If you love golf and stargazing, then the place to stay in southern Sardinia is this peaceful hotel, with 80 Mediterranean-style rooms and an 18-hole golf course. The hotel itself offers air-conditioned classic rooms overlooking the pool or with panoramic views of Nora's Spanish watchtower, verdant landscape, and sea. Though the decor and conditions are a bit dated, rooms on the upper level are comfortable. The technically challenging fairway and greens are the benchmark
for Italian golfing—an 18-hole championship course, 9-hole Yellow Course, and Dan Williamson Golf Academy is open for all levels and ages. Relax in the atmospheric clubhouse after practicing swings in the driving range. For beachlovers, there is a free shuttle service to a local private beach, however be prepared to wait coming and going. The locally recognized restaurant here serves creative Mediterranean cooking.
