Family summer breaks in Sardinia, Italy
For families with a taste for old-world charm, nothing beats a break in Sardinia. Lying just to the west of the Mediterranean Peninsula, Corsica’s neighbour is a haven for lovers of great cuisine, beautiful landscapes and plain, old fun in the sun. It’s touted to have some of the finest beaches in the Mediterranean, and to see it is to believe it: Coggi, Cala Gonone and Costa Smeralda are superb stretches of pearl-white sand, leading down to crystal-clear waters. But surely Le Pelosa, not far from Stintino, is the finest. For days filled with sun, sea and sand, you won’t be disappointed, but remember the high-factor suncream: with the sun raising temperatures to a blissful 29°C, you’re going to need it.
