A fantastic holiday for our family - a very friendly welcome and lots of helpful tips for great places to visit and see, which we took up and really improved our holiday. The house, gardens and pool are fantastic! Thank you to Irene & family for your hospitality - if we are in the area, we will definitely stay again!
We are just back from a two week holiday at the Villa in Alghero. We are a family of 5 with 3 children (11,9,5). The hosts are a lovely family who couldn't do more to help. They met us and took us to the house so we could find it easily with them. They had to come out a couple of times as the gas went off and the wi fi went down in a storm and they were with us very quickly and sorted things out and came regular to clean the pool. The villa is very comfortable for 5 or 6 people. There is also a sofa bed. There is air conditioning in the bedrooms but even though it was very hot outside during the day the rooms were not too hot at night. There is a good TV and sofa area and a kitchen which is quite well equipped. The outside space is lovely. We spent a number of days just at the pool when feeling lazy. You are in the country side so there are a number of dogs nearby but we only had one day where it was annoying. The house is about 10 minutes from town and the beach. The beach is beautiful. We went to Santa Maria Pia most days. The beach is busy but not as busy as we thought it would be be. Beautiful sand and clear seas. Good cafes serving sandwiches on the beach. You do have to pay for parking which you can do by card and is very easy. There is plenty of parking. Children loved hiring a pedalo. We tried to go to one of the smaller beaches but it is so busy there that you are sitting on top of people unless you get there early. We also went to the inflatable water park up the road towards Fertillia which the children loved. 3 hours is enough as it is hard work for the children and for us to keep up with them and not get injured! Alghero old town is lovely. Lots of good restaurants which we would advise to book. Use Trip Advisor. Parking was OK in our first week but going into August you need to be in town by 7pm otherwise parking is a real issue. We had to give up one evening. Pizzeria Lu Furat good cheap pizza. Pizzeria Le 100 also really good. Sartoria Del Gusto did lovely pasta. Nautilus was recommended but not really for children. We went to Il Corallo which had lovely fish and pasta and slightly more upmarket. Lots of fantastic ice cream shops in town. The one up beside pizzeria le 100 was our favourite. On our one cloudy afternoon we went on the town tour which goes every 30 minutes. We loved the house and the area. Would definitely come back again.
