Purpose-built in the 1950s by renowned architects, Porto Cervo is an elite seaside resort and the heart of the Costa Smeralda. Despite having less than 500 inhabitants, Porto Cervo has flourished to become a leading name in Sardinia for those looking to enjoy the luxury lifestyle.
Porto Cervo maintains a sophisticated ambience that few other Sardinian towns can match. Visitors will discover several glossy museums, like the MDM Museum which showcases popular modern artworks, as well as numerous excellent restaurants that range from affordable to high-end. Those seeking to get out and explore the local area will find several attractions within easy reach, including the fun Gregoland playground and the beautifully simplistic Stella Maris church, which also provides glorious views over the town.

When to go
Sardinia is a summer destination, with the season generally running from May to early October. Temperatures are at their hottest in July and August and this is when the towns and beaches are at their busiest. However, Sardinia also enjoys a mild climate in spring and autumn with temperatures rarely going beneath 20 degrees which makes it perfect for visiting at the beginning or end of season too. May, June and September are ideal months to visit for those wanting to avoid the busiest crowds and still enjoy warm weather.
At the current time, British citizens do not require a visa to visit Italy.
