Evening Standard writer Jack Lefley stays at Sicilian villa Il Cappero with The Thinking Traveller.
'D.H Lawrence wrote of Sicily that "anyone who has once known this land can never be quite free from the nostalgia for it". Stay at Il Cappero and you may agree.'
'A chic glass-fronted conservatory leads on to a shaded patio, beyond which is the private saltwater pool. The garden- with sweeping views of the mountains - is full of olive trees and Mediterranean plants, which melt into the olive grove beyond'
'Our trip to Sicily will certainly live long in the memory'
