The Sardinia region
Sardinia is not a mainstream Mediterranean destination but a sophisticated island set in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, about 120 miles west of the Italian mainland and south of Corsica, with around 1,800km of coastline. It is small enough to be called an island but big enough to be a universe unto itself. It is renowned for deserted beaches, clear emerald coloured waters and fascinating rock formations. The people are warm and friendly and enjoying themselves is a way of life. Yet all this is a mere 2 hour flight from the UK!
Sardinia has a pleasant 6 month summer, hot and dry from May to October often tempered with a breeze. The winter months are generally mild, with a good degree of sunshine, particularly in March and April when many of the flowers are blossoming. It can be hot during the daytime and cooler in the evenings.
Sardinia offers some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean with a spectacular number of white sandy beaches and crystal-clear emerald water. The beaches in Sardinia are incredibly clean and whether you are in a secluded bay or close to a town, the beaches are of a high standard and the quality of water is generally extremely high. Watersports and diving facilities are widely available on most coasts during the summer; The nearest beaches to the apartment are Lu Bagnu and the acclaimed beaches of Valledoria, however the beautiful beaches of Isola Rossa and Badesi Mare are only a short drive away. Further afield, you can also explore the bays, beaches and coves of Arzachena, Costa Smerelda and Alghero.
Sardinia is an island that allows you to truly experience the very essence of Mediterranean life. The cuisine offers a rich repetoire of dishes, heavily influenced by the country's various neighbours including Corsica and Italy, accompanied by an impressive local wine list.The mixing of game and farm produce (traditional with inland towns) and fish and seafood (traditional with coastal towns) result in a combination of flavours and appearance that is unique to Sardinia.
If you are staying in Sardinia a little longer why not try a day trip to Corsica? Corsica and Sardinia are separated by just 11km and a regular ferry service transports cars and people between the two in less than an hour. Corsica is an island with a fascinating past and is most famous as Napoleon Bonaparte's place of birth. Corsica is a French island, there are both French and Italian influences plus a uniquely Corsican flavour. There are close to 200 beaches on the island - fine and coarse white and golden sand beaches, plus pebbly beaches made up of millions of sea-moulded stones of every colour; and because of the nature of the landscape many of Corsica's beaches are hidden coves accessible only on foot or by boat.
The apartment is located 5 minutes drive from the nearest town of Castelsardo which was founded in the X11 Century by the Genovese family of Doria and is situated on the summit of a rocky pronomitory in a strategic position dominating the harbour.The modern town of Castelsardo offers a wide choice of entertainment, piano bars, night clubs and a very high standard of outdoor restaurants with breathtaking views.
La Roccia dell'Elefante – a rock similar to an elephant with it's trunk turned toward the road. This formation is one of the most spectacular manifestations of limestone erosion, a substance often utilised by prehistoric civilisation. Roccia dell'Elefante is a national landmark and is located only 2 minutes from Residence San Giovanni.

"Lovely apartment with stunning views"
We had a wonderful stay at this lovely and well equipped apartment. We just loved eating every meal on the balcony and enjoying the beautiful panoramic views of the landscape and coastline. It's a great base for exploring the stunning coastline and beaches and just a few minutes into Castelsardo along the beautiful coast road. And the kids just loved seeing the Elephant Rock every time we went down the road! Fantastic pool which is great for children in a stunning setting. Most tricky thing we had to deal with during our stay was deciding whether to go to the pool or the beach each day.... Would thoroughly recommend this accommodation.
Thank you - so glad you had a good time and appreciated the view.
