Be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves at this all-suite restored lighthouse close to Sardinia’s loveliest beaches – includes a bottle of champagne and beach shuttle service

Sardinia’s southern coast is home to a number of huge, faceless luxury resorts, but right on the most extreme tip is a boutique bolthole that’s packed with charm. Drive through the fragrant, herb-filled Mediterranean scrub along a private road to a beautiful lighthouse conversion: the ochre-coloured building was built in the 1850s by the Italian Navy, and retains its individual quirks while offering five-star service and luxurious additions.

The all-suite accommodation at Faro Capo-Spartivento includes thoughtful touches like Provencal beds, and the communal areas feature eclectic furniture from around the world; breakfast is served poolside at tables hewn from Turkish carts, while mirrors feature Indian stamps and ornate chests hide piles of books in the tea room. Relax in your sitting room or next to the infinity pool, and discuss the day’s menu with the chef who’s on hand to whip up your favourite meals with ingredients from the local market.

Hop on the complimentary shuttle bus to the beautiful beaches of Chia, sandy bays with dunes covered in juniper backed by low rocky cliffs. There are archaeological sites to explore nearby, golf courses to play a round on and nature reserves that can be explored on foot. When you’ve tired of the sun, head back to the lighthouse for drinks on the terrace or the rooftop under a canopy of twinkling stars.

We like

  • The setting: on a wind-buffeted promontory with spectacular 360-degree views of the glittering Tyrrhenian Sea
  • Working with the chef to select menus based on your preferences, using the freshest local ingredients
  • Staying in a quirky lighthouse conversion which is still illuminated after dark as it was back in 1856 when it was built by the Italian Navy
