Our next destination was Sardinia’s west coast, called Costa Verde for its lush greenery. After making a few stops to explore the mainland and take several dips in the sea during what was in effect a heatwave, we arrived to our home in the dunes.
Sometimes life is most beautiful at its simplest. While I do love five-star luxury, this was a different type of star setting. We slept in what resembled a cabin with a view of the sea, dining on local cheese, bread and wine beneath a sky filled with stars. And if you looked closely enough you may just find one falling. We did.
In the morning we ran down to the sea for a swim on a completely deserted beach. THIS was paradise defined.
We spent the day on the beach taking shade beneath an umbrella and cooling off in the refreshing sea.
Night fell and with the setting sun we continued on to our last destination, one of Sardinia’s most picturesque.
