Overview

Alghero Villa Rental Photos and Description

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. 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,[1] 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.

Very nice and helpful owner he contacted us within 1 hour of our first enquiry with this place. Matt called us and explained everything we needed to know. The villa is well looked after and kept to a high standard of cleanliness. The agent he uses in Sardegna is also very helpful and understanding. This villa is a must, it is situated just outside the town so you get the relaxing peacefulness of the countryside yet closer enough to visit the main Old town of Alghero every night. The trip in took us no longer than 10 mins by car. The garden and grounds are very private and well managed by a local gardener.

The villa was clean and well equipped as a family of 4 this was an ideal house for our needs. The bedrooms and kitchen etc were all very clean and looked after well.

Overall, highly recommend and good value for money. Owners were very nice to deal with and provided info pack with good recommendations.

Excellent option just outside Alghero. Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Maison au calme à 5 minutes du centre d'Alghero

  • 5 of 5

Accueil sympathique d'Ashley, l'agent de Matthew, qui nous a donné toutes les informations nécessaires pour passer un bon séjour.

Maison spacieuse, propre et bien équipée, conformément à la description et aux commentaires laissés par les précédents locataires.

Nous avons apprécié le calme et encore plus la climatisation !!!

Maison idéalement située pour rayonner autour d'Alghero.

Mes filles ont apprécié la visite de quelques chats dans le jardin ;-)

Nous recommandons vraiment cette location.

What a Gem - quite relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We came across this villa while browsing the Internet. The owner is wonderful and replied to our enquiries very quickly. The villa is located outside the main town of Alghero so is ideal for a quite relaxing break from the normal stress of staying in a town. The villa has everything that is needed and is only a short drive from the main town. We will stay here again with no hesitation. Mike and Mandy
