If you're looking for good and nearby access to the beach, this is the place. It's literally 150 meters to the waters edge. This town is not as touristy as others and we felt we were with the locals (which we enjoyed). Our Italian language skills were minimal but everyone we encountered was nice as we communicated. As a previous reviewer said, there are some good restaurants within walking distance. We happened to stay over a weekend and one of the restaurants featured karaoke on a Friday night. The place was full and lively. If you're going to Sicily for the sight seeing, this place is about 2 hours from Palermo and about 2 hours from Catania. Cefalu is about 1 hour away. Driving to the Valley of the Temples is a little less than a 3 hour drive. The villa was comfortable and is actually like a duplex with a large shared patio. Each unit has a kitchen. This worked out perfectly for us as our friends stayed in one half and we stayed in the other and we each had our own privacy. Overall, we enjoyed our stay as we were looking to relax at this point in our vacation here. I would suggest to Graziella to invest in a conventional coffee pot (for the Americans). However, we made do with the small one. One of the kitchens had no supplies while the other was fully stocked. We moved a few things back and forth between kitchens to equalize things out. Although the description says there is a pool, there is not. Graziella let us know immediately after booking that they were trying to obtain the permits for a pool in time for our visit. We didn't see any evidence of a pool being started, but we didn't care since the beach was so close. Overall, we enjoyed our visit and Graziella was very nice and waited for us upon our very late arrival. We enjoyed the canolies!
