Cala di Volpe and Porto Cervo

Take a scenic tour to Cala di Volpe and Porto Cervo to admire both nature's infinite craftsmanship and man-made luxury as well. Along the way you’ll discover vast landscapes completely untouched, its territory covering more than 50 miles of coastline. In this gorgeous terrain of rolling granite hills covered in wild olive trees, a number of amazing resorts have been developed, and now enjoy international renown. While Cala di Volpe is known for its luxury and seclusion, Porto Cervo has a bustling marina, shops and restaurants. It’s also home to some of the most expensive real estate in Italy and it's known for its glamorous A-list parties and exclusive events.

The Maddalena Archipelago

Take a tour of the Maddalena Archipelago, a collection of islands in the Strait of Bonifacio, positioned between Corsica and northeastern Sardinia. The largest island is Isola Maddalena, home to the archipelago's largest town, La Maddalena. Maddalena shares the same crystal-clear waters and wind-blown granite coastlines of much of Sardinia, while also remaining a haven for wildlife. It’s designated National Park, the Parco Nazionale Arcipelago di La Maddalena, allows us on Somma to explore some of the most beautiful scenery this region has to offer.

Cala Sabina Beach

Cala Sabina is a hidden gem, located in a small bay just outside of Golfo Aranci. It's a tranquil and secluded beach, surrounded by lush vegetation and towering cliffs. The water is crystal clear, making it ideal for swimming, snorkeling, and kayaking. The beach has soft, white sand and is rarely crowded--a perfect place to relax and unwind with a glass of crisp white wine in your hand, reflecting on the magic of the world that surrounds you.
