too! We are a family with 3 boys who also didn't tire of the villa! The boys loved jumping the waves on the beach as their highlight, as well as the best pizza's ever! Hope to return.

Villa Myrtilene is the most amazing holiday house we have ever rented. Its position is breathtaking with terraces overlooking the bay and the accommodation is perfect for 2 couples with plenty of space. The owner,Carolina, could not have been more helpful.

Our slight issues would be lack of wifi and easy access to the sea - it was a bit difficult to get to a beach without using the car.

Altogether though we loved it !

Room with a View

  • 5 of 5

Carolina's home is a wonderful spot to stay when visiting Cefalu, having the most gorgeous, dreamlike view across the bay. It is hardly a 5 min drive out of the centre, so a very quiet and relaxing location, with lovely outdoor spaces. She was most helpful in meeting and escorting us from the edge of town, and full of great recommendations for restaurants and beaches. There are many stairs, so certainly a worry for small children and those with reduced mobility. She has had guests without transport staying, but with two lazy and grumpy teenagers, we would not have liked to have been without our own wheels. The house is so comfortable and well equipped, apart from a kettle for those of us with English roots! The 2 verandahs are perfect for lazy afternoons of reading - if you can take your eyes off the view! Cefalu is a fascinating place and should definitely be on any visitor's Sicilian itinerary. Climb La Rocca that looms huge over the town - a hard slog but so worth the views and sense of history! Thank you, Carolina, our only regret was having too little time to enjoy the house whilst wanting to explore all the area has to offer.

Activity and Interests


The sea is approx. 200 m away as the crow flies and near the house there are different beaches where you can go in few minutes by car.

Lungomare: is the main sandy beach in Cefalù. Here you will find many different lidos that offer sun beds and umbrellas.

Caldura: is located near Kalura Hotel. This is a very nice and quiet beach but you can't rent sun chairs and umbrellas.

S. Ambrogio: here the beach is very large. You will find lidos and you can also lie down for free.


Cefalù is just 70 km from Palermo and 105 km from Palermo airport.

Is easily reached by car: take the A19 tollway towards Messina/Catania to the Cefalù exit.


Cefalù is just 1,5 km from the house and is reachable also by foot in few minutes.

Here you will find equipped beach, shops, restaurants.

During the summer from the harbour hydrofoils run to and from Aeolian Islands (Isole Eolie), a group of attractive islands in the Tyrrhenian Sea about 25-50km north of Sicily.

Thanks to its good location you can go easily everywhere from Cefalù.
