Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Valle dell'Erica is one of our favourite hotels, a haven of peace perfectly conducive to relaxation. It is an upmarket establishment with modern, high-quality facilities, and has the double advantage of being located not only in a nature reserve but also in a fine and tranquil seaside position. If you like wide open spaces, being surrounded by nature, and peace and quiet, and wish to experience the benefits of thalassotherapy, then this is the place for you!

    Location 8.0 /10

    2.5 mi from the village of Porto Pozzo and 7.5 mi from Santa Teresa di Gallura, whilst Olbia airport is 37 mi away.

    Accommodation 9.00 /10

    The 140 rooms are very comfortable and are decorated in typical Mediterranean style, with wooden furniture, soft, calming colours, a sophisticated style and amazing views across the sea to top it all off. Amenities include a safe, minibar, plasma-screen television (with satellite channels), telephone, etc., while the bathroom contains a shower, hospitality products, bath towels and bathrobes. The floor area varies depending on whether you have booked a standard room or a suite, but the layout is the same throughout.

    Overview 8.70 /10

    The Valle dell'Erica was built in 1958, two years before the 'birth' of the Emerald Coast on the north-east coast of Sardinia, and the hotel has also changed with the times. It started out with just a few bungalows where well-off guests used to come to enjoy the sun and the beach. Porto Pozzo was, in effect, the VIP destination of the day, and tourists used to come to practise nudism. Since those 'happy-go-lucky' days, the Valle dell'Erica has expanded, and the present facilities date back to 2006. Spread over several acres, they are all located in the heart of a natural garden where the air is infused with the scent of Sardinian flowers and plants (the Valle dell'Erica is in fact named after a local plant). When you reach the hotel itself, you'll immediately notice its pleasant natural surroundings. The entrance lobby is particularly welcoming, with sophisticated and original decor, complete with handsome high ceilings, exposed beams, green plants, and the choice of colour scheme and furniture which all come together perfectly, giving a fresh feel to the whole place. To the right is the main restaurant, which is decorated in the same style and serves not only breakfast but also a rather unique Mediterranean buffet brunch of pasta, salad, cheeses and fruit. A second restaurant overlooking the sea completes the tasty dining options available at the hotel. What we liked most, however, was 'Le Thermea', a thalassotherapy centre offering a very comprehensive range of treatments you absolutely have to try if you really want to relax. The guest rooms are also welcoming and conducive to utter relaxation, and the Valle dell'Erica is one of those places you cannot afford to miss if you are looking for peace and quiet, especially because children are looked after brilliantly here. You can therefore let go of all your worries and pamper yourself with thalassotherapy treatments, or take the plunge in the infinity pool or emerald waters of the sea down below. Pure bliss!

    Food and drink 9.50 /10

    The Valle dell'Erica has 3 restaurants, the first of which is near the lobby and serves breakfast and brunch as a buffet from 7:30am to 10:30am and 12:30pm to 2:00pm or 1:00pm to 2:30pm respectively, depending on the time of year. Brunch consists of hot pasta dishes, a selection of cold dishes, several salad options, cheeses and fruit. A second restaurant opens just for dinner (7:30pm to 9:30pm or 8:00pm to 9:45pm, depending on the time of year), and guests can choose between the buffet, with show cooking, and the ą la carte option. The panoramic views are just as good a reason to linger there as the cuisine, which consists of international dishes prepared using Sardinian ingredients. Quite a few of the dishes are meat-based, as is traditional here.

    Beach 8.60 /10

    Here, too, there are plenty of bathing spots to choose from, with a number of little white sandy coves between 262 ft and 656 ft long down below, some of which are equipped with deckchairs and parasols. The large and magnificent beach of Licciola, which does have deckchairs and parasols available to hire, is 984 ft away. There is a free service allowing guests at the resort to book deckchairs and parasols on this beach, reserving their place by taking a voucher from reception. There are as many ways to relax in comfort as there are shades of blue in the sea in this spot, and the water is mesmerizingly beautiful.

    To know

    The Valle dell'Erica belongs to the Italian chain Delphina.
    Half of the guests are Italian, the rest from various countries around the world (French, English, American, German, etc.).
    The water in the rooms is not suitable for drinking, and you also have to be careful with the hot water, which can reach very high temperatures on occasion. Indeed, each bathroom is provided with its own boiler, and as water is such a precious commodity here, guests are asked to use it frugally.

    Inside the hotel itself, guests are expected to wear appropriate clothing, and are asked not to enter the restaurants in bathing suits.
