Liked best: The terrace and the outdoor area.
Liked least: In the beginning I disliked the steep hills up to the apartement. Remember to turn off air-condition in the car when you go up the hills. After a couple of times yo get used to the hills.

“Wonderful place to stay”

We had a very enjoyable wek in Villa Laura. Beautiful views and very nice Italian neighbours. I is the highest house on a little steep road with spectacular views but with easy access to beaches. I would recommend the public Kalura beach although it is mainly stony. Very comfortable appartment for a couple with all you could want included and we thought it was much better than some of the other places had looked at.

“Stunning views with everything you need for a great vacation”
Reviewed October 2, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Villa Laura is the best place to have a vacation for those who are tired of people, crowds or work. It is close to the charming medieval town Cefalu, but a car is strongly recommended. Villa is placed as the last destination at the short, well-made serpentine road which is going up steeply. The tastefully designed living space includes the bedroom, bathroom, and the comfortable sitting room united with the kitchen.
But the main attractive point is an extremely pleasant feeling of quietness, you feel it early in the morning when drink a first cup of coffee at the terrace with stunning views of the see and Cefalu, during hot afternoon when take a sunbath, in the evening with barbeque at open veranda or even during the night when stars shine and air is so fresh and the aroma of pine trees surrounds you. The villa owners did their best to make our rest perfect. We stayed there for 10 days, visited not only Cefalu, also Etna, the Valley of the Temples, and Madonie national park. Thanks for good roads those long trips were not tedious. We highly recommend Villa Laura if you want to have a great vacation in Sicily.

My husband and I stayed at Villa Laura for 6 nights in July, 2012. The apartment, which is connected to the owner's villa, is clean, spacious and includes 2 wonderful terraces. One terrace with a very large dining area and the other with a wonderful view to the sea. The property is located in the hills overlooking the sea in an area that is very quiet and secure. There is an electric gate to enter the property. The kitchen is extremely well appointed and included fresh fruit, milk, croissants, water, herbs and much more. We were able to prepare wonderful meals and then enjoy then outside on the terrace. Our hosts, Cosimo, Assunta and Laura, were very friendly and loved to sit with us and chat, but they also respected our space and privacy. On our last evening is Cefalu, they treated us to a traditional Sicilian meal. The food and company were wonderful and we will remember this part of our visit forever. Thank you very much for a lovely stay at Villa Laura and we hope to return soon! Daniel and Carole from Canada.

“You could not wish for a warmer welcome to Sicily!”
Reviewed June 25, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

We stayed 4 nights at Villa Laura in late May/early June 2012. We loved every minute of our time there. The owners are wonderful hosts... warm and welcoming... and Laura, their daughter, speaks very good English. We were very touched to be invited to join in a family party during our stay when we were treated to delicious food (cooked outdoors), drinks and excellent company. A real highlight of our visit to Sicily!

The apartment is secure, extremely comfortable and well-equipped. Our hosts kindly left us a 'welcome pack' (tea/coffee/croissants etc) for our first night until we got to the supermarket in Cefalu the following day. The villa has a very spacious terrace with stunning views overlooking Cefalu bay and is perfect for outdoor dining/relaxing in the sun.

We highly recommend Villa Laura for a relaxing holiday.

THANK YOU! from Stephanie and Jaimie
