Why Serena Maggiore and Dario Livecchi chose Cefalù

This very old apartment of the last century was the old grandfather's medical study that, over the years, was many times renovated and converted to be more comfortable and functional.

Now it is a nice and charming apartment perfectly located in the center of the old town, just 5 minutes walk from the sea and from all the main places of interest: Piazza Duomo, the Cathedral, the Tourist Office, the Markets, the Port, the Bars, Pubs and Restaurants.

From here you will be immersed in the real life of this amazing village

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.

Lovely apartment in a great little town

  • 5 of 5

We had a really nice week in this lovely apartment. We stayed there with three adults and three children and it was spacious enough for all of us. We stayed during May half term which is a really good time to go - not too hot or crowded. Cefalu is a really good base - atmospheric with little narrow streets to explore, and plenty of nice restaurants to eat in. Great beach for the children. The only thing about the apartment was that it was quite noisy at night, because on one of the main streets in the centre, but then you have to expect that if you are based in the centre of town, and the apartment was ideally located for walking down to the beach or to go out and eat in the evening. It had everything we needed, and was perfect for our stay. We would definitely return (to Sicily, to Cefalu and to the apartment!)

a beautiful apartment in the center of town

  • 5 of 5

My 3 sisters and my Mom arrived in this beautiful apartment with cobblestone steps in the center of town and were greeted by Dario and his welcoming gift of wine. The apartment is spacious, warm, inviting, with a kitchen equipped with every thing you'd need if you wanted to stay in and cook. We all had plenty of space to spread out and relax, super comfortable beds, great bathrooms with good showers. It was also immaculate. Staying here was a highlight of our trip to Cefalu. It was perfect. I plan on returning. Thank you again, Dario for all your help and making us so welcome.

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.
