Andrea was an excellent host! The property was beyond our expectations; we relaxed in high style -
We loved staying at this house; the design of the house is thoughtful and visionary. The grounds are perfumed with jasmine and the view of the sea set a really wonderful tone. We would love to come back!
A family vacation villa
A wonderful place to stay for a large family
Pleasant house, beautifully located, with a wonderfull undisturbed view of the sea.
Lovely and restful vacation at Villa Cecilia
We very much enjoyed out stay at Villa Cecilia. The house and setting are very beautiful, it is well equipped and a real plus is that it is designed in such a way that there are many different and private spaces so you can have some time alone should you choose to do so, without sacrificing comfort or view. The nearby towns and beach are interesting and charming and they provide everything you might need in terms of basic services. I would stress that this is a place to go if you are not looking for a lot to do, but if you want to kick back by the pool, play at the beach and make an adventure of shopping for supplies, wandering through labyrinthine cobblestone streets with amazing views everywhere you look, this place is perfect.
Our one frustration is that the house didn’t come with any information. We were met by two charming women – we think perhaps one of them was, in fact, Cecilia – but they didn’t speak any English so even though they ran around and showed us how most things worked, we weren’t able to ask questions and we only understood bits and pieces. We had to figure everything out on our own which wasn’t horrible, but other rentals have provided info like the closest grocer, recommended restaurants and how to deal with the trash and recycling, to name a few examples. The owner, who we made all the arrangements with, does speak English, but we never met him and he deferred everything to one of the women.
Overall, we would recommend Villa Cecelia. The views, the setting, the house, the nearby beach all make up for any communication lapses.
Hello Jeff, I, Giovanni, am not the owner. I'm not that lucky to own the beautiful property of Serena and Marina's to whom I'm friend since our childhood. I'm just helping them to do the English correspondence. I can understand though that sometime can be frustrating not speaking the local languages but as you said the beauty that surround the villa and the place where it is located makes all the rest, easy to stand! Thank you again, Giovanni
A wonderful house
We absolutely loved our stay in this gorgeous house. A wonderful setting, stunning views to the sea. Architecturally inspiring. Very well equipped. Thank you. We hope to return soon.
Stunning architectural villa
We were unfortunate to say the least, 5 friends and I, set off for a week of sun and relaxation in Sicily. The former only popping out for two of the 7 days but the villa was a charming retreat from the prevailing rain.
Photos can't capture the architectural brilliance that this house exudes. The living room, dinner room and kitchen form the start of a journey around the central courtyard, which finishes with the private bedrooms at the back of the house. Truly charming and enjoyable to live in.
The outside spaces all with their unique characters meant we drifted round the house following the sun throughout the day. Lovely barbecue and outdoor kitchen which we would of used more if it wasn't for the weather. Two nights we spent huddled round the log fire in doors to keep warm!
I would honestly recommend this villa to most if not all people. We were 6 people in our late 20s but I think it would work really well for families too. The more private bedroom and living room downstairs means that you can get a bit of peace and quiet from the rest of your group.
And whatever you do, do not forget to have a shower outdoors over looking the sea!

The north flank of the Madonie, a few kilometers from Cefalù, is one of the most beautiful areas of Sicily. The sea views are breathtaking, the flora and fauna pristine, the villages and villages full of charm and history. Pollina and Castelbuono, the two closest villages, are good examples of this. Castelbuono, as well as for the fascinating castle from which it takes its name, is well known for its peculiar mountain cuisine where mushrooms, cooked in every possible way, are great protagonists and for the famous pastry of the Fiasconaro family. Among the many restaurants, Nangalarruni is our favorite. At the top of the mountain, Pollina is a typical Sicilian medieval village with a breathtaking view! The Pollina beach (Rais Gerbi), which is only a 10-minute drive from Villa Cecilia, is well-equipped in the summer, while out of the peak season it is relatively deserted and more enjoyable.
