Carloforte is a charming little town perched modestly on a hill, lined with elegant mansions and discreet palaces and peppered with palm trees. Many architectural elements remind us of ancient Liguria, starting with the softly coloured façades and the wrought iron balconies. It's a stunning holiday destination… just picture yourself sipping an aperitif in its shaded squares and getting lost in its alleys and staircases. Sardinia is more than a string of heavenly coves, its tourist-centred Costa Smeralda, Cagliari and hours of trekking through scrubland to reach caves... There is a Sardinia that remains undiscovered, superb and fierce, complementary to the one described above. Look no further and book your sailboat charter in Carloforte today!
Three reasons to choose a sailboat charter in Carloforte
1. Unique perspective of Sardinia and Italy
The island is surrounded by cliffs with sandy beaches blending into the azure sea. It is the ideal starting point for a cruise to Sardinia (west coast) or to sail to the Tunisian coast which is about 110 miles away.
2. Discover the Nuraghes… testaments to Carloforte’s thousand-year-old history
The Sardinian culture is based on its Nuraghic civilisation, which appeared around 1800 BC. This gives life to a very complex social structure organized around the famous "Nuraghi" that you can find scattered all over the island. Sardinia has about 7000 of them! The Nuraghi are groups of dwellings, with walls surrounded by stone towers. Su Nuraxi of Barumini, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, is the best known of the Marmilla. But the region has many other interesting places to visit, such as the Cuccurada Nuraghe in Mògoro.
3. A charter destination that’s easy to reach!
You’ll need to first fly into Cagliari-Elmas Airport and then take a regional flight to Saint Pietro Island. Cagliari airport is well serviced by major European air carriers so getting to your sailboat charter in Carloforte should be pretty straight-forward.
