#25 of 42 hotels in Cefalu
A dream holiday in one of the most celebrated and fascinating places in Cefalu. Eight suites where you can live the atmosphere of a noble Sicilian house with all its perfumes and flavours. The colourful explosion of the interior decoration contrasts with the period furniture creating a charming elegant mixture. Wide windows and balconies look directly on the main square (Piazza Duomo), spectacular terraces open on the adjacent picturesque alleys. From the spacious solarium-terrace you have a wonderful view of the Cathedral, its towers, the blue sea, the Eolian Islands and the impressive mountain "The Rocca" dominating Cefalu.

It seems most of the better hotels in Cefalu are located for beach access, this is a fantastic option to stay right in the Duomo square with wonderful views of the piazza. Friendly and accommodating staff who speak excellent English. We parked at Dafne and they supplied a discount coupon after we asked for it. A 10-15 minute walk to the apartment from there. We had "Ruggero" a 3 room apartment, beautiful high ceilings, nicely decorated and furnished, with balconies overlooking the piazza. Beds comfortable (large double in separate room, double sofa bed, and single folding bed). Wifi excellent. Kitchen was well-supplied, excellent Lavazza coffee maker. Bathroom was clean, with the usual small shower. For our family of four, they had graciously set up a folding single bed for us, at our request. The beach and grocery stores are maybe 5-10 min walk. We were kindly allowed to leave our luggage while we did more sightseeing the next morning. Only negative about the room, the balcony doors are not sound insulated at all, luckily the noise died down around midnight. The rooftop terrace had nice views but was too hot to spend more than a few minutes on a very hot day (no shade). The door to the terrace could be marked with a small sign. We would gladly return.

We took a group here in May for our Yoga and Walking Holiday and everything exceeded our expectations! The apartments are very spacious (and very well equipped) affording us the space to eat brunch together as a group. We taught our yoga classes on the exclusive rooftop terrace which has the most stunning views! Emanuela and Niko, her brother, couldn't have been more charming and welcoming. We highly recommend Palazzo Maria and have already booked 2 trips back in 2020! Ciao!

Palazzo Maria is an excellent place in beautiful Cefalu. We were welcomed very warm and friendly by Emanuela and Nikolai - thank you so much! They provided us many useful information including map of Cefalu. We had stylish lovely apartment on the second floor. It had living room, bedroom, kitchen and balcony with a view to mountain Rocca. The apartment was very clean and smelled nice. In the bathroom a set of cosmetics and towels was arranged everyday. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything needed - according to description. In the bedroom there was exceptionally comfortable bed and pillows. Stylish furniture was smelling sun and Sicily... We also had exit to enormous terrace on the roof with a view to Piazza del Duomo, Cathedral, old city, sea and mountain Rocca. Something amazing! The view was outstandingly beautiful during sunset. Trip to mountain Rocca with amazing views! Cefalu and old city is one of the most beautiful places on Sicily... We highly recommend stay in Pallazo Maria, at Emanuela and Nikolai - excellent choice!

The apartment is in one of the beautiful old buildings right on the square in Cefalù. Location is excellent. Our apartment did not have a view onto the piazza but there is a great shared roof terrace. The views from the terrace are great and there are nice sun lounger chairs so you can sit there in the sun. The apartment was quite old fashioned but nice and very clean. Definitely recommend a stay here.
