Lido Villeggiatura, the latest addition to Villa Sant’Andrea Beach Club, promises an enchanting escape where the Mediterranean meets Sicilian elegance.

Embracing the timeless allure of Villa Sant’Andrea, famously a private villa until the 1950s, Lido Villeggiatura embodies the essence of Mediterranean sophistication. Set against the backdrop of the ethereal Isola Bella Nature Reserve, guests are invited to immerse themselves in the beauty of their surroundings while enjoying an array of curated experiences.

Sanctuary of Style and Comfort

The design ethos of Lido Villeggiatura pays homage to its natural heritage, blending mid-century aesthetics with traditional Sicilian elements. Stylish white-and-blue striped sun loungers dot the pristine shores, inviting guests to bask in the Sicilian sun in unparalleled comfort.

For those seeking a retreat within a retreat, six exclusive cabanas offer a haven of privacy and indulgence. Adorned with lace-inspired "merletto" cushions and embellished with local straw fabrics, each cabana is a celebration of Sicilian craftsmanship. Guests can unwind in plush sofas, savor alfresco lunches served by their dedicated butler, and soak in the breathtaking views of the azure sea.

From Sunrise to Sunset: A Journey of Sensory Delights

At Lido Villeggiatura, the day unfolds with a symphony of experiences designed to engage the senses. From sunrise yoga sessions by the water's edge to signature wellness treatments in the private cabanas, guests are invited to embark on a journey of rejuvenation and relaxation.

As the day transitions into evening, the vibrant beach bar comes alive with coastal cocktails and zesty aperitivos. Sundays are reserved for authentic "Villeggiatura" game sessions, where guests can partake in spirited rounds of cards and board games amidst the company of family and friends.

A Culinary Odyssey: From Tide to Table

For gastronomes, Lido Villeggiatura offers an unrivaled dining experience inspired by Sicily's rich culinary heritage. Tide-to-table delicacies are served at Brizza, where guests can savor the finest seafood paired with outstanding Sicilian wines. For a truly intimate affair, bespoke candlelit dinners for two can be arranged on the beach, featuring a delectable four-course menu of local specialties.

Exploring Sicily's Coastal Splendor

Beyond the shores of Lido Villeggiatura lies a world of exploration waiting to be discovered. Guests can embark on a journey aboard the hotel's private boat, Apreamare Gozzo 35, crafted by the renowned Aprea family. From scenic cruises to champagne-paired picnics, the possibilities are as endless as the Sicilian coastline itself.
