The ultra luxurious beachfront resort of Forte Village in southern Sardinia is regularly voted World’s Leading Resort by the World Travel Awards. It is just a 45-minute journey from the airport and with it being such a huge complex we don't know if you will even find time to get out and explore all that the fabulous island of Sardinia has to offer.

Great for all ages, there is a 'Children's Wonderland’, teens’ complex and a whole host of sporting academies (some by well-known personalities) with many suitable for adults, including the table tennis, swimming and tennis, and a magic academy for those budding magicians amongst you.

Popular with footballers and other celebs, Forte Village comprises eight hotels, suites and villas, and 20+ bars and restaurants (one by Gordon Ramsay and one especially for kids), so isn’t for those seeking intimate family holidays and breaks. On-site also is a shop where you can by all baby and child essentials, plus there is a medical facility open 24/7 which tends to bring peace of mind when travelling with kids. 

Accommodation caters very well for families; you can choose between hotel and self-catering options. There are options to upgrade some rooms to include a children's play garden and even themed bedrooms for kids. It is these extra costs (and others, including some of the childcare) that steep on top of an already expensive holiday, but most families are more than satisfied with the service and the large variety of on-site activities for both adults and kids.

Location

Forte Village is about 40km (50 minutes’ transfer time) from Sardinia’s main airport Cagliari and about 5km from the closest town, Pula.
