"Lovely house close to beaches"
The house was newly decorated and had all we needed for cooking al fresco on the large patio outside the house. Was ideal as there were 2 families which meant we could eat together but had some privacy also. The house is close to the sea and there are a few beaches to choose from. Its only a few minutes from Cefalu too which was lovely to visit in the evenings.

"A peaceful and pleasant place for family vacation"
Me and my family (my wife and two sons) spent ten wonderful days in the Almond House near Cefalu, Sicily. The house is an ideal place for a peaceful family vacation. It is located ca. 7 km from Cefalu, in a hilly area with a nice view to the sea (the house is located a few hundreds meters away from the sea). The house is placed in such a position that there is always a slight breeze blowing. Therefore, it is pleasant even when the outside temperature is 40 degrees. The house is enough spacious for a 4-members family. It has 3 rooms, kitchen, bathroom and a fine yard with sun loungers, table and chairs. The parking lot is also available. The house is very clean, comfortable, safe, and equipped with the new furniture, air/conditioning, satellite TV and wireless internet. The host, Renato, is very kind and pleasant person. He welcomed us with a bottle of good Sicilian wine. The place is really a great base for excursions to the all island. During our stay we visited Palermo (two times), Monreale, Catania, Siracusa, Taormina and Messina. When we were not on an excursion, we were going to Cefalu for sunbathing, swimming (the beaches are beautiful), sightseeing, shopping, the night life. The town is beautiful, especially its medieval part, adorned with famous cathedral and other old buildings. Of course, you need a car for these visits. We covered ca. 30 km every day (for 2 trips to Cefalu, matinal and evening) but it was easy. There is no traffic jams. The parking lot in Cefalu could be found easily, near the beaches, for 3-5 euros per 12 hours.

"sea and quiet"
I would like to thank the owner of the house for warm welcome (...good wine bottle).
We really liked the house, it absolutely matchs the photos on website.
Here you can find everything you need and what is more important all clean and in a very good condition.
The quiet area but still close to everything and no noise from the nearby motorway.
In general I would say it's a perfect place for a family holidays.
Thanks, it was a pleasure to host you.
We wait you again to taste together a good bottle of Sicilian wine

"Beautiful and Peaceful"
The property is high up with beautiful landscaping. The apartment was clean and modern. It was lovely to sit on the patio and enjoy our meals surrounded by flowers and foliage. The owner, Andrea, and the owner's friend were always available to provide the best stay possible. It was lovely. Joanna and Robert Reed
I am happy to have welcomed you.
I hope you come back to visit Sicily.
