About the neighborhood
The villa is nestled in the beautiful town of Sant’Ambrogio, just a 10 minutes drive from the bustling fishing port and popular tourist hotspot of Cefalu. Sant'Ambrogio is a charming Sicilian village, and perfect spot to enjoy some authentic Sicilian hospitality from the family run restaurants near the small piazza. A small beach is accessible via a stairway from the village and during high season is less crowded than the hugely popular beach in Cefalu. There is also a mini-market.
Getting around
A car will enable you to explore the surrounding area, but there are also three public buses per day, connecting Sant'Ambrogio to the nearby town of Cefalu.
