There is a balcony 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. The apartment (about 90 sqm ) is so arranged: large and charming living room with a comfortable sofa bed, TV, table with chairs, a big bedroom with a double bed, another bedroom with two single beds that can be joined as a double bed, if necessary, a well equipped kitchen with cooking utensils, gas, oven, microwave, boiler and all the necessary, a dining room and two bathroom with a shower. The two bedrooms face on a balcony exactly in front of the “Osterio Magno”.More

About the neighbourhood
You will be located and immersed in the hearth of 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.
Getting around
Piazza Garibaldi is the easier place to find to reach my apartment in just 3 minutes walk.
