There are plenty of villas, beach apartments and self-catering accommodation to suit all budgets and most are close to the sandy beach and shops. Porto Torres villas can also be rented outside the town to take advantage of the quiet Sardinian countryside.

easter holiday in Sassari

4 of 5
we had a great stay in the villa, extremely spacious inside and outside. The help of the family, both before and during the holiday was very much appreciated. Unfortunately it was still too cold to test the pool, but it looked very good! would definitely recommend this villa, also good location for exploring north-east sardinia.

Excellent family holiday villa!

5 of 5
I booked the villa for a week for a family holiday as it appeared to have everything to suit our group - 3 years up to 70 years! It did not disappoint! Beautifully light, spacious and airy and decorated with Italian style and flair and superbly maintained. The outside amenities were fantastic and we made good use of them all. Loved the little putting green! We were lucky with the weather, average mid 20s, so bravely used the pool a couple of times. The orchard provided lemons perfect for G&Ts and a few ripe figs too!! Alex could not have been more helpful from my first enquiry with excellent emailed information on the villa, the locality and Sardinia. Rhondda and Giovanni were very helpful throughout although, sadly, I didn't meet them as my daughter arrived before us. Provisions were bought in and lasagnes made for our first evening meal - thank you both so much. Alex's recommendations were superb and we had great takeaway pizza & pasta from La Chica Piperita nearby. Castelsardo, Alghero & The Grotte di Nettuno definitely worth visiting. Typically British we were the only people on the stunning 7Km beach at Marina di Sorso, but it was late in the season. Sea still warm enough for a swim though! We didn't get to the local beach, not easy to walk the busy part of the road with a lively 3 year old. Next time!!! Do try an Agriturismo if you can. Check first if you have vegetarians amongst your group like us. A. Bedda Ista was superb and worth the drive into the mountains for lunch with superb views, and much veggie food! Thanks again Alex for a great stay.
