Make a holiday rental home or villa in Sassari, Italy your home away from home

Sassari, the second largest city on Italy’s island of Sardinia, is located just a few kilometres from Sardinia’s northwest coast. This means that Sassari offers a great destination for visitors who don’t want to commit fully to a beach holiday - it is near enough to the coast to hit the beach on a sunny day, but with all the amenities of the city. A holiday villa is an ideal base for exploring the city’s attractions or venturing out to the coast on a day-trip.

Things to do in Sassari, Italy

One of the highlights of any trip to Sassari is a day spent exploring the Medieval centre of the city, with its winding cobbled streets and fantastic examples of architecture around every corner. Some of the most spectacular sights include the Duomo, the Church of Santa Maria di Betlem, the Fonte Rosello and the Palazzo Comunale.

When you’ve had enough of the cultural attractions, there are plenty of shops around Sassari for those interested in finding an Italian fashion bargain, with prices much cheaper than in the large mainland cities.

There are also plenty of restaurants and cafes around the city centre where visitors may sample traditional Sicilian fare, including fresh seafood, game and wild mushrooms.

The month of May sees two of Sassari Province’s best annual festivals - the Cavalcata Sarda folk festival, and the Fiera dell’artigianto sardo crafts fair. Visitors to the city during either of these will see the town centre brought to life as the whole town joins in the festivities.

Places to visit on holiday in Sassari, Italy

Less than a 30-minute drive from Sassari, visitors can explore the town of Alghero, with its famous Spanish wall and fantastic sandy beaches. There are also regular markets in the town where visitors can see traditional Sardinian handicrafts and pick up a few souvenirs.

Also within a few kilometres from self-catering accommodation in Sassari is the town of Castelsardo. Here, visitors can cool down from the summer heat at the water park, or view a basket-weaving demonstration, a craft for which the town is famous.

Weather in Sassari, Italy

Sassari has a typical Mediterranean climate, with hot dry summers and cooler winters. Temperatures in July and August are ideal for a beach holiday, with average temperatures of around 24C. Winters are slightly wetter, but are milder than Northern Europe, with average temperatures still sitting above around 14C in the daytime.

Flights to Sassari, Italy

Sassari is served by Alghero Airport (AHO) on the west coast, which receives flights from budget airlines Thomsonfly and Ryanair on a daily basis. The easiest way to reach your self-catering accommodation is to rent a hire car from the airport and drive the 25km to the town. This then means you will have transport to get out and see the rest of the island during your holiday.

The help of the family, both before and during the holiday was very much appreciated. Unfortunately it was still too cold to test the pool, but it looked very good! would definitely recommend this villa, also good location for exploring north-east sardinia.

It did not disappoint! Beautifully light, spacious and airy and decorated with Italian style and flair and superbly maintained. The outside amenities were fantastic and we made good use of them all. Loved the little putting green! We were lucky with the weather, average mid 20s, so bravely used the pool a couple of times. The orchard provided lemons perfect for G&Ts and a few ripe figs too!! Alex could not have been more helpful from my first enquiry with excellent emailed information on the villa, the locality and Sardinia. Rhondda and Giovanni were very helpful throughout although, sadly, I didn't meet them as my daughter arrived before us. Provisions were bought in and lasagnes made for our first evening meal - thank you both so much. Alex's recommendations were superb and we had great takeaway pizza & pasta from La Chica Piperita nearby. Castelsardo, Alghero & The Grotte di Nettuno definitely worth visiting. Typically British we were the only people on the stunning 7Km beach at Marina di Sorso, but it was late in the season. Sea still warm enough for a swim though! We didn't get to the local beach, not easy to walk the busy part of the road with a lively 3 year old. Next time!!! Do try an Agriturismo if you can. Check first if you have vegetarians amongst your group like us. A. Bedda Ista was superb and worth the drive into the mountains for lunch with superb views, and much veggie food! Thanks again Alex for a great stay.
