Despite its small size, Cefalu in the Palermo region of Sicily is an extremely popular tourist attraction, boasting many holidaymakers’ necessities, such as beautiful beaches, historic monuments, buzzy but accommodating nightlife, gastronomic delights and spectacular landscapes. Cefalu manages to mix the remains of its medieval past with the modern shops, bars and restaurants of today, all squeezed between the rocky Sicilian peaks and long, sandy stretches of beach. The Arab-Norman architecture of the Cathedral of Cefalu, the remains of a Saracen castle and the Roman baths are just some of the main sights.
Renting holiday accommodation in Cefalu
When it comes to making the most of your holiday, and this means experiencing Cefalu and Sicily to its fullest, booking self-catering accommodation rather than a hotel or bed and breakfast is a wise choice. On top of saving money, you can create your own Sicilian feasts with ingredients bought from the local markets and delis, while you’re also able to wash your own clothes and do activities at your own pace. With HouseTrip, you can find a range of holiday accommodation in Cefalu to cater for you needs.
Where to stay in Cefalu
Do you fancy one more drink before heading to bed? How about nipping back for a quick nap or to get changed before dinner? In your downtown self-catering studio apartment getting home is no issue as everything is in close proximity. Although the centre of Cefalu is charming in many different ways, from its restaurants and bars to its beaches and craggy cliffs, many prefer being a little bit out of the mix. So, to truly relax and get into holiday mode, a place in the countryside or Cefalu suburbs might be more appealing. HouseTrip offers a growing range of Cefalu holiday accommodation, including central apartments, spacious farmhouses and villas complete with refreshing pools, and with extremely competitive pricing structures.
Cefalu with the family
Depending on the age of your family, there are a number of fun outdoorsy activities across Cefalu and further into Sicily, such as renting bikes, scooters or boats, hiking and mountain climbing. If you’re looking to culturally enrich your kids then how about a tip to the Museo Mandralisca, which features Greek ceramics and Arab pottery, along with Renaissance works from the likes of Antonello da Messina, while Cathedral of Cefalu offers an intriguing visit. The location of Cefalu benefits from the fact you can easily daytrip to neighbouring towns and cities, such as Bagheria and Palermo.
