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 villa itself is a good size, modern, clean and bright. Air conditioning worked well, and the kitchen had everything we needed for simple meals. We enjoyed eating all our meals at the large tables outdoors. The pool is a good size, clean and with enough space in both the shallow end and deep end for us all to play in. There is plenty of outdoor seating space and a small lawn on which to play. Manuele was very helpful and responded incredibly quickly to any queries. We would highly recommend Villacool!

It had everything we needed and the owner, Malcolm, was always available if we needed anything during our stay. The grounds surrounding the property are extensive, with lots to explore. The terrace out front was always shady and a lovely place for meals or games, The pool is fantastic - clean and well-looked after, the water always warm. It was a great place to cool off when it got hot. There is a gate to the pool area so that it can be closed off if you have young children. We received a lot of information on the property and area from Malcolm before we arrived. The property is about 5 minutes drive from the nearest village (Erula) which has a small grocery shop, but the town of Perfugas, 10 mins away, has everything you would need - supermarkets, pizzeria, cafes, bank etc. remember that most places close between 1pm and 4pm! The nearest beach is about 20 km away. We found the beaches to be clean with really clear water, although when it's windy there are waves (which our kids loved). The water park at Isola Rossa is also fantastic for kids, from all ages.
