Make a holiday villa in Gonnessa your home away from home

Sardinia is known for its beauty and sun worshippers flock here from all over the world for the island’s beaches. If the glitz and glamour of the northern parts doesn't appeal to you, you may want to opt for a holiday villa in Gonnesa in the island’s south-west. Here you can enjoy the natural splendour of Sardinia in peaceful surroundings and you’ll have plenty of opportunities to be one with nature. Holiday villas in Gonnesa are available in different sizes and for different budgets. Most of the rental properties here come with a garden and BBQ facilities so that you won’t even have to go very far to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle. All holiday rentals at HomeAway are tastefully furnished to ensure maximum comfort.

Things to do

Gonnesa started out as a mining town to house people who came to the area from mainland Italy in order to work in the coal mines. There is still an active coal mine in the vicinity, the last one still operating in Italy.

-The beaches are the main reason to take a holiday villa in Gonnesa. The village is situated in a hilly area overlooking the ocean and the nearest beaches are a little over a mile away. These beaches are wide and sandy with dunes and clear waters. Since it can be windy here, surf’s up for much of the time and especially Fontanamare beach is popular not only among regular surfers but also among kitesurfers.

-The beautiful countryside around Gonnessa has a wealth of opportunities for hiking and cycling, but it is also a free climbing Mecca. The cliffs towering above the sea present challenging and exhilarating climbs.

-The Nuragic settlement of Seruci is about 2 miles south-west of Gonnessa. . Still being excavated, this village dating to the Nuragic civilization of Sardinia about 3,000 years ago is the largest on the island.

-Iglesias about 6 miles to the east is an interesting day trip from your Gonnesa holiday apartment. In the pretty town you’ll find several beautiful medieval churches and the fascinating Mining Museum. You can also arrange a guided tour of one of the operational mines in the area. If you’re here in August, don’t miss the crossbow tournament and the medieval costume parade.

Domusnovas is just over 20 miles east of Gonnesa. Here you’ll find the Cave of San Giovanni, which is really a natural tunnel. It used to be possible to drive through this cave in your car but now you can only undertake the journey on foot. One of the smaller caves in the complex is the Grotto of Santa Barbara, the patron saint of miners.

-The islands of Sant’Antioco and San Pietro are another fun day trip. You can reach Sant’Antioco by road since there’s a bridge linking it to the mainland. It’s a journey of about 23 miles. San Pietro is reached by ferry from Sant’Antioco or from Portoscuso, about 8.5 miles south-west of Gonnesa. Both islands offer many opportunities for water sports like windsurfing and diving as well as hiking and cycling if you prefer solid ground. Sant’Antioco is also home to a variety of historic sites, from Nuragic to Phoenician, Greek, Roman and medieval.

Weather in Gonnesa

Gonnesa has a Mediterranean climate. In summer it is dry and very hot, with temperatures reaching a maximum average of around 32 °C. In winter it’s rainy and cool, with night-time temperatures around 5 °C but milder day-time temperatures in the upper teens. The area tends to be windy, especially in winter when the mistral blows in from the north-west.

Getting to Gonnesa

The best way to get to your Gonnesa holiday home is to fly to Cagliari and travel onwards from there. Cagliari Elmas International Airport receives flights from many European cities. You can travel from Cagliari to Goneesa by bus or taxi or you may opt to rent a car at the airport and drive the 37 miles or so to your holiday accommodation in Gonnesa.

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!
