We choose San Ambrogio because we have had a busy year and wanted somewhere quiet and idilic away from the hustle and bustle of Cefalu which we had visited a couple of years ago.
San Ambrogio is a quaint and very quiet village, ten minutes from Cefalu, but more about that later.
The population of San Ambrogio is about 300 and Casa Nonno is a beautiful one bedroom on suite stone cottege, which has a upstairs sofa bed with a second shower-bathroom The house has all the mod cons. fully fitted kitchen, air conditioning throughout which includes a washing machine. The owners have spent time giving this house a modern feel without taking away any of the character from the outside terrace.
On our arrival we were told to go to Saro's bar where we met with Giuseppe, our caretaker, who showed us our house,two minutes from the bar. The externally seating at Saro's has spectacular views of the bay.
We had continental breakfast each morning at Saro's, which was a sight to behold.
Once we got our bearing we ate in the couple of restaurants in the village, one is a pizzeria and the other restaurant which has all local dishes is excellent and inexpensive.
We found Casa Nonno a good base to explore the area and go out for day trips the Madonie National Park, a thirty minute drive.
Cefalu is a beautiful bustling town with loads of nice restaurants, bars. During the day, the traffic and especially the parking can be a bit daunting, so we used to take a bus into the town.
While there is a beach below San Ambrogio which overlooks our cliff side village, we went a couple of times to the beach in Cefalu.
At the end of our stay, we were relaxed and felt we would return to Casa Nonno and the beautiful area of San Ambrogio.
Our thanks to Giuseppe,our caretaker, Saro's and the people of this lovely village.
We will return.
