The Sardinia region
Sardinia is a Region which surprises. It offers not oly sea-holidays but also hiking on the mountains and riding on the beaches. There's a deep tradition which starts in the nuragic period (prehistoric), linked to the ship, the horse-riding and the cheese production.
The history is complicated: every one looked to conquer Sardinia, so today we have the marks of it. Marks of Romans, Phoenicians, Bizantines, Marine Republic (Genova, Venezia, Pisa), Piemonte Kingdom and especially Spain Kingdom (Aragona) which ruled Sardinia for 4 centuries!
The town of Alghero, only 1,5 km away, has got an historic centre where one can breath the old Catalan soul, admire the ancient , gothic Cathedral; be swept away by the energy of the town during the summery months and lose one's way in the handicraft shops such as the beautiful coral shops. Restaurants, pizzerias, cafés are everywhere, along the sea on the old Bastion, within the town in the old alleys and in the modern part of town.
Besides this “movida”(night life), the surrounding area to the north of Alghero offers beautiful sandy beaches, gorgeous limestone cliffs facing west, interesting footpaths within the Natural Park of Porto Conte where, if you are lucky, you can see some of the wild animals which live there. The southern coast is one of the last wildest place left in Sardinia: the panoramic Alghero-Bosa road is 40 kms in length, it leads you through an unspoilt landscape of coves with green gradations of sea, of rough high hills where the Griffon vulture still survives. At the end it surprises you with unexpected beaches where the fresh water is mixed with the salt water.

"Wonderful house, location and hosts"

"Picturesque location with wonderful views. A great place to stay!"
Set approximately 1km outside of Alghero town centre in a beautiful location with a beautiful ocean view overlooking Cave Ciaccia, this villa is great whether you are a small or large group, family or friends, looking for a short or long break.
Erica and family were highly welcoming, providing great information about the surrounding area, restaurants to go to and places to visit.
All in all, a great place to stay. I would highly recommend it and would definitely come again!

"Great place to stay with friends and family with a splendid view"
Close to Alghero you find a peaceful place with a great view in a wonderful garden full of olive trees. With its two lovingly furnished apartments the house is perfect for two groups/families, who like to have meals together on the porch. The owner is very friendly and helpful and has a lot of great tips where to go for shopping or the best beaches in a folder.The children loved to play in the garden.

"A place in our hearts"
Vi kan verkligen rekommendera detta boende!
De förföriska bilderna ljög inte. Utsikten mot staden och havet var fantastisk.
Värdfolket var otroligt vänliga och omtänksamma, samt talade hyfsat bra engelska.
Det är den övre våningen som har den fantastiska utsikten.
Vi var två pers och hade huset för oss själva. Undervåningen var ej uthyrd under vår vecka.
Hyrbil är ett måste. Det var ganska lätt att hitta dit förutsatt att man i förväg kollat noga på Google maps / Google Earth.
Tyst och stilla läge. Ingen trafik. Nära till staden ca 5 min. Egen vacker olivlund att titta på.
Perfekt bas för utflykter till olika mål på norra Sardinien.
Vi flög Norwegian till Olbia. Ca 2 tim med bil till Alghero. Vill man så kan man även ta Ryan till Alghero och då blir nog körtiden bara ca 30 min.
Återigen, värdfolkets otroligt trevliga bemötande (utan att vara påträngande)gjorde vistelsen till något extra.
