The Sicily region

Sicily has been the golden heart of the Mediterranean from early time, many people invaded the island from Phoenician to Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, and Spanish……leaving behind monuments and treasures to remind us of the past. The diversity can be seen in the different areas the Island of Morzia one of the oldest Phonecian settlements, Segeste, Selinunte, Valley of the Temples in Agrigento and Siracusa with its major Greek influence. In Palermo we have the perfect example of the Norman period with the Monreale cathedral. In the centre one of the most important villas during the Roman period is Roman Casale at Piazza Amerina.

In January, in the deep midwinter the average temperatures on the coast should still be hovering around the 10 deg.C . By February – March the days are starting to get warmer, although conditions in the mountains are still very wintery but along the coast winter is truly over.

April the wild flowers begin to truly explode all over Sicily and on the coast the first bathers start taking to the waters. The interior is spectacular, with the mountain slopes exploding in colour and the temperatures ideal for walking. By May the temperatures on the coast and in the islands will now be extremely comfortable.

June the first feel of summer by July the sea is the focus of the majority of tourist, the temperature is perfectly, at times quite hot.

August is the hottest month, Italian holiday time, people go the coast which become quite crowded.

September: Temperatures remain very comfortable everywhere, and the coast and islands retain that summer feeling, but without the crowds.

October is the most beautiful periods for country walking. Seasonal rainfalls help develop an astonishing variety of mushrooms.

The highest rainfall is generally in the month of November though the big storms that often sweep the Italian peninsula

In December the temperatures are around 10°C still have extremely agreeable temperatures during the days, though the sunlight hours are clearly at their lowest of the year.

Cefalu

One of the jewels of the Sicilian coast, Cefalù is dramatically sited on a headland, under a great, sheltering, rocky outcrop. It is from these two features, the headland and head shaped rock, that Cefalù’s name is thought to derive, from the Greek Kephale, or head. In a prime coastal location it was settled by the Sikels, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines and Arabs before the Normans arrived in the 11th Century and built the dramatic cathedral which gives the town its heart.

Cefalù’s narrow streets, full of character and lined with shops and restaurants, and beautiful central square, invite holiday-mood meanderings. In more recent years it has become a very popular holiday resort, but it has retained a bustling fishing village atmosphere and a rare combination of outstanding monuments and beautiful sandy beaches.

"Spotless & elegant, in the heart of Cefalù"

Lovely 1-bed apartment that would suit a couple on their own or with 1-2 others. Recently and elegantly redecorated and spotless. Kitchen was reasonably well equipped (just a hob, but if you are cooki… More
