Christmas and New Year in Sicily is a unique experience with its glorious sunny weather and festival atmosphere, and the island’s deluxe Verdura Resort is the perfect setting to see in 2017 – with savings of up to 25 per cent available over the festive period.
Couples and families can enjoy a feast of five-star sports, leisure and cultural experiences while staying at the resort over the Christmas holidays, with prices starting from €387 (approx £318) per double room per night with no extra charge for a child aged 12 or under sharing.
Verdura’s festive schedule has something for everyone to enjoy including traditional Sicilian cookery lessons, wine-tasting, sightseeing excursions and tennis and spa activities.
Fun for golfers of all ages is on offer with three golf tournaments taking place on the award-winning venue’s three golf courses on December 30, New Year’s Eve and January 6, while younger members of the family will be kept fully entertained with a wide and varied children’s programme at the resort’s new Kids’ Club, Verdùland.
And guests can celebrate the new year in style with Verdura’s ‘Speciale Capodanno’ package, with reductions of 25 per cent available on bed-and-breakfast stays for four nights or more. Prices start from €193.5 per person per night and feature welcome New Year amenities, a five-course gala ballroom dinner including drinks and New Year’s brunch at the resort’s Zagara Restaurant.
All breaks are based on two people sharing a room and include complimentary access to the spa facilities and free Wi-Fi.
Nestling next to the Mediterranean in 230 hectares of stunning landscape, Verdura Resort – a Rocco Forte hotel – has quickly risen to become one of Europe’s elite contemporary, luxury sports and lifestyle destinations since opening in 2009.
Set on Sicily’s southern coast between Agrigento and the fishing city of Sciacca, an 80-minute drive from Trapani and Palermo airports, the resort features 203 rooms and suites – all with a sea view.
Guests can enjoy numerous sports and leisure facilities including two 18-hole championship golf courses and extensive practice amenities, an array of different watersports, a 60m two-tiered infinity pool, a 170sqm fully-equipped gym and an award-winning 4,000sqm spa complex.
