Private villas within luxury hotels have been the scenery for many of our itineraries over the years.
Needless to say, they are now becoming a favourite way of travel as they ensure you gather with your group of friends and family in own private space.
From one-bedroom villas to spacious stays for families and groups and from villas with self-catering facilities to small pool villas for two, you’ll combine the benefits of hotel service and access to fantastic facilities with the intimacy of your own villa.
COULD THIS BE YOUR WEEK AT VERDURA PRIVATE VILLAS?
Perfectly combining private luxury with the extensive facilities at Verdura Resort, your fabulous villa features 3 or 4 bedrooms and makes the perfect home for family reunions and a memorable Sicilian holidays with your friends.
After landing in Palermo you’ll be picked up by our driver and travel south to Verdura Resort. An 80-minute drive through the countryside to the opposite coast facing Africa, to leave it all behind!
Get an exclusive in-villa check in and linger by the infinity pool and the pergola-shaded terrace. Enjoy an alfresco aperitif and a star-lit dinner on the ground-floor terrace – we can arrange a private chef and groceries delivered to your villa – or stroll down to the resort and explore its superb dining options.
Wake up in the privacy of your secluded villa, nestled in Sicily’s idyllic hills surrounded by 230 hectares of olive groves and postcard-perfect coastline.
Today make the most of your access to a wealth of activities on your doorstep, indulgent spa treatments, golf lessons, kids club and a private stretch of white-sand beach.
This evening go out to soak up the atmosphere of the nearby villages and dine at our favorite restaurant in the area serving fresh fish caught by local fishermen.
Hard to choose whether to stay or go out and explore. In medio stat virtus, the ancients would say. Indulge in long, lazy days and give yourself a few hours or a couple of days for unforgettable experiences.
So, having had two restorative days, you are ready for a memorable helicopter ride to Mount Etna. Your pilot will give you some great insights about the highest active volcano in Europe (10,902ft) as you take in unique views of the craters, the lush pine forests and the moon-like black lava deserts. Land in the private field of a premium winery to taste Etna wines which are considered today among the finest and most unique in Italy.
For a different and equally memorable day, have our captain take you to the butterfly-shaped island of Favignana, the main of the three Egadi Islands off the western coast of Sicily.
Think 3 small islands for locals and long-stay regulars surrounded by the turquoise waters of a protected marine reserve.
While you spend a morning at the beach or an afternoon at the spa, we’ll take you out for a few hours to discover the nearby villages biking or driving your own vintage Fiat 500. We’ll take you trekking along panoramic trails leading to secluded beaches or on boat to see the Scala dei Turchi from the sea and disembark on time to visit the Valley of the Temples at sunset.
The present itinerary and the suggested accommodation are just examples to give you an idea of what your customised trip may look like. Get in touch for our portfolio of luxury hotels offering beautiful independent villas within the property.
