SNORKELING IN CHIA BAY

With its 1800 kilometers of coastline, Sardinia is a paradise for those who love diving and snorkeling. In its seabed you can discover ship and aircraft wrecks as well as archaeological finds, which now seem like they always belonged to that world.

If you are staying in South West Sardinia we recommend the Chia Bay, a golden dream beach with stunning crystal clear waters and a rich underwater world. The high sandy dunes, the charming islet of Su Giudeu just in front and a beautiful beach… What else could you ask for? Welcome to paradise!

INTENSE MOMENTS OF DEVOTION, FAITH, CULTURE AND TRADITIONS

sant'efisio 2

From 1st to 4 May 2017 experience the stunning festivity dedicated to Saint Efisio, one of the most important religious and folk events of whole Sardinia! Perpetuated for three and a half centuries this popular pilgrimage is to honor the vow made by the Administration of Cagliari in 1656 to thank the saint for having freed the city from a violent plague.

During the four days the saint is carried on foot and followed by the faithful for more than 60 km from the church of Stampace in Cagliari to the tiny church of Nora and back. The most exciting moments are the spectacular parade in Cagliari on 1st May showcasing the colorful folk costumes from all over Sardinia, the passage of the saint in Pula and his arrival in Nora.

LAY BACK AND ENJOY THE TASTE OF SARDINIA

Sardinia is not only a magic island, but a spell that gets inside you, leaving behind a unique flavor, just like the beer Ichnusa (named after the ancient name of Sardinia, Hyknusa) that is brewed since 1912 in these wonderful grounds.

Made with the waters of the natural park “Gutturu Mannu”, Ichnusa is balanced in the taste, has a pleasantly bitter note, while its color is clear and its scent discreet – a formula that adds harmony and character to what the locals call the one and only beer of Sardinia. Today Ichnusa is part of the Heineken Group.

Next time you have the opportunity, try it!

ALWAYS AT EASTER – COLOMBA DI PASQUA

For sure this traditional Italian Easter yeast bread called “Easter Dove” will not be missed on any Italian table. It’s shape recalls the dove symbolizing peace and resurrection.

The dough is soft and fragrant, rich in butter and eggs, mixed with pieces of candied oranges. The almond icing is applied before baking, giving it a sweet, crisp crust. Here is a recipe for those who want to bake it!
