Great stay in Alghero

  • 5 of 5
We've never been to Alghero before, but would definitely return! The apartment is in a great location, the beach is a ten minute walk, supermarket 5 minutes and there is so much choice for restaurants and bars to have a glass of wine and watch the world go by.

The apartment itself was equipped with everything we needed, and after an early morning flight it was lovely to be welcomed with fresh fruit, fresh milk, and even a bottle of sparkling Italian White! The owners were very helpful from when we first booked to our arrival, and their welcome book was great.

The bedroom is on a mezzanine floor, which was fine for myself and my husband, though may be something to bear in mind for the less agile! It was clean and furnished nicely. There is also air con, which was a godsend! Shower was nice and hot and the kitchen well equipped. There is a washing machine and hairdryer too and we were also able to loan beach towels, which saved on excess baggage!

A great stay, we were just gutted we only had a week here.

The only thing missing for us was a balcony, but we tended to get back from the beach, get changed and then walk through the cobbled streets and have a drink and food, so it wasn't too much of an issue.

great place

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is excellently located in the heart of atmospheric Alghero. It was the perfect base for us (two adults and a 10 month old baby) to explore the town. The apartment has all the facilities you need 10/10.

Vacaciones Perfectas

  • 5 of 5
Solo podemos decir, que han sido unas vacaciones perfectas. Hemos podido disfrutar de unos dias maravillosos en la isla. El apartamento tiene todo lo necesario para cubrir con creces una estancia de cuatro personas. Limpio, moderno, no falta ningun detalle. Pero lo mejor de este apartamento es su ubicacion, perfecta. Esta en centro historico de Alghero, a un paso de todo en la ciudad, tiendas, restaurantes, locales de ocio. Agradecer tambien el trato recibido por parte de los propietarios, Giusseppe y Elizabeth, que han estado ayudandonos desde el primer momento que contactamos con ellos y durante nuestra estancia en Alghero, asi como a Margarita. Gracias de corazon por hacernos las cosas tan faciles. Solo esperamos volver y poder disfrutar otra vez de todo ese encanto que tiene Alghero y su hermosa ciudad.
Enhorabuena, y sigan asi.

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 Celsius, 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.

Br 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.
