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.

perfect couples retreat

5 of 5
owner provided all the information we needed, and was available to answer any questions. Apartment immaculate, with beautiful views and outside seating area. sun umbrella and beach chairs available to take down to the beach. Exceeded expectations. Resort quiet in September, so plenty of space on white sand beach. Need a car to get around and make the most of the area. Owners of nearby apartments very friendly. Thank you Mary for all your help

Fantastic individual villa with stunning views, close to amenities and access to the coast.

5 of 5
The villa itself is extremely well designed, with each bedroom having equally beautiful views. The main lounge area is well thought out with a clear appreciation for space and aesthetic architecture. The terraced area is large and we spent the majority of our evenings out there, enjoying the sun setting across the sea. It felt very private with dense planting to both sides and we rarely heard the neighbours at all. We are a family of five, with children aged 12, 11 and 9. The children made extensive use of the pool and were able to shower outside with warm water. We were able to walk down to the various small coves but as it was so hot we made use of the car as there was always plenty of space in the car parks. When the sea was calm the snorkling was fantastic, the sea is beautifully clear and there is no shortage of fish and other marine life. I would definately recommend a car to go exploring the nearby beaches. There are a number of restaurants, it is worth booking in advance for the better ones. When we had contact with the owner, she was easy to speak to and responded quickly to any correspondance. The whole family thoroughly enjoyed themseves and have created some unforgetable memories. Thank you.
