The Sardinia region

Sardinia is one of five locations identified by the editors of InternationalLiving.com in a recent article on the healthiest places on earth to live.

Sardinia, an island of 1.3 million people off Italy's Mediterranean coast, is a Blue Zone. Blue Zones are areas in the world that have been determined by scientists as places where the people live the longest.

Sardinia has some of the oldest people on earth, and Sardinian food may be the reason for their health and longevity.

The Mediterranean Diet is no doubt good for you, and Sardinians actually live the Mediterranean lifestyle, too. This could be the key to their incredible health and longevity.

Sardinian wine, cheese, and bread have something extra going for them.

Sardinians produce a number of wines, but a local variety called Cannonau, a dark red wine, contains the world's highest levels of antioxidants.

Experts have also found that, while the Sardinian diet isn't heavy on fish, which is the usual dietary source of essential Omega-3 fatty acids, Sardinians get heaps of this dietary boon from a local cheese called pecorino sardo, made from the milk of grass-feed sheep.

Sardinians also commonly eat simply, homemade breads that contain vitamins and lactic acids that fight harmful bacterial in the digestive tract.

Experts suspect that these three pillars of the Sardinian diet…dark red wine, fresh country cheese, and homemade bread…combined with other lifestyle and dietary factors, could be the keys to living a longer, healthier life no matter where you live.

“For 30 years we've been providing information on places where people can live better for less,” says Jackie Flynn, publisher of InternationalLiving.com. “There are places on earth where people live simple, healthy lives without the financial and social worries that weigh so heavily on people in modern, industrialized countries. We asked our editors and contributors around the world to come up with their top five, and Sardinia made the cut, as did New Zealand, Panama, Costa Rica, and Ecuador.

“These places can not only help you live a longer life,” says Flynn, “but can also save you significant money on cost of living, and that's good for your bottom line as well.”

Stintino

The small Sardinian coastal resort of Stintino is located on the north west peninsular of Sardinia and is some 50 km north of Alghero. Travel time to the town by car from Alghero is approximately one hour.

The tip of the peninsular at Capo Falcone is around 4 km further north from Stintino and the area is dotted with hotels and villas. Turning south past the cape, the landscape drastically alters into a line of rugged cliffs towering up to 50 m above the sea.

Town

The resort of Stintino was founded just over one hundred years ago when the state requisitioned the island of Asinara for use as a prison. The resident fishing families were relocated to the current site which is conveniently situated between two natural inlets.

The town is essentially a compact grid of largely residential streets sandwiched between the two harbours that were built on the inlets. In the absence of the usual central piazza, the harbours (Porto Nuovo to the north and Porto Vecchio to the south) are the main focal points for tourist activity. Needless to say this means that the restaurants in Stintino are well known for their seafood.

Beaches

The rocky peninsular boasts one of the top beaches in Sardinia at La Pelosa. Located to the north of the town, just short of Capo Falcone with the watchtower of Torre Falcone in view, the fine white sands are lapped by shallow, warm, tranquil waters that stretch the short distance across to the Island of Piana.

Its popularity means crowds at all but the lowest times of the season and with the relatively small size of the beach, visitors will find that room on the sand is at an absolute premium in July and August. There is a car park opposite the beach and more parking available on the approach road. Expect to pay around one euro an hour to stop here.

One kilometre to the south is the beach of Le Saline. This gets its name from the salt works once set here and operated by the monks of Santa Maria di Tergu. As well as a Spanish bastion the salt lagoon often attracts flocks of flamingos.

Islands

It is possible to take a boat trip from Stintino, and sometimes La Pelosa, to the nearby Islands of Piana and Asinara. The tiny Island of Piana is home to a solitary watchtower whilst the larger Asinara was granted national park status at the end of the 1990s in an effort to allow wildlife to flourish and so has restricted access.

"Great trip with great friends!"

Our stay at the villa was fabulous! There were 5 of us in the group for a 40th birthday celebration. The villa was large enough for all of us to have our own space. The master bedroom has a great view and I enjoyed my morning coffee on the balcony taking in the breath taking surroundings. When we were not on the beach, we relaxed by the pool which is lovely. Great restaurants are in the area. Valentina's is within walking distance and they have great food. Can't say enough good things about our stay. The villa, the views, the food, the fun! Can't wait to go back!
