I have gone to Carlo Forte for years and close to my Forties I developed a strong connection to this wonderful place.

There is too much to tell about this island that cannot be squeezed in a single post . So this subject is going to be divided into several posts.

Let’s start with the natural beauties like this one.

This is the beach called “La caletta” perfect for the surfers when the mistral blows and for the families when the southwest wind blows. – I wasn’t really a wind expert till few years ago. But as a Sardinian woman I couldn’t get around this issue if I wanted to enjoy the beach in summer and so I had to start dealing with them.- So, on Saturday we stood up and no sign of mistral, so we head to La Caletta which looks like this in the sunlight.

And here we had lunch.

– For the food see my next post –

 And I fell in love with this house (the architecture and design of Carlo Forte houses are going to be part of another post too).

I am considering moving here, if the owners move out …

On Saturday the Mistral was blowing so we head to “La Bobba”.

where we swam and lay in the sun and ate sea urchins on the rocks, which was an unforgettable experience.

 

And then it was already time to go and we waved goodbye to the Carlo Forte promenade from the ferry.
