Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Dario's apartment in Cefalu was absolutely perfect. It's even bigger than it looks in the photos and the location couldn't have been better - right in the picturesque old town, just a couple of minutes' walk to the beach and surrounded by loads of great bars and restaurants. Also, Dario couldn't have been more accommodating as a host. Really hope to make it back here soon, thanks again!



I stayed at Dario's place for 3 nights and enjoyed every single bite of it. The apartment, located right in the main street of Cefalu (5mns from the beach top) has been renovated with a lot of taste. With 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms (plus sofa bed) it can easily accomodate 4/6 people and is a perfect headquarter for exploring Cefalu and the north cost of Sicily. Dario has been a very nice and helpful host and we will definitely return to his place when we go back to Cefalu.



Picturesque and beautiful apartment in the heart of Cefalú historic center. We had a wonderful week saying in this apartment. Spacious ceiling height and large rooms. Kitchen with all facilities. Nice balcony that connects the two bedrooms. I strongly recommend this apartment to other guests.

Fabulous apartment at the centre of everything!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to stay in this beautiful apartment for three weeks - Dario is the perfect host. He arranged transfers for us, helped us source a taxi when we needed one and, because ours was an extended stay, arranged additional cleaning. A friendly and lovely person to deal with as well as extremely responsive.

The apartment itself is beautiful - and even bigger than it looks. There were three of us and there was plenty of space for all of us to find a quiet spot when we wanted to! It was cleaned to an immaculate standard and very comfortable. The boys were delighted to find the TV was showing all of the Euro 2016 games! The laundry room was a great space to store sandy equipment after long days at the beach, the kitchen large and really well equipped. There's a second dining space which also has the large fridge/freezer so plenty of room for delicious drinks and food! It's well decorated, nicely furnished and felt like a home from home.

The building is very historic and right in the heart of the historical centre, close to every shop, restaurant or facility you could need (including the amazing RossoRubino bar and great cake shops...!) It's also less than five minutes to the beach, a stroll to the base of La Rocca and about 15 minutes to the old port.

For those looking for a quiet location, it is busy on the street outside the balcony (not New York busy, but certainly bustling) but we felt we were in the heart of things, hearing people go about their daily lives in this beautiful city.

We spent our days exploring, snorkelling, climbing La Rocca and enjoying the beautiful beach. This is a great apartment in a wonderful location.

Georgeous stay in a gorgeous place

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous place to stay in to get a real taste of the stunning Cefalu. Located right in the centre of all the action, we felt like locals as soon as we arrived. Dario is charming and always happy and cannot do enough to make your stay memorable. Cefalu felt victim three days before our stay to some arsonists that set fire to the Cefalu countryside, and with the damage Dario lost some of his own property, however you wouldn't know it, as he was as lovely as ever.

The apartment is huge and suited our family of four perfectly. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms and a full kitchen and another dining room. Everything we needed was there, and only a short walk down to the beach was welcomed on hot days. The Osterio Magno apratment was well-priced for such a comfortable stay, and we felt in luxury. I would encourage anyone to stay here, you definitely won't be dissappointed.

The best location!

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, well equipped apartment in the heart of Cefalu. A short stroll to the beach but in the heart of the town so atmospheric (if a little noisy but that's the Italian way - you soon adjust to this!) Apartment has everything for a relaxing holiday and the spacious kitchen and eating area

are great if you like to cook - we bought local fish and seafood - helpful owner who recommended a fantastic local restaurant for a birthday celebration and met us to help find the apartment on a very busy Sunday afternoon - if you are out of season and plan to just relax without any day trips then you may like us find the car parked up for your stay - at least 10-15 minute walk as centre has no free parking apart from local residents. in May most of the coastal towns were pretty much shut - we had a trip up the coast though and found a local restaurant for a good fish lunch. Overall we loved the apartment and had a relaxing week - Dario was a very helpful host and kept in touch.

Perfect Location in Cefalu'

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful and comfortable apartment on the main pedestrian walking street in Cefalu' The large well equipped kitchen makes entertaining and preparing meals fun for all. I loved the fact that I could stand on my balcony and be serenaded by beautiful guitar music in the evenings and watch the processions for the holidays pass just below. The town movie theater is just across the street, and a great small grocer is two doors away for convenience. The furnishings are not only beautiful but extremely comfortable as well. The Duomo is just steps away as well as gelato and many restaurants to chose from. Just a short stroll down the cobbled street to one of the best beaches in Sicily. This was my second stay and I plan on returning every year. I highly recommend this apartment. The owner is a wonderful man and will accommodate any of your needs if possible.

Wonderful apartment, charming, rich of character

  • 5 of 5

Dario is a fabulous host. We called him as we were coming in to Cefalu for directions as we agreed to. He said to look for him at a certain gas station and he was there as promised. We followed him on his motorcycle and he found us free parking 5 minutes walk from the apartment that is very central, on Corso Ruggero, in the main old street in the ancient part of town. Nice balcony right over the Corso. Great for people watching. He had written instructions for the Internet, suggestions for restaurants and a map of the city. He has a warm and vibrant personality. He responded to all our questions very quickly. The apartment itself was terrific, spotless and tastefully decorated. It is very large and could quite easily accommodate at least 6 adults. It had everything you could need for your visit, large 2 bedroom, 2 bath with a big shower. Great kitchen is well equipped. 2 dining areas. Eclectic and artsy furnishings. Dario showed us all around the apt and even the separate private laundry room across the hall. Good WiFi. 50 feet from an alimentari. 200 feet from the duomo. Heart of everything. 3 minute walk to the start of the trail up La Rocca. The location is right in the center of the shopping district and within a short walk to the beach which was very clean. We were there at the end of the season but I imagine the beach would be quite lively during the busy tourist season. We enjoyed the quiet. We had a car but chose to use the train for a trip to Palermo. The station is a short walk and the trip is only about 50 minutes; very convenient. We would highly recommend this apartment and this host.

Wonderful place, wonderful holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous place, right in the centre of town, really nicely renovated, spotless and everything in great condition. Dario is a brilliant host, friendly and available any time we needed anything. Cefalu is a paradise, easily accessible from Palermo, though it was difficult to drag us away from that beach and the cobbled-stone streets of Cefalu. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Highly recommended!
