A wonderful little piece of Paradise
If you are looking for peace and quiet, great weather and privacy then look no further. Add in the incredible view of the mountains and coastline whilst sat on a hillside in a private and secure olive grove. Just perfect with fabulous sunsets.
The local shops and beautiful beach are both within a 5 - 10 drive (car essential) and larger towns are approximately 30 minutes away following the coastline in either direction.
The property has all the necessary essentials and the air conditioning is extremely efficient. It was very hot during our visit so it was much appreciated as was the large Jacuzzi.
Alvise is very helpful and met us in the local town at the end of our drive from the airport to take us to the cottage. He is available for any questions and extremely kind and respectful of privacy. The journey from the airport is almost one straight road all the way to the cottage and back and takes about 75 minutes.
The cottage provides a useful guidebook and maps and it seems Sicily offers plenty to see dependant on how adventurous the individual chooses to be. We chose to spend our time relaxing around the Jacuzzi, eating the wonderful fresh local produce, swimming in the warm sea and only venturing to two of the nearest larger towns for a wonder around. The trips to Mount Etna seem to run on Tuesdays so you would need to book if you don't want to make the drive.
Just a couple of things to remember - Sicily is a follower of the Mediterranean siesta culture, there is very little open or happening between 1.30 and 5pm locally so bear this in mind for restaurant bookings and shopping, although we believe the larger towns and supermarkets seem to remain open, and would also recommend bringing bottled water for your arrival especially during the hotter months.
We would thoroughly recommend Alvise's cottage to anyone and would very happily return if ever possible and would like to thank Alvise for his delightful and very thoughtful hospitality. Sicily is a truly beautiful place, so as a previous review mentioned - Don't hesitate - just book it!
Thank you S.
you have used wonderful words for my cottage and for Sicily.
Thank you again and see you soon
Beautiful comfortable little cottage in the middle of an olive grove with all you could need. So peaceful and beautiful but still close to amenities for all you could want . Bit cold for the pool in April but in the summer would be absolutely beautiful watching the sun set over the sea and the distant mountains. Perfect for families with young children or a quiet get away. Alvise was very welcoming and obliging. A great host! Really recommend Lascari beach, about 5km away, as a hidden gem out of season. Thankyou for a wonderful stay !!
Grazie E. per la tua ottima recensione e per le gentili parole nei miei confronti. Spero poter rivedere te e la tua famiglia nei prossimi anni.
Superbe host and house
This is about 10 minutes outside of town ( 20 minutes from Cefalu) in the middle of an olive grove. It was exactly what I was looking for, overlooking the ocean with the mountains on the other side. It was extremely quiet and peaceful. The host was attentive but very respectful of privacy. I would recommend it for anyone that wished to be in the country side but still close to a town.
Grazie per l'ottima recensione , spero tanto di poterla rivedere in Sicilia nei prossimi mesi o anni .
Ideal base for a peacful and/or site seeing holiday
Nice cottage, peaceful location, good views & sunsets. Easy access to Cefalu, Palermo (especially by train), surrounding mountains & villages
We have just arrived back after a week at Campofelice. This was our honeymoon. It was perfect for the two of us. It is a very special place - very peaceful, romantic and nicely furnished and equipped - it has everything you would want. The weather was very hot so we spent most of our time outside on the shaded dining area which was perfect again and of course, the Jacuzzi. We won't forget bathing while watching the sun set over the sea.
Alvise was very helpful and polite and his English is much better than he says ! He was very welcoming and we are very grateful to him for allowing us to stay at Campofelice. If you are not sure about booking this place, disregard your doubts and do it !
Thank you Simon , for your kindly words .
I am happy you enjoied your holidays and i hope you'll return in our sunshine Sicily .
Thank you and see you soon,
We stayed in this property for 9 days in September 2015 for our wedding anniversary. We do travel a lot and this house was one of our favourite. So quite and piecefull and the privacy, just what we needed! Most of the evenings were spent outside with lovely views and a pool. Definitely recommended and great value for money. Easy to commute to the beach. Little mountain gem, def will be back
Thank you Justina , for your lovely words for my house.
I hope you enjoied your holidays and our small piece of Sicily.
See you soon !
