YACHTING IN SARDINIA: ITS HISTORY, ITS PRESENT, ITS MISSION

The Yachting in Sardinia charter company is aimed at tourists who want to live a sustainable travel experience, aware of preserving the terrestrial and marine environment. It is, in fact, the alternative to the overbuilding that increasingly covers our coasts, allowing us to reach hidden corners of the coast, while preserving their value. In 2018, after twenty years of activity in the charter sector, having had a vision of the growth prospects of the Eco-sustainable Nautical Tourism sector, the company decided to change gear and starting from the choice of a certifying body expert in the tourist accommodation sector (and not in the nautical sector) as CSQA, has obtained ISO 9001 certification.

Today it is the first Nautical Hotel accommodation facility in the world, with a wide range of choices between models and layouts (small and large monohulls and catamarans).

The company today offers its customers the possibility of finding the right offer for their holiday directly on the Yachting in Sardinia website where 8 offers valid only for 24 hours are available every day, for a fleet of boats that are similar in all respects and for all floating and completely eco-sustainable housing units, equipped with all comforts and divided into categories. The customer on board receives 24-hour assistance, also thanks to the SeaTutor monitoring system, and can count on a dedicated operator, ready to respond to any needs of the guest crew, giving the customer the opportunity to experience the sea in total safety.

Group Y has been investing for years in the technical set-up of its boats: from the use of photovoltaics, to the elimination of endothermic generators, to the use of watermakers, from the use of water purifiers, up to the revolutionary underwater protective impact coating ” zero”: the SeaProtector, which replaces traditional antifouling, not only improving the performance of the hull by reducing fuel consumption, but also avoiding releasing any type of harmful substance into the water.

Yachting in Sardinia is the revolution of nautical tourism.

Yachting in Sardinia is aimed at tourists who want to live a sustainable travel experience, aware of preserving the terrestrial and marine environment. It is, in fact, the alternative to the overbuilding that increasingly covers our coasts, also allowing us to reach those hidden corners of the coast, not reachable by land, but of great charm, while at the same time preserving their value. In 2018, after twenty years of activity in the charter sector, having had the vision of what could have been the growth prospects of the Eco-sustainable Nautical Tourism sector, the company decided to change gear and starting from the choice of a certifying body expert in the tourist accommodation sector (and not nautical) such as CSQA, revolutionizing its processes in an integral way and completely redesigning the operational model of the activity. It is also the first Nautical Hotel accommodation facility in the world to also have ISO 9001 certification.

The company today offers its customers the opportunity to find the right offer for their holiday by directly visiting the Yachting in Sardinia website where 8 different offers are available every day, valid only for 24 hours, for a fleet of boats that are completely similar. and throughout to floating and completely eco-sustainable housing units, equipped with all comforts and divided into categories (exclusive, comfort and standard). The customer on board receives 24-hour assistance, also thanks to the SeaTutor monitoring system, and can count on a dedicated Service Operator, ready to respond to any needs of the guest crew, giving the customer the opportunity to experience the sea in total safety.

Group Y has been investing for years in the technical set-up of its boats: from the massive use of photovoltaics, to the elimination of endothermic generators, from the use of double alternators combined with automotive-derived battery packs, to the use of watermakers, from use of purifiers, up to the revolutionary “zero” impact underwater protective coating: the SeaProtector, which replaces traditional antifouling, not only improving the performance of the hull by reducing fuel consumption, but, being totally free of biocides toxic, avoid releasing any type of harmful substance into the water.

Great beauty travels on the Green train

Great beauty travels on the Green train

On the tracks of the historic Sardinian railways time passes by slowly. Fairy-tale landscapes flow past the windows, in a unique experience that offers the perfect introduction to the most intimate and profound aspects of the island.

“At the end of a long climb, we reach a station after a stretch of solitude. Each time, it seems that nothing lies ahead, nothing is inhabited. And every time, we pull into a station.” This is the poetic description, aboard the locomotive that is today the Trenino Verde (Green Train) of Sea and Sardinia, the project dedicated by David Herbert Lawrence on his 1921 voyage to Sardinia. Following in his footsteps a century later, travellers from all over the world are attracted to this unique railway line, derived from the ‘old components’, designed and constructed between the late 19th and early-20th centuries. An Italian excellence, a unique experience comprised of four trails totalling 437 kilometres, with three sections having been operating non-stop for 130 years, including engineering and architectural works, such as bridges and tunnels. The lines, never abandoned, have been preserved and protected, connecting the coasts and hinterland, integrating such with excursions to the lakes by boat, trekking, cycling and horse riding. You can hop on the on any of the seasonal calendar days or hire it out for a group excursion – thanks to the initiative Su Trenu Antigu, aimed at enthusiasts, schools and tour operators, for an exclusive railway line!

At a leisurely pace, the locomotive glides smoothly along the rails, in the midst of lush forests, ‘choo-chooing’ along between corridors of rocks, olive groves and mastic trees, climbing with much effort to the peaks of reliefs. The sun illuminates the wooden details, the window frames glimmering, framed with damask curtains. In the early 20th century, social gatherings on wheels moved like those of elegant and distinguished society. Within, the luxury is from another era – red velvet lounges run along a corridor lit by yellow-tone ceiling lights. The on-board excursions will titillate all of the senses through the landscapes, scents and silences. There is Mandas, a medieval village in Trexenta with a glorious past, today an important cultural hub, with trains heading in two directions. The first and historical line originally reached Sorgono. Today, it crosses the Sarcidano sub-region, passing the Giara di Serri, a town famed for its Santuario Nuragico di Santa Vittoria, the shores of Lago San Sebastiano and the hills of Isili, the ‘copper town’. After having passed through lush the countryside of Nurallao, it rises up to Laconi, a village famous for Sant’Ignazio, for its castle and Marquis garden Aymerich and for its menhirs, safeguarded in the Menhir Museum – the Museo della Statuaria Preistorica Sarda. Today, it is the end of the line, completing the pathway that crosses the historic region of Barbagia di Belvì and Mandrolisai, rising up almost 900 metres.

The second Mandas line reaches Sadali, crossing much of Sarcidano and the Barbagia di Seulo historical region. On the way, you will see the villages of OrroliNurriVillanova Tulo and the hamlets of Palarana and Betilli, flanking the Lago di Flumendosa, crossed by boats in Mississippi style. A resplendent landscape of water and Nuragic structures, it is dominated by karst phenomena, such as the Grotta Is Janas, waterfalls like su Stampu de su Turrunu, and prehistoric monuments like the Nuraghe Arrubiu. Prior to the final station of Sadali-Seulo, pass by Esterzili, a mural town at 700 metres above sea level, famous for the Nuragic Temple Domu de Orgia and a bronze tablet with Roman inscriptions. From June to early September, the train toots along each weekend, also travelling the Ogliastra route. The Eastern course departs from the port of Arbatax, in the beautiful tourist resort of Tortolì. Stops along the way include the high-up stations of IlbonoElini, Arzana, Lanusei and Villagrande Strisaili, passing through enchanting panoramas like the forests of Santa Barbara and Selene. The terminus is in the depths of Ogliastra, in Gairo Sant’Elena, the town that has lived twice, with the present one having been built in the mid-20th century further upstream, following a flood that destroyed the old Gairo that is presently a ghost town.

Granite landscapes modelled by the wind and a stretch of wild olive trees, cork oaks and vineyards of vermentino vines as far as the eye can see. This is the quaint and profound Gallura traversed by train. The journey commences in Tempio, on the slopes of Monte Limbara, a gracious town rich in springs and home to the island’s most famous allegorical Carnival. The spectacle of nature change colour continuously along the journey. The locomotive stops in villages overlooking the Lago di Liscia, festooned with tourist boats. The locomotive stops in villages overlooking the Lago di Liscia, festooned with tourist boats. The train tracks run just a short distance from the coast, the line crossing the valley of Calangianus, capital of cork, then Nuchis and Luras, a town of prehistoric dolmen and thousand-year-old olive trees, including the ‘patriarch’ of Europe. From the Sant’Antonio di Gallura station, you will glimpse the geometric Arzachena countryside, its landscape threaded with vineyards. The old village station hosts a small museum. Looking out of the azure window of the terminus, Palau, famous for its beaches, military forts, the Roccia dell’Orso and the ‘gateway’ to the La Maddalena Archipelago National Park. The north-western line currently departs from Santa Maria di Corte, in the territory of Sindia, a flourishing town during medieval times built around a Benedictine monastery. After crossing the Planargia sub-region, the train reaches Bosa Marina, a coastal area in one of the most enchanting Sardinian villages, Bosa, its multicoloured houses rising up a hill dominated by the Castello di Serravalle, reflected on the Temo river. Along the way, you’ll discover FlussioTinnuraTresnuraghes and Modolo, famous for the malvasia grape variety, asphodel baskets and precious fabrics.

The tradition is looking to the future

The tradition is looking to the future

The starting point is curiosity: observing them, listening to them, mothers and grandmothers carefully choosing the ingredients, showing off their skills and performing almost ritual gestures, while patiently explaining the various steps in just a few words. Then comes the passion, the tenacity, the desire to experiment, starting by repeating what was learned and adding just the right amount of imagination. Sardinian traditional cuisine, with its distinctive local qualities providing unique sensations and flavours, takes on a new character in the third millennium: that given by the new generation of brave and talented chefs.

There are only two binding principles, namely respect for the patrimony of knowledge handed down from generation to generation and the local products. Solid, healthy foundations that have helped put several areas of Sardinia in the blue zone, the land of lively, active centenarians. As well as the inescapable typical restaurants, trattorias and farmhouses – foundations of the ‘historical’ dishes of local cuisine – there are the chefs, more or less young ones, often with a wealth of prestigious experience in kitchen teams throughout the world. Their challenge? Returning home to honour Sardinia in the world of excellent food, rethinking the culinary tradition of a unique land.

Sustainability, local products – grown in their own vegetable gardens or supplied by producers just around the corner -, rediscovering forgotten ingredients, particularly cereals, legumes and wild herbs, innovative cooking techniques, the evolution of forms and textures – such as tartare and finger food -, the influence of exotic cultures: these are the elements that characterise the nouvelle vague of Sardinian cuisine. It is a cuisine in which the concept of the customer has evolved, becoming no longer just a consumer of delicious dishes, but a guest pampered and accompanied through an experience that can excite and titillate all the senses.

The results? Every year, Sardinian restaurants are increasingly recognised, mentioned and included in the most prestigious international culinary guides, such as the Michelin Guide and the Gambero Rosso, and in specialised magazine articles all over the world. Such goals are also achieved by pizzerias, pastry shops, bakeries and ice cream parlours. Research and innovation also characterise the wineries, with the rediscovery of almost forgotten vines and the enhancement of wine varieties of the past, the production of liqueurs and spirits made from spontaneous herbs and fruits and the increasing number of craft breweries. Eating and drinking well go hand in hand and always find the right combinations and the best and sometimes daring ways of complimenting each other, resulting in unforgettable sensations to experience in every corner of the island.

The Stonehenge of the Mediterranean

The Stonehenge of the Mediterranean

Sardinia has an age-old story, told by the archaeological evidence dotted throughout the territory. The tangible signs of the prehistoric island are endless: menhir, dolmen, domus de Janas, sacred wells, tombs of the giants and countless Nuraghe complexes. Enormous stones that have been guarding secrets for four thousand years. Buildings, often intact, of the first civilizations ever to exist in Europe, the only sites of their kind in the world, a patrimony to be discovered and experienced: this is the Stonehenge of the Mediterranean.

Eyes to admire and a soul to understand. It is the immediate feeling when faced with the impressive ruins of prehistoric Sardinia. Megalithic monuments, stones that recount stories and protagonists, identifying populations and beliefs. Visiting the island means reliving the same itineraries, once again hearing the sounds of the stones telling a distant story. Evocative places steeped in charm, to be visited on foot or on two wheels, in contact with nature and history.

A day in Sardinia is like flipping through hundreds of pages of a book on archaeology: you will come across some of the most important sites and complexes in the world. Deserving, more than any other, of the title of Sardinian Stonehenge, is the area of Pranu Mutteduthe Perdas Fittas are the most obvious traces of the Neolithic civilization. From the Mediterranean scrub, visitors will see numerous blocks of Megalithic buildings. Legends and fairy tales that get lost over time, like those of the Janas of Barbagia, accompany travellers on their visit to the prehistoric ruins.

Seven thousand stone towers, and many others could still be uncovered. To be exact, one every three square kilometres. The nuraghi, symbols of the Island, were probably the centre of social life of a civilization that emerged at the beginning of the Bronze Age (in the middle of the 2nd millennium BC) and lasted until the Iron Age (9th century BC) and stands out compared to all the Mediterranean cultures. In some areas, as in the Valle dei Nuraghi (in Logudoro) there are thirty of them, just a few hundred metres from each other. That of Barumini, Su Nuraxi, has been proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
