This beautiful island is to be enjoyed all year round….Sardinia is not just an Island to visit in July and August….
The island is constantly changing throughout the year; to experience these changes is a privilege. So it might be worth ‘thinking out of the box’, and planning your visit to the island out of the main holiday months of July and August. Then the island is given back to the Sardinians and to nature….summer generally lasts for 6 months from the beginning of May through to the end of October

This is also the time for sporting events such as regattas, rally driving and polo.
