Chartering a sailboat in Sicily!

Well, Evelyn and I are determined to charter a sailboat in Sicily this upcoming spring. We have found various chartering web sites for that area, but I was wondering if any of you happen to have experience chartering a sailboat in Europe?

One chartering site we found doing business in Sicily is:

Sicily sailing area - sailing around the Italian island in the Mediterranean | Yachtico.com

Does anyone have any experience using these folks, or can suggest a better one?

We are also still deciding whether to sail from Sicily, North, toward the island of Stromboli, or South, toward Malta.
There are numerous islands between those destinations, for us to stop at.

So, we were also wondering which of those islands would provide the "old world charm" along with historical sights, great food, etc., and fit into a prevailing wind pattern to visit by sailboat?

Any suggestions / advisements would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you,
Doug
