Make a holiday rental home or villa in Sardinia your home away from home

Sardinia, Italy

Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean, and provides a great selection of resorts and Sardinia villas for the Sardinian holidaymaker. It is situated between Italy, Spain and Tunisia, with a spectacular coastline, and shores filled with fish and shellfish. Inland, Sardinia is a mountainous island, and although the inland areas are far less known to tourists, there are some treasures to be found. Self catering apartments in Sardinia are what you make of them, and taking a holiday villa in Sardinia is the perfect way to ensure the balance of beach and culture you desire.

Things to do in Sardinia

The beaches in Sardinia are wide and sandy. The Emerald coast has become a millionaires favourite, and the luxury villas in Sardinia and exclusive yachts in the marinas are testament to this. The sea is clear, and temperatures encourage swimming from early May until November. There are facilities for sailing and deep sea fishing, as well as scuba diving and windsurfing, accessible from all Sardinia villas.

Inland, there are numerous caves to be explored in the mountains, including the huge area of ancient artificial caves at Anghelu Ruju, and the remains of Le Nuraghe are a UNESCO world heritage site. There are numerous archaeological remains hidden in olive groves around the island, dating back to as far as 1700BC, which are a 'must see' attraction on a Sardinia holiday.

Festivals are very important in Sardinia, and there is a festival during every month of the year, with folk dancing, singing and free food.

Places to holiday in Sardinia

Cagliari villas and resorts are a favourite holiday destination with many people. It is most known for its beaches, which stretch into the horizon, but also offers the protected national park of Parco dei sette Fradelli, with miles of hikes through unspoilt and dramatic landscapes.

The best beaches on the island are arguably those at Costa Smeralda on the northeast coast, and the crystal clear waters and archipelago of Della Meddalena provide perfect conditions for snorkelling. This is why Costa Smeralda has become the main tourist focus of the island.

Alghero is a charming town set just inland from the coast. It is an old fortress town which has lost little of its ancient feel, and some of the ancient defences remain, including the main gates of Porta Terra. Further inland, Nuoro is the centre for the traditional Sardinian way of life. Here, they still speak the native language of Sardo, and local crafts and culinary treats are still made using traditional methods. A holiday rental in Nuoro also acts as a base for those wanting to climb Mount Ortobene.

Weather in Sardinia

Being a Mediterranean Island, Sardinia benefits from a warm dry climate, with average temperatures in July and August of 31°C, and remarkably mild winters, with little rain and average temperatures in January of 14°C.

Travel to Sardinia

Sardinia has four main passenger airports, Caliari, Olbia (OLB), Alghero (AHO) and Tortoli (TTB). Cheap flights to Sardinia are available on many airlines from London Gatwick (LGW), Heathrow (LHR) and Manchester (MAN).

The garden leads down to the sea where my daughter enjoyed paddling and climbing over the rocks. There's a reasonable selection of shops in the village (5 minutes' drive) even out of season (late October), and the restaurant on the beach is superb. There's a fantastic selection of other beaches in the area, some of which we had all to ourselves at this time of year. We had an absolutely fabulous holiday here, loved the area and the villa and definitely hope to come back.

                                                                                                      My wife and I had an extremely pleasant and relaxing break in the Sardinian sunshine of mid-September at the Villa Allesandra in the village of Taunanella, Budoni. It is about a 30 minute drive from Olbia airport and is relatively easy to find (Homeaway provided detailed driving instructions) although at the end of our journey, it took a few minutes to realise that having turned into Via degli Argonauti, you come to a junction where you turn left for about 15 metres and then Via degli Argonauti continues on the right. Having turned right, about 10 metres on the left, you will see the gate of the little community of properties in which the villa is situated. We eventually arrived at about 8 pm and as instructed we phoned the housekeeper who opened the gate and showed us to our property. (Note that the housekeeper only speaks Italian so it helps to speak a little Italian). The villa was clean, spacious and well-appointed and the swimming pool was just great (it is big enough to swim in rather than just paddle about !). There is a shaded area on the terrace and a large table so you can eat outside if you wish. There are two small supermarkets within 5 minutes walking distance and we recommend the fresh fruit and vegetables both sell. There is also a very good restaurant within 10 minutes walking distance which we recommend. You can walk to the beaches to the North East although it helped to have Google Maps on my phone ! (By the way, there is excellent 3G/4G Mobile service in the area and good and reliable WiFi in the villa). We spent one day touring and the roads were very quiet (certainly compared to the UK) so this made driving a very pleasant experience. Sardinia has some spectacular scenery so we would advise at least one day touring. Massimo (who speaks English) was extremely helpful with all our queries both beforehand and while we were there and he clearly takes care to ensure his clients have as good a holiday as possible. In summary, if you are looking for a relaxing break with your own private swimming pool in a quiet area, we would definitely recommend the Villa Allesandra.
