The Sardinia region
Alghero and the surrounding area
Alghero, in the north-west of Sardinia, is one of the island's most seductive towns. It was ruled by the Spanish between the 14th and 17th centuries and this influence is seen in the old quarter, called Barcelonetta, or Little Barcelona. The cobbled streets here still have a distinctive Catalan character and, to this day, the locals speak a Catalan dialect. The new town spreads out on the other side of the 16th-century walls, and offers easy access to a many white, sandy beaches.
Just north of Alghero's marina is the Lido, also known as San Giovanni Beach. It's a 1.5-kilometre ribbon of sand and a great spot for sun-worshippers. For something even more spectacular, just 5 minutes away by car is Maria Pia Beach, a long stretch of ice-white sand fringed by fragrant pine forests. The Mediterranean is warm, crystalline, and child-friendly. Or head to nearby La Bombarde Beach, which has a lively line-up of beach bars with DJs spinning the decks.
There are several good restaurants within a few minutes walk of the apartment for those of you who don't fancy cooking in the evenings, and a selections of good supermarkets offering lovely fresh Italian produce and groceries, for the budding chefs amongst you.
Alghero's 'old town', full of cobbled streets, sunny piazzas and waterfront walks is just a 20 minute walk away.
Regular buses also run from Lido to the old town for those less energetic.
The old town has an abundance of shops, cafes, restaurants and tourist attractions. The daily 'passeggiatta' - daily evening stroll - where all the locals dress up and go fo r the evening constitutional is a 'must'. This all adds to the evening vibe and gets you in the mood for the rest of the night.
There is a 9 hole Pitch and Putt Golf Course approx. 5 Kms away offering an inexpensive round of Golf.
Kite Surfing is an activity that is on offer at Lido and San Giovanni beaches (October being the best month for this)

"I will be back"
La casa e' molto bella, dispone di tutto e non sembra affatto una casa vacanze, il quale ti fa sentire uno di Alghero e non un turista, un'ampia terazza che rende tutto piu' piacevole, … More

"Lovely large and clean apartment perfect for a family"
We arrived to find a lovely large and very clean apartment with a huge balcony to sit out on in the sun. The main bedroom was a great size for me and hubby and the two kids stayed in the second bedroom which left a sofa bed free. Everything was available for self catering but we did not cook as so many restaurants were close by. The shower which is always important was lovely and warm and powerful.
We were literally a five minute walk from the local beach which was somewhat busy but if we wondered in the opposite direction we found much quieter beaches within a ten minute walk.
The walk into the old town at a pleasant stroll took around 30mins but it was a lovely walk along the beech that we took most evenings with lots going on and the old town is just gorgeous.
A lovely apartment situated in an ideal position that we would highly recommend and hope to use again.
