Perfect place to stay if you want to relax and enjoy privacy and fantastic views. I suggest a rental car so that you can visit the town and go to the beach and enjoy the old town and great food... it is at least a 15 minute drive down the mountain to reach the town. Hosts are phenomenal. First night's dinner (pasta, sauce, bread and bottled water) was provided as was coffee. Pictures cannot capture the beauty of this villa. Pool, gardens, antiques and lots of indoor and outdoor space . No dryer but there are clotheslines. Being on top of a mountain, it is cool so no need for A/C, even in July. Water not potable but you just buy some to drink and brush your teeth in town, and you can use the water to cook as long as it's boiled. Europeans! There are bidets. Classy.

This place is a dream. The pictures cant capture how perfect of a house this was. Our hosts could not have been more accommodating. This is a perfect example of why AirBnB is such a great service. We can't wait to come back.

A beautiful house and stunning garden nestled in the hills above Cefalu, with views over the rocca. Perfect for our large family group. Thanks for a wonderful stay and great communication before and during our visit. A house to return to again and again!

We had a great time at the Villa degli Artisti. This review is unusual for me, because I have never stayed in an airbnb-advertised place in which the 'host' turned out to be an agent (Andrea), and the real host a very helpful neighbour (Enzo). So I will review both. Review #1: Andrea (agent) has been extremely helpful and friendly. He gave us precise instructions for our rendezvous with a colleague of his who kindly escorted us to the villa. The Villa is 10kms out of Cefalu, in a fairly isolated and peaceful area. The view of the town (below) and sea is fabulous. The only issue we had with Andrea (which was resolved fairly promptly and amicably) was that as soon as we arrived at the Villa we were told that sheets and towels were not included and had to be paid (12 euros per person). This came as a surprise as we were never informed of this at the time of booking or before arriving there. The profile page does say that 'essentials' are not included. However, this villa is a top end accommodation, not a rustic beach house, as the price clearly indicates (roughly 310 euros per night). So it was rather odd to be asked to pay for heating and 'essentials' upon arrival. As I already mentioned, the issue was resolved amicably and we ended up paying for the heating (we knew about this charge beforehand) but not for the sheets and towels. The real problem here is that I use airbnb because I prefer to stay in private homes and to deal directly with their owners. Having an extra agent to deal with in this this instance (on top of paying for airbnb services) probably explains the steep cost of the house and the extra charges for heating and essentials. Too many cooks in the kitchen and too many slices of the cake. Question for airbnb: shouldn't hosts be ONLY the actual house owners rather than agents and third-party representatives? Review #2: Enzo (the real owner) lives next door to the house and proved to be extremely helpful and hospitable. He is an artist, carpenter, builder, and handy-man. His house reflects his eclectic taste. The house was very clean, had all that is generally needed for a comfortable stay. It's a perfect summer place, but less ideal for a winter stay. When we stayed there was very cold so we could not use the outdoor area. As a result, there wasn't really a lounge or sitting room where we could sit, read, and relax, apart from the kitchen. This is not a criticism, the house is just perfect for summer stays, just a bit less enjoyable in winter. Grazie Enzo.

Het is een super mooi en typisch Italiaanse woning. Van alle gemakken voorzien en een ontzettend gezellige tijd gehad. Het contact was zeer goed en elke minuut van onze vakantie kunnen genieten. Absoluut een aanrader!

Salve ragazzi, Ho soggiornato qui dal 01/08 al 08/08 di questa estate. La casa è veramente accogliente, bella e assolutamente attinente alle foto. Caratterizzata da dettagli dalla forte personalità che rispecchiano poi quella del proprietario. Il signor Enzo (il vero padrone di casa) è una persona squisita, disponibile e a modo che si cura dei suoi ospiti con il garbo e la dedizione di un vero albergatore. Chiedete a lui per qualsiasi informazione, luogo, calette e spiagge da visitare, saprà consigliarvi al meglio! Piccola pecca della casa è purtroppo la posizione; si trova a 20 min (di tornanti) dal centro in un luogo abbastanza isolato, che però è ben bilanciato dal comfort della casa e anche da un bel panorama. Discorso a parte per l'agenzia a cui purtroppo fa riferimento il buon signor Enzo: un "presunto" Andrea mai personalmente presentatosi non fornisce un gran servizio di raccolta informazioni e si è dimostrato una persona anche poco disponibile al dialogo e alle esigenze degli ospiti, avendomi ripetutamente ignorato sia in chat che al telefono. L'agenzia inoltre ha rifiutato di riconoscermi un rimborso (irrisorio) dei costi del servizio di €35 causa mancanza di uno degli ospiti , per motivi non ben precisati e assolutamente immotivati. Siamo stati poi accolti da un'assistente del signor Andrea per accompagnarci alla casa (vista la distanza); una ragazza poco disponibile, assolutamente non gentile e che non si è preoccupata neanche che tutte le macchine la seguissero fino all'abitazione (abbiamo dovuto raggiungerla tramite (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps; tra l'altro, bisogna precisare che la posizione sul sito assolutamente non è quella autentica). In conclusione, capisco che talvolta un'agenzia possa risultare necessaria e comoda, ma è un lavoro che richiede passione e dedizione che del tutto mancano a questa pessima agenzia. La casa è veramente bella, il signor Enzo una persona cordiale e disponibile spero possa cambiare agenzia oppure che possa occuparsene personalmente, perché veramente in gamba. Ve la consiglio per soggiornare in una abitazione confortevole e dall'estro intrigante degno di un artista come il signor Enzo; ma cercate di raggirare l'agenzia o quantomeno pretendete il servizio che vi spetta di diritto. Vi auguro buone vacanze
