Amazing time in Sardinia

We made several stops during our July trip to Italy, including famous places like Venice and Rome, but Sardinia was certainly its highlight!

Natalia asked a lot of questions during the planning phase and found the ideal location for us! Everything about it was perfect! Boutique hotel La Coluccia with its beautiful grounds, breathtaking views, super friendly staff and a great sandy beach. Ancient megalithic nuraghe sites, excellent wineries and fantastic “farm-to-fork” restaurants all in a short driving distance.

Coming from California we couldn’t help but notice a lot of similarities in the scenery and vegetation of Sardinia and with that the differences were even more striking. No crowds. Warm sea. Medieval towns. Super fresh minimally processed food. And did i mention no crowds? :).

We can’t wait to come back! Thank you Natalia and Roberto for our great time in Sardinia!

Wonderful experience with Roberto and Natalia in Sardinia!

Our family visited Sardinia for four days in June. Natalia and Roberto arranged all of our travel while we were there. They created an unforgettable experience for us. Though they arrange travel, they are so much more than travel agents or tour guides. They ensured that every aspect of our visit to Sardinia was smooth and trouble-free and that we were well taken care of at every moment of our stay. They were also very generous with their own time and accompanied us on many of our excursions: a visit to the beautiful Stintino Beach (imagine water the color of the Caribbean surrounding a medieval castle); a hiking trip through the spectacular landscape of Moon Valley; lunch at a farmhouse where our hosts served us wine they had made themselves; and a tour of an artisanal winery by the winemaker himself, including a wine tasting in his own vineyard.

These are only some of the wonderful experiences Natalia and Roberto created for us. As we spent time together, we learned so much from them about the history and culture of Sardinia. Roberto is a native Sardinian and, when he is not creating magical experiences for travelers, a Grammy-nominated jazz musician. Natalia is originally from Russia. Her love for her adopted Sardinian homeland, and her deep knowledge of it, shine through.

We can’t thank Roberto and Natalia enough for the care and attention which they showed our family on our visit to Sardinia. We can’t wait to return!

We are group of seasoned travelers who knows each other for more than 40 years.
We traveled together for many years and normally have certain expectations for accommodatins and hiking.
Natalya and Roberto exceeded our requirements and we feel welcomed and naturally comfortable.
They were very flexible, punctual, perfectly organizing all steps of our rather complex itinerary.
We left with feeling of returning back to explore different parts of island and possibly Corsica with them.
Sardinia itself as destination appeared to be hidden pearl and no wonder that locals try to preserve this Island’s environment and traditions.
You can find everything in Sardinia:
European history, local culinary, unbelievable hiking and biking as well tremendous hospitality.

Our group of 7 people , friends from USA (Washington, NY, Philadelphia ) and Australia travelled on October 2018 with this agency. From day one , when Natalia and Roberto met us in the airport we felt surrounded by care, professional approach and felt so welcome in this amazing Italian island.
Trip was designed and well thought with increadible creativity. We were stunned by combination of Italian hospitality , warmth , food choices mixed with exotic beauty of the island. With company private comfortable jipp and knowledgeable associates we visited unbeaten path of gardens, cork woods,wineries, beaches , little towns, castles as well as farms and even festivities with great people of Sardinia. Hiking, swimming in gourgeus blue waters was priceless. Highly recommend this tour company ! We immediately started thinking of next trip, combining other areas , which we would like to visit ! Thank you so much Natalia and Roberto !!

Impressions – they are beyond any words. It was a magical journey.
Thank you! This is the rare case when everything worked out, and even not very good weather did not prevent to get true pleasure!
The cuisine of Sardinia and everything else was at the highest level! We will recommend this food and wine tour to all friends and people who want to discover Sardinia.
Thanks to Roberto and Natasha, we traveled a very interesting part of the island, visited many different places, and tried (or rather eaten) 🙂 a very different cuisine depending on historical origin and cooking characteristics. Each day was different, according to the ideas of R. and N, surprise and delight were on the increase. Since Roberto has a lot of friends around the island, he managed to arrange wonderful surprises for us. For example, at one of the meals he invited his musicians who made a real folk music concert, but they were not strained, because these musicians were dining with us at the same table, we joked and laughed, periodically sang and listened to music, and Roberto also took a guitar and joined his friends. In general, the situation turned out very homey and cozy. Another time, because of the weather, we could not take a sea tour on a fishing boat, instead, we sailed on the ferry to Asinara island, where we took (again, thanks to Roberto) two electric cars and traveled the whole island. Was good weather and a wonderful mood. We spent the whole day there. And the dinner was an open-air picnic surrounded by wild nature. All the food, or rather the dishes were specially prepared for us, of course, we tasted wonderful wine too. In general, we were lucky in everything. You ask what is more memorable, I can not answer, because every day it was a diamond put in the treasury of our travels, the guys did not leave us even after the day program, we spent the evenings with them. We did not have free time, and it was not necessary. We every night literally fell into bed, so that, with the sunrise, we again fly to new adventures!
We were worried that in this time trouble we could not even buy wine, cheese, something else, well, to bring with us, so they took us to the right places, including a private shop, advised, helped to make a right choice.
Of course, we visited the Costa Smeralda, the beaches there are amazing, we have already decided that when it comes the time for beach holidays, we will definitely go there.
On the last evening, we said good-bye as the close friends, hugging and crying. And the last surprise-they made us a gift – a bottle of olive oil family production and a spoon stand made of Sardinian ceramics. By the way, olive oil in Sardinia is really the best, in any case, such a flavor I have never tasted. And all the products there are very fresh and natural. We ate a lot, but never felt uncomfortable :).
At this end, although talking about Sardinia can be endless and only good.

Without question though, the Sardinian experience was the highpoint, and for this I must highlight the efforts of our two Sardinian VIP guides, Natalia and Roberto. We would like you to communicate, that they are extraordinarily knowledgeable and gracious hosts for their lovely country, and we would recommend them to any discerning traveler to Sardinia, without qualification. While our normal focus on trips like this is the hiking/walking experience, we found ourselves quickly getting this out of the way so we could enjoy the spectacular lunches in restaurants and homes of their friends. Never before have we enjoyed such an “insider” experience. We will be recommending it to many of our friends.

We have great memories of the trip, especially Sardinia. You and Roberto are obviously great guides and organizers and your efforts on our behalf made this vacation a very special memory. I again want to especially thank Roberto for his “above and beyond the call of duty” effort in looking after me
