According to the legend Rafael was moved to Porto Rafael by a dream appeared to him one night: a small beach with a few houses in the middle of vegetation in front of a blue sea with in the distance other islands. So Rafael left Paris first heading to Nice and Corsica and finally in 1959 to Sardinia in search of a place similar to the one of his dream.
During his search Rafael met Paul Cudoni who, along with his family, was the owner of part of the coast from Punta Sardegna to Palau. Cudoni first led Rafael to Nelson Bay thinking that this was the most beautiful place for the wide beach and the proximity of Palau, but neither this place matched Rafael’s dream. They then follow the only dirt path that then existed, towards Punta Sardegna, toward what it would become the famous Piazzetta, and stopping in front of a marshy ground full of eels he said: “This is the place I dreamed! “. Rafael and Cudoni agreed the purchase of 3 hectares of that plot at the price of two millions per hectar, with an option for another 140 hectares at the same price.
