“Peaceful spot with stunning sea views”
Reviewed 19 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Villa Mara is well equipped and comfortable, situated in St Amborosio which is a friendly village close to Cefalu. It boasts the fantastic Osteria Baccus which is a must when staying here. We were met by Antonio who was really helpful and considerate, ferrying bags up and down the hill and ensuring we knew where everything was and where the best places to visit were located.

The house is located in St Amborosio a nice and peaceful place close to Cefalu. The view over the sea is great and the children loved the pool although the water was rather cold. We always loved to take a warm shower under banana trees (outdoor shower).
The first day we arrived late and we were glad that Antonio, who took care of the house, organised food and wine for our first dinner on the terrasse.
The beach, which is close by approx. 200 stairs, is a great place for snorkeling.

“A home away from the hustle”

Six friends wanted to have a quiet rustic holiday and booked this beautiful village villa with all amenities including a private swimming pool, five minutes away from the square in the sleepy village.

So much to see in around Cefalu or further afield or laze around the pool.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed 27 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Back from another fantastic visit at Villa Mara, turning into an annual event! The pool is fantastic and the house very comfortable. Agree with previous note about the lack of good knives in the kitchen, otherwise very happy – and the views can’t be beaten!

Drinks in the main piazza is very nice, but if you want to eat in the restaurant, bear in mind that it gets busy.

I would recommend a car – we went to Cefalu for most of our grocery shopping and bought smaller items and water in the local store.

Antonio was great as always, and very helpful when my luggage was delayed. Can highly recommend this Villa!
