EASTER BREAKS: Chocolate and Sunshine in Sicily - Save 10% on soloSicily Villas
Easter is a time for big celebrations in Italy, and nowhere more so than in Sicily. Grab some early Spring sunshine and save up to 10% at Easter on a selection of villas offered by villa specialist, soloSicily.
A short stroll to the beach, Villa Apolline is surrounded by a large Mediterranean garden, with barbecue and outdoor kitchen area, perfect for al fresco dining. Wander to the nearby beach for an early morning dip then make tracks for the fish market for the best catch of the day.
Visit the nearby baroque town of Modica where Easter means colourful processions and extraordinary spicy chocolate. Join in the celebrations on Easter Sunday at the ‘Maronna Vasa Vasa’, a spectacular double procession along two routes in Modica, culminating in the meeting and greeting of the statues of the Virgin Mary and Christ, amidst pealing bells and soaring doves, then head for the Antica Dolceria Bonajuto chocolate shop, in situ since 1880, to sample chocolate made using the Mexican technique that was first introduced to the town by the Spanish in the 16th century.
One week at Villa Apolline (sleeps 6) starts at £1323 (after discount) at Easter with http://www.soloSicily.com, tel. 020 7193 0158. Fly to Catania with British Airways or Easyjet.
