Relais Villa Del Golfo is quintessentially Sardinian, shouting about its heritage with typical colours, décor, furnishings and finishes, with a modern twist.
In an elevated position, close to a rather upmarket residential area, and a 15-minute stroll to the resort of Cannigione, Relais Villa Del Golfo overlooks the sweeping bay. The deep blue of the sea, bordered by grassy areas and pinewoods, is a breathtaking panorama, inescapable from almost every corner of this superb hotel. Like a traditional village, built into the hillside, colonnaded pathways meander between the low-rise "cottages " and terracotta roofs and it bursts with colour.
Modern and with real style, it is quintessentially Sardinian, shouting about its heritage with typical colours, décor, furnishings and finishes, but with a modern twist. The light, usually painted, wooden furniture is so obviously from Sardinia - full of character, of exceptionally good quality and extremely tasteful. Fascinating artefacts sit perfectly against background hues of white, pastel colours, cool and marine blues, and warm corals. Such a pleasing harmony and attention to detail give Villa Del Golfo a swish elegance and a luxurious feel.
The fabulous pool sits on a stunning terrace, with a beautiful panorama of the sea. What a perfect place to relax on the comfy sofas, by the bar. Villa Del Golfo's pretty Miraluna restaurant is well known for its barbecue grill and excellent Mediterranean cuisine. It spills out onto the terraces and is very tempting at lunchtime, or for a romantic candlelit dinner. We thoroughly enjoy the food and are impressed by the creative cuisine.
An absolute must is a trip out on Villa Del Golfo's own private yacht. What a treat! It all feels rather exclusive. Captain Francesco will take you to stunning coves and bays, which you would otherwise probably never discover. He will stop off in some enchanted, secluded bay for you to have a swim and a spot of lunch on board.
Villa Del Golfo is simply not to be missed!
