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.

Destinations in Sardinia

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.

Santa Teresa Gallura

Santa Teresa Gallura is a bite-sized seaside town with a deep port on one side and a craggy coastline of beaches and headlands on the other.

Flight Information

Flight time from the UK to Sardinia is around 2 hours 30 minutes.

When to go

Sardinia is a great summer destination, with temperatures reaching their highest (around 30 degrees) in July and August. Temperatures in spring and autumn typically stay in the early 20s and visitors at this time of year are generally fewer, so it’s ideal if you want to avoid the crowds and do some exploring. 

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.
