The “Terrazza del Pozzo” is located in the historical centre of Cefalù, in the street Vittorio Emanuele, a few steps from the Cathedral. The name chosen, is given by the presence of two ancient water wells dug in the rock of “lumachella” (the stone characteristic of Cefalù), where in past centuries it was still possible to draw water. The first water well located inside, while the second is located outside on the Terrace with an old iron flywheel, deteriorated by the saltiness of the sea over the centuries.

The oldest history of Cefalù is present in Terrace in warping of large stone of megalithic blocks of “lumachella” that formed the walls of the ancient city, preserved masterfully and today foundations of buildings walls built above them over the centuries.
This premise is necessary to understand the uniqueness of this place, a “loft”, only for the achievement of the restoration works carried out, both for the important presence of his Terrace, containing clear signs of history, but likewise is herself part of the story. Read more

We loved our winter stay at Francesco’s home. It’s perfectly located in the middle of town, walking distance to bakery, coffee, wine, cheese and meat shops. We brought food home and spent plenty of time on the beautiful porch overlooking the ocean. Francesco was very helpful with check in and providing us with local tips. Excellent stay!

Communication with Francesco was excellent from the start. He met me at the train station and guided me to the apartment. It is much more spacious than I expected and it has many thoughtful and creative touches in the design that are truly unique. The location is absolutely perfect for exploring Cefalu. The terrace view cannot be beat. I enjoyed 4 days in the apartment with the door wide open listening to the sea and cannot wait to come back. Thanks, Francesco for your warm hospitality and sharing your love for Cefalu with me.

Francesco was amazing! He arranged our pick up from the airport and met us to walk us to his beautiful place on the sea. The views were glorious, the house was located perfectly in the hustle of it all but yet was quiet once you were tucked away behind closed doors! Our arrival was late so it was extra special for Francesco to leave for us light eats and a bottle of red! Communication with Francesco was prompt and friendly! I would not only recommend staying here to anyone thinking about Cefalu but I will be returning myself!

Francesco’s place is amazing. Incredible views of the ocean on one side, with the streets of Cefalu’s historic district on the other. Kind locals, great food and a wine. Will definitely stay here again when we take our next trip to Cefalu!

Outstanding. Unique. Close to everything: dining, gelato, wine and a bakery right next door, fresh pastry in morning and a fruit cart at front door at 11:00 yelling their fare. Sun set almost as good as vancouver island. Cefalu!

Dear Francesco, we can't express how lucky we are to found this place! It is amazing.. no photo can show how wonderful Terrazza is, so stylish, perfectly clean and easy! Definitely the best place in Cefalú or in whole Italy... or world! You can't even dream of a better place to stay, sea by one side and old town by another. Thank you so much for hospitality and your recommendations, we enjoyed every moment of our stay. Wishing you all the best! Hope to come back some day..

Thank you Francesco, for the use of this lovely apartment. The outlook was what were hoping for plus more. We thoroughly enjoyed our two swims each day and to be able to scramble up to the apartment made it even more exciting! The position is perfect loved the fruit and vegetable seller calling out his wares from his small truck each morning and our few supplies from his. Enjoyed the walk up La Rocca well worth the effort! Hopefully we can meet again. Ciao!
