A small, comfortable, fully-equipped apartment for you to enjoy an unforgettable holiday in the heart of wonderful Cefalu, which has been visited for centuries by travelers from all over the world. Our apartment is located in the town square in front of the extraordinary Arab-Norman Cathedral, one of the architectural jewels of Sicily. From here it is possible to walk to the Mandralisca Museum, which hosts a famous painting by Antonello da Messina; to start a walk up La Rocca, the hill overlooking the town from where a breathtaking view of the coast from Palermo to Messina can be enjoyed; or to go for a swim in the clear, blue sea near the picturesque local fishermen's port, along the street of the shopping. From Cefalu it is easy to travel by train to Palermo; to the magnificent Madonie Mountains and their nature park; to all the main sites of Western Sicily (Agrigento, Piazza Armerina, Catania, Taormina and the volcano Mount Etna) with organized trips or with public buses; and also to the unique Aeolian Islands. Our apartment is on the first floor of Palazzo Villelmi, which dates back to the 15th century and still has a simple corner window from that period with a little column in the middle. It is a valuable document of the bourgeoisie taste from the Renaissance, showing also the signs of an inscription on its arch. The apartment is composed of 2 beautiful balconies overlooking the main square, living room with kitchenette, bathroom with shower, single bedroom, double bedroom in the loft and a sofa bed in the living room.

The apartment is in an ancient building in a medieval neighbourhood, steps from the cathedral (worth seeing in itself) and the city square. It's a fun location, nearby to bars, shops, restaurants, etc. Vibrant city life is right under your balcony. The place is clean, the bed

There isn’t much more to say that hasn’t been said already. This was a gem right in the middl of the town. Could not have got better location. We had a small apartment split on several levels. That didn’t matter as it was very comfortable and surprisingly quiet. The stairs were

Terrific location beside the main square but you are well protected from a noise point of view as the apartment is facing to the rear of the courtyard . Really quaint ,on three different levels--kitchen at the bottom ,bedroom in the middle and a little sittingroom at the top.

"the room with view to the Cathedral, firts floor"
"Close to shopping Beach and shopping."
"Get a room facing street"
"Ask for the room at the corner of the building...it has the best view facing Norman cathedral and La Rocca (nearby rocky hill...just behind the cathedral)"
"There are only 4 apartments. We didn't have a balcony, but there were at least 1 or 2 rooms which did and this would be nice."
