Inside the Hotel Cala di Volpe
Accommodation in Sardinia
The whole Aston Martin experience in Sardinia was not just about the super DBX707, as our accommodations on the beautiful island were every bit as luxurious as the Aston Martin.
Our host resort property was the Hotel Cala di Volpe, a true 5 star property in terms of location on the Costa Smeralda or “Emerald Coast”, great rooms, a top class 18 hole golf course, a top notch spa and workout facilities, fantastic restaurants and super pleasant and very professional staff.
About the Costa Smeralda
Costa Smeralda was born in the early sixties, thanks to the revolutionary vision of a committee of investors and architects. The objective was to develop an exclusive destination for international jet-setters on untouched land on the north-eastern coast of Sardinia, through a strict master plan and by carrying out all the necessary infrastructure (from the airport to the streets, drainage system to all facilities including golf courses, hotels, residences, villas, etc.). The main and fundamental principle was to build everything with full respect for the beautiful surrounding nature, using the best native materials, while respecting the rich and ancient local heritage. The land itself, with its stunning natural beauty, has inspired architects and developers.
It was in 1963 that one of the very first buildings on the Costa Smeralda rose on one of the most picturesque bays of the island, named after the “Fox”, to celebrate the main inhabitants of the place before humanity: it was the Hotel Cala di Volpe. . The initial project was created and developed by Jacques Couëlle, who liked to define himself not as an architect, but rather as “a sculptor of houses”.
Honorary member of the prestigious Academy of Fine Arts of the Institut de France, the artistic genius of Jacques Couëlle is undisputed. His design of the Hotel Cala di Volpe is an artistic masterpiece that irrevocably shaped the coastline into one of the most glamorous resort destinations for celebrities, royalty and the international social elite.
