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.

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.

Gianfranco was waiting for us when we arrived and responded promptly to all communications prior to our arrival. We could not fault the property in any way. It was furnished to a high standard and very comfortable. The views from the terrace were amazing. It is a bit of a climb back up from Taormina centre but well worth it. Alternatively you can get a taxi which were always available. We would definitely choose this property again.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      The flat is located in an area with local character but also good facilities including on street no cost parking. It is 30 mins by foot from the Norman Palace, ten from the sea or the Botanical garden, and twenty minutes from the tourist attractions to the western side of the town centre. There is a bakery and general store at five minutes east, the Carrefour ten minuters west and an excellent Pizza restaurant Arte e Tradizioni just around the corner. The terrace provides an ideal place, along with the seaside and the Botanical Garden, to take time out from the relentlessly urban character of Palermo. Francesca was out of town, arranging for a friend to meet us. Both ladies however checked in from time to time by text so we felt very well supported throughout. The flat is unusual in that it feels lived in, as if one is a family guest. Strongly recommended.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      The house is absolutely beautifully furnished, sparkly clean and amazingly well equipped. And the huge garden, with its almond and pomegranate trees, is peaceful and beautiful. Emanuele, the owner, is fantastically generous - there were wine, olives and loads of provisions waiting for us when we arrived. I have never experienced such genuinely helpful hosts - both Emanuele and his wife were lovely, warm people. They went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. While we were there, there was a cat that had obviously adopted the house as home - very sweet but it was a struggle to stop it coming inside and keeping us company at mealtimes (so if you're allergic it's worth checking with the owners whether the cat is a permanent fixture). The house is not within easy walking distance of the centre of Avola or any restaurants, cafes or bars, so a car is essential (very quick to drive to Avola or Noto). Noto is amazing. A stunning place with great cafes and restaurants. We also found a great beach - Marianelli, in the Vendicari Nature Reserve - which has a fantastic bar/restaurant/cafe nearby (by the parking). We sometimes took taxis in the evenings to Avola or Noto for dinner. Salvadore, the taxi driver, is highly recommended. Fares are a bit higher than you might expect though. I would thoroughly recommend this house for a peaceful holiday with lots of fab places to visit within easy (motoring) striking distance.
