These private Mediterranean pads come with secluded pools, shaded pine forests and sandy pathways leading to the sea.
Take one measure of privacy, add a sprinkling of hotel-style perks, throw in a location of immense beauty and (frankly) almost cliché good looks – and what do you get? The perfect summer holiday, of course. These stand-out villas on the nature-blessed island of Sardinia avoid all the pitfalls of a potential wrong turn, with a parade of pools, al fresco terraces and even a restaurant or two, if you want to leave the cooking to the professionals. This is an outpost in Italy, after all.
