Enjoy Fine Wines of Sardinia
Sardinia holidays on the northwest coast of the island allow you to enjoy the picturesque old town of Alghero. Alghero's older sections are surrounded by newer tourist infrastructure including hotels, bars and restaurants. The beaches are a very attractive feature of the Alghero region, where the hot summer temperatures invite you to take a dip the clear Mediterranean waters.
Inland is lush pine forest with vineyards beyond, producing some of the fine wines of the island that must be enjoyed on Sardinia holidays. Having been invaded by the Pedro the IV of Aragon in the 14th century, the cuisine of Alghero has certain Spanish influences, including some excellent seafood such as Spanish paellas, fish and lobster dishes. The pace of life is slow and relaxed on holidays in Sardinia. Expect more dining al fresco and sipping cocktails than discos and nightclubs.
