Resort Valle dell'Erica Thalasso & SPA *****
In front of the Maddalena National Park and the islands of southern Corsica sits a wonderful resort that faces a stretch of coastline that is free of buildings and structures of any type for 1.4km. The beach is open to everyone, umbrellas and sunbeds can be rented and there are creeks and sea water and fresh water swimming pools to be enjoyed here, even by children since there is a specific children’s pool. No matter what sort of contact guests want to have with water, there is no request or guest that cannot be satisfied.
This property, which sits in an isolated and very calm zone, offers an even more exclusive area inside the resort: the ‘Licciola’ area boasts a large swimming pool and natural rocks and waterfall, two bars and two restaurants, as well as the original ‘Erica’ area and the ‘Exclusive’ area which is dedicated to guests and children over 6 years old, who can make use of the children’s swimming pool.
The resort’s spa expands over an area of 1600m² made up of water, granite, nature and well-being. ‘Le Thermae’ is one of the main attractions at the resort thanks to the Turkish bath, sauna, relaxation area, gym, 15 massage and treatment booths and, above all, the precious sea water. This untouched water, thanks to the currents of the Strait of Bonifacio, feeds the 4 multifunctional outdoor swimming pools, which are all heated to different temperatures for thalassotherapy.
The spa also proposes a range of well-being packages: the Silhouette and Silhouette Plus in Sardinia packages, which include following the Dukan diet, the Thalasso Special Discovery, Check In & Check Out, Relaxation Man, Well-being of the Back, Thalasso & Spa Journey, Vitality and Harmony, Light Legs, Expecting Mother Le Thermae, Zen Attitude, Sardinia Sea Beauty, Male Beauty and the Brazilian Beauty Ritual package. Guests can also choose from single treatments ranging from scrubs and hydrotherapy treatments to seaweed and mud wraps or hydromassage baths, and aesthetic face and body treatments.

The room types available in the ‘Erica ’ area are double, standard, classic, classic wellness (next to the spa), Erica junior suite, Mirtilla junior suite, 6 Giglio and Orchidea rooms within the spa and the sea view Spargi president room .

Breakfast and lunch are served as buffets, whilst, for dinner, guests can choose between the restaurant where chefs prepare the food in front of them and serve it buffet-style or the table service restaurant. Guests who smoke may prefer the Nautilus restaurant which has a smoking room, whilst those who want to try out the authentic cuisine from Galluria can dine at the restaurant specialised in this cuisine (at an extra charge). During the warmer months it is also possible to dine on the beach and consume grilled fish that is caught on the same day (upon reservation and at an extra charge). Gluten free dishes are also available and guests are kindly asked to request them when booking.
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.
