Northeast Sardinia with its crystal-clear water is stunning. Small beaches with white sand are paradise for lovers of relaxation and boat excursions. Relatively untouched until 1958, the year the Aga Khan was enticed by it, the Costa Smeralda (Emerald Coast) evolved into a coastal resort in the 60s.

Activities and Accomodations

Today there are two major centres: Porto Cervo, the local Saint-Tropez with its Jet-Set, luxury boutiques, restaurants, bars, nightclubs and golf courses and the quieter Porto Escondido. Both offer exceptional villas by their waterfront locations with private beach or more sober and authentic villas reflecting a true chic and relaxed holiday spirit.
