Holidays in Sardinia: sport and rest
Between lockdowns, restrictions imposed on travelers and flight cancellations, the 2020 summer season started late and above all in the name of safety – mandatory for both tourists and accommodation facilities. In such an unusual perspective, there are destinations and holidays (Italian) that offer greater guarantees. Sardinia, for example. Strong of an incidence rate of the virus among the lowest in the Peninsula, it offers vast beaches where it is easy to apply the rules of social distancing, and resorts where individual spaces are guaranteed. One of these is definitely Is Molas Resort.
Designed by Massimiliano and Doriana Fuksas – who are they inspired by nuragic architecture to create minimal and hyper-technological villas with sinuous shapes, painted in pastel tones, and furnished with designer furniture with sculptural shapes – the complex extends near Pula, in the southern part of the island, on an area of 500 hectares away from the splendid archaeological remains of Nora. Given the natural context and its non-invasive architecture, Is Molas Resort lives in harmony with the beautiful surrounding nature, that of the Park of Gutturu Mannu, the oldest and largest holm oak forest in the Mediterranean. It is not uncommon to see groups of Sardinian deer come out of the bush, perhaps early in the morning, when you get up to take a dip in your private swimming pool. And nature awaits guests even in the only one Bike Park of Sardinia which, starting from the resort’s Club House, extends over approximately 30 hectares of property within the Montano Park. Dozens of marked and mapped routes make it an asset for mountain bikers (and for beginners of the free ride, there is a “bike school” with instructors available).
After the bike, it is definitely worth discovering new beach “Is Molas Beach Club”, because the sea of Sardinia is legendary, so much so that after this taste you will want to continue along the coast to discover, perhaps by boat, isolated coves and romantic promontories such as Capo Spartivento or famous beaches such as Chia with its protected lagoon. And if you want to continue in the name of outdoor sports, maintaining a correct spacing, you can try your hand at open air activities by the partner Natked: a path of functional training which combines strengthening techniques with martial arts and yoga.
After so much open air exercise, it is natural to reward yourself with the dishes you do chef Ivano Congiu, expert in creative Mediterranean cuisine, prepares in the brand new La19 lounge area, which offers a restaurant and a pool & cocktail bar. Pleonastic perhaps write it, but those who come to Is Molas are also attracted to another sport in contact with nature: the Is Molas Golf Club in fact, it boasts a 27-hole course recognized among the best in Europe, and is this destination of specialized tourism at high levels.
The activity, which resumed on June 20, will alternate between different circuits such as Golf Guide, Apart Revolution Tour, Wingolf Race to PGA Catalunya, Tm Open Race to Marrakech – all competitions involving national and international finals. The Mid Amateur Golf Trophy stage and the prestigious races in August such as Piaggio, Caffè del Doge, Jack Nicklaus and the new sponsor Elliot Srl are confirmed. For fans of these sports there is also a promotion: “Unlimited Golf Summer 2020 ”provides an entire week of unlimited golf. For a stay in a villa with Green Fee included.
For bookings made until July 15th, Is Molas Resort guarantees an Early Booking discount.
