FOR SPORTS STARS

Friday - - Travel -

Prob­a­bly one for the sum­mer, but def­i­nitely worth putting on your wish list, be­cause a stay at the Ver­dura Golf & Spa Re­sort in Si­cily of­fers some­thing for ab­so­lutely ev­ery­one in the fam­ily. Not only does it have three Kyle Phillips golf cour­ses, a world-class spa, and four restau­rants, but it also has a Ju­ven­tus Football Academy with a full-sized football pitch and a ten­nis academy.

All this, plus swoon-tastic ul­tra­con­tem­po­rary Olga Polizzi-de­signed rooms with wrap­around sea views, or suites with court­yards planted with or­ange trees. Plus of course a free kids’ club and a pris­tine beach.

The low-down: A two-room fam­ily pack­age starts from Dh1,523 per night (roc­co­forte. com). Re­turn flights from Dubai to Palermo, Si­cily, with Emi­rates costs from Dh14,845.
