    WHERE TO STAY

    Emerged in the nature and hidden among the hills, Petra Segreta resort welcomes its guests for a special stay or an unforgettable night out. Located within a 5 minute drive from the main piazza of San Pantaleo, the former Relais & Chateaux resort boasts an incredible view of the bay: in a sunny day you can admire the islands of Maddalena, Caprera and Corsica from you room or the your dinner table.

    WHERE TO EAT

    The piazza of San Pantaleo is one of the most iconic places in Costa Smeralda and not accidentally it hosted some of the top events and weddings in Italy. The piazza offers a couple of spots for a typical Sardinian aperitivo – a glass of chilled Vermentino di Gallura white wine served with some crispy thin bread pane carasau and a selection of Sardinian cold cuts & cheeses.

    To proceed your evening there is no better place than Giagoni in Piazza – a true institution and a renowned name in Coast Smeralda. Giagoni’s vibe is a unique mix of glamour and local boho chic: the celebration of life in Costa Smeralda style. Among the exquisite positions on the menu, try the local first course – fregula with seafood which is truly divine!

    For a more rustic experience with genuine flavors of the territory, head to the countryside to Tenute la Sasima. A rich meal with local specialties like zuppa gallurese, porceddu and seadas washed with full-bodied red wine Cannonau di Sardegna is the best way to try the genuine Sardinian cuisine that despite the believes is mainly “turf” than “surf”!

A must to visit of you are looking for some good quality-price pieces in linen, silk, leather and even cashmere. Besides the outfits, the mercatino is a great place to buy some sweet souvenirs to bring back home – the irresistible soft almond biscuits amaretti and almond nougat torrone made with local honey. A tip for the visitors: come early as the place gets really busy!

    For unique and handmade pieces a must visit is Yashu & Prem boutique.
