Hotel Mezzaluna3 Star Hotel in Carloforte

An Island of Emotions

Hotel Mezzaluna is located in Carloforte, on San Pietro Island, in Sardinia, in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea.
This island-off-an-island really has it all, for a holiday to write home about: sea, leisure, sport, nature, culture, food and wine.

The hotel blends perfectly into the surrounding environment, nestling between Mediterranean maquis and a splendid pine forest, close to the Gulf of Mezzaluna from which it has borrowed the name. The ideal place for a fun, relaxing holiday in an unspoilt natural landscape.

The hotel is the result of the careful, stylish restoration of what was once a barracks, built in local stone and overlooking some of the most striking scenery in San Pietro: the stacks (fabulous rock pillars of volcanic origin rising up from the sea), the natural oases, the ancient Lighthouse, the salt pans and the characteristic tuna fisheries. Visitors will have plenty of opportunities to discover everything this unique landscape has to offer; we will be pleased to organise trips and a wide range of entirely safe, fun sports activities, with special deals for guests.
Thanks to its splendid location, Hotel Mezzaluna offers absolute peace and quiet.

Carloforte. A little piece of Liguria into the heart of the Mediterranean.

The town was founded in 1738 by Genoese fishermen who arrived there from Tabarca, and the local dialect, traditions, customs and cuisine are a fascinating blend of Sardinian identity laced with Ligurian and Tunisian influences.

A stroll through the characteristic streets of the town will reveal numerous traces of its origins: the Castle, Casa del Duca, the carrugi (narrow alleys typical of Genoa), the casine (typical dwellings) and the palazzate, colourful Ligurian-style buildings along the Battellieri promenade. And if you fancy stopping off to sample some local food, you can try cascà (a type of couscous), casulli pasta and tonno della "mattanza" (traditionally-fished tuna).

A range of trekking and mountain-bike routes will take you through splendid scenery into the wild, unspoilt heart of the island, amid rocks and maquis, where birdwatchers will have the chance to observe a number of protected species nesting on the cliffs: Eleonora's falcon, Audouin's gull and kestrel; while even less expert eyes will have no trouble spotting flamingos in flight along the 18 km of coastline.

The cliffs of the island will form a splendid backdrop to your holiday, with particularly spectacular scenery in the inlets of Capo Sandalo, the Nasca Basin, the natural rock amphitheatres of Mezza Luna, Cala Vinagra and Cala Fico and in the marine caves of Punta delle Oche which look out onto the columns of lavic rock.

Sailing enthusiasts may like to get away from the crowds of tourists and venture out into the gulfs most exposed to the north-westerly Mistral wind, which will drive them safely across the rippling waters.

Visitors can customise their stay with a selection of the cultural, natural and food & wine routes which run throughout the splendid, unique landscape of the San Pietro Island.
