Located on the edge of the National Marine Park of La Maddalena, the 5-star Hotel Valle dell’Erica holds a perfect position with superb views in all directions and some of the most spectacular sandy beaches to be found in the area. This stunning resort has been reconstructed on the original site of the very first holiday village ever built in Sardinia back in 1958. The village was wildly popular with a very affluent clientele – kings, princes and nobility were often on the guest list and once you have visited this little bit of paradise, you can see why!
The 271 ground and first-floor bedrooms are set amongst the natural vegetation and are carefully positioned so that access to the lovely white sandy beach is never more than 200m. There is a great choice of accommodation ranging from standard rooms to suites. True Sardinian style furnishings and fittings abound and all rooms have a covered veranda with 2 deck chairs (or table and 2 chairs), en-suite bathroom with hairdryer, air conditioning, telephone, satellite TV, safe, and mini-bar. For real relaxation, you may also book one of the 6 stupendous ‘wellness centre rooms’ – specially designed with relaxation in mind and with direct access to the Thalassotherapy centre.
Four super pools invite you to take a dip at any time of the day without ever losing the fabulous sea view. There are 3 pools for the use of all guests including a children's pool and one for adults only.
The Thalasso and Spa Centre "Le Thermae" is a great place to relax and encounter some real pampering. Set amidst the impressive granite rocks that Sardinia is famous for, the centre consists of 4 multi-function sea water pools which are heated to different temperatures for the thalassotherapy circuit and if this is not enough, there is a huge choice of further beauty treatments, massages and exercise classes that you may select at your leisure.
Dining at Valle dell’Erica is a wonderful experience and you will find a choice of restaurants. Nautilus and/or Les Bouches are where breakfast is served on the fabulous terraces in the morning along with some spectacular show cooking in the evening. Guests may enjoy candlelit dinners in Il Grecale (reservation required) or at the lovely La Prua (reservation required plus supplement payable locally). At Li Ciusoni authentic Sardinian fare is served including traditional dishes made with local products (reservation required plus supplement payable locally) and there is also a super beach grill, Li Zini, that offers a wonderful selection of mouth-watering shellfish and locally caught fish, cooked on the barbeque (subject to weather, reservation required and supplement payable locally).
Valle dell’Erica has thought out every aspect of your holiday and if you are travelling with children, there are some clubs that are not to be missed:

Comfortable and clean and great size, lovely view and hammock was the perfect touch… We really liked the fact that staff always greeted you as they passed by and were genuinely friendly and happy! Reception staff were very helpful and although we saw some reviews about their English not being great we didn't see any evidence of that! A really lovely holiday. We especially enjoyed the live music which was a lovely surprise as we hadn't been expecting.
