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 view from the terraces is stunning, the perfect place to relax, after a day at the beach or on the water. The house is charming with room for 8-9 people in four bedrooms. It has a roof-top terrace, two levels of garden, nice furniture and is very stylish. The kitchen is fairly small, but it works and with the barbecue it's easy to cook for the whole family - unless you just want to take advantage of the restaurants in the village down below. Cala Gonone has lots of nice restaurants and bars, but you should go there because it gives access to a string of beaches, only accessible by boat or foot.

First of all, it was located in a heart of Cagliari - Marina - full of restaurants, cafes and really vivid part of the city. Just to mention that from a little balcony in the bedroom you can see a gelateria downstairs offering great selection of ice creams’ flavors… And that’s just for start. Every step you take you can find a place to ‘dine and wine’. Historical district of Cagliari – Castello – is walking distance from the apartment. The flat itself is very well equipped – it has everything you need for shorter or even longer stay, including dish-washer and washing machine if you find helpful to use it. If you need to go bit further – there are two bus stops near the apartment – city buses in Cagliari are cheap and quite well functioning. Last but not least – Ilio and Pamela are very friendly, open-minded and helpful people. They would do their best to make your stay enjoyable. They also picked us up from the airport and gave a lift back which was very helpful. That was great choice for a place to stay in Cagliari. I can recommend it with a pleasure.

Francesco, the owner, was very helpful. I had been to other parts of Sardinia before, but the Gulf of Orosei is now my favorite. There is a lot to explore and the mountains and beaches are wonderful. You can walk to town in the evenings (the nearest restaurants are about 10 minutes walking) as there is a paved bright pedestrian pathway along Via del Mare (3 minutes from the house) all the way to the town centre. The local beach is 5 minutes walking in the opposite direction.
