Make a holiday apartment in Santa Maria Coghinas your home away from home

The perfect place for a small family or couple to enjoy a relaxing break is a holiday apartment in Santa Maria Coghinas. The village is located in the north-west of Sardinia and while it is small, it is close enough to many of the area’s attractions to make it a great base for a stay on the sunny Italian island. Holiday apartments in Santa Maria Coghinas come with air conditioning to keep you comfortable in the midday heat and also have access to swimming pools. Most properties have BBQ facilities and are furnished to the highest standards to ensure an enjoyable stay.

Things to do

The village of Santa Maria Coghinas lies on the banks of the Coghinas River in northern Sardinia. It used to be part of the Giudicato of Torres, which was a de facto independent state from around the 9th to the 13th centuries. It then came under the rule of the Doria family from Genoa. The village and its municipality became autonomous in 1983.

-The Coghinas River is the defining feature of Santa Maria Coghinas. Here you can swim, fish, row or simply stroll along the river banks. There are several open areas where you can have a picnic, sit back and simply watch the river run before returning to your Santa Maria Coghinas holiday accommodation. The lovely countryside of the surrounding area provides plenty of opportunities for hiking, cycling, horse-riding and bird-watching. The river flows among hills and farmland with vineyards.

-Terme di Casteldoria is just a short walk up river and is one of the best places to revive aching limbs. These thermal baths have been popular since ancient times and it’s probably not without good reason that the Doria family built a castle here, which you can visit too. The baths are situated on the banks of the river so that you can alternate between soaking in the warm pools and taking a dip in the cool river water. Spa treatments are available too if you want some extra pampering.

-Valledoria is less than 4 miles from most holiday homes in Santa Maria Coghinas. Here the Coghinas River has formed a wetland area populated by a variety of birds. There is a good beach along the river banks too.

-Watersports are plentiful along the coastline in this part of Sardinia with sailing, windsurfing, water ski-ing and scuba diving on offer. Isola Rossa is only about 7 miles away, for instance, and is a popular spot for surfers and scuba divers alike.

-Castelsardo, a beautiful coastal town, is about 8 miles to the west. If you’re interested in history and archaeology, this medieval settlement is a must. Megalithic walls from before the Nuragic people lived on the island, nuraghe and medieval buildings like the Doria palace and castle are some of the historical sights in town. Castelsardo is also home to Elephant’s Rock, which has become a symbol of Sardinia.

Weather in Santa Maria Coghinas

Santa Maria Coghinas has a Mediterranean climate with dry summers and rainy winters. Summer temperatures are slightly lower here than in many other Sardinian destinations, reaching a maximum of around 28 °C. In winter, things cool down but not too much: Minimum temperatures seldom drop much below 8 °C. Santa Maria Coghinas tends to be wetter than most parts of Sardinia and there may be the odd rainy day in summer. The wettest months are from September to May.

Getting to Santa Maria Coghinas

There are several ways to get to Santa Maria Coghinas holiday apartment. You can fly into either Alghero-Fertilia Airport, about 48 miles to the south-west, or Olbia Costa Smerelda Airport, which lies about 52 miles to the east. Both airports receive flights from a variety of European airports. Another option is to fly to Barcelona or Genoa and then travel by ferry to Porto Torres, about 30 miles to the south-west. You can then travel to Santa Maria Coghinas by bus or taxi but you’ll have more freedom to explore the surrounding areas if you hire a car.

Very nice and quiet place for family vacation

5 of 5
We were in this apartment with whole family (2 adults and 2 children age 6 and 9) in the beginning of July 2016 and we were very satisfied with apartment, all the area around as swimming pool, small garden. We appreciated a lot small distance to the beach, you need only 1 minute of walk and you are on large long beach. There is also small shop, bar and pizzeria, 2 villages with more shopping possibilities approx. 10 minutes available with car. We felt in this apartment as at home, we loved a lot these 2 weeks spent on this place.

Great holiday in a great location

5 of 5
We loved the location of this property, close enough to great beaches, mountain drives, villages, and local amenities whilst feeling like you're in a secluded rural hide away with only the sheep for company. Whilst well equipped for families as a couple we found everything homely; clean, well equipped, lots of useful items and suitably 'grown up' enough to enjoy a romantic break; sundowners watching the sunset, candle lit meals on the terrace, wine under the stars listening to the owls and the sheep bells. Northern Sardinia is beautiful, our favourite sand dune backed beaches were the local ones, the sea here was so clear and lovely for swimming in. Perfugas is a gem of a place, minutes away in the car to find local wine, cheese, fruit and vegetables in small friendly shops as well as the convenience of supermarket shopping. We had a great holiday and would recommend this part of Sardinia.

The property was well equiped, nicely furnished and SPOTLESSLY clean

5 of 5
We had a great welcome from owner Roberts's parents, Gavino and Giovanna, they were very helpful throughout our stay and live only five minutes away, Roberto is also available on the phone, should they been an issues, although we had no problems at all. We arrived to a lovely gift of Sardinian cakes, a bottle of bubbly and a full fruit bowl really thoughtful. The apartment was spotless clean and very well furnished, the kitchen cupboards were stocked with olive oil, herbs and spices etc. We spent the week relaxing, highlights of the week for us were: Isola Rossa - a lovely beach with pink granite rocks, small fish swimming in the clear water, although beware they do bit! Castelsardo was great for afternoon ice cream and downloading the daily paper. Alghero - we particularly liked wondering around the old town and sitting in a café watching the world go by. A trip to the Neptune caves is also worth a visit. We found the local bars in the village very pleasant and the locals very helpful. Many thanks a lovely holiday.
