Vacation rentals in Sicily

Vacation rentals on the Sicilian coast

Along the entire Sicilian coast you will find spacious vacation rentals with room for four to eight people. A vacation rental directly on the beach of Noto offers an unrestricted view of the south coast. From a villa in Messina in northeastern Sicily, the view even reaches as far as the Italian mainland. Traditional villas protect from the heat with thick natural stone walls. Refrigeration is also provided by a pool and a covered terrace. Those arriving with two to four persons will find apartments with a harbour view in the numerous Sicilian coastal resorts.

Modern apartments with beach view

If you would like to spend your holidays in Palermo, the capital of Sicily, you have the choice: near the beach you will find a holiday apartment in modern apartment complexes. Most apartments have a balcony with a view over the coast. There is room for two to four people here. If you like it more luxurious, spacious villas await you in the province of Palermo. Antique furniture and terracottage tiled terraces spread typical Sicilian flair. At the same time, the houses are equipped with modern comfort, air conditioning, carport and WLAN access.

A Finca in the heartland

Off the coast, in the interior of Sicily, you can discover rustic farmhouses converted into holiday homes. Traditional Sicilian fincas at Caltanissetta, Canicattì and Enna are furnished in country house style, with unrendered masonry and wooden furniture. Comfort is provided by a fireplace, several bathrooms and internet access. Original country houses and farms can also be found in the east of the island, in the Catania region. Here you can also live in spacious chalets directly on the slopes of Mount Etna.

Holidays in Sicily

Location and orientation

The largest island in the Mediterranean

Sicily is at the same time the largest island of Italy and the Mediterranean Sea. Together with some offshore islands, the island forms the autonomous region of the same name. Sicily lies southwest of the tip of Italy's boots, separated from the mainland by the Strait of Messina, and once belonged to a land bridge between Europe and Africa. The capital of the island with almost 5 million inhabitants is Palermo.

In the shadow of the highest European volcano

Sicily has the approximate shape of a triangle. The Tyrrhenian Sea extends off the north coast, the Ionian Sea off the east coast, and the Strait of Sicily lies between the southwest coast and Africa. The north and east are characterised by cliffs, and mountain ranges run through the interior. The highest mountain of the island, the volcano Etna, rises on 3345 meters height. It is the highest active volcano in Europe.

The fact that I have seen Sicily is an indestructible treasure for my whole life. - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Sicily for beach holidaymakers

Sicily's coast stretches over a length of about 1500 kilometres. A vacation rental in the south of the island is ideal for a family-friendly beach holiday: Here the land drops flat and there are longer sandy beaches. Popular seaside resorts include Sampieri, the beach at Fontane Bianche near Syracuse and Scala die Turchi near Realmonte. In the north, the beach of Modello near Palermo or the beaches around Trapani attract bathers.

Sicily for golfers

Over the years, Sicily has become a popular destination for golfers. Professional 18-hole golf courses can be found, for example, around the capital Palermo. The Donnafugata Golf Club near Ragusa is the first golf club in Sicily to follow the international model. The Verdura golf course at Agrigento borders directly on the sea.

Sicily for winter sports enthusiasts

Sicily is not only an island of sunshine: on Etna as well as on Pizzo Carbonara in the Madonie mountain range there is snow until April. The Madonie ski area is easy to reach from Palermo. Skiers and winter sports enthusiasts will find two ski regions on Mount Etna: On the south side you go over the Talstaion Refugio Sapienza Sud at the Silvestri crater to the mountain station La Montagnola. On the north side, the road crosses the Piano Provenzana.

Top 5 travel tips

1. The capital Palermo

In the north, on Monte Pellegrino, in the bay called Conca d´Oro (Golden Shell), lies Sicily's capital Palermo. A stroll through the city leads to places of interest such as the Norman Palace, the church of Sant Giovanni degli Eremiti and the Teatro Massimo. The cathedral Maria Santissima Assunta from the 12th century is also one of the most important sights.

2nd Discover Greek Antiquity in Syracuse

The historic city of Syracuse - Siracusa in Sicilian - is still marked by its Greek past. Here, on the south-east coast of Sicily, you can visit the temple of Athena, built around 600 BC. Today it is surrounded by the Cathedral of Santa Maria delle Colonne. The archaeological park of Neapoli contains further evidence of Greek and Roman antiquity, such as an amphitheatre or the altar of Hieron.

3rd Baroque Architecture in Ragusa

The city of Ragusa, located in northeastern Sicily, is the capital of the province of the same name. The eastern district of Ragusa Ibla has retained its medieval character to this day. The Ragusa superiore district, on the other hand, was rebuilt after the earthquake of 1693 in the Baroque style. The Duomo San Giorgio is considered one of the showpieces of the Sicilian Baroque.

4 The Alcantara Nature Park

The river Alcantara rises on the south side of the Monti Nebrodi near Floresta and flows south of Taormina into the Ionian Sea. Since 2001, the landscape around the river has been protected by the Parco fluviale dell'Alcantara Natural Park. The course of the river has created deep gorges, which today are a popular destination for excursions.

5. Good cuisine in the heart of Sicily

Pizza and pasta - these are national dishes of Sicily. But how varied the Sicilian cuisine really is, you will get to know on a trip to the heart of the island. In the town of Enna, Restaurante Ariston serves regional dishes in an elegant setting. If you want to cook in the holiday apartment, stock up on regional specialities at the La Vucciria market in Palermo's old town.
