Discovering Gallura: Golfo Aranci

Golfo Aranci

Golfo Aranci

Along the strip of land that divides Marinella Gulf from Olbia Gulf, stands Golfo Aranci: a charming natural locality that is capable to answer to all the housing needs in the respect of environment and tradition. Here, nature is the protagonist 365 days-a-year, with the typical Capo Figari cliffs and the thousands of white beaches. Lovers of bien vivre chose it as their nest or their holiday destination, also for its nearness to the renowned Costa Smeralda.

The residential development

The locality owns its name to an error of translation: in fact, cartographers have translated Gulfu de li Ranci in Golfo Aranci but it really means “Crab Gulf”. Hugged by the sea, for a long time the town has been inhabited just by sailors and fishermen. In the ’80ies, with the boom of Costa Smeralda, it has drawn tourists’ attention. Today it exhibits colourful homes that blend harmoniously with the environment, thanks to colours and shadows games. All realized with local natural materials, the houses not only integrate with nature, but they also respect it and promote a green eco-sustainable lifestyle. If you are looking for wellness and a life that follows the slow rhythm of nature, this is the place that is made for you.

Just like residential development, even the services have increased and have been enhanced. Starting from the main services, like bar, tobacco, markets, and pharmacy, you can find many restaurants where to taste exquisite dishes, well-equipped structures where to practice the sports you like, and many rental shops. If you are looking for a wider offer, you can easily get to Olbia and find everything you need most. From the touristic harbour leave the ferries to Livorno, Corsica, and Côte d’Azur as well as day-trips to the near Olbia and Marinella gulfs. And for your evenings and nights, you’ll have the chance to enjoy them in the seafront bar and clubs or in those of the adjacent Emerald Cost.
