Forte Village Sardinia: as glitzy as it gets.

If you’ve won the lottery or just fancy living the high life for once and are prepared to pay for it, Forte Village on the south-eastern tip of Sardinia, is for you. This honeypot resort in the middle of 60 acres of lush parkland is geared for the European jet set, including new seriously wealthy Russians.

The resort’s private beach with sugary white sand and azure waters, along with numerous swimming pools, are reminiscent of the Caribbean and there are 20 restaurants serving the very best of Italian food to keep you happy, reports the Daily Mail. The fact that there are 1,000 staff for 1,100 guests, says much about the service, which can’t be faulted.

Burn off the calories by joining one of the available activities such as pedalos, scubadiving, tennis, rally-karting and bowling, then wind down in the spa with a thalassotherapy session while the kids are being entertained at the Chelsea FC football school. But check the prices before climbing into your kart. Morning and afternoon pool aerobics are free but hiring a tennis court for 45 minutes or a day’s bike hire will set you back £21. On the other hand, food prices compare well with restaurants elsewhere on the island.

Seven nights half board at the up-market four-star Il Villaggio, Forte Village, is £2,389 for a family of four, including flights and transfers. Call 0844 415 1956 or visit citalia.com for more details.
