Hotel Alberi del Paradiso is in the hills overlooking the resort of Cefalù. It's around a 15-minute walk to the centre of town in a quiet neighbourhood. We love the peace and quiet you get here, especially in the lovely Mediterranean gardens. A free shuttle service runs back and forth to the centre making it easy for those that want to explore.
There's a heated outdoor pool with comfy loungers on an elegant decking area in the gardens and a private section on the town's sandy beach that can be reached by the free shuttle bus. For a truly relaxing experience though we recommend heading to the wellness centre where you'll find a sauna and steam room. Massages and treatments can be taken inside or under the century-old olive and carob trees.
The hotel's excellent Al Capone Restaurant serves traditional Mediterranean dishes that are locally sourced and in the summer months you can enjoy al fresco dinner on the terrace. Wash your meal down with one of over 100 award-winning Sicilian wines from the hotel's cellar.
Transfer time: approx. 1 hour 15 mins by private car from Palermo airport and 2 hours 45 mins from Catania airport.
