On the north of the island, discover the striking Roman architecture of Olbia, or the scenic views from Cabu Abbas. This stoic ancient ruin is set upon a hilltop providing panoramic vistas across the Sardinian countryside. You may even be able to spot the nearby Maddalena Archipelago. Jagged coasts, wind-hewn rock and water erosion have shaped these seven heavenly islands into astounding natural forms. The archipelago is a designated marine reserve.
The nearby islands of Spargi, Budelli, Razzoli and Santa Maria are all uninhabited. Their coastal reefs make them an ideal site for swimmers, snorkelers and scuba divers. Hire a yacht and enjoy an afternoon of indulgent relaxation right out on the water, anchored away from the hustle and bustle of Sardinia’s mainland.
Sardinia isn’t just about sea and sun, though. If you’re feeling the need to leave the comfort of your luxury Sardinian villa, we can recommend a little retail therapy in the island’s exciting and stylish capital city, Cagliari. Here you’ll find stylish designer stores, fabulous restaurants and countless small cafes. It’s also home to one of Italy’s most famous Roman amphitheatres and a fortified city centre that begs to be photographed.
