About Liz Flanagan

We currently live in Surrey and have both of our families close by. Our two girls enjoy going out to the apartment mainly during the summer when the aqua fantasy is open - the picture above shows them enjoying the foam party!

Liz Flanagan purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Liz Flanagan chose Valledoria

After many years of looking to buy somewhere in Sardinia, we finally found everything we were looking for .... an apartment with a pool, within walking distance of bars and restaurants as well as beautiful beaches. The local estate agent was amazing and the town welcomed us even though we spoke no Italian! Over the past 13 years we have made many friends with the locals.

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with the apartment the moment we saw it. The gardens were beautiful and the complex was kept in immaculate condition. The apartment is situated between both Alghero and Olbia airports making it an ideal location for us and any potential guests to visit. The veranda is shaded during the heat of the day enabling you to sit outside for lunch and as the sun moves around you have the last of evening sun while eating al fresco for your evening meal. We love being on the ground floor - no lugging heavy suitcases up and down stairs!

Fantastic Family Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We had an wonderful holiday. The apartment was indeed one of the best equipped we'd ever had for a family beach holiday. The owners had thought of everything a family would need, most likely because they themselves holiday in the apartment themselves, as a family. The kids loved the clean and well maintained gardens and the pool/s. The description of local amenities does not do the place justice; everything you would need for a self-catering holiday is within a few minutes reach - e.g. supermarket, butcher, fishmonger, grocer etc. Great wine too locally produced and the guy fills up your litre bottle for a Euro or two! We have two children with a dairy/egg allergy, so eating out is difficult, but the local people were helpful and honest, so we ended up cooking at home mostly as it was safer, but the supermarkets and shops were v helpful with the allergen lists etc. They are great advocates for local produce and the furthest place some fruit had travelled was from mainland Italy. Great coffee and breakfast pastries were a 10 mins walk from the apartment - it was a must for us - everyday! You will need a car, if you want to do any exploring further afield.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end, our experience with this apartment and the owners was fantastic. Everything was provided by the owners including video instructions for facilities. The apartment included air conditioning throughout, washing machine and dish washer, TV, etc. Also available in the apartment were sun umbrellas, chairs, ice box etc for trips to the beach. The pool was great and the neighbours and apartment complex staff were very friendly. Highly recommended.

A wonderful apartment, very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely apartment in a great area. It was very comfortable for a family of 4. Excellent facilities, including air conditioning, a good kitchen/diner area, some nice outside space, and 2 good sized bedrooms. The apartment was well stocked with everything we needed for our week long stay. There were lots of toys for our 18 month old, and an excellent travel cot at the apartment. The supermarket is a very short walk away, so we were able to pick up plenty of food and drink for lunches and dinners. The apartment is set in lovely grounds, with access to a nice pool (including a separate baby pool). Swimming hats are a must, so do try and pick these up before you arrive. The apartment was well positioned for access to a variety of terrific beaches. A lovely holiday, we heartily recommend it!

Wish we were still there!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a delightful three weeks in Sardinia and can warmly recommend this apartment. As others have commented it's certainly well equipped with everything one could wish for when self catering.

In order to fully appreciate the island a car is a necessity. Having said that, there are plenty of shops locally in which you can purchase everything from fresh produce to fishing hooks and most things in between. A knowledge of Italian is useful but not essential. We ate out at a number of restaurants and all the menus had English translations. The food was of a very high standard as well.

Valledoria is on a part of the coast with 10km of sandy beaches and beautifully clear blue sea. We kept migrating back to a local stretch of sparsely populated beach a 10 minute drive away. Due to Valledorias location to the North of Sardinia we found the temperature absolutely perfect never rising much above 32 degrees and dropping to around 18-20 degrees overnight which meant a comfortable nights sleep.

A word of advice if you drive to the more popular beaches, check for parking fees. Signage is poor to non existent and we were ticketed on our first day there. The 38 Euro fine was enough to ensure caution being the watchword on future expeditions.

For those a little adventurous we'd highly recommend the Kayak excursion on the nearby river Coghinas. You choose a length of trip (we chose 3 hours) and are driven, along with the Kayaks, further upstream to make your way back to the boat hire place which is beside the main town stretch of beach. It is a peaceful way to while away a few hours and you get to see parts of the countryside and nature that would otherwise go unnoticed.

So all in all a beautiful island with fabulous beaches and plenty of child friendly swimming to be had. The apartment is very well presented in beautiful grounds with a nice pool, friendly locals and Valledoria itself is so non touristy that we only heard one English voice in the whole time we were there.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The best equipped apartment we have ever stayed in, even includes an ipod dock. Great for cooking in. Wonderful complex, very clean pool and the grounds are beautifully maintained. Very child friendly.Great info on the surrounding area provided in the apartment, all the recommendations were correct. Great beaches nearby and a fantastic water park. A perfect place to stay with small children who just want to splash and swim. Lovely, quiet and friendly. Some knowledge of italian would be very helpful and a car is an essential.Highly recommended and we hope to return.

Residence Sa Tanca is situated in Valledoria which faces the Gulf of Asinara, near the mouth of the Coghinas River. The town prides itself on having one of the most beautiful views of Sardinia's coasts. The town provides all the services that make a holiday comfortable within easy walking distance of the apartment. Another of the town's attractions comes from its success in preserving most of the local traditions and folk heritage.

Halfway between Santa Teresa and Porto Torres, Valledoria is in an ideal position for all those who wish to visit many historical and environmental attractions during short trips. Other places of interest are: Costa Smeralda, Castelsardo and Isola Rossa - not to be missed.

Valledoria also has excellent conditions for surfing, windsurfing and scuba diving.
