The Costa Smeralda was born in the early ’60s, when a group of international investors who were fascinated by the beauty of this coast decided to buy the land closest to the sea in this wild area of Gallura; the result was one of the best-executed projects in the history of tourism.
Holiday homes in Costa Smeralda
The Costa Smeralda, part of the municipality of Arzachena in North-Eastern Sardinia, spans for approximately 20 Km, in a coastal area characterized by the presence of a multitude of small bays, coves and small beaches. In the proximity of this coastal area there are some islands, which are normally uninhabited and wild; amongst those, the most well-known are: Li Nibani, Mortorio, Le Bisce, le Camere, Soffi, the Piana island and the splendid La Maddalena Archipelago.
The village of Porto Cervo, synonym of luxury and jet set, is the hearth of the holiday homes in Costa Smeralda. The hamlet springs around a deep and sheltered natural bay, whose coastal outline recalls a deer’s shape. The “Vecchio Porto” (old port) was built on the eastern side, whereas on the opposite side and in more recent times, the “Marina Nuova” (New Port) was built. The Marina Nuova features modern wharfs and a number of services dedicated to naval traffic.
Over the years, around Porto Cervo, other residential, hospitality-focused and commercial areas were developed. These are known as Capriccioli, Cala di Volpe, Pevero Golf, Romazzino, Pantogia, Abbiadori, Liscia di Vacca; here the holiday homes in Costa Smeralda abound.
Here in Costa Smeralda you’ll find some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, amongst those: Spiaggia del Principe, Cala Granu, Romazzino, Piccolo Romazzino, Capriccioli, Liscia Ruja, La Celvia, Grande Pevero, Piccolo Pevero and Li Itriceddi.
All beaches are characterized by white or granite pink sand and emerald crystalline water: true corners of paradise surrounded by the green of the Mediterranean vegetation, and its unforgettable scent. A scent that when you return to the island, while disembarking from a flight or the deck of a ship, will bring back the memories of a wild and unspoiled land that always leaves a mark inside.
With its crystal clear water and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, in a short time this area has become one of the favorite destinations of the international jet set but, at the same time, with the expansion of the real estate offer of holiday homes, holiday apartments, B&B and holiday farms, anybody can choose to rent one of the holiday homes in Costa Smeralda to enjoy their well-deserved vacations.
