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.
