Hotel Cala di Volpe

Hotel Cala di Volpe,  Sardinia  Italy

★    ★    ★    ★    ★

An imposing entrance sets the tone for this attractive Moorish-style property. The intricate passages and wooden walkways connecting some of the facilities in the main building, combined with stylish furniture and delicate artworks ooze a luxurious ambience. Private launches are moored at the lagoon that runs through the grounds past the large pool deck and out to sea by the relatively small beach area. This has an appeal to couples and families wishing to be on the Costa Smeraldo but away from the main hub of activity.

Exterior

The shrubbery-lined driveway runs parallel to the back of the main 3 to 4-storey high building, which, with its terracotta and white pastel colouring and high narrow windows topped by gentle sloping tiled roofs has the resemblance of a traditional Moorish townscape. The driveway doubles back to the main road with shaded car parking to the side. The set-down area is in front of a large paved piazza-style forecourt with the entrance doors situated within a double-arched tiled portico. Accommodation is in 3-storey blocks.

Grounds

The rooms face the neatly tendered lawn and shrub gardens with views across the lagoon or pool. In the main wing, tiny multi-pastel-coloured stairways lead up to some of the rooms with others tucked away in quieter areas. A large open-air restaurant with comfortable wooden furnishings overlooks the large pool deck area, which borders the mouth of the lagoon. Surrounded by lawns and shrubberies, there are adequate sunloungers and parasols around the pool. A path leads 50m from this area to a stretch of sandy beach from where watersports are available.
