Make a holiday villa in Bassacutena your home away from home

Movies about Italy often show scenes where a large group of people is gathered around the table, having a long, leisurely lunch in the sun. If you would love to experience a lunch like this with your friends, look no further than a holiday villa in Bassacutena. Most of the rental properties have BBQ facilities so you can prepare that al fresco lunch and most are located in sprawling farm-like surrounds. All properties come fully furnished so you won’t have to bring your own plates. Holiday villas in Bassacutena are spacious enough to accommodate between 5 and 8 people, depending on the property, and most are pet friendly so you can bring the dog too.

Things to do

Bassacutena is a small village in the Gallura region of northern Sardinia, in the heart of farming country. Tuscan woodcutters used to frequent the area and may have given it its name. The town itself developed in the 19th century when the road between Tempio Pausania and Palau was built. Giuseppe Garibaldi pushed through a change in the route the road was to take so that it would pass through the property of a friend who owned a sheep pen here.

-The countryside around your holiday villa in Bassacutena simply has to be explored. There are many different hiking, biking and horse-riding trails in the area. They will take you through farmland and groves of oak and olive trees or you may opt to go down to the nearby Liscia River and explore its banks.

-Lago del Liscia is an artificial lake about 4 miles south of Bassacutena upstream on the Liscia River. Here you can swim, row, fish or just take in the peaceful surroundings. Along the shores there are magnificent granite structures eroded by time and you’ll also find olive groves that have been here for a millennium. There is also a spa nearby if you need some pampering.

-The beaches are a great reason to choose Sardinia. Bassacutena’s location in northern Sardinia means you’ll be spoilt for choice, with the beaches of the famous Costa Smeralda to the south-east, starting from Palau about 9 miles away, and the beaches of Santa Teresa di Gallura about 18 miles to the north-west. Here you can participate in a variety of water sports, from swimming and sailing to snorkelling and diving.

-La Maddalena Archipelago is an excellent day trip from holiday homes in Bassacutena. Bassacacutena may not have been here if it hadn’t been for the favour Garibaldi did for his friend. From Palau, take the ferry to the La Maddalena and visit the island where Garibaldi spent his final years and was buried. The islands of the archipelago also offer great hiking and water sports.

-Arzachena, to the south-east, is the place to go to if you want to stock up on provisions for your movie-style lunch at your Bassacutena holiday villa. The market there not only offers a variety of fresh produce but also typical Sardinian cheeses and other delicacies. Arzachena is also home to some of Sardinia’s most impressive Nuragic sites, including the nuraghe of Albucciu, the Giants’ Tombs of Coddu Vecchju and Li Lolghi and the temple of Malchittu.

Weather in Bassacutena

Bassacutena has the Mediterranean climate you’d want for an Italian holiday. Summer days are long, sunny and hot, with temperatures reaching around 28 °C and a shower once in a while. Winters are milder, with night-time temperatures of around 8 °C and daily maximums of around 13 °C in the coldest months. Winter is also the rainy season with November and December being the wettest months.

Getting to Bassacutena

The nearest airport to Bassacutena is Olbia-Costa Smeralda Airport, about 28 miles to the south-east. You can fly to Olbia from various cities in Europe or travel in by ferry from either Livorno or Genoa. Public transport from Olbia is not really a feasible option and it’s better to hire a car and drive to your Bassacutena holiday accommodation.

Fantastic hideaway

5 of 5
Easy to book and fantastic service from the owners made the stay so much simpler with a little one. We flew in to Olbis and the property was about and hour and a half away, plenty of supermarkets on route too. Found the villa first time, there are a couple of routes up to the house both easy. So so clean and fresh unlike a lot of holiday homes.. large rooms and the garden is just superb. There is a travel cot and put up high chair if taking littles. The pool was nippy in may but we still made the most of it! House seemed nicley nestled away from other properties too whivh is a bonus. Would recommend for all types of travellers.

Amazing view, lovely flat.

5 of 5
Fantastic view and lovely couple of terraces - one looking towards the sea and one looking towards nature and trees / bushes which means you can sit out in the sun all day across both terraces. Great flat, tastefully decorated and with everything you need. Kept very clean by Gianna. Both Angelo and Gianna were super helpful and on hand to help with anything we needed e.g. when we put on too many electricals on at once and the switch tripped. You definitely need a car as the flat is slightly out of town in an apartment complex. Supermarket only a few minutes away by car. Lovely beach only a few minutes drive from the flat, easy parking there, several bars and restaurants including a great pizzeria / pasta place. Perfect location as only 20-30minutes drive to all the famous Costa Esmeralda beaches e.g. Spiaggia del Principe (Prince's beach etc) and so you can easily do a beach crawl! We went at the end of April which was good as not too busy but we had to use the heaters as it was still a little chilly at times. A wonderful time. Thanks for sharing the flat with us.
