The Sicily region
Sicily has a massive amount of world-class art, ranging from Greek to Roman, Byzantine, Arab, Norman, French, and Spanish, and some of it enjoys the most astonishing setting, abandoned on a hillside or nestled into a deserted cove where you can come upon it so naturally that you almost think you've stepped into a time machine.
There is something very ancient about Sicily, more than in Rome or Ravenna or Pompeii, and the thing we like the most about it is its unpretentiousness, the matter of fact, day-to-day atmosphere that turns all this history into a landscape as natural as a prickly pear blooming alongside a country road. If you had discarded the idea of visiting this fascinating region up to now, we hope our stories and unique lodgings will provide some very good reasons to change your mind.
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, Segeste, 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 wintery 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 periods 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 house is located in the enchanting village of Sant'Ambrogio, 5kms from the picturesque old fishing town of Cefalú on Sicily's northern Mediterranean coastline. Sant'Ambrogio is a haven of tranquillity. The village 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 town's small piazza and experience the authentic Sicilian way of life.
From Sant'Ambrogio you can easily reach many of the region's most attractive areas including the beach (100 metres), the bustling city of Palermo (40 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. Or just relax and soak up the character of this lovely Sicilian village.

"Amazing view, amazing hosts!!!!"
Wow - what can I say? Maria & Jim, the owners of this beautiful property went above and beyond to make us feel just like family!! And the view is absolutely beautiful! My husband and I were traveling with my mother and the apartment was spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable. I can't say enough about this property and this town. Not only did the owners make us feel at home, but the people in this adorable town made us feel like family as well. We miss you, Maria & Jim!!!

A very relaxing and peaceful cottage. The owners are wonderful people, if you don't know any Italian before you go you will wish that you did just to be able to chat with them.
I gave 4* for comfort as the bed was quite hard. Although the cottage is very small and it's a bit like camping but with a hard roof as the dining area is outside and the kitchen is not connected to the inside of the cottage, it was one of the most relaxing holidays I have ever had. This was definitely the best holiday self-catering I have had.

"A piece of heaven"
Casa Sol Levante has a great view. It is also a very quiet place, which was a relief for us after a very active holiday on Sicily. From the little house (a bedroom, a bathroom and a tiny kitchen - what more do you need?) it only takes about ten minutes to get to the small beach. It is located in San Ambrogio, 7 kms from Cefalú. SAn Ambrogio is a very small village, but it DOES have a small shop and pizzeria.
The main attraction of this place is the view and the quiet.
