Crystal-blue turquoise coves, white-sand beaches, enigmatic Bronze Age ruins, and a rugged rural interior where time seems to move more slowly.... Sardinia is just a short flight from Italy’s mainland, but the island’s fiercely independent culture makes it feel like another world. The local language, Sardo, is largely unintelligible to Italian speakers, and even the calendar is different — the new year starts in September. Our specialists have explored from the yacht-filled marinas of Costa Smeralda to the sandy stretches of beach around the capital city of Cagliari, and can help you get to know this often-overlooked island destination on a Sardinia holiday.

In Barumini, you might delve into the prehistoric Nuragic ruins that litter Sardinia, followed by a tasting of some of the island’s singular wines. You can also explore Sardinia’s distinct cuisine on a private tour of the capital. Perhaps you’d like to meet a shepherd and watch traditional cheese-making traditions, or prefer to simply loll on the deck of a private boat as you soak in the sun and views around La Maddalena. This is a multifaceted island and we can help you explore the aspects that interest you the most.
