A beautiful location which was very peaceful and resulted in a relaxing holiday. There was a group of 7 of us (adults) and the layout of the villa allowed plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing.

An absolutely fabulous place to stay. There were 7 in our group and we all thoroughly enjoyed Villa Giovanni and Cefalu. The accommodation was great and the location is brilliant. Fantastic views.
Would recommend to anyone.

The property was beautiful - great location and view, pool, bedrooms with lovely antique furniture. It was especially nice that everyones room had a private bath and opened up onto the terrace. The glass enclosed living/dining area was a great gathering place for our family.
We did, however, have a couple of complaints: there are very steep stairs leading down to the villa, which are uneven and not well-lit. This was not mentioned in the property descriptions and caused us difficulty, especially for an elder family member who fell and had to be hospitalized. There was no internet (the owner said the previous renters had stolen the hub) and we had to wait until our last day there for him to replace the hub.
We enjoyed preparing family dinners, relaxing by the pool and visiting local sites. The place is beautiful and wed stay there again - but the villa is definitely not for anyone with impaired mobility.
