Sardinia is a beautiful island with many undiscovered regions. It is surrounded by incredible beaches which vary from one coast to another. Inland (about 2 hours away from Bosa) there is an impressive mountain range, remote villages and beautiful places to explore. The west coast is the less touristy destination in Sardinia, traditional and unspoilt. A good spot for long holidays and short and as a base to explore other parts of the island.
The house is in the historic centre of Bosa, on a narrow cobbled street in the medieval quarter. Step onto the terrace and the view gives you an immediate taste of what a holiday in the unspoilt Sardinian town of Bosa is all about: beauty, variety, and above all a sense of peace. The town unfolds below you, the terracotta coloured roofs spreading round the central dome of the XIIth century Cattedrale dell'Immacolata. Look to the east and your eye will follow the curves of the River Temo, upon whose banks the town, a former capital of Sardinia, is built. Roman bridges span the Temo, where fishermen moor and the old tanneries stand. Facing you across the valley are hills - green in winter, golden in summer. To the west is the blue Mediterranean. The turreted Castello Malaspina which crowns the hill above the town is witness to the long history of Sardinia, involving invasions by the Phoenicians, Carthaginians and later the Aragonese and Catalans. You can visit the castello and see beautiful XV century frescos, and a stunning view of the town. There are wonderful beaches up and down the coast to explore. The swimming is blissful, the water is very clear and clean. There is plenty of snorkelling to be done, as well as windsurfing on the long, sandy beach at Bosa Marina, 1 mile away. Anybody wanting some night life need only go down to Bosa Marina where it is full of bars and nightclubs, they are buzzing in summer, close enough for having fun but far enough to keep the noise away from the historic centre. There are bars, shops, plenty of restaurants and wonderful ice-cream shops in town. You can wander down in the evening light to the Corso Vittorio Emmanuele, or wander along the river front. Market day is Tuesday. Other activities: walking, riding, cycling, diving, rowing, bird watching, windsurfing.
