Verdura Resort, Sicily

The Rocco Forte's Verdura Resort is a stylish Golf and Spa Resort set on the South coast of Sicily. A truly individual Rocco Forte property on a vast estate with first class facilities for parents and their children to enjoy a luxury family holiday.

It really is family-friendly from the interconnecting rooms and suites for families, the dedicated children's lunches and suppers, the purpose built kid's club and the numerous activities for kids of all ages from the Juventus soccer school, golf academy and the specially designed children & teen spa programme. The space of this estate means that it never feels crowded even in peak summer.

What will the weather be like...

Sicily has a wonderful Mediterranean climate - being far South it really enjoys a longer season than many destinations and certainly has the most hours of sunshine and the least number of rainy days compared to any other Italian destination.

The summer heat is moderated to an average of 30 degrees celcius by the sea in the peak summer months with warm nights averaging 20 degrees. The days are long and sunny with 10 hours sunshine per dayand virtually no rain.

Spring tends to be marginally more reliable than Autumn. April averages 7 hours of sunshine per day and 20 degrees, May 8 hours and 24 degrees whereas October and November both have an average of 6 hours per day and tempertures of 25 and 21 degrees respectively.
