About Us

Pomelia Holiday Homes, holiday rental estate agency

For more than 15 years Pomelia Holiday Homes has been working in tourism sector and nowadays it manages several holiday rental properties throughout Sicily.

The agency was set up in 2007 with the aim of creating, in a territory that was strongly developing in tourism, an innovative host offer based on the concept of “self-catering accommodation”, which can guarantee a comfortable stay in complete autonomy.
Our well-furnished properties are near the sea and accurately selected with attention to every detail. They boast a perfect position to visit the main tourist sites and are located in the most beautiful seaside resorts and Baroque towns of Sicily.

For 13 years we have been cooperating as partner of Airbnb.com, a sharing platform and world leader in tourist rentals. We have obtained the title of “Super Host” several times which rewards hosts with the best reviews and performances in terms of welcome and hospitality and is recognizable by the badge inserted in the profile and in the announcements.

Many of our properties can therefore also be booked on the airbnb.com platform.

If you want, you can also proceed with direct booking through our website and our agency.

Advantages of direct booking

  • Lower prices from 5% to 15%
  • Payment of only 30% upon booking
  • Payment of the balance of 70% upon arrival (after viewing the accommodation)
  • Flexible cancellation conditions (up to 30 days from the arrival date)
  • Possibility of discounts for long stays


We work like a “widespread hotel” providing centralized services to our guests: we offer a holiday home service including the weekly cleaning, the bed linen and towels and our customer assistance service during the whole stay.
We are available to satisfy our customers’ needs during their holiday.
