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.

                                                Great apartment close to the Centro Storico

                                                5 of 5
                                                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.

                                                Very nice apartment really perfectly located!

                                                5 of 5
                                                I can only recommend this nice small clean apartment, even better than the description :-) , well equiped, great location. 4 nights spent here...coming back soon! The owner is very kind and helpful, nice and fast communication.

                                                Отличный вид и просторные аппартаменты

                                                5 of 5
                                                Апартаменты порадовали простором - большие комнаты, два больших балкона (один из них с видом на море) и целая крыша была в нашем распоряжении с обалденным видом на море и город. До ближайшего пляжа не больше 5и минут пешком, хоть он и каменный, но понравился нам даже больше городского песчанного (до которого минут 15-20 пешком или 10 минут на автобусе Linea AP (на нем же можно добрать до пляжа Maria Pia)), т.к. тут и людей меньше и море чище (и интереснее в плане плавания с масками) и пейзажи красивее. В целом апартаменты безусловно на 5 баллов.
