The Sardinia region
Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. The island has a typical Mediterranean climate. During the year there are approximately 300 days of sunshine, with a major concentration of rainfall in the winter and autumn, some heavy showers in the spring and snowfalls in the highlands. The average temperature is between 11 to 17 °C (52 to 63 °F).The Mistral from the northwest is the dominant wind on and off throughout the year, though it is most prevalent in winter and spring. It can blow quite strongly, but it is usually dry and cool and makes for a sailor's paradise.
Alghero a town of Spanish origins on Italian territory, considered by many to be the most fascinating on the island. The Spanish domination lasted over four hundred years, leaving clear marks in the intriguing Old Town architecture and in the locally spoken dialect. Bound on seaward by great stone bastion walls and guarded to landward by a series of stone towers. Alghero's old churches and small squares are connections in a network of narrow paved and cobbled streets.
The town, sublime by day, becomes enchanting while strolling along the old walls at sunset. A bustling town, it offers more than just beautiful white sandy beaches and crystalline waters; tradition combined with modernity and a mild climate make it a fascinating place to visit all year round.
Alghero is surrounded by a magnificent wild explosion of nature sites; the landscapes surprisingly change from the fascinating Mediterranean bush to the high cliffs of Capo Caccia. You can rock climb there or visit the impressive Neptunes Cave, horseride along the desert sand beach of Porto Ferro, take a relaxing walk in the natural reserve of Arca di Noè, enjoy birdwatching or dive in the many hidden underwater caves.

"Could not be more perfect!"
We stayed here in August 2012 and had a brilliant holiday! We have three young children age 7, 5 and 3, and found Casa Maiorca to be the perfect base for exploring Alghero. Caterina's apartment is lovely, really clean and certainly big enough for the 5 of us. The location was brilliant, right on the middle of the old town, close to everything you would wish to see. There are lots of lovely restaurants nearby and the local bakery (about 10 steps from the apartment) was perfect for delicious breakfast supplies.
We had such a good time we are looking at booking it again for next year.
