Sheffield people are being offered free accommodation at a swanky Mediterranean hotel.

Rick Frost, who moved to Italy two years ago to start up a hotel in a ski resort, has now opened a beach hotel and resort in Sicily.

And Rick, originally from Clowne near Chesterfield, who worked in Sheffield, is offering free breaks in his hotel to people from the area for the next couple of weeks.

Rick said: “The season doesn’t really start here until July so in the meantime I’m looking forward to offering something back to the community I worked and grew up in.

“I am pleased to offer free accommodation for the next couple of weeks at the il Faro Hotel and Beach Resort.

“There are return direct flights from Manchester and Stansted for less than £100 and I can offer a four or seven night stay in one of our 30 double rooms.”

Rick will charge a £100 refundable deposit which will be given back when guests check in. He said: “This is to ensure people actually turn up.”

Facilities include a private beach, tennis courts, kite surfing, horse riding, football court, beach bar and pool bar.
