The Resort Valle Dell’Erica is located on the north of Palau, on the edge of the National Marine Park of La Maddalena – just in front of the wonderful uninhabited island of Spargi. It is Situated 4 kms from the little village of Porto Pozzo with its harbour and shops and only 12 kms far from Santa Teresa di Gallura, famously positioned by the straits of Bonifacio. The original construction at the Resort Valle Dell’Erica dates back to 1958 and was the very first holiday village in Sardinia to be built – at that time there were no restrictions hence its vicinity to the sea – its owner was a pioneer of the Sardinian tourist industry that was to follow. Thanks to the natural beauty of the area and the quality of the building, it was awarded by the President of the Republic, and this made it one of the exclusive places to stay during the 60’s, with guests including princes and kings. It is now equipped with every comfort with the aim to offer the best natural but exclusive holiday. At Only 80 metres from the hotel, (80–200 m from the rooms) you will find the gorgeous bays of Valle dell’Erica, some with free sun-beds and umbrellas reserved for the hotel guests. Confining with the Resort, one big wonderful beach reachable by foot.
The resort holds a unique and unbeatable position, just a few metres from the stupendous white sandy bays with time-sculptured rocks and immersed in one of the most beautiful natural areas on the whole island. Thanks to the many private areas, the numerous little bays reachable by foot, the romantic rooms with panoramic verandas, the warm and welcoming atmosphere of the Thalasso & SPA Centre along with all the services on offer, this is a truly wonderful oasis of peace, perfect for couples. The Resort Valle Dell'Erica is also suited to families as there are large open spaces where children can safely play without disturbing adults plus there is an equipped mini club and one children’s swimming pool. As well as the crystal clear sea and the superb scenery, the resort offers a wonderful sea water swimming pool just a few metres from the coast, one pool for children and a prestigious Thalasso & Spa Centre.
