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.

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.

The apartment is lovely, very spacious and beautifully decorated, the layout is perfect for a group of friends or family with four really good sized bedrooms two bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen and great communal spaces, we spent most of our time on the two terraces, perfect for eating and drinking together whilst enjoying the beautiful Sardinian weather! Anna Maria was a perfect host, the sweetest lady - charming, warm and helpful, she made us feel so welcome and at home :) The location of the apartment is great, the neighbourhood is lovely and quiet, so very relaxing but all amenities, shops and cafes super close and the old town just a short walk away. I would definitely recommend this apartment for a stay in Alghero and I hope that we will return and stay again very soon!

We loved our holiday not only for the stunning beaches around Alghero but also because the property facilitate our staying ... lots of space, nicely decorated and fully fitted kitchen ... The property is located in a calm and beautiful country side spot just 5 mins driving for Alghero ... which means we enjoyed the lovely Alghero and also lots of sleeping without the annoying down-town noises . The pool is nice size pool and very useful specially if you have kids. The owners are super nice and helpful ... Thanks Alan and Marianne.
