If you’re desperate to feel the sun on your face and catch a whiff of sea air, get some inspiration from Prima magazine’s April issue in which travel editor Jane Anderson selects some of the best places to stay in special locations, all just a few hours away by plane.
The suggestions in the round-up of Great Getaways includes two Wish Sicily villas, both situated on the east coast of Sicily. For a truly away-from-it-all location, Terrazza sul Mare is a two-bedroom villa perched above the fishing village of Pozzillo where the sea is literally on your doorstep and the towns of Acireale and Catania are close by.
However, if you’re looking for a more lively vibe, Casa a Ortigia provides exactly that. The villa on the island of Ortigia, the historic centre of Syracuse, is packed with contemporary style and has a heavenly waterfront location, just a brief stroll from a seafront sunbathing platform. Enjoy eating al fresco at the nearby cafes and restaurants, and take to the narrow cobbled streets and alleyways to discover a multitude of architectural treasures right on your doorstep.
