A beautiful place, a breathtaking view and the most welcoming hostess!! The accommodation offered everything we needed and with all the great tips we got from the hostess we had the ultimate stay in Céfalu. Thank you so much Marjolein!

Stayed here with my girlfriend in September. The apartment was clean and tidy with great views. The pool was a great plus especially when needing to cool down after a days sun bathing on the roof terrace.

I spent a week with a friend at the Ark in the apartment La Mimosa. It was delightful - the interior was basic but clean & comfortable and everything worked. The view from the terrace was amazing - only gets sun in the morning & early afternoon so was a little chilly in the evening but the view was so...

We are here again for the second year in a row. Now with our son of 1 year old. He had a fantastic time. He played in a bath with an amazing view (see pictures). He loved the beach. We decided to go again to L'Arca because it is value for your money. The apartments are extremely good for the...

Fantastic views, brilliant value for money and a great base for exploring the north of the island. Accommodation was basic but comfortable and the view was to die for - great terrace to enjoy it from. We almost booked Taormina - having checked it out we preferred Cefalu, which felt less touristy but still had everything you could want including...

The setting is amazing and the villa comfortable. Bobbing around in the lovely swimming pool looking down on Cefalu makes it quite hard to tear yourself away. We also really enjoyed chatting with Marjolan and her husband. She knows all the good places and how to sort out car hire etc and she's good fun. I'd recommend this place to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Villa L'Arca is a privately owned, self-catering Holiday complex with a fantastic view on Cefalù and its bay. It is just 3 km out of town so I advise you rent a car because the road is rather steep to walk. It is surrounded by vines, olive and citrus groves and lots of beautiful bougainvillae. A BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO RELAX AND ENJOY THE SCENERY AFTER A DAY EXPLORING THE ISLAND, LAZYING ON THE BEACH, HIKING IN THE MOUNTAINS OR PLAYING GOLF. ... more   less
