A Guide to the Various Options for Accommodations in Sicily

Not only is Sicily renowned worldwide for its splendidly preserved archeological monuments, natural parks and classical historical heritage, but it is also special because of the wide and numerous options provided for tourist accommodations in special and diverse, traditional family-run establishments – and in all the best locations around Sicily, where you can explore the local folklore and traditions of its regions’ ancient cross-cultural past.

Whether you prefer a holiday rental at a villa on the beach or overlooking the coast, an Agriturismo Farmhouse, a chalet, Bed&Breakfast or beach resort, and depending on your holiday tastes (hiking/trekking, swimming, sunbathing, relaxing among orchard gardens/olive trees, visiting archeological sites and monuments) you will always find what you are looking for and there is always availability all year round. The best part is that your pockets will not suffer thanks to the great budget deals listed in top rated sites (Wishsicily).

Let’s look at Villa dei Nebrodi (7 bedrooms, 20 sleeps, 7 bathrooms): it has a large garden, a sea-front terrace and huge pool with hammocks, parasols, sunbeds, outdoor shower, and is situated on a cliff in the mountains of Nebrodi – which has one of the 4 spectacular UNESCO protected natural parks in Sicily- surrounded by nature and overlooking the coastline of Northern Sicily and the Aeolians. It accommodates 10-20 people at the price of E 340-680 X night (min 7 nights), breakfast included, with A/C, BBQ, lounge/dining areas, internet among its many services so hop on a plane with your friends and prepare for a low budget Mediterranean luxury holiday.
