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

The journey to Sicily holiday villas is easy as the island is well connected to Italian national and international travel routes. There are regular ferry services from the mainland and some flights do go directly to Sicily although many involve a transfer from Rome or Milan.

A simple, beautifully furnished, comfortable, well-equipped and clean apartment, with own entrance from the garden. We didn't cook this time, but there were good facilities for making a meal, and a table on the patio to enjoy breakfast in the morning sun. We had a warm smiling welcome from Carlo, who was on hand with advice and information as soon as we arrived. He gave us a quick orientation to Palermo and some top tips for what to see and where to eat (we ate at the very popular Bisso’s on both our evenings). The apartment was a lovely peaceful place to come back to after a day's sightseeing and at the end of an evening out. Carlo and Laura were very hospitable and generous in spending time with us and sharing about life in Sicily. All in all a fantastic start to our first visit to Sicily.

Nello was fantastic bringing fresh eggs and vegetables every morning for us from the chickens above, and even some of his own wine from Etna. The views are amazing from sitting outside the villa to the views from the pool. Felt so relaxed staying here. Nice and modern inside, everything we needed was provided. Thank You! Perfect Holiday. :)
