Spend Christmas at Luxury Sicily Villa Case Sgadari
Enjoy Christmas in Sicily at Case Sgadari, a luxury villa from Solo Sicily. Escape from the UK this Christmas and enjoy traditional Italian Christmas or New Year celebrations in a rural idyll in Sicily.
Instead of mince pies and Christmas pudding, feast on Sicilian Christmas delicacies such as ‘torrone’ (nougat), ‘buccellati’, large round biscuits filled with almonds, pistachios, figs and other dried fruits, and ‘cobaita’, a sort of nougat made with honey and seeds of sesame and take time out to explore the real Sicily, away from the coast.
Many local towns boast magnificent ‘presepi’ (nativity scenes) in churches and in many homes and in some small towns, large bonfires are lit on 24 December, the Night of the Luminari, traditionally to keep the baby Jesus warm.
