Il Borgo Forte Village, Sardinia Italy
★ ★ ★ ★
This property consists entirely of bungalow style accommodation and differs from Il Villaggio and Le Palme by being located on a slope to one side of the resort. Spanning an area stretching 450m, it is relatively close to the Oasis pools and the Piazza Maria Luigia entertainment. Guests on prebooked meal plans dine at a venue midway along the beach which is quite a trek particularly for the rooms furthest from the shore, although credits are given at alternative venues.
Arriving at the resort’s gated entrance off the main road, the central reception area is 200m further down the tree lined drive. Upon arrival, guests are transferred a further 150m in to the grounds through the Il Villaggio area to this property’s separate reception housed in a circular, single-storey, tiled-roof terracotta-coloured detached building.
Surrounded by neat lawns, large arched-shaped floor to ceiling windows and doors lead in to the simple foyer and check-in desk.
Property type: Holiday Village
Balcony/Terrace: Most rooms
Exterior: Holiday Village
The facilities of this property are spread over a quarter of the resort. The rooms, in single-storey semi-detached stone-clad terraces are located slightly uphill from the reception and, surrounded by lush gardens and trees, reached by stairs built in to the traditional stone walls.
Breakfast and dinner is served at the Ristorante Bellavista, overlooking and midway along the beach 300m from the nearest rooms, 700m from the furthest. The 3 swimming pools at the Oasis, between 60 and 250m away, are surrounded by wide paved terraces, furnished with sunloungers and parasols, overlooked by other restaurants as well as 2 bars and the coffee shop.
The extensive facilities of the resort can be utilised including the pools at the Oasis (60-250m) and the Baia delle Palme behind the entrance (150-450m) but excluding the Piscina Castello. The Thermae del Forte spa facility is close to the entrance (150-400m).
Credits are given towards meals at alternative venues for those on pre-booked meal packages including the 5 venues around the Oasis (60-250m) and other beachfront restaurants. Other leisure facilities include the soccer fields of the sports area (150-400m) and the tennis club (200-450m) while the Leisure Land entertainment centre (200-550m), with disco, bowling and go-kart track is reached via an underpass on the main road.
There is regular evening entrainment at the vast arena at the Piazza Maria Luigia (0-350m) while the children can make use of the extensive facilities at their mini-club (150-450m).
Area Type: Situated off the main south-west coast road from Cagliari and surrounded by trees, the entrance to Forte Village is marked by an elaborate, traditional style gatehouse bedecked with trailing plants. Inside the resort, along the wooded hillside eastern perimeter, this property has a reception area close to the Piazza Maria Luigia, 800m from the main entrance. Transfer time from Cagliari Airport 45 minutes.
