The Italian island of Sardinia has almost 1,000 miles of unspoilt coastline, with hidden coves, sand dunes and spectacular beaches. It has the purest turquoise sea, and rugged interior of mountains.
It’s one of the world’s primary blue zones, a longevity hotspot, with an unusually high number of centenarians.
Sardinia is home to the glamorous Costa Smeralda, with maxi yacht regattas, groomed golf courses and designer brands, but also has a wildness and authenticity that is increasingly hard to find.
This year saw the launch of Rebecca in Sardinia Ltd, a company founded by a British national who has lived on the island for over twenty years. Rebecca in Sardinia has a unique portfolio of the best rental and sales properties on the island, not only on the Costa Smeralda and northeast coast, but also in lesser known areas. With only 1.6 million inhabitants on the second largest island in the Mediterranean, guests soon discover its inherent magic, noted by D H Lawrence in Sea and Sardinia, “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”.
Rebecca in Sardinia provides a guide to the most beautiful places to visit, from the beaches to the mountains. Clients explore the coast in yachts, swim in Caribbean clear water and dine in restaurants on the isles of the archipelago. Sardinia has a deep cultural heritage, steeped in tradition and history dating back thousands of years. There are archaeological sites in areas of outstanding natural beauty, discovered on excursions with local guides and experts. Guests are taken to vineyards in the heart of Cannonau country, to taste the wine and seasonal products that are attributable to well being and longevity.
Rebecca in Sardinia has a range of fully staffed properties to rent, often with direct beach access, always in exceptional locations. Families and groups of friends come for holidays (check availability for last minute October half term offers), and it is an increasingly popular place for remote working. Villas in low season are much more accessible, and the perfect bolthole for meetings, product presentations and creative thinking.
