Tanaunella is a small village, situated on the north east coast of the gorgeous Italian island of Sardinia. The village’s position between the mountains and the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea, in addition to the fact that it lays slightly off the beaten tourist track, make holiday apartments in Tanaunella the perfect island getaway destination. If you can picture yourself hiking in the mountains in the morning, before heading to the beach for an afternoon in the warm Italian sun, then a Tanaunella holiday apartment may be perfect for you.
Although Tanaunella may be one of the quieter holiday destinations on Sardinia, it certainly offers holiday makers a great number of attractions and activities to choose from. The fact that the township is close to larger centres such as Budoni, also means that you can be in the middle of the tourist action during the day, before retreating to your own private oasis in the evening.
-Going to the beach is an absolute must whilst staying on Sardinia, as the island boasts some of the most stunning beaches in the Mediterranean. The beach at Tanaunella is no exception, with pristine white sands and beautiful turquoise water sitting practically on the doorsteps of Tanaunella holiday homes. If you’re looking for a little more action whilst on holidays, bustling Buboni beach is also a short 20 minute walk up the coast, and offers a range of great aquatic activities such as snorkelling, diving, fishing and windsurfing.
-Shopping in Costa Smeralda is something that everyone should experience at some point in their life, as this classy tourist town, located roughly 40 kilometres from Tanaunella holiday apartments, is known for its prestigious boutique stores, which ooze luxury and status. Whilst you may only be interested in window-shopping due to the outrageous prices, it’s still enjoyable to see how the other half live, with luxury water vessels lining the coast, while the rich and famous enjoy the world class restaurants, beaches and golf courses provided.
-Castle della Fava is a must-see historical site, situated only 10 kilometres from your Tanaunella in Posada. Built in the 13th century atop a hill, this stunning square castle (now a well preserved ruin) served as a defensive structure. Contemporarily however, the site provides a stunning view of the surrounding landscape, in addition to a glimpse into Sardinia’s medieval past.
-Hiking is a great way to spend your time whilst on holiday in Sardinia, as many of the more rugged areas of the island can only be accessed by foot. One of the island’s most challenging trails “Wild Blue”, which begins 125 kilometres south of Tanaunella, and winds its way almost 50 kilometres along the island’s spectacular east coast, may be of interest to serious hikers, although shorter trails can easily be found near to Tanaunella holiday homes.
-Golf is an extremely popular sport in Sardinia, with over 10 great golf courses dotted around the island. The Golf Club Puntaldia, located roughly 22 kilometres from Tanaunella is extremely convenient if you enjoy a round of golf, or have ever thought about taking up the sport. The fact that there is also an extremely well decked out wellness area, including everything from a whirlpool to a Finnish sauna, makes this course much more attractive for the ladies.
The best time to secure Tanaunella holiday homes is between May and October, as the region usually experiences warm dry weather during this period, which ensures that you can undertake all of the amazing outdoor activities on offer. If you choose to travel outside of peak season however, you may also enjoy the milder weather, in addition to seeing the quieter, less touristy side of Sardinia.
Tanaunella can be easily reached via a short 40 kilometre drive south from the Olbia (Costa Smeralda) International Airport. You may choose to cover the distance between the airport and your holiday accommodation by taxi, shuttle bus, or hire car, although a hire car is likely preferable, as it will allow you to stop along the way and enjoy some of the beautiful coastal scenery.
