We stayed 4 nights 17-21 May 15 before moving onto Taormina - wish we'd have stayed longer at Villa Cerniglia. I can only agree with ALL the great positive comments others have made previously and find it difficult to believe there can be any negatives. Alberto is a top man, so welcoming and helpful and well supported by family members.... More

We stayed two nights instead of planned one night. Location allows privacy on beach and a very short walk to the main town center. Management was extremely caring about all guest. Room recently renovated was large, modern, and well appointed. This was our favorite of eight places we stayed in Sicily. B&B is a villa converted to a marvelous Facility.... More

We happened upon Villa Cerniglia on our last two days of a 10 day Sicilian vacation when the vacation rental we had booked was not what we expected. We desperately began a search for an alternative and Alberto, the owner/manager, came to our aid. We were given a beautiful sea view room with terrace, and the day went from discouraging... More

Very good location becouse you have 20 min to old town and 1 min to the beach. Villa Cerniglia isnt expensive, my room was clean. Breakfast taste genious becouse is HOMEMADE !!! but if you dont like caffe and croissant on breakfast you should buy something to eat earlier.

Villa Cernigliia is the perfect base for exploring Cefalu and the North of Sicily. Right on the beach, a pleasant 10 minute stroll to the old town, and a 15 minute walk to the train and bus station. Palermo is less than an hour away by train and there are buses and coach excursions to other parts of the Island.... More

Villa Cerniglia Cefalu We started our Sicily trip in Cefalu. We had booked Villa Cerniglia and it was a good choice. We had a warm welcome by the owner and we got exactly what we had asked for: a quiet room with a sunny terrace (all day) and sea view. Breakfast was served on our private terrace by a kind... More

We stayed here one night and 3 nights at the apartments owner Alberto offered us (he owns them as well). Hotel room was not that clean, old, breakfast was very, very poor. Owner and staff is very friendly, 2 min walk from beach (beach equipment is included in the price). Because of the owner we got discount at the snorkeling.... More

The room was lovely, very peaceful considering so close to the beach. The owners were super friendly and we were even served breakfast on our own balcony. Only ten minute walk from the old town and the owner's private beach is only a 1 minute walk across the road. Basically having the best of both world - beach and old... More

We stayed in Villa Cerniglia for 6 nights the last week in September. I booked the room directly through "Alberto" via email and he was fantastic - as promised he kept us a sea facing front room with a balcony, it was huge! We had 2 double bedrooms, a kitchen and bathroom for just the 2 of us - the... More
