Sardinia is Europe’s second largest Island, and while it may not be cheap, for many this does little to quell its appeal. The rich and famous have been flocking here for fifty years and there seems to be a well known about the wine here, it is apparently the key to long life.
Researchers have found that the reds from its Nuoro area help with good health and a longevity of life. And true enough Sardinia has a nice ratio of centurinarians amongst its small population.
Though that laid back Mediterranean style of life is no doubt a big help to anyone attempting to live in to their hundreds. The air is fresh and the water is clear and unspoiled, and it is hard to think of any hour of time spent here being one that would take its toll.
The landscape is filled with flowers giving the air a clean and new smell, then there are the clean beaches perfect for a day spent reclining as the sea shimmers in the distance and in to the horizon.
The centre of the Island is mostly mountains so you tend to find that the people settlements are mostly scattered around the coast, allowing an easier, more ocean breeze swept life.
Now more flights at cheaper prices have made the island a more accessible destination for tourists not wishing to break the bank, with self catering and Sardinia villas offering them a chance to save a lot of money. Yet it would seem that the island will still always be popular with couples and families that are comfortable with spending a little money on their holiday abroad.
Yet while the island has become more affordable, it would seem that it remains.
