Why choose Sicily?
The enchanting island of Sicily is one of the most alluring destinations the Mediterranean has to offer. A breath-taking landscape of dramatic mountain peaks stand out against shimmering sea vistas, providing the ultimate scenic backdrop for all manner of outdoor pursuits. Golden beaches and unspoilt nature reserves blend with traditional towns, mouth-watering cuisine and a historical heritage absorbed from the ancient cultures that have called this beautiful island home.
Culture and Heritage
The largest island in the Mediterranean, Sicily has bewitched travellers with its siren song since ancient times. In fact, the Greeks, Romans, Phoenicians and Carthaginians, just some of the great civilisations that have inhabited this enticing island, have left their mark on Sicily’s shores.
Archaeological highlights include the UNESCO world heritage site of Agrigento, also known as the Valley of the Temples, as well as the perfectly preserved, Roman mosaics of the Villa Romana del Casale.
Sicily is a haven for those who love to venture into the great outdoors with cycling tours, hiking and trekking opportunities in abundance.
Choose one of our villas to rent in Sicily beside the beguiling blue of the Mediterranean if swimming, snorkelling and sunbathing are activities that appeal to you.
Or, if you fancy taking a break from the coast, you can venture inland to the Cava Grande nature reserve, filled with fresh water ponds and waterfalls. The adventurous might prefer a guided trek to the crater of Mount Etna, the most active volcano in Europe, or slipping beneath the surface into the deep, blue sea and learning to dive.
Sicilian cuisine will delight foodies, boasting all the flavours and colours of the Mediterranean and an array of wines from local vineyards. Expect fresh fish and seafood specialities from the coastal regions with a variety of excellent cheeses, salami and sausages further inland.
Succulent tomatoes, mushrooms and aubergines feature heavily in the Sicilian kitchen and the influences of Greek, Italian and Spanish culinary culture are strongly apparent.
