The second-largest island of the Mediterranean, Sardinia is an exotic paradise, perfect to visit from early spring to early fall, when everything is bright and full of authentic flavors. This is an island of contrasting lifestyles, with a rich Catalan legacy mixing with African influence by proximity. From Cagliari to Sassari, from Bosa to Olbia, the island welcomes you with traditional Italian hospitality, and a wealth of things to see and do.

Stay.com Editors' Note

Tacchi d’Ogliastra is a national park in the province of Ogliastra, widely considered one of Sardinia’s most beautiful wild preserves. The park takes its name from a formation of limestone rocks that resemble heels (tacchi). Among these, Perda Liana is Sardinia’s most famous natural monument.

Tacchi d’Ogliastra spreads over 28 sq. km., with limestone formation reaching Ulassai, Osini, Gairo and Ussassai. The park is a natural habitat for many animals, including wild boars, mouflons, golden eagles, vultures and many others.

For those interested in archeological discoveries and local history, there are several nuraghi to visit, and 4 giants' tombs.
