Holiday in Sicily in August and we bet you eat every meal outside in a best luxury villas with pool in Sicily- but even if you are not getting away till September, the chances are that any indoor dining space you have will probably be barely touched. The fact is that dining under the stars, overlooking the still waters of a pool or the glimmering reflection of the moon in the sea, is one of the highlights of any holiday. Add to that a coastal view or the twinkling lights of a distant hilltop town and you have perfection. After much discussion and thought, we have come up with five of our top luxury villas in Sicily for alfresco dining.
Sea views at the Plemmirio Marine Reserve
The view from the seafront veranda at Villa Plemmirio may be interrupted by the odd palm tree but other than that, the only distraction from dinner will be the gentle sound of the lapping of the waves. After dinner, retreat to the swing chair and count the stars – the washing up can wait till the morning.
Hurry! There are still a couple of August and September weeks free at Villa Plemmirio, from £1966 (sleeps 6) per week.
Between Mount Etna and the sea
Situated amidst lush green vegetation on the lower slopes of Mount Etna, the terrace at Villa Cocuzzolo is in prime position for enjoying a glass of one of Etna’s finest wines, accompanied by a handful of locally-grown almonds and olives, while the barbecue heats up. Set on a small estate with a family-friendly garden, there are two additional properties for bigger groups.
Villa Cocuzzolo has several weeks free in August and September, from £1674 (sleeps 6) or from £4357 for all three villas (sleeps 18).
