Valle Dell Erica Resort Thalasso Spa

Valle Dell Erica Resort Thalasso Spa,  Sardinia  Italy

★    ★    ★    ★    ★

Originally created to accommodate German students in the late 1950s, this idyllic resort has developed into a top range property offering a wealth of facilities surrounded by stunning seascapes looking out to the nearby islands. Multilingual staff catering for all ages attend the children’s club and the baby-care centre is open 24-hours a day enabling parents to help themselves to the special food and drink for toddlers. Some choose this property for the extensive wellness-centre with its outdoor pools, others for the 7 adjoining beaches and coves.

Exterior

The country lane, bordered by traditional stone walls, runs across rocky and arable farm land before edging around a low cliff, with panoramic views across the gulf, ending at a gated car park, the only indication of the property beyond. Golf carts run 100m further up the tree bordered drive, winding up to a rockery fronted 2-storey high portico above the largely glass fronted entrance terrace furnished with conservatory-style wicker chairs. Single-storey rooms are located in terraces, set back 100 to 200m from the shore up the slight hillside in 3 different areas and most with terraces looking out to the islands.
