“Like a movie, but it's real!”
Reviewed June 18, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

There are a variety of cottages to choose from, so depending on your needs you'll need to investigate. My cottage was clean, spacious and functional, and the grounds of this oasis are just what we imagine Sicily to be from the Sicily we see in the movies. A feeling of relaxation comes over you immediately when you arrive and walk around the green pasture and among the fruit trees. If that isn't relaxing enough, walk a few steps and you are on a sicilian beach!
If you're looking for tranquility, this is it!
Of course, Cefalu' culture, unique beaches and nightlife is but a short hop away. Also, Palermo, Italy's Coolest City, is also a short drive or train ride away for you to discover.
Kudos also to the staff. The owner is very attentive to all your needs. Not sure who the Swedish girl is helping out, but she was a great help as well, and she speaks many languages!

“Great house, but very noisy road!!!”

The house has two floors with kitchen and living areas below, and three bedrooms above. There is also a terrace upstairs as well as an entry patio on the ground floor, and lots of nice trees and plants in the surrounding garden. The beach is a short walk thorugh the property. The kitchen was well equipped. The living area, not so much. There is no real "living room" where a group can comfortably sit and talk or watch television. There is a bathroom upstairs as well as one downstairs. We liked the three bedrooms and found the beds comfortable. There was adequate storage space. The kitchen and bathrooms were clean and linens were provided. It is a seven to ten minute drive into Cefalu to the market, the shops and the sights. Wonderful town--we enjoyed our visits there very much, as well as our drives exploring the mountains behind Cefalu.

There were, however, some negatives. First of all, the road itself is right next to the house. There is not a lot of traffic, but there is some, and when a car shoots by at high speed on this road it seems like it is coming right through your bedroom. Sleep was nearly impossible. We all used ear plugs and the cars still woke us regularly. It was warm while we were there and we would have enjoyed keeping our windows open but to cut down on the noise we kept everything closed up. Not comfortable. In addition, the owner has a collection of dogs at his house which is attached to the rental. There were many dogs, including several puppies, and lots of barking and squealing throughout the day and, alas, at night as well. This was not a peaceful place.

We did enjoy the proximity to the beach and to the train into Palermo (which takes only an hour). Dario was always friendly and helpful, but there wasn't much he could do about the road noise-- or the dogs apparently. Not our perfect vacation spot and we would not return. There were other rentals on the property away from the road that looked charming and would undoubtedly have been quieter. For those not bothered by noise, the house was very nice and well appointed, the location near the beach and town very easy to navigate, and the owner very helpful and cooperative. .

Grazie Sceila, l'Oasi delle Salinelle ringrazia e sara' sempre contenta di poterti avere sua ospite qui ma...Fidel Trespolino ed Oslo sono un po' arrabbiati per non essere stati menzionati nella tua recenzione :)
Ci vediamo presto al mare!!
