III Gala Dance in the Wind

On 30 July 2023 Santa Teresa hosted for the third year the most awaited dance event: The Gala of Dance in the Wind, which arrived at its third edition and was even more exciting and full of energy than the previous ones. A breathtaking show, in a dream location in the north of Sardinia, with artists from all over the world who gave us a unique show. Also this year Yachting in Sardinia had the honor of being the main sponsor of this event, organized by the first dance school in Santa Teresa, led by Rossella Cardo, who has always had the aim of bringing artists closer to the world of international dance since 1985, the year of its foundation.

Nautical hotel, the perfect solution for tourism of the future

Nautical hotel, the perfect solution for tourism of the future

The idea of using boats for a new type of accommodation on the sea looks towards a wide range of tourists who love nature and seek engaging experiences

On October 7th the First Mediterranean Nautical Convention has been organized in Olbia by Assonautica North Sardinia and Chamber of Commerce of Sassari: it took stock on the issue of “Nautical Hotel- the nautical tourism of the future, sustainability and innovation”. An event born to allow the operators of the nautical industry to debate by analyzing the current situation but most of all by establishing routes of future development on the issue of the nautical hotel. As a matter of fact Sardinia was the first region in Italy to regulate this brand new type of accommodation: the definition of nautical hotel is based first of all on the presence of a network of at least 7 pleasure crafts for no less than 50 “cabin berths”, connected to a central structure that is no longer simply harbour related but in which tourists can stay and find all those services you can find in a hotel, from concierge to catering. An idea that goes beyond the simple rental business and that looks at that segment of tourism that not only in Sardinia asks to be welcomed. Boats can of course sail, cruising up to three miles during daylight hours.


REAL HOTELS BY THE SEA

“When we talk about nautical tourism- explains Giovanni Conoci, president of Assonautica North Sardinia – there are some preconceptions. It is thought to be a market reserved for a few experienced boaters, instead it is a tourism for everyone. Of course the boat must be able to accommodate the customer, while maintaining the ability to navigate.

The nautical hotel also has another great advantage: it can give the possibility of increasing the accommodation capacity without expanding the buildings on land, where services are provided by marinas. A cabin of a boat can be compared to a hotel room, since the proposal is to assign the same classification of hotels and a price linked to the seasonal period. Framing this activity allows you to go from being a mere charterer of boats to an entrepreneur who does the hotelier offering services and a much better welcome. Winning for the territory and for the final guest. Certainly companies must be at the forefront and also the human resources adequate : tourists today ask those who receive it an increasingly high competence, even in the territory”.

“Working on the nautical hotel – adds Andrea Ratti, professor of nautical design at the Design Department of Politecnico di Milano – means working to increase the receptivity of a destination without impacting on the territory but with a new type of housing solutions that may be attractive to a wider audience, customers that goes beyond that of experienced boaters towards a wider range of tourists for whom navigation is not central but at the same time loves a true contact with sea and nature. But they go increased with the services and infrastructures and a net of light and diffuse port that allows with this model to function. We need functional structures that are consistent with the territory and with a correct impact with both social and environmental sustainability. Important are the characteristics of the boats that today are designed primarily to have performance in navigation, while in the case of the nautical hotel the priority would be hospitality, having as tourist users looking for an experience of life on the water and not of exasperated navigation”.

Sliding gently from the river to the sea.

Armed with a canoe, a paddle and a backpack containing everything you need for an unforgettable experience. Sardinia offers you activities to complement the relaxing time you spend on the beach, like canoeing and water trekking. You can set off from the fluvial areas: along the Tirso, where numerous kayak excursions are organized, through the Cedrino lake, with its calm waters and sheer walls of greenery, or along the winding Posada rivulet, in the Tepilora regional park , until you ‘flow’ into the enchanting Bèrchida oasis.The eastern coast, particularly the gulf of Orosei in the waters of Cala Gonone, is the perfect place for kayaking enthusiasts who wish to paddle along and discover the coast. The silence, the bewitching sound of the waves, the unusual landscapes and the underwater wonders of the crystal clear waters urge numerous visitors to explore the area every year. The Sardinian coasts are one of the most charming scenarios for water trekking, thanks to the numerous, spectacular coves, cliffs, caves and beaches, where you can stop off to take a breather and have a snack.

You write “September”, but you read “sea”

So far, there has been an explosion of presences and entertainment on Sardinia’s beaches. Now, however, the more seductive sea is making its début and the season will have a sensational finale. Once the hot, crowded intoxicating days become a thing of the past, you can enjoy the beautiful sea from sunrise to sunset, under the sun and in the water, still as warm as during the summer. And now, in the newly-found silence of the immense expanses of sand and secluded coves, all you will hear are the waves breaking on the shore and the vibrato sound of the cicadas perched throughout the juniper and myrtle scrubland. You can’t escape the happy combination of hints of tropical nature and coarse Mediterranean authenticity: this is the Sardinian sea in autumn. What changes behind the scenes in the summer? You will have a wide choice of places that, until yesterday, were exclusive and only bookable well in advance, rooms and bungalows on the seashore, the most delightful B&Bs and hotels de charme, and you will no longer have to wait for a table at the beach bars with your feet in the water and at the local fusion gourmet restaurants, unmissable and now more accessible. The freedom to do whatever the places inspire in the moment changes and you can think about taking a diving course in the marine parks of Tavolara and Alghero, amidst the red corals and sea fans and the captivating caves and wreckages. Planning the most exclusive sea excursions at your will is a must, as is experiencing the charm of the small Sardinian islands and the coves of the Gulf of Orosei, this time without boat traffic at anchor.

The sea, on the surface of the water

The sea, on the surface of the water

As well as extraordinary biological vitality, you will see Sardinia’s ancient history written on its seabed by the tides that once washed, discovered and again submerged the coastline during the geological eras. The rocks and the monoliths, canyons and little caves, once shaped by the rain and wind, are now submerged and covered by an extravagant marine texture, where octopuses and cuttlefish play hide and seek with divers. The same fate befell the beach rocks, the paving of the fossil beaches, which can be found at shallow depths and are fantastic to swim over wearing your mask. They too have been in and out of the sea, trapping the signs of marine and terrestrial life in their comings and goings. Now they look like ancient Roman roads where Mediterranean fish chase each other.

1. A wreckage open to all, in the heart of the Seu oasis

Seductive, as befits a wreckage, this is a tugboat that sank in the late 20th century, a hundred metres from the beach. You can reach it by swimming. One after another, you will see the pieces, the deepest at three metres, then the stern emerging from the water. The European shag, half bird, half fish, stands here. The visit doesn’t end below sea level. On the rocks, you will see a boiler, an engine, a rudder and a propeller, while what remains of the cabin is still on the beach.

2. Sciola, art on the surface of the water

The sculptor of the talking stones entrusts his ‘Madonna del naufrago’ (Madonna of the shipwrecked) to the sea, touching the souls of visitors. Divers go to see her in the shallow waters in front of the lighthouse of the Island of Cavoli, a dive that has an almost mystical flavour. Take part in the celebration in her honour, during the third weekend in July: processions of boats, prayers and songs, celebratory sirens and garlands of flowers on the sea. Dive in and you will find that “almost” is an idea that disappears.

3. Asylum for the refugees, of course

Once again, there’s not much we can do… when it comes to snorkelling, Villasimius is the master. This time the reason is a tribe of friendly tropical fish that somehow arrived here and ‘set up home’ in the shallow waters in front of the Simius beach. They settled in and are not planning to leave the warm, transparent waters and so many friends arriving by canoe, surf, paddleboard and kayak to swim and play together.

4. From the Islands to the islets, with the surface marker buoy

From Capo Figari to Capo Coda Cavallo, there are ravines that provide shelter for molluscs and cetaceans, walls coloured by sea fans, beach rocks covered with algae and multicoloured flowers where big fish graze and pinnacles and islets emerge from the waters where snorkelling is irresistible. Gallura is not the younger brother of diving, but a place where masks and flippers play on equal terms with cylinders and BCDs.

5. Well said, De Andrè!

“Forests, countryside and coastlines surrounded by a marvellous sea are exactly the Heaven I would advise the good Lord to give us”, which doesn’t end on Earth. To get there you need a mask and flippers and two islets like Spargiotello and Mortoriotto. While diving along their descents to the sea, a certain desire takes shape and next time you will find yourself diving to depths of over five metres. All you need is an open water diving course.

2nd Gala Dance in the Wind

The Culture of the Sea and the Culture of Dance come together in a breathtaking show dedicated to the art of dance with guests from the main national and international theaters.

On July 31st in Santa Teresa Gallura, our corner of paradise, this year will host the second edition of the Gala Danza Nel Vento (with the patronage of the Municipality of Santa Teresa di Gallura) which will see the participation of an exceptional parterre:
Étoiles, first dancers and soloists from the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, the San Carlo Theater in Naples, the Royal Ballet in London and Los Angeles who will perform on the stage of Santa Teresa Gallura, ranging from traditional classical repertoire to modern and contemporary pieces.

Danza nel Vento was born from the passion and tenacity of a group of girls from Santa Teresa, led by Rossella Cardo, the “dance teacher”.

Over the years, Artballet has favored the organization of trips for artistic purposes with the aim of bringing students closer to the international theater scene.

Group Y main sponsor, also this year, supports this event, now a recurring event not to be missed in the SARDINIAN summer.

Sea view hotel with zero impact: the new eco-sustainable nautical tourism

Sea view hotel with zero impact: the new eco-sustainable nautical tourism

How to enjoy the splendid sea of Sardinia. With Yachting in Sardinia by Group Y there are the “refuges of the heart”, that are exclusive boats, equipped with all comforts. CEO Della Torre: the tourism of the future will increasingly have to meet the basic needs of the individual, as well as being able to promote a new awareness in the green new deal”.

Out of the city and away from the chaos. It is the vacation that everyone, at least once, has dreamed of or dreams of doing. A summer to be framed, to get away from the hectic pace of everyday life, from stress. Often, however, dreams come true. Enjoying the splendid sea of Sardinia, far from everything and everyone, for example, is no longer an unattainable chimera. With Yachting in Sardinia by Group Y there are “refuges of the heart”, that is exclusive boats, equipped with all possible and imaginable comforts, in total privacy, ready to satisfy the desire to live in close contact with the sea and the nature.

“The tourism of the future will increasingly have to satisfy the primordial needs of the individual, as well as being able to promote a new awareness in the “green new deal” through increasingly less contemplative and increasingly experiential holidays, lived in close contact with nature and away from overcrowding in a slow path of self-discovery “. The engineer Francesco Della Torre, CEO Group Y, loves to repeat it.

 “Yachting in Sardinia – says Della Torre – has always had as own mission the development of sustainable nautical tourism. We have identified the nautical tourism of the future in the “sea glamping”. Travelers are looking for journeys that can free the mind from habits, and rediscover a primordial life where time is marked by nature without external conditioning. Sea glamping represents in the nautical field a response to the request for “self-discovering”.

“Committed to sailing on a very modern boat, you can rediscover the right route to follow step by step”, explains Group Y Ceo.

“Slow tourism is a particular form of travel which, as a basic rule, is to let us take our personal time. It began to be mentioned in times when we never thought we would find ourselves as isolated as we have been in the past two years. But as they say, “nothing happens by chance” and perhaps this desire for exploration could really bring new users closer to “sea glamping”. Tourism will change and with it the modalities, interests and expectations. This will allow us to give ourselves a different journey, based on the search for a purpose and which has as its primary objective the exploration of the territory, human relationships and even a little of ourselves. All based on a real knowledge of the environment and learned in an intelligent and sustainable way, living the travel experience in an extremely profound way and enjoying, step by step, the slowness of movement. We will create intimate connections with the environment around us and we will treasure them day after day”.

“Today slow tourism can be lived – concludes Della Torre – in a Nautical Tourism experience on a very modern sailing boat, immersed in nature and cradled by the sea, between golden sunsets and breathtaking views”.  

Group Y, we remind you, is a reality that has been operating for over 20 years in the nautical tourism sector at 360 degrees. Its headquarters is located in Olbia and currently coordinates the various sectors, among which the activity of Albergo Nautico with its 5 Nautical Bases located between Sardinia and Campania stand out; the activity of concessionaire of sailing and motor boats with the 2 showrooms in Sardinia; the shipbuilding / refittings activity with the Olbia Shipyard structure and an upcoming opening in a second structure.

The group also includes an innovative SME which, thanks to the continuous research process, is developing various innovative solutions for future application in the nautical industry sector: among these stands the EcoHYbrid Floating Apartment (EHYFA), a catamaran that combines comfort of an apartment with wind / solar energy.

The Innovative SME will create a product as comfortable as an apartment, as easy to use as a dinghy, as sustainable as a sailboat and which saves the territory from overbuilding.

Unique because, for the first time, it is designed by those who use it for tourism purposes.

The main and distinctive component of EHYFA will be its in-depth knowledge of the sector that will allow the product to be adapted to changing needs. The new vessel will integrate advanced technologies with an innovative type of floating apartment, easy and safe to use, thus extending the potential market to all lovers of the sea, not just experienced sailors.

The improvement element is precisely connected with the development of a specific product for a specific use, unlike the generalist products that the market offers at the moment. In fact, currently all the models on the market are multi-purpose and do not meet the needs of businesses or tourists. Businesses must, in fact, invest to adapt existing models and tourists must “adapt” to compromise solutions; with EHYFA, on the other hand, it is possible to purchase a specific turnkey product.

Group Y’s mission perfectly respects EHYFA’s vision through the development of sustainable nautical tourism and with it the dissemination of the Culture of the Sea.

For this reason EHYFA will be part of the BlueFEEL project, coordinated by a multidisciplinary team, experts in blue tourism and green technologies, which will support Yachting In Sardinia, project leader, in partnership with Ambiente spa, in the prototyping of the vehicle and in the launch of the innovative service for high value.

The EcoHYbrid Floating Apartment (EHYFA) today represents a great challenge aimed at developing the nautical tourism of the future as a form of innovative, eco-sustainable and experiential tourism as an alternative to traditional tourism linked to the consumption of the territory and the overbuilding of the coasts.

In a very short time and without impacting the environment, new beds can be created for tourists who are sensitive to environmental issues.

Group Y and its partners are ready for the challenge that will have to revolutionize the boating market starting from a complete redefinition of the product with the main focus on safeguarding the environment for future generations.

DESTINATIONS: ROCCIA DELL’ORSO

DESTINATIONS: ROCCIA DELL’ORSO

In Sardinia, it is not uncommon to find rocks shaped by the weather and the passage of time, taking on the appearance of living beings or forms from nature. Indeed, one of the most famous is found to the extreme north, in Gallura.

According to Victor Bérard, a writer and scholar of Homer, Capo d’Orso is the only place in the Mediterranean identifiable as being the ‘land of the Laestrygonians’, the giant cannibals who were the protagonists of the 10th book of the Odyssey and who inflicted serious defeats and forced Ulysses’ desperate escape. The hero of the tale disembarked here, near the spring of Arcacia (‘of the bear’), in search of food and water for the crew, which went onto become the local population’s “feast”. An aura of legend surrounds the cape before the La Maddalena Archipelago National Park, taking its name from a spectacular natural sculpture that extraordinarily resembles the shape of a bear seemingly nodding towards the sea. 

It is the Roccia dell’Orso (‘Bear Rock’), a natural monument visited by thousands of hikers. It stands on a granite elevation, being over 120 metres in height, watching over the nearby village of Palau, a renowned tourist resort nestled in a cove in northern Gallura, close to the Costa Smeralda.

It is located just over five kilometres from the village, reached by a half-kilometre panoramic path – of which around ten minutes is slightly uphill – setting out from the fort of Capo d’Orso, one of the many 18th-century military fortifications of Palau, including the battalions of Monte Altura and Talmone. The promontory offers a view over the entire park of the archipelago, also being associated with the area surrounding nature’s work of art, one of the most special rock formations in all of Italy. The granite rock, “carved” over millions of years by the atmospheric agents, is smoothed, seemingly dug out from the surface, with a characteristic yellow-pinkish hue.

The promontorium arcti (‘bear promontory’) has been known of since time immemorial. The shape of the bear was first noted by sailors in ancient times, with its name remaining unchanged since this time. The first historical attestation comes from the Greek geographer Ptolemy (2nd century AD) who, in addition to providing coordinates, tells of the fear that the Rock Bear induced in sailors due to being able to attract ships “like a great magnet”. It is not by chance that the stretch of sea before it contains numerous cargo ship wrecks hailing from various periods in time, confirming the intense commercial traffic throughout this area. The rock has always been a point of reference, being clearly visible from the sea and mentioned in the Portolan Charts, for the sailors who happened to venture off the coasts of Gallura and Bocche di Bonifacio.

The territory of Capo d’Orso is also interesting from an archaeological point of view due to the presence of several tombs in tafoni and a lithic industry from the Neolithic age. The Nuraghe Luchìa and Li Mizzani and Sajacciu Tombs of Giants are the other most famous sites within the Palau territory, where life revolves around tourism and the harbour, from where you can set out on a hike through the park. Granite promontories and sandy stretches alternate from one end of the coast to the other, such as that of La Sciumara (‘outlet’ in the Gallurese language) and the picturesque coastline with the Nordic atmosphere of Porto Faro. Near the port are L’Isolotto, a cove of fine white sand, and Palau Vecchio, a beach bordered by a pine forest, from where the Trenino Verde (‘Green Train’) sets out towards the innermost areas of Gallura. Continuing to the west, facing the island of Santo Stefano, the village of Porto Rafael unveils an exclusive and luxurious side of the area. Its most famous bay is Cala Inglese, known as the “Porto Rafael pool”. Extending nearby is the white stretch of Costa Serena. Then there is the indomitable beauty of Punta Sardegna and the exotic features of Cala Trana, nestled amongst the dunes, granite rocks, junipers and lentisks, being characterised by pinkish sand. To be found in the direction of Santa Teresa Gallura is the paradise of Isuledda or Isola dei Gabbiani. In fact, this is a peninsula joined to the mainland by an isthmus surrounded by the turquoise sea. Fanning out within the ‘sandy stretch’ are the Arenaria beach on one side and on the other, Porto Pollo – a dazzling beach ever caressed by the wind and the Sardinian town famed for funboardingwindsurfing and kitesurfing. Extending before the surfers’ paradise is the Isolotto Cavalli and, in the distance, the beautiful La Maddalena islands of Spargi and Budelli.

Discovering thousand of years of history on foot

Discovering thousand of years of history on foot

Slow steps, curious eyes filled with splendour and a serene soul eager for emotions… this is the way to walk through the little villages and the unspoilt nature of Sardinia, lost in an atmosphere of purity and relaxation, far from crowds and confusion. It is the intimate and authentic face of a legendary land, where you can clearly see the material and other traces left behind by historical events and by religious men that, after hundreds or even thousands of years, continue to arouse the intense devotion of walkers, pilgrims and visitors to those places. Legends, traditional rituals, knowledge linked to nature, art and food inevitably intertwine with the ancestral evidence left behind. In the wake and in the footsteps of saints and martyrs, ancient and modern, you will discover situations where past and present coexist in a time that seems to be standing still and you will be welcomed by communities for whom hospitality is sacrosanct.

Memory and devotion. Ancient paths, mule tracks and disused railways along the Santa Barbara Mining Route, the only Sardinian one included in the Atlas of Italian Routes, will accompany you between the cliffs overlooking the sea, sand dunes, woods and hills once rich in deposits, today part of the Geo-mining Park of Sardinia. At the beginning of May, Sardinia stops to commemorate the story of its warrior martyr. A solemn, majestic, colourful procession has been taking place for almost four centuries and is among the oldest and longest in the world: it can be relived all year round thanks to the Path of Saint Ephysius, from Cagliari to the little church in Nora, the place of his martyrdom, next to the ruins of the ancient Phoenician-Punic and Roman city. The itinerary that retraces the evangelisation work carried out by San Giorgio, bishop of Suelli, who lived between the 11th and 12th centuries, also starts from Cagliari, crossing dozens of small and large towns, from Campidano to Trexenta and Sarcidano, as far as Ogliastra and Barbagia.

It is the most articulated and longest religious itinerary in Sardinia, inspired by Santiago de Compostela. The Path of Santu Jacu branches out along four main roads that cross the entire Island. The Route of the Sanctuaries, on the other hand, is a major route that unites country churches that glow with lights, colours and scents during the celebrations dedicated to the saints to whom they are dedicated, preceded by novenas for pilgrims staying in the muristenes or cumbessias (lodgings). From San Salvatore di Sinis to the granite landscapes of Gallura, passing through Santa Cristina in Paulilatino, San Mauro in Sorgono, Nostra Signora di Gonare, the ‘tallest’ church in Sardinia, and San Francesco di Lula. From the hinterland to the coast: have you ever thought of circumnavigating the Island on foot? There is the Path of 100 towers. Its spiritual ancestry is evident in the myriad of rural sanctuaries scattered along the coast, but the most distinguishing feature is the system of defensive fortifications, built by the Spanish Crown, to tackle pirate raids.

An experience of discovery and cultural and spiritual enrichment in unique natural contexts. The Franciscan places in Sardinia are an ‘ideal’ itinerary that involves 15 island towns. Visiting them is a dive into the indelible traces that the Franciscan Order left behind. The ‘cluster’ includes towns like Alghero, Cagliari, IglesiasOristano and Sassari, coastal villages such as Bosa and Castelsardo, ‘spiritual villages’, such as Gesturi, Lacon and Luogosanto and other inland and coastal towns that experienced Franciscan life to the full: BottiddaFonniMoresPula and Sanluri. The typical hospitality of the Capuchin and Conventual monks and the Friars Minor adds to the air of inner peace. Accompanying this introspective dimension is the silence of the places, as well as the welcome of the people who live there and the authenticity of their traditions.

The first Franciscans arrived in Sardinia in the 8th century. Luogosanto, itself an evocative name, was one of the first places they landed – to be precise, in a hermitage of peace and silence in a cave where, they say, Saints Nicholas and Trano lived. 21 other sanctuaries bear witness to the fervent religiosity of the Luogosanto community, starting with the basilica of Nostra Signora di Gallura, famous for the privilege of receiving the Holy Door. This Gallura village is the northernmost of several ‘devoted’ places, ‘chosen’ as pilgrimage destinations in Sardinia. Each has its own distinctive features, each is linked to prominent personalities in the Sardinian Church, saints or beatified people, and each is a starting point for itineraries allowing you to discover the area. Laconi, in the Sarcidano area, is a village ‘of faith’ surrounded by woods and prehistoric remains, where St Ignatius was born and lived. The Blessed Nicola was born not far away, in Gesturi, in Marmilla.

Their birthplaces are spiritual oases and museums, with landscapes of extraordinary beauty standing out in the background.

At the foot of the Supramonte, the murals of Orgosolo tell stories of the fight against injustice. The very young Blessed Antonia Mesina, who defended her chastity to the end, became a symbol of this fight. The place in which she lost her life is now a place of prayer and reflection. Another woman, Maria Gabriella Sagheddu, contributed to the strong spiritual impact of Dorgali with her example. You will sense it in the narrow streets of the village and in its immense territory, ‘suspended’ between rugged hills and the enchanting Gulf of Orosei coast. Galtellì, a quaint village honoured by Grazia Deledda in ‘Reeds in the Wind’, is a place of veneration for los milagros (the miracle) of the Holy Crucifix dating back to 1611, kept in one of its many churches. It is also home to sos gozzos, liturgical chants that accompany walks and processions, including the one that leads to the top of Mount Tuttavista, where a huge statue of Christ has been installed.
