Sicily: Glorious sunshine, golden beaches and amazing food – what more could you want for an Italian island getaway?
"‘When in Rome’ might be the saying, but when in Sicily there’s only one way to spend your time, and that’s kicking back in your own private villa. Nestled in the characterful town of Marsala, La Favorita is a spectacular setting to spend your first days as newlyweds. The lovingly tended-to gardens are dotted with lemon and orange trees, rosemary bushes, and weird and wonderful plants, while the interior of the former hunting lodge boasts antique décor and bedrooms adorned with white linen. La Favorita is fully serviced, which means your meals will be cooked and your beds will be made, seven days a week. Wake up to a buffet breakfast outside in the garden, including coffee, pastries, bread, cheese and meat (the gym will still be there when you get home) and spend your days swimming in the private pool or exploring the area. Think Sicily boasts a number of properties on the west cost of the island, and if a romantic beachside setting for two is more your thing, Cinnamon is the place to stay. This quintessential summer house is nothing less than charming, with direct access to sandy beaches and sea views, it doesn’t get much better than this."
