Lying on the north-eastern side of the popular holiday island of Sicily, in south-west Italy, a holiday rental villa in Vigliatore makes for an ideal place to enjoy a relaxing break away, and to also explore this section of the island. The self catering accommodation in Vigliatore on offer is of the very highest standard, and will provide a home-away-from-home for a week, two weeks or even longer should you so desire.
Whatever your energy levels, there is an activity to suit you whilst on holiday in Vigliatore. Being so close to the beach, there are many things to do almost right on the doorstep. These include swimming in the warm waters, snorkelling, scuba diving, fishing, sunbathing and canoeing. If you would like a break from the beach, then perhaps cycling or horseback riding may appeal. If you are taking a vacation in a holiday rental villa in Vigliatore during the winter months, it is even possible to go skiing on Mount Etna.
With the use of a rental car, it is possible to explore much of Sicily, although it must be stressed that the island is bigger than you might think! Nearby, there are some spa baths which make a good way to relax and unwind, and there are several marinas where you can see yachts of various sizes. Inland, a visit to Mount Etna is almost obligatory, and a drive around Europe’s largest active volcano will lead to the discovery of many quaint towns, some of which have unique castles and fortifications. Sicily is also home to a number of vineyards and olive growers, and a visit to either or both of these is an interesting and educational experience.
Being situated on the coast, Vigliatore has good year-round weather. Even during the coolest months of December and January, the temperature rarely drops below 10 degrees Celsius during the day, and on some of the clearer days, a T-Shirt can be worn. The temperature warms up through the year leading up to the hottest months of July and August. The daytime temperature can be 30 degrees Celsius or more at its peak and at night rarely drops below 20 degrees. A sea breeze is most welcome at this time of year! Rainfall is fairly minimal throughout the year, which is a bonus for tourists.
