Our thanks to Girl About for including our lovely Casa dei Sogni in its round-up of October half-term holiday ideas. The sun’s still shining here in Sicily but for anyone who didn’t get away this summer, the idea of catching some last rays of sunshine when the kids are off in October is understandably appealing!
Casa dei Sogni is a great option for families. It’s just a short drive from Catania airport so getting there is quick and easy and, if you enjoy sightseeing, there’s plenty to see nearby. Take the kids to climb Europe’s largest most active volcano or head to glamorous Taormina for the shops, restaurants and memorable views.
Of course, that’s assuming you manage to tear yourselves away from the villa! If you’re looking for a week of relaxation and downtime, this five-bedroom holiday home is the place to be. While interiors are filled with striking art works and design features, you’re more likely to find the kids outside in the pool or stunning outdoor children’s playground, complete with slide, swing, climbing frame and trampoline.
