Hidden away a few miles from the lovely town of Cefalu you will find this castellated collection of apartments surrounded by tropical gardens on the edge of a hill. Incredible views across the sea and an infinity pool with lemon n lime trees abound , fragrances of lavender and rosemary wafting in the air. I felt this was a very... More

This place is so beautiful we wished we had booked to stay for longer. The view and grounds are stunning, the rooms clean, quiet and comfortable (great showers) and the pool is breathtaking. Domenico could not have been more helpful and friendly, he is a real asset to this place. We will be returning to Cefalù as it was one... More

Beautiful location with stunning views up a very steep twisty track. Car essential. We were one of only 3 couples there at the end of September so very quiet. Had the stunning pool completely to ourselves but beware of the mossies even in the middle of the day. Excellent breakfast but no dinner available. Had a ground floor double room.... More

The villa location and views along the bay to Cefalu from here are beautiful. The rooms are basic and clean, and everything worked OK. There is no air-conditioning, but they do provide large fans. We had a 1 bedroom apartment with a sofa bed in the kitchen/living area upstairs. There were great views from the upstairs room along the coast.... More

I give 4 out of 5 just because there are few things that that can be improved. The pro: the stunning location hidden between far to busy Cefalu and St Ambrogio in the hills from the main road connecting the two. Surrounded by olive trees, a farm land with so many other amazing products just naturally growing there. The hotel... More

An idyllic location, nestled on a hillside amongst orange groves, this place is gorgeous. We stayed in one of the little converted out buildings, with our own kitchen and living room and small garden. It's just perfect if you want somewhere to relax, to swim (the pool's massive and clean, with views over the sea), to read, and you're happy... More

Great location, very friendly and helpful staf, good and home-made breakfast, pure serenity at the pool with a great view. We would for sure recommend it to our friends. We had a car which was useful since the villa is about 7 km from cefalu centre. Rooms are very clean and nice.

Just returned from a week's stay. The accommodation is modest but practical; we are a family of 4 with 2 fairly young children who slept on a sofabed in the open plan kitchen/diner of our split level apartment. We had a great bedroom with comfy bed and fab shutters which blocked all light, had a lovely rest whilst there! The... More
