@wolf asks:

My wife are considering going to Sardinia this September.  We know nothing about the island.  I.e. what part of the island to go to.   We'd like to stay in a nice 4-5 star hotel that's right on the ocean, with a beautiful beach.  Any advise would greatly be appeciated.

Hello everyone! I am from Brazil living in Italy for two years. I am a resident in Sardinia. If there is anyone who is thinking of moving in here that I can help out with any advices and suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Hi everyone,We're new here and have a question. We own property in Sardinia that we'd like to rent out for summer. Can someone recommend a good place to post rentals (other than Air B&B)?
