Sardinia is Italy’s best kept secret. The island is nestled to the west of the peninsula, in the Mediterranean Sea. You are sure to envy the lives of the locals, once you have landed on this raw beauty. The island in itself is one big treasure chest.

Say Cheese! Sardinia is famous for its unique cheeses. Some are peculiar textures with pungent smells, but Sardinians pride themselves on this delicacy. Tourists are sure to encounter at least one sheep during their stay. Four thousand of these woolly animals inhabit the island. This explains the 2000-year practice of Sardinian cheeses which are made with sheep’s milk - yum!
