Why choose Sardinia as a holiday destination?

Sardinia is not a mainstream Mediterranean destination but a sophisticated Italian island, west of mainland Italy and south of Corsica. With over 1000 miles of unspoilt coastline, it is renowned for beautiful beaches, translucent azure blue sea and fascinating rock formations. Yet being the second largest Mediterranean island, it has so much more to offer with an interesting history, wild mountainous interior, vibrant towns with local traditions, colourful festivals. The people are warm and friendly and enjoying themselves in a way of life. A warm welcome awaits you in Sardinia.

Sardinia can be reached by just a 2 hour flight from the UK. There are now direct flights from many regional airports including Gatwick, Stansted, Luton, Bristol, Manchester, Nottingham East Midlands, Liverpool, Leeds Bradford, Edinburgh and Dublin. There are 3 airports in Sardinia: Olbia in the north east, Cagliari in the south and Alghero in the north west.

Sardinia is an island that allows you to truly experience the very essence of Mediterranean life. The cuisine offers a rich repertoire of dishes, heavily influenced by the country’s various neighbours including Corsica and Italy, accompanied by impressive local wines. The mixing of game and farm produce (traditional with inland towns) and fish and seafood (traditional with coastal towns) result in a combination of flavours and appearance that is unique to Sardinia.

Sardinia has something for everyone from the jet set world famous Costa Smeralda, with
breathtaking scenery and exclusive hotels, to the unspoilt south coast with many deserted beaches and Caribbean-like turquoise sea. Wherever you are in Sardinia, there will be a stunning coastline with beautiful bays and beaches, vibrant yet uncommercialised towns and villages, a mountainous interior with wonderful views of the island, refreshing lakes and waterfalls, and an interesting history.
