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

Great property with an excellent location

5 of 5
We were delighted with our choice. The property is a five minute walk to a small fishing village and an excellent based for exploring the delights of eastern Sicily. We found the property to be well equipped and perfect for a couple. The aspect of the property provides sunshine until the afternoon and is then shaded and this, together with the property being air conditioned, was most welcome relief from the heat. The village provides a large choice of dining options as well as local bakers and grocers and there is a large supermarket around 10 minutes drive north of the village. The owners are charming, hospitable and helpful and added to our holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would happily return.

Wonderful holiday, very generous accommodation but does need air conditioning!

5 of 5
The apartment is superbly located a short walk from Syracuse Cathedral, all the restaurants & shops on the island of Ortigia plus a good range of small supermarkets practically next door. The large, superbly equipped apartment is on the second floor with an internal glass staircase to the 2nd bedroom & sunny terrace -though the staircase has only one handrail so possible not for the nervous or suitable for children. The main drawback is the lack of air conditioning; we were there in September with temperatures in the mid to high 80s and we had to use the fan all night in the bedroom.
