Serving up a mix of emerald seas, immaculate beaches, hills, narrow highlands, and mountainous massifs, Sardegna or Sardinia, is the second largest island in the Mediterranean after Sicily and before Cyprus. South of the French island of Corsica, this lovely island on which Forte Village Resort sits, is an autonomous region of Italy that is situated in the Western Mediterranean.
Sardinia is home to the “Domus Dejanas” (houses of the witches), the “Tombs of the Giants”, and about 7000 “Nuraghi” (stone buildings), all relics of past inhabitants. About an hour from Forte Village, another popular tourist attraction is the National Archaeological Museum of Cagliari which holds famed bronze statuettes and other relics of the Punic and Roman periods.
Sardegna boasts a number of lovely towns with Forte Village Resort which is situated in the lively capital city of Cagliari in the south. Sardinia is dotted with numerous inlets and islets strewn all around its rocky coasts.
There are three international airports on the island – Alghero-Fertilia Airport, Olbia–Costa Smeralda Airport and Cagliari–Elmas Airport. Forte Village Resort is a two hour flight from London and 49.4 kilometres from Cagliari–Elmas airport. During your 50-minute journey from the airport, you’ll spend most of the ride on Strada Statale 195 Sulcitana before you take Viale delle Nereidi to the resort.
If you’d like to see a bit of the town before heading to Forte Village, the centre of town is only about 10 minutes away when using the local buses- you can buy tickets from the machine in the arrivals hall. If you’d rather use a taxi, they cost about £12.
Forte Village has the most alluring beach along the resort’s coastline, so beautiful that Forbes magazine included it in their collection of the 25 most beautiful beaches in the world. The climate is almost tropical with the heat never feeling unbearable. The beach is at the foot of the mountains which means that it’s not affected by strong winds. The icing on the cake is that the water stays two degrees warmer than the rest of Sardegna.
At Forte Village, we’ll help you to arrange a private yacht to give you access to breath-taking beaches like Cala Cipolla, La Baia di Chia, and Tuerredda beach. With 150 meters of white, fine sands and nestled in a narrow bay, Cala Cipolla is one of the dearest spots for off-season surfers. La Baia di Chia has a lagoon that runs parallel to the sea with a narrow stretch of beach separating it from the sea. Located near Domus de Maria, Tuerredda stretches 400 meters and is great for snorkelling or kayaking in the crystal clear blue waters.
Before you leave Sardinia, you might want to take the Trenino Verde (little green train), a railway tourism service that runs vintage railcars and steam locomotives through the untouched parts of the island. You’ll be treated to picturesque views you would ordinarily not see from the main roads.
One more thing, don’t forget to swig a beer on the island with the highest consumption per capita of beer in Italy.
