Luxury Sardinia Holidays

White-sand beaches, historic towns and rural ruins


Sardinia takes you to golden sandy beaches and glamorous towns on one of Italy’s most popular Mediterranean islands. It offers cultural influences from fascinating Mediterranean cultures which perfectly blend with its laid back atmosphere to make this the ideal spot for a relaxing holiday. Couples will love the colourful Venetian houses and little fishing villages which can be found dotted along the coastline, while families will enjoy beaches and lots of activities. When it comes to exploring, there are forested mountains and Bronze Age ruins just waiting to be discovered.

There is a fantastic selection of towns to choose from in Sardinia. Palau is a lively port town where you can wander through pretty streets, ducking into boutiques, restaurants, and friendly bars along the way. It’s also perfect for those wanting to book boat trips and explore nearby. Chia is on the south coast and has some of the island’s best beaches, which are lapped by crystal clear waters.

Baia Sardinia
For relaxing holidays in Sardinia look no further than Baia Sardinia in the north of the island. With a pristine coastline and unique culture, this is island living at its best. 

The southern village of Chia is for beach connoisseurs, thanks to a coastline that’s a smorgasbord of dune-backed sands, rocky coves, tower-topped headlands and seaside lagoons.

Forte Village
The Forte Village Resort doesn’t do things by halves. It stars luxe villas, nine pools, a thalassotherapy spa, family-friendly academies, a go-kart track – and a beachside restaurant by Gordon Ramsay.

The seaside town of Palau burrows into the craggy far north of Sardinia, where dramatic coves, quirky rock formations, and the wild Maddalena Archipelago sculpt the coastline.

When to go

Sardinia is a summer destination, with the season generally running from May to early October. Temperatures are at their hottest in July and August and this is when the towns and beaches are at their busiest. However, Sardinia also enjoys a mild climate in spring and autumn with temperatures rarely going beneath 20 degrees which makes it perfect for visiting at the beginning or end of season too. May, June and September are ideal months to visit for those wanting to avoid the busiest crowds and still enjoy warm weather. 

Visa Information

British citizens do not currently require a visa to visit Italy. 


When you dine out in Italy, you will generally be charged a coperto (cover charge), which is for the bread, tablecloth, cutlery, etc. Tipping in Italy is not customary, but is always appreciated. 

Introduction to languages

The official language of Italy is Italian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
