Off the west coast of Italy, the island of Sardinia is a distinctive Costa Smeralda destination with expansive Mediterranean and mountain views, rich history, and is home to one of the most famous jet-setting destinations in the world, Porto Cervo. Here, Hotel Cala di Volpe was designed to recall an ancient island village. This member of The Luxury Collection of Starwood Hotels & Resorts welcomes with towers, poticoes and artfully adorned bedrooms with private balconies.
Its grounds dappled with rosemary bushes and rockroses, the hotel offers a stylish base from which to explore the area's vineyards and picturesque small towns. Play a round of golf at the adjacent Pevero Golf Club or take advantage of the hotel's onsite water-skiing school. If you're looking for history, nearby archeological ruins date back to 1700 B.C. For a peaceful day trip, visit the low-key Maddelana archipelago or the old Spanish town of Alghero.
