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.
The Alghero area
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)

From the moment we arrived at Il Nido we were delighted and knew we had made the right decision after looking at hundreds of others on the internet.
We were greeted at the door by two lovely English locals, Louise and David, who manage the property, who gave us some great information about the town, including were to eat, getting the bus, were to buy good wine and the best beaches. They also organised a taxi for us to head back to the airport a few days later.
The apartment was spotless, spacious and nicely decorated. Luckily for us we had amazing weather, but if you're not so lucky and get stuck in the apartment, there are hundreds of DVDs and boardgames to keep you entertained. There is also a lovely little balcony too.
Il Nido is also is well equipped with more useful things like plenty of kitchen tools, dishwasher and washing machine. There are also a couple of supermarkets near by which we found handy when walking back from town after a day at the beach to stock up on treats before walking back into town (about a 15min walk) for dinner and drinks.
When booking Il Nido, the owner, Sonia, responded to all emails really quickly and confirmed all details (like transfer of payments) as soon as she could which was really reassuring.
We will certainly be visiting again in the future
Thank you very much for a wonderful review. I am very happy you had a great experience from booking your holiday with me, to being greeted by David and Louise (i adore them!) to have enjoyed the apartment, the beaches and Alghero. i believe a great holiday is created when all aspects go smoothly so to build good memories of a place. if you leave wanting to return you know you spent your money well!

Apartment was clean, quiet and comfortable in a good location about 15 minutes walk from the old town. We enjoyed our stay there and would happily return. The apartment was well equipped and everything worked fine. A couple of minor points: the washing m/c and oven were showing their age - some of the labels had worn off. The property is correctly advertised as having internet access, however it should state that this is in the form of a dongle, not wifi - no use unless you take a laptop!
Thank you very much for yet another excellent review, i am pleased my guests have for another year enjoyed my much loved apartment, Alghero and Sardinia.
I am fully aware the washing machine and the dishwasher need to be replaced, last season however i have invested in a new matress and a new bed for the double bedroom as i thought offering good quality sleep is more important than eletrical items, i am hoping this year to make more improvements and replace old appliances.
Again many thanks for your feedback and constructive critisism. Sonia D'Avino owner of Il Nido

Was met at Alghero airport arrivals by a taxi driver kindly arranged by the Il Nido team.
We were then shown around the apartment by David and Louise who were very friendly and knowledgeable about Alghero and surroundings. The apartment had everything we needed for a relaxing holiday and was extremely clean.
As a family of four with 2 children (5 and 8) it was great to have space. We went to the local market and bought fresh fish fruit and veg for a meal as well as the supermarket for basics.
Il nido is also in a good location for local facilities such as a true locals bar (Fernanda caffe) and great local food. The Carlos V hotel is good for a pool day. We also took the open top bus from the harbour to the fantastic Mugoni beach.
Wonderful holiday thank you - we hope to return.
Ps. many thanks to Sonia for sorting the booking out for us and also excellent communication.
