Verdura is an oasis, a centre of wellbeing, escapism and indulgence set against backdrop of charming Sicilian villages, ancient Greek and Roman sites and the beautiful, blue Mediterranean Sea.
From its unspoiled sandy coast, undulating vineyards and magnificent cathedrals, the enchanting beauty of western Sicily is unparalleled. Embark on a journey of discovery with Rocco Forte Hotels in Sicily and marvel at the island's thousand souls.
Our suggested itinerary starts off in Palermo, Sicily's sensual and vivid capital, and be one of the first to experience Villa Igiea following its grand re-opening. A showstopping property, Villa Igiea is a majestic Grade I-listed palazzo, immortalised in film and literature, that has served as an elite seaside-meets-city oasis for over a century. After a meticulous restoration led by Olga Polizzi and Nicholas Haslam studios, the hotel's interiors recall its former glory and heritage to life. Ten minutes from Palermo's Baroque splendour and bustle, Villa Igiea celebrates the best that Sicily has to offer - cultural richness, timeless architecture, eclectic gastronomy - whilst overlooking the pristine Tyrrhenian Sea.
After two nights, leave the city behind and enjoy a complimentary transfer to Verdura Resort, near Sciacca. Our flagship resort complements Villa Igiea: ultra-sleek with contemporary designs nestled in 230 hectares of centuries-old orchards, olive groves and vineyards, Verdura offers a different take on the island. With two golf courses, a private beach and a 4,000 square meter spa, the hotel emphasises Sicily's spectacles of nature and is a haven of relaxation. Spend three nights at your leisure, enjoying indulgent spa treatments, organic cuisine by Fulvio Pierangelini and a few rounds of golf. Dine in our ancient olive grove, savour a sunset aperitivo from our sea-view terraces and glide out into the crystal waters of the Mediterranean – paradisiacal.
