Central Sardinia

Wild and remote, the landscapes of Central Sardinia are spectacular, with valleys, gorges, canyons, forests and towering mountain peaks.

It could be said that if you were to go looking for the ‘real’ Sardinia you would head for the mountainous heart of the island – here is where you will find the rural Sardinians living life much as it was at the turn of the last century. The coastal part of this region also has some of the island’s best beaches and some stunning cliffs.
