Carob Tree cottage appealed to us because of its location on a small olive plantation and right on the beach. The description was accurate and the cottage and grounds exceded our expectations. Dario was very welcoming and we felt welcome to roam where ever on his property. I had mentioned to Dario in an email we had just got married...

We've spent two great weeks at this place. The location of the property is perfect - with nice quiet green and blooming area around, restaurant nearby, just few minutes drive to the charming Cefalu town and the gate opening to the great beach. The territory is enormous and very well maintained with dozens (maybe hundreds) of olive, lemon trees (freesh...

I was looking for a simple rural retreat where my husband and I could relax, sunbathe, and experience the best of the Sicilian beach experience and the Oasis di Salinelle and Carob Tree Cottage more than lived up to our expectations. Everything, from the drive to the cottage alongside an olive grove where tomatoes grow in rows to the pine...

About the neighborhood
But the real pearl is Cefalu, with its fabulous scenic panoramas and the town itself, which arose out of fishing and navigation, with which divinities, kings and adventurers all fell in love, from the ancient Goddess Diana to the Norman King Roger, and for you also it is certain to be an experience of love at first sight!

Charming and romantic restaurants abound, both here and in the neighbouring towns and villages, offering the finest traditional Sicilian food and wine, both of high quality and value.

During the high summer season the area – which attracts many visitors as do all of the fine beaches of Cefalu, offers a full array of enjoyable recreational activities, and the low season is a time to appreciate the peace and quiet of the countryside, which you will have all to yourselves...
