The Sardinia region
Alghero is a beautiful medieval city on the sea.
There are a lot of beaches to choose for your sunny days, and a lot of restaurants, bars and discos for your evenings and nights; car is not necessary, you can arrive anywhere by foot, bycicle (that you can rent) and buses.
In the country near the city you can find also renowned vineyards to visit, horse-riding centres and prehistorical sites with guided visits.
For more informations, please make access to these internet addresses:
Every summer evening in the harbour you can hear sardinian local singers; there are horse carts carryng tourists in the centre of the city, and boats making sea trips to the "Grotte di Nettuno", beautiful sea caves under the cliff of "Capo Caccia".
Copied from www.blogsardinia.co.uk:
"I know you want me to tell you about Alghero…
Since I was a teenager Alghero was one of the top favourite places to go for my summer holidays, main reasons being its fabulous night life, good camping sites and lots of nice beaches nearby…(Le Bombarde was my favourite one).
But now that I am older and wiser…I like it even more. It is indeed a lovely town that has got so much to offer to people of all ages, either if you are looking for good nightlife or a much quieter and more comfortable holiday break or even a proper cultural holiday.
Alghero, also know as the little Barcelona, because of its past of Catalan colony that has left its mark in the architecture and local dialect, it is a beautiful fisherman town with a pretty historic centre framed by ramparts and defensive towers.
I love to wander through its cobbled narrow streets that suddenly open up to fantastic views into the blue see. In the evening you can relax in one of the many outdoors bars before going to a good restaurant to taste the local specialties such as the “Aragosta alla Catalana” (Catalan style Lobster).
During the day you can take a boat to visit the Nettuno sea grottos or, if you feel really adventurous, you can drive to Capo Caccia and climb 659 steps to reach them…. it is really worth doing (but I prefer the boat option!). What you can visit outside Alghero? Lots of options for you but you will need to hire a car.
Going North: visit the villages and beaches of Stintino (53 KM) and Castelsardo (65 KM).
Going South: do not miss the lovely town of Bosa (45 KM). For the archaeology lovers the of Nuraghe Palmavera (3 KM) and the The Anghelu Ruiu Necropolis (10 KM).
Not many people know it but New year’s Eve in Alghero is fun and normally (double-check) there are lots of outdoor concerts, shows, street artists and fireworks etc..
For the girls: the coast where Alghero is located is called “The Coral Riviera” and in Alghero you can buy fantastic coral jewellery !
Definitely worth visiting then, especially if you think that Alghero’s Airport is connected to Stansted with a daily flight and you can be there in slightly more than 2 hours.
If you go there send us some pictures!!
Cap d'Any a l'Alguer. New Year’s Eve in Alghero
For the past 10 years Alghero has organized the Cap d’Any festivities, one of the most famous and sparkling New Year’s Eves in the island. This event, which opens its doors to visitors at the beginning of December and ends during the magic night of December 31st, includes every year an interesting program of thematic shows animating the little streets and squares of the Catalan historic centre. It is an event that cannot be missed, especially for people wishing to spend a different New Year’s Eve, but also for those wishing to savour life in this beautiful medieval town during the Christmas holidays: concerts, theatre shows, street artists and stalls animating the days and especially the nights.
Core of the celebrations is certainly the great night of the 31st, when, following the rich dinners in the numerous little restaurants, with the typical Catalan lobster, people pour down the city streets among dances, concerts and pyrotechnical shows.
An emotional event, plunging the spectator into a kaleidoscope of lights, colours, among thousands of fantastic characters and dreamy treasures that only a town like Alghero can present.

"Everything we had hoped for, and more!"
Our time at Sunny Terrace was incredible. The historic Alghero location was perfect.....beautiful view of the water in one direction, with a view of the cobblestoned street with the shops, restaurants and historic buildings from the windows in the opposite direction. The home itself is warm and inviting. The kitchen is perfect for preparing wonderful meals with the fresh ingredients that can be purchased from the local markets. There are also fabulous restaurants just steps away, if you are not in the mood to create your own meal. We rented a car, which allowed us to visit the ancient towers, with very easy hiking to see spectacular cliffside ocean views. This vacation had it all....great food, comfortable accommodations, with very kind service from the property owner, as well as site seeing in both the village, as well as the surrounding area. Although not at all necessary for enjoying the local area within walking distance, we would highly recommend renting a car, so as not to miss the spectacular views in the surrounding area.
thank you very much dear guests, I'm so glad you enjoyed both my apt and the location, Alghero town as the surroundings area. I hope you will come again!

"Heaven in heaven part two"
As the title implies, we have just returned from Sunny Terrace for the second time! It feels even more homely than the first trip and I can only re-iterate that the position of this appartment is perfect for absorbing the unique atmosphere that is Alghero, with the harbour view on one side and Piazza Civica on the other!! We could not wish for more.
One morning whilst we were there the whole water system ceased to function, which was a major problem. Once this was reported to Maria, the owner, it was solved within two hours, which is pretty impressive as she lives in Cagliari!! It transpired that the whole of the "Old Town"s water suppy had been turned off, so no fault of "Sunny Terrace" and it happens that they have an emergency supply which kept us going until the mains were restored!! Our thanks to "Mrs Rita" (the Alghero lady who deals with "SunnyTerrace" on a daily basis) who came over very quickly to switch on the emergency supply!!.
Overall, another fantastic trip to Alghero and we can't wait to return again.
It has been an honour to have met such a courteous guest. Thank you very much

"Alghero Is a Graet Destination."
We arrived at the apartment late evening and met the lady there unfortunately she could not speak english and we had no italian so it was bit difficult to understand what was going on. First the negative points. The appartment is up some 50 stairs and therfore not suitable for people with any associated problems. lso if you like a longer lie in bed in the morning the sqaure is a bit noisy from 7am onwards with various street cleaning and related noise.Also was rather disapponted that as we were there 10 days that the bed linen or towels were not changed at least once. We were in fact left the keys and had no other contact from anyone after that.On the plus side the apartment is large and spacious with a reasonable size terrace. The location in the old town is also good for the bars restaurant etc. Alghero itself is a lovely place with bars and restaurants tucked away in the small narrow streets. We were always coming across somewhere new each time we were out and about.our favourite restaurant was Spaghettiria which is a small restauarant next to the larger Casa Blanca . Really well worth a visit. Would definately go back to Alghero . One thing I think would be useful would be a small fact sheet giving details of the location of super markets etc and also an emergency contact number should you require anything.

thank you very much for your kind review, dear Janet!
One of the bedroom is already provided with a double window, to avoid (or reduce!) noise; we are planning to provide even the second bedroom with a double window, next year.
