The Forte Village is located on the southern coast of Sardinia, just 25km south west of Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia and its eight hotels and sports facilities cover 47 hectares.

Sports are well represented here; they are used by sports academies like the Chelsea Football Academy with guest coaches such as Dennis Wise, Carlo Cudicini and Tore Andre Flo; the Tinkoff Cycling Academy supported by Tinkoff team members and the Tennis academy with Annabel Croft, Magnus Larsson and Ilie Nastase.

Some of the Academies (Rugby, Netball, Cricket) are run by Legend, an organisation founded by England’s Rugby World Cup winners. Legend’s aim is to "provide children with the best, exclusive sports training during their holiday at the Forte Village Resort, ensuring that they learn quickly and have fun at the same time, as well as giving them the chance to meet the leading champions of their favourite sports."

The village also supports triathlon and has strong links with the Challenge Family who in partnership with Forte Village have conceived the Challenge Forte Village triathlon event.

The accommodation and facilities are ideal for a warm weather training camp or a mixture of training and leisure. Non-training partners and youngsters, no matter their age, will find plenty to do within the grounds.
