The village and your stay
Rafael Neville Count of Berlanga is a Spanish nobleman who fell in love in the 60s of the granite rocks of Gallura and here decided to found the small village that now bears his name. Who had the chance to live those years, still remember the unpaved roads, no electric lights and phones and the atmosphere of joyful freedom. Still no hotel or larger apartment building, only the exclusivity of villas surrounded by 150 hectares of Mediterranean vegetation, camouflaged among the rocks. And only 40 km from Olbia, in front of the beautiful scenery of La Maddalena Archipelago.
This small and glamour village offers the tranquility of an exclusive holiday: the aperitif in the Piazzetta on the beach reachable only on foot is unforgettable. Here you can dine under the stars, listen to music, dance with friends or go shopping in the small boutiques full of charm.
Sportsmen will find a tennis court and the Yacht Club with structure for scuba diving and sailing courses. From the small harbor that is home to the beautiful sailboats and yachts from around the world, you can also sail with a rubber dinghy to the discovery of the La Maddalena Archipelago Marine Park. Or rent a boat with sailor who will accompany you to discover small bays surrounded by the granitic rocks in the natural heritage of the most beautiful in the world.
The efficiency of the “Consorzio” ensure doctors, a security service 24 hours on 24 and plans an interesting program of cultural activities in the Piazzetta that is transformed into an open air theater.
