Costa Smeralda -- “The Emerald Coast.” It's as bewitching as it sounds. A jetsetter's paradise on Sardinia's northern shore, this bit of granite-scattered landscape frames a mottled-blue, unbridled portion of the Mediterranean Sea. Billionaires anchor their yachts in Porto Cervo, and patronize the village's upmarket shops, bars and galleries. Join the frivolity when you check into the sun-dappled Hotel Pitrizza, Beware: You might fall in love at this intimate, 55-room retreat on the beach, which boasts romantic nooks and crannies aplenty.
