It’s that time of year again, that pivotal moment in the annual calendar when so many of us turn our thoughts to holidays and travel. Maybe it’s the short days and cold temperatures but there’s no denying that planning and booking a holiday is probably the most effective way to get through January and February.

For those looking for ideas for a family holiday, the Telegraph’s 50 best family holidays round-up is packed with inspiration. Organised into a selection of ideas for each main school holiday, you’ll find plenty of suggestions for the February, May and October 2024 half term breaks, as well as Easter, summer and Christmas.

The month of May is a wonderful time to visit Sicily and we were thrilled to be included in the article as one of the suggestions for Whitsun half term. At the end of May, days are pleasantly warm here as temperatures start to rise, roadside verges are sprinkled with wild flowers and beaches are blissfully quiet. The Telegraph recommends a stay at our fabulous Le Case di Tindari estate, where you can choose from a cluster of farmhouses and cottages that sleep from 2 to 7 guests – or fill the whole estate yourselves! Highlights include the breathtaking views from the infinity pool across the sea to the Sanctuary of Tindari, as well as the stunning contemporary interiors in each cottage.
