At only 50 metres from the Mediterranean sea in the historic old town of Alghero, Sardinia, this small apartment has recently been totally modernised and contains a double bedroom, kitchen, living room and bathroom.

Ideal for a young couple looking for some moments of relax in the charming Alghero old city.

The Apartment is situated in the centre of Alghero, being into the fascinating historic centre of the city, the picturesque harbour and the renowned beaches of 'La Riviera del Corallo', the coral coast.

The Lido beach is easily accessible by bus, by bike or by a pleasant walk. Nearby there are all of the shops and services that you could wish for: restaurants, chemist's, pizzerias, bars, banks and clothes shops.

The apartment is also just a few kilometers from the natural beauties of the surrounding area, such as:

- the protected marine area of Capo Caccia

- Isola Piana: a big promontory from which you can enjoy a breathtaking landscape and visit the nature reserve of Prigionette.

- Famous beaches such as Bombarde, Lazzaretto and Mugoni with white sands and crystal clear sea.

- Archaeological sites, including the nuragic complex of Palmavera with its two central towers around which is a village of about 200 rooms, the necropolis of Anghelu Ruju with 36 tombs and the Roman villa of Sant'Imbenia.

The Sardinia region

Located closer to Africa than Italy, Sardinia's turquoise sea and white sandy beaches rival the tropics. Sant'Antioco & San Pietro, off the coast of Southwestern Sardinia, are charming islands as yet unspoiled by too much tourist development. The seaside resort of Santa Teresa di Gallura offers all the attractions of the coast without the sometimes-soulless glitz of the Costa Smeralda. Further east, Palau & Arcipelago di la Maddalena are pretty laidback, too: the archipelago itself comprises a national park with loads of island-hopping opportunities.

Away from the coast, the scenery can be similarly stunning with a pastoral quilt of forested mountain peaks, valleys of citrus groves and pastures of happily grazing cattle and sheep. In contrast, the urban scene can be disappointing. Some towns are, frankly, dull and depressing with breeze-block buildings and graffiti. Others, like medieval Bosa in the west, are impossibly picturesque with their pink-and-golden buildings flanking the river. Alghero, in Northern Sardinia, has a fascinating Catalan history (the language is still spoken here) and a delightful old centre; the lively town of Iglesias also retains an appealing Spanish legacy. Calgliari is historic and cosmopolitan at the same time, while the equally historic Oristano is quietly elegant.

Traditional culture thrives most vigorously in the heartland where the elderly women are still draped in black; here tourists are rare – stared at – but ultimately welcomed.

Across the landscape are scattered 7000 nuraghi, strange conical stone fortresses seemingly built by a Sardinian Fred Flintstone. Curious temples, tombs, mysterious menhirs and remains of entire Bronze Age villages complete the prehistoric cartoon.

Sardinia distinguishes itself in the kitchen with hearty pastas and a love for pungent local cheeses, like pecorino and smoked ricotta. Sardinians also produce notable wines and a head-splitting firewater, filu e ferru.

Alghero

Alghero's medieval centre with its cobbled lanes, bustling squares and honey-coloured walls preserves more than a whiff of the centuries of Catalan presence here. This legacy dates back to 1323 when the conquerors of the Crown of Aragón tried to 'ethnically cleanse' several Sardinian cities by replacing the local populace with Catalan colonists.

These attempts largely failed except here, where Catalan is still spoken and street signs and menus are often in both languages. Alghero makes an agreeable base for exploring the northwest but can get crowded in summer and at weekends with a steady stream of tourists arriving on cut-price flights from the UK and Germany.

"Just what it says on the tin"

Quaint and really nice little apartment. Great location, in the old part of Alghero, little bit of a walk to the beach but the quality of walk was extraordinary. Comfort was pretty basic but we rented… More
