  • Honeymoon rental

    "I have mixed feelings about this property. The apartment itself is wonderful. Charming and rather large (it was just my husband and me), it provided us everything we could have wanted. I enjoyed the ability to escape the rat race of Rome, and in August it was certainly much cooler in Ladispoli. The kitchen was very well equipped, however, we never did find wine glasses. They had to have been there and we most likely just missed them. The owners, Louise and Aldo, have everything you could possibly need for the beach. Towels, bags, chairs, umbrellas, etc. I was very concerned about the lack of A/C in August, however opening the doors to the balcony and window in the bathroom created a lovely cross breeze. Ladispoli itself is okay. This is no Amalfi coast or Cinque Terre, but there were a bunch of fun festivals going on when we were there. The people were super friendly and the dinner prices were far less than Rome. Stay away from the beach restaurants, though. Over priced and not worth it. The best meal we had in town was one we prepared ourselves with fresh pasta from around the corner. Now. The down side. There is an outdoor dance club directly across the street from the apartment. Since there is no A/C and the doors needed to be open, that meant my husband and I had to wait until the bar closed every night to go to sleep. On the weekend this was 3am, weeknights 2am. I didn't get a good night's sleep once while we were there. Also, the hot water stopped working Wednesday during our stay. We went three days with no hot water for showers. The super was very apologetic, but there was never an email from the owner apologizing or offering some type of compensation. (compensation wouldn't really have been necessary, but an apologetic email would have been nice) All in all, I would recommend this place, but not during the summer months when the club is obviously in full swing."

  • Perfect location and extraordinary views

    "This apartment is a jewel. The location on the Piazza del Duomo is central to everything. The view from the kitchen is breathtaking with the Duomo towering just over the balcony. Paolo, the local manager is extremely affable and is available to assist with many different aspects of a stay. For americans this also may be the only properly air conditioned space in Florence. The apartment was a great respite to cool off in and enjoy after a day of walking and enjoying the city."

Sicily Travel Tips

Discover Sicily Vacation Rentals

Sicily, Italy is one of the islands that the mainland owns. It is also one of the furthest islands from Italy in the Mediterranean Sea. As a large island, there are a number of destinations you may wish to visit from your Sicily vacation rentals. Depending on what you hope to see while on the island, you might want to stay in one of the bayfront Sicily accommodation homes rather than being more inland. Sicily has the distinction of being the world’s first “multicultural society.” It has historically always been a place for the mixture of different cultures, having been ruled by Asians, Europeans, and Africans throughout its history. If you want Sicily to touch you and your heart, do not wait to book Sicily villas for the summer months; travel anytime of year.

Travel Practicalities for Your Sicily Accommodation

Before you can book Sicily villas, you have to know where you want to stay. There are 12 top destinations on the Island of Sicily which you may wish to visit. Some of these destinations will provide you with white, sandy beaches, scuba diving, and sailing, while the others set you deep in the mountains. The top destinations include Aeolians, Taormina, Siracusa, Piazza Armerina, Palermo, Segesta, and the wine country of Sicily.

To arrive in Sicily, you have a couple of options. The mainland of Italy will offer cruises out to the island or you can fly directly to Sicily by using the Palermo or Catania airports. Both airports receive international passengers, though you will have to stop in Milan or Rome before flying to the island. The airports are generally small compared to most, but they do well to serve all travelers. Car rentals on the island are available if you wish to visit areas further from the cities. Public transportation like buses, trains, and taxis are also provided. Trains will depart daily from Palermo once every hour between 6 a.m. and midnight, making it easy to traipse around the island.

The Valley of the Temples Near Sicily Villas

Agrigento is known as the Valley of the Temples where you will find a nice Sicily accommodation. If you have a passion for archeology, this is the place you should head. Outside the town are olive groves and almond orchards. The orchards are celebrated by a February festival in which folklore is expressed. You can also experience several ancient Greek temples like the Temple of Concord. Agrigento is near Segesta which is also known for their Greek temples.

Mount Etna is Sicily’s Main Attraction

Whether you arrive in Sicily for the sandy beaches and watersports or for the mountain views, you cannot miss Mount Etna in the eastern section of the island. Mount Etna is perhaps the most important of all attractions in Sicily. Mount Etna stands at 10,922 feet and has the distinction of being the largest, active European volcano. The summit has mild eruptions each year but scientists state there is no imminent threat of it causing a major catastrophe. In 2008, there was a great deal of activity in the volcano which has since died down to limited eruptions in the past year.

Culinary Extravaganzas by Sicily Vacation Rentals

In Italy, food is almost an art form. Italians take their cuisine and wine very seriously which means you should take advantage of the local fare you might come upon. Your Sicily vacation rentals will have fully equipped kitchens, where you can try your hand at an Italian meal with fresh produce and seafood. However, you will still want to consider trying at least one local restaurant. Speak with a native of Sicily to find out where the best restaurants are located to avoid the more expensive tourist traps. By asking the locals, you should find even better food at a great price. Sicilian cheeses and wines from the wine region can be found nationwide.
