This website lists a hand-picked selection of unique and varied holiday lettings in Sicily, which offer the highest quality accomodation with additional services to enhance your holiday.
If you like being fully independent, we recommend hiring a car in Sicily. There is a vast selection of them at the airports. A rental car not only simplifies the journey to your booked apartment, but is the only way to reach a few of Sicily's nature reserves and most unusual attractions.
If you prefer the tranquility of a car-free holiday in Sicily, you will need an apartment near a train station. With coaches and Trenitalia, you can get almost anywhere in Sicily surprisingly easily.
Our selection of holiday lettings has a special section for car-free holidays in Sicily.

Some may also have booked a language course in addition to the apartment. The language schools next to our selected apartments usually offer cookery courses and sightseeing excursions as well as language lessons.
