Make a holiday apartment in Cannigione your home away from home

If you love the ocean and would like accommodation that will place you within easy reach of stunning beaches, fishing harbours, islands and water sports but is somewhat removed from the hustle and bustle of large tourist resorts, a holiday apartment in Cannigione is a good option. Tucked away deep in a sheltered bay in Sardinia’s north-east, Cannigione is a small town close to the area’s popular tourist resorts, yet far enough so that you can enjoy a peaceful retreat if you need one. As well as holiday apartments in Cannigione there are also villas so no matter if you’re a couple, family or a group of friends. Most HomeAway properties available for holiday rental are close to the sea and are equipped with the amenities you’ll need for a comfortable base on Sardinia’s Costa Smeralda.

Things to do

Traditionally a fishing village, Cannigione’s central location on the Costa Smeralda has made it increasingly popular with tourists. The mountains backing it means that the town has mostly developed along the coastline and most houses are within less than a mile from the waterfront. It’s a small town yet boasts most of the amenities you might need when you’re staying in a Cannigione holiday home.

-Cannigione’s main beach is towards the northern end of the village. It’s a lovely beach with fine, white sand and shallow, clear waters ideal for swimming and snorkelling. The beach has facilities like parking and wheelchair access. There are also several other stunning beaches in the surrounding area.

-Watersports have added to Cannigione’s popularity in recent years. There is a dive centre and you can also learn how to sail or windsurf here. Another option is to hire a boat or a small dinghy and go fishing or exploring the coastline.

-Bird watching is also another popular pastime. On the southern outskirts of town there is an estuary system known as Saloni. This area draws various bird species, especially herons and egrets.

-Palau is a nice trip out if you need a break from your holiday apartment in Cannigione. A few miles up the coast north-westward, this popular town is bigger than Cannigione and boasts spectacular rock formations like the Bear Rock along its coastline. A fun activity is to take a trip on the Trenino Verde to discover parts of the countryside you probably wouldn’t have seen otherwise.

-Arzachena is a market town a couple of miles inland to the south-west, of Cannigione. Here you’ll find several Nuragic sites, including the Giants’ Tombs of Li Lolghi and Coddu Vecchju, the nuraghe of Albucciu and the temple of Malchittu. Travel to Palau and then take the ferry to the town and archipelago of La Maddalena. The archipelago forms part of a national park and has many gorgeous, unspoilt beaches. There are some interesting historical sites on the main island and several hiking trails to explore. From La Maddalena town you can cross the bridge to the island of Caprera, where Italian hero Giuseppe Garibaldi spent his final years and is buried. The house where he lived is now a museum.

Weather in Cannigione

Cannigione has a warm Mediterranean climate like the rest of Sardinia. However, it’s not as hot as many other destinations on the island. In summer, temperatures reach a maximum of about 27 °C while winter days can be quite cool. Summers are dry and great for a beach vacation. Winters are generally wet.

Getting to Cannigione

To get to your Cannigione holiday accommodation, it’s easiest to fly into Olbia-Costa Smeralda Airport, which receives flights from airports in many European cities, including flights from London, Bristol and Leeds. From Olbia you can take a taxi or bus north-westwards to Cannigione. It’s also worth considering hiring a car at the airport and self-driving the 16 miles or so.

Bellissima casa in stile sardo

5 of 5
Casa molto bella e spaziosa (siamo stati in 8) con tanta cura dei dettagli. Il tutto in stile sardo. Dalla terrazza si ha una bellissima vista sul mare. In vicinanza ci sono tantissime spiagge bellissime e Simona non si è mai stancata a darci graditissimi consiglli. È sicuramente un posto dove torneremo! L'unica pecca è stato un cantiere dietro la casa che però alla prossimo estate dovrebbe essere già superato

Great base for exploring the area

4 of 5
Our first visit to Sardinia and won't be our last. The apartment was nice and clean and had everything our party of four needed. The terrace with the sea views proved to be the centrepiece and was fantastic for breakfast, lunch and evening drinks watching the sun go down. Having a supermarket next door was useful and the noise was minimal. I wouldn't hesitate recommending the apartment to anyone. Cannigione is a small town with plenty of restaurants and bars but the season ends in September so, first week in October, we struggled some evenings to find a restaurant that suited all tastes. The Hotel del Porto restaurant near the marina proved a big hit and we went there several times, Scenery in the area is absolutely stunning, we particlarly liked Baia Sardinia and taking the ferry across to Islas Maddelena and Caprera. One word of caution, beware of filling your hire car with fuel near Olbia airport. The only stations we could find were unmanned and had a crazy remote paying station that wouldn't accept any of our cards and just swallowed 20 euros because we did things in the wrong order. Better to fill up on one of the main roads on the outskirts of the city..
