Sardinia, or in Italian 'Sardegna', is not a mainstream Mediterranean destination but a sophisticated Italian island, west of mainland Italy and south of Corsica. With over 1000 miles of unspoilt coastline, it is renowned for beautiful beaches, translucent azure blue sea and fascinating rock formations.
Yet being the second largest Mediterranean island, it has so much more to offer with an interesting history, wild mountainous interior, vibrant towns with local traditions, colourful festivals. The people are warm and friendly and enjoying themselves in a way of life. A warm welcome awaits you in Sardinia.
Sardinia has a pleasant 6 month summer, hot and dry from May to October but often with a breeze due to its location in the centre of the Mediterranean. The winter months are mild with a good amount of sunshine, particularly in March and April when all the flowers are out and it can be hot during the daytime and cooler in the evenings.
Sardinia can be reached by just a 2 hour flight from the UK. There are now direct flights from many regional airports including Gatwick, Stansted, Bristol, Manchester, Nottingham East Midlands, Leeds Bradford, Edinburgh and Dublin. There are 3 airports in Sardinia: Olbia in the north east, Cagliari in the south and Alghero in the north west.
Sardinia is an island that allows you to truly experience the very essence of Mediterranean life. The cuisine offers a rich repertoire of dishes, heavily influenced by the country’s various neighbours including Corsica and Italy, accompanied by impressive local wines. The mixing of game and farm produce (traditional with inland towns) and fish and seafood (traditional with coastal towns) result in a combination of flavours and appearance that is unique to Sardinia.
Sardinia has something for everyone from the jet set world famous Costa Smeralda, with breathtaking scenery and exclusive hotels, to the unspoilt south coast with many deserted beaches and Caribbean-like turquoise sea. Wherever you are in Sardinia, there will be a stunning coastline with beautiful bays and beaches, vibrant yet uncommercialised towns and villages, a mountainous interior with wonderful views of the island, refreshing lakes and waterfalls, and an interesting history. For example, there are around 7,000 ‘Nuraghi’, (mysterious stone dwellings dating back 3,500 years), throughout the island as a permanent reminder of its prehistoric occupation, as well as numerous examples of Roman architecture as a catalogue of their dominance.
We love the island, its people and its way of life. Let us tempt you with sailing and swimming in turquoise sea (Active Sardinia).

This area is renowned for its dramatic granite rock formations and scenic views. The villa enjoys panoramic views across the countryside to the mountains surrounding the Costa Smeralda to the east and as far as Tempio and Monte Limbara to the west. The villa is situated 4km from the village of Bassacutena and about 20km drive from the vibrant towns and beaches of Palau to the north east and Santa Teresa to the north west. Porto Pozzo is about 15km drive offering good restaurants, shops and boat trips out to the islands and the windsurfing haven of Porto Pollo is a similar distance.
