Make a holiday apartment in Calasetta your home away from home

If you want to escape to an island and somehow a place like Sardinia is just not island enough for you, you may want to consider a holiday apartment in Calasetta. Located in the north-west of Sant’Antioco Island off Sardinia’s south-west coast, Calasetta offers the feeling of living on a small island while being close enough to bigger Sardinia’s amenities and attractions if you need more action. Most apartments in Calasetta are especially suited to small families or groups of friends. HomeAway rental properties come in a wide variety so that it’s easy to find one that will suit your budget, no matter how big or small. Some properties come complete with their own swimming pool or BBQ facilities and most place you within easy reach of the beach.

Things to do

Archaeological evidence shows that the Calasetta area has been inhabited since antiquity. Today’s inhabitants, traditionally a fishing and farming community, are descended from a group of Ligurian families who settled the island of Sant’Antioco in the mid-18th century and founded the town of Calasetta. These roots are evident in the local dialect, which is a form of Genoese.

-Stunning beaches are within easy access of Calasetta holiday homes. These include Sottotorre beach right in town, near the harbour, as well as Salina and Grande beaches a little further afield. These beaches boast white sand and clear turquoise waters.

-Calasetta harbour is the ideal place starting point for a boat trip. Use the opportunity to go fishing or simply anchor in one of the many sheltered coves along the coastline and spend the day soaking up the sun and diving into the crystal waters when you need some cooling off.

-Hiking, cycling and rock climbing are all great ways to explore the rugged coastline in the Calasetta area. From your Calasetta holiday villa, simply head towards the coast and then go in whichever direction you prefer, whether it’s towards town or away from it. You’ll be rewarded with stunning views and great subjects to photograph, such as the Mangiabarche lighthouse.

-Archaeological sites are dotted all over the area around Calasetta such as old limestone kilns, nuraghi and domus de janas, prehistoric tombs that look like fairy houses carved into the rock. The most notable nuraghi are those of Scarperino, Rassetto and Acqua Dolce.

-Sant’Antioco is ideal for exploring if you can’t get enough of historical sites. Linked to the rest of Sardinia by bridge, Sant’Antiocco dates from nearly three thousand years ago and boasts remains from ancient civilisations like the Phoenicians and the Romans. There is an archaeological museum in town too.

-San Pietro Island is a short ferry ride from most holiday homes in Calasetta. The island makes for a great day trip, whether you want to go shopping or exploring the streets of the main town of Carloforte, whether you want to hit the beach or whether you want to go hiking along the island’s coastline or into its rocky interior. Carloforte also has a windsurfing school if you feel it’s time to learn a new skill.

Weather in Calasetta

Calasetta has an arid, Mediterranean climate. Summer days are long and sunny and can become very hot, with temperatures reaching about 31 °C. Winters are cool to mild and see some rain. It can also become very windy in Calasetta, especially with the prevailing north-westerly winds beating the coastline.

Getting to Calasetta

The easiest way to get to Calasetta is to fly into Cagliari Elmas Airport, which receives flights from several destinations in Europe. Cagliari is about an hour from Calasetta. From Cagliari you can take a train to Carbonia and then take a taxi or bus the rest of the way. It’s also an option to take a bus directly to Sant’Antioco and then just transfer onto a Calasetta bus or to arrange a private airport transfer. Your best bet, however, is to rent a car at the airport and self-drive to your Calasetta holiday villa. This will give you the opportunity to appreciate the landscape and the freedom to explore Sardinia at your own pace.

Lovely apartment and ideally situated

5 of 5
Annalisa's apartment was such a gorgeous place to stay. My 16 year old daughter and I had 4 days there and we loved the town, the beaches, the little streets and most of all the apartment. It was very well-equipped, cosy, we could eat out on the little balcony/patio area, the air-conditioning worked, the beds were comfortable and we had all we needed in the kitchen. Annalisa was an incredibly helpful host who answered all our questions before we arrived and was warm and welcoming when we got there. Thank you!

Super für einen süditalienischen Meeraufenthalt

5 of 5
Mir hat das Haus sehr gut gefallen. Die Lage ist mit möglicher Laufdistanz zum Meer und ins Dorf optimal. Das Haus ist gut möbliert, alles da, gute Küchenbestückung, mit Stereoanlage und Liegestühlel. Ich werde dieses Haus wieder wählen, wenn ich italienische Italianita vermisse.
