About The Safar Estate, Romazzino, Costa Smeralda

Romazzino Trophy Estate
Costa Smeralda, Sardinia, Italy

This one-of-a-kind property is one of the most exceptional waterfront estates in the Mediterranean, set within a stunning 2.3 hectares private park in the Bay of Romazzino, the most prestigious and renowned location on the Costa Smeralda, Sardinia.

This extraordinary property comprises an impressive 350 metres of coastline with two unspoilt private beaches, two private jetties and a mooring buoy to berth a superyacht.

The property boasts three Mediterranean-style villas, each with a newly constructed guest house, large terraces, a swimming pool and beautifully landscaped grounds that slope gently down to the sea.

One-of-a-Kind Trophy Estate on the Costa Smeralda
The property has flourished under the stewardship of a prominent Costa Smeralda family since the early 1970s. After purchasing their initial parcel, Villa Seralia, they bought the two neighbouring villas, Badr and Safar. The three guest houses were added and newly built four years ago.

The three main villas are exemplars of the classic Stile Smeraldino (Emerald Coast style), designed by Michele Busiri Vici and Luigi Vietti, two of the original architects recruited by His Highness the Aga Khan to create the ultimate summer resort. His vision: to integrate the constructed landscaped environment while preserving the beauty of the coastline. The architects also set out stringent building regulations for construction in the Village of Porto Cervo, considered a masterpiece of urban design.

A Unique Architectural Provenance
The characteristic style of the Costa Smeralda is inspired by the traditional Mediterranean style: organic and apparently spontaneous, irregular and simple shapes, with low horizontal forms hugging the landforms, with rustic accents and arches framing the views and living spaces.

Also characteristic is the use of local and natural materials: granite, terracotta, rough wood, pastel plaster with natural pigments, all anchoring the main living spaces around a central patio that opens onto the gardens and the sea.

Villa Safar, designed by Michele Busiri Vici, highlights the architect's predilection for soft, smooth lines, which are also found in Hotel Romazzino, the exclusive five-star resort with beach and spa located in the same bay and which gives its name to the area.

Each villa has a prominent waterfront setting with covered verandas, lush gardens, an outdoor pool, and guest house. In addition, there is the Busiri Vici-designed guardian's house, a detached, single-story dwelling with three bedrooms and three bathrooms, and a stand-alone storage building.

Picturesque Waterfront Grounds
The private park extends across 2.3 hectares (5.68 acres), with verdant lawns and Mediterranean plants such as bougainvillea, jasmine, hibiscus, pine and olive trees. The alfresco spaces include elegant open-air lounges, sun decks and terraces with outdoor kitchens, barbecues and pizza ovens, two secluded sandy beaches, two jetties and a mooring buoy that can accommodate an 80-metre (262-ft) yacht.

An Unrivalled Location
This trophy estate is located in the most prestigious residential area of the Costa Smeralda, just minutes away from the 'Mediterranean's premier beach resort & spa', Hotel Romazzino. The Pevero Golf Club is a 5-minute drive away. Porto Cervo is 10 minutes away: its glamorous nightlife and restaurants and the legendary Yacht Club Costa Smeralda, founded in 1967 by H.H. the Aga Khan, are still a beacon for royalty and film stars.
