Sicilian villas with real character

Sicilian villas with real character

The beauty of a self-catered holiday is that you can work to your own timetable and enjoy your own private space. Plus, the right holiday home can often work out cheaper that splashing out on a fancy hotel. However, just because you are opting for self-catered accommodation, doesn’t mean you have to compromise on character. We offer a wide range of holiday homes that are simply bursting with personality, whether that’s in the form of a lovingly restored Sicilian farmhouse, a cosy apartment in a picturesque fishing village or a luxury villa, decked out in antique furniture for that real traditional Sicilian vibe!

If you want to walk into your villa in Sicily and feel that ‘wow’ factor, here are a couple of top options that still have availability for summer 2017…

Villa Oleandri

Located right above the sea next to the Zingaro Nature Reserve, Villa Oleandri can be found near the hamlet of Scopello with its famous Tonnara.

Villa Baglio Campofranco near Ragusa

If you're looking to house a larger family or group of friends on your summer 2017 Sicilian adventure, allow yourself to fall under the spell of Villa Baglio Campofranco, an elegant, five-bedroom property, situated near the baroque town of Ragusa in southern Sicily. This beautiful villa offers a dose of history to guests as, though it is newly built, it has been designed in the style of the Baglio (country manors) of Sicily and recovered from the ruins of an 18th century building.

From the moment you enter the postcard-perfect stone courtyard, prepare to be swept away by the charming surroundings. Fragrant jasmine bushes decorate the garden, along with olive, palm and carob trees; plus, budding cooks will delight in the herb garden that rests a short distance from the kitchen.
