Property buyers or those looking for a holiday destination to relax could do worse than visit Sicily, which is the latest up-and-coming region of Italy for property buyers, according to the property website Rightmove Overseas.
Justin Figgins, director of the company, said he wouldn't be surprised if the value of property began to rise soon as the company's statistics indicate that interest in the area is growing significantly.
He added that it has been proved in the past that better and direct access to destinations also generates more interest in a location and several carriers are now offering direct flights from the UK to Sicily.
The benefits of Sicily include "stunning scenery, a good climate, very affordable property and a range of activities that make it a year-round holiday destination, Mr Figgins concluded.
Sicily offers visitors the chance to play golf and go skiing so holidaymakers or property buyers looking to experience Sicily should be advised to take out specific travel insurance policies, with the likes of golf travel insurance and ski insurance available.
Rightmove claims that Italy is the fourth most popular overseas travel destination among its users behind Spain France and the USA.
