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.

However being so close yet so quiet at night we were not disturbed at all. the apartment is spotlessly clean with all ameanities available upon our arrival we were met by the lovely Rita who run through everything with us and gave us a contact number in case of any problems or queries. The owners Chris & Tracey have done a marvelous job of the decor very tasteful and in full tradition of Sardinia and descibed it absolutly to the letter in their advertisment. I can only recommend this property as it is a typical taste of Sardinia. We had every intention of hiring a car to explore the island but ended up staying in Alghero as it is so interesting with its history and buildings, which means we will have to book another stay and this is going to be our first choice without a doubt Our final day we walked to the next town via the beach around 5 miles around the coast then got the bus back only €3 for both of us the Alghero beach bus is €1 each per trip.if you dont want to walk Ther are so many restaurants we ate in a different one each night I would like to inform any future visitors that the streets and pavements are cobbled and uneven so sensible shoes are a must Ladies no Killer heels!!! A thouroughly enjoyable stay Thank you Chris & Tracey

                                                                                                    This was a wonderful experience. The villa is a little 'tired' having been built in the 1970s, and is showing signs of wear (and thus the 4 stars - if one could grade 4.9, this property would get it), but it is in an idyllic location, half way up the hill looking out west over the sea, with the tower of Old Alghero visible to the north. The swimming pool is a delight, and dinner on the terrace every evening was a wonderful way for the group together and talk through their experiences of the day. The coastline below the property is rock-pool rather than sand - a good place to snorkel. Silvia, the housekeeper, is charmingly helpful - her advice was thoughtful and useful, and she took great care to assist with local issues. We arrived very late (at midnight) to a clean villa with everything ready for us, and Silvia and Daniele very kindly showed us round, despite the late hour. We could not have been better looked after. This is a wonderful piece of Sardegna, away from the crowds and dust. Old Alghero is endlessly charming, with history and shops crammed into narrow Catalan alleyways, and plenty of gelaterie. Coming back to the villa in the evenings was always welcome, though we took several days just to enjoy the peace and quiet of the place itself, while the children played in the pool.

Even though we arrived at 11.30pm we were greeted with a friendly smile to collect our keys. Nothing is too much trouble and the addition of two fold up sun loungers and an umbrella was fantastic, leaving us free to explore the beaches that do not have loungers and umbrellas to rent. The pull-out bed was extremely comfortable and our 14 year old daughter said it was more comfortable than her own bed at home! It was extremely hot when we arrived and the air conditioning was brilliant cooling the apartment down. We would highly recommend the bakers at the end of Via Arduino for delicious croissants and bread. We discovered a suberb restaurant serving the Sardinian speciality, suckling pig, and would highly recommend it - La Saletta. The Latino cocktail bar up on the bastion wall is another recommended spot – lovely place to sit, enjoy a cocktail or two and watch the sun go down. We hired a car for the duration of our stay and with a little patience found free parking every day only a five minute walk from the apartment. We enjoyed our stay again so much that we have booked for a long weekend in October.
