With beautiful beaches, romantic towns and a personality all of its own, this picturesque island will not disappoint, whether you want to immerse yourself in culture or just bathe in the Mediterranean sun.
Lying some 120 miles west of Italy, staying in Sardinia means you can enjoy one of the most fashionable islands in the Mediterranean.
With a spectacular coastline, valleys of golden wheat, rugged mountains dotted with caves and the pungent aroma of wild herbs, Sardinia has always seemed rather special.
Nestled into its silent olive groves, for example, are some of Europe's oldest archaeological remains, dating back to 1700 BC. Meanwhile, its people speak a language incomprehensible to all other Italians, celebrate more saints' days than anyone else in the nation and loves to dress up in elaborate costumes at the drop of a finely embroidered hat.
During the season, the main towns of Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo play host to some of the world’s most luxurious yachts and although it’s a very expensive area to stay, it is worth a day trip. Explore the island’s coastline and picturesque fishing villages or take a boat trip along the coast or out to the island of San Pietro with its picture-perfect white-washed and pastel painted houses.
From the glamour of the Costa Smeralda to the quieter resorts of the southern shores, Sardinia is an island of great beauty and breathtaking beaches.
