Lying on the most strikingly romantic stretch of Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda, the Hotel Cala Di Volpe, A Luxury Collection Hotel, was designed by architect Jacques Couelle to resembles a charming fishing village. Its towers, terraces, irregular roofs and porticoes blend beautifully with the natural landscape of rosemary bushes and rockroses. Delightful vistas of distant mountains, pristine white sand beaches, and the translucent seas of the Mediterranean make for unforgettable views.
