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.

Places to Visit

Corsica

Sail over to the French island of Corsica and visit the breathtaking town of Bonifacio with its fascinating harbour accessible through a gap in the rocks! The town itself looks as though its about to fall into the sea at any moment as it clings precariously to the cliff side.

Neptune Caves

Sardinia has a vast array of caves to explore but some of the best are considered to be Neptune Caves. Sail from Alghero along the stunning coastline to these underground beauties with stalactites and stalagmites filling the 4km cavern, complete with an underground salt water lake.

Alghero

Affectionately known as 'Little Barcelona' as it's full of Spanish history, Alghero takes a step back in time. Explore the Medieval walled town with cobbled streets, pavement cafes and locals going about their daily life.

A Luxury Holiday in Sunny Sardinia

The Costa Smeralda on the northeast coast is the top location for Sardinia holidays, featuring a six-mile stretch of fine beaches backed by stylish Hotels and private villas. Porto Cervo is the main town in the area featuring pastel coloured villas rising up from the pretty marina, which is packed with expensive looking yachts. A Sardinia holiday in Porto Rotondo is the place to be for bars, restaurants and vibrant nightlife. Porto Rotondo is located close to the Airport at Olbia. Sardinia holidays in the Fortevillage on the south coast of the island are a luxuriant experience of warm weather, long white sand beaches and crystal clear water. The area is protected by a mountain range to give it a pleasant climate that never gets too hot or too windy. This self-contained resort features all kinds of sporting and leisure activities to keep you entertained and some glorious gourmet restaurants. The Piazza Maria Luigia in the heart of the resort is the location for those who know their Gucci from their Bulgari, with big name fashion and jewellery outlets galore.

Attractions Of Sardinia

From Alghero, take a boat trip to Neptune's grotto, a marine cave set in the cliffs of Capo Caccia. A tour of the caves allows you to see the dramatic stalagmites and stalactites deep within the rock face. Sardinia holidays can also give you time for a bit of shopping. The chic shops and boutiques of the Costa Smeralda are the place to buy upmarket designer clothes and accessories. In Fortevillage the natural beauty of the area provides an excellent setting to take a morning stroll and sit down to some exquisite seafood or roasted fresh meat dishes. A Sardinia holiday is not without its active Side either. Take to the water for a spot of waterskiing or jetskiing with highly professional instructors on hand to get you started.
