This rustic villa is a romantic retreat close to Porto Rotondo's beautiful beaches and only a 5-minute drive from Golfo di Marinella with its many restaurants and shops and lovely sandy beach.
Further afield is Porto Cervo in Costa Smeralda, the heart of the international jet set. Stroll along the quay lined with designer boutiques on one side and luxury yachts on the other. As you head back, you'll pass San Pantaleo, a characteristic village perched on granite rocks shaped in varied and interesting ways.
For oenophiles, sample Sardinian wines from different regions: the Sella e Mosca from Alghero, the sweet Malvasia from Bosa, the crisp white Vermentino from Gallura or the strong, ruby red Nepente from Oliena. And for foodies, the island has plenty on offer: from the simplest agriturismi to the most glamorous restaurants in Porto Cervo.
Alongside Porto Cervo, Porto Rotondo is considered one of Sardinia's most sought-after resorts, and a favourite playground of the jetsetters. But while the world's biggest and best yachts, fine restaurants and designer boutiques can be found here, there's more to Porto Rotondo than a shiny patina. It's also home to numerous architectural feats, including the Piazzetta, created entirely in local stone, the granite amphitheatre and the Church of San Lorenzo. There's plenty to do in Porto Rotonda: from basking in the sun on its famed beaches, such as Marinella and Ira, to seeing outdoor plays at the magnificent outdoor amphitheatre in the summer.
