Your exclusive holiday in the heart of Costa Smeralda
Porto Cervo is the prestigious centre of Costa Smeralda, on the northeastern coast of Sardinia. Eccentric and trendy, Porto Cervo was a fishermen village transformed into a luxurious tourist destination in the 1960s by the prince Karim Aga Khan IV, who fell in love with this beautiful coastline of Gallura. Sea, splendor, VIPs, yachts and nightlife are the main features of Porto Cervo, favourite destination of the international jet set. Its inhabited centre developes around the panoramic terrace of the famous Piazzetta and the Church of Stella Maris, with its many alleys and streets full of boutiques, jewelry stores and trendy restaurants.
Porto Cervo can be reached from the airport of Olbia, 30 km far, or from the harbour of Olbia where many ferries from Genova and Civitavecchia land. The modern harbour of Porto Cervo is one of the best of the mediterranean sea, with 700 landings, and hosts the Yacht Club Costa Smeralda that organizes the most engaging regattas.
