Description from owner


This three bedroom villa is situated in Sant'Ambrogio, near Cefalu on the northern coast of Sicily. With a private swimming pool, sundeck and spectacular panoramic sea views, this is a truly breathtaking holiday location. The mature gardens, packed with palm trees, offer you a private and secluded setting for you to enjoy the warm climate of this enchanting Mediterranean isle. Sant'Ambrogio is a charming and authentic Sicilian village and two excellent family restaurants are only a few minutes' walk away. For party sizes of 7-10 people Villa Mara can be combined with Casa Nonno (1146503) which is located just 200metres away. Enquire for specially discounted prices when renting both properties.

Further details indoors

This spacious villa consists of three bedrooms, two double rooms (one of which can be converted into a twin room if required) and one twin bedroom. On the top floor is one double and one twin room, both with access to a large terrace, and the latter with an en suite toilet. On the ground floor is an additional bedroom (double or twin), family bathroom, utility room and kitchen leading to a large dining terrace with uninterrupted sea views. Steps from the balcony lead down to a large living room with panoramic views over the pool area, gardens and out to sea beyond. Individual air-conditioning units keep the villa refreshingly cool in the summer months and provide heating during the winter season.

Further details outdoors

Outside the villa is surrounded by mature palms and gardens planted and lovingly tended by the owners. The tastefully installed swimming pool and wooden deck provides the perfect place to soak up the Sicilian sun whilst watching the small fishing boats meander along the shoreline below. A short walk down through the palm filled terraces brings you out onto a private rock with unrivalled sea views and a bench to sit relax and listen to the waves against the rocks below.

Beautiful villa with breathtaking views! Never tired from hearing the lapping waves . Various terrace levels of the accommodation provided wonderful areas to eat, sunbathe and generally relax. Antonio was always available to sort any problems such as the shutter cord mishap!! Locals very friendly with three nearby restaurants, our favourite being Trattoria Sant’Ambrogio . The fortnight went far too fast! Grazie mille

We have just returned from a fabulous holiday in scenic Sant Ambrogio. The villa was amazing, set in a quiet location which was just what we needed. A well earned restful and peaceful week.

“Perfect from start to finish”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2018

Just returned from a long weekend break at Villa Mara, what a wonderful place, the views from the villa are nothing short of spectacular, the village is beautiful quaint, friendly and has everything you could possibly need. Couldn't have asked for more.... only perhaps a longer stay :) Contact with the owner was great from the outset. Rachel helped us book a return trip to and from the Airport from a local from the village, including a little stop at a supermarket to pick up some supplies.... only to find when we got there a beautiful welcome hamper of bread, cheese, water, wine fruit, biscuits, which was greatly appreciated and extremely generous. once we arrived at the Villa we were greeted by Antonio, who provided us with all the information we needed about the Villa, Village beach etc, he also took us into Cefalu one evening and picked us up. A real gem of a place not a single complaint, cant wait to return.
