The Sardinia region

Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. It was first inhabited by man in 6,000 B.C and is known for its rich archaeoligical history. The first settlers were from the Italian mainland and the Iberian peninsula. The Island has a history of invasion with one of the first being the Phoenicians and defended itself against constant coastal raids from the Carthagians, Byzantines and Berbers. In 1354 the Aragons seized Alghero and transformed it into a Catalan city. Visitors will still see elements of the Iberian origins (the Aragons were in power for more than 400 years in Alghero) in the local dialect which is similar to Catalan and can be seen in the dual named street signs. Since the 18th century the Italian royal family used to spend their summer holiday in Alghero.

Sardinia is known as an island of the extremes. Rugged coast lines, turquoise and emerald coloured seas, large areas of pastures and dense mountain ranges in the centre of the Island.

The coastlines around Alghero are stunning with views of Capo Caccia from all angles. A short drive will take one to either Bosa further south or Stintino a bit further north, each of which are rich in local culture and history.

The temperatures in the summer on the coast can average 28 degrees celcius, but can get up to the mid 30's in August. It is possible to swim from May to November as the summer months can extend for about 6/7 months. The spring time is more mild and allow the visitors to appreciate the lush green countryside prior to the arrival of the dry heat of the summer.

Centro Storico, Alghero

Walking historic cobbled stone streets, under the arches and along the walled bastions that protected this city from invasion will captivate your imagination. Alghero is a vibrant, modern city that has a local population year round of approximately 30,000 people. Various cultural events and exhibits take place throughout the year. You can find ancient churches and fortresses as you wander throughout the city. Visitors can also gain an understanding of the local culture by visiting the "Mercato" or Market in the centre of town which is overflowing with local fruits and vegetables, fish that has arrived fresh from the sea that morning, local meats and cheeses from the countryside, and the famous breads (a must have is the pane guttiau...trust us!) and dolce.

Local beaches and restaurants are all within walking distance. Bicycles are also available. For those looking to explore the sites in the vicinity, we recommend renting a car to take you to the cliffs of Capo Caccia, the Grotte di Nettuno or to the beaches of Bombarde or Stintino.

“Great place in heart of old town”

Reviewed 8 Nov 2013

Very nice place in the heart of the old town. I couldn't think of a better location. A very short walk to the harbour and lots of good interesting places to eat and drink near by. The bed is on a nice mezzanine level (up a ladder) so the place feels great with very high ceilings.

Thank you very much for your review. We are very happy to hear that you liked the old town of Alghero and your stay with us in the main street of the old town and thus at the very heart of the local buzz. We are also happy to hear that you liked the comfort of our beds and the high ceiling in the apartment which together with the three large windows ensure plenty of natural light throughout the day. We look forward to welcoming you back to Alghero.

“The Almost Perfect Pad!”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2012

We thoroughly enjoyed our short break at Riviera 1. The apartment is small but almost perfectly formed: the mezzanine level has restricted head height so you do need to duck somewhat! However the owners were hospitable and helpful, and left us a thoughtful welcome pack too. Simply but stylishly furnished, well equipped, yet quiet at night, Riviera 1 could not have been more convenient for accessing the delights of the old town - and the beach. This is our third visit to Alghero, which is charming. I expect we'll be back!

Thank you for your review. We are very happy to hear that you had a great stay at Riviera 1. We are also pleased to hear that you appreciated our standards of service. We work hard to ensure that our guests thoroughly enjoy their holiday in Alghero and their stay with us. We would be happy to welcome you back in the near future.
