Villa Charme lives up to its name for Neil Sowerby as he chills out near Cefalu Location, location, location. Some film scenes are so luminous you never forget them. Turn the corner onto Cefalù’s Porta Marina and it all comes flooding back almost 30 years on from Cinema Paradiso’s debut. Director Giuseppe Tornatore’s Oscar-winning homage to the power of moving pictures was shot in several places in the north of Sicily, but none etches on the mind like this stunning seaside resort.
