The Sicily region
Sicily has been the golden heart of the Mediterranean from early time, many people invaded the island from Phoenician to Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, and Spanish... leaving behind monuments and treasures to remind us of the past.
The diversity can be seen in the different areas: the Island of Morzia - one of the oldest Phonecian settlements, Segesta, Selinunte, Valley of the Temples in Agrigento and Siracusa with its major Greek influence. In Palermo we have the perfect example of the Norman period with the Monreale cathedral. In the centre one of the most important villas during the Roman period is Roman Casale at Piazza Amerina.
In January, in the deep midwinter the average temperatures on the coast should still be hovering around the 10 deg.C . By February – March the days are starting to get warmer, although conditions in the mountains are still very wintry but along the coast winter is truly over.
April: the wild flowers begin to truly explode all over Sicily and on the coast the first bathers start taking to the waters. The interior is spectacular, with the mountain slopes exploding in colour and the temperatures ideal for walking. By May the temperatures on the coast and in the islands will now be extremely comfortable.
June the first feel of summer by July the sea is the focus of the majority of tourist, the temperature is perfectly, at times quite hot.
August is the hottest month, Italian holiday time, people go the coast which become quite crowded.
September: Temperatures remain very comfortable everywhere, and the coast and islands retain that summer feeling, but without the crowds. October is the most beautiful period for country walking. Seasonal rainfalls help develop an astonishing variety of mushrooms.
The highest rainfall is generally in the month of November though the big storms that often sweep the Italian peninsula. In December the temperatures are around 10°C still have extremely agreeable temperatures during the days, though the sunlight hours are clearly at their lowest of the year.
The apartment is located on the Plaia degli Uccelli, Sant'Ambrogio's beach, 5km from the picturesque old fishing town of Cefalú on Sicily’s northern Mediterranean coastline. The enchanting village of Sant’Ambrogio is 1 km far from the accommodation and is a haven of tranquillity. It has all you need for everyday life and offers the best of the region’s mountains, sea and culture. Enjoy eating at the family run restaurants in the small piazza and experience the authentic Sicilian way of life.
From the accommodation you can easily reach many of the region’s most attractive areas including the bustling city of Palermo (50 minutes by car), the spectacular Aeolian Islands (2 hours by boat) and the Park of the Madonie Mountains. You can explore the ancient fortresses or enjoy a show in the open air amphitheatre in the authentic hill top village of Pollina 700m above sea level.
