March to October
Forte Village, Sardinia
Nestled in 50 hectares of beautiful gardens, Forte Village sits on a long, white sand beach on the southern coast of Sardinia. This world-renowned luxury resort offers a huge choice of accommodations – there are three 4* hotels, five 5* hotels and 13 luxury villas with private pools. When it comes to the resort facilities, including sporting activities, the choice is equally as impressive, with numerous swimming pools, sports academies, a world-leading spa, up to 21 gourmet and buffet restaurants, evening entertainment, a children’s wonderland and even a charming piazza with over 40 fashion boutiques.
There is accommodation perfect for everyone as the hotels and villas are spread out around the grounds of this expansive resort – some have sea views from the balcony whilst others open out on to a terrace or patio surrounded by tropical gardens. Some are close to the beach, others closer to the spa. There are even spacious villas and bungalows that are ideal for families, some with their own butler, chef or chauffeur.
When it comes to sports facilities, Forte Village really delivers. As well as the 10 swimming pools to choose from (including a 5-lane 25m Olympic pool), there are over 20 sports academies with professional coaches and sporting legends. The Bike Academy even has professional cyclist Fabien Cancellara on hand during certain weeks and also hosts clinic weeks with top of the range bikes, expert guidance on riding technique, riding position and nutrition. Triathlon also has its own focus with its own Sprint event and Kids Duathlon in October each year. For those wanting something less active there is go-karting, cooking, DJ and magic academies if you fancy! For full relaxation, the Acquaforte Thalasso & Spa offers a huge range of treatments as well as a Thalasso circuit of six pools with saline and sea oil concentrations to accelerate detoxing (spa entry payable locally).
Climbs of Sardinia: If you’re up for a short, sharp climb, try Passo Montecani – 4.5 kilometres long with an average of 8.9% gradient but the steepest 100 metre section is 18.9%! Passo Arcu Genna Bogai provides a longer but shallower climb. Others can be accessed further to the north and east but with transfers.
Rides around Southern Sardinia: Rides in the south of the island include coastal and woodland routes, as well as tours of the Islands of Sant’Antioco and San Pietro and linear routes to Buggerru, Iglesias and Fluminimaggiore.
Exploring Sardinia: Within an hour of Forte Village there are plenty of places of interest to visit including the Caves of Zuddas, the Nora Archeological Park and the Necropolis of Montessu. For more culinary adventures, make cheese with a local shepherd or tour the local vineyards.
