    Off to Sicily for the first time next July. Are there any chain hotels or are they all locally owned ? Flying in and out of Palermo with no agenda as yet

    What’s your budget? There’s a fabulous Rocco Forte hotel, Villa Igiea in Palermo. It’s not in the centre but has a nice outdoor pool and a complimentary shuttle to the centre.

    Or in the centre is the Grand Hotel et des Palmes. Not stayed there and not sure if it has an indoor pool, there were plans for that to happen.

    Other than that Ihave also flown into Catania and stayed at the less grand but still stylish Grand Hotel Villa Politi in Syracuse on the south east end of the island. I hired a car then that allowed an easy drive to Catania, Taormina and Noto.

    No Hilton or IHG hotels. I stayed in B&B type places as I did a circuit of the classical sites. The one which sticks in the mind was Villa Seta near Agrigento/valley of the temples. Great hospitality and an unbelievable breakfast. It also has a pool/bbq area so a bit more than a typical B&B.
