Eating Out:

The owners would particularly recommend the "Il Sagittario" restaurant (Via Al Mare 10, Trinita' D'Agultu) as a good value and good quality place to eat. Anthony Carella in the Sunday Times called it "...the kind of unpretentious Italian restaurant one dreams of finding."

Another recommendation is Trattoria da Paolino (Via 24 Maggio 6, Trinita' D'Agultu) with an amazing 161 four star and five star reviews on Trip Advisor (out of 173 reviews) but make sure the Porchetta is on the menu

The Sardinia region

Calarossa Residence is the start of the Costa Paradiso and there are several charming bays nearby. Santa Teresa to the North is a bustling port and the summer 'passeggiata', where everyone dresses up and goes for a stroll is an enjoyable people watching experience. Ferries cross from Santa Teresa to Corsica, whose white cliffs are visible across the straits. Another fascinating trip is to Capo Testa the western cape of the island where the sea and winds give the rock formations a savage beauty.

Costa Paradiso

The Calarossa Residence and private beach lies in an unspoilt natural environment on the island's NW coast, just a few km from the charming port town of Isola Rossa. The gardens of Calarossa won the Homes Overseas Gold Award for Best Landscape Design and with it's small squares and stone archways it blends perfectly with the natural surroundings. Book with confidence. Over 200 guests in 5 years. Beach 350m walk and facilities include 3 pools inc Kids pool as well as tennis courts and entertainment in High Season.

"Lovely beaches and apartment"

We stayed in Cala Rossa at the beginning of July, which was lovely though exceptionally hot (to be expected though!). The owners of the apartment were really helpful in the information they sent us which included directions from the airport which got us there fine.

The apartment is a studio flat with a big balcony, and as it has already been mentioned, the bed is a sofa bed, however we were aware of this and thought the apartment was lovely, though I imagine it might be a little cramped with more than two people! When we arrived it was lovely and clean and the kitchen was well stocked with the essentials. The air con was a life saver at times!

The area its self is lovely, though I would say that the Cala Rossa Residence is most definitely a family resort, so great for kids as they seemed to be trying to incorporate some English songs and things so everyone could join in (though we watched from afar from the balcony!) The private beach is incredible and the residence has installed a jetty out into the water so you can go for a swim, as the shoreline is a little rocky.
Isola Rossa was also lovely, quite small but compared to the bustling of Alghero this made a nice change. We checked out a lot of the little rocky coves around the island also wish I highly recommend with a snorkel and goggles!

You definitely need a car if you're staying in Cala Rossa however, as the only amenities on site are a small shop, a bar and a restaurant, with not a lot else within walking distance. I think as long as you're aware of this so you're not in for a surprise when you get there, you will really enjoy the apartment. For any keen cyclists about - highly recommend renting bikes or something, we hopefully going back to Sardinia in spring with the bikes because the roads and views were amazing.

Enjoy!

The residence is very family friendly. They employ a team of staff called "animators" who are on hand during high season to organize activities for the children and ensure they are provided with a wealth of activities through the day. We have found that a firm "No thank you" will keep them at bay if you do not wish to get involved. Pleased to hear from this reviewer that the jetty has been re-built as it was destroyed in a winter storm a couple of years ago

"Very pleasant stay!"

We stayed in the studio apartment and very much enjoyed our stay. The apartment was very clean with a well equipped kitchen and an ample sized bathroom, the only negative I could say was the bed as it was a pull out sofa bed! The resort itself was ok, although they seemed to have a wake up call by the pool at 9.30 consisting of Italian music and dancing! The beach was only a 5 minute walk along a sand path or la marinedda beach was a 15 minute walk away which was very nice! Overall for the price we can have little complaints about this accommodation and would recommend to anyone.

The residence is marketed by Pierre & Vacance as being very family friendly. They employ a team of staff called "animators" who are on hand during high season to organize activities for the children and ensure they are provided with a wealth of activities through the day. We have found that a firm "No thank you" will keep them at bay if you do not wish to get involved. For the music, this is pretty standard for any Italian beach resort throughout July and August. If you are looking for a quiet time to go, try April/May or Sept/Oct

"an excellent relaxing holiday"

A very nice studio apartment on a purpose built holiday complex with excellent facilities. A private beach which is perfect for an evening stroll to watch the sunset. A car is essential when staying on this complex as the only access to the main highway is via a 4 kilometer unmade road. There are numerous villages and beaches which are only a short drive from the complex.

We would strongly recommend a car for almost any location in Sardinia, unless you plan simply a city break in Alghero or Cagliari

"Lovely beaches"

We stayed for 12 days at the Calarossa Residence out of season around Mid-May. The weather was fantastic (between 25-30 degrees) except for two days when it was windy/raining. We stayed in a studio flat which was nice with an outside balcony although you need to be careful if you have young children but it was great for enjoying a glass of wine in the late afternoon/evening. Be warned that the main facilities are not open until June including the swimming pool but we prefer it less crowded so it was fine for us. It would have been nice if the playground had been kept fairly accessible as it was a bit too overgrown to use. There is a lovely looking (but stony) beach less than 5 min from the development and a fantastic sandy beech in the next bay about 20min walk from the development. The location is great for driving around the North of the island and we would especially recommend going to Corsica for the day which was our best excursion. All in all, we enjoyed it

We are fortunate enough to have our own Calarossa beach within a few minutes walk. This is a sandy beach great for sunbathing and swimming, though it does go to pebbles and rocks under the water so plastic swimming shoes would be a great idea. For a completely sandy beach Marrinedda is 5 minutes walk across the dunes - strangely it takes longer to drive to than walk.
The "Miami Beach" of the area is at Badesi, a long sandy beach of some 4km which is 20 minutes drive to the south.

"Lovely place, but remote and quiet due to time of year"

We went out of season in late March and because of this we didn't have access to many local restaurants and meant getting food was quite inconvinient. However the apartment was very nice with good facilities and very clean. The area has beautiful beaches and this apartment is in a good location to drive to many of them and there is also a small beach located very close to the complex. The area is very peaceful and remote and perfect for a quiet, relaxing holiday. It was great value for money but renting a car is essential!

We have now opted to open for bookings on 15th April when most restaurants and shops are open for the beginning of the holiday season. At the same time we will still offer great value for low season bookings at 18 GBP per night for our studio apartment (holiday lettings reference 85978) and 36 GBP for our 2 bedroom apartment (holiday lettings reference 50025). Minimum 5 night stay

"lovely part of Sardinia - beautiful sunsets"

We rented the studio apartment for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay. The studio was very clean and pleasant to be in and although small in size it was perfectly adequate for a short stay with all the necessary equipment in the kitchen area and a reasonable size bathroom. The view from the little balcony was beautiful and the breeze was a welcome relief to the summer heat.
The resort was well maintained and very tidy. There were two fantastic pools, various other activities and there was entertainment on through-out the day and most evenings provided by an animation team. This was very popular and fun for those who wanted to be involved, however my only criticism was that the noise and music was audible around the resort and in the studio apartment so any quiet time could only be taken during siesta.
A car is necessary but the resort is well placed to discover hidden coves as well as popular beaches along the Costa Paradiso – all beautiful. Trips to towns like Santa Teresa di Gallura and Castelsardo are also possible and make for a nice day out.
The owners of the property were very helpful and prompt with any questions or queries we had. We had an enjoyable stay.

"sparkling holiday in idyllic sardinian setting"

The Calla Rossa complex is lovely - 3 beautiful pools, of varying sizes, all very safe for children. The whole site has really nice facilities: a charming restaurant, a choice of cafes and bars, and tennis and football facilities. The main joy was the people; it is very European, in a friendly way for families during the day, but also quite sophisticated way at night. The Calla Rossa team of young people made everyone feel involved if they wanted, in the pool and kids activites, but were also respectful of people's space.
Nearby there were local beaches, one you could walk to through the dunes, and others a short car journey away. There is a local aqua park, which was fun for the day for children of any age. Food is expensive; the island isn't cheap, but it is beautiful, and overall we had a really relaxing, family friendly holiday. You can't guarantee Sun, but in the Summer, we had 7 lovely days in a row.
The studio accomodation was compact, but somehow we got our family of 4 in. The facilities were very clean, and well equiped. It was really safe, and we had a great view over the Florence like tiled roofs and out to the sea in the background.
The communication with the owner was excellent; he offered us travel advice, and when we had a problem with the gas cooker, one short call to Britain fixed it; he was always on hand, and always friendly.
Overall, if you want the sun, great pools, things to occupy your children, or a relaxing space for yourself, with an air of Italian sophistication thrown in, then this is a great place.
To confirm this, we are now booking again for this Summer, combining with a brief city stay in Rome.

There is a wide choice of restaurants within a 20 minute drive and also the option to self cater. Maybe also worth remembering, for those on a budget, pizzerias or trattorias will be better value than the more expensive "ristorante." We like the Sagittario in Trinita D'Agultu and would highly recommend the Gorgonzola and onion pizza!

"Simple clean, safe accomodation, fab resort, stunning location"

The resort is great..the apartment was the perfect base from which to explore the Nothern part of Sardinia - great beach book in the apartment helped us discover some beaches that rivaled the ones I have been on in Barbados.
The owner was friendly and helpful.

The resort people were fantastic...we found the Sardinian people wonderful and look forward to returning to this gem of a place and our 9 year old and 11 year old loved SARDINIA the friendliness of the people, the ice-cream and the amazing pool!!

Thanks very very much - The Paxton Family
PS just one thing a map of local area in the apartment marked up with local supermarkets would be useful.

We would suggest SISA in Badesi for food shopping. Spotlessly clean and used to tourists
