LE TONNARE, THE RESORT WITH ORIGINS DATING BACK TO ANCIENT TIMES
The old tuna-fish facility has been kept intact over time in the heart of the Village, beside the beach.
The nearby, more recent buildings were erected in the 1980s as part of a project to preserve the existing structures and make a new development in the area in front of the beach.
FROM ANCIENT TIMES TO TODAY
Since 2008 the Villaggio Le Tonnare has been run by MARCEGAGLIA Hotels & Resorts and has been the subject of a number of investments by Italia Turismo, a subsidiary of the Marcegaglia Group, which has raised the value of the entire Village.
The hotel complex was built along the north coast of Sardinia, in the Gulf of Asinara in an area known as the Tonnara Saline, just 2 km from Stintino, a well-known fishing village which nowadays earns its living from tourism.
On the coast going eastwards, about 30 km away, stands Porto Torres (the ancient town of TurrisLybissonis) which is the most efficient port for crossings to/from Genoa and Livorno. It also enjoys a fine historical and artistic heritage.
If you go westwards along the coast towards Alghero, you come to Argentiera with its old disused mining facilities and the fascinating historic miners' village.
THE PROJECT LE TONNARE
The redevelopment of the old tuna-fishing village, in the heart of a residential tourist district overlooking the sea, lies within an area characterised by typical plant life belonging to the Mediterranean maquis, with a vast area within the concession dedicated to sports facilities and decorative gardens.
The project includes works on the current 4-star Village with an extension of 80-100 new rooms and the building of additional sports facilities.
The current accommodation includes 182 apartments and the extension work will increase this to 270-290 rooms over an area of 80 hectares.
