“At the piazza, next to duomo...”
Reviewed 6 August 2011

... and a balcony just above the life down on the central piazza of Cefalu! Cefalu is crowded in high season, but not even hundreds of tourists can destroy the charm of this city.
The apartments are huge (living room with kitchen, bedroom, bathroom). Try to get one of the apartments facing the piazza, the backside apartments have their windows towards on of the small streets of Cefalu (dont even think about stealing the underwear of la mamma at the window on the other side of the street!)

We had five great days in Cefalú, and the apartment was perfect, located right by the big piazza. Good kitchen, big terrace, all equipment andr very nice staff.

We have two kids 4 and 6 years old and we stayed at Palazzo Maria during easter for 17 days and rented a car to go for small excursions. We wanted a clean apartment for 4 with a kitchen and a terrace. We stayed in the Guglielmo apartment which has a basic but functional kitchen and the apartment was roomy, clean and nicely renovated.

The staff was very helpful and friendly. They were also knowledgeable about Cefalu and surroundings and had very good English skills.

There was a terrace with a table facing a back street. The location is excellent by the Plaza Duomo and there are plenty of stores to buy fruit, vegetables, water and freshly baked bread within 100m from the apartment. There is also a huge terrace on the roof shared by all the apartments, it had fantastic views of the city.

We booked the apartment through an agency but we got very different pricing from different agencies so we ended up using a Swiss/UK based agency instead of an agency from our own country.

Overall Cefalu and Palazzo Maria was a great place to make small excursions from with small kids, highlights inlcuded the fantastic italian food, hanging at the beach, trip to Vulcano island, trip to the regional park south of Cefalu and watching Palermo beat Napoli in a Seria A football game

Room Tip: Get a large kitchen if you plan to eat in a lot
