Palazzo Maria is perfectly located for a stay in Cefalu. It is literally right next to the Duomo steps in the main square! We spent three nightst here in June 2014 and have been really surprised when reading some of the other reviews. There was some noise but only what we expected due to the location and it certainly didn't disturb us. Augustine was very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay, providing us with good advice.
The apartment was very spacious and clean and the kitchen was handy for preparing breakfasts and snacks. There was a large communal roof terrace with a great view but it was far too hot for us to spend much time up there. We thought Palazzo Maria was great value for money and we would stay here again.More
