Make a holiday rental home or villa in Palau, Italy your home away from home

Palau is one of the most picturesque seaside towns in the Olbia-Tempio province of Sardinia – and that is quite a compliment when you consider how many of them exist. Palau is famous for its rocky coastline, with Capo d’Orso – a large rock that looks unmistakeably like a bear – being one of the most famous pieces of granite in the country, and drawing visitors for miles around. Tourist facilities in Palau are of a high standard and accommodation here is good value for money.

Things to do in Palau, Italy

Palau is an up-and-coming tourist area that is growing in popularity due to its scenic stretch of coastline. The bear-like rock Capo d’Orso is the main must-see in the town, and stands 122 metres high, looking out to sea. The rock is possible to reach on foot, and the views out over the ocean can reach for many miles on a clear day.

A good selection of bars, cafes and restaurants can be found in the town centre, and many holidaymakers are content with spending lazy days on the beach and relaxed evenings sampling the local cuisine and washing it down with a few drinks. Amenities in Palau are also good, with supermarkets, shops, banks and a pharmacy all within close reach of each other, and more to be found at the night market, which is open until midnight.

Palau can be used as a base for exploring the province, and a great way of getting around is to use the Trenino Verde (the Green Train). The train takes passengers through the lush hinterland, stops off at various lesser visited villages and towns along the way, and displays a more rural side to Sardinia than is found in the busy tourist spots of the Costa Smeralda. Palau also has a modern harbour and boat trips are easy to arrange.

Places to visit on holiday in Palau, Italy

Porto Rafael is just a ten minute drive from Palau and another pleasant seaside town. It offers a little more variety in the way of bars and restaurants, and means you only have to take a short taxi ride if you fancy a few glasses of the excellent local wine with your evening meal. Further afield, the Olbia-Tempio province is primed for day trips, with Porto Pollo (7km) living up to its name as a surfer’s paradise.

The location of your house is perfect, so close to the market, shops and harbour. We're grateful for all your tips, we've tried the restaurant recommended by you and it was brilliant, we absolutely enjoyed the sailing boat trip too. The house was very clean, everything that we needed was there, you were always happy to help and it was a pleasure to be your guest. All this combined with a lovely sunny weather and your friendly neighbours is more than enough to recommend you to anyone who wants to visit Palau. And of course if we come back, we'll check first if your house is available:) Sending you warm wishes and a huge Thank You (times 5) !! x

Perfect for a relaxing holiday in Sardinia
