Villa in Favignana with private pool for 8 persons
As if Sicily wasn’t a dream holiday destination all on its own, you can add to an already memorable visit with a trip to one of the enchanting minor islands that float in the seas off-shore. First up, we have the Aeolian Island group, an archipelago of seven islands situated in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the north-eastern coast.
Renowned for their volcanic activity, dramatic landscapes and crystalline waters, the natural treasures of these islands have earned the chain a coveted spot on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
Over to the west of Sicily, you will find a trio of rugged, rustic islands known as the Egadian Islands. Here, you can explore prehistoric caves, bathe in the refreshing sea, and relax into the slower pace of traditional Sicilian life.
Finally, we have Pantelleria and the Pelagie Islands of Ustica, Lampedusa and Linosa. These islands are located far out to sea, off the south-western shore. This remote island group is situated in between Sicily and the North African coast and offers a variety of destinations for sun-worshippers seeking white, paradise beaches and dazzling turquoise waters. Additionally, the exceptional variety of marine life thriving in these waters offers a unique underwater experience that will satisfy divers of all abilities.
Our portfolio of Sicilian villas and holiday apartments has been hand-picked by our expert team. We have chosen high quality accommodation with unique features and amenities to suit a range of requirements. So, whether
you are looking for a holiday home which can house a
large group, a family or a cosy apartment for two, we are confident we can offer you a property that suits your needs and budget.
We offer a small selection of properties located on Sicily’s minor islands as well as a larger pick of holiday homes on the mainland that are within easy reach of the island groups. Choose from a luxury pool villa perched on the sleepy Egadian Island of Favignana or live like a local choosing an accommodation on the shores of Salina in the Aeolian islands. Whichever island you choose, you can expect glorious sea views and natural beauty galore as well as the opportunity to experience an authentically Sicilian way of life.
The largest of the Egadian Islands, Favignana’s vivid waters glitter in jewel-toned hues, inviting swimmers, divers and snorkelers to take a dip. Explore the bays and grottoes of the coast as well as the charming main town and relax in peaceful surroundings.
A favourite amongst visitors, here you can admire the lush, green peaks of the landscape as well as the azure waters. With attractions that include a beautiful nature reserve, delicious Malvasia wine and a smouldering landscape of volcanic craters and rocky coastline, it won’t be long before you fall under Salina’s spell.
From the Aeolian Islands, take a trip to the picturesque seaside town of Cefalù in Sicily’s north, or discover the 14 kilometres of sandy beaches along the coast near Capo d’Orlando. The Egadian Islands make an excellent excursion from the vibrant harbour town of Trapani. Stay here awhile to take the cable car up to the misty mountain town of Erice or travel south to sample the wines of Marsala or famous seafood of Mazara del Vallo. And last, but not least, explore the ancient relics near Agrigento and Selinunte after a visit to Pantelleria and the Pelagie Islands.
