Make a holiday apartment in Alghero Old Town your home away from home

Going on holiday with others can be a little tricky. Some members of the group may want to stroll around in ancient cities or learn about history in museums while others may prefer lazing on the beach. Some may want to spend their days in shops and restaurants while others would rather explore the great outdoors. One way to solve the problem of finding a way to please everyone is with a holiday apartment in Alghero Old Town. Holiday accommodation in Alghero Old Town places you within easy reach of a wide range of attractions and activities, no matter what your preference. HomeAway presents cosy holiday apartments in Alghero Old Town as well as villas in budget options to luxury rentals. All properties are furnished to a high standard to ensure a comfortable stay in Sardinia.

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.

Weather in Alghero Old Town

Alghero Old Town has a pleasant Mediterranean climate. Summers are dry and hot, with temperatures often reaching into the thirties. Winters are cool and wet and between September and April there are strong north-westerly winds. This is of course perfect for sailing and kite-surfing.

Getting to Alghero Old Town

The easiest way to get to Alghero is to fly into Alghero-Fertilia Airport and then take a taxi into town. You can also reach Alghero by train or bus from other destinations in Sardinia. There is a good public transport system in the area and it’s worth noting that while some Alghero Old Town holiday accommodation options have parking facilities, the narrow streets aren’t car friendly.

The historic old town was just on the doorstep and all the restaurants and shops were only a minute away. All the facilities and amenities in the apartment were just as described. The apartment is beautifully decorated and very comfortable and we hope we might be able to visit again some time next year. Would highly recommend and would visit again to this lovely location.

The apartment is lovely, very spacious and beautifully decorated, the layout is perfect for a group of friends or family with four really good sized bedrooms two bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen and great communal spaces, we spent most of our time on the two terraces, perfect for eating and drinking together whilst enjoying the beautiful Sardinian weather! Anna Maria was a perfect host, the sweetest lady - charming, warm and helpful, she made us feel so welcome and at home :) The location of the apartment is great, the neighbourhood is lovely and quiet, so very relaxing but all amenities, shops and cafes super close and the old town just a short walk away. I would definitely recommend this apartment for a stay in Alghero and I hope that we will return and stay again very soon!

Great living in the heart of Alghero- what a thrill to lean out the window to hang out the washing! Loved having two bathrooms & this apartment has a wonderful friendly ambience. Alghero was a good base for exploring South to Bosa & the nearby National Parks- our host had supplied lots of great information. Thanks for our memorable stay & being so hospitable. Louise Sept 2016
