Hotel Le Ginestre

Sardinia, North Sardinia

  • Secluded position in private parkland only 250m to the private beach with free sunbeds
  • Located 1 mile from the famous town of Porto Cervo

Hotel Le Ginestre stands in private parkland in the heart of the Costa Smeralda. While only a short drive to Porto Cervo, once inside the grounds, you will appreciate the seclusion and restful ambience of this first rate hotel. The décor is cool and understated with tasteful, comfortable furnishings. The Le Ginestre restaurant offers a wide range of Mediterranean and Sardinian specialities and the Chef Ivan Matarese adds a touch of magic to every plate.

In the delightful garden there is a tennis court, terraces and pathways edged with dazzling displays of bougainvillea and an inviting swimming pool (normally in use May to September) with a poolside American bar offering light lunches, sandwiches and small pizzas. A path down through the trees leads to the lovely private bay, which is only 250 metres away, where there is a lifeguard and complimentary sun loungers, beach towels and parasols.

The hotel has 80 rooms (official rating 4 star). Child prices apply to ages 2-12 years. Minimum stay 4 nights 24 Jul - 23 Aug

Please note - there is no lift in the hotel and therefore may not be suitable for people with walking difficulties.

About the location
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.
