Prix Villégiature Awards: Forte Village, the best resort in Europe Prize 2019
On the 14th of October 2019, the jury of Prix Villégiature Awards assigned the Gran Prix recognition of Best resort in Europe to Forte Village, the multi-prized international resort in Santa Margherita di Pula, Sardinia.
Another great victory is now added to the palmarés of Forte Village as it was recognized for being the best resort in Europe during the 17th edition of Prix Villégiature Awards, held in the Ferrières castle near Paris.
The Prix Villégiature Awards, established in 2003, are much sought after as high level international recognition in the hospitality sector and are given every year to the best hotels in Europe, Africa, Middle East and Asia, by a jury of 23 journalists from 15 different countries.
Forte Village has once again proven itself as the perfect destination in the middle of the Mediterranean for all kinds of travelers seeking accessible luxury and its variety of accommodation solutions for their vacation: eight elegant 4 and 5 star hotels, high quality suites and thirteen exclusive luxury villas for those preferring privacy and wellbeing, far away from the day to day chaos of city life.
The resort has invested over 50 million euros over the past 4 years to restyle all of the accommodation and to upgrade all of its services.
Immersed in an enchanted natural park of 47 hectares, it is bordered by marvelous white sand beaches and the splendid blue Sardinian sea. Forte Villages has much to offer including a wide selection of restaurants including those run by gourmet Michelin starred chefs, 21 in total with special menus made by 100 chefs and celebrities of haute cuisine such as Massimiliano Mascia, Vivek Singh and Heinz Beck. There are also over 600 wines from the best national and international canteens waiting in the cellar.
The resort is ideal for vacations with children. At Forte Village children can have fun and practice their favorite sport at one of the 20 Sport Academies where they will find great champions from different disciplines to be their trainers: legends from Chelsea football team, Ettore Messina in basketball, fencing with Diego Occhiuzzi and Margherita Granbassi, and many more.
While children improve their sporting techniques in groups or singularly, adults can relax and dedicate time to their physical and mental wellbeing by trying the extraordinary wellness treatments at the Acquaforte Thalasso and Spa. A garden paradise within the resort, you can do Hatha Yoga, detox with thalassotherapy or take care of your psycho-physical health with treatments tailored for you by wellness specialists of international fame.
A Private Spa is also available for all those dreaming of a vacation dedicated to wellness in an exclusive area with total privacy which provides a romantic atmosphere in which to celebrate a special occasion or to enjoy quality time with their partner, family or friends.
The resort also has an extraordinary open air theatre: the Forte Arena, a structure that resembles the ancient Roman arenas because of its oval shape. Immersed in lush natural surroundings, the amphitheater can seat an audience of 5000 people and provide a stage of 8000 sq.m, perfect for hosting grand shows, company events, product presentations, MICE activities and concerts with national or international artists.
Lorenzo Giannuzzi the CEO & General Manager: his philosophy is based on the extraordinary combination of innovation, continuity and tradition, making Forte Village a destination without comparison.
