The Yacht Club at Porto Rotondo. The poshest place in the poshest town of the poshest area of Sardinia. Well, almost. Close from here there’s another harbor, the marina of Porto Cervo, which manages to be posher. With an average daily mooring fee for super-yachts of more than €2,500 and for local property around €9,500 per sq/m, Porto Cervo scored second in the ranking of the world’s top 10 most expensive marinas.
Who’s the first? Another Italian marina, this time in the region of Campania: the beautiful and super-charming island of Capri. The podium of this hateful contest is all Italian, with the third classified being Portofino, in the region of Liguria. So, now you can’t say I didn’t warn you, sailing in Italy can be really expensive.
How’s the town of such a rich harbor? Nothing really special. I mean, everything is extremely clean and neat and pricy, but the whole place desperately lacks of personality. It can be due to the fact that it basically turned out into a “colony” of Milanesi (people from Milan). I don’t have anything against them, but it’s evident that Sardinia has nothing to do with Milan, so re-creating a sort of sea-version of the “city of fashion” here feels quite uneasy and uncanny.
I mean, in what other Italian sea-town can you find ice-cream nowhere else than in super-lounge minimalistic cocktail-bars?!?!?
