Retreat location

Mount Etna is an undisputed king of the area, and hiking on its slopes is an unforgettable experience at any time of year. In the winter and spring, excellent skiing is possible and the upper slopes of Europe's highest active volcano are rarely without snow. The towns and villages that dot the flanks of Etna, all built in lava stone, are well worth stopping off at for a stroll or a spot of lunch in a local “trattoria”.

Sicily is home to millennial villages, deep valleys, and stunning views. The east coast Ionian Riviera has some of Sicily's most picturesque pebbly and sandy beaches including those of Isola Bella and Mazzaro (below Taormina).
