Seeped in history, the Agrigento region on the western part of the Island of Sicily was called Agrigentum by the Romans and Girgenti by the Arabs. Descendants of the Greeks lived here around 582 BC. At night, the illuminated remains of the Temple of Concord can be seen in the Valley of the Temples. During the day, you will see that it is surrounded by olive groves and almond orchards. Greet springtime in Agrigento with the week-long activities of the Almond Blossom Festival in February , which includes the International Children of the World Festival, and a parade of Sicilian’s folk groups. See the fire of friendship marking the opening of the International Festival of Folklore at the Temple of Concord. Stay in a luxurious villa rental. Modern-day conveniences within an old-world environment are yours in vacation rentals. Villa rentals, cottages, or apartments in farm homes are but some of the accommodation options. Browse this easy-to-use website and see the pictures and read all the details of privately-owned holiday home accommodations.

The collection of buildings of the Museo Archeologico overlooks the Valley of the Temples, near the town at Contrada San Nicola. Here you will discover coins, architectural sculptures, vases as well as documentation depicting prehistoric - including fossils, stone objects, pottery, carved bones, and bronze metal work - to the period of Hellenization as well as the Roman and Byzantine period.

The low-lying hills of the region are covered with meticulously cared for vineyards. This is Sicily’s wine country. The traditional Sicilian carts, pulled by donkeys or horses, and made by maestro carradore Rafaele La Scale are being preserved by his son, Marcello, in the town of Agrigento. Their intricate beauty of colourfully painted and carved artwork depicting scenes of events of the area, along with exquisite ironwork underlies the values of those who have learned to get ahead in life with humility and with their ingenuity.

The sea narrowly divides Sicily from North Africa and the Arabian influence can be seen in the coastal town of Sciacca. Palm trees announce the beauty of the sandy beach which anchors the town – its tightly-fitting buildings climbing their way up the cliff. Take a walk along the seaside promenade and enjoy the serene beauty of the sea. Nearby, white cliffs appear to push their way out of the sea, reflecting the warmth of the sun-filled day. Head to the restaurant and enjoy today’s catch or prepare your own meal in the kitchen of your vacation rental accommodations. From the comfort of your beach-side condo rental, or villa rental, preparing a meal together with friends of family in the fully-equipped kitchen of your vacation rental offers a time of relaxed conversation as you anticipate a mealtime together. Villa rentals are often large enough for group celebrations. Would you like a private swimming pool with a breath-taking view? After a day of site-seeing, take time to enjoy the benefits of one of the thermal spas. The agile Peppe Nappa symbolically becomes the Mayor of Sciacca for the six-day Carnival held the week before Lent. . Wearing an oversized blue jacket and pants, and a felt hat placed over a white skull cap, he is the introduction to the carnival with floats of colourful oversized paper mache figures.

Explore your options. Owner Direct Vacation Rentals offers lodging accommodation directly from owners, villa rentals or condo rentals, in tranquil settings or in the midst of town-life activities. Privately-owned vacation rentals are often preferred instead of staying in a hotel.
