Sardinia (Part 1 of 2)

Living in a land-locked country, Judith longs to spend some, maybe even most, of her leisure time by the sea, seeking out lighthouses wherever she goes… I just like the sun on my back and a bit of stone stacking!  So our chosen destination for our autumn vacation this year was the wonderful island of Sardinia.

Our first 5 nights were spent at the Domus de Rocas B&B, where we were extremely well looked after by the delightful Vittoria.  The B&B lies just south of the famous Costa Smeralda, which Wiki tells me is “the most expensive location in Europe. House prices reach up to 300,000 euros ($392,200) per square meter.”  The main town of Porto Cervo was designed and built in a typical Sardinian style though, when we visited and walked through the shopping area, it was my idea of Hell – with (so called) designer shops in every direction.  I couldn’t even bring myself to take out my camera.

By contrast, Porto Rotondo was a much more beautiful and relaxing place, with the shops and restaurants very sympathetically laid out around the picturesque harbour.
