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.

We flew in to Olbis and the property was about and hour and a half away, plenty of supermarkets on route too. Found the villa first time, there are a couple of routes up to the house both easy. So so clean and fresh unlike a lot of holiday homes.. large rooms and the garden is just superb. There is a travel cot and put up high chair if taking littles. The pool was nippy in may but we still made the most of it! House seemed nicley nestled away from other properties too whivh is a bonus. Would recommend for all types of travellers.

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.
