Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Alghero - Villa in Alghero, Sardinia, Italy

Villa in Alghero, Sardinia, Italy

Hidden on a hillside a few kilometres to the south of Alghero, Casa Marianina offers all the ingredients for a delightful summer holiday in Sardinia.

Hidden on a hillside a few kilometres to the south of Alghero, Casa Marianina offers all the ingredients for a delightful summer holiday in Sardinia. Set by the sea, you will be able to completely unwind whilst listening to the water gently lapping the rocky shores below. The villa itself is large with a bright and airy interior. French doors lead directly into the spacious living/dining room which is finished in fresh pastel colours and complemented with tiled floors, solid wooden doors and traditional furniture. Upstairs, the double bedroom has a large floor-to-ceiling window offering delightful sea and countryside views. Without doubt, you will want to spend most of your time lounging by the pool or on the terrace soaking up the sun and simply admiring the panoramic views. Alternatively, take the nearby pathway leading down to the shore should you fancy a quick dip in the sea (rocks and pebbles). If you wish to explore further afield, drive along the spectacular coastal road into Alghero just a few minutes away, or towards the south, and wander around the medieval quarter of Bosa.

ABOUT AREA

Alghero is an interestingly varied town with a historic core, green outskirts where our properties are situated, a sweep of easily reached sandy beaches and some more modern areas perhaps of less interest in themselves until you need a supermarket or the children demand 'seaside attractions'. First, the historic centre demands your attention. Walk around the fortified walls, with the sea breaking on the rocks at your feet and admire the great defensive towers. Turn into the tangle of cobbled lanes to visit the Duomo (cathedral) and other public buildings, most of which clearly display Catalan influences, as do many of the street names. When you have done your dutiful sightseeing, find a small restaurant or pizzeria and afterwards go shopping, window or real, in one of the many small but generally chic boutiques. Many older buildings in the centre have only recently been restored and you will still find an occasional fisherman mending his nets in a doorway, however the serious fishing activity has its centre in the harbour just to the north of the walls and you can find the accompaniments to your main fish course in the daily market a short walk further. Starting to the north of the harbour and close to the built up areas, the beaches begin and stretch with a few breaks, right around the north of the bay and well beyond the town. In general, the further you go out of town, the more beautiful the beach and less crowded. At the furthest point west lies Capo Caccia, up to 300 metres high, a startling sheer silhouette in the sunset.

BEACHES

The Maria Pia beach, still in Alghero is a beautiful sandy bay backed by pinewoods. More beaches are to be found as you journey further around the bay of Alghero and around Porto Conte bay and beyond it.

On the way to Porto Conte, just past Fertilia, try the beaches of Lazzaretto with superb views across to Capo Caccia and Le Bombarde, a strip of pure white sand bordered by crystal clear sea.

To the south towards Bosa, the coastline tends to be more wild and rocky – a paradise for snorkellers and scuba divers. There are a couple of sandy beaches including La Speranza which lies about eight kilometres south of Alghero.
