Villa Mazzaforno

Mazzaforno is a sea front villa with direct access to the clear waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea. It is an ideal place for groups and families to enjoy a comfortable and luxury vacation.

Mazzaforno comprises a villa, located on top of a cliff and with its own access to the sea shore. The typical 60s white villa was recently completely restored and the original feeling of the house has been kept alive. Wonderful tiled floors, design furniture and lamps, white linens and comfortable sesting everywhere.

Situated on the Northern coast of Sicily, the house  enjoys breathtaking views over the Mediterranean Sea and the historical town of Cefalù, whose city centre, with its imposing Norman Cathedral, is only 5 km away. Cefalù was once a fishing village and it still boasts a picturesque small harbour. Palermo, the capital city of the island, is about 50 km away from the villa, while the beach and a wonderful nature reserve are literally on the doorstep.

Mazzaforno is surrounded by trees and scrub. The house amidst olive trees has the typical charm of a country retreat and is available to rent as villa together with the garden house, Le Cementine, which is as well a lovely place. The villa, on the other hand, is elegant and spacious, approximately 200 sqm, and has the most splendid views. it develops over two levels, with bedrooms on the first floor and a refined design. The building is painted white and stand out in the large garden, a haven of peace and relaxation. Leaning over the railings that run around the vast terrace, or sitting at the table or in one of the sun loungers arranged around its expanse, one can enjoy the most wonderful views, looking out over the sea and down to the Sicilian coastline. A living room that opens onto the terrace, the guests’ bathroom, the kitchen and the laundry room are located on the lower level of the villa. The walls are white, and precious Sicilian floor tiles create geometric patterns in the shades of grey. Mazzaforno is comfortable in winter too, with its underfloor heating and fireplace, and its guests could not be more conveniently located to discover the attractions and treasures of Cefalù and of the surrounding area.

Perfect hygiene: to ensure an exceptional level of hygiene in all our villas, we’ve worked with our owners to create a Covid-19 villa management protocol. Based on recommendations from the World Health Organisation, and in compliance with current Italian national law, this protocol goes above and beyond our usual rigorous cleaning standards.

Prior to arrival, your villa will have been fully sanitised, including all surfaces, objects, kitchen items, curtains, sofas, throws, pillows, toys, and in and around the pool. You are welcome to ask for a detailed list of the entire cleaning procedure we do after each departure and before welcoming new guests to the property.

The owner of this house has complied with the following standards:

  • To ensure the necessary information concerning social distancing and the use of masks is available to all guests
  • To guarantee availability of and accessibility to hand hygiene systems with hydro-alcoholic solutions and soaps in all inside areas of, and pertaining to, the villa
  • To guarantee cleaning and disinfection of all areas according to national authority guidelines. Further information is available on request

  • For air conditioning systems: to guarantee the air re-circulation function is switched off and, according to the manufacturer’s instructions, with the plant in off-mode, to clean the air filters of the heating/cooling plants that use heat pumps, fan coils and convectors, at the end of each stay
