Hotel Cala Di Volpe, Sardinia, Italy
In the movie The Spy Who Loved Me (1977), James Bond (Roger Moore) and Anya Amasova (Barbara Bach) stay at Hotel Cala Di Volpe on the Italian island of Sardinia.
In a stunningly beautiful corner of Sardinia, Cala di Volpe (translates to the 'bay of foxes') lies in the most spectacular stretch of coastline, where the lush green vegetation, turquoise sea and sandy beaches combine to create a Mediterranean paradise.
After meeting Q at the small port of Palau, Bond and Amasova drive to the hotel with the white Lotus Esprit. They walk through the beautiful lobby and check-in under the name Sterling. They take "suite A5, a sitting room with two bedrooms".
The hotel can be seen clearly in the next scene when Naomi (Carolina Munro) arrives on the speedboat to pick up Bond and Amasova and take them to Karl Stromberg's (Curd Jürgens) hideout Atlantis.
We see the hotel again briefly when Bond and Amasova drive away in the Lotus, unknowingly on their way to a spectacular chase which ends in the famous scene where the Lotus dives underwater and reappears on the beach.
The luxurious hotelsuite where Bond and Anya stay is actually a bar of the hotel, so even if you don't stay at the hotel, you might be able to visit the room while enjoying a bottle of champagne or a Martini with a view of the bay.
Cala Di Volpe is one of the most expensive hotels in the world, a favorite of many celebrities and well worth a visit for Bond fans.
