Experience Sardinia in holiday lettings

Postcards of the Costa Smeralda – Sardinia's uber-famous north shore – depict bays of such aquamarine sea and cotton-white sand it would make any Photoshopper proud. Only they aren't Photoshopped. In fact, the vast coastline on this handsome jewel of the Med needs no airbrushing. It's all the stuff of gasps and sighs, glimmering with wide beaches and lagoons and caves and coves. Beyond that is primeval prehistory, fascinating Roman amphitheatres, mouthwatering Italo-French cuisine, beautiful Baroque churches and Sardinia holiday rentals with panoramic pools and perches above the coast.

Things to do

Sightseeing in Sardinia holiday lettings

There's no shortage of history in Sardinia. And it's not just your usual Italian rigmarole of Roman forums and mosaics, either – although you can find those at the preserved ruins of Nora and Tharros. The story of this island goes deeper, back to the Nuragic Age more than 2,000 years BC. Prepare to be wowed by the massive megalithic monuments like the Nuraghe Santu Antine and the Su Nuraxi. You can head to the excellent Museo Archeologico Nazionale in Cagliari to try and make sense of it all once you're done.

Activities

What to do near Sardinia holiday homes

No trip to Sardinia could possibly be complete without exploring its picture-perfect coastline. You can seek out Sardinia holiday rentals in the Costa Smeralda to be surrounded by some of the most gorgeous bays and beaches of the lot – think swimming A-listers and sublime sands of chalk white. On the opposite side of the island is the untrodden Costa Verde. The inlets there are secluded and wreathed in mountains and high dunes. Other seaside treats are for the divers and surfers, popping up with the reserves of Punta Coda Cavallo and the wind-blasted Isola dei Gabbiani.

Weather

Local weather for your stay in Sardinia holiday homes

Sardinia's an island ripe for explorations in the months of the early summer. From May to June is the best of all. Temperatures then hover between 25 and 30, while there's usually nothing but sunny, dry days. What's more, the sea starts to warm at that time, making the beaches of the Costa Smeralda and Costa Verde all the more enticing. Late summer jaunts in July and August mean competing with more people for the top Sardinia holiday rentals, but you might feel the 30-plus heat and guaranteed rays will be worth it.

Natural features

Landscapes of all sorts in Sardinia

Carved through by mountains and cliffs and fringed by lagoons of crystal-clear Tyrrhenian and Mediterranean waters, Sardinia certainly deserves its reputation for natural beauty. The highest point on the island sits up on the Punta La Marmora at just over 1,800 metres. It gathers frequent snow coverings in winter, surrounded by pine woods and mountain lakes. Along the coast, caves and grottoes pierce the white-stone cliffs, while shimmering sands give way to swimming coves where corals and turtles and starfish reside.

Beaches

Holiday homes are available near places like Cala Goloritzé, a remote sand and pebble beach with a natural stone arch and towering pinnacle, and Cala Luna, a secluded beach with rocky headlands and turquoise waters with sea caves. You could also visit Capo Testa, a scenic coastal area with rocky hiking trails and coves with sandy, sheltered beaches.
