Sicily literally has something for everyone… age-old Roman and Greek ruins, dramatically perched cliff-top villages, endless stretches of beautiful beaches and the ever-present, smouldering Mount Etna. And not forgetting the foodies, Sicily is famed for its superlative cuisine and its passion for food and drink.
Located on the Southern coast of Sicily, this hotel has excellent facilities including 1.8km of private coastline. If you want to enjoy a holiday in a luxury location whilst your child have fun at the Kids Club or learn football or golf, then the Verdura Resort will suit your needs perfectly.
