Sardatur Holidays says
Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean – after Sicily – but remains largely untouched by mass tourism. Beyond its sparkling coastline lies a rugged mountainous interior of dense forests and ancient villages. In some parts, wild horses run free.
Sardinia has been part of Italy for less than 300 years and much of the island still retains a rich culture and language all of its own. Restaurants serve roast suckling pig and wild boar with excellent local wines including Vermentino and Cannonau.
To many visitors, Sardinia means the ultra-chic resort of Costa Smeralda and the Forte Village Resort, rated by Forbes Magazine as the best family hotel in the world. Its renowned children’s facilities include a 5-star tennis school, a Chelsea Football Academy, a go-karting track and mini club.
But there is a lot more to Sardinia. This is a great island to explore, driving along wild coastal roads or inland to remote villages. The beaches are superb with long stretches of dazzling white sand, particularly in the southern areas of Chia, the Costa Rei, Oristano and Villasimius.
Sardatur has specialised in holidays to Sardinia since 1987. We have unrivalled knowledge of the island and feature a selection of stunning hotels by the beach that offer character, charm and style.
