Sardinia I - Italy

More cards from Italy and i still have more. A few weeks ago Selina sent me a FB message asking me if i'd like to trade with her. I said yes because i didn't have many Sardinia cards and the cards she was offering were really beautiful. These are just the 1st 3 of 6.

"Isola Rossa," in other words Red Islet, is a seaside village situated in north eastern Sardinia, its name is due to the red colour of the small islet that rises from the sea opposite the village.
Isola Rossa's greatest features lie in its sea and landscape. Originally a fishing village, it has been able to mould its identity and become one of the most evocative holiday destinations in Sardinia. The particular colours of the landscape, with pink granite rock, a luxuriant Mediterranean vegetation, white sandy beaches, shallow and crystal clear seabeds, together with the extraordinary vicinity of the many hotels and holiday homes make a holiday at Isola Rossa particularly relaxing and suitable for families. Its beautiful sea is ideal for surfing, windsurfing, snorkeling and scubadiving allowing one to explore the marvellous seabed covered with corals. The rich underwater life here makes the seabed very popular with recreational fishing lovers. - in:

Golfo Aranci, situated on the Northeast coast of Sardinia, is not only an important port with daily connections with main land Italy, but also a great holiday destination that offers beautiful beaches and tourist facilities at hand. Besides the fantastic beaches in the gulf itself, there are many enchanting stretches of fine white sand in the surrounding area such as Cala Moresca, Cala Greca, Cala Sabina and White Beach. - in:

Villasimius is a small village of just 3000 inhabitants, about 50 minutes drive from Cagliari, that during the summer months counts up to 60.000 visitors per month.
All thanks to the innumerable, wonderful places, visible from the panoramic coastal road, that leave everyone breathless.
But Villasimius is not only beaches and sea; it also has plenty of discos, night clubs, pizzerias and restaurants. It's one of the preferred destinations for the "night people".
Past the village centre, on the right, you'll find the large beach of Campulongu appearing in the Capo Carbonara gulf, where you might often come across cormorants.
Along the road to Capo Carbonara, you'll arrive at the marina, recently restored and modernised for the needs of those yachtsmen who choose their boat as a means of transportation to this corner of paradise.
On the left, you'll find the beautiful Simius beach, characterised by the sea's warm temperature. This is due to the area's morphology, protected from the sea currents and abundant with marine animals and plants. - in:
