The Villa and cottages offer private access to the beach, so you can choose to relax amidst nature, greenery and fruit trees, or to slip down to the beach and take a dip or gaze at the endless ebb and flow of the waves. Restaurants and an organic fruit and vegetable stall are all available within a few minutes walk, and each cottage has its own private bar-b-que facilities. We are situated on the outskirts of the beautiful Norman town of Cefalu' – the scenic ‘jewel in the crown’ of Sicily - and within view of the great nature reserve of the Madonie mountains.
For the more energetic, kitesurfing or wind surfing is available on the beach, and our residents are free to use the Fly Junior or Laser1 yachts, or take out a canoe and scout out the coast. Sports facilities such as tennis, golf, horse-riding are available within 5 km.

The Sicily region
The special geographic position of Cefalu means that you have easy access to all the main areas of historical and cultural interest in Sicily, by going on excursions lasting no more than 2 hours.
Mount Etna, Taormina, Acireale and Catania and Siracusa (Unisco World Heritage Site), are about 2 hours away; the stunning and famous Greek temple and theatre at Segesta, and the Roman Villa of Casale at Piazza Armerina (also a World Heritage Site) are just 1.5 hours away; the artistic and archaeological treasures of Palermo, Monreale, Tindari are less than an hour away; the Madonne mountain range, a natural asset jealously guarded by Sicilians, with its dramatic hilltop villages like Castelbuono, Isnello and Gratteri are just half an hour’s distance.
And you will be surprised to discover that each year brings widespread snow, and you can ski at Piano Battaglia, located further inland in the Madonie.
But the real pearl is Cefalu, with its fabulous scenic panoramas and the town itself, which arose out of fishing and navigation, with which divinities, kings and adventurers all fell in love, from the ancient Goddess Diana to the Norman King Roger, and for you also it is certain to be an experience of love at first sight!
Charming and romantic restaurants abound, both here and in the neighbouring towns and villages, offering the finest traditional Sicilian food and wine, both of high quality and value.
During the high summer season the area – which attracts many visitors as do all of the fine beaches of Cefalu, offers a full array of enjoyable recreational activities, and the low season is a time to appreciate the peace and quiet of the countryside, which you will have all to yourselves.
Within easy reach are a variety of sports facilities such as tennis, golf, horse-riding etc, located under 5 km away. At a large nearby hotel you can avail of a waterpark and a wellness centre.
On the beach you can take on the more energetic sports of kite surfing or windsurfing, or you can take a short trip in a sailing boat like the Fly Junior or the Laser1, available to residents, or if you prefer there is the more relaxing option of a canoe trip to scout out the beautiful Cefalu coast.
