Enchantment in Sicilian holiday lettings

Swims beneath pastel-painted towns and visions of mystical Greek temples, tastes of buffalo mozzarella and Moorish-infused rice, medleys of age-stained Baroque churches and shell-covered beaches, all shrouded by the indomitable peak of Etna. That's Sicily for you – an island of such wonders and experiences you're likely to never want to leave. Sicily holiday rentals make matters even more enticing, what with their sparkling pools and perches over the Med, rustic farmhouse looks or palm-shaded gardens. From electric Catania to historic Trapani, there are countless places to pick from.

Things to do

Places to go near holiday lettings in Sicily

Sicily has long stood at a crossroads of Europe. Greek colonists and Roman emperors have all passed through, imbuing the place with a truly fascinating past and all the relics that go with it. Just take the awesome 3rd-century BC theatre at Taormina, which cascades beautifully down the mountains above the Med. Then there are the haunting Capuchin Catacombs of Palermo, or the off-beat Mafioso exhibits in Corleone. More ancient treasures await those who seek out Sicily holiday rentals in Agrigento – that's the gateway to the Valley of Temples, home to some of the best-preserved remains of the Greek world.

Activities

What to do near holiday homes in Sicily

Familiar with Sicilian cuisine? Offerings of milky buffalo mozzarella and herb-packed arancini balls, tasty cannolo pastries and simple peasant pastas all combine to create a sub-category of the Italian kitchen that's hard to resist. Cooking classes can help you get to grips with the ins and outs of the ingredients, while street food tours in towns like Catania and Syracuse mean eating through Sicily like a local. And then there are the wines – head to the hillside vineyards to taste full-bodied dry whites and roses made unique by the volcanic soils.

Weather

Local weather during your stay in Sicilian holiday homes

Sicily's southerly position off the tip of the Boot of Italy means it gets some of the longest and hottest summers in the country. That's good news if you're coming for Sicily holiday rentals with a pool or proximity to the sea – you can expect hot weather from as early as May, lasting as late as September. Winter trips between November and March mean catching the island in an altogether different light, with snow atop Etna and more local vibes dominating in the cities.

Natural features

From summits to sands in Sicily

Mount Etna heralds Sicily from afar. Its hulking outline and smoke-belching calderas top out at a cloud-piercing 3,392 metres. Snow gathers along its ridges in the winter, while the peaks of the Peloritani Mountains that frame it turn verdant green with cork and oak forests come the summer months. The volcano casts a long shadow across the coast, which hits highlights with the gorgeous resorts of Cefalu and San Vito Lo Capo in the north, the rock-ribbed inlets of Scopello and the long sands of Fontane Bianche in the east.
