Our Top Pick for April

Visiting Sicily in the midst of its incredibly warm and dry summers isn’t everyone’s cup of tea and that’s why we find April is such a fantastic time to visit the Mediterranean’s largest island. There’s no better point during the year to explore Sicily’s wonderful historic towns without needing to take shelter from the heat. As well as providing a chance to relax and take in the stunning surroundings, our Sicilian short breaks also provide the opportunity to learn to cook some of the island’s most traditional dishes, all from the comfort of our 19th century farmhouses.

So, if you’re wanting to make your April that bit more exciting, why not escape with us to the Med for three nights and fall in love with this beautiful region?
