Sardinia is a large island with a wonderful climate and plenty to see and do. It has beautiful and varied scenery which includes lakes and mountains, as well as quaint towns and villages. It has a 1840 km coastline with over two hundred beaches to suit every taste – all of which are renowned for their white sand, turquoise waters and cleanliness. This magical Italian island is a world apart from the Spanish 'Costas' and it is one of the Mediterranean's few unspoilt islands.
Within easy reach of Chiaramonti are the beautiful beaches of Costa Paradiso and Costa Smerelda, as well as the Lonely Planet Guide's # 1 beach in Sardinia, Spiaggia della Pelosa, which is near Stintino in the north-west corner of the island. On the west coast visit the beautiful towns of Oristano and Bosa, then experience the spectacular coastal drive up to the charming and bustling Catalan port-town of Alghero. Along the north coast there is a number of lovely coastal towns and villages, such as Castelsardo, Isola Rosa and Santa Teresa Gallura. A visit to the the gorgeous Maddalena islands, off the north-east coast, is a must. Inland, around Chiaramonti, there are several small towns and villages worth a visit, as well as the the large city of Sassari which has a wide range of shops, restaurants and other amenities.
Casa Grazia is in the historic centre of Chiaramonti - a beautiful hilltop village in the heart of the Sardinan countryside. It has narrow streets and cobbled lanes, and many of its pastel coloured houses hug the hills overlooking the valley below. At Chiaramonti's summit is the old castle ruin, which has stunning panoramic views.
As well as being beautiful, Chiaramonti is an authentic and traditional Sardinian town, not a faux tourist resort. The local people are very friendly and you will always be met with a "buongiorno" or "sera", depending on the time of day.
