Things to do

Even though people have been living in the area since prehistoric times, the medieval town of Alghero was founded at the beginning of the 12th century. Its founders were Genoese, but over the centuries the town was ruled by various European royal houses. This has brought a unique cultural flavour to Alghero, most notably evident in the fact that more than a fifth of the population still speaks Algherese Catalan, a dialect unique to Alghero, as their first language.

-A guided walking tour is a great way to discover the medieval architecture with its gorgeous old churches, towers and old city walls. You can also simply leave your holiday apartment in Alghero Old Town to stroll around in the maze of narrow little alleys letting fate be your guide. Be sure to take a walk along the seafront-facing walls and boardwalks too and don’t forget your camera.

-Museums are a great way to find out more about the area’s fascinating history, and there are several in Alghero. They include the Museo Archeologico della Città and the Museum Casa Manno for historical artefacts and the Museo Diocesano d'Arte Sacra for religious art. The Museo del Corallo is all about the endangered red coral that Alghero is famous for.

-Food and shopping are essential features of a great holiday, so you’re in for a treat in Alghero. Put on some comfortable shoes for navigating the cobbled streets of the Old Town: The most difficult part is deciding which of the many shops, boutiques, restaurants and bars to visit first. You can also visit one of the daily markets or the big weekly one held on a Wednesday for fresh produce and local specialities like Mirto liqueur. If you’re planning on renting an Alghero Old Town holiday villa or other accommodation in March or April and you have adventurous taste buds, be sure to check out the Sea Urchin Festival.

-Neptune’s Grotto, about 10 miles west of town at Cappo Caccia is a must-visit on a day when the sea is calm. This breath-taking cave with its underwater lake and entrance at sea level is like something out of a pirate’s tale. You can get there by boat, on foot, by bicycle or, if you want to feel very Italian, by renting a scooter.

-Outdoors activities are plentiful in the area around Alghero. There are great beaches, hiking and cycling trails, horse-riding, bird-watching, rock climbing and water sports. The area around Neptune’s Grotto is regarded as one of Europe’s best scuba-diving sites, especially for cave diving.

                                                                                              This apartment was just wonderful, opposite the beach, with some fantastic restaurants and bars just around the corner and an easy walk to the old town which has plenty of excellent restaurants, bars, high end shops and small gift shops all around the cobbled streets. This sea facing, ground floor apartment is in a small block of approximately 8 apartments, it was immaculately clean, well maintained and overlooks a beautiful well kept small garden. We were greeted by Raphael who oversees the apartments who could not do enough for us. The apartment consists of one large double bedroom, 2 fully fitted bathrooms (one that had the washing machine in) and a large room which has the kitchen, a dining table and a bed-settee. The kitchen itself had a large fridge freezer and plenty of pans, plates and glasses etc. The bed linen was crisp white and towels soft and fluffy. Outside the large terrace stretches the length of the property, with an outside table and chairs, 2 sun loungers and an airer. This property is perfect for 2, there is the option of 2 further people staying because of the bed-settee, but not a great deal of privacy for them as it is in the main room. There is parking at the rear of the block. Alghero was just lovely and I would definitely go back again, the beaches were not too busy whilst we were there and the temperature was approx 30 degrees. The walk along the beach promenade to the old town took 15 minutes at a gentle pace, bikes can be hired from many places, the boat trip to the caves is definitely worth a trip and most restaurants had good quality fish, pasta or pizza to chose from at a very reasonable price. Highly, highly recommend a stay at this beautiful apartment.

The shops, bars, restaurants are nearby. The apartment is comfortable and well-maintained, its garden is nice, cool in the summer heat.

                                                                                              The modern apartment was bright, spacious and very clean. It didn't feel at all like a holiday home, but more like a real home. The rooms are large and comfortable and have views of the sea and City from the 5th floor windows and balcony. The kitchen is well equipped with everything required to cook at home if you wish. Both bathrooms were clean and functional. The location was perfect, in residential area close to the sea and within walking distance of the historical centre of the City and it's many shops, bars and restaurants. We particularly liked Movida and The Kings for dinner and Caffe Latino for a light lunch. As we had a car we also explored the nearby Spiagga delle Bombarde, Stagno di Calich and Ponte Romano, and also Capo Caccia and the Grotte di Nettuno (which can also be reached by boat from Alghero harbour if you don't fancy the 656 steps down and back up afterwards if you go by car!). We also liked the towns of Stintino and Capo Falcone - both a little further away. Bruno was very friendly and helpful in getting us settled into the apartment and provided us with some local recommendations. There were also books, maps and other guides available in the apartment for our use. Parking very close to the apartment during the daytime was sometimes a challenge. We found it easier to park the car on the other side of the park (overlooked by the dining area window), a 2 minute walk from the apartment. If we return to Alghero we'd certainly like to stay at the apartment again.
