So we headed to a island of Sardinia, where it’s not startling for people to strech their centenary years in a many pleasing vicinity imaginable.

It’s too early to contend if a time there has stretched a lifespan into a triple figures, yet check behind in seventy years or so.

In a meantime, we spent a few days there as a estimable investment in healthy living*.

*Also to go on holiday.

Here’s since we should book a last-minute outing to get your Italian repair this summer, with forlorn beaches, fresh fish and a bluish sea to burst into from your boat.

No filter (Picture: Jen Mills)

Yep, like we said. A cluster of Sardinian villages make adult one of a initial ‘blue zones’ identified in Europe – where people live a scarcely prolonged time.

It’s not called a ‘blue zone’ since of a sea and sky (although we know since we jumped to that conclusion).

But ‘blue zone’ refers to something else (Picture; Delphina)

It means it’s one of a places on earth where people live a longest.

In Sardinia, a normal life camber is over 90 (in a UK, it’s 81).

Why? Well, several theories have been put forward. But it’s tough to dislike life when it starts with an Italian espresso, involves a prolonged lunch with internal white booze and is backlit with a Mediterranean sun.

You competence need to pierce there for a full benefit, yet a week’s mangle has to be a homogeneous of quitting cigarettes for a bit.

We hired a vessel from a hotel, afterwards used it to try a seashore (and sunbathe on a rug like rockstars).

3. You can take yourself on a honeymoon

No doubt, this is a regretful place to be.

Maybe not a apartment for singular travellers (Picture: Jen Mills)

And couples, don’t censure us if we skip a moody behind and accidentally have to live out here for ever.

But if a special someone you’re reconnecting with is yourself, that’s OK too.

This is a restaurant. It looks opposite in a evening, yet (Picture: Jen Mills)

Book a list during Li Zini restaurant, that is substantially a many pleasing place to eat in a whole world.

During a day, it’s your ideal chill-out beach.

But in a evening, don’t be astounded if we don’t recognize where we were looking out to sea earlier.

There are dozens of lifelike islands and villages to explore, so ask a captain to take we La Maddalena or Buddeli beach where a pinkish silt is universe famous.

We’re not vital that life during a impulse – we’re articulate rational deliciousness done with healthy mixture and lashing of olive oil.

Make certain we try a normal Sardinian flatbread called ‘pane carasau‘ (or piano paper for a skinny texture).

Perfect for mopping adult a salsa from your genuine Italian rigatoni.

6. The spas

If we insist (Picture: Delphina)

We stayed during Valle dell’Erica hotel, tighten to a northern indicate of a island (if we transport only adult a coast, we can see a French island of Corsica).

It’s run by Delphina, who possess several other hotels charity ‘thalassotherapy’ or salt H2O therapy.

Each of a hotels is in endless drift with isolated bedrooms (so private, there are windows in a showering – so we can demeanour out a sea with no regard for your modesty).

Or by feet (Picture: Jen Mills)

Across a island a stone formations are so thespian they seem like they could be active volcanos, yet they indeed from erosion over thousands of years.

Or only float (Picture: Jen Mills)
