were here, I saw these beautiful ceramic lamps. I figured I would see them in another town and didn’t really pay attention, but none of the other towns we went to had them. This time, I hunted down these lamps which I found at A Lumera http://www.alumeracefalu.it/EN/Azienda.aspx The website doesn’t show the lamps, but they are more Arabic (Saracen) in origin and in the back of the shop are some very interesting modern pieces.
We also had a fun time comparing and contrasting Aranchini around the town. These tasty rice balls are so filling and can be so different everywhere you go! Our two favorites were from Antica foccaceria for their quality rice covering & Pizzica for their ragu filling. It’s a fun way to spend a couple of days!!
Blue Bay Hotel Via Vincenzo Cavallaro 18, 90015, Cefalu, Sicily Italy This was our second trip to Cefalu and first to Blue Bay. We will be back. Cefalu is a delightful town and fun to stroll through. We are happy to get lost in the streets. This time, however, there were LOTS of other people doing that too. We were thrilled to stroll into town along the waterfront through the Port and even more thrilled to come back to the blissful oasis that awaited. Because Blue Bay is eastern facing, the heat of the day does not overwhelm. The fresh breeze keeps each spacious apartment nicely cool.
Another benefit that we did not see at any other hotel was the private beach accessible for young and old alike. Lounge in a chair? Great! Lounge in a water chair? Even better! Kayak, paddle boat or snorkel? Knock yourself out in a serene and secluded setting where you can stroll into and out of the water close to the hotel and without needing a ladder.
As mentioned, the staff are tremendously kind and helpful. The breakfast is extensive. The ability to have our car easily accessible on site was helpful too!
