Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Elizabeth,



We had some very great days in Alghero. Your flat is very nice furnished and it did function very well.

The location is optimal,- convenient and very romantic. And your concern about your guests are so overwhelming,- the correspondence both before our arrival and here afterwards, and how Lucia was meeting us when we came to Alghero. It was all handled in a top professionel way. The start-kit is also a very nice and convenient gesture!!



We had three days with sunshine and 20 c ,- top nice!!!



We will definitely be back in Alghero and in your flat if it is possible.



Kind regards,



Thomas and Tine

A great holiday!

  • 4 of 5
The booking process was simple and the instructions clear. The apartment was well maintained, clean and contained everything we needed. We loved the location, being in the middle of the old town was, in our view, the best place to be in Alghero.

FANTASTIC!!! Five star apartment and service

  • 5 of 5
We visited Alghero for the first time in July and loved it. The apartment was fantastic! The design was beautiful and the location in the centre of the old town was absolutely perfect. The bedroom was so comfortable and we had all the conveniences we needed plus the great little touches that the hosts provided with their welcome gift. Elizabeth and Giuseppe were very helpful prior to our arrival and during our stay. They made us feel as if we knew the town even before we landed. They were always available if we needed something and Margherita could also be reached to help if we needed. We immediately got into the Alghero vibe and when we came back to London after a fabulous holiday we raved to all our family and friends that they had to visit!! We definitely recommend Alghero and Spinnaker Holidays and hope to be back again next summer.

Very nice renovation in great location

  • 4 of 5
We loved being in Alghero and were so pleased with the convenience of the apartment to the best of the walled city. It's location to the harbor, the whole of the walled city couldn't have been better. Some may not like the two flights of stairs to the apartment or the spiral staircase to the low ceiling loft where the bed and closets are, but we liked the exercise. Everything was neat and clean, the decor very attractive. The nice bottle of wine, the milk, bottled water, and the fresh fruit left as a welcome to us was especially nice.
There are so many things to do in Alghero. Walking the narrow cobbled streets was always fun, coming on yet another shop we hadn't seen before, trying some of the many, many restaurants. Cars are restricted, so walking was comfortable.
We especially liked walking on the wall and eating there overlooking the harbor and the clear blue sea. Bus service to other areas was easy so we didn't need a car. Just sitting in the piazza having a latte and espresso watching people was a delight. We had great weather the whole time.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for staying with us and for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your vacation. The apartment is located in Piazza Civica, the very heart of the old town, on the second floor of a XV century building and has a balcony and no lift (this is the case for most buildings in the historic centre dating back several centuries). We fell in love with the apartment and its location as it appears you did, too. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future.

Stylische Wohnung im Zentrum von Alghero

  • 4 of 5
Wir wurden perfekt auf die Wohnung vorbereitet durch Elizabeth und Guiseppe. Das war wirklich toll. Vom Welcomebook bis zu Fragen, die sofort beantwortet wurden. Zur Begrüßung gab es Obst, Nespressokapseln, Wein, Milch, Riegel , Gewürze. Die Wohnung verfügt sogar über eine Waschmaschiene. Der Empfang durch Margarita war auch sehr nett.
Die Wohnung ist sehr chic. Top modisch eingerichtet in einem sehr schönen Haus. Mitten im Zentrum von Alghero. Mitten im Geschehen. Wir wurden während unseres Aufenthalts sogar nochmals per SMS gefragt, ob wir irgendetwas brauchen. Es war sehr schön......

Overall an excellent property

  • 4 of 5
Overall an excellent property. The property was very clean and well maintained and had everything we needed,including an extensively equipped kitchen. The owners Elizabeth and Guiseppe were very easy to deal with and very prompt in answering any of our queries. We did however have a couple of minor problems one of which was with our 'greeter', who was delightful but had very little English and did not meet us at the pre-arranged time and place. The other problem we had was with the mezzanine bedroom which has a limited ceiling height and we had to stoop very low to access the bed. Apart from that, the apartment is great. It's in a great location close to the local buses that can take you around the local areas, as well as across the island. There are a lot of cafes and restaurants nearby - we had dinner at one of the restaurants recommended by Elizabeth 'Al Mullino' (a place where the locals go) and the food was fantastic and not expensive and the service was excellent despite the fact that it was very busy. The supermarket is a short 10 mns walk away and easy to find. We would definitely recommend this property to others. Alan & Lesley, Australia.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review, we are very happy that you enjoyed your holiday in Alghero and your stay in our beautiful apartment. We are sorry that you experienced some minor delay at check in. The timetable and the local bus schedules are rarely reliable particularly when travelling involves - like in your case - several stops and bus changes in the journey from the other side of the island. For this reason, it is advisable that our guests travel with a working mobile phone so they can contact our greeter as they approach Alghero, especially if there is a delay with transportation (they have her contact details in advance). Our greeter's English has much improved throughout the season and she is well able to manage the check in as well as provide basic information about the apartment and the town. We much appreciate your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you again soon. Kind regards

In the heart of Alghero

  • 4 of 5
Lovely flat in the heart of the old town. It's nicely designed, with a mezzanine bedroom. The living area is spacious with a balcony overlooking the Piazza Civica. Close to the beach and port, as well as local restaurants, it's lively but never too noisy or obtrusive. Bikes are easy to hire and we cycled out of town a couple of times. An iron would be a welcome addition to the well-kitted out flat, but otherwise, there's everything you need for a short and enjoyable stay. Our dealings with the owners, and Marguerhita who greeted us, were very easy, straighforward and we felt welcome.

Alghero is a vibrant, modern city that has a local population year round of approximately 40,000 people. Various cultural events and exhibits take place throughout the year. Walking historic cobbled stone streets, under the arches and along the walled bastions that protected this city from invasion will captivate your imagination. You can find ancient churches and fortresses as you wander throughout the city. Visitors can also gain an understanding of the local culture by visiting the 'Mercato' or Market in the centre of town which is overflowing with local fruits and vegetables, fish that has arrived fresh from the sea that morning, local meats and cheeses from the countryside, and the famous breads (a must have is the pane guttiau...trust us!) and dolce.

Local beaches and restaurants are all within walking distance. Bicycles are also available. For those looking to explore the sites in the vicinity, we recommend renting a car to take you to the cliffs of Capo Caccia, the Grotte di Nettuno or to the beaches of Bombarde or Stintino. The coastlines around Alghero are stunning with views of Capo Caccia from all angles. A short drive will take one to either Bosa further south or Stintino a bit further north, each of which are rich in local culture and history.

The temperatures in the summer on the coast can average 28 degrees celcius, but can get up to the mid 30's in August. It is possible to swim from May to November as the summer months can extend for about 6/7 months. The spring time is more mild and allow the visitors to appreciate the lush green countryside prior to the arrival of the dry heat of the summer.

Sardinia is the second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and is known as an island of the extremes. Rugged coast lines, turquoise and emerald coloured seas, large areas of pastures and dense mountain ranges in the centre of the Island. It was first inhabited by man in 6,000 B.C and is known for its rich archaeological history. The first settlers were from the Italian mainland and the Iberian peninsula. The Island has a history of invasion with one of the first being the Phoenicians and defended itself against constant coastal raids from the Carthagians, Byzantines and Berbers. In 1354 the Aragons seized Alghero and transformed it into a Catalan city. Visitors will still see elements of the Iberian origins (the Aragons were in power for 400 years in Alghero) in the local dialect which is similar to Catalan and can be seen in the dual named street signs. Since the 18th century the Italian royal family used to spend their summer holiday in Alghero.

By Air: Alghero is served by numerous Italian and European airlines including Ryanair and Alitalia. Flight times is approx two hours from most European destinations. Alghero airport is 10 km away and can be reached in a 15 minutes taxi drive from the old town. Ryanair flies to Alghero from Ancona, Barcelona, Bari, Billund, Bremen, Brussels, Dublin, Dusselfdorf, Eindhoven, Frankfurt, Genoa, Liverpool, London, Madrid, Memminghen, Milan, Oslo, Paris, Parma, Pisa, Rome, Stockholm, Turin, Venice and Verona. Alghero is also 1h30 minutes drive from Olbia airport. All major car rental are represented in both airports.

By Sea: Alghero is well connected via a number of ferry services from mainland. The most effective connection is from Genoa to Porto Torres (or Olbia) with an overnight crossing arriving at 7:00am. Alghero is only a 45 minutes drive.
