Porto Rafael was born in the early 60’s by the visionary mind of Count Rafael Neville of Berlanga from Spain, who bought the land imagining to create his own sardinian “ Dolce Vita” hideaway. To bring his vision and dream to life, the Count had involed the local community who helped him to make this wonderful little village, an important tourist hot spot within the Southern Mediterranean region. As a matter of fact, the Count invited throuhgout the years the international jet set from the early 70’s until our modern days making this unknown little Port in Northern Sardinia, one of the most popular stops within the Mediterranean Region during those days.
Since 2016, La Scogliera Group is managing the Hotel and its Restaurant space right in the main piazza of Porto Rafael bringing a bespoke culinary experience and attentive service, keeping alive the myth and the legend of Porto Rafael and its founder.
