On the edge of the town, the sun-drenched Via dei Mulini winds its way up
among olive trees and orange groves, flanking the small stream that for centuries
has fed the water mills that dot the coast.
The entrance to the Hotel
Today, three of these water mills lie within the hotel's gardens..
Looking westwards from these cool Mediterranean gardens, located in the centre of the Gulf of Cefalù, you get a view of the Santa Lucia promontory with its crystal clear waters and cliffs that go red at sunset, while looking towards the east you can see the "Rocca", the symbol of the town which rises above the 12th century Norman Cathedral.
The Hotel's Mediterranean gardens with water mills, today a SPA
The buildings, which have been painted and built so as to integrate with the Sicilian landscape, recall the vernacular architecture and simple elements of the predominant styles of the island's history.
Hotel Alberi del Paradiso in Cefalù is one of the most prestigious Relais du Silence resorts in Italy.
