A stylish village-style beach hotel in the south of Sardinia
White-sand beaches, immaculate grounds, dozens of restaurants and more pools than you can count on one hand – welcome to Forte Village, Sardinia.
This 55-acre resort on Sardinia’s pristine south coast has enough to keep you busy for weeks. On the sporting front, there’s everything from golf to basketball, with first-rate academies for kids to get involved with (the Chelsea Football Academy is a favourite). Children have also got a huge area to themselves, with games and activities to try out – they even get their own dedicated restaurant. Nine swimming pools are scattered around the gardens, and the whole resort is fringed with a spectacular sandy beach.
The cherry on top? The vast spa – it’s a member of the Leading Spas of the World.
Flight time from the UK to Sardinia is around 2 hours 30 minutes.
Transfer time from Cagliari airport to Forte Village is approximately 45 minutes.
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.
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.
The official language of Italy is Italian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
