Sardinia, a unique experience
Carloforte

Carloforte

Carloforte is the largest village on the island Isola di San Pietro. It was founded in the 18th century by a group of Ligurian coral fishers, who asked the King of Sardinia Charles Emmanuel III for permission to settle on the island, which wasn’t inhabited at that time. After being granted permission they colonized the island in 1739 and they named the town Carloforte (Charles the Strong, but also the Fort of Carlo), in honour of the king.
Over the years the village has transformed into a cosy seaside resort, whose restaurants are renowned for their tuna dishes. We recommend visiting the Piazza Carlo Emanuele.
San Pietro has a versatile coastline filled with beautiful creeks and bays. Birdwatchers may spot the Eleonora’s falcon, named after Eleonora of Arborea. The beaches of La Caletta and Cala Fico are definitely worth a visit.
