Off the beaten track in Sardinia

29th January 2010 Print

New for 2010, Just Sardinia has created ‘Secret Sardinia’ which features personally chosen hideaway hotels to sample real Sardinian hospitality.

Last year the company explored the island from north to south and east to west in search of new hotels, resorts, villas and little secrets to experience real Sardinia.

The collection includes little gems that are not well known, usually family run and offering a warm welcome and plenty of local knowledge. The hotels are built in keeping with local architecture, with use of local materials such as granite, wood and wrought iron and furnished with local handicrafts and hand woven fabrics. The restaurants serve typical Sardinian cuisine using locally grown and produced ingredients with chefs creating local specialities and of course serve Sardinian wines such as white Vermentino and red Cannonau.

Just Sardinia’s secret recommendations in special locations include:

Hotel Valkarana
