Exceptional villas curated by our experts
Blessed with some of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean, Sardinia is a little piece of Italian chic just off the coast, far from the maddening crowds of the mainland. Take in glamorous Costa Smerelda, studded with spectacular villas and boutique shops, where models and moguls frolic on sapphire shores, sleek sailboats scattered across the horizon.
Or hop aboard and head south for a slower pace of life, past sleepy coastal villages and ancient castle ruins. Moor up in one of Golfo di Orosei’s hidden coves, where secluded streaks of sand nestle between staggeringly sheer cliffs, cascading into effervescent emerald waters. To the south, you’ll find the silken sands of the Costa del Sud, miles of unspoilt coastline and crystal Caribbean-like waters. To the west, leave the first footprints in the sensational windswept dunes of the Costa Verde.
If you can bear to abandon the beautiful beaches, you’ll find a wild interior, puzzling prehistoric structures nestled among soaring mountains, alpine forests and cascading waterfalls. Or head out to sea, where shipwrecks provide sub-aqua splendour, and the splendid islands of La Maddalena beckon, scalloped coves scattered with powder-white sand. Return to your beachfront villa, a whitewashed triumph in interior design, feasting on handmade pasta tossed with seafood and saffron, washed down with a glass of fine island wine.
