With the Easter weekend fast approaching you’ll no doubt be weighing up your travel options for this year’s holiday treat. What if you could be offered something different? Something personal, something more suited to a refined taste in travel and experience?
Grand Hotel San Pietro, Sicily, Italy
As the only Relais & Chateaux in Sicily this quiet and beautifully maintained retreat, a few minutes walk from the centre of Taormina town, is encapsulated by the glorious Sicilian flora that flourishes in this part of the World. From the Grand Hotel San Pietro, breathtaking views can be enjoyed over the Mediterranean seas and out to the ‘Isola Bella’ (beautiful island), a small emerald promontory that can only be reached at low-tide via a connecting bridge.
Stay during Holy Week and experience the fascinating Good Friday Procession along the main street Corso Umberto starting at 7pm. On Sunday morning the Holy Easter Mass at 10am in the S.S. Pietro e Paolo Church is just in front of the hotel.
Masseria La Raganella Celeste, Salento, Italy
What better way to celebrate ‘Settimana Santa’ or Holy Week than a trip to Italy and more specifically to the Salento area in Apulia, where this very important religious event is celebrated across the region.
Spend Easter at Masseria La Raganella Celeste, a luxury modern Masseria not far from Lecce, a perfect mix of contemporary design and traditional local craftsmanship. Tucked away in an extensive olive grove, this very spacious and tranquil villa with infinity pool and a plethora of amenities is equipped to offer you a magical holiday.
