Make a holiday villa in Santa Maria La Palma your home away from home

The sunny climate of Sardinia makes this island the perfect place to go to for a summer holiday. This part of Italy has everything, from glorious beaches to rugged inland countryside. If you’re looking for a rural getaway, look no further than a holiday villa in Santa Maria La Palma. This village in the north-eastern part of the island is surrounded by farming country where you can breathe in the fresh air and simply relax. However, it’s close enough to some of Sardinia’s most beautiful beaches and towns that you won’t ever have to feel bored or isolated. Most holiday villas in Santa Maria La Palma come with BBQ facilities and, in some cases, luxuries like a swimming pool and most are suitable for large groups, making them perfect for the kind of Italian-style family gathering where everyone gets together for a long lunch in the sun.

Things to do

Santa Maria La Palma is a small village about 7 miles to the north of the busy town of Alghero. Fertile plains dotted with green hills make for a stunning environment in which to live the good life.

-The countryside surrounding your Santa Maria La Palma holiday home simply begs to be explored. There are many paths suitable for cycling, hiking and horse-riding. This agricultural region focuses on some of the staples of Italian cuisine: There are vineyards as well as ancient olive groves and fig orchards.

-Alghero is well worth the short trip. Alghero is a beautiful medieval seaside town with several museums and historic sites. Don’t miss a stroll along the sea front with its centuries-old walls and boardwalks. The Wednesday market offers delicious local produce but you’ll also find plenty of great shopping in the town’s many little boutiques and shops.

-Beautiful beaches are within close proximity to holiday bungalows in Santa Maria La Palma. Here you can sunbathe, build sandcastles, swim or participate in a variety of water sports, from snorkelling and scuba diving to windsurfing.

-The nuraghi of Saint Imbenia and Palmavera, both only a couple of miles to the south-west in the Porto Conte area are must visits if you have an interest in history and archaeology. Nuraghi are stone towers built by the Nuragic people who lived in Sardinia about 3,000 years ago and are unique to the island. While the Nuraghe Palmavera is the more impressive of the two sites, Saint Imbenia also boasts the remains of a Phoenician necropolis and a Roman villa, bearing testament to some of the cultures that used to live in Sardinia in the past.

- Neptune’s Grotto is a must-see place in this part of Sardinia. Located at Cappo Caccia to the south-west of Santa Maria La Palma, it’s an easy drive or cycle away but if you want a special treat, take a boat from Alghero. You have to go down to sea level to reach the cave’s entrance and the kids might think they’re in a scene from a film about pirates. Inside, the stalagmite and stalactite formations are reflected in the still waters of an underground lake.

Weather in Santa Maria La Palma

Santa Maria La Palma has a sunny Mediterranean climate. Summer days are long, hot and dry, perfect for an outdoor lifestyle. However, temperatures can reach a maximum average of 31 °C and you may want to opt for a Santa Maria La Palma holiday villa with a swimming pool. Winters are rainy, especially in November and December, and cool. Like in most of Sardinia, it can be windy.

Getting to Santa Maria La Palma

Alghero-Fertilia Airport is less than 3 miles to the south of Santa Maria La Palma and receives flights from several airports in Europe. While the village is on the bus route between Alghero and Sassari, it may be best to rent a car at the airport since your Santa Maria La Palma holiday accommodation may be a little off the beaten track.

We wanted a quiet and secluded villa that could be a million miles from civilisation but still within easy reach of the local town and beach. Sassari proved to be exactly what we hoped for. It is located a short drive off the main road past farmers fields and in its own, ample and private grounds. The villa is well appointed and spacious with all basic needs well covered. We stayed in to eat some evenings, sitting at a dining table surrounded by wall to wall windows providing a panoramic view of the country side and in the near distance, the incredible aqua/blue sea. This also proved to be very easily accessible via a short 5 to 10 minute drive. The beach was beautiful and long with, of all things, Flamingos! The little nearby coastal town of Stintino proved to be in easy and quick driving distance. This is quiet in early June and has some lovely little restaurants and also a well appointed supermarket. It's also where we caught the boat for a 20 minute ride to the island of Asinara and took a day long 4 x 4 trip with a wonderfully informative guide. The island is now a nature reserve but also has a fascinating and frankly amazing history of having prison facilities used for Mafia bosses. It also has free roaming wildlife including albino donkeys. Perhaps what was most amazing were the fantastic beaches we got to stop at during the visit. We've never seen water so clear and so blue; wonderful. This proved to be typical of this entire area of Sardinia. The nearest main town is Alghero, an easy 30 minute drive on good roads. It has an "old town" on the coastline that was wonderful to walk around, with lots of lovely restaurants. We found a spanish tapas bar too that sold Iberian Ham. It was fantastic! We caught a boat from here to Neptune's Grotto. Its a cave about 30 mins away by boat that is full of stalactites and stalagmites. It's impressive but the boat journey there and back was more impressive with Dolphins swimming with us! After hot days out the villa was wonderful to come back to. Always cool and comfortable with a fabulous little pool to take a cool dip in. In early June the water was warm enough to swim around in comfortably. The pool also had an area nearby that provided shade all day from the sun and was a wonderful little retreat when needed. We had a loveley time at the villa; quiet, comfortable, cool and relaxing.

Located about a 15 minute walk from both Alghero old town and the nearest beach, the apartment is very spacious, clean and modern throughout with all the amenities one could need and more. It has a powerful shower, large king size bed and great air conditioning. It also benefits from a huge private balcony which is a lovely space to relax with a glass of wine or beer and a spot of lunch. It also has its own parking space. Alessandro was very welcoming and helpful and generously stocked the apartment with water and coffee for our arrival which was really appreciated. He also made checking in and out of the apartment very easy and hassle free. Alghero is a lovely town to walk around and explore especially with an ice cream or two. The surrounding beaches and towns (Bosa, Stintino etc) are also amazing and well worth a visit. All in all we had a fantastic holiday and can't wait to return one day soon. Thanks Alessandro!
