Summer holidays are drawing to a close. However, for those who still have the wonderful prospect of a late summer break to look forward to, journalist Anna Selby has pulled out a few suggestions in her Telegraph article on how to holiday like an Italian, including a stay at our Sicily Luxury Villa Dionisio.

Yes, we certainly know how to holiday! Years of practice makes perfect and we’ve really turned the concept of ‘dolce far niente’ into an art form! Here, a summer holiday is all about leisurely sea dips, delicious meals with friends and family, and enjoying a simple evening passeggiata with a refreshing gelato.

At Villa Dionisio, all those simple pleasures go hand in hand with luxurious living. This stylish villa (sleeps 6-10) on Sicily’s north east coast is the ultimate in contemporary living with striking interiors and a magnificent panoramic terrace and infinity pool.
