Make a holiday villa in Villanova Monteleone your home away from home

There are some locations in Sardinia where you can experience the best that the island has to offer: close to the beaches and historical sites, situated in quaint villages and surrounded by stunning countryside. A holiday villa in Villanova Monteleone places you in one such a location. As if its spectacular setting isn’t enough, this hilltop village is close to many of Sardinia’s attractions so that it’s the perfect base from which to explore the island. Holiday villas in Villanova Monteleone come in different sizes, from cosy little properties for couples to rambling houses for larger groups of friends. Most have BBQ facilities and all are tastefully furnished to ensure a comfortable stay.

Things to do

Villanova is a small village located on top of some ancient hills in north-western Sardinia, about 15 miles south-east of Alghero and 23 miles north of Bosa. When the Spanish captured Alghero in 1354, that coastal town’s inhabitants were banished to Villanova Monteleone. The area has been settled for much longer, though, as the many prehistoric sites in the area show.

-The historical architecture is beautiful. The Church of San Leonardo da Limoges is the main church in town and dates from the 16th century. Another highlight is Su Palaty ‘e sas Iscolas, which used to be an elementary school built in the 19th century and now houses a museum.

-The Sardinian Anglo-Arab Horse Fair is a must visit if you love horses so be sure to book your holiday apartment in Villanova Monteleone for the latter part of June. This fair is dedicated to the local horse breed that originated in Sardinia more than a century ago. The event features horsemanship competitions and of course the chestnut, bay or gray horses.

-The Archaeological Park of Nuraghe Appiu is located a couple of miles to the south-west of Villanova Monteleone. This is a fascinating site boasting a stone tower and the remains of a Nuragic settlement that dates from about three millennia ago. Another attraction in the park is an even older site: the necropolis of Puttu Codinu. These domus de janas or ‘giants’ tombs’ date from before the Nuragic civilization and have been carved into the limestone rockface to resemble something out of a fairytale.

-Monteleone Rocca Doria is a medieval village overlooking Temo Lake about 8 miles south-east of Villanove Monteleone. With its ancient churches and the remains of a fortress, this village is well worth a day trip from your holiday home in Villanova Monteleone. The shores of the lake and the valley are great for walking, horse-riding, bird-watching and cycling. You may even spot some wild horses here. There is also some good climbing to be had in the area. If you like getting free wine, be in this village on 17 January for the Feast of Sant’Antonio Abate.

-Alghero is another day trip you shouldn’t miss making. This picturesque medieval port is the place to go if you want to be spoilt for choice of restaurants and shops. The old part of town is a maze of cobbled alleys and along the waterfront you’ll find ancient sea walls and boardwalks to stroll along and enjoy the sunset. The area around Alghero boasts some of the best beaches in Sardinia, as well as a variety of water sports.

Weather in Villanova Monteleone

Villanova Monteleone has a Mediterranean climate. In summer it can become very hot, with temperatures reaching around 31 °C and you’ll want your Villanova Monteleone holiday accommodation to have air conditioning. Rain falls during the winter months, when temperatures drop to around 5 °C. The area can also become quite windy, especially when the north-easterly mistral blows in winter.

Getting to Villanova Monteleone

To get to your Villanova Monteleone holiday villa it’s easiest to fly to Alghero-Fertilia Airport, which receives flights from several European cities. The village lies just over 21 miles to the south-east of the airport. It’s easy to travel here on the Alghero–Bosa bus or you may want to rent a car at the airport and make the drive yourself.

Die Wohnung ist super ausgestattet, wir haben nichts vermisst. In der Umgebung gibt es viele Strände zu entdecken und wenn man ein wenig wandert, findet man auch in der Hochsaison Strände wo man die Sonne und das Meer fast für sich alleine hat.

We were given a very warm welcome by the hosts on arrival and they were on hand for any questions during our stay. The villa is very well maintained, especially the huge garden and amazing pool. The pool really is a good as it looks in the photos! The villa is in a quiet location but only a few minutes drive from Alghero and numerous stunning beaches! Highly recommend the villa for a relaxing holiday.
