Italian croissants


Croissants are for me a symbol of breakfast on vacation, and it was no different in the case of Sardinia. Croissants spread from France all over the world, but their origin is reportedly in the Viennese sweet roll Kipferl, which dates back to the 12th century. Croissants are also very popular in Italy, where a large variety of flavors are available. Italians have their own version of the croissant with a slightly different recipe – they call their version cornetti.

Pistachio croissant

Pistachio croissants absolutely won me over. Between the individual layers of dough is a delicate pistachio filling. If you have the opportunity, I definitely recommend trying it.

Chocolate croissant

You can recognize the chocolate croissant by the chocolate chips on the surface. The chocolate filling is very delicate, its taste reminiscent of Nutella.

Whole grain croissant

The integral croissant was not only made from whole grain dough, but surprisingly also hid a filling – a slightly bitter orange marmalade. A delicacy.

The price of individual croissants from the Frau bakery was around 1.20 EUR.

And what is your favorite croissant?

Accommodation in Sardinia
I recommend the beautiful hotel Green Village in the village of Villasimius. You will be in the middle of green garden, the room facilities are new, the hotel has a private beach area with free sunbeds and towels. I spent my summer holiday in 2022 right here and it was perfect.
