A blue-shuttered Sicilian gem sitting on the fabled clifftop of Scala dei Turchi, with sea views, steps from the beach – with car hire, travel and board options

Sitting pretty on the south coast of Sicily, this Italian gem is mere steps from the fabled Scala dei Turchi, powder-white cliffs criss-crossed with steps leading to a string of emerald bays below.

With blue-shuttered windows punctuating a vanilla-hued facade, the terracotta-roofed Scala dei Turchi Resort is crammed with character, from its traditional baglio and outdoor pool nestled among tranquil gardens, to its clutch of whitewashed rooms and suites, some offering a tantalising glimpse of the sea.

There are two restaurants serving local Sicilian specialties and traditional Mediterranean dishes, as well as a laid-back bar-café overlooking the Turkish Steps and a lounge-bar with an outdoor terrace and a cluster of cosy nooks for holing up with a book.

Spend your days exploring the archaeological sites and churches peppered across this history-rich pocket of southern Sicily, from the Valley of the Temples and the house and theatre of Luigi Pirandello in Agrigento, to the crumbling Greek theatre of Eraclea Minoa and Villa Romana in Realmonte.
