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).

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      Location suited out needs exactly as this is the first time our much travelled family has visited Sardinia and what an enjoyable experience it was, as it gave us the opportunity to travel around this area without going too far. I would suggest the villa is not within walking distance of the village if you are not very fit as it is on a main road and the heat in summer would not make it a pleasurable experience. The villa had lovely views and was in a quiet location off the main road into Baja. The extremely clean swimming pool was hardly used and my daughter had it all to herself several times. A beautiful beach a 2 minute drive is at Porto Solo with a WC and reasonably priced sun beds and refreshments and very helpful staff, mostly used by locals and extremely safe for me being a poor swimmer, also there were not too many "sellers" which invaded other beaches we tried. The owners are delightful and we were welcomed with wine and a fruit tart as we were celebrating our Golden Wedding Anniversary with our two "adult" daughters. Being British, there was no kettle with which to boil water for tea, but Mrs Milly the owner's representative, produced one the next day for our use. The accommodation was very clean and very well furnished with china, cutlery, and utensils. The beds we all agreed were some of the best we have slept in and the Air Con worked well in the bedrooms. Mrs Milly's boat Hot Wind was a great experience helped by a good mix of nationalities who all integrated well and a memorable day was had by all. The Agriturismo venue near San Panataleo was another great experience, but you do need to book. Just one point, taxis are a rareity and very expensive, so someone has to drive if you want to eat out in the evening and have a drink. One minor point, we would recommend sliding bolts be fitted to the bathroom doors. We will be returning to Sardinia for sure, probably just as a couple.

Loved the open plan living of the main living area and the outside areas were perfect for enjoying the sunshine and shade at all times of the day. Pool is simply gorgeous!! Slightly disappointed that the downstairs room had a damp smell - maybe just the time of year - and it would have been nice to have had a change of towels/linen once during our week's stay. The recycling/refuse collection takes some organisation but wholly worth the effort. Beaches close by are fantastic. Loved the fact that we could walk down to 'Daddy's Cafe' for our morning coffee and the lady in the supermarket next to the bread shop was so lovely and friendly - I'd recommend using both to anyone staying at Villa Cool.
