A comfortable country house with a beautiful sea view nestled in the beautiful countryside and yet just few minutes from Cefalù and 1 hour from Palermo. Ideal base for day-trips to the Aeolian Islands or to the sicilian west coast. At the same time you can easily organize interesting tours to the small historical centers as Castelbuono and others (Gratteri, Isnello... ) and Madonie Regional Park.
The views from all points are stunning:is wonderfully private and secluded. Minimum 4 days stay.

The space

The house is very comfortable and functional: has 1 double-bedroom, 1 bathroom with shower, kitchen, living room with fireplace area. In the loft floor there is the other double bedroom (single beds). Two months ago the owners have renewed the bathroom and the kitchen so they are really new.

The countryhouse has lot of openspaces, where to relax (in front of the house in the terrace and in the barbecue area).

Raffaella's house was a great retreat from the world. Scenic, spacious and full of charm. We stayed for a few nights and enjoyed the quiet and being able to have space to ourselves. The outdoor fire BBQ was great. The location was central enough for day trips and to explore the area but also secluded enough to feel as though you were truly away from it all. A great place to relax and recharge. All of our communication with Raffaella was easy and prompt.

Very nice located with prime view of the sea and the Rocca di Cefalu. We very much enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to come again. Communication with Rafaella was always easy with short response time from her side. She also speaks English well (not everyone in Sicily does).

We stayed at Raffaella's house for one week as part of a 3,5 week vacation around Sicily. The house is beautifully situated in an olive grove on a hill side high above the sea. The view is simply stunning! The house a long terrace that covers the entire length of the house, which is perfect for relaxing and dining. On another side of the house there is a barbecue area which has sun in the morning. The place is quiet and secluded with beautiful nature all around. The house is tastefully and authentically decorated, and the pictures doesn't quite do it justice. The house is a 20 minute ride from Céfalu by car - and a car is definitely a must if you stay here. The road leading up to the house is really steep with a lot of hairpin bends and is probably best driven by experienced drivers. The first time is a bit stressful but once you know the road it is not a problem.

We met Raffaela at the beginning of the street, were she showed us the road. She is a very kind and flexible host and basically everything was there. Their house is spacious and clean and in the kitchen she left some things for breakfast! The house is situated above Cefalu, which you reach in 10 minutes. A car is a must! If you're looking for a quiet place, this is the place to be! Grazie Raffaela!

We spent a fab week in this country house on the hills of Cefalu. The views from the house are magnificent. The house is very nice, comfortable and clean. It has everything you need. It feels like home! You can even enjoy great barbecues overlooking the Mediterranean. As the house is up on a mountain, it is challenging and fun to get up there. It takes a couple of times to get the hang of it, but it is worth it. The hosts, Raffaella and Mauricio are very friendly and helpful and they make themselves available for enquiries or any possible issues. Cefalu is only 10 mins drive from the house. This house provides a great combination of beach and forest and also a great place for tracking. Highly recommended!!

Casa indipendente immersa nel verde e in collina poco sopra Cefalù. La casa è ottima per 4 persone e per gli amanti della natura e della tranquillità. Ben attrezzata sia dentro che in giardino e se siete fortunati come noi la sera vi faranno compagnia dei ciccioli di cinghiale ..... bellissima esperienza.

Maison avec vue vraiment superbe sur la mer. Bon accueil de Raffaella et de son mari. Effectivement le chemin pour monter est un peu stressant, mais une fois arrivé à la maison, c'est un pur bonheur. Il y a un pylône électrique à haute tension juste a coté de la maison, et de mon point de vue (cela n'engage que moi) il est un peu dérangeant. La propreté dans la cuisine et la salle de bain pourrait être améliorée. Mais cela reste une très belle location, je recommande.
