Located in Sicily's beautiful north east, the areas of Linguaglossa and Savoca promise rewarding and memorable holidays for those visiting the island.
As the next holiday season approaches and our 2018 programme inspires holiday-makers hoping to visit the island of Sicily, we're feeling extra excited about some of our new properties recently added to our collection. It's always fascinating to discover life on the doorstep of the new hotels, villas and houses hand-picked for our programme, something that is certainly true for The Lemon House and Villa Neri Resort & Spa.
Located in Savoca and Linguaglossa respectively, these two new additions won't just add comfort and style to your Sicily holiday, but also help to unveil two areas of the island that we've yet to showcase in previous holiday seasons. It's undoubtedly rewarding to delve into the unknown when on holiday, but we thought we'd give you a flavour of what to expect from a stay in either Linguaglossa or Savoca, to get you prepared.
Historic rooftops in Savoca
Discovered at the beginning of a picturesque mountain road, surrounded by hazelnut groves and pinewoods, Linguaglossa provides the perfect entrance point for exploring the northern slopes of Mount Etna and its national park. The village itself is pretty, tranquil and authentic, home to many striking and historical buildings, including the Church Santa Maria delle Grazie, built using lava stone.
Blessed by a stunning location within the Etna National Park, enjoying beautiful natural surroundings as well as easy access to the popular tourist town of Taormina, Villa Neri Resort & Spa is the perfect base from which to enjoy the highlights of the area.
A charming, authentic and beautiful hilltop village, nestled on the slopes that surround Mount Etna and its national park, Savoca enjoys plenty of history, culture and character. Those familiar with the village may recognise it as the setting of some scenes from the iconic 1971 film, The Godfather, including Bar Vitelli where you can step into the world of The Godfather and enjoy a tasty granita as you do. The medieval village also boasts some striking architecture, resulting in its official naming as one of Italy's most beautiful villages.
The Lemon House is the place to stay for those hoping to enjoy all that Savoca has to offer, as well as the several other interesting destinations and attractions in the area. This charming boutique hotel is both luxurious and stylish.
