A quiet Villa 10 mins from Sardegna's beautiful beaches
This romantic self-catering villa is based 15 mins from Alghero International Airport and only 5km from the nearest beach. The old town of Alghero is one of the most beautiful old walled towns in Sardegna. The beaches are only 5km away from this villa of dreams.
New Swimming Pool built April 2017.
The garden is some 2500 square meters and very quite and secluded. The nearest supermarket is only 2km away and all the main restaurants selling locally caught fish are within the town of Alghero.
Ryanair fly to Alghero all year round from a number of international airports. We would recommend hiring a car from Hertz.
The area of today's Alghero has been settled since pre-historic times. The so-called Ozieri culture was present here in the 4th millennium BC while the Nuraghe civilization was present in the area around 1500 BC, as traces of Phoenician buildings have been found not far from the city.
Due to its strategic position in the Mediterranean Sea, Alghero was built around a fortified port, founded around 1102 by the Genoese Doria family. The Doria ruled it for centuries, apart from a brief period under the rule of Pisa (1283–1284). In 1353 it was captured by the Aragonese under Bernardo de Cabrera; in 1372, following several revolts, the indigenous Sardinian population was expelled, and Alghero could later grow thanks to the arrival of Catalan colonists. In the early 16th century Alghero received the status of King's City (ciutat de l'Alguer) and developed economically.
The Catalano-Aragonese were followed by the Spanish Habsburgs, whose dominion, ending in 1702, brought some stylish elegance to the city. In 1720 Alghero and Sardinia were handed over to the Piedmont based House of Savoy. Around 1750 a wide channel was excavated to improve the defensive position of the peninsula. In 1821 famine led to a revolt of the population, which was bloodily suppressed. At the end of the same century Alghero was de-militarised and, during the Fascist era, part of the surrounding marshes was reclaimed and the suburbs of Fertilia and S.M. La Palma were founded. During World War II (1943) Alghero was bombed, and its historical centre suffered heavy damage. The presence of malaria in the countryside was finally overcome in the 1950s.
Since then, Alghero has become a popular tourist resort.

New Pool Amazing
This villa has just had a new pool build May 2017 and wow what a difference this makes to the villa. The villa is ideally situated not too far from the town, beaches or supermarket but far enough away for privacy and relaxation.
Nice house / villa near Alghero with pool.
Pleasant, well maintained, clean and tidy Villa in country setting short car ride from Alghero. Easy to get into Alghero to eat in the evenings or shopping or to the various local beaches. Really nice town / area to visit with nice beaches and sea. People are friendly and it feels pretty safe. Our kids are 12 and really enjoyed it. The pool is nice and new and has a good shade at the back so it's possible to keep out of direct sunlight - pleasant to sit out in the garden at anytime of day.
Thank you Simon so glad you enjoyed your stay. All returning visitors receive a discount.
Excellent option just outside Alghero. Exceeded expectations!
Secluded property, large home on about 1/2 acre, well-equipped, helpful local manager. The photos look good; the reality is better. Four of us enjoyed a week a Villa Gaskin in September 2015. The property is located a few kilometers outside Alghero, and closer to supermarkets and at least one very enjoyable place to eat out (Ristorante Pizzeria Bacchus). Access to the marina, parking and old town of Alghero is dead simple. The location is also ideal for driving around the area. FYI - the villa is located almost 1 km from the paved highway (SS127bis) on an unpaved road. We would not hesitate to stay there again and highly recommend this property.
Thank you for your kind words about our home. We are very happy you enjoyed your stay and the property meet all your needs. If you do return we offer a 15% discount on return renters.
Alghero old town has many attractions, for walkers, cyclists, surfers, diving and all water sports. Try the local speciality of locally caught fish. The local beaches are some of the most beautiful in Sardegna.
