With a beautiful coastline stretching as far as the eye can see, Sicily is pure paradise. For a chance to enjoy life on the water, Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea is the perfect retreat, perched on the shores of the dazzling Mediterranean.

The hotel is nestled between subtropical gardens and its own private beach, and everything in between is pure luxury. The 71 rooms and suites are bright and airy, looking out over the colourful gardens or turquoise sea.

Choose to dive straight into the water, or take a dip in the heated infinity pool before relaxing with a massage under the shade of an orange tree. With so much to explore, you’ll want to take advantage of the boat tours that take you out to the Aeolian Islands, marvelling at Stromboli volcano and stopping to swim in the crystal clear waters of secluded bays.

Dining al fresco is one of the joys of a stay by the coast, and guests can enjoy wonderfully fresh seafood and regional cuisine. Whether you’re poolside or beach-bound, you can relax with an aperitif or gelato while soaking up the sun. Food is what it’s all about in Italy and a barbecue on the beach or picnic in the garden is a chance to drink in your surroundings. If it’s romance you’re after, a candlelit dinner on the beach is hard to beat.

If you fancy giving your sea legs a rest, then capture the beauty of Sicily with a photography tour, catch a show at the ancient Greek theatre in Taormina or explore the villages on the slopes of Mount Etna.
