Cefalu, Province of Palermo, Sicily
Really nice apartment for 4 people up to 6, in the heart of the historical centre of Cefalu’, near the famous Norman’s Cathedral and at 150 mt from the lovely beach.
Osterio Magno apartment has been recently renovated with lot of character and a nice artistic touch.
The location of this apartment is in the absolute centre of the town, right next to Corso Ruggero, where there are shopping, typical Sicilian restaurants and outdoor coffees which are ideal for relaxing and watching the daily activities.
It is located just in front the historical King Roger II’s palace (Osterio Magno) and it is perfectly indicated for tourists who want to enjoy the life of this old fishing village, now a small town, perched between the sea and a craggy limestone promontory, land marked by a cathedral and a maze of narrow streets.

There is no question; Ostrio Magno is the the perfect apartment in the center of the old city of Cefalu and Dario Livechi is an exceptional host. He was always available by phone and helped us personally with any questions or problems. He, very kindly, brought us oranges from the family farm and welcomed us with a bottle of wine....
