Perfect location, family friendly

  • 4 of 5

My husband and our two toddlers stayed for four nights at the apartment in Palau and we wish we had longer. The apartment was very spacious with large bedrooms and living areas. The outdoors entertaining area was perfect to relax on in the evening and gave our toddlers extra space to run around. It was very clean and excellently set up with everything you need (including fully stocked kitchen). The owner and her son were both very welcoming and more than accommodating and prompt with any needs that arose - they really did go out of there way to ensure all our needs were well met. We didn't have a car so we mostly explored on foot and the appartment was perfect for this. It was walking distance to a well protected swimming beach, convenience store, restaurants and of course a great Gelato shop recommended by the owner. For our family it was also very well located with a children's playground, the tourist information center, bus stop and the ferry terminal all within a very close walking distance. We did a day trip on the ferry to La Maddalena which I would highly recommend. There was no air conditioning or fans in the appartment however I am not sure if fans are provided in the hotter months. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the appartment.

Ottimo posizione

  • 5 of 5

Proprietà- 1778309. Perfetto per famiglia di quattro altrimenti due copie. Il appartamento è estremamente conveniente al centro di Palau. La cucina e completo con tutto l’attrezzamento necessario per cucinare in casa. La bellissima terrazza offre il modo migliore per fare un può di relax con aperitivi oppure cena. Stavamo vicino a tutto che offriva il centro ma localizzato sul un vicolo affianco la strada principale, quindi evitando la commozione di gente e macchine. Si lascia la macchina e si può godere l’accesso al porto, ristoranti e negozi. Ce un ufficio di Sardinia Island Tour nello stesso edificio a piano terra con eccellente conoscenza di tutti le attività per fare in Sardinia.

Geeignet für Windsurfer (und Familien)

  • 5 of 5

Wir sind zum Windsurfen ins nördliche Sardinien gereist und haben diese super Unterkunft gefunden. Sauber und geräumig (wir hatten zu viert mehr als genügend Platz) und zentral gelegen. Sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Vermieter.

Für Windsurfer: Die Vermieterin hat uns einen Abstellraum hinter dem Haus zur Verfügung gestellt. Da konnten wir unser Surfmaterial gut und sicher verstauen.

We went to northern Sardinia for windsurfing and have found this large (we were 4 and had more than enough place) and cozy apartement right in the centre of Palau. Clean flat, friendly and helpful owner.

For windsurfers: The backyard of the building offers a useful and safe place to put the boards and sails.

Palau is located in one of the most spectacular branches of the northeastern coast of Sardinia, opposite the island of La Maddalena. The country is characterized by coasts artistically molded by nature and unique in the world accompanied by 25 km of beautiful beaches and rocky coves.

Palau is an excellent starting point to visit the most famous and fascinating of the coast: the promontory of Capo d'Orso, culminating in a large rock sculpted by the wind which has the shape of a plantigrade. Punta Sardegna is reached along the road leading up to Mount Altura and then down to the beach of Cala Trana, end of the tip. The view from here is exceptional. Of particular beauty is the Battery of Monte Altura, in a panoramic position reached by the road leading to Porto Rafael. The beauty of its beaches is also accompanied by the attraction of the small historic center of the village.

Palau harbor you can embark on a ferry for La Maddalena (only 15 min. Of navigation); the town is fascinating for its ancient buildings overlooking the sea and the internal streets with steps, characterized by wrought iron balconies. L 'adjoining island of Caprera headquarters of hero Giuseppe Garibaldi and its museums can be reached by bus. L 'island is easily explored by car: this allows to explore its beautiful bays and enjoy its breathtaking scenery.

Palau harbor you can take the Green Train to discover the inland hills on which climbs through a landscape of dense scrub, oaks and junipers in a unique and amazing in green and rocks.

Palau is also a great "hubs" from which it is easy to reach all the tourist attractions of Northern Sardinia such as Porto Cervo and the Costa Smeralda, the Archipelago of La Maddalena and its National Park, Santa Teresa di Gallura, Bonifacio and Corsica (1 hour sailing), The medieval village of Castelsardo, the beautiful town of Tempio the typical granite houses under the imposing Monte Limbara (1,362 m. above sea level) and much more ..

For lovers of the region offers sites of "Tombs of the Giants", granite of ancient burials and some "Nuraghi", testimonies of a glorious civilization.

The entire area is surrounded by an aura of magic that only the land kissed by the time can boast, and that so captivates its visitors to encourage them to deepen the path within it since in every corner.
