Calanica Hotel

The Calanica Hotel is made up of tropical-style bungalows that overlook the Tyrrhenian Sea. The bungalows look like they’ve been plucked from a Caribbean paradise! The octagon-shaped rooms seem rustic from the outside, but they come with modern furnishings like mood lighting and wooden furniture.

There’s a private, exclusive feel to the hotel. The gardens are laced with winding trails that lead to a stunning sea-view restaurant and bar.

The pool is a rectangular number surrounded by loungers and over-sized parasols. Follow the zig-zag staircase down the hillside and you’ll come to a private pebbled beach with a wooden sundeck.

Overview of Cefalu

Cefalu may have Greek origins, but it’s distinctly Italian. Holidays to Sicily have become increasingly popular in recent decades, and the beautiful Cefalu is a big part of the reason why.

The city is of historic importance, so it’s great for history buffs. When you leave the tranquillity of the Calanica Hotel to explore, you’ll find culture galore, but it’s not all about history here – there’s plenty for shopaholics and foodies!

Things to do in Cefalu

The Calanica Hotel is a 20-minute walk away from the centre of Cefalu. The city has a colourful past that stretches back thousands of years. The main attraction is a Norman cathedral you can climb, but if you’re more interested in ancient history, head to La Rocca.

If the beach is your number one priority on a holiday, you’ll love Lungomare Beach, which stretches for more than five kilometres. Rental facilities line the front of the shore, so you can snorkel, kayak or even go whale watching.

Cefalu has so much to offer for the whole family. No matter what you like doing on holiday, you’ll find it here!

Resort Summary

Cefalu might have Greek origins, but this little town is distinctly Italian. Found on the northern coast of Sicily beside an unusually stocky mountain and the shores of the Tyrrhenian Sea, Cefalu is one of the biggest draws on this side of the island.

Scattered around town are ancient ruins, a Norman cathedral and a medieval wash house. You’ll also find plenty of shopping opportunities and amazing homemade Sicilian food – and that’s only the beginning of this Mediterranean haven.
