Peace in Sicily
Have a lovely literary break at the Poets’ Corner in Sicily
Posted: 8 August 2011
To truly experience peace on Earth this Christmas, head to Enna in central Sicily and stay at the tranquil Poets’ Corner – the seven-bedroom, four-bathroom former holiday home of the aristocratic Grimaldi family. It sleeps 12 and was designed as a literary escape, so the white-washed walls feature the odd blackboard for moments of self-expression, while you can also enjoy wintery walks around Pergusa Lake or visit the snow-capped Madonie Mountains. If the countryside adventures sound like too much effort, relax in the Reading Room. One week in December from £3,950, including breakfast and maid service.
