European Holidays – The Culinary Art of Squeezing Tomatoes

Our European Destination Specialist Jackie Slaughter loves nothing more than discovering other cultures, so she couldn’t wait to get involved in a Sicilian cookery class at the Verdura Resort in Sicily this summer. She joined local chef Gianluca and a handful of other guests to prepare a delicious lunch.  The dishes were crafted under Gianluca’s watchful eye, using fresh local ingredients. To bring the taste of Sicily into your own home this chilly autumn , see the recipes below.

Family Holidays – From African Safaris to Mediterranean Resorts

As parents ourselves, we’ve experienced the challenges of travelling with small children. We instinctively understand the importance of knowing whether the villa pool is gated or not, which seats on the plane are most suitable when travelling with babies and which Mediterranean resorts have the best kids clubs. Our destination specialists take the time to understand your family’s interests and needs, whether you have teenagers demanding high-adrenalin activities or a toddler who loves splashing about in a pool.

A Taste of Sicily

The ancient hilltop town of Taormina commands unimaginably impressive views over the Ionian Sea, and no more so than from the terrace of the Grand Hotel Timeo where the vista stretches across to brooding Mt. Etna. Here a sense of tranquillity pervades each day until the early evening when ‘promenading’ commences in earnest and suddenly the whole town is alive to café society, music and laughter. As one strolls down the ancient streets, past the luxury boutiques and hidden bistros, there is an overriding sense of pleasure in being encapsulated by such beautiful surroundings.
