About Mari Onorato


My name is Mari and I manage a bed and breakfast and a few self catering flats in Cefalu with my brother Francesco.

We are hosts since 2010; we hosted many people from all around the world and they really enjoyed very much staying at our properties.

We started in 2008, turning the house where we grew up in a cool bed & breakfast.

Now, in 2017, we are starting a new adventure: opening an Albergo Diffuso in Cefalù. An Albergo Diffuso (literally "scattered hotel") is a new kind of hotel that has a central reception with common area and several accommodations a few steps away from each other. The Albergo Diffuso combines the amazing services of hotel hospitality with a kind of stay that allows to experience the local culture and traditions.

Our apartments are now part of this new formula: you'll get amazing hotel services, keeping the privacy of a private accommodation.

We have a passion for hospitality, nicely decorated homes, featuring all comforts. Our flats are all located in the old town and we are constantly improving everything to make your stay as awesome as can be :)

So, you are welcome to enjoy a nice stay at our hotel anytime!

Thank you for checking our profile, we hope you'll spend a wonderful time here in Cefalu!

Not the best experience...

  • 3 of 5

No response to email the week before we arrived. Apartment occupied when we got there and much confusion. Mari and F sorted out another much smaller studio nearby and after some complaining organised a part-refund. These issues apart, this part of Cefalu is very noisy at night up to 4am. Would not stay in the area again.

Great location and beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for five nights in October. It is spacious. There are a number of steep stairs to reach the apartment which is on the Italian first floor. Note that you will need to purchase all paper and soap products and bring a dish towel. There is a washing machine and an outside line to hang clothes. The view is beautiful! The balcony is wonderful! The location is just perfect! There are so many restaurants in Cefalu to pick from and all are delicious. If you arrive in Cefalu from the train station, with luggage, do take a taxi for 15 Euro to the apartment as it is a long walk with luggage. Without luggage, not so bad. A day trip to Palermo from this location is very easy by train. The owner is very helpful by text. We never actually met her, but there was no need. She also arranged an early morning taxi for us to the train station. The internet also worked fine. We would highly recommend this one bedroom apartment for one person or a couple.

Nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

The description of the property provided a very accurate picture of the apartment. In fact, we found it to be bigger than we expected. We stayed there with two adults and found it to be perfect for us in terms of layout and size. It would also be suitable for couples with one or two children (if one only needs a cot). However, we would not recommend it for more than two adults because of the layout of the place. Overall we found the location very good. The view from the balcony is a beautiful as the pictures on the ad and the beach is very close (just at the end of the street). The apartment is walking distance from the train station which is very handy for excursions and arrival/departure. We did not have a car, and we were glad. It would be very difficult to leave a rental car anywhere near the apartment, I would imagine. Although we did not meet the owners, they responded very quickly to any requests we had by text message, which suited us fine. There only two things worthy of criticism. We like to cook and we found the kitchen equipment very basic and a little disappointing (i.e., no good kitchen knife, no matching lids for pots, only a very small chopping board, no kitchen towels). We also found that it was quite far to walk to the closest supermarket if you want to buy anything more than bread, fruit/vegetables, or wine. If we were to return to Cefalu in the future, we would rent the apartment again.
