Sardinia is a short haul holiday destination that can be reached by a 2 hour flight, or ferry and car or train. It is not a mass market destination and it is a relatively unspoilt island with little or no 'high rise' building and very strict building regulations to prevent spoiling this beautiful island.
Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean, lying west of the Italian mainland and south of France and Corsica, yet it can be reached by a mere 2 hour flight from the UK.
Just Sardinia are committed to promoting Sustainable Tourism through good practice and awareness. Through hard work and perseverance, Just Sardinia are very proud to have been awarded the AITO 4 Star ST Award, because of our commitment to the environment and with special commendation for initiating the 'Just Sardinia Green Award' to help encourage our suppliers to get involved.
We work with local suppliers operating not only in the more popular coastal resorts but also less frequented rural locations (rural sardinia).
Our clients are provided with a small guidebook, which includes useful Italian phrases and local restaurants, shops etc offering local produce in order to promote informed tourism and support the local economy. Where possible we employ local representatives chosen for their wealth of knowledge, expertise and love of the island who in turn recommend local excursions thus generating employment.
We abide by office etiquette including recycling, reducing paper usage, conserving energy, lift sharing and cycling.

Just Sardinia have devised a green tree rating awarded to our accommodation suppliers in order to promote and encourage responsible tourism.
The ‘Green Sardinia’ scheme was new in 2008 and we do not expect all our properties initially to be able to achieve an award however, it is our intention to encourage compliance wherever possible, taking into account the following criteria:
We ask all our customers to follow our green charter, a few simple things that can make all the difference to the environment and ensure that we are all responsible tourists.
