Make a holiday apartment in Carloforte your home away from home

Because of its size, it may not always feel as if you’re on an island when you’re holidaying in Sardinia. If you really want to live the island life, you may want to head to the small San Pietro Island off Sardinia’s south-western coast and stay in a Carloforte holiday apartment. Accommodation in Carloforte comes in a variety of sizes, from small studio apartments for a romantic break to larger houses that can accommodate a family or group of friends. All holiday apartments in Carloforte at HomeAway are furnished to the highest standard to ensure that you’ll have a relaxing stay in this lovely seaside town.

Things to do

Carloforte is the main town and harbour on the island of San Pietro, which lies just over 4 miles off the coast of south-western Sardinia. Compared to many other Sardinian towns, Carloforte is relatively new. It was established in the 17th century. The town’s founders were a group of 30 or so families who originally came from Genoa but then resettled on Tabarka Island off the Tunisian coast to fish for coral. When the coral reserves became depleted, they moved to San Pietro Island to continue plying their trade.

-Charter a boat in Carloforte, a longstanding fishing town, to explore the beautiful coastline. You may decide to go fishing for tuna or to simply stand on deck and feel the sea breeze in your hair. Also try to make some time to visit one of the local craftsmen who build wooden boats and see how it’s done.

-Carloforte is a sailing and windsurfing Mecca. There is even a windsurfing school so that you’ll have no excuse not to try your hand at this water sport at least once.

-Hiking and rock climbing are favourite activities along the spectacular coastline of San Pietro Island. As well as the sublime beaches which attract visitors to holiday homes in Carloforte, there are high cliffs and interesting rock formations like the Columns of Carloforte that protrude from the sea. You will definitely need to bring your camera. If you prefer, you can also head inland to hike or cycle among the fields and rocky hills.

-Calasetta lies only a short ferry ride from Carloforte and is the gateway to the island of Sant’Antioco. While Sant’Antioco also has a Tabarkan heritage, archaeological evidence shows that people have been living on this island for at least seven millennia. The rugged terrain is great for outdoor activities but a trip to Sant’Antioco Island should include visits to at least some of the ancient historical sites here, including the megalithic domos de janas or ‘giant’s tombs’, the Nuragic stone towers and the remains of Phoenician, Greek and Roman settlements. There is an archaeological museum in the town of Sant’Antioco where you can learn more about these sites.

-Excellent shopping and dining is within close proximity to Carloforte holiday homes. Many of the restaurants here specialise in local cuisine and the freshest seafood, especially tuna.

Weather in Carloforte

Carloforte is hot and dry in summer, with temperatures often reaching around 32 °C. In winter things cool down to average temperatures of around 5 °C at night but daytime temperatures are mild, in the region of 15 °C in the coldest months. From September to May or June there is a good chance of rain, with November and December being the wettest months. Carloforte can also be windy, which explains why it’s such a great windsurfing destination.

Getting to Carloforte

Getting to your Carloforte holiday accommodation involves a ferry ride. You can travel in by ferry from either Calasetta or Portovesme, which is adjacent to Portoscuso. You can reach both these Calasetta and Portoscuso by bus from Cagliari. Other options include taking the train to Carbonia and then transferring to Calasetta or Portoscuso by bus or taxi, or renting a car at Cagliari International Airport and self-driving. Cagliari International Airport receives daily flights from a variety of airports in Europe.

Quirky appartment right on the beach. Small but perfectly formed

4 of 5
We enjoyed our stay here as it was not too busy and right on the beach which wasn't busy in the week and had shallow, clean waters, The facilities were adequate and it made good use of the space. The only downsides were lots of sand flies so that we had to have the windows closed at night and so it was very hot and stuffy whilst sleeping. The mosquito screens on the door seemed to be broken and there weren't any on the back window, which would have made it cooler at night. Enzo, the local contact/helper was fab and was very helpful and sociable even though neither of us spoke each others language.

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!
