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 is less than an hour's drive along the coast, east of Sicily's capital Palermo. It has long been one of Sicily's most beautiful and popular resorts. Walking through the historic centre of the town you will discover charming cobbled streets lined with interesting local shops and excellent restaurants. At its heart, in the town's main square, stands the imposing Norman cathedral built in 1132 by King Roger 2nd. The huge image of Christ Pantocrator in the cathedral's apse is remarkable. Close-by, the long stretch of sandy beach is popular with both locals and tourists, and as the sun sets over the sea, the promenade comes alive for the evening passegiata. Cefalu is not just a seaside resort, but also makes a convenient base from which to explore the interior of the island. A short drive away is the Madonie National Park, with its breathtaking mountain landscapes and picturesque hill-top villages, perfect for walking and cycling, and even for skiing in the winter months.

"Clean and tidy apartement with a wonderful terrace and a good bed"
We were very happy with our stay at Villa Laura. The first time we saw the terrace we were speechless. It was so big and beautiful with plenty of sun-beds and chairs. Our daughter, who slept in the kitchen/living-room, was happy to have WI-FI on the terrace. We never got tired of the view from the terrace. The first time we drove up the hills we were taken by surprise, because it was incredibly steep, but you do get used to it. The indoor area is not big, but it is nice and tidy with plenty of equipment in the kitchen.The bed was also good. The family made us feel very welcome and they even invited us to their home.made food. We would like to go back to VIlla Laura! It is especially suitable for couples. You can have a very relaxing time here.

This is a privileged property located on the side of a hill. The apartment is attached to the house of the owners. It is comfortable and well equipped. The terrace, who would normally be part of the main house, is conveniently separated and included in the rental. The result is and amazing space to dine and spend time, with a pleasant view of the Mediterranean sea. The owners are helpful and courteous. The location is excellent to access the north side of the island, and Cefalù is a lovely town that is worth exploring.

"Staying at Villa Laura was the best part of a great holiday"
Where to start! if you love friendly ,kind and amazing owners then please do as we did and stay here.The family made our holiday so special , they even cooked a traditional Sicilian BBQ for us one evening.The villa is attached to theirs and has the most magical views and is immaculate, although fresh veg and gifts were showered on us they did not intrude.It is up a single track which is very steep but they meet you on the first day and drive in front to show you the way.Cefalu was our favourite town and the atmosphere great, we took a boat trip to the islands and saw a live volcano and swam in the sea after rolling in the healthy mud!We spent a week hers and a week on the east coast this is by far the best.
