Go for up-to-the-minute modern style this summer and splash out on a week of designer living under the Sicilian sun. Fortunately, there’s no need to spend crazy money to enjoy brilliant design features and impeccable taste. At Wish Sicily, we think it’s the tiny details and the ‘wow’ factor that count. So, no two villas in our stylish and contemporary villa collection are the same: while one might have striking modern art, another may be included for its state-of-the-art kitchen.  Nevertheless, when it comes to flair and sophistication, these villas are in a class of their own.

Ferragosto celebrations take place across the country, ranging from local village-based events to huge crowd-pulling occasions such as Siena’s Palio. In Sicily, most activities are focused around the beach, with some towns and villages also organising festivals, processions and fireworks. Not surprisingly, the celebrations spill out…
