Whether you are hearing wedding bells, are a couple in the throes of an exciting new relationship or are looking for somewhere special to celebrate 50 years together, this fabulous destination is home to many amazing hotels. Here is an introduction to some of the best.
If getting off the tourist trail is important to you when travelling, Palazzo Failla is a lovely option. This hotel is close to the city of Modica and perfect for the culture loving couple. Itâ€™s a safe haven for those who want to shut themselves off from the world and indulge in each otherâ€™s company.
A walk into town will take you past a whole host of Baroque churches. The city centre is thriving with activity and you will be spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants, bars and cafes. There are plenty of wine tasting options too.
Modica is famous for its chocolate festival. Why not try to coincide your holiday with this spectacular event and book a private cooking lesson that will help you create your own aphrodisiac?
Romance exudes from every room in the intimate and beautifully elegant Ashbee. Simple luxury extends from the stunning gardens and the restaurant, and the rooftop terrace boasts fabulous views that stretch right to the coast. A couples massage is the ideal way to spend an afternoon, and exotic cocktails make the evening even dreamier. If you fantasise about staring into each otherâ€™s eyes, relaxing in an infinity pool and hanging out at a fabulous spa, the Ashbee is for you.
The resort centre has a plethora of cultural attractions as well as shops, restaurants and bars. This really is the ideal hotel for any couple who truly wants to be spoilt.
Villa Athena is perfect for couples seeking a hotel that offers an idyllic balance between relaxation and the opportunity for exploration. The hotel itself has a traditional and intimate restaurant with tables on the Terrace of the Gods. As a pianist plays, you can whisper sweet nothings to your sweetheart, before taking a romantic stroll through the olive groves.
Further afield, the local area opens up to reveal a whole host of intimate experiences. Sciacca is a pretty fishing village that makes a lovely base for a morning out, and the beautiful beaches at Scala dei Turchi are nearby if you want to top up your tans. For the culture loving couple who has romantic ideas about ancient history, a trip to the stunning Roman Villa at Piazza Armerina or the Valley of the Temples is definitely in order.
