Make a hotel or self catering Villa in Porto Torres, Sardinia your home away from home

Port Torres is a popular holiday resort on the northwest coast of the lovely Mediterranean island of Sardinia. It is part of Italy and the main language is Italian, although English is widely spoken in Sassari Province. You may also hear a little Sardinian spoken by the locals too. 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.

Porto Torres was a sizeable city even in Roman times and the Roman antiquities are a major attraction, along with the beach and diving sites. Visitors will love the rich and diverse Sardinian cuisine of seafood and Italian dishes.

Things to do in Porto Torres, Sardinia

Most people visit Porto Torres for the sandy beaches, which are beautifully set in bays along the coastline. The beaches are a delight on which to sit, with golden sand and clear blue waters setting the perfect beach scene.

The most popular excursion from Porto Torres is a day trip by ferry to the island of Asinara. This island was formerly a prison, so fishing in the area was prohibited and this has resulted in it becoming one of the richest seabeds in the world – ideal for divers to explore. Corals, anemones, starfish, octopus, moray eels and many other fish can be seen in this underwater park. The whole of the island is a National Park, and along with the prolific birdlife, visitors can see the small white donkeys which are native to the island.

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).

Lovely self-contained small villa in beautiful location

5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for a week for our silver wedding anniversary and we had a wonderful time. The villa was comfortable and had a beautiful view over the garden and open countryside to the sea, it also felt private because of its separate location and parking. The weather was a bit changeable when we stayed, but we spent every night on the veranda watching the sunset/ clouds/ stars or moon and listening to gentle clonking of sheep and cow bells (not loud enough to hear indoors and together sounding a bit like a wind-chime). We snorkelled from 7 or 8 different beaches and watched spectacular waves crash in on the days when the weather prevented this. We visited ancient ruins, attractive towns (Alghero is not too far away) and spectacular caves. We could have eaten out more than we did...but we wanted to be back on the balcony by sunset, so we settled for barbecued fish, pasta, salad, bread, cheeses and wine 'at home'. Wherever we went the people were really welcoming and tolerant of our minimal Italian. It was a fantastic holiday and we'd go back tomorrow if we didn't have to work!
