This place takes some finding! The Google map we had enlarged before we left home was useless. The village of Sant Ambrogio is easy enough to find from the coast road if you keep a lookout for the signpost. In the village square we asked directions. You need to turn right in the square and about a km out of... More

Casa Saponara is located in a rural setting high above Cefalu. The rooms are standard, clean, and include an air conditioner which was appreciated in the summer heat. The breakfast was ample with good variety. A lot of people have commented on the drive up to Case Sapanara. We were not put off by the drive. It is paved all... More

Case Saponara is a nice B&B located on a mountainside near and above the small and lovely village of sant Ambrogio, a 15 minutes drive From Cefalu. Some reviewers here mentioned the uphill drive as a potential problem, but it was not something that every avarage driver cannot deal with. And the view is beatiful. You reach a small group... More

Stayed at Casa Saponara for only 1 night. It is in the mountains high above S. Ambrogio about 5km from Cefalu. It is a wonderful rural retreat with panaramic views across the mountains toward Cefalu. The room was delightful and nicely decorated. There is a roof terrace that guests can use to relax and appreciate the vista. The breakfast was... More

My husband, 14 year old son and I spent two nights at Case Saponara while touring Sicily. I found this B and B on Booking.com. for a cost of 80 euros per night including breakfast. We had two large private ensuite rooms on the second floor. The rooms were more than adequate in size, we each had a large armoire... More

We booked the case Saponara for three nights as part of a two week visit to Sicily. Although the access road was difficult I have been on worse and after touring many parts of Europe by car I do not expect a three lane highway to any hotel booking. By following Nino's directions we found the Case without any hardship.... More

Case Saponara in the Parco della Madonie, San Ambrogio area in the hills above Cefalu was certainly a surprise. We booked this B&B on BBPlanet.com where we made all our other reservations for our Sicily trip and based our expectations on the online description. Fortunately, we and the friends we were traveling with aren’t easily discouraged or we might have... More
