Sardinian private island goes on sale for less than £1m

AOC Group has put a 200-acre private island just off the coast of Sardinia up for sale, but Isola di Mal Ventre comes with a catch.

 

Who among us hasn’t dreamed of owning their own private island? The allure of a Robinson Crusoe meets Richard Branson lifestyle is an undeniable as it is expensive. But what if you could own your own island for less than £1 million? Surely there’d have to be a catch, right?

AOC Group is selling a 200-acre island off the coast of Sardinia for 1.2 million euros (£952,000) and the only catch is; it’s empty.

Isola di Mal Ventre has been inhabited on-and-off since the Roman times and has a well and building foundations, but as far as man-made structures go, that’s about it.

Instead, the new owner is promised “beautiful sandy beaches” and “a wide variety of flora and fauna”. The sellers even suggest that it “may be possible to construct a jetty”, allowing short hops to the mainland in a matter of minutes.

What’s more, they quote a local architect, who says that a “low-rise eco-style villa” could be constructed on the largely granite island.

Private islands don’t often go up for sale in the Mediterranean, and AOC Group estimates that this is the only one currently on the market.
