Come and explore the exclusivity of Porto Cervo...

A holiday to Sardinia can encompass many different aspects, whether that be white sandy beaches, mountainous hiking, a foodie adventure or water-based activities. If you want to indulge in luxury in all aspects of your holiday, Sardinia has that too, and Porto Cervo is a great place to achieve it.

A resort which boasts a sophisticated and stylish ambience, a holiday in Porto Cervo is ideal for holidaymakers looking for the finer things in life. Home to an exclusive marina, Porto Cervo is well-known for its summer regattas, where superyachts and sailing boats come from all over the world to compete in different events.

Porto Cervo, Sardinia

Porto Cervo itself is made up of picturesque grotto-style buildings in a variety of pretty pastel colours which climb steadily up the hillside. As you begin to wander through the streets, shop windows filled with fabulous designer wear such as Gucci and Prada and eye-catching jewellery make an appearance, along with a collection of classy cafes, bars and restaurants.

If you’d like to take a break from sipping cocktails and admiring beautiful boats, take a short walk to the west to discover the Stella Maris Church. Designed in the early 1960s by Michele Busiri Vici (an architect who became famous for his work in the Costa Smeralda region), this fresh, whitewashed building adopts a beautifully simplistic cave-like design both inside and out along with fantastic elevated panoramas – it’s certainly a most picturesque sight against a bright blue sky.
