Make a holiday villa in Giba your home away from home

Situated on the southern end of the island of Sardinia, Giba is a charming rural area just 10km from the coast and is home to exquisite holiday houses. Ideal for families and groups in search of a relaxing holiday, Giba holiday villas often come with great perks like a swimming pool or outdoor dining area. HomeAway has a good variety of holiday villas in Giba as well as apartments to suit all budgets and tastes. All properties are furnished to a high standard and provide the perfect base for exploring lovely southern Sardinia.

Things to do in Giba

Giba has a little bit of everything. It’s mainly a farming area that grows everything from artichokes to tomatoes, but the coast is very accessible as well. The region is also filled with the remnants of ancient civilizations in the form of ruins and nuraghi. Giba holiday accommodation puts visitors close to the action, where there are plenty of things to see and discover.

-Sea kayaking and snorkelling are lovely activities along the unspoilt south western coastline of Sardinia. Visitors staying in Giba holiday villas can easily take a day trip across Cagliari to Villasimius. There are over a dozen spotless beaches here boasting crystal clear waters. Numerous tour operators organise sea kayaking excursions in the area, and snorkelling equipment is also readily available for purchase.

-The Domus de Janas (Chamber Tombs) are known as ‘House of the Fairies’ in Sardinian, and these impressive ancient tombs date back to as far as 3500 BC. One such structure is located near Giba and is attributed to the Ozieri culture who inhabited the island nearly 5000 years ago.

-Meurra Nuraghe belong to the ancient Nuragic culture, which was unique to Sardinia and the Muerra Nuraghe is a giant stone structure located near Giba. Nuraghi are an unofficial symbol of Sardinia, as they do not exist outside of the island. It dates back to the Bronze Age and is one of several notable Nuraghi in southern Sardinia.

-Festivals are one of the highlights of travelling to Giba. These festivals are excellent opportunities to learn more about the Sardinian culture and to interact with the locals. The Artichoke Festival and the Bread Festival, held in spring and summer respectively, celebrate Giba’s agricultural heritage. Visitors can taste local breads, oils, cheeses and fruit during the multi day festivities.

-Roman ruins are present around Giba. The Romans came after the Nuragic and Ozieri cultures and they left their mark on Sardinia. There are two main sites of note that are close to a majority of holiday apartments in Giba - a Roman villa and road, and the ruins of a thermal bath.

The Weather in Giba

Like the rest of Sardinia, Giba enjoys fairly temperate climates throughout the year. The tourist season generally runs between May and October, when high temperatures hover around 25°C. August is the warmest month, with highs regularly topping 30°C. The months of July and August are the most ideal for beach and sun lovers. Not only is it warm and sunny at this time of the year, but the water temperature is quite warm as well. Visitors not looking to spend that much time in the sea will find that May, September and October offer the most pleasant outdoor temperature for a stay in a Giba holiday home.

Getting to Giba

Of the three major airports in Sardinia, Cagliari International Airport is the closest to Giba. Popular airlines like EasyJet, British Airways, Air Berlin and Luxair all operate flights to Cagliari on a regular basis, especially in the summer months. It is possible to fly direct from London or take a connecting flight from a major city in Italy (e.g. Rome, Milan, Venice, etc). Upon arrival at the airport, there are several on-demand taxi services available to travellers, as well as numerous car hire companies. Giba is approximately 58 km the airport, which equates to a scenic 50 minute drive through the Sardinian countryside.

The villa was perfect clean, well equipped, has a great pool. The owner was very nice and tried always to help if necessary. We spent very nice holidays in Villacool and would definitely recommend it to our friends.

Large house in a great position for exploring the region

4 of 5
A house with huge rooms and high ceilings on one level. It's comfortable, with a certain lived-in, faded charm and the facilities you need are all in place. The house is in a great position on the edge of town, next to a park and the Lungomare sea - front. It's an interesting 10 minute stroll up to the centre of Sant'Antioco town. It's also easy to get out of town to explore the island and to cross the causeway to get to the wider region. You have hundreds of eating choices nearby and none disappointed us. There's a good SuperPan supermarket 3 mins walk away. Leave the house and turn left out of the gate, then walk left through the alleyway. The owner is charming and unobtrusive.

good semi detached property very convenient central location ,

4 of 5
Marguerita was lovely and very efficient in helping . A very welcoming meat platter was appreciated. I feel that the proper is over priced ..it is lovely but from the pictures looked a lot larger and high in quality , where actually it is a semi detached property ( fortunately there was no one occupying next door on our first week ...we are a party family!).there was no coffee cups , the recycling was a headache as there was no organisation at the villa for it,it would have been good to have organised areas ,bags and larger bins to accommodate this. Some accessories a little low quality- hair dryer,towel rails,garbage bin .It would have helped to have dishwasher tablets available .i feel picky but i did search for a high end(in price )villa ...so was expecting high quality all round .I would definetly recommend this villa but perhaps valued a little less.
