Property in Cefalu's old historical center with direct access to the town's long sandy beach. The property enjoys an unrivaled position for anyone looking to be in the center of it all while having the beach and sea as their backyard. The property is a former fisherman's cottage and had been lovingly restored to highlight the beauty of it's centuries-old brickwork vaulting and wood-beamed ceilings. The small apartment is spread over a ground floor and a tiny basement. The apartment, as its name suggests, really is a "nest at the sea." The main floor features an open-space living room and dining area with sea views through a french door leading to the terrace and the beach. The charming well equipped small kitchen is accessed to the right of the dining area through a brick archway. The double bedroom is located at the opposite end of the apartment built around stone rocks which protrude from the ground. The stylish good-sized bathroom features a large walk-in shower. At the entrance of the property, a narrow and rather steep staircase leads down to the basement, the oldest part of the property whose brick archways frame two single beds. Perfect for anyone who loves to be on the sea. The door from the dining area opens onto a small terrace with a dining table. A few steps lead down from here to Cefalu's famous beach. Please note that in July and August the beach can get crowded. The appearance of the beach changes as the sand is washed in and out by the sea, and so might be different than that seen in the photos.
Description of the Area
Situated on the northern coast of Sicily, about 70 km from Palermo, Cefalù is a town of about 15,000 inhabitants and one of the greatest seaside resorts in the province of Palermo. The town, which is part of the Madonie Park (Regional Nature Park, which includes fifteen municipalities in the province) is included in the club of the most beautiful villages of Italy, which means a unique combination of small Italian towns which are distinguished by artistic, cultural and historical interest and by the harmony of the urban livability and services to citizens. Built, probably at the end of the 5th century B.C., on a promontory dominated by an imposing rock, Cefalù took its name from the Greek Kefaloidion, whose meaning is bound with the characteristic shape of the rock that rises above it, like a head. Over the centuries the town was dominated by Greeks, Syracusians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and Normans. Traces of a pre-Hellenic settlement are the megalithic walls, which surrounds the current historical center, and the Temple of Diana, situated high on the rock, La Rocca. The Roman domination influenced the geometric and regulated urban layout, while traces of the Byzantine age (crenellated walls, barracks, storage tanks, churches and furnaces) are located on the rock where at that time inhabitants lived. The town however, is most famous for its medieval feel and monuments at the base of La Rocca.
