Overview

About the property

A large first floor flat with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 6

This light and spacious apartment is set in a small block only 100m from the Lido beach. It is on the first floor and is well-furnished and equipped for a comfortable holiday in Alghero. There is a large day room opening out onto a large balcony which overlooks a garden. The day room has a sitting area with comfortable armchairs, a dining area with two tables and beds for 2 people including a double sofabed. There is wifi and TV/DVD/CD and airconditioning. The main bedroom has a double bed and wardrobe space and it opens out onto a 2nd large balcony. The second bedroom has two single beds which can also be put together to form a second double bed. There is a lot of wardrobe space too. The bathroom has a shower cabinet, a wash basin, bidet, toilet and also an automatic washing machine. The good-sized kitchen has a large gas range with oven, grill and microwave. There is also a fridge/freezer, a dishwasher, a kettle, a toaster, a sink, cupboard space and a food preparation surface. We can also rent bikes and there is free parking outside the apartment block.

The countryside: Although there are mountains in many directions this is quite a fertile part of Sardinia, with many olive groves and vineyards - the wines have an excellent reputation. This is an ideal countryside to explore - north and south along the coasts or maybe inland to Sassari, the main town of the region. It’s central piazza gives it the air of a town in Tuscany. There are some beautiful beaches and coves up the coast to the tip of the island at Stintino and the nature reserve island of Asinara. Inland you can go on a winding road to the hilltop town of Villanova Monteleone, perched precariously overlooking inland lakes. To the south, the road runs south to the quaint town of Bosa, swooping up and down like a roller-coaster for 40 kms, up on the cliffs one minute, at sea level the next, and taking you to some good beaches on the way. To the north of Alghero are the dramatic cliffs of Capo Caccia with its spectacular sea caves( 700 steps down!).

Restaurants and travel: Within walking distance of the apartment are restaurants for Italian food and a famous pizzeria which sells pizza by the metre! There are bars, other shops and two supermarkets also within walking distance. The old town of Alghero is about 15 mins walk along the beach road where there are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops of all kinds. There is a weekly street market.

Set on the beach, yet only a short walk to the town the apartment is an ideal choice for those who wish to enjoy a memorable holiday without requiring a car. There are frequent buses around Alghero and to the neighbouring towns and resorts. A narrow gauge railway connects you with Sassari, the main town of the region. Rail connections then take you all over Sardinia to Cagliari and Oristano in the south and Olbia and the Costa Smeralda in the east. A weekly train in the summer goes from Sassari to Tempio, a mountain spa town with an interesting market and then on to Palau in the north of the Costa Smeralda

Walking tours and horse riding : You can reach Alghero with Ryanair low cost plane, from London, Barcelona, Madrid, Frankfurt-Hahn, Stockholm, Gothenburg, Oslo Torp, Weeze, Memmingen, Billund, Bratislava, Pisa, Milan and Rome. The airport is 10 minutes from the town. Thomson have a weekly flight from London Gatwick too. Easyet flies from London Gatwick, Bristol UK, Basel and Milan to Olbia airport, 90 mins by car from Alghero. There is a railway-station with connections from Olbia, Sassari and Cagliari. To reach Alghero by car, follow indications from the SS131 motorway and turn-off on 291 highway to Alghero.

The renters can provide accompanied walking tours near Alghero. There are short walks along the beach and sand dunes to the nearby town of Fertilia, half day walks along the coast to the vantage point of Punta Giglio with its magnificent views of capo caccia and Alghero or half day walks inland in the hills around the beautiful monastary of Valverde.

Fantastic apartment in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five..( 3 teens. )We loved staying at Gordon & Cathys apartment, they were so helpful, organising our airport transfers and dropping a travel plug and luggage scales which we'd forgotten! It was spotlessly clean and Gordon gave us lots of useful advise regarding the local area.

The old town of Alghero is beautiful.. full of cobbled streets and wonderful little shops. The whole place comes alive at night with excellent restaurants and the walk from the apartment (20 mins max) is along the seafront... endless stalls and entertainment to see. Pia Maria beach is a must see, a short walk away, white sand and turquoise sea found through the sand dunes.

Highly recommended!

Excellent apartment

  • 4 of 5

Me and my family had a wonderful stay in the apartment. It has git enough space and is close to everything. A 15 minute walk next to the sea and port supported by palm trees will bring you to the old town of Alghero. It is simply beautiful.

Perfect for the price

  • 5 of 5

The owner is very welcoming, the apartment is spacious, clean and perfectly well equipped. May be a little cramped for 7 but fitted the five of us wonderfully. It's very close to the beach and there are lots of beach stuff you can borrow, and is only a 10-15 seaside walk to the old town. There are some very nice restaurants nearby as well, along with a takeway pizza just down the road.

Five stars, couldn't ask for more! Don't be put off by what looks like a rather grim exterior.

Wonderful Alghero

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment, clean and well presented having everything that is needed - including parasols and snorkels! Apartment exetremely comfortable with plenty of room. Ideal location, very close to beach, handy for the shops and in a quiet residential area but within a short walk to the old town.

Owners easy to communicate with, very welcoming and gave great tips on what to do and see! Would definately stay again and recommend!

Alghero is on the north-west coast of Sardinia and is called the Coral Riviera. It has beautiful beaches safe for children, a rugged coast good for walking and is 10 mins from Alghero airport. Alghero is a superb holiday centre with good sandy beaches on either side of the town. There are organised beaches where you can hire loungers and umbrellas and further on there is a free area with sand dunes and some cafés. To the north-west is Alghero bay and Fertilia, with past it Porto Conte bay with glorious free beaches suitable for families. The picturesque old town of Alghero has an abundant choice of cafés and restaurants and good shopping too. The most elegant old streets surround the cathedral, at the centre of the town. There is a boat trip to the enchanting caves of Nettuno near Capo Caccia and other day boat trips as well. Outside Alghero there are interesting trips to Bosa in the south with a wonderful coast road and Stintino in the north with its fascinating harbour.

Other Activities: snorkeling expeditions to the coral reefs

Golf: There are golf facilities in Stintino to the north which is a beautiful hilltop 9 hole course. To the south there is a beautiful 18 hole course on the coast near Oristano. There is a driving range in Sassari
