Sardinia – A Dazzling Wonderland

A dazzling wonderland fringed by powder-soft sand and a translucent emerald sea. Forte Village Resort in Sardinia is magic.

Award after award has been heaped on Forte Village; rightly so as it is the ultimate family destination in the Mediterranean.

Under a shady canopy of pine and palm trees, this sprawling village-style resort is set in acres of luxuriant banana trees, flamingo ponds and colourful sub-tropical gardens. Nestled amidst this gorgeousness are eight superlative hotels; from secluded beachfront bungalows to fabulous family-friendly accommodation, you are definitely spoilt for choice. You can have lunch and dinner in a different restaurant every day of the week if you so desire. Like a journey around the world the cuisine is infinite in its flavours, from traditional Sardinian to Japanese, Indian or Brazilian; there are simple beachfront eateries, pizza and pasta joints, spectacular buffets and extraordinary fine dining. For nocturnal action head to the Piazza lined with fashionable boutiques or sip a Mojito at the beachside Blue Moon Jazz Bar.

Days are filled with endless possibilities; a luxury play zone with go-kart track and ten-pin bowling, tennis coaching by stars, innumerable pools and a raft of watersports. The swanky Thalassotherapy spa deserves a special mention. Tucked away in a quiet corner, it is an enclave of serious pampering and therapeutic relaxation.

Family holidays will never be the same again; peace and luxury for parents whilst children have a really, really good time.
