A peaceful and luxurious retreat, just outside the glamorous resort of Porto Cervo.

If you’re in search of an exclusive getaway close to the Sardinian coast, you’re in luck. Hotel Petra Bianca is a stunning, four-star superior property found in the heart of the Costa Smeralda, overlooking the bay of Cala di Volpe.

Surrounded by well-kept gardens of Mediterranean flora, the hotel boasts a good-sized pool, with stunning views over the gardens and down towards the coast. There’s also a small children’s pool for holidaying families. To further make the most of the surrounding panoramas, the hotel is home to a relaxing piano bar, where you can sit back and relax on the terrace and admire the coast, or alternatively why not enjoy a refined à la carte dinner at Petra Bianca’s own restaurant?

Each of the 48 guest rooms at Hotel Petra Bianca are elegant and stylish, with plenty of modern conveniences such as Wi-Fi, air-conditioning and Sky TV, along with touches of traditional Sardinian style. Although all the rooms have private balconies or terraces, we highly recommend upgrading to a Superior room, from where you can further enjoy the magnificent sea views that this property affords.

There’s plenty of opportunity for guests to relax at this hotel, and by offering a free shuttle to the sands of Liscia Ruja Beach, it’s an ideal choice for beach lovers too. For those in search of more active pursuits, 2km away guests can enjoy the 18-hole Pevero Golf Club, or perhaps you’d prefer to wander the exclusive boutique shops of Porto Cervo and extend your luxury holiday experience, just 7km away. There’s also a tennis court situated 500m from the hotel.

Overall, Hotel Petra Bianca is ideal for couples or families looking to indulge in a memorable Sardinia holiday in one of the most prestigious areas on the island.

About the Local Area

ABOUT AREA

Porto Cervo is somewhat the heart of the Costa Smeralda. An up-market centre of indulgence, it is located around two yacht harbours on the north side of this dazzling stretch of coastline, and being the main resort of the area and a paradise for the jet-set, it’s definitely worth a visit. Set in the heart of the resort and lined with cafés, bars and restaurants, the "Piazzetta" is the perfect spot to lounge in style - it is the place to see and be seen. An evening stroll along the quay is also a must, with designer boutiques on one side, and luxury yachts lining the marina on the other. The posh boutiques selling fashionable designer goods such as Gucci, Versace, Prada & Hogan continue the trail throughout the pastel coloured maze of grotto-like shopping arcades within the resort. Italian architect Michele Busiri Vici designed this grotto-like creation and has a strong presence within Porto Cervo, having also designed the Stella Maris church. Elevated and situated in a craggy edge of the land, to the west of the centre, the church is something of an art deco landmark that overlooks the comings and goings of the town.

BEACHES

Liscia Ruia
An extensive sweep of white sand set down a long unsurfaced road.

Capriccioli
The Capriccioli headland has five beautiful small sandy beaches. There are facilities for boat hire and also a bar close to the beach. These beaches, including La Celvia, are amongst the most popular in the area.

Piccolo Pevero
Piccolo Pevero is a small sandy beach with parasol and boat hire. It also has a restaurant (“Il Pulcino”) and a bar.

Spiaggia del Principe
Rather off the beaten track is the Spiaggia del Principe which cannot be reached by car. The last stretch has to be done on foot takes under 10 minutes and is well worth the effort.

Pitrizza
The Pitrizza beach at Liscia di Vacca just north of Porto Cervo is also popular.

Cala Capra
Cala Capra beach just beyond Golfo delle Saline is a pretty sandy bay tucked beneath the impressive Capo D’Orso headland with its distinctive bear shaped weathered rock.
