Things to do
Even though people have been living in the area since prehistoric times, the medieval town of Alghero was founded at the beginning of the 12th century. Its founders were Genoese, but over the centuries the town was ruled by various European royal houses. This has brought a unique cultural flavour to Alghero, most notably evident in the fact that more than a fifth of the population still speaks Algherese Catalan, a dialect unique to Alghero, as their first language.
-A guided walking tour is a great way to discover the medieval architecture with its gorgeous old churches, towers and old city walls. You can also simply leave your holiday apartment in Alghero Old Town to stroll around in the maze of narrow little alleys letting fate be your guide. Be sure to take a walk along the seafront-facing walls and boardwalks too and don’t forget your camera.
-Museums are a great way to find out more about the area’s fascinating history, and there are several in Alghero. They include the Museo Archeologico della Città and the Museum Casa Manno for historical artefacts and the Museo Diocesano d'Arte Sacra for religious art. The Museo del Corallo is all about the endangered red coral that Alghero is famous for.
-Food and shopping are essential features of a great holiday, so you’re in for a treat in Alghero. Put on some comfortable shoes for navigating the cobbled streets of the Old Town: The most difficult part is deciding which of the many shops, boutiques, restaurants and bars to visit first. You can also visit one of the daily markets or the big weekly one held on a Wednesday for fresh produce and local specialities like Mirto liqueur. If you’re planning on renting an Alghero Old Town holiday villa or other accommodation in March or April and you have adventurous taste buds, be sure to check out the Sea Urchin Festival.
-Neptune’s Grotto, about 10 miles west of town at Cappo Caccia is a must-visit on a day when the sea is calm. This breath-taking cave with its underwater lake and entrance at sea level is like something out of a pirate’s tale. You can get there by boat, on foot, by bicycle or, if you want to feel very Italian, by renting a scooter.
-Outdoors activities are plentiful in the area around Alghero. There are great beaches, hiking and cycling trails, horse-riding, bird-watching, rock climbing and water sports. The area around Neptune’s Grotto is regarded as one of Europe’s best scuba-diving sites, especially for cave diving.

Beautiful apartment, lovely location.
My partner and I enjoyed an excellent week in this well-equipped, spotlessly clean apartment, which is situated in the very scenic and unspoiled Old Town. Parking is at the free car park opposite the port, a 10 minute walk away along the city wall. The Mediterranean is at the end of the street and there are many good restaurants nearby. Surprisingly, despite its central location, the apartment is extremely quiet as there is no traffic, only friendly local people walking their cute dogs. The owner could not be more helpful; my stay could have been marred by toothache, but Antonella responded immediately to a text message asking for advice, putting me in touch with a first-rate dentist nearby, who treated me free of charge! Overall, this is an ideal base for exploring the many attractions to be found in this part of a fascinating and stunningly beautiful island. Highly recommended.
Senior couple from Milan.
We spent 4 days in Alghero. The apartment was nice, clean, fully equipped and quiet according to the description.
Location in perfect to visit the Historic Center.
Lisa did a great job with keys, payment and information.
Critical point (only for people "over 70") the stairs steep and narrow.
We will recommend this apartment to our youngest friends.
thank you for your review.
The stairs and the architecture are part of the beauty of the old town.
All the stairs of the old town are very stiff because they were built in 1600.
Wonderful stay in Alghero old town
We had a great time in Alghero. It is really the most beautiful town on Sardinia. Just amazing.
The little flat ist really good located in the old town. You don't need to do more than a few steps to reach the best restaurants and bars at the beautiful seaside (around 5 restaurants in the circle of 200 meters). But is just far enough away from the tables outside that you can sleep with windows open :)
A little tiring was the fact, that the old town is not open for cars, and so you have to park outside and walk the last meters to the apartment. But this applies for the whole old town...
The Apartment was perfect clean. It was equipped carefully by the very very friendly landlady. She gave us great support for our stay. Excellent!
Thank you for the review! I am very happy you loved Alghero and enjoyed the stay in the flat!
Nice apartment on a very good location.
We stayed in the apartment for three days and we had everything we needed in this charming apartment. Everything about keys, payment, information etc. was very well organised. The charming old city of Alghero is right outside the door and there is only 50 meters to the sea and the promenade with beautiful sunsets and atmosphere. We went to some of the restaurants suggested by Antonella - Pesce d'oro and Aragon - and they were good.
I am very glad you had a nice stay in the flat. Thank you for your nice review!
Sehr schönes kleines Appartement - ideal gelegen!
Das Appartement ist sehr liebevoll eingerichtet, auf kleinem Raum findet sich alles was man braucht. Küche komplett, Bad klein und fein, alles sauber. Für 2 Erwachsene und 1 Kind einfach ideal. Die steile Treppe in den 3. Stock ist sicher nicht für ältere Menschen geeignet, sonst aber kein Problem. Wir können diese Unterkunft wirklich uneingeschränkt empfehlen und würden sie jederzeit wieder buchen. Einziges Manko vielleicht: fehlendes WIFI und keinedeutschsprachigen Fernsehsender - wir haben es nicht vermisst.
Thank you so much for your lovely review. You are super kind. It is my pleasure to know you appreciate my apartment because it is very important people feel like home.
Hope to have you again as my guest.
Perfect apartment, great location
We had a wonderful week i Sardinia, Alghero in September 2013. The charming apartment at via Cavour in Old city was perfect. Everything lived up to the description and we had all the facilities we could ask for. Our landlord Antonella provided us with information regarding beaches, restaurants, attractions and everything lived up to our expectations. We especially appreciated Antonellas suggestions for restaurants everyone was really good. We will return to Alghero and we will absolute book this apartment again.
