Where to Stay for a Family Vacation in Sicily?
For a family holiday to the legendary Island of Sicily, in Southern Italy, what you need is a friendly budget to satisfy all the needs of family members without compromising on quality or luxury. Finding a suitable resort or villa in the highest top-ranking holiday spot of the Mediterranean- while taking into consideration the various preferences of your spouse and children – is relatively easy; the only problem is choosing among the numerous beautiful locations in the mainland and the surrounding Archipelagos and minor islands.
But regardless of the location, you will always be able to discover the best that this major ancient Mediterranean historical center can offer because no matter where you turn, there are exotic sights and things to do in every corner.
The architectural wonders of ancient Greece and Rome, later Arabic/Spanish medieval influences and the artistic treasures of the Renaissance period offer a spectacular tour of the ancient past, while the sun-bathed beaches and archeological sites of the Agrigento Coast in the west, Taormina (East), Messina (Northeast) Cefalu’ (North), the Trapani coast (Northwest), Syracuse (Southeast) along with their protected natural reserves in the mountains of Madonie, Nebrodi, Etna, Segesta, and the surrounding Aegadians and Aeolian archipelagos are only some of the many location choices for a family vacation in Sicily.
Splendid villa homes with pool and garden like Villa Gisella (4 bedrooms, 8 sleeps, 2 bathrooms, E180-290 X night for 6-8 people, min 7 nights) immersed in the countryside between the mountains of Nebrodi and the northern coastline, with a wonderful view of the sea and multi-colored sunsets, is a great deal that fits the budget of big families with 2 or more kids or with grandparents at a fantastic price and is one of the many special offers at wishsicily.com. Excursions to the Rocche del Castro and gastronomical tours of the Nebrodi region (renowned for its celebrated cuisine) are some of the villa’s service highlights.
Villas by the beach are always a favorite at summertime, and one like Villa Conchiglia (pool, garden, patio, 2 beds, 4 sleeps, 1 bathroom, E 143 X night, min 3 nights stay) located by the bay of Castellammare del Golfo and right near the Segesta park and medieval town of Erice, will certainly do the job for families with 2 children.
