If you think that Sicily is just for honeymooning couples, think again. Alongside holidays in Malta, Montenegro and Greece, our Villa Cocuzzolo was included in The Sun’s round-up of best short-haul sunshine breaks, with or without the kids.

Etnaland is southern Italy’s largest theme park, with everything from rollercoaster and rapid rides to fabulous water park with slides and pools.
