Truly amazing house which has been superbly designed so that the windows from all the rooms capture the sea views and the natural beauty of the countryside that surrounds it.

The first impression is as though one is stepping into a Mediterranean oasis. It's fresh colours, the Sicilian influence in the ceramics, the unique touches that express the warmth and dedication that has gone into making the house welcoming to all.

Every window has a view even the bathroom at the back of the house the owner has managed to create a window which one can still see the sea at the front of the house and also the garden/countryside at the back of the house.

Interior: all the rooms have glass sliding doors where one can enter the house. The kitchen is newly equipment and designed with practicality and extremely functional. Next to the kitchen there's the lounge area with open sofa where you can sit and read or admire the sensational sea views. The fireplace in the lounge area makes the ambiance warm and cosy on a cold winter days.

The study/library is next to the lounge then the corridor that leads into the bedrooms and bathrooms.

Exterior: there's a small pool in the wooden decking in front of the house, that one can dip into or sit around enjoying the sun evening sunset. Approaching the house there's several benches in the garden then a dining area with table and chairs and finally the outside kitchen with barbeque and wood oven, great for pizza making. Before entering the house on the left is outdoor lounge area where one can relax and enjoy the cool afternoon breeze.

The Sicily region

Sicily is the largest region of Italy, with a population of 5 milion people. It has one of the richest histories starting from the ingenious people Sicuni & Siculi, Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Spanish and the Bourban.

Each one leaving behind a trace of their presence, even the people their physical characteristics can easily resemble a Greek, Arabic or Germanic. The Sicilian dialect has some influences from the Arabic, the French from the time of the Sicilian Vespers. Important places to visit Monreale, Agrigento, Siracusa, Piazza Amerina, Cefalù, Noto.

The hottest months are July and August, the winters are mild around 10° - 15°C.


Cefalu 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.

"Breathtaking view"

This house is a truly relaxed and stylish holiday home. The owner obviously takes great pride in the property and has many installations of stones or driftwood and cactus about the home plus a great herb garden next to the kitchens. The house well equipped and nothing is too precious in design You will need a car, one has to access the place winding up a hill near Cefalu. We took trips into Cefalu to eat and shop, also did longer road trips to explore. It was always so good to back 'home'. Wifi not good. Margherita was our extremely capable and charming agent, we thank her. Beautiful Sicily !!

Thank you for your review. I'm happy that you had a nice time. I hope to have you as my guests again in the future

Thank you

"Fantastique séjour"

Nous avons séjourné dans cette splendide villa pendant une semaine et ce séjour a répondu entièrement à notre attente de détente et de repos. Conçue par un architecte, la villa est décorée avec goût . Elle dispose de 2 chambres, 2 salles de bain, un séjour ouvert vers l'extérieur avec de grandes baies vitrées et une cuisine très bien équipée. Toute la conception de la villa appelle au repos : ouverture vers l'extérieur dans toutes les pièces, vue panoramique, terrasse très agréable et on se sent très vite comme "chez soi" . A découvrir absolument !
Seul défaut : L'accès en voiture est un peu compliqué ( route très abrupte)
