Hotel of the Month: Villa Sant’Andrea, Sicily

Villa Sant’Andrea in Sicily has set our tongues wagging for June’s Hotel of the Month.  The mini heatwave that’s hit the UK has really got us longing for everything this place can offer!

Set on its own exclusive beach in the secluded Bay of Mazzarò, Villa Sant’Andrea has an unbeatable location. Glistening aquamarine waters invite you to explore the numerous caves tucked around the bay, while the lush, subtropical gardens surround you to provide a secluded retreat.

The family friendly features include:

Special menus in Restaurant Oliviero and room service
Children’s welcome kit
Family friendly DVDs
Children’s slippers and bathrobes
Professional babysitting on request
Buckets, spades and snorkels at the beach
Teen and child spa treatments at the Wellness Centre

And the Smile Club features an English-speaking entertainer, where kids can enjoy sand castle contests to beach bag decorating.  They even offer local trips, such as fishing with an authentic Sicilian fisherman, or a day at the local farm discovering bees and their honey!

While the little ones are being expertly looked after, the hotel offers a stunning heated infinity pool, located at the edge of the bay, where you can relax with one of the e-readers, loaded up with an exclusive digital service of magazines and periodicals.  Heavenly.

For the fitness conscious amongst you, personal trainers are on hand at the fully equipped fitness centre to help prepare a tailored workout.

Let’s get onto the all important food.  At Villa Sant’Andrea you can enjoy a Sunday evening BBQ on the beach, Afternoon Sea Time (a Sicilian take on the English Afternoon Tea, and one not to be missed!) or an unbeatable romantic beach supper under the stars, amongst other culinary delights.

Villa Sant’Andrea ticks all the boxes and is a hotel well worth visiting in our opinion!
