This is a super apartment - well equipped, comfortable, clean. With a washing machine/dryer, iron, clothes stand, pegs, microwave, oven, hair dryer, everything you would need fior a comfortable stay! There are also lovely little touches - subdued lighting, candle holders, little decorative ornaments, plants....... We paid a bit extra for air-conditioning - it was worth it! It can get very hot! The steps down to the town are very convenient, though it is also possible to continue along the road towards the Rocca and take older steps directly into the centro storico. We loved this apartment, particularly its convenience to the town of Cefalù. We were very lucky to be able to park along the cobbled street above the apartment and we only left our spot once during our stay. Otherwise, it’s a difficult route to negotiate each day! My advice - park, stay and walk everywhere - it’s far less stressful than the drive! Highly recommended - we will hopefully return!
We stayed 2 weeks at La Casa della Luna in Cefalu. It had everything we needed during our stay and everything worked such as the hot water, electricity and cooker etc. The apartment is a good size for 2 people and the patio is lovely and a good size. We were able to see several firework displays that happened during our stay from the patio. We cooked at the apartment on some of the nights we stayed in Cefalu, and ate out on the patio, which was lovely to do under the stars and watched several beautiful sunsets from there too. There was a bad storm one night during our stay and for a brief period the cooker did not work after this, although all the other electrics were fine. However, Sergio was very helpful and responsive and the cooker worked quickly again after a phone call to Sergio.
The lady that owns the property came to see us on our last night as she lives next door. She was lovely and we told her we had thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The other good thing about the apartment is that it is within easy walking distance from Cefalu railway station, so we were able to do a few trips to other places such as Palermo easily. The apartment is also within easy walking distance to Cefalu town and the main supermarkets, etc.
We had a great holiday and loved Cefalu and would come back to this beautiful place again.
Just returned from a fabulous two week break in this great accommodation. It was easy to book with good communication with Sergio the property manager who also organised us our airport transfer as we didn't want to hire a car. It is possible to get the train but as we were travelling on Sunday the service was more sporadic. Everything was clean and well presented. A nice touch on arrival was water, juice and a bowl of fresh fruit in the fridge. We were met by a young Californian guy at the apartment to explain how things worked and provided with local map info and restaurant tips. He explained where the office was if we had any issues and relevant contact details. No probs at all. The lady who owns the place lives in a nearby property and introduced herself the next day. On the night before we were leaving she left a bar of beautiful Italian soap and a note thanking us for visiting! So location wise about 10 mins downhill to the beach and many restaurants, delightful shops, quirky streets, the cathedral...everything in easy distance. However the stunning view comes at a price if you are unfit or not great on your feet as you need to go up or down steps to reach the apartment. Not a problem for us but I did count the steps.. 60 of them can be a challenge in the heat. Other thing to consider are the various night time noises of barking dogs. Again didn't bother us but next door has a couple which are vocal at times! Directly behind the apartment is La Rocca absolutely stunning. I admit we didn't climb it way to hot for that. The outside space is ideal for breakfast or a cold beer after a hard day at the beach. Washing machine was great with airer to use outside and also a iron and ironing board. You can pay for air con as an extra but because the ceiling is high the heat wasn't a problem at night. Well equipped kitchen which we didn't cook in on account of the vast choice of great restaurants but its all there if you want it. Overall I recommend this accommodation and would definitely stay again if we had the chance to return to Cefalu.
