The Land of Gallura
The Beauty of Gallura
The immediate impression for those who come in Portobello di Gallura for the first time is a complex and intricate harmony of many different elements.
30 Km of coasts and mediterranean maquis
Granite rocks alternate with beaches and coves lapped by the clear Sardinian sea and surrounded by lush Mediterranean vegetation. A frame of particular natural beauty which changes under the caress, now slightly and now firmer, of sea and wind.
Vivid colors and aromas capture the senses of those who venture to explore this pristine stretch of coastline. Juniper, tamarisk and pine trees frame the magnificent beaches of fine white sand.
The flavours of Gallura
The hinterland, with its rural villages, “stazzi” and the old houses , makes the atmosphere of Portobello even more cozy and intimate. The savages and rebels profiles of the Mediterranean maquis and the impressive granite sculptures draw unusual geometries with neat rows of vineyards and cork.
The Mediterranean maquis and granite sculptures dominate the landscape, characterized by “stazzi”, rustic and antique houses, religious and archaeological sites and artistic and cultural amenities.
There are many farms where you can buy local food, places for food and wine connoisseurs or for those who simply want to discover the excellent flavors and genuine local tradition: cheese, wine, oil, honey and handicraft products.
The inland of Portobello di Gallura is characterized by green valleys of Mediterranean vegetation dotted with granite rocks shaped by the wind. In spring the whole area is transformed into a riot of colors and fragrances thanks to flowering mimosas, acacias and other flower essences typical of the area, giving great charm to the environment.
Portobello is part of the pretty village of Aglientu that, thanks to the intuition of its inhabitants, is now a small village, rich and vibrant, where you can enjoy all of the major services. The surrounding area is rich with vast forests of oak and juniper and granite cliffs; it has kept intact its natural and cultural heritage, protecting it from the messy urbanization and reconciling the needs of development with the protection of the environment. In Portobello di Gallura, today, is possible to enjoy the flavors of the original primitive land of Sardinia, a region of vineyards, fields, stazzi, cork trees, olive trees and Mediterranean scents.
Nestled in this unique environmental and, the Residential Park of Portobello is a veritable oasis for those in search of a way of life that can’t be defined simply as “tourist”.A place to rediscover ancient flavors, pleasant memories and restore your body and spirit.
