Description

The extraordinary piece of northeastern Sardinian coastline know as the Costa Smeralda—or “The Emerald Coast”—was largely undiscovered until the early 1960s when the Aga Kahn bought 5,000 acres of this prized stretch of fine white sand beaches and coves of the clearest Mediterranean water. Sensitive to the breathtaking landscape of granite coastline and lush eucalyptus, juniper, and myrtle, the Aga Kahn developed the area into a resort paradise that embraced the natural wonder of its setting while offering the most luxurious accommodations, activities, and amenities conceivable. To that end, he formed the Architectural Committee of the Costa Smeralda, which chose renowned architect Jacques Couelle to build the Hotel Cala di Volpe.

Honorary member of the prestigious Académie des Beaux-Arts of the Institut de France, Jacques Couelle’s artistic genius is undisputed. His design of the Hotel Cala di Volpe, completed in 1963, stands as an artistic masterpiece that irrevocably shaped the coastline into one of the most glamorous resort destinations for celebrities, royalty, and the international social elite.

The hotel’s exterior was conceived to look like an ancient Mediterranean fishing village—a private compound of interconnecting terracotta rooftops, turrets, porticoes, and terraces abloom with bougainvillea. The interiors give way to Couelle’s extraordinary surrealist vision. Graphic bursts of Mediterranean-inspired colours accent the white stucco. Dramatic archways and angled columns support the beautifully beamed wooden ceilings. Curved walls lead down angled passageways and up winding staircases, while the large-scale stone masonry echoes the wind-swept rock formations found outside. Superb Sardinian crafts celebrate the venerable artisan traditions of hand woven textiles, intricate woodcarving, and vibrant tile work that have been found here for centuries. The effect adds up to a setting of dynamic proportions, grand yet intimate, rustic yet undeniably sophisticated.

Jacques Couelle’s son Sauvin followed in his father’s extraordinary footsteps, continuing the unmistakable family legacy. Known for his fascinating designs all along the Costa Smeralda, Sauvin’s villas have become collector's items. In 2001 and 2008, Sauvin oversaw the renovations at the Hotel Cala di Volpe, employing only Sardinian mastLocated on the glamorous Costa Smeralda, Hotel Cala di Volpe faces the emerald waters of the Mediterranean. Designed as an old fishing village, the resort’s creative canopy of archways, porticoes, and turrets enjoys a staggeringly beautiful setting. Revel in an extensive selection of outdoor activities, from water sports in the crystal clear bay to swimming in the magnificent outdoor pool. The private white sand beach and the legendary 18-hole Pevero Golf Club are both just moments away.

A haven of thoughtful comforts and exquisite local design, each of the 124 rooms and suites at the Hotel Cala di Volpe celebrate the region's natural beauty and superb Sardinian artistry. Simple white washed walls are decorated with whimsical trompe l'oeil paintings, unique to each room. Accents of soft pastel colours echo the landscape's spring and summer palette. Handcrafted furniture is painted to match each room's singular theme, complemented further by vibrant ceramic tile work on the floors and in the bathrooms.

Every day begins with a selection of international newspapers at the door. Linger on your private terrace in a plush bathrobe and slippers, while soaking in the stunning panorama of land and sea, before retreating into the marble bathroom with premium bath products. Refresh yourself with bottled water, replenished daily and enjoy the generous selection of treats—many of local origin—found in each room\'s refreshment centre. High Speed Internet Access provides seamless connection to life at home, while multiple-language satellite channels, flat screen LCD televisions, DVD players, and a selection of in-room movies provide effortless entertainment.
