If you are planning a trip to Sicily then you must visit this excellent and informative website.
Based on obvious encyclopedic knowledge of this magnificent Mediterranean island, ThinkSicily has produced a stunning range of villas along with details of beautiful hotels, tailor-made itineraries, add-ons and general information.
From the homepage take a look at Villas in Sicily, all personally sourced and regularly inspected. You can choose by the number of bedrooms or by area, proximity to local shops, beaches, suitability for families etc, by using the right-hand toolbar. There is a virtual tour of each villa, so you can get a real feel of where you might stay.
Wineries and retreats includes a short list of extremely tempting places to stay if self-catering does not appeal.
Itineraries - Thinksicily offer semi 'self-guided' itineraries where you can choose between a general tour or ones aimed at the romantic, the historic, the gastronomic or those who like walking.
The company also provides details of other interesting things to do such as learning more about Sicilian cuisine, chartering a yacht or walking within the interior. Flight times with Ryanair, British Airways and other airlines are thoughtfully provided.
One of the star features of this site is the About Sicily section which includes detailed and helpful information on the climate, beaches, the interior of the island ( which is dramatic and mysterious), the food and wine as well as the history and archaeological sites such as those at Agrigento and Siracusa, or the wonderful mosaics at Piazza Armerina.
