Hotel Alberi del Paradiso

Sicily, Cefalu

  • Traditional feel with relaxing pool area and gardens
  • A 15-minute downhill walk from the centre of Cefalù and the sandy beach

Located on the hills overlooking Cefalù and surrounded by wonderfully landscaped gardens, this welcoming hotel has an elegant yet traditional style that combines Mediterranean décor with North African Moorish touches. The Hotel Alberi del Paradiso’s immaculate guest rooms have been tastefully decorated using a neutral palette.

Tucked away on the edge of town in a tranquil residential spot, the hotel offers a range of facilities including an outdoor restaurant, a wellness centre (payable locally) and a sheltered car park. To the west of the hotel lies the Santa Lucia promontory and to the east, the majestic La Rocca that provides the dramatic backdrop to Cefalù and its twin-towered Norman Duomo.

About the location
Holidays in Cefalù give you a microcosm of the best of Italy. Whatever attracts you to Sicily, or even the beautiful country itself, you’ll find it in this coastal town whose character greatly overcomes its modest size. Whether you’re looking for modern metropolitan culture, to explore absorbing historical heritage or simply to settle in for long sun drenched days on luxurious beaches living the true la dolce vita, Cefalù has it all.

Situated on Sicily’s Tyrrhenian coast a short way east of Palermo and in the shade of the large headland La Rocca, Cefalù holidays offer something for families, couples and adventurers. From the imposingly grand Cathedral to the ancient Roman Baths there is no shortage of sightseeing opportunities, while families with younger children will love the long golden sandy beach. Couples will adore a leisurely romantic stroll through the cobblestone streets or walk to the top of La Rocca to take in an idyllic sunset before heading back into town and dinner at one of Cefalù’s many fine restaurants.
Transfer time
The hotel is 1 hour 30 minutes from Palermo airport. Return private transfers included. To change your transfers or book car hire instead, simply call us once you’ve completed your booking.
