Sardinia is part of Italy and separated from the mainland by the Tyrrhenian Sea. Several ferry links connect the paradise-like island with Italian ports.

Heavenly beach vacation on Sardinia

The most important criteria for holiday makers on Sardinia are sun, beach and recreation. Numerous beautiful natural beaches shape the 1,800 kilometre long coastline of Sardinia and the azure blue sea provides a heavenly backdrop. The most beautiful beaches include those of the Costa Smeralda in the province Olbia-Tempio towards the north east of the island. Between Palau and Olbia many small bays with white sandy beaches are hidden between long stretched granite rocks. Here the villages Porto Cervo und Porto Rotondo are regarded as Europe’s best holiday domiciles. As each year national and international celebrities gather here for their summer holiday it is clear that properties will come at a price. Considerably less pricy and equally attractive is the Costa Rei along the eastern coast of Sardinia. The small bays and the long sandy beaches of the coastal area north of Sant'Elmo guarantee relaxing sun baths as well as entertainment including a wide range of water sports. Costa Paradiso is situated in the north of Sardinia lies and the name says it all. Many small bays are hidden between the red cliffs.

Discover from a holiday home the area away from the beaches

Enough of sun bathing at the beach? Then you could go and discover the sights of Sardinia. For example you could visit the many picturesque towns and villages, such as the capital Cagliari in the south or Sassari on the north side of the island. Discover the natural sights of the enchanting landscape such as the countless limestone caves and grottos or the red rocks of Arbatax. Or visit the mysterious towers of the Nuraghen culture which lived on the island in pre-Christian times. Especially worth seeing is the Su Nuraxi complex in the province Medio Campidano. Also worthwhile is a trip to the rugged Gennargenta Mountains in the heartland of the island. The island’s highest peak is the 1,834 metre high Punta la Marmona and can even be reached by ski lift so that during appropriate weather conditions you can swap the beach with the snow. Generally the island is ideal for an active vacation with discoveries and excursions possible throughout the year. Away from the main streets there are various great hiking and mountain bike tours available. You are able to explore beautiful beaches which can only be reached via farm lanes and the additional benefit is the places are secluded providing a charming ambience. Also worth a visit is the neighbouring French island Corsica which is just 12 kilometres to the north. Ferries regularly operate from Santa Teresa Gallura to Bonifacio and from Palau to Porto-Vecchio.

Those who want to travel with their own car can choose one of the ferries that operate between the Italian mainland and Porto Torres, Olbia, Arbatax and Cagliari on Sardinia.

On arrival it is possible to rent a car in order to undertake the one or other trip around the island.

    “The house is a bit away from Sestu place on a mountain. For us was the attraction in this solitude and the beautiful view. A car is absolutely necessary! The place is, however, only one, two kilometers away and has everything on shopping, what you need for everyday use. We made daily trips, for which one has to factor min each way at least 45, virtually wherever. We have beautiful days spent in Iglesias, Pula / Nora with the Roman archaeological sites, Cagliari, the beaches on the way to Villasimius, in the grotto of San Giovanni, on the island of Sant 'Antioco and to go up to Villaputzu on the east coast. Beautifully the car rides through the mountains or on the coast are in fact already long. Everywhere you can find even on maps posted idyllic little beach coves or elongated white sandy beaches.

    Since we were traveling in October, some pure tourist places had towards Villasimius already folded up the sidewalks, but we never had a parking problem, and even the city beaches of Cagliari were relatively empty despite the continuous super weather 26-29 degrees.”
