Make a holiday villa in Sicily your home away from home

Sicily is the largest of the Italian islands, a beguiling mix of fabulous beaches, ancient towns, archaeological sites, culinary traditions and charming fishing villages. Nature has bestowed it with intriguing rock forms, mountains, hills and crystal-clear waters. There is so much to explore, soak up and enjoy. Here, the Mediterranean is scattered with a number of small islands such as the Aeolians with their irresistible scenic beauty.

From the glorious beaches of Marzamemi to the volcanic sites on Stromboli and Vulcano, HomeAway has a large variety of holiday apartments in Sicily. These smart and fully furnished homes are equipped for parties of all sizes and are suitable for all budgets. Sicily holiday villas can also be enjoyed throughout the area. These spacious properties come with every modern convenience to ensure stays on Sicily live up to and surpass expectations. Many of these holiday homes have their own private swimming pools.

Things to do

-Beaches: Being an island Sicily has a plethora of gorgeous beaches that are gently baked by the Mediterranean sun for most of the year. Every kind of beach can be found on Sicily and its neighbouring islands, from stretches of fine powdery sand to black sand beaches such as those on Stromboli where where affordable holiday homes are also available.

-Historic monuments: Visitors with a holiday villa in Sicily will discover that the island is full of historic treasures: ancient churches and centuries-old piazzas; archaeological finds on Lipari and Greek temples at Syracuse.

-Outdoor pursuits: Sicily’s natural parks such as those of Etna and Madonie can be explored on foot, by mountain bike or on horseback. There are good walking opportunities on some of the islands off Sicily such as Vulcano and Lipari where holiday rentals can also be found. Mount Etna, one of the world’s most active volcanoes, offers skiing in the winter and hikes in the summer.

-Food: Sicilian passion comes alive in its food and fresh produce. These include the grapes of Canicattì, prickly pears, Pachino tomatoes and Sicilian pastries, made with almond paste and ricotta cheese. Among the many fine cheeses in Sicily are pecorino and ragusano. Marzamemi, where HomeAway has a selection of holiday homes, is known for its fish.

Weather in Sicily

Visitors can go to their holiday apartments in Sicily all year round as the island boasts a Mediterranean climate. The summers are hot and the winters are warm and rainy. The southeast regions are warmer and drier than those in the north. Higher areas are cooler and receive more rainfall.

Travel to Sicily

Our plane was delayed and we arrived late, so it was fantastic to arrive to find a feast of lovely cheese, meats, bread and wine. We also appreciated the tour of Caccamo the next morning and to be shown the best butcher and bread shop and restaurants. Caccamo is a small town; very Italian and very friendly. Palermo was great; we took the train from Termini as recommended by Anne and Doug which worked well. Dolce and Gabbana were staging their autumn show which added to the day. Another day we went to Segesta to see the temple and amphitheatre as we were taking one of our sons to the airport. Relaxing at the house was easy as it is very well equipped and really comfortable. The pool is lovely and you can choose sun or shade.We had not visited Sicily before and will definitely go again. Anne and Doug's lovely home is definitely a wonderful place to stay .

It is close to the sandy beaches of Fontane Bianche with a rocky beach a few minutes walk from the villa. The house is well equipped with 2 good sized bedrooms and one bathroom - the second shower is outside but when we were there in June it was fine to use. The garden is beautiful and there is a large shady terrace for guests with lots of seating both for relaxing and eating. There is a bbq with a gas hotplate, excellent for cooking meat or fish. The swimming pool is small but perfect for a quick dip after a hot day sightseeing with lovely views towards the sea. The 2 dogs and 2 cats are very well behaved and were no trouble. The villa is well placed to visit Syracusa, Ortygia and the Baroque towns of Noto, Scicli, Modica and Ragusa. The Cavagrande del Cassibile nearby is an amazing experience if you are reasonably fit! Alessandro and his wife were perfect hosts, very helpful and happy to give local information. Their 2 small children are delightful. I would recommend this villa.
