With a size of 24,090 sqm Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea after Sicily. 1, 65 million inhabitants live on this island of approximately 270 km long and 145 km wide. Sardinia is one of the sparsely populated areas in Europe and has become a favoured destination for emigrants and people who are interested in buying a property. It is impossible to foresee when this Boom will end.
One of the most beautiful areas of Sardinia is the Costa Smeralda which deservedly acquired her name “the coast of emeralds”. The colours of the sea varying from deep green to turquoise blue, many sandy beaches along the rocky coastline and bizarre formations of Granite rocks makes this area so unique. The Prince Karim Aga Khan IV discovered Sardinia for himself in the 60´s and bought the 55 km long coastline to build up an exclusive and luxury resort for tourists. He was the one who changed the name of the coast into Costa Smeralda.
The heart of the Costa Smeralda is the small town of Porto Cervo where we opened our first shop on the 15th of June in 2007. Large parks, elegant shops and trendy clubs – that is Porto Cervo. A stroll through the most modern marina in Europe is as essential as a visit to the church of Stella Maris. For a lot of people the Stella Maris is the landmark of Costa Smeralda.
During the day Porto Cervo is a paradise for all those, who love the sun and the sea. The prestigious Pervo Golf Club with its 18 hole course is a challenge for every golfer. Also for enthusiastic sailers Porto Cervo offers lots of possibilities. Every year in October the Rally della Costa Smeralda takes place here. During the evening you can enjoy yourself in exclusive and stylish clubs under the stars with views of the sea.
The heart of Porto Cervo is the old marina Porto Vecchio. Here you can find the most popular and luxurious shopping promenade – the Piazetta. Exclusive brands like Gucci, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana and Versace are located here.
In a few words the Costa Smeralda is the representation of endless luxury with its turquoise sea, fantastic bays and crystal clear waters.
