The Sardinia region
Alghero is steeped in history dating back to the early Stone Age. Alghero descends from the Catalan period and still hold its traditions in the language that is spoken by the locals & the food. The local dish is Paella in Alghero.
Alghero has two of the largest vineyards in Italy producing two of the most well known wines in Italy. Sella Mosca & Santa Maria Palma. Sella Mosca has a daily tour of the wine cellars & a small tasting afterwards, defiantly a tour to take for all those wine buffs........& it is free.
Additionally the car rally "coral tour" starts & finished from Alghero, normally with a great attendance.
You can hire bikes & scooters, golf carts from the port.
There are a lot of "Agro tourism" (restaurants) available in the local area that will allow you taste traditional foods that have been reared or grown on the land.
Also dotted in the smallest of places, are all the beautiful old churches, included is the beautifully coloured dome of San Michele which can be seen from most places of the Old town. Around most corners you will find piazzas with bars & small cafe to enjoy a small break as you wonder around the winding streets shops.
The large church that dominates the bastions is well worth a visit. If you don't fancy seeing the sights all on foot there is a "Catalan Train" that can take through as tour to save your feet. This leaves from the port.
The port holds over 2000 boats now, private & well as charters. We have Cruise liners that dock also. The boat trips from the port are Neptune’s Caves, See dolphins, snorkelling & diving, the coastlines of Alghero have some of the best diving in the world!
The evenings you can dine in a full variation of restaurants, go dancing in some clubs, walk the passagiata with an ice cream, go Karting, bowling, set up camp in bar for the night.... the choice is yours.

There are some small rocks as a water break to head for, for the better swimmers, you can hire pedalos, canoes, kayaks, have floats & banana chairs to sit in, some section have children's toys, slide, swings & houses to play in included in the beach price, or simply while away days on the sun loungers under an umbrella trying to decide which ice cream to have later. Pineta area is a short walk or 5 min drive -this is an area that is covered by pine trees & this has sand dunes for sitting in & playing on.
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)
