Bed and boat at Sant’Antioco – A must-do experience

Sant’Antioco, for centuries has been a cultural and aggregating landmark, a melting pot of ethnic groups and dialects. It’s one of the oldest cities of the western world, where the last masters of the Bisso live - a silk made from the filaments of a rare marine bivalve.

Sant'Antioco conquers everyone with its picturesque atmosphere where most of its inhabitants are fishermen. The island of the same name, in which the town is located, is the largest of the Sardinian islands

Even if the classic accommodations have what you need for a comfortable stay, this doesn’t mean that they can offer unique atmosphere and emotions destined to remain indelible in your memory.

The experience of passing a night on a boat can be defined as unique: having breakfast and dinner on the boat’s deck admiring the sunrise and sunset, comfortably moored in the Marina, taking advantage of all its services is a lovely way to spend a weekend or a holiday.

In the beautiful setting of Sant’Antioco, sleep on a boat with all the comforts you would find in a traditional accommodation making your stay unforgettable.
