A&K Top Tip

A 15 minutes' drive is the picturesque seaside town of Sciacca. You can explore its medieval alleys and baroque churches, find a seafood restaurant for lunch, then relax on one of its many sandy beaches.

Guest Testimonial

That is why you use a travel agent and a company like A&K because you are always taken care of not only at the point of sale but during the travel, and after your return home if the need should arise.

- GJ, Tour Consultant



Rocco Forte Hotel's first resort, Verdura Resort is one of Europe's most exciting destinations. Designed by Flavio Albanese, the architecture is a mixture of the contemporary and the traditional, making extensive use of natural island materials such as stone, sand, wood and cane.

The accommodation continues the theme. Designed by Olga Polizzi, the interiors are defined by a rich palette of earth tones and bright printed fabrics - a motif inspired by classic Sicilian tiles. The bedrooms feature four-poster wooden beds, polished concrete floors and artful Italian lighting, and are decorated with locally fired earthenware. The bathrooms have stone vanity tops, and some have outside courtyards with lemon trees.

Set within two distinct types of building, Courtyard and Landscape, all the rooms are woven subtly into the olive grove landscape to create a real sense of privacy.
