Sardinia, an Italian destination that has everything….

Situated in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Sardinia,  is an island where coastal drives thrill, prehistory puzzles, and sheep (four million of them!) rule the roads. Sardinia captivates with its wild interior, dazzling beaches and endearing eccentricities.

Sardinia has some of the most amazing beaches you’ll find without stepping off European shores. Yes, the sand really is that white, and the sea the bluest blue. Imagine dropping anchor in Costa Smeralda’s scalloped bays, where celebrities and supermodels frolic in emerald waters; playing castaway on the Golfo di Orosei’s coves, where sheer cliffs ensure seclusion; or sailing to La Maddalena’s cluster of granite island.

Whether you go slow or fast, choose coast or country, Sardinia is one of Europe’s last great island adventures. Hike through the lush, silent interior to the twilight of Tiscali’s nuraghic ruins. Walk the vertiginous coastal path to the crescent-shaped bay of Cala Luna, where climbers spider up the limestone cliffs. Or ramble through holm oak forests to the mighty boulder-strewn canyon of Gola Su Gorropu

For the Foodies ….The coastline and mountains of Sardinia have created two unique food cultures in this island region of Italy. On the coast you eat fish; inland you eat meat. Fish stews beside the sea, roasted meats in the mountains – the qualities of the dishes are rooted in region, terrain and tradition, and the Sardinians are proud of those distinctions.

As DH Lawrence so succinctly put it: ‘Sardinia is different.’.  If you’re looking for a different experience, contact us now for some great offers departing in September.
