The Sardinia region
Sardinia has long been Italians favourite holiday destination... now with many cheaper connections from UK many British holidaymakers are discovering why the Italians love it so much. Sardinia has the cleanest sea in the Mediterranean, with crystal clear water up to 40 metres deep in places. With miles of pristine silky sandy beaches, and one of the most beautiful coastline in the Mediterranean... Sardinia is completely unspoilt. Its large size and the low numbers of coastal hotels means it is not overwhelmed with tourists so retains its local character.
The remains of past civilisations dot the landscape from Nouraghic towers to Roman ruins and the later Spanish towers which rise every few kilometres along the coast. Combine the natural and cultural beauty with the friendly laid back Sardinian people, wonderful Sardinian dishes such as roast suckling pig, maloreddus the local pasta, famous pecorino cheese, sweets such as padulas and torrone and wonderful sfuso (local wines) from €1 a litre... try the cannonau (red) and vermentino (white). It all makes Sardinia a relaxing holiday destination which is hard to beat..
But Sardinia is more than beaches and unspoilt mountain scenery. Cagliari is a sophisticated city with wonderful Baroque and Medieval architecture, pavement cafes, department stores, art exhibitions, museums, a Roman amphitheatre and a great place to do a walking tour or catch the open-top bus or tourist train. Ohh... and don't miss the flamingoes on the drive home!
The pretty town of Pula has a market every Tuesday and concerts most evenings through the summer from Jazz to Pop and the odd string quartet or piano recital. It also has lovely shops and street markets during the summer months.
On the outskirts of the town is the Roman city of Nora which is situated on a beautiful headland with a gorgeous beach to one side where you can snorkel over the remains of parts of the town now underwater. The villa is 5 mins from aquaparc and 7 minutes from Is Molas International golf course. There are a number of outstanding beaches within a 30 minute drive for you to explore.
Sardinia has a rich cultural heritage and there are many festivals starting with St Efisio in May and including Ferragosta in August where flower-laden carts pulled by oxen arrive on Nora beach carrying the Virgin Mary. There is a mass followed by a procession of fishing boats and a massive firework display. Museums and events displaying Sardinian culture including music and dance are available throughout the summer.

"Do it, you wont regret it!"
We rented the Vico del Porto for 2 people but theres ample space for a couple of families. It had everything needed for a comfortable stay and the inventory exceeded our expectation for a rented villa. The location is great and we visited every beach South from the villa over the first four days by car and followed it up by renting a RIB down at the local port from Flamar Vacance and went down the coast to Chia then spent the day cruising back stopping at all the beaches & coves. Rental €100 full day / €80 half day and budget €60 for fuel - its well worth it. Archaelogical site at Nora is well worth a look along with an evening canoe around the nature reserve next door and a walk around their Sea Turtle sanctuary. Theyve also got a great restraunt there but need to book - 5 mins from the villa. Sandra the house keeper is great and we embarked on her Sardinian feast which was amazing. Villa is sited at the end of a road that has 3 other houses so its secluded and quiet. Perfect is you just want to stay in the garden and use the pool all day or venture out and explore. Very friendly owners who made the whole experience easy to book and obtain information on the surrounding area.

That's how we'd describe our holiday at Villa Vico del Porto in Pula! We spent a week there at the end of May to mark a very special anniversary - the day the 6 of us met 20 years ago. 3 couples meeting up for a celebratory yet relaxing time away from home is quite something – we were expecting a lot, and we weren’t disappointed!! The villa was lovely and the service was great – our memorable breakfasts outside in the loggiato facing the pool were just what was needed to start each day. We would spend our days luxuriously and lazily enjoying the pool. You didn’t need to leave the villa at all really, but we were adventurous and on several occasions we’d stroll off to the nearby Marina for pre-dinner drinks – sipping wine and enjoying the gorgeous views there; we’d also go off and explore the surroundings even as far as Cagliari to visit the famous Castello district, which was a great adventure and, after soaking up the stunning rooftop views across the city, we found a great café that served the most fantastic aperitivi; and then of course we’d go sunbathing at the nearby beaches at Perd’e Sali and Nora or visit the pretty town of Pula to shop for souvenirs. The service at the villa was great …. and whenever we had a request it was seen to promptly and professionally. We felt looked after yet independent. The 6 of us would enjoy cooking meals together in the kitchen but the highlight was a superb, special celebratory meal that was organized by the owners for us at the villa to mark our anniversary ! It was unforgettable – check out the delicious menu !! : “porcini mushrooms in oil, carciofi in oil, prosciuto and carasau, cheeses and salami, tempura vegetables, small spiced meat pies, homemade ravioli stuffed with pecorino in tomato sauce, trofie pasta with a cinghale sauce, maialetto and lamb marinaded in vernaccia, followed by homemade sebadas...complete with wine and mirto.” We couldn’t have had a lovelier week!! Highly recommended for anyone celebrating like us ! but ideal for a relaxing, trouble-free, fun holiday anytime.

"Great Villa in a great location"
Really nice villa with pool. Can't fault it really. Great location with a couple of pizzeria's/bars in walking distance and Pula a short drive offering a wide variety of restaurants plus lots going on in the evenings. had a great meal in the Villa recommended by the owner. This was really good - just don't eat the day before it's was an absolute feast cooked by a very nice lady and fantastic value for money. Would absolutely recommend it. Because of the location this can be as relaxed or active as you want the holiday to be.with a variety of beaches nearby.

"Fabulous Italian villa in great location"
This is a well-equipped villa in a very scenic location close to the the bustling little town of Pula. It's in easy driving distance of local beaches (Chia is particularly beautiful), some interesting historical sites and delightful old Sardinian villages. The villa is comfortable and has an individual style and charm which made us feel much more at home. We found it had pretty much everything we needed including clean bedding and towels and a well-equipped kitchen. The outdoor areas are very comfortable - some evenings it was hard to decide whether to stay in the pool or relax on a lounger with a glass of local vino. Highly recommended.

"Beautiful villa in beautiful location - loved it!"
Exceptionally comfortable, with a beautiful garden and pool, this was a wonderful villa to stay in. Walkable to the local beach and an easy drive to the many other stunning beaches in the south of the island. Friendly and good-value local restaurant a few steps away.....our only regret was that we would have liked to stay longer!

What a great place to relax with family and friends. Great pool. The villa was well appointed and had everything you required. Great pool. Superb views with a fab kitchen. Within a nice stroll from the marina and beach it really was perfect. Great pool. I just wished we'd booked for two weeks. Maybe next year? Regards, Simon, Gill and family with the Brister family
It's always lovely to hear that people enjoy the villa and area as much as we do. We would love to see you again for two weeks, next year or in the future. Many thanks for taking the time to offer your views to other prospective holiday makers.

Stayed here in Aug and loved it, the Villa is well appointed and has everything you'll need (Great fridge), the pool is large (very popular with our kids) and the surrounding views are amazing, the beach and small port are within walking distance although we took the car as had so much stuff (parking near beach no problem), Pula is a 5 min drive away and was a great place to eat and explore further afield are the larger more poular beaches which are beautiful but busy in Aug. I'd recommend Villa Vico del Porto to all.
