There is so most some-more to Sardinia than a Emerald Coast

January 17th, 2016 by admin | Filed under Blog.

Many of us have listened of Sardinia’s glitzy Emerald Coast, where a sea is some-more shining immature than blue, a beaches as good as a Caribbean’s and a yachts on a standard with those in a South of France. 

But what about a rest of this Italian island?

On a highway trip, holding a wiggly track from south to north, we find it full of splendidly sundry landscape and appealing villages decorated with bunting as if available a party.

We start in Chia, in a south, with a stretches of beaches, renouned among Italian families. These are an easy expostulate from a capital, Cagliari.

There are so many stretches of silt from that to choose, we could spend a week picking your favourite. 

Tuerredda is full of life — trinket sellers, a family throwing squid for supper, pedalos and an island to circumnavigate. But we like a hilly grey coves beyond.

We are staying inland, during Villa Del Borgo, that has prettily landscaped drift and feels remote, yet it’s usually dual miles from a nearest town, Pula.

Pula’s pull (for me during least) is a poetic Palladian-style villa, frustratingly sealed to a public, inexpensive leather handbags (around £40) and gelato.

Sardinian food is fuss-free and generous, with fry pig a speciality — this pleases my boyfriend, Rob.

Fine dining doesn’t seem to be a large understanding here, so he is distrustful when we advise a tasting menu charity a complicated take on Sardinian cuisine, down a highway in Nora. 

But Fradis Minoris, on a separate between a sea and a lagoon, is a special spot, even if a menu is rather foamy.

And Nora itself is interesting. It’s a Roman site where church columns still mount and mosaics adorn dry floors.

The aged city is easy to navigate and we can get an overview from a 14th-century Tower of a Elephant. It was once a jail and is still daunting.

At a tip of a aged city is Piazza Arsenale and a archaeological museum, full of obscure descriptions of Nuraghi, statues found during a island’s pre-historic sites.

Nuraghi is also a name given to a sites in a centre of a island, one of which, Su Nuraxi, is Unesco rated. It is a wonder. 

And squeezing by dim tunnels into murky mill bedrooms might spin children’s heads to history.

It’s a rambling tour to a subsequent stop and a perspective — olive tree patterned slopes, neat fields and hulking dogs, is frugally beautiful. 

D.H. Lawrence pronounced Sardinia was uncaptured by civilisation, and here that rings true.

Hotel Su Gologone is a bright, independent love-in, set in a inhabitant park where we can stand into immeasurable limestone caves filled with cold atmosphere and knobbly stalactites.

We also trek, following cairns into a mountains, and marvel during a views of a hollow corridor. Except for a procession of a German Land Rover club, we don’t see another soul.

Were we staying longer, I’d have got stranded into a paints in a art studio room, yet it’s onwards and upwards to Sardinia’s honey-pot north shore.

The Emerald Coast is each bit as glamorous as Amalfi, yet with improved beaches. The Italians cheerfully park during a corner of a towels. 

But there is room for everybody — either we wish a hulk sandy widen with flicking breeze (Cala di Volpe), a perspective of super yachts (Golfo Pevero) or boulder-strewn coves on La Maddalena and Caprera, islands in a archipelago, a 20-minute packet from Palau.

The intelligent Relais Villa del Golfo Spa, in Cannigione, where lapse visitors settle in for a pampering, overlooks a sea, and a poolside patio is only a mark for an aperitif.

You can simply ramble into Cannigione. On a final night we find a low-key place, Tavola Azzurra, and take a list subsequent to a integrate of aged group cheerily eating plates of tomatoes. 

Heaps of seafood pasta and calamari slapped on cosmetic plates, jam-packed tables and a loud Italian throng — all for underneath £40. We adore it.
