SETTING & STYLE
Forte Village Resort occupies a private estate of over 100 acres of mature pine trees and fragrant, tropical gardens, on the beautiful stretch of coastline known as Santa Margherita di Pula.
Protected by a range of rugged hills, the resort sits directly beside a beautiful, white sandy beach, lapped by a crystal - clear sea, making it the ideal location for the 8 hotels, 44 suites and 8 villas, the resort has to offer, which include the luxurious Cala Del Forte, Beachcomber and Boasthouse suites.
A professional and dedicated team, providing the utmost care and attention, ensure the enjoyment of both adults and children.
For 18 years, Forte Village Resort has held the title of the World’s Leading Resort regognized by World Travel Awards, and in the last years it has also been awarded the Leading Luxury Beah Resort, Leading Luxury Family Resort, Leading Sports Resort and Best Wellness Retreats. Guest satisfaction scores 90% in 2016 and by the summer 2017 the resort will be beautifully refurbished with a renewal of programs and activities.
The perfect setting, the sub-tropical gardens fragrant with the aroma of pines, rosemary and countless other plants, plus the beautiful presented and varied menus from a choice of restaurants, innumerable sporting facilities and children's clubs, all combine for a truly memorable holiday experience.
Piazza Maria Luigia is the heart of the Resort, especially in the evening, when guests can meet to watch or participate in the entertainment provided on the stage. The newly renovated arcade of shops stays open until late evening and includes a perfumery, jeweller, hairdresser tobacconist and news stand.
Numerous boutiques offer both designer and sports wear by a wide range of international brands such as Cartier, Zegna, La Perla, Class Cavalli & Just Cavalli, Gucci, Bulgari and Fendi, whilst Petit Bateau cater for the children. This is the ideal place to meet after dinner, for a chat, a walk or just to have a drink with friends.

'Facilities excellent, weather as hot as ever and food delicious. Our six year-old son thoroughly enjoyed the Chelsea Football Academy and our eight year-old daughter swimming. The quality of service at Forte Village is outstanding and the familiarity of longstanding staff is reassuring. We all returned to the UK refreshed and relaxed. There is no doubt we are Forte Village "promoters" and would have no hesitation whatsoever recommending a holiday there.' T. - July 2015
'We had struggled to find an active holiday for the grandchildren and the prospect of problems travelling as a wheelchair bound grandad. However from the greeting on arrival when we met the general manager and Mara, our holiday was exceptional. Mara and her colleague were very helpful in enabling us to access the restaurants, and attentive staff helped us overcome obstacles. The wonderful landscaped gardens are highly attractive and there is good access to most activities. The food and general service had the charm and the welcome of families. The staff and management were highly proactive to any situations that arose. I would recommend the village with its sport facilities and professional help. An excellent relaxing holiday for us all, young and old.' Susan - May 2015
"We have been going to Forte Village for over 20 years, I love it! I hope the new changes don't change it too much." - Sept. 2014
