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

Omg a gem, a truly special place, one of which you don't often encounter, even as an avid traveler and AirBnB user. Francesco is a great host, kind, chatty and proud of his property that he as a architect has designed. Waking up, walking onto the terrace, medidating, then jumping into the sea, literally on your door step, getting wine and pastries from next door winery and bakery and then not moving from that private balcony for two days was truly blissful. If you want to have a special dinner, and don't mind dishing out some money go for a personal connection of Francescos, Cortile Pepe, a tasting menu sicilian food extravaganza. Ive had a more momorable meal there than many michelin star restaurants. If you are thinking about booking this house...dont think twice, just book before someone else does.

This a very special property because of the location. Its right on the beach and in the center of of town! There is beach access for those with normal mobility (might be hard for elderly). The back patio overlooking to ocean/cefalu harbor is excellent and we enjoyed our sunsets drinking wine! The Apartment is a studio which was very clean and comfortable for us as a couple and had basic amenities and a very cool historical feel with the ancient well inside. The entrance to the apartment is on one of the main pedestrian paths and can generate some noise. The apartment is surrounded by good restaurants and shops and the bakery next door had great pastries for breakfast and great bread. Francesco was a great host and a very friendly and nice person, responding quickly and meeting us and checking us in very smoothly and gave great restaurant recommendations.

I feel confident in saying there is no place like Francesco's! The space itself is straightforward, but very comfortable. The location is great, in the heart of Cefalu and steps away from the main beach and cute little harbor beach. You have direct sea access from the terrace, but walking is just as easy. Even though you are on street level, the place is super quiet. All that aside, this place is all about the terrace. AND IT SHOULD BE! I spent every moment I could on the roomy terrace gazing out onto the sea and stunning sunsets! I felt like the smartest person alive, that I did not have to pay big bucks for a mediocre dinner so I could enjoy a Cefalu sunset. The terrace alone makes this a must-stay, but Francesco is not resting on his laurels. He was a terrific host, responsive, very friendly, and providing thoughtful touches. Cannot recommend enough.
