One such establishment is the Cantina Santa Maria La Palma, which lays just 6 kilometres from Guardia Grande.

Either way however, you’re guaranteed the adventure of a lifetime.

We wanted a quiet and secluded villa that could be a million miles from civilisation but still within easy reach of the local town and beach. Sassari proved to be exactly what we hoped for. It is located a short drive off the main road past farmers fields and in its own, ample and private grounds. The villa is well appointed and spacious with all basic needs well covered. We stayed in to eat some evenings, sitting at a dining table surrounded by wall to wall windows providing a panoramic view of the country side and in the near distance, the incredible aqua/blue sea. This also proved to be very easily accessible via a short 5 to 10 minute drive. The beach was beautiful and long with, of all things, Flamingos! The little nearby coastal town of Stintino proved to be in easy and quick driving distance. This is quiet in early June and has some lovely little restaurants and also a well appointed supermarket. It's also where we caught the boat for a 20 minute ride to the island of Asinara and took a day long 4 x 4 trip with a wonderfully informative guide. The island is now a nature reserve but also has a fascinating and frankly amazing history of having prison facilities used for Mafia bosses. It also has free roaming wildlife including albino donkeys. Perhaps what was most amazing were the fantastic beaches we got to stop at during the visit. We've never seen water so clear and so blue; wonderful. This proved to be typical of this entire area of Sardinia. The nearest main town is Alghero, an easy 30 minute drive on good roads. It has an "old town" on the coastline that was wonderful to walk around, with lots of lovely restaurants. We found a spanish tapas bar too that sold Iberian Ham. It was fantastic! We caught a boat from here to Neptune's Grotto. Its a cave about 30 mins away by boat that is full of stalactites and stalagmites. It's impressive but the boat journey there and back was more impressive with Dolphins swimming with us! After hot days out the villa was wonderful to come back to. Always cool and comfortable with a fabulous little pool to take a cool dip in. In early June the water was warm enough to swim around in comfortably. The pool also had an area nearby that provided shade all day from the sun and was a wonderful little retreat when needed. We had a loveley time at the villa; quiet, comfortable, cool and relaxing.

Located about a 15 minute walk from both Alghero old town and the nearest beach, the apartment is very spacious, clean and modern throughout with all the amenities one could need and more. It has a powerful shower, large king size bed and great air conditioning. It also benefits from a huge private balcony which is a lovely space to relax with a glass of wine or beer and a spot of lunch. It also has its own parking space. Alessandro was very welcoming and helpful and generously stocked the apartment with water and coffee for our arrival which was really appreciated. He also made checking in and out of the apartment very easy and hassle free. Alghero is a lovely town to walk around and explore especially with an ice cream or two. The surrounding beaches and towns (Bosa, Stintino etc) are also amazing and well worth a visit. All in all we had a fantastic holiday and can't wait to return one day soon. Thanks Alessandro!
