Default Sedella Information

Does anyone have any inside knowledge on the small village of Sedella? The amenities - whether there is a ATM minibank, the bus service (which I believe runs twice daily). Any info greately appreciated!

Sorry - I googled it which I assume you have done so I didn't come back to you. The nearest bank is in a village a few kilos away. I "walked" around using Google Maps - looks nice

Yeah - already done the google root Walked round village with Google Maps too

Was sort of hoping someone had been there or lived near, as I am getting some mixed information on the bus service and some other things.

Looks a little remote - maybe not too many forum members know it?

Yes, its about 30-40 minutes inland, fairly close to Competa. Just a small tucked away village. I know a few Brits live there.

I´ve found some info online. Ah well, worth a try!
