Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, lounge with stylish kitchen corner and dining area, bathroom, balcony

Ideal for couples any age, this new (2010) modern flat is in the centre of town, a two minutes stroll to the Lungomare Dante, the town sea-front promenade leading to the Piazza Sulis square and the old historical town. It is near shops, restaurants, pizza houses, snack bars and banks. There are two large supermarkets within a few hundred yards. Take the lift to the third floor of this attractive new building. The flat has quality Italian design furniture and furnishings in a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. The well-equipped kitchen corner is a pleasure to use. The comfortable sized bathroom with shower is next to the double bedded bedroom with ample wardrobe space. There are 2 split air system heating and air-conditioning units - one in the bedroom and one in the lounge but the flat is so light and airy that it is not a 'must have' all year round. Relax on the front balcony and enjoy the sunsets. Double glazing keeps out street noises if you like quiet at bedtime.

About The owner

I came to Alghero in the 1970s as a resort rep/courier/guide working for an English holiday tour company and loved it. I settled here - (family two adult children) - and after qualifying in London as a TEFL teacher I now teach English in the State Secondary schools which I also really enjoy very much.

The owner purchased this apartment in 2010

Eccellente soggiorno

  • 5 of 5

L'appartamento è molto confortevole, ben tenuto e pulito con tutti gli accessori necessari, corrisponde perfettamente alle fotografie pubblicate e alla descrizione.

Nelle vicinanze si possono trovare due supermercati e la fermata dei mezzi pubblici e del bus che porta alle spiagge.

Anche vari ristoranti sono raggiungibili a piedi.

La proprietaria è molto gentile e disponibile, ci ha accolto all'aeroporto e ci ha dato molti suggerimenti. Consigliatissimo!

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful modern first class apartment spotlessly clean with everything you would need for a perfect stay. Nice balcony overlooking the street with a table & chairs for breakfast or evening meal and fold away sunbeds for the afternoon sun. Great location for the bars and restaurants which are just 5 mins walk down the road. Nearby supermarkets. Street parking, we stayed in mid June 2014 and never had a problem. Susan is a excellent host giving good sound advice on the local area and beyond. Thanks for a great stay Susan only wish we could have stayed longer but we will be back one day that's for sure.

Fantastic Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment that’s only 3 minutes walk to the old town. It has a beach five minutes away that locals use and the bigger ones are a twenty minute stroll through the old town to get to. The apartment is modern, spacious and immaculate and it was a joy coming back to after a hard day lying on the beach. You can relax with a drink and snack on the balcony or watch a movie before heading into the old town for some food and drinks. Susan was great and picked us up from the airport and told us all about alghero, she even provides chairs and an umbrella for the beach and even a picnic bag which we stocked with lunch snacks from the local supermarket and froze a bottle of water in the freezer on the hotter days. In short it has everything you need to have a relaxing holiday.

We really enjoyed our stay here and if visitng alghero again will definitely make this place our base.

Excellent location, beaches and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

The description of the apartment was accurate it was clean and well maintained. Susan the owner provided excellent customer service and we would definitely recommend the property. The local restaurants were excellent and within easy walking distance. We used a car to visit a range of beaches near Alghero. We would recommend a visit to Neptune's Cave. Alghero is a lovely place to stay.

A wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this apartment was wonderful!

Firstly the host Sue was incredibly welcoming and helpful, we were very grateful for her picking up us at the airport having had an early morning flight, and she also told us lots about the local area too! On arriving, there were already a few bits in the fridge/cupboard for us so we had a chance to settle in before heading to one of the 2 supermarkets within a 5 minute walk - another nice touch especially as we were self catering first timers!

The apartment itself is nicely furnished and the right size for 2 people, I was very pleasantly surprised by how well equipped it was - from bath robes to sun loungers and even a cool bag - it's all there to make exploring the local area (or just pottering about on the big balcony) very easy!

Location wise it is only a short walk to the old town and harbour where all the restaurants etc and excursion departures are, while the main beach is about 15/20 minutes on foot - there's no need for a car. As previously mentioned, there are decent sized supermarkets very nearby and it's also a very short walk to the sea walls, which had amazing sunset views. The apartment balcony itself has a side sea view which was another bonus!

The addition of SKY Movies and documentaries which can be watched in the original language (ie. mostly English) was a great plus too, as we enjoyed having the opportunity to stay in and watch a good film on some evenings which is something we rarely get to do at home.

Overall this apartment and Alghero made for a fantastic holiday, we just wish we were still there!

Superb stay - great apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at Sea-air was great! The apartment was in a residential area, conveniently located with restaurants and supermarkets close by. It was a short walk to the centre of town along the beach also.

The property itself was exactly as advertised, clean and well equipped -we enjoyed having use of the terrace. The owner, Susan, was very hospitable, not only adding some nice thoughtful touches by providing the basics within the apartment, but also very kind and helpful in all aspects, from picking us up to giving us tips on the local spots and where to visit/eat, she really helped to make our stay enjoyable.

Wonderful flat, highly recommended.

Car: not necessary

Alghero is on the spectacular north western stretch of Sardinian's coast called the Coral Coast. The flat is located in a very convenient position in the town centre, near the shops, supermarkets, restaurants and open air bars. Just two minutes stroll from Lungomare Dante, the town sea-front promenade, leading to one of the main squares and through to the cobbled streets of the old historic town which is a pedestrian zone. Here you can wander around, nose in all kinds of interesting little shops, visit the churches and admire the peaceful cloisters, come across other interesting corners, walk leisurely along the bastions that once completely surrounded the town and that follow the coastline offering wonderful views over the harbour and along the coast. From the flat you can walk easily down to the busy, picturesque harbour and then along the sea front to the lido and the sandy beach. Walking or hiring bikes is probably the best way to get around. A car is not necessary unless you would like to set off on your own and explore other areas of this stunning island, Sardinia.

If you feel like exploring along the coast there are more beautiful beaches to visit, perhaps by bus which stops not far from the flat. There are breathtaking natural views to see at Porto Conte. Capo Caccia and a boat trip to the Caves of Neptune are must-do's.

Alghero is extremely popular in the hot summer months with streets bustling with folk drawn by open air entertainment and good food. Then like all resorts, it becomes quieter in spring and autumn but it is then that its natural beauty can be appreciated in an equally pleasant but calmer atmosphere. The winter can be stormy, wet and windy but there are often long sunny spells to be enjoyed when its the perfect place to get away from it all.
