The Sardinia region
The beautiful isalnd of Sardinia set in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea between Italy and north Africa. DH Lawrence visited in the early 1920s and found it 'lost between Europe and Africa and belonging to nowhere' he compared it to Jerusalem, 'strange and rather wonderful, not a bit like Italy'. Sardinia is for adventurers, for those who want to lose the crowds, who are intrigued, not frightened, by civilizations that initially may seem inexplicable.
Now within easy reach from the UK with a 2.30 mins flight. Sardinia is growing in popularity but still manages to retain its charm and exclusivity, as a holiday destination for all. Famous not only for its history but also for its natural beauty, its coastline is probably Europe's most spectacular. Its rugged mountains, pocked with caves, superb white sandy beaches; crystal clearaquamarine sea; huge limestone cliffs, walks through fantastic gorges, mountains and coastal paths. The Weather is generally good all the year round with highs of 39°C in August.
The island has been inhabited since prehistoric times evident in the shape of nuraghi, conical stone buildings.constructed as defensive structures as well as homes. There are more than 700 of them remaining, with the Nuraghe Su Nuraxi one of the largest and most impressive. Sardinia became targets for invasion and the Sard people were all but wiped out in 176BC, when 25,000 islanders were slaughtered. The Sards fled to “The Barbagia” mountainous inland region where they took shelter, a marvellous mix of forested hillsides and meadows dotted with isolated hamlets. This explains the numerous beautiful, sandy and accessible beaches, good natural ports, with very little in the way of coastal villages and towns.
The many invasions created an interesting influence in Sardinian food, wine, culture, architecture and archeology. Sardinian food is hearty rustic, wild boar, lamb and kid, suckling pig complemented with aubergines, artichokes, couscous and nougat and its excellent bread and salty percorino sardo cheese. Seafood is often excellent.
Cala Gonone is easily reached from Olbia in 1 hour and from Alghero and Cagliari in 2½. It is small idyllic, unspoilt coastal village and with it’s beautiful beaches and aquamarine sea is well worth the trip.
There are enough bars, hotels and apartments along the sea to have a good meal and evening out, but not enough to spoil the perfect setting. There are plenty of sports facilities tennis, windsurfing, waterskiing, canoeing, climbing, walking, horseriding, fishing or may be you just want to relax on 1 of it's many beaches.

"Excellent cosy place close to the sea"
The house has everything you could need for a great stay. Since we needed sleeping space for 7 people, the living room was converted into an extra bedroom through the use of the sofa bed, but the garden became our living room. With up to six people, you have a nice living room too. With two bathrooms, there were no queues for showers, and the washing machine in one of them was useful.
The walk down to the sea really is as short as they say and the beach you come to has plenty of space. The owner describes a number of outings, many of which we took up (though the walk south along the coast to a beach only accessible by boat or on foot we thought was longer and more strenuous than described). One outing that was not mentioned but that we enjoyed was to Orosei, a lovely town a little north.
The owner was very pleasant to deal with!

"Excellent accommodation - well looked after, clean and very comfortable"
This was our first visit to Sardinia and we really loved the island. The apartment was well positioned to access all the local facilities, as well as experiencing the beautiful scenery. There was plenty to do, even for 2 teenage boys. Whether it be lounging on the beach, swimming in the sea, walking or going out to try the local cuisine and drinking. Our top tip is to rent a car and get out and about to see more of the island, we found delightful beaches, really spoilt for choice. Will definitely be going back.

"A great apartment and perfect base for climbing in the Cala Gonone area"
I have stayed at Vista Poltrona 3 times, with friends, to climb on the fabulous Cala Gonone crags. It,one of my favourite places to stay.
The apartment is well appointed and always serviced to a high standard. Although its in a quiet area it's only a short way to the excellent local restaurants, shops and of course the beach.
I'd recommend Vista Poltrona without any hesitation
