The most popular excursion from Porto Torres is a day trip by ferry to the island of Asinara.

Villa Gioya was available last minute, Florindo did us a good deal, so we thought we would try the second week in November. I was a little concerned how the weather would be so late in the season. But as it turned out, the weather was great, we had rain one day but that cleared up within an hour, then it was back to sunshine. The children love the various beaches and the snorkeling, we like the interesting places to visit, the walks, the markets, the people and of course the delicious food and wine. The issue for us has always been finding good accommodation for a large family. The properties are generally either tired or lack family facilities and certainly the wow factor. I knew we hit the jackpot on arrival, its true as Florindo says; the pictures do not do the place justice. The villa is accessed via a long gravel driveway bringing you to electric gates and entrance to the property. The villa is set in a quiet, private, rural location, which as it turned out, is close to the beach. Rhonda and Giovanni were waiting for us as promised with a number of essential food and drink items, which was a nice touch. They were available to us during our entire stay, should we have needed them, which was reassuring. On arrival, to your right you have a large mini golf course, which amused the younger ones (and male adults) for many hours. This leads you to a french bowls court which the older members of our party really enjoyed. You then have a floodlit tennis court, football pitch and a large swimming pool. There is a full outdoor kitchen under a large veranda, with a dining table for 12, plus top notch v.large BBQ, all overlooking the pool and tennis court, which was nice in the evening. There is also another veranda, which has a pool table and table tennis table. Overall the gardens are extensive with all sorts of Mediterranean fruit trees so plenty of room for the young ones to run around in a safe environment. Internally the place is brand new, all modern conveniences; it has a lovely luxury feel about the place. I liked the fact I felt like I was on holiday, in Sardinia, by the sea. No all places are like that. It was also a really great place to return to each day after we had been out and about. My favorite thing was sitting on our balcony of an

                                                                                                      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.
