Sicily Island - Italy

Sicily’s location in the heart of the Med means it has been fought over for millennia, so you will find Greek ruins and Byzantine churches and taste Italian gelato and north African kebabs! The landscape is as varied as its history, with towering mountains, huge forests and – pretty important when you’re on holiday – beautiful beaches and hidden coves.

And if you take only one day trip during your stay, it must be to Mount Etna, Europe’s greatest natural wonder and only active volcano!

Domina Home Zagarella Hotel  

Our 2012 holidays on Sicily sold out months in advance and so we moved to a bigger hotel for 2013.  Not only does the Domina Home Zagarella allow us to offer more rooms on more dates, but it offers more in lots of other ways!

It is a very contemporary four-star hotel located right on the coast, with magnificent sea views from the main pool and terrace areas.  There are two swimming pools, sun decks with plenty of loungers and umbrellas, a gym, tennis court and from the (rocky) beach it is possible to water-ski, sail, windsurf and dive.  There’s a chic poolside bar and two restaurants, where we’ll have our own table(s).  At a bigger hotel like this, other guests may include children, but our dates are outside of school holiday periods and kids have both their own pool and an activities club.  The spacious public areas reflect the sophisticated style of the hotel: all in all, we’re delighted to have found the Domina Home!

The smart rooms – each with a double bed – have all the features you’d expect of a four-star, with bath and shower in the ensuite, a private balcony or terrace and air-conditioning.  Different floors follow different themes and colour schemes, from sugar pink to cool blue. 

We include continental breakfast and four dinners (1 at the hotel and 3 at local restaurants) with your Host - each week.  Fresh fish features on many menus, as well as local specialities from Caponata (aubergine salad) to Cannoli – a sweet ricotta pudding.

The Domina is within 15kms miles of Palermo, which is a must-do when it comes to sightseeing.  The Cathedral’s architecture reflects the island’s colourful history: muslim, gothic, romantic and modern all mixed up. The Catacombs are a more grizzly, but also unmissable ‘attraction’ with over 8000 mummified bodes in the monastery tombs.  More fun are the lively markets, with everything from ‘antiquities’ to street food on offer. The hotel is located in the Santa Flavia Province of Palermo. A short taxi ride or 15 minutes walk is the harbour area where there are some restuarants and local bars. In the opposite direction is a long coastline with a few restuarants and other hotels.
