Sardinia is different, diverse and unique

Sardinia is the right place for your unforgettable holidays. Right in the middle of the Mediterranean sea, between Europe and North Africa, Sardinia will offer not only wonderful beaches, but also ancient and almost uncontaminated traditions, history, music, culture, food specialties, several variety of the wines and an overall healthy lifestyle that make Sardinia one of the only 5 “blue zones” in the world, which is where is very frequent that locals live more than 100 years.

As the British writer D.H. Lawrence pointed out, after traveling through Sardinia with his wife: “Sardinia is out of time and history. This land resembles no other place. Sardinia is something else. Enchanting spaces and distances to travel-nothing finished, nothing definitive. It is like freedom itself.” (David Herbert Lawrence, Sea and Sardinia, 1921)

An island that is almost a continent“, as from the title of a book and documentary made in the 70s by Sardinian film director Marcello Serra. With more then 1800 km of coastline plus its fascinating internal areas, you will find many Sardinias: the one with the majestic granitic shapes of the rocks of Gallura, or the one with the white sandy beaches of Baronia, which are next to the Supramonte area where you can enjoy mountain trails right above the sea in the Gulf of Orosei – the mythical Selvaggio Blu (Wild Blue) 5-days trail that we will organize soon…

Also, as you will find written and tagged on the walls of many Sardinian villages, “Sardigna no est Italia” – Sardinia is not Italy. The reason for Sardinia diversity is its distance from the mainland, that has determined a different course of history compared to European mainland. After the Nuragic age, Sardinia has been invaded and exploited by the Chartagines, Phoenicians, Romans, vandals and Byzantines have reigned over the island, but they never conquered it entirely.

Even after the medieval times (the era of “Giudicati”), at the end of the 15th century, more invasions of the island occurred: the Spaniards at first, then the Savoia from Piedmont, and finally Italy… today Sardinia is an autonomous region within the Italian republic, with its own autonomous institutions such as an autonomous parliament. Sure we do have an Italian ID, but we are far from the continent and we feel diverse!
