The Experience

Bustling Cefalù is chock-a-block with visitors in high season but your first-floor apartment, although right in its beating heart, feels nicely tucked away. A recent renovation has created a calm space with clean lines, muted colours and the odd pop of colour; French windows let the light flood in. The three bedrooms are peaceful with double glazed windows to shut out the noisy hordes (the cobblestone street is closed to traffic during the summer). The jewel of this apartment is the outside space – an oasis of calm – that invites you to sip dry Sicilian white wine or eat alfresco; and off here is a fabulous hammam and plunge pool – all yours. Hands on owner, Massimo, goes the extra mile and can arrange airport pick-ups, hampers, cookery classes, guided tours, you name it! The town is renowned for its 12th-century Norman cathedral, there are regular music and food festivals, heaps of great places to eat and it’s only a stone’s throw to the beach and crystal clear waters. You’re inside the Madonie Natural Park so walking, hiking and wildlife spotting are all possible and you’re less than an hour from fascinating Palermo.
