Real Estate in Cefalu
Via Porto Salvo runs from Piazza Duomo, the site of Cefalù’s World Heritage Site Cathedral, to the idyllic beach that was made famous by the Oscar-winning movie Cinema Paradiso. In this picture-perfect location at the heart of the tourist paradise on Sicily’s north coast, Appartamento Porto Salvo is an amazing piece of real estate which will certainly not be on the market for long!
The two bedroom apartment occupies the second and third floors of a meticulously renovated old terraced building with roots dating back to the Norman era. If you have ever dreamt of buying seaside property in Sicily, there will be few better investments than this.
This seaside apartment in Cefalu begins in an open kitchen-living room. Elegantly refurbished under the supervision of a talented local architect, the materials mix ancient and contemporary.
The kitchenette is centered around a practical island, with all the worktops made from locally-sourced wood. Everything is fitted to a luxurious standard. Large French doors open to the south onto the large balcony. Also on this floor are an extremely comfortable double bedroom and a bathroom.
A wooden staircase leads up to a mezzanine floor where a second double bedroom connects to an en-suite bathroom. A final staircase leads to the roof terrace, which faces an internal courtyard and is a sun trap all day (and, in the fantastic Mediterranean climate, almost all year) long!
Cefalù, alongside perhaps only Taormina on the east coast of Sicily, has a good claim to be the most famous beach resort south of the Amalfi Coast. The fine sandy beach is 50 metres away from the front door, at the absolute most.
The downstairs property is owned by a lawyer who does not even live here most of the time, and next door is a beautiful church in the midst of restoration work – meaning the the apartment’s balcony is not overlooked by anyone.
This property has also been rented out as a holiday home, commanding fees of up to €190 per day, making it a superb investment as well as a beautiful home. We would love to offer our years of experience managing holiday homes to take care of these arrangements for you while you are out of the area.
