10 Best Places to Stay in Sicily

FotorCreated

Oh Sicily How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

When I was a graduate student back in Paris in 1998, my girlfriends and I took three girl trips to Sicily every chance we got. Out of all the places to go on our holidays, we kept going back to Sicily. Why? Because it is one of the most magical places on earth. We stayed in Taormina every time. A beautiful, picaresque seaside village perched high up on the cliffside overlooking the Mediterranean in eastern Sicily. Every cool word you can think of applies to Taormina: hip, chic, jetsetter, sartorial, quaint, aesthetic, delicious, amorous, lux and beyond.  Sicily is a gem in so many ways. Your eyes will be mesmerized by its natural beauty, its stunning people and its architecture. Your tastebuds will be in heaven over its food and wine. Mostly, your overall experience there will change your life.  Once there, you will feel time suddenly stand still and everything is beautiful including yourself. All inner strife is gone, and paradise begins. Sicilians are very proud of their ‘island’, and will continuously be of the utmost host to you (go with it- you will have the best time in doing so- my stories of the amazing hospitality we received are endless)- it’s how they are. Don’t be surprised when they fiercely explain to you with loving eyes, how they are more Sicilian than Italian. On that note, this post is devoted to the best places to stay in one of my favorite places. My handpicked list of delicious boutique hotels, villas and inns to be a guest in while you are visiting one of the most exquisite places in the world…. Sicilia aka Sicily.

Because it’s all about where you rest your head at night, an intrinsic ingredient to make for the perfect vacation. The art of finding that perfect bed pillow with that perfect view, and let’s not forget the perfect companion to go with!

Note: all hotels span from the eastern side of Sicily where you will find Taormina  – to the the mid southern coastal town of Agrigento. This small corner radius of the island encompasses a treasure chest of outstanding places to stay that will enhance and enchant your trip beyond your wildest dreams. Such is Sicily.
