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…

Walking is a great way to explore Sicily’s countryside, and while there are some challenging hikes to choose from, you don’t need to be a fanatical hiker for the best experience. Take a short stroll in early summer when hillsides and nature reserves are sprinkled with the last remnants of spring flowers; or an autumn amble through flame-coloured landscapes. The two latest additions to our portfolio – Villa Rebecca and Casa Maoma – which are both near to two of Sicily’s most striking natural sites, got us thinking about our favourite walks in Sicily. Necropoli di Pantalica A walk through…

Regardless of your holiday budget, one of the best things about staying in a Sicilian villa rather than a hotel is the chance to really experience the destination.

Villa holidays in Sicily get snapped up quickly, often as soon as the Christmas rush is over, so if you are thinking of booking a villa, particularly during school holidays, the advice from specialist Wish Sicily is…
