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.

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
