Poltu Quatu, Italy
Poltu Quatu is located in the north-east of Sardinia and was founded in 1987. It is a glamorous yet relaxing location set in the exclusive "Costa Smeralda". Close to Porto Cervo and only 30kms from "Olbia - Costa Smeralda".
Poltu Quatu looks like an old fishing village built around the traditional circular little square, with narrow alleys and stone buildings, situated on an inlet called “Stintino dell’Orso”, an area characterized by its red granite rocks which has been sculpted into fantastic shapes by the “maestrale” wind. The rocks make a frame to a very clear sea in which you can count the sand grains even at 20 metres deep.
