Sicily is Italy's largest island and endowed with stunning beaches, mountainous interior topography and an astonishing number of significant ancient architectural sites...

.... and two superb hotels to choose from. Verdura Golf & Spa Resort on the island's south west coast or the elegant Villa Sant Andrea, a secluded boutique hotel with its own private beach overlooking Mazarro Bay.

We also have a selection of gorgeous private residences available to rent (just a small selection featured below), with or without our healthy experts to look after you:

Sicily is blessed by year round sunshine, though the best time to visit is probably late Spring and early Autumn, unless you like your weather hot - in which case, July and August would be perfect for you.

After some 25 centuries of foreign domination, Sicilians are heir to an impressive cultural legacy, from the refined architecture of Magna Graecia to a beguiling, if contradictory, artistic fusion of Arab craftsmanship and Norman austerity. This complexity of culture is matched by a startling diversity of landscape that includes the smouldering Mt Etna and an aquamarine coastline with a sprinkling of neighbouring little islands.

Our featured resort on the island is Verdura Golf & Spa Resort, near the seaside town of  Sciacca, famous for its lovely views over the Mediterranean and for a medieval towncentre that contains several notable churches, castles and piazzas.

Other Italian destinations

Weather

Sicily is blessed by year round sunshine, though the best time to visit is probably late Spring and early Autumn, unless you like your weather hot - in which case, July and August would be perfect for you.  The coldest month is generally February when the day time temperature drops to around 13˚C - but that's still perfectly pleasant for a round of golf!

Getting here

Flying time from London to Palermo is just under 3 hours.

Verdura Golf and Spa Resort has its own helipad for guests wishing to arrive by helicopter.  Alternatively, Palermo airport is 133 km from the resort and the journey is approx 80 minutes by car.
