Located in the mountainous heart of Sardinia, a holiday rental property in Nuoro is the perfect base for your exploration if you are looking for a taste of real Sardinia.

Things to do on holiday in Nuoro, Sardinia

There are a surprising number of attractions to visit within the town boundaries. The Ethnographic Museum is a major attraction, depicting the life and struggles of Sardinian communities throughout the ages, with displays of jewels, tools, crafts and clothing. Nuoro is host to the Sagra del Redentore in August, which is a really traditional religious festival where the real Sardinia culture is impossible to ignore. The bright clothing and frequent cultural festivals really do give a vivid insight into the Sardinian way of life from years gone by, although many will argue the culture is as strong today as it ever has been, which is why holiday rental accommodation in Nuoro is such a tempting prospect.

Nuoro is a great base for walking holidays to Sardinia. A local favourite is the walk from the town centre to the summit of Monte Ortobene, a vertical trip of almost a kilometre. From the statue of Jesus which marks the top, the views over the town and across the island and the sea are unbeatable. However, there are no limits to the number of sensational walks through the remote wilderness of Nuoro Province. There are some amazing geological formations throughout the highlands of Sardinia, including red granite, marble and limestone landscapes adorned with traces of the past, from as far back as the Neolithic ages.

During the summer months, the many miles of untouched, unspoilt beaches are a huge attraction to international visitors. There are a whole range of fantastically romantic little cove beaches along the Nuoro coast, where you can find a little cove to yourself, shared only with the rare bird species which call Nuoro home.

The accommodation was perfect, spacious, easily accompanied 6 adults, clean, good quality rooms and kitchen, lovely outside area for meals. AC worked well. Good sea views. Really is 5 minute walk to the beach. The small seaside town of Calls Gonone is a pretty small town, good mix of shops and restaurants, quiet. The beach is beautiful, clear waters, even in busy season was not crowded plenty of space. The sea was great for swimming and snorkelling, loads of fish to see. Overall a relaxing beach holiday, in beautiful setting, highly recommended.

The garden is a good size providing privacy. The outside showers are very practical when returning from the beach. There are numerous small beaches all in walking distance. The only thing missing (accoding to the kids) was a wifi connection!
