As we leave winter behind, our thoughts are turning to summer holidays. Sardinia is the perfect holiday destination and with this in mind, The Luxury Travel Book has just launched its Sardinia villa collection. The collection features fifteen out of this world villas on the northern shores of the Italian island, which dreams are made of. They are pricey but if you look at the weekly rate on a per person basis and full occupancy, it becomes a little more accessible. However, browsing the collection is as good as flicking through the World Of Interiors and for that experience alone, we are happy dreaming.

The properties range from four to ten bedroom villas and they have been carefully selected by this family run company, each offering the height of luxury. Booking one of these luxury properties will propel you into la dolce vita, where you can soak up Sardinia's crystal-clear turquoise waters, white sandy beaches and intriguing, luscious Mediterranean forests or nature reserves. Here is an island of unspoilt nature, a unique archaeological heritage, quintessential Italian cuisine and rich culture that is ripe for exploring.

Sardinia is easy to get to, just fly to Alghero Airport or Olbia Costa Smeralda Airport in the north of the island and the villas are but a short picturesque drive away. Guests can enjoy a variety of amenities, whether enjoying a game of tennis, indulging in a Hammam, lounging on private beaches, strolling along a private pier, or relaxing by stunning pools. Each property has something for everyone, ensuring a memorable and personalised experience in Sardinia.

We've selected five properties but if money is no object, they are all drop dead gorgeous.
