About the location

In the far north of Sardinia, Valle dell’Erica is unrivalled in its location. In front of the beautifully uninhabited island of Spargi and the islands of Razzoli, Budelli and Santa Maria, the resort is surrounded by pristine beaches and untouched coastlines. Just a few steps from the Sardinian Sea, the hotel is also moments away from Santa Teresa Gallura, which boasts white sand bays, hidden coves and creeks as well as the town of Palau, which opens up to reveal the incredible Maddalena Archipelago.

For a more rural feel, Oliena, an artisan town resembling a real life painting, is nearby and home to shops selling embroidered scarves and jewels created by the exceptional local craftsmanship. The adventurous kind should head inland where rugged landscapes can be found, remote and untouched by tourism. And for those wanting to explore the area’s shopping treats, the diverse area of Costa Smeralda has an array of shopping areas, often visited by the elite and A-listers.
