Dear *|FIRSTNAME|*, Lorenzo Giannuzzi of Forte Village is next up in our series ‘Waterstone: Our People, Culture and Community.’

We are proud to present this next issue in our series focusing on the people, culture and communities that make up our diverse Waterstone Collection. Throughout the series we will continue to introduce you to people who, as ambassadors for their local cultures and communities, offer a range of unique experiences with passion and a true sense of hospitality that we believe will help inspire your clients to travel again when the time is right.

“I have the privilege of working in one of the most beautiful corners of Sardinia, where the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean front the 140 acres that make up Forte Village. Our extensive grounds allow us to offer a comprehensive vacation experience for families and couples alike. Our guests can enjoy our charming hotels, spacious villas, authentic restaurants, fun filled kid-zone play areas, relaxing wellness spa facilities, lively entertainment centers, boutique shopping and legendary sports academies.

There is no compromise at Forte Village! Our goal is to exceed guest expectations with an unrivaled vacation experience regardless of age and interests. The passion and dedication of our team members, the authenticity of our destination, and our amazing range of products and services, makes Forte Village an ideal vacation experience.  Now with our recent success in providing a strictly ‘covid-free’ environment throughout the park to all staff and guests, we hope you will make Forte Village a priority on your client’s ‘must go list’."


— Lorenzo Giannuzzi, Managing Director, Forte Village 

With 90% of staff drawing from the local community (and a large proportion of them with over 20 years of service), Forte Village truly captures the soul of the surrounding Sardinian culture. Ambassadors for Forte Village and their beloved island, the team is constantly making sure that each guest experience had at the resort is purely authentic with no compromises made. 

A common theme, as Lorenzo references above, the team again allowed 'no compromises' to be made when facing the obstacles of this past year. Going beyond standard health and safety protocols, Forte Village implemented a unique and successful 'Covid Free Guest Experience' this past season through its team of resident doctors and testing facilities. As a result, guests were able to wander freely through the resort's natural, park-like setting, breathing in fresh sea air unhindered by the need to wear masks. This totally safe and private environment allowed easy accessibility to every aspect of the resort, including the range of uniquely Italian experiences designed to satisfy every generation from grandparents to small children alike through culinary, shopping, wellness, entertainment, and leisure activities.

There are a multitude of accommodation options at Forte Village within their 8 different four and five-star hotels. For maximum privacy, your high net worth clients might also consider one of the property's 13 luxurious villas, a great option for those able to fly privately once travel opens up again. With 21 restaurants available, you may want to capture your clients' dining preferences prior to their stay to help them make the most of their time on property.

For clients looking to add to the cultural experience at Forte Village, excursions can be arranged to a variety of heritage sites within an hour of the resort, including the Zuddas Caves, the ancient settlements at Nora, and the UNESCO World Heritage site at Barumini. Supplement any one of these experiences with a picnic lunch of local delicacies or stroll the alleyways and savor the culinary and cultural heritage of the region’s capital city of Cagliari. Hiking, biking, golfing, horseback riding and, of course a range of water sports, can be added to a comprehensive itinerary for a truly safe and easily accessible Italian experience at Forte Village. Why travel anywhere else?

1. Treat your clients to the extraordinary healing properties of thalassotherapy in the world class Acquaforte Spa

2. Book a family excursion into the surrounding Sardinian countryside for a picnic and discover its ancient history and traditions

3. Recommend a gourmet dinner experience, choosing from their many award winning Michelin starred Chefs

4. Renowned for its facilities for children, your clients’ kids will have fun while learning at the resort’s 'Children Wonderland'

5. At Forte Village’s Sports Academies, guests of all ages can train with an expert in any of the 16 different sports and leisure programs
