Information about Cefalù.
In Sicily, Villa Giovanni is set 45 minutes from Palermo (75 km), at 12 minutes driving away from Cefalù (5,5 km) and its magnificent sandy beaches and architectural beauties. Eolian Islands can be easily reached thanks to a daily hidrofoil race leaving from Cefalù harbour.

Cefalù is set on the northern coast, 75 kilometres east of Palermo, from which it is about forty-five minutes by car, a bit longer by train. Cefalù is a picturesque medieval fishing village that enjoys a splendid position between the sea and a rocky promontory (Rocca of Cefalù). Cefalu is the second most visited area in Sicily, second only to Taormina. So it is a very touristic place full of very nice restaurants, pubs, shops of all kind and in the summer it is one of the most attractive area of whole Sicily for night life.
Cefalù is a built on the site of an ancient Sican an Greek settlement. The town saw its maximum development under the Norman king Roger II, The town nowadays is divided in two parts an old part that is mainly for pedestrians and has many nice little boutiques, shops and restaurants, and a new modern part.

The old town centre is dominated by the cathedral. Imposing and attractive, the cathedral is a synthesis of several cultures. It was built by Norman architects and Arabic craftsmen, conditioned by Byzantine models. The interior is dominated by the solemn rhythm of the colonnade and by the image of Christ Pantocrator : a breathtaking mosaic dating back to 1138 on a gold background dominating the apse, above the Madonna, archangels and Apostles.


Mandralisca Museum is also surely worth seeing. Mandralisca, next to the cathedral square, is famous for its library, containing about 6,000 antique volumes, for its numismatic collection and especially for the paint “Portrait of an Unknown Man” by Antonello da Messina, one of the most famous painters of the European fifteenth century. A Saracen wash-house, the Lavatoio is another sight worth seeing, as is the medieval Osterio Magno, the remaining part of a large 13th-century palace. In any case, the whole old town is worth visiting to admire the picturesque and charming alleys and medieval buildings.


Around Cefalù, places of interest include the Sanctuary of Gibilmanna - a hillside pilgrimage destination-, the ruins of Greek Himera, the Natural Park of Madonie mountains and Castelbuono - a mountain medieval town about 25 kilometres from Cefalù famous for the castle once owned by the Ventimiglia family, feudal lords of several towns in the area-.
Finally, Cefalù is famous as touristic site also for its magnificent white sandy beaches. The main sandy beach is in front of Cefalù and it’s called “lungomare”. There, it’s possible to find many different lidos that offer sun beds and umbrellas, as well as public beaches where you can stay for free. Lungomare is mainly a tourist beach and is very safe and strongly recommended for families with children..

Stayed Saturday 04 April 2009
Casa Bazen is in a great location with amazing views of the sea and Cefalu. It is a very homely and comfortable villa and ideal for a group of friends or large family who enjoy relaxing, cooking and dining together. The inside and outside spaces are varied and spacious and the stone baked pizza oven was especially good fun.

We stayed for one week in mid August, 5 adults and 4 children, all comfortably catered for. The outdoor kitchen was a wonderful space to feed a large group such as ours and we loved the pizza oven! there was always a breeze even on the hottest days and the pool kept us cool, the view of Cefalu is spectacular! Only thing I can say against it is that - its so good you dont want to leave!
