Costa Smeralda is the most important and prestigious tourist settlement in Sardinia. In the sixties a small group of international entrepreneurs under the lead of the Prince Karim Aga Kam decided to carry out, in an uninhabited pristine area, a project which respected as much as possible the environment and the breathtaking landscape. In this way they created the Costa Smeralda. To this end they erected, with strict policies and architectures, buildings in perfect harmony with the surrounding territory creating an unparalleled style even today pleasant and recognizable.
