Here in Sicily, our long, hot sunny days stretch well into September, and beyond. So just when most people are heading back from their summer breaks, a holiday in Sicily right at the end of August looks infinitely appealing. If you are restricted by school holidays, you can still squeeze in a week over the August Bank Holiday and make sure that everyone returns to school and work re-energised and raring to go! Alternatively, we have excellent availability at some of our top villas throughout September.
To help you choose, we have picked out a selection of our most popular villas, all ideal for a late August break.
