Villas in Sardinia

With its breathtaking scenery, delicious cuisine, wine and fascinating culture, it’s no wonder that Sardinia is revered by the Italians themselves. The island has something for everyone, from jet-set sophistication on the ‘Emerald Coast’, to deserted white sandy coves and turquoise seas in the south. With vibrant towns rich in arts and relics and rolling green countryside, Sardinia is unique, untainted and utterly unmissable.

Sardinia - A feast for the eyes and the palate

Emerald waters meet white sands along a coastline coveted by the Italians themselves. It’s in these sweet spots that our Sardinia villas sit. The prime coastal locations - from the capital Cagliari in the south to the northern most tip - let you live and relive the island’s many delights.

  • Sardinia Activities

    Awash with natural beauty, Sardinia’s landscape is the ideal terrain for a host of sporting activities. From gentle family walks to challenging climbs, its inland mountainous region is great for trekking. Horse riding is a very popular activity here, whether through rich, green countryside or on the white sandy beaches. There’s also golf, cycling tours and sailing excursions.

  • Sardinia Food

    Eating out in Sardinia is a family affair full of fun and enjoyment. Typically Italian dishes of antipasti, pasta and pizza are widely available across the island – often encompassing the Sardinian slant of fresh, grilled seafood. For a true taste of the region’s distinctive cuisine on your villa holiday, choose from ‘burrida’ (fish marinated in a walnut and garlic sauce), pecorino cheese made from sheep's milk and thin bread called carta musica (or music paper.) Sardinian wine is first-rate, and it’s traditional to finish off your meal with a strong Italian coffee.

  • Sardinia Beaches

    Sardinia’s coastline is dominated by long white sandy beaches and breathtaking views. The stunning six-mile-long beach at Poetto, lined with kiosks selling fresh seafood, pizza and refreshments, offers a great escape from bustling city life in Cagliari. East of Cagliari you’ll find some sensational shorelines, with picturesque family-friendly coves and bays that stretch for miles. In the North east, the beautiful beaches of the popular Costa Esmerelda, known as the emerald coast are endless, whilst the admirable white sands of le pelosa near Stintino, provides yet another relaxing haven.

  • Sardinia Nightlife

    The nightlife in Sardinia is extremely laidback. Expect to wine and dine on a terrace under the stars, or sip espresso in a pavement café. For more capital entertainment on your villa holiday, Cagliari is much busier with lively places for late-night drinking and dancing. Poetto is a blitz of bars, fairgrounds and ice-cream kiosks - a good way to while away a summer evening - and smaller resorts like Villasimius offer localised bars and restaurants ideal for family holiday entertainment. Colourful street festivals, open air opera and ballet performances are also a regular occurrence on the island.

  • Sardinia Holidays - Points of Interest

    • Take a trip to the archaeological Nuraghic settlement in Su Nuraxi, dating back to 1,100 BC, and learn about Sardinia’s ancient civilisations.

    • Visit the Capital Cagliari and catch a ‘Serie A’ football game at the Cagliari Calcio stadium where one-time Chelsea star Gianfranco Zola once played.

    • Walk around the fortified walls in Alghero, stroll around the tangle of cobbled lanes to visit the Duomo (cathedral) and then find a small restaurant or pizzeria followed by shopping in one of the many small chic boutiques.

    • Try the ruby-red Capo Ferrato wine, produced locally in Villasimius, with a typically Sardinian dish like fried gianchettus (tiny fish).

    • Take a drive through Sardinia’s winding countryside roads, stopping off to take pictures of the island’s rugged, unspoilt rural beauty spots.

    • Explore glamorous Porto Cervo and shop in the designer boutiques or enjoy a coffee whilst admiring the yachts that dock in the harbour.

    • Ballet and opera season falls between January and June – be sure to experience the magic of an open air performance.

Local beaches, Pula and Nora Roman site. Villasimius for a holiday town. Local restaurant "Palmyra", fish shop and minimarket. Car hire Locauto was good.
Other restaurants shut on the 10th September, we arrived on the 15th. Usual Airport chaos.
