Located near Cagliari and comprising of 150 hectares of unspoilt natural landscape, this is the site of Italy’s largest prison complex dating from 1875, vacant since closure in 1955, and of world heritage interest. The original prisoner landing point is also included with this proposal.

 

The plan includes a 5 star 160 key hotel and spa, an international golf course, a country club, 110 private villas and a beach club. Community interests include a museum, artisan crafts, organic produce market and an equestrian centre, gaining positive political support and rumoured to become a premiere Sardinian destination in the future.
