Sassari is a Province in Sardinia, Italy, deep in the clear waters of the Mediterranean. Famed for its beaches, gastronomy and exotic Spanish influenced architecture, the Sassari Province has a sun-blessed, laid back atmosphere encompassing both the marvellous beach resorts of the coast and the settlements of the rural interior.
Much of the tourist activity you will encounter from a Sardinia villa in Sassari will revolve around the beach. The coastline is one of the most extraordinary in Italy, with white sand beaches adorning the front of tiny, secluded coves, separated by soaring white, cave adorned cliffs.
From any Sassari apartment, the towns and villages of the interior must be visited, even if it means taking an afternoon away from the coast. The Romanesque churches, architectural and archaeological gems which decorate the majority of settlements are quite beautiful, and the morning markets provide glorious fresh produce, especially seafood and olives, which in turn mean that taking self catering accommodation in Sassari a real treat.
The town of Sassari at the provinces centre has an undeniably Spanish feels, with exquisite white washed buildings and stunning carved bridges. The remarkable architecture is due to Sassari being under Spanish rule for many years, and the town being a particular favourite of the Spanish Royal Family.

Valledoria is ideally situated, concealed in the Coghinas Valley, adjoining the coast. From a Sassari villa in Valledoria you can investigate much of the region or simply walk down to the beach and swim.
