Incredible house with a beautiful outside area and pool

This charming Sicilian home , with breathtaking views , is located near the Madonie Park , very close to the small but nice village of Sant ' Ambrogio , and only 5km from the town of Cefalu . The house built in 2008 is close to the sea , and can be considered the perfect place for a quiet getaway in a typically Sicilian . The house is treated in detail , and each year is enriched by the owner with something new . From 2015 it also has a beautiful swimming pool located between the olive trees which enrich the outdoor space with a chic touch .

Inside: It consists of two bedrooms (one double bed, one with twin beds , so sleeping beds for 4 persons), kitchen - living room, 2 separate bathrooms both with shower . The rusticity of the stonework joins with modern amenities you would not miss at all.

Exterior: The outside space is the highlight of this charming home , landscape, garden, patio and the pool offer everything you need for a wonderful vacation . The house is perfectly equipped to take advantage of the outdoor space in the best way . The house has a fully fenced private access and private parking .

This was a delightful property built to remain fairly cool in the heat. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. We would definitely recommend it.

Simply the best!

  • 5 of 5

We, a family of four, have stayed in this lovely house for one week in July. We received a warm welcome from Salvatore who lives upstairs and is available whenever you might need him. He is a perfect host and will give you all the necessary support. The house was very clean and well equipped. From the many terraces that you will find round the house, the few is spectacular. A well-documented brochure about the area is available in the house. When traveling with two teenage daughters it is great to find a free Wifi connection available in the house too. There are many sights and beaches in the area and also Palermo is within a short distance. We would have loved to stay longer and will surely go back to visit Salvatore again.

"Fantastic place , hospitality owners, beautifull view for the see but without direct access to the beach. Nearby - small, familiar village with good, local restaurant."

"This was a wonderful stay! The owners - Salvatore and his daughter Margherita - were most helpful and friendly. A basket of oranges and lemons and a bottel of wine waited for us once we arrived. We enjoyed every day and the wonderful views."

Schön eingerichte Wohnung mit herrlicher Aussicht

  • 3 of 5

Die Aussicht und die geschmackvollen Einrichtung der Ferienwohnung

ist sehr schön. Bitte klären Sie es im Vorfeld ab wenn Sie unter Umständen die Heizung benötigen.Trotz Angabe der Heizung wurde sie trotz unserer Bitte nicht eingeschaltet. Da wir Anfang Mai kühles Wetter hatten, war die Wohnung sehr feucht und kühl. Die Betttwäsche war klamm. Man muss bedenken, dass es eine Keller-Wohnung mit wenig Licht und wenig Fenster ist. Im Sommer ist

sie bestens geeignet. Damit es für uns einigermassen erträglich war, mussten

wir für 50,00 EUR/Woche einen Heizlüfter ausleihen, den wir von Zimmer

zu Zimmer gestellt haben. Auf das Angebot der Benutzung der Klimanlage

für weitere 50,00 EUR/Woche haben wir dann Abstand genommen.

Schade drum, dass der Vermieter keine Einsicht auf diese Situation genommen hat.

From the expressway A20 go out at the jounction Castelbuono-Pollina and go on to Cefalù for 4kms, turn left at the road markings Sant'Ambrogio continue for 500m and than call.

The place is rich of attactives both cultural like, Cefalù, Monreale or Castelbuono but there are also many spots where you can spend a nice time with your frieds. For people who want to relax and spend time in the typical sicilian atmosphere, at only 500 m there is the village of S.Ambrogio, the best place to take part in a festival.
