THE PENINSULA ESTATE – PORTO CERVO The Peninsula Estate in Porto Cervo, Sardinia is among the most exclusive estates in the Mediterranean and among the two most prestigious in Costa Smerlada. Built for British financier Lord Clore in the 1970s, this masterpiece of iconic, visionary and modernist architecture has been transformed by the current owner who purchased the entire peninsula – a four-hectare private oasis surrounded on three sides by the sea – to create a home with total privacy and harmony in the heart of the Costa Smeralda. The Peninsula is over 1.6 kilometre of protected coastline with a walking path, three beaches and a private dock, framed against the breathtaking backdrop of La Maddalena Archipelago and the Mediterranean Sea. The house has been integrated into the landscape and blends perfectly into the natural surroundings so it that cannot be perceived from the sea. The grand main villa and its detached guest house, overlooking the aquamarine waters of the Costa Smeralda, offer residents ultimate comfort in a tranquil retreat far from the cares of the world. The Peninsula Estate, in its scale, design, details finishes and amenities, simply has no rival.
