Discover More About Sardinia
Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean, and boasts white sand, warm clear waters, stunning coastlines and a surprisingly wild hinterland … not to mention an awful lot of sheep! Part of Italy, the island retains a strong identity of its own, with an indigenous language and many native subspecies. Indeed, the island has such a rich variety of ecosystems that it has been described as a ‘micro-continent’.
Sardinia is one of the most ancient bodies of land in Europe, and has been populated from prehistory to modern times – the Bronge Age ‘nuraghi’ stones dotted about the island bear testament to the island’s earliest inhabitants.
Sardinia shares with Japan, the highest number of centenarians on the planet! A hearty, tasty Mediterranean diet of bean stews, cheeses, crunchy traditional Sardinian flatbreads, and some distinctive local brews, including beer, combined with a slower pace of life amongst delightful surroundings, makes this a beguiling place to visit … and most people want to stay a bit longer, or return, after a taste of Sardinia’s many pleasures!
