Portobello is an oasis of calm: the posh holiday resort on the northern tip of Sardinia is an amalgamation of 200 upmarket villas in a landscape conservation area. The listed holiday “Houses nearby" can be booked exclusively through the tour operator La Sarda GmbH or through its partner travel agencies. Our villas Villa Massimo, Villa Marco, Villa Timu and Villa Mirto are within walking distance to the sea according to the motto: "from the bedroom into the water".
The resort faces Corsica and enchants with gorgeous beaches and the unspoiled nature of Gallura. With endless walking routes along the stunning coast, it’s a paradise for hikers, and there’s also the option to hire a boat from Portobello harbour to enjoy a romantic tour by sea. Portobello itself is home to a beautiful, small bay that is still pleasantly peaceful even at the height of summer. A restaurant and a supermarket opened during high season ensure that everyday needs are covered.
The houses in the holiday resort were built under strict regulations. For instance, every villa must have a plot of at least 3,000 square metres and contain maquis shrubs. Far from the jet-set lifestyle on Costa Smeralda, nature and beach lovers will find an undisturbed refuge amidst wild, authentic Sardinian landscape.
