Costa Smeralda- that sounds like a turquoise blue sea, dream bays, crystal clear water -and priceless luxury; for years the Costa Smeralda stood for exclusivity, luxury and was considered a holiday resort for managers and famous stars. In fact the holiday region between the bays of Liscia di Vacca and Cala Razzi di Junco is still the most exclusive and one of the the most beautiful of Sardinia a >. Especially in the low season you can have a luxury holiday here for attractive prices. Until the 1950s, the coastal strip was called Monti di Mola ("Millstone Mountains") and was one of the most remote areas of Sardinia and was almost only accessible by sea. Then came the offer from an international investment group headed by Ismaelite prince Karim Aga Khan, who bought the region's 55 kilometers of supposedly worthless coastline from poor farmers and built beautiful luxury resorts, villas and noble places. A very special architectural style has been developed for this, the world-famous Neo-Sardinian style with Mediterranean style elements, whitewashed walls and special areas, but also a lot of glass and natural wood that fits beautifully with the landscape.
