Porto Cervo is the crowning jewel of Sardinia's Costa Smeralda, one of the most beautiful spots in the entire Mediterranean and home to some of the best beaches in the world. Built from scratch by Prince Karim Aga Khan and other wealthy investors in the 60s, the town has a slightly utopian feel, all shiny streets, designer boutiques, pop-up cocktail bars and a marina packed with superyachts. Our luxury villas in Porto Cervo are all located near the super trendy port with its restaurants and attractions, but are also a short walk or drive to the 80 sugar-soft beaches of the Costa Smeralda.

History and Culture in Porto Cervo
From our Porto Cervo villas, it's easy to get to one of the most famous historical sites in the whole of Sardinia, the Nuraghe La Prisgiona archaeological site.
