Guesthouse / Homestay with Italian host family

By ‘guesthouse’ we mean what is often called homestay or stay-with-family accommodation. But this doesn’t always mean “standard” Italian families. It sometimes happens that women who live alone have rooms available for people who come to Italy for an authentic Sicilian experience and who want to discover the real Cefalu from the inside.

Sometimes the host is a man (usually entrepreneurs) who like to open their homes to students. A very popular accommodation is the apartment of our friend Simone. It is within short distance of the school and only 100 meters away from the beautiful sandy beach. Near the apartment you find many bars, restaurants and shops.
