Surrounded by a large grassy garden shaded by ancient olive trees, there is a nice alfresco dining and seating area where you can enjoy open air living.
Wifi throughout, satellite TV, kitchen and bath amenities, housekeeping every three days, private parking. Optional cook, daily housekeeping, massage and boat rentals on request.
The popular resort town of Cefalù sits along Sicily’s northern coast a little more than an hour east of Palermo. A UNESCO designated town and historic fishing harbor, the pretty medieval streets are dominated by a 12th century Norman cathedral and an ancient hilltop fortress.
Charming and authentic, it’s known for its excellent restaurants that serve local seafood and wines and its many interesting shops.
The beautiful town of Santo Stefano di Camastra, famous for its ceramics and tiles is within a short drive and the rugged Madonie mountains are just over an hour drive inland with great hiking and forest trails and several medieval villages to explore.
Two of the island’s best north shore beaches, Mazzaforno and Settefrati are within a ten minute walk. For day trips, you can venture even further to the seven Aeolian islands, the volcanic chain just off shore. Sicily holds many natural and cultural charms, from Noto to Catania, the sister cities of Ragusa, Modica Scicli and beyond, the island is meant to be explored and savored.
