Situated on the south west coast of Sicily, between the Valley of the Temples in Agrigento and the fisherman city of Sciacca, the Resort is set in a 230 hectare park among olive and orange groves, with over 1.8 km private coastline, so it’s perfect for a quiet family trip!
The resort is named after the grand Verdura family who once owned the land on which the property exists today. The last Duke of Verdura was a cousin of the renown Italian writer Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa. His masterpiece, the novel The Leopard, can be found in every bedroom.
Verdura Resort fuses strong, modernist, environmentally-sensitive architecture with design that is simultaneously luxurious, yet firmly rooted in Sicilian culture.
Inspired by the spectacular Mediterranean setting the Italian architect Albanese used local colours such as Latin terracotta and ochre, and varying textures by mixing local materials such as stone, sand and wood. Strong geometrical lines characterize the buildings, likened to the design of traditional Sicilian houses.
Luxurious space, intelligent design, comfort and privacy characterize the 203 rooms at Verdura, all with sea view.
AND HERE’S WHERE I FELL IN LOVE WITH GOLF!
Two 18-hole championship courses and a 9-hole par-3 course (913m) meander across terrain that undulates from mountain foothills down to the Mediterranean sea. A double ended driving range (65m wide) completes the golf offer as well as a clubhouse with golf shop, bar, restaurant and boutiques.
Set amid olive groves, oranges and lemon trees, Verdura Spa is one of Europe’s most advanced luxury wellbeing centres, with a distinctive Sicilian flair.
Verdura Spa offers an holistic approach to health, wellbeing and fitness. According to the philosophy of the resort the wellness treatments take inspiration from the island, using local ingredients such as pure olive oil, marine salt, lavender, rosemary, oranges and lemons etc.
