Holiday house in San Vito Lo Capo, Sicilia, Italy for 6 persons
If beautiful beaches, atmospheric towns and acres of wine-producing countryside sound like the kind of ingredients that make up a dream holiday, you would do well to pay a visit to the western regions of Sicily. From ancient temples and ruins, standing testament to Sicily’s long past, to some of the best beaches in Italy, this part of the island offers some of the top sights and attractions that Sicily has to offer. Additionally, floating off the south-western shore, encircled by the glittering Mediterranean Sea, you will find the rustic Egadian Islands, notorious for their rugged beauty and tranquil surroundings as well as the exotic Pelagie Islands with their milky white beaches and world-class diving spots.

Whether it’s seaside, mountains or countryside that you are dreaming of when you book your flights to Sicily, you will find that the west and south west regions certainly won’t disappoint…
A stunning stretch of sand, lapped by turquoise water, San Vito Lo Capo is a beach-lover’s Caribbean dream. Laze on the golden shores, explore the coastline by boat, or hire a car and head off to the nearby Lo Zingaro Nature Reserve to trek, picnic and soak up the spectacular views.
Stay in the charming coastal town of Marsala for an experience that takes you right into the heart of Sicily’s wine country. Sample the delicious local wines and explore the historic streets with their captivating architecture.
Trapani is a harbour town and the gateway to the Egadian Island chain. Wander the winding medieval streets, eat fresh-off-the-boat seafood or hop in a cable car up into the clouds to walk the cobbled streets of Erice.
As well as a paradisal nature reserve and sugar-spun sands, a stay in Selinunte offers access to one of the top historical sites of Sicily. Explore the archaeological park with its crumbled temples and walk amongst the ruins of an ancient civilisation that evokes the island’s blood-spattered past of war and conquest.
After exhausting the delights of Sicily’s South-Western reaches, continue south to the beautiful Baroque towns, resplendent in honey-coloured stone that shines in the sun. Ragusa and Noto are two of the most famous, but nearby Modica offers traditional chocolate, guaranteed to make your mouth water. Alternatively, head along the northern coast where you can try sumptuous street food in bustling Palermo or enjoy a beach break of rest and relaxation in seaside town Cefalù.
