MEDITERRANEAN MAGIC

SARDINIA, A PARADISE TO ADMIRE

 

There are so many fascinating stories about Sardinia, its many thousand-year-old civilizations, its peculiar characteristics: a wonderful aura of notoriety was created around this wonderful island. The beauty and harmony of today’s Sardinian Landscapes are the results of care policies, which over the last 50 years have tried to highlight their merits.

The island, with its beautiful beaches and the lush Mediterranean Scrubland that surrounds it, has been able to preserve its territory to date and reconcile the needs of the tourist industry with the defense of the environment. Recent regional and municipal legislation has shown sensitivity and attention, to maintain this delicate balance, in order to protect a valuable natural heritage.

The territory of GalluraCosta Smeralda, with its 450 km of coastal areas, is characterized by a strong naturalistic connotation. The presence of a single large Mediterranean Vegetation area, the total absence of agricultural or industrial activities, physical and visual barriers, and a low density of settlements close to the protected coasts are all elements that make this island a place unique in the world.

THE BRAND COSTA SMERALDA

Talking about Gallura you can not refer to the Costa Smeralda, the brand created by Prince Shah Karim Al Hussaini, Aga Khan IV in the sixties, today synonymous with excellence and luxury.

Aga Khan‘s investments had a dragging effect: several entrepreneurs came to this region, even from abroad, and acquired areas bordering on the sea. Architects, artisans, artists, and professionals worked alongside investors’ cores, making the same sense of territory, striving to respect the environment in architecture. They pledged with local authorities to create the first landscaping constraints already in the 1970s, giving birth to the University of Culture that has been schooling in Sardinia.

This example demonstrates how the investments made have produced great benefits for the area: every prestige real estate unit along the coast of the island, has been thought not to be stand-alone but to interact with the territory, creating economic induction for 15-20 people all year round.

The continued demand for quality and excellence has led to the constant search for new improvements, pushing local craftsmen to an ever-increasing professionality, with benefits and gains pouring across the territory.

Starting from the awareness of the uniqueness and wealth that this region possesses, it was possible to think of a model of tourism real estate development, that can enhance the local features of authenticity, focusing on a balanced relationship between tradition and innovation. With particular attention to safeguarding ecology and eco-sustainability.

ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION

Gallura can now be considered as a large city, which is the center of the lively town of Olbia, and the protected areas of the coast that stretch from Olbia to Porto Rotondo, Porto Rafael, Porto Cervo, Palau, to reach Santa Teresa di Gallura and Aglientu.

These areas are defined as “zone F” areas of high coastal value, which have been preserved since the 1970s by urban policies aimed at the eco-sustainable development of the territory. By contrast, “C” areas are concerned with urban and peripheral areas and are not affected by landscape constraints.

Attention to the territory of Gallura is considered a fundamental value to be preserved: in this direction are also the most recent norms, such as Regional Law 25 November 2004, no. 8, which further strengthens the constraints on the coasts.

TERRITORIES BOUND SINCE THE ’70S REFER TO THE MUNICIPALITIES OF:

Olbia: approximately 60,000 inhabitants, including the hamlets, distributed over a total of about 85 km of coastal development

Arzachena: approximately 11,000 inhabitants, including the hamlets, distributed over a total of about 80 km of coastal development

Palau: approximately 4,500 inhabitants, including the hamlets, distributed over a total of about 35 km of coastal development

La Maddalena and The Archipelago Islands: about 12,000 inhabitants, including the hamlets, distributed over a total of about 100 km of coastal development

Santa Teresa di Gallura: approximately 4,500 inhabitants, including fractions, distributed over a total of about 75 km of coastal development

Aglientu has about 1,500 inhabitants, including fractions, distributed over a total of about 35 km of coastal development.

THE HARMONY BETWEEN DEVELOPMENT AND NATURE

In a time like ours, one can choose one of those rare places where uncontaminated development and uncontaminated nature coexist in balance is a primary necessity. Gallura is one of these enchanting places.

The sea is not traversed by large oil cargoes and its currents, thanks to an extremely jagged coastline, creating a harmonious and protected ecosystem.

The air, thanks also to the total absence of dense industrial settlements, enjoys a particular transparency.

The wind and the sea breeze continually renew the atmosphere, rejecting the contaminating streams.

The land, cleverly metered by geological composition between rocks and fertile plains, dominated by a mountain crown that filters the purity of the aerial streams, is home to a very original and fragrant flora, a protected and rare wildlife.

And finally, the fire, symbol of human settlements here in Gallura, responds to the natural measure of life that the laws of nature for millennia have dictated for the well – being of each.

The quality of life here comes to hand, due to the very low density of housing per square kilometer. The size of villages and towns, the modern equipment, the protection of health, the large spaces available.

The Gallura wisely protects the life of its inhabitants: here modernity and technology coexist with the regenerating energy of an unequal place.
