Since then the coastline has become a playground for the rich and famous, but there are slightly less pretentious parts to enjoy.
This week’s property is in Porto Rotondo, a less famous resort than its more glamorous neighbour Porto Cervo, but also considered to be more attractive and a haven for yacht cruising.
The villa comes with six bedrooms, a guest annexe, swimming pool, squash court and billiards room.
Should you tire of Porto Rotonda, there are three small islands close by – Isola Soffi, Isola Le Camere and Isola Mortorio – which form part of the Maddalena Archipelgo National Park.
The villa is marketed by Knight Frank but it doesn’t come with a publicly listed price, so we’ll leave it up to you to decide what it’s worth.
