My Dad and I enjoyed our stay in Speronella's villa. The first floor apartment was equipped with almost everything we needed (maybe a small folder of local sights and recommendations would improve the experience), and the private patio had magnificent views down to the coast on sunny days. Speronella and her husband respected our privacy, but were friendly, and we really appreciated that they went out of their way to meet us at a gas station to show us the complicated drive back to their villa, located on the way to Gratteri. The drive to/from Cefalu train station (where we parked most days) took us twenty minutes, and though the road has lots of twists and turns, it is manageable once you get used to it. However, were we to return, we would look to stay closer to Cefalu. We booked rural accommodation hoping for peace and quiet, and unfortunately the five dogs on the property (some downstairs with the owners and some in adjoining pens) made this very difficult. In fairness, this is not unique as the neighbouring properties all seemed to have dogs as well, but not being dog people, this just wasn't for us. In summary, a traditional property with great facilities and stunning scenery, but you'll need to be a fan of dogs.
