Most properties have BBQ facilities and are furnished to the highest standards to ensure an enjoyable stay.

    Things to do

    The village of Santa Maria Coghinas lies on the banks of the Coghinas River in northern Sardinia. It used to be part of the Giudicato of Torres, which was a de facto independent state from around the 9th to the 13th centuries. It then came under the rule of the Doria family from Genoa. The village and its municipality became autonomous in 1983.

    -The Coghinas River is the defining feature of Santa Maria Coghinas. Here you can swim, fish, row or simply stroll along the river banks. There are several open areas where you can have a picnic, sit back and simply watch the river run before returning to your Santa Maria Coghinas holiday accommodation. The lovely countryside of the surrounding area provides plenty of opportunities for hiking, cycling, horse-riding and bird-watching. The river flows among hills and farmland with vineyards.

    -Terme di Casteldoria is just a short walk up river and is one of the best places to revive aching limbs. These thermal baths have been popular since ancient times and it’s probably not without good reason that the Doria family built a castle here, which you can visit too. The baths are situated on the banks of the river so that you can alternate between soaking in the warm pools and taking a dip in the cool river water. Spa treatments are available too if you want some extra pampering.

    -Valledoria is less than 4 miles from most holiday homes in Santa Maria Coghinas. Here the Coghinas River has formed a wetland area populated by a variety of birds. There is a good beach along the river banks too.

    -Watersports are plentiful along the coastline in this part of Sardinia with sailing, windsurfing, water ski-ing and scuba diving on offer. Isola Rossa is only about 7 miles away, for instance, and is a popular spot for surfers and scuba divers alike.

    -Castelsardo, a beautiful coastal town, is about 8 miles to the west. If you’re interested in history and archaeology, this medieval settlement is a must. Megalithic walls from before the Nuragic people lived on the island, nuraghe and medieval buildings like the Doria palace and castle are some of the historical sights in town. Castelsardo is also home to Elephant’s Rock, which has become a symbol of Sardinia.
