    “The next supermarket (Lidl) you drive 45 minutes, the sea rather longer. Depending on the time of day, there was still traffic jam (in October), we did not expect that. The landscape outside the property is constantly garbed, the streets are more than finished, the villages dirty. Sicily will certainly not see us again.”

    “The house is located in the countryside a bit off the actual place Francavilla. The approach to the house is a piece on narrow gravel roads, but you can easily reach the house and there is a private parking with gate. You definitely need a car on site. In Francavilla there is a well-stocked supermarket where you get everything you need. The place Francavilla itself is rather unspectacular. After Taormina and the sea you need about 30 minutes by car. But Francavilla is beautifully situated in the mountains and there are many nice little places in the area.”

This is how holiday rental owners described Francavilla di Sicilia

Francavilla is located in the center of the Alcantara valley. From here you can go on many beautiful daytrips. Very close to the house is the entrance to the natural path to the Gurne di Alcantara, a river with small lake basins. The Gole di Alcantara (impressive canyon with ice-cold ...

water) is also just a stone's throw away. If you prefer hiking, the Parco dell'Etna or the Riserva Naturale Orientata Bosco di Malabotta or the hinterland in direction of Novara di Sicilia are ideal places to spent time. All these places are reachable by car in short distance. For the wine lovers amongst you: The Strada del Vino (wine road) runs very close to the property and is lined with wineries. In addition to the tasting of excellent wines from such well-known vineyards as Firriato, Cottanera or Frank Cornellisen, you can also enjoy deliciuos local dishes and of course buy some bottles of wine for the holidays. If you need any recommendations for good restaurants, just contact us.
For a day on the beach you can go to the nearby (20km) Giardini Naxos or Letojanni or the famous Isola Bella, the most popular beach in the area. For sightseeing in the surrounding area, for example, we would recommend Taormina, the "pearl" of the Ionian coast. Here you can stroll along the corso, do some windowshopping and visit the ancient theater with breathtaking views. In the summer season it offers a great selection of concerts.
Castiglione, one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, is just 5km from the property. But also Randazzo (20km) is worth a trip, especially on Sundays. There is a weekly market with many great clothes, but also with good food.
Other good places to visit are a Catania, Syrakusa, Noto or the Lipari Islands . For mountain and vulcano lovers, a trip to the Etna is a must.

Just be inspired by the huge offer and look for your dream holiday home for your next vacation on Sicily.

Typical Sicily: Fuming volcanoes and the blue sea

In order to discover the diversity of Sicily you can rent a car and go on discovery tour by yourself or alternatively opt for a coach trip with tour guide. The volcano Mount Etna in the north of Sicily is with its frequent small eruptions Europe’s highest and most active volcano as well as the island’s most renowned sight. Furthermore it can even be ascended with experienced guides. An experience no holiday maker on Sicily should miss. Next to Mount Etna also Mount Stromboli carries its own fascination. The volcano is situated on the small same named island which is part of the Aeolian Islands and is permanently active. In irregular but short intervals there are smaller eruptions which offer a quite spectacular and breathtaking sight especially at dusk.

You can discover the sea not only from Sicily’s beaches relaxed during a great beach vacation but also in an active way on boat trips or diving. Off Sicily there are still some larger coral reefs and a large variety of fish that are at home in their original underwater habitat.

Discover Sicily's towns from a holiday home

On Sicily one can discover many lovely cities and small villages. Always worth a trip is the city Taormina, which can proudly look back on many famous visitors. Oscar Wilde, Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich and Cary Grant are just few of those who treasured the charm of this city with its many typical Sicilian restaurants and shopping options. The Villa del Casale, UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, with its beautiful mosaics and other impressive Roman ruins are popular cultural tourist attractions. Also worth a visit is the city Palermo with its cathedral and pretty squares and parks as well as the famous catacombs of the Capuchin monastery. Further interesting cities on Sicily with many tourist attractions include Catania, Messina, Ragusa, Trapani, Agrigento and Syrakus.

Sicily's culinary specialities

Sicily’s cuisine is as diverse as the island itself. The history of Sicily’s ice cream dates back to the Roman Age. According to tradition it was invented at the foot of Mount Etna when sweet beverages that came from Arabia to the island were mixed with the ice of the volcano’s peak. The result was a sweet delicacy. Respectively the range of ice cream creations which can be enjoyed in the hot summer climate of the island is delicious and diverse.

Also Sicilian pastries are known to be delicious. Great wines are grown on Sicily, as well as figs, tangerines, mulberries, peaches, apricots, melons and many more which can be bought fresh at the regional markets.

Enjoying the Mediterranean climate

The climate on Sicily is primarily mild and sunny. During winter the temperature seldom drops below zero degrees. The most popular tourist season is due to the often very hot and dry summer the springtime, especially April and May, and the late summer between September and the beginning of November. Usually the temperatures in the heartland are lower as the regions are at a higher altitude than the coastal areas.  

By plane to Sicily

You either travel by plane or with your car to your holiday home vacation on Sicily. International airports with regular flights are available to Palermo, Catania and Trapani. Whilst on the island it is recommended to hire a car in order to reach the holiday home easily and to explore the region. Alternatively most of the larger holiday resorts – especially those close to the sea – are usually quite well connected to public transport.

Journey with the car and ferry to to the holiday apartment on Sicily

Those who want to travel with their own car can either drive down to southern Italy in two to three days or shorten the journey by combining it with booking a passage on a ship. Those who drive the whole route will have to take the ferry in the south of Calabria from San Giovanni to Messina which connects the mainland with Sicily in just 30 minutes. Alternatively you could choose a night ferry instead of the long drive through Italy which runs from the north Italian port Livorno or Genoa to Palermo and Catania.
