Covering captivating small hotels, pensioni, auberges, inns and guest houses

Our selection of places to stay in Sicily has always been interesting, perhaps because it is the largest and most populated of all the Mediterranean islands, and because of its history: occupied since ancient times by invader after invader, including the Normans, it is truly polyglot.

Here you will find spectacular scenery, ancient Greek ruins, medieval towns, baroque architecture and even an active volcano. Its balmy climate means the season runs from Easter to October. Taormina is the main resort.

As elsewhere, our selection of places to stay in Sicily offers an exceptionally interesting range to choose from: pensioni, alberghi, restaurants-with-rooms and small hotels. Whichever, they all have the special qualities of hand-picked character and charm we seek out. Among our longstanding favourites are: Castello di San Marco and Villa Ducale.
