The Hotel La Plumeria is situated in Sicily in Cefalù, a splendid old town which was seat of a Greek trading post back in the 5th century B.C..The location of the hotel is a good one. Being close to the beach, Corso Ruggero divides Cefalù in two parts: to the east the famous Arabic-Normannic Cathedral and its mosaics – only 200 m away; to the west the Mandralisca Museum which houses a fascinatingl portrait of Antonello da Messina.
The fortress, in the back, offers a splendid view along the coast. For the lovers of nature the Madonie Reserve is characterized by rocks of the Triassic, most ancient in all of Sicily, gigantic holly trees and even firs close to exstinction, which hide hermitages and monastries and protect birds of prey and eagles. Only a bit more than half an hour away: Castelbuono, Collesano, Termini Imerese and Caccamo.
The townhouse that houses the Hotel La Plumeria is of late medieval origin and displays a very elegant facade, it overlooks the crossing of two streets with traditional Sicilian balconies with well-preserved railings. La Plumeria, name of a beautiful plant typical of Sicily, also known under the name of Pomelia, came into life thanks to Rosa Antonia Provenza through inspiration by Padre Carmelo. In 1999, desiring to install a new model of refined hospitality, she initiated a complex and professional restoration of the building with the help of her husband Pietro and experts. It was completed in 2010. The couple really designed each architectural detail and decoration of the house and enriched it with furniture owned by the family and traditional Sicilian ceramics. The care for detail, the welcoming and the kindness to the guests that is shown by all staff members are a value the owners combine with a profound love for the magic of Sicily in this place.

Between the common areas there are two courtyards, one typically Sicilian and prestigious, the other an internal garden with Mediterranian touch. The restaurant, which also opens for breakfast buffet, is rustic with its stone walls and Terracotta floorings.
