The resort is located on the sunny south coast of Sardinia 40 minutes from Cagliari Airport and offers a choice of five 5* hotels and three 4* hotels plus 11 luxury villas.


We know our delegates travel too much and business is often taking them away from families. This time we have this covered for you. While you are at the event, we will take care of your family members, they will be looked after, pampered and entertained. This time you have a choice not to go away for business, but to take your family with you for an experience to remember.


There is an unparalleled range of sports facilities for adults but also for infants, children and teenagers with pools, tennis courts, football pitches, fencing options, water sports, biking, hiking, golf, outdoor and indoor fitness, large water park, kids village, animators and expert babysitting service on demand.


Twenty-five years ago the medical team at Forte Village, revolutionized the world of thalassotherapy, creating a totally original and extraordinarily effective method for detoxing, rejuvenating and improving the body - “One of a kind” is certainly what you can call the unique, exotic, outdoor Acquaforte Thalasso & Spa with 6 different thalasso pools under the palm trees and the world class medical aesthetic center.
