local customs, and connected to each other by narrow stairways ("scalinatelle"),
that are the pedestrian alleys of the burg. It is approximately 50 meters (55
yards) from the road where cars are allowed.

recently restored with great care. There are two large bedrooms with a double
bed, two bathrooms with shower, a roomy living room with a sofa, television, and
dining table, and a comfortable kitchen.

the color of the emerald. In the summer time the beach is serviced by buses that

From Villa Sara you will be able to take splendid hikes in front of a
breathtaking landscape, if climbing steps gives you no troubles. For example,

that will take you from the village to the Saracen tower by the sea, and from
there walk for 400 meters (440 yards) along a charming downhill pedestrian
alley, cut into the cliff sheer above the sea, that will take you to the beach.

to the village by bus after their day at the beach.
