Luxury spa
Sicily Sicily is located in the central Mediterranean. It extends from the tip of the Apennine peninsula from which only the narrow Strait of Messina, towards the North African coast, separates it. Its most prominent landmark is Mount Etna, which is at 3,320m the tallest active volcano in Europe and one of the most active in the world.

Sicily as a holiday destination
Be prepared to be overwhelmed by Sicily’s contrasts, landscapes, beaches and amazingly diverse, ancient heritage. From its bubbling capital Palermo to age-old Roman and Greek ruins, sun-drenched sands and the ever-present, smoldering Mount Etna, this is one island overflowing with treasures.

Sicilian climate
Sicily is situated in the southern Mediterranean, no more than 100miles from the North African coast, so has the benefit of sunshine for much of the year. Even the winter months are mild in the coastal resorts with daytime temperatures in the low 60s, or 15-16°C.

Sicilian coastline
Following a thousand kilometers of coastline, Sicily's varied shoreline offers sandy beaches, rugged cliffs, nature reserves, views of the Aeolian Islands, and the chance to spot flamingos and turtles. It has a vaguely triangular shape and is surrounded by the Tyrrhenian Sea on the north and the Ionic Sea on the east.

Sicilian culture
Venus, The Goddess of Love was born in Sicily. It has a rich and unique culture, especially with regard to the arts, music, literature, cuisine, architecture and language. Sicily also holds importance for archeological and ancient sites such as the Necropolis of Pantalica, the Valley of the Temples and Selinunte.

Sicilian gastronomy
Holidays in Sicily are about enjoying the island's passion for food and drink too. From east to west and from north to south, the gastronomy of this southern Italian island is a triumph of flavours and traditional recipes.

Golf in Sicily
Sicily may not be an apparent choice when it comes to a destination for a golfing holiday, but the island already boasts 6 exciting and enjoyable 18-hole courses, strategically situated in some of the island's most beautiful areas.

Features
 
The Picciolo golf club - Etna golf

One of the advantages of the Picciolo is that golfers can play the whole year round: the ground does not freeze in winter and in summer the altitude of 650 metres and proximity to the sea, which is about 50 kilometres away, tempers the climate which elsewhere is roasting the Island of Sicily. Superb use was made of the 44 hectares of hilly land and the technical obstacles fit so well into the landscape that the course seems to be completely natural.

The first holes pass through an old hazelnut grove and then continue among clusters of broom and forsythia and patches of marguerites, until the player comes to an area where the volcanic land becomes the dominant feature. The last holes end right in front of the clubhouse. From the terrace of the large pink house, the traditional colour of landowners’ villas situated on the slopes of the volcano, the view sweeps towards the dark lava peaks and the green Nebrodi Mountains.

In the refurbishment of the clubhouse, it was decided to use exclusively local materials: chestnut for the beams open to view and for the doors, lava rock worked into smooth slabs for the stairs and doorways, terracotta for the walls and floors. Don´t forget to sample the delicious wines made from the gentle rows of vines that make this area famous, producing a wine that boasts the prized Etna D.O.C. (“Controlled Denomination of Origin”) label.
