Old Town (Alghero) Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
Sunny, waterfront apartment in Alghero with a fantastic bay view on the northwest coast of Sardinia called the Coral Riviera. The apartment (approximately 100 square metres), located on the second floor of an elevator building, comprises two bedrooms (one with a sea-view balcony), full kitchen, a double living/dining room area facing the sea with two balconies, two bathrooms (a larger one with a bathtub and a smaller one with shower). It is fully air conditioned and has heating available whenever needed.
The apartment is ideally located as it faces the bay of Alghero and has a wonderful view of the old city with its Spanish bastions and church bell towers, the port with its fishing boats and pleasure crafts, and the magnificent coastline and beaches extending along the bay. You can cross the street and walk along the beaches stretching the length of the coastline toward the Lido. Alternately, stroll along the promenade in front of the port toward the city center, with its many shops and cafés.
Alghero can be visited at any time of year. The old Catalan city dates back to Aragonese rule in the fourteenth century although some maintain the town’s origins go back to the eleventh century. In addition to white sandy beaches, beautiful Mediterranean vegetation with protected natural areas, there are sites of archaeological interest such as the Nuraghe of Palmavera (ancient megalithic-age dwellings), the Necropolis of Anghelu Ruju, or the Grottoes of Neptune with caverns revealing a delicate lace work of stalactites and stalagmites. For those who might be interested, current archaeological research is taking place in Sardinia to determine whether the island might be the mythical Atlantis mentioned by Plato in his works. Many cultural events are held in Alghero during the summer season and year-round in the nearby city of Sassari only a short half hour away.
