Make a holiday villa in Olmeda your home away from home

Olmedo is a relatively small settlement, located roughly 15 kilometres southwest of the larger tourist centre of Sassari, on the stunning Mediterranean island of Sardinia. Although the area is generally quite popular with tourists, and there is a good selection of holiday villas in Olmedo, it has somehow managed to maintain its old-world charm and fantastic Italian hospitality. This makes the township a great holiday destination if you’re interested in a quiet family getaway, made stress-free thanks to your very own authentic Olmedo holiday villa.

Things to do

Although Olmedo may be a small township, its proximity to the coast and larger tourist centres such as Alghero and Sassari mean that there’s always something great to see or do. It is however, beneficial to have a hire car if you plan on exploring further afield from your Olmedo holiday home.

-Going to the beach is a definite must on Sardinia, as the island plays host to a multitude of fantastic beaches such as Lazzaretto beach, Porto Ferro beach and Fertilia beach; all of which are within an 18 kilometre radius of Olmeda. Once at the beach of your choice, you may also enjoy some of the great water sports on offer, including swimming, snorkelling, diving and windsurfing.

-The Capo Caccia National Park located roughly 20 kilometres from holiday homes in Olmeda, is a fantastic area for hiking, biking, bird watching, swimming, diving and general exploring. The main drawcard of the park however, is Neptune’s Cave, a humongous grotto filled with stunning stalactites, which will have you in awe from the moment you enter.

-Wine tasting is a superb way to pass the time on Sardinia, as the island is home to a multitude of great wineries. One such establishment located within walking distance of Olmedo is the Sella and Mosca vineyard, where a variety of mouth-watering red and white wines are available for tasting and purchase. If the wares here are not to your taste however, you need only move on to the next vineyard to continue your Sardinian wine adventure.

-The Museums in Sassari are great if you’re planning a day trip to the area, with establishments such as the Museo della Brigata Sassari (a World War 1 museum); the National Archaeological and Ethnographic Museum; the Museum of Science and Technology; and the Contemporary Art Museum, dotted throughout the township. You may also like to visit some of Sassari’s other great attractions such as the Archaeological site of Monte d'Accoddi or the The Cathedral of St. Nicholas of Bari before returning to your Olmedo holiday apartment.

-The Megalithic Complex of Monte Barantasituated atop the hill of Monte Baranta, is a fantastic historical site. Thought to date back to between 2500 and 2200BC, the location offers access to the ruins of a small settlement, a fortress, a sacred site and a long wall; all of which you can explore at your own volition.

Weather in Olmedo

Olmedo experiences a characteristic Mediterranean climate consisting of hot dry summers and cool damp winters. Whilst the summer months are generally the most popular with tourist planning on visiting the region, the mild weather means that a holiday home in Olmedo is basically the perfect year-round holiday destination.

Getting to Olmedo

Olmedo is easily reached via a short 20 minute drive from the Alghero International Airport. You may choose to cover the distance between the airport and your accommodation via taxi, shuttle bus, or hire car. Regardless of which of these options you select however, you can expect to be lying by the pool of your holiday home within roughly 25 minutes of arriving on the island.

Great Property in a Great Location

5 of 5
We found the property to be immaculate and it looked like it had only recently been completed. It has pretty much everything you need including wifi and smart TV, washing machine, toaster etc. It has a great balcony on the front and a small terrace area with sun loungers in case you don't want to go to the beach. The front window has a fantastic view of the beach, the vertical cliffs of Capo Caccia and the old town in the distance. The apartment is very quiet except there is some road noise on the front balcony. The beach is just over the road which is really handy and also there is a great bar which we frequented. There are a few restaurants around the apartment but the old town is about 15 minutes walk away where there are lots more. There are two supermarkets within 5 minutes walk which is great. We initially found the mattress a little hard for our liking but the owner Gabriele provided us with some additional quilted sheets for us to sleep on which made a huge difference. We would definitely stay there again next time we visit Alghero.

Beautiful villa, owners very kind

5 of 5
This villa deserves 5 stars, as it's really spacious and beautifully built, with a great modern design, stylish bathrooms, comfortable beds, an amazing pool and gardens. The owners are very kind and thoughtful and allowed us to check in earlier than the check in time. The villa has a secure gate and there is a lovely large space at the front for parking and a large barbeque area with a big table to accommodate guests. There's a comfortable sofa in the living room downstairs with a smart TV, a big table and a fully equipped kitchen. The pool has a shallow area for children and the rest is deep enough to dive in. The pool area has a gazebo with nice furniture, big loungers and a hammock, surrounded by gardens with olive trees and plants. The location is great, only 10 minutes drive from Platamona beach, 20 min from Porto Torres, 30 min from Isola Rossa and it took us only a couple of hours to visit the entire Northern coast. The only drawback is that we couldn't enjoy the beautiful pool as the water was too cold. We knew it wasn't heated and unfortunately the week we arrived (2nd September) the weather changed and the temperature dropped to 27 degrees outside, so the pool was about 23 degrees which was too cold for us. This is nobody's fault and the owners told us that the pool was at the right temperature until the day before we arrived as the weather was much hotter. If the owners installed a pool heating system, this villa would be a guaranteed paradise in case the weather changes, and also it could be rented in winter months (if the owners decided to).
