An atmosphere of another time on the coast of Sardinia

Le Dune Piscinas desert

Built in grey stone and golden daub, the Ecoresort Le Dune Piscinas Hotel is nestled among Europe’s highest sand dunes, which have been included on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list.

Piscinas boasts the wildest and most romantic qualities Sardinia has to offer: dunes, Junipers, Pistachia Lentiscus, Aleppo pines and a crystal-blue sea clashing in a stunning silence filled with colours and fragrances; matched only by the sunset, when the golden sand turns red and the colours in the sky inspire poetry and emotions: impossible not to be moved by its splendour!

Italy’s Ministry of Culture in 1985 declared the Le Dune Piscinas Hotel and the whole mine complex a National Monument for its particular historical interest and artistic prestige. The surrounding landscape of Costa Verde is characterized by its natural beauty: with its sequence of gorgeous beaches, rocky bays, sand deserts and the typical Mediterranean brush.

”When the air is clear and open, at dawn and dusk descends the unparalleled spell of the Dolomites; the imposing, rocky peaks of the Tofane, Mount Pomagagnon and Mount Crystal light up in a shade of pink that vibrates and stands out in the twilight of the valley. “Enrosadira” we say here in the Ladin language, which means “to become pink”; as if nature, at the height of its splendour, had been touched by a quiver and blushes with emotion.”

Nature, volcano, land and sea

Capofaro terrace sea view

Capofaro was born out of the love that the Tasca d’Almerita family have for wine and sea, a spectacular estate found on the island of Salina, designed for friends, guests and travellers of taste, providing the best in Mediterranean hospitality. Capofaro is the truest expression of Salina, a locanda surrounded by rows of vines reaching the sea, producing Malvasia, the typical wine of the island.

This lighthouse is the first sign for those arriving by night from the Tyrrhenian Sea, it is the northernmost lighthouse in Sicily, an island lighthouse, with a double reach light compared to his coastal brothers. Luigi Salvatore d’Asburgo, an adventurous explorer of this corner of the Mediterranean dedicated beautiful pages of his travel diary to this lighthouse, which later provided the inspiration for the author Hugo Pratt in the creation of his comics Corto Maltese.

The position of the lighthouse, 100m away from the entrance of the Locanda allows guests to submerse themselves in an atmosphere of refined tranquillity and absolute relaxation.
