The Sardinia region
The Mediterranean's second largest island is 9.300 square miles of surprises, just 120 miles west of the Italian mainland. Named "Sandalyon" after its footprint-like shape, you are never too far from the sea in Sardinia, and it has left its mark on the people and the landscape.
Almost 2000 kms of coastline is contoured by rugged cliffs, tiny coves, and picturesque harbours.
Inland the lush, wild landscape of untouched beauty and sculped red granite rocks harbours hundreds of archaeological sites which bring the past instantly into life.
Then there is the food - fine wines, cheese and olive oil, which result in a very rich and varied cuisine.
Located in the northwest of Sardinia, Alghero, in recent years, has become a major holiday destination, yet it still retains its charming small town feel, authentic Sardinian hospitality, and a distinctive Catalan character; which derives from the influence of Pedro IV of Aragon who seized control of the city in the mid-fourteen century during an intense period of colonization from Spain. Yet, today Alghero is renowned for being one of the most Italian holiday towns in Sardinia.
The pedestranised old town centre (10 walking minutes from Il Nido), on the sea front consists of a labyrinthic network of cobbled narrow lanes, brimful of artisan shops, fashionable boutiques, bustling open air cafes and atmospheric restaurants, perfect for ‘al fresco’ wining & dining, and ideal for seafood lovers.
Due to its balanced Mediterranean climate (Feb 14c, May 22c, Aug 27c, Nov 17c), Alghero is an ideal year round holiday destination. Visitors to this charming town can enjoy sunbathing and swimming alongside Lungomare Valencia or over the sandy beach of the Lido. The other enjoyable hobby is to admire the truly idyllic sunsets which enhance the surrounding scenic coastline. In addition Alghero is an ideal base for day trips in the immediate vicinity to place such as; the Neptune’s Grotto, Stintino, Bosa, Argentiera, the Anghelu Ruju necropolis and Nuraghe di Palmavera (More local information provided on our guest resort book available in the apartment)
