The Sicily region

In Sicily, Villa Giovanni is set 45 minutes from Palermo (75 km), at less than 25 minutes from Golf Club “Le Madonie” (16 km) , at 13 minutes away from Cefalù (5,5 km) and its magnificent sandy beaches and architectural beauties. Eolian Islands can be easily reached thanks to a daily hidrofoil race leaving from Cefalù harbour.

Cefalù is set on the northern coast, 75 kilometres east of Palermo, from which it is about forty-five minutes by car, a bit longer by train. Cefalù is a picturesque medieval fishing village that enjoys a splendid position between the sea and a rocky promontory (Rocca of Cefalù). Cefalù is a built on the site of an ancient Sican an Greek settlement. The town saw its maximum development under the Norman king Roger II, The town nowadays is divided in two parts an old part that is mainly for pedestrians and has many nice little boutiques, shops and restaurants, and a new modern part.

The old town centre is dominated by the cathedral. According to tradition the cathedral and the adjoining abbey and cloister, the building was erected after a vow made to the Holy Saviour by the King of Sicily, Roger II, after he escaped from a storm to land on the citys beach. The building was started in 1131. Imposing and attractive, the cathedral is a synthesis of several cultures. It was built by Norman architects and Arabic craftsmen, conditioned by Byzantine models. The interior is dominated by the solemn rhythm of the colonnade and by the image of Christ Pantocrator : a breathtaking mosaic dating back to 1138 on a gold background dominating the apse, above the Madonna, archangels and Apostles.

Mandralisca Museum is also surely worth seeing. Mandralisca, next to the cathedral square, is famous for its library, containing about 6,000 antique volumes, for its numismatic collection and especially for the paint “Portrait of an Unknown Man” by Antonello da Messina, one of the most famous painters of the European fifteenth century. A Saracen wash-house, the Lavatoio is another sight worth seeing, as is the medieval Osterio Magno, the remaining part of a large 13th-century palace. In any case, the whole old town is worth visiting to admire the picturesque and charming alleys and medieval buildings.

Around Cefalù, places of interest include the Sanctuary of Gibilmanna - a hillside pilgrimage destination-, the ruins of Greek Himera, the Natural Park of Madonie mountains and Castelbuono - a mountain medieval town about 25 kilometres from Cefalù famous for the castle once owned by the Ventimiglia family, feudal lords of several towns in the area-.

Finally, Cefalù is famous as touristic site also for its magnificent white sandy beaches. The main sandy beach is in front of Cefalù and it's called “lungomare”. There, it's possible to find many different lidos that offer sun beds and umbrellas, as well as public beaches where you can stay for free. Lungomare is mainly a tourist beach and is very safe and strongly recommended for families with children.

"Great location shame the villa wasn't fit for people to stay in."

We originally enquired with Giovanni about one of his properties in Cefalu, Sicily however he explained it was not available and so recommended this villa. I am glad that I checked from the advert tha… More

It was an unlucky staying. No doubts. But when the pipes of village do not work allof a sudden: you can get only tanks of water.Luckly they have finally repaired it. First, you have to consider that that there is only one tank truck in Campofelice and for Italian law it is the only authorized to work in the area: in other word I can not call a tank from Cefalù for example. Consider that this tank man works for civil protection and in case of fire in the area he can not do private work but he is obliged to work for firemans. There was a terrible fire in the area but my guest obvious do not know this situation 2)Tv. We were always full. All the weeks of june. There was wind the previous day of arrival and we called the tecnical. The guest arrived at 3, the tecnical arrived 3.30 and solved the problem in 20 minutes.The tecinical has a lot of works to do in the area and earliest time he could come it was 3. 3) The fuses box was broken by them and following week we changed without asking money.
4)Pool was not cleaned because fo lack of water. To clean pool you need pool. They would have preferred to have a perfect clean pool or stay without water for a shower? Next time we use all the water to have a perfect clean pool and we do not arrange water for shower, cooking, etc.. Normally we clean pool 3 times for week and always after a day of strong wind. We take also garbage 3 times for weeks.
Unlucky you, Unlucky us. I am sorry it was a bed luck moment for both. I was sorry but I could not kill myself because of this situation.
Least but not last we try to help our guest in all the way possibles. Consider THAT they payed 1.000 euro for 10 day. I gave them a discount of 300 euro so I got 700 euro. But I bought tanks OF WATER for 700 euro. In other words I earned 0 euro. Next time, but I do not think it will happen in the future because the village put a brand new pipe line, I will give them all money back AS SOONS AS I have propble with the pipes of village telling them that when there is a village pipe problem we can do nothing apArt giving back all their money and help the to find another accomodation.
