Sicily Hotel Self-Drive Tour

Sicily Hotel Self-Drive Tour

As well as our farm house accommodation self-drive tour which gets to grip with the real life style of the island and our formal 15 day hotel accommodation self-drive tour, we recognise that some people would prefer a more flexible approach to selecting their acommodation for a self-drive tour.

Such a bespoke tour can be tailor made to shorter or longer durations that may be better suited to lower air seat prices depending on the flight arrival/departure days as flight prices can vary by as much as £100 per seat, so flexibility is the key - EXCEPT during the height of the high season between 29 July to 25 August. During this time many hotels are simply not interested in short stays in popular resorts.

We may still be able to offer the holiday during this short peak season but resorts/hotels may have to be changed and no booking under these circumstances becomes firm until agreement is reached with the client.

 

TAILOR MADE SELF DRIVE TOURS

Make up your own tour from any of the hotels that appear below.

We have selected what we regard as the best spots on the island to visit and at each spot we offer a choice of hotel standard and price.

You may choose any number of days at each hotel - except during the period 29/07 - 25/08, when some hotels have minimum stays.

Just tell us the hotels at which you wish to stay and your dates.
We will come back to you with a price and availability details!

View from the Alberi del Paradiso overlooking Cefalý

Cefalù

With heaps of character this fascinating small resort is located about 40km from Palermo on the northeast coastline. The old town with its narrow cobbled streets all lead to the centre point of the ancient town - the Norman built Cathedral built by William the Conqueror's half brother back in the 11th century.

There are many restaurants and bars in and around the town and beaches both west and east of the town.


4 STAR ACCOMMODATION

Hotel Alberi del Paradiso - A newly renovated hotel in 2005 which has a panoramic position above the town. Although 2km away from the beaches, the hotel has its own beach area and provides a beach shuttle service.

Taormina

Taormina

Busy all year, this medieval town which winds up a mountainside, is the most well known on the island. Just below the town is the seaside resort of Giardina Naxos, both towns being founded by the ancient Greeks - however, today, both are bustling and not for escapists!

It is impossible to ignore features of Taromina with its Greek amphitheatre overlooking the stunning views of the bay and other historic features. It has a wide choice of cafes and restaurants.With narrow streets to explore, it is a must to visit!!


4 STAR ACCOMMODATION

Ruins in Syracuse

Syracuse

The main town is rather un-impressive until you get to the old town via a bridge on the island of Ortygia founded by the Greeks which features among its streets 2700 years of history. On the outskirts are the remains of Greek theatre, a Roman coliseum and also a Greek prison formed from a cave. Within Ortygia are first class shops; fine and budget style restaurants and a host of cafés and bars. The fine buildings and squares of the town, along with the Cathedral demand to be visited.

3 STAR ACCOMMODATION

However, it is in a central position - offers car parking and is ideal for motorists.

Hotel del Santuario - This three star property gets its name from the nearby ultra modern church with its tent like dome that can be seen on the city’s skyline.

Agrigento

Agrigento

Founded by the Greeks in 581 BC the town is famous for its nearby Doric Temples. As for modern Agrigento it has a medieval town centre and some fine churches often constructed over original Greek temples - if you have the time the old town is worth a visit - well away from tourists attracted to the “valley of the temple".

The valley has several zones each with several temples in remarkable condition and it would be worthwhile to join on the English speaking guided tour to get the most from your visit.


4 STAR ACCOMMODATION

Hotel Colleverde Park - Located within lush gardens of around 10,000 sq metres it blends well into the landscape and the Valley with views of the nearest temples - yet only 2km from the town and 4km from the nearest beaches.
