The beauty of nature and the exclusive services on offer are two of the hotels main points of charm and attraction. Its exclusive position, on a beach just a few kilometres from Palau, nestled amongst olive vines and junipers, is undoubtedly what gives the hotel its air of beauty and romance, and this is further complimented by details, services and original and enjoyable itineraries designed around relaxation and harmony.

Some of the hotel’s services and facilities:
The main attractions in the surrounding area can be reached easily via boat trips, from the islands of the Maddalena archipelago to the Emerald coast and Corsica, the south of which boasts places of great charm such as Bonifacio and the island of Lavezzi. On the Emerald Coasts, the main point of interest is, of course, the wonderful and characteristic Porto Cervo and its small roads that are filled with flowers and famous squares where you can enjoy tasty aperitifs. A visit to Palau is also a must, where, during the summer, a typical little market is set up, as is the uninhabited island of Caprera which is home to Garbaldi’s house and tomb, whilst on the west coast of Sardinia you can find Alghero which gives you a great insight into the Catalan culture which has survived here both in terms architecture, as can be seen in the centre, and language. Lastly, the hinterland of the Gallura region is rich in splendid little towns nestled in beautiful mountainous landscapes, and here you can enjoy ancient traditions and a prestigious cuisine.
