Who we are

Wish Sicily is the No.1 “book-direct-with-owners” website for holiday villas in Sicily

Gioacchino Sortino

Our aim is simple: to provide the biggest collection of quality villas in Sicily at the best possible price. We do this by connecting owners and managers of high quality properties in Sicily with holidaymakers, thus eliminating tour operator fees and enabling holidaymakers to book direct.

Save time by finding all the best Sicily villas on one easy-to-use site. Our constantly-expanding collection of properties really does include something for everyone, from beachfront cottages and city centre apartments to exclusive designer-inspired villas. What matters to us is that holidaymakers are offered quality and value for money regardless of whether the accommodation is a modest family holiday home or a super-chic seafront villa.

Thanks to our strong relationship with our villa owners and managers, we offer extremely competitive prices throughout the year. Look out for the Best Price Guarantee logo which verifies that a holiday booked through us at that villa will not be available at a lower rate elsewhere.

WHO ARE WE? Wish Sicily was established by Gioacchino Sortino who lives in Sicily and has been involved in tourism and Sicily’s rapidly growing and increasingly sophisticated villa rental sector since 2006. Gioacchino is backed by a team of specialists who have extensive knowledge of the properties listed and, from the company base in Palermo, are a wealth of information on flights and getting around the island and bursting with local insider tips on what to see and visit.

VILLA OWNERS: We provide extensive support and advice to villa owners and managers on renting your property to ensure that the holiday booking experience runs smoothly for both owners and holidaymakers.
