Italy's Donnafugata Golf Resort & Spa offering golf packages

Donnafugata Golf Resort & Spa has made quite an impression in a short space of time and golfers can experience one of the new rising stars of the Italian game with a range of great-value golf breaks to Sicily this year.

Launched in 2010, the deluxe venue has quickly established itself as one of the most sought-after golfing destinations in Europe, and guests can enjoy some fantastic deals under cloudless skies on the resort's two championship courses - with prices starting from €132 (£120 approx) per person per night.

Host of the European Tour's Sicilian Open in 2011 and named Best Golf Resort in Italy last year by Condé Nast Traveller magazine, Donnafugata is also the only course in Italy to be invited to join IMG Prestige's exclusive portfolio of worldwide venues and is offering a variety of attractive packages in 2013.

A four-night break with two rounds of golf costs just €585 per person (£530 approx) and also includes daily breakfast, two three-course dinners, one light lunch and four entry vouchers to the spa and wellness centre, as well as full access to the resort's extensive golf practice facilities.

Alternatively, a seven-night package in the Sicilian sunshine with five rounds of golf is available for only €990 per person, including breakfast, three dinners, two lunches, free use of the practice area and seven entries to the spa.

Prices are based on two people sharing a twin or double standard room and include a 10 per cent service charge, while meals do not include drinks.

Located 90 minutes' drive from Catania airport, Donnafugata offers the perfect recipe for people seeking a relaxing holiday in five-star surroundings on the largest island in the Mediterranean.

Donnafugata boasts two 18-hole championship golf courses - the Links Course and the Gary Player-designed Parkland Course - with the latter being used to stage the 2011 Sicilian Open, won by Frenchman Rafael Jacquelin.

The luxurious resort lies near to the historic town of Ragusa, the cradle of Sicilian Baroque architecture, with its neighbouring towns listed among the pearls of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Modica, Scicli and Noto.

As well as two 18-hole championship golf courses, Donnafugata offers a spa and wellness centre, swimming-pools and three restaurants and is the ideal destination for a holiday focused on sport and relaxation in a truly exclusive setting.
