We can ABSOLUTELY recommend this apartment. It’s located in the well equipped city Capo D’Orlando. Supermarkets and small shops for vegetables, meat, cheese, local products and so on is just around the corner (300 meters). You can reach the city center in 10 minutes by foot. Here you will find cafes, a lot of shops for clothes, bags etc. and even a shop where they have English book titles. The beach is 300 meters from the apartment and you can make beautiful walks along the promenade and reach the neighboring cities.
The large apartment is clean with two bathrooms and a wonderful huge terrace. There is sun all day but you can also find shadow under the two umbrellas. Here you can enjoy your meals at the dinner table or relax in the couches.
Sara (Paulos mother) is with no doubt the best host we have ever met. First of all she made our arrival easy by picking us up in car at the train station and introduced us to the shops in the neighborhood. But this was just the beginning - within our two week stay she helped us with car rental, shopping and recipes for the Sicilian kitchen, taking us to the hairdresser, telling where to go in the area around, playing with our kid and cooked us an inspiring and delicious meal (and gave us all the leftovers). Sara indeed understands the balance between privacy and being and helpful host. But at least let Sara introduce you to the delicious pizza place in the parallel street or the cafe in the center who serves the best granite with cream. Perfect for the hot days.
The train station is 5 minutes walk from the apartment and with train you can reach Cefalu or Messina within 1 hour while you enjoy the amazing coastline.
Paolo was not in Capo D’Orlando during our stay, but he responded immediately on our messages and was very helpful.
Thanks for all
