Located on the southern tip of Sardinia, the Faro Rosso Estate is based in a completely private nature reserve of the coastal region of Chia. Clearly placed as such to guide ships, the views offered by this estate go beyond any of the passing vessels, providing guests with a glimpse into the infinite, enabling inspiration, reflection and ultimate contemplation. This gorgeous Mediterranean vista hints at passion, power and the stories of those who have also enveloped themselves in such raw, natural beauty.
After 160 years, the lighthouse itself is still active, still a beacon to any wayward ships across the horizon only now completely without the help of a keeper. The Faro Ross lighthouse has been beautifully renovated and now contains four luxurious bedrooms as well as a further two mini apartment suites, altogether comfortably sleeping up to 12 people. The two mini apartment suites are set slightly away from the main building but each contain their own lounge along with an upstairs sleeping area which is beautifully lit by a skylight just above each bed. Further to this, Faro Rosso also features its own deluxe infinity pool which overlooks the fantastic surroundings.
Casa Malfatano is set just behind the lighthouse but is no less lavish, featuring five plush suites comfortably sleeping up to ten people. Tastefully redeveloped former lighthouse keeper's lodge, Casa Malfatano features a further outdoor infinity pool which again, offers fine views of the surrounding nature. Outside of this, the Casa also has a luxurious outdoor seating area complete with its very own bar and a wine cellar.
Chia is a rare beauty, with hillsides overflowing with Juniper, Mastic and Myrtle and a consistently warm temperature which barely ever drops to below 15 degrees centigrade.
Around the beaches of Chia there are plenty of things to do including boat trips, snorkelling, sun bathing and of course, lovely coastal walks, all with fantastic views of the ocean. The nearby beaches of Sa Colonia and Arveskida are also home to a night scene with bars and a small number of clubs, perfect for a night cap before a moonlight stroll on the beach.
Nearby sights include Chia Tower which offers fantastic views of the ocean and is itself an interesting place to visit due to it’s history as a lookout against pirate raids. There is also a golf course in the area along with several opportunities for shopping.
Further up the Chia coast is the historical town of Nora which is a must visit. Nora is home to the archaeological ruins of an Ancient Roman city, containing beautiful temples, mosaics and even Roman Baths. There is also the famed Nora Lagoon which is as gorgeous as it sounds.
