10 things to do in Sardinia

Golfo

Sarah’s top 10 tips for making your stay in Sardinia even more enjoyable (above Relais Villa del Golfo & Spa). 

Capo Testa: see the waves crash against the magnificent rocks. Stay at Colonna Grande Capo Testa

Porto Cervo Marina: take a glimpse at how the other half live in their yachts. Stay at Liscia di Vacca

Nuraghe Albucciu: one of the original ‘self-catering properties’ built 4,000 years ago and still standing. Stay at Residence Riva Azzurra

Enjoying a glass of wine watching the sun set. Stay at Aquila Bianca.

Stargazing: the Milky Way will never look as close again with no intrusive town lights. Stay at Mascaratu

Crispy pork and Cannonau wine: our local fare is simple and totally irresistible! Stay at Lu Ciaccaru

Take an early morning dip in the clear blue sea. Stay at Villa Rafael

Archipelago of La Maddalena: either just view it from across the bay, visit it by ferry or sail around it in a sailing boat. Stay at Elena

Taste the excellent Vermentino white wine at the Surrau cantina. Stay at Villa del Golfo

People watching in the main piazza of Porto Cervo; fascinating and highly entertaining. Stay at Capriccioli.

Sarah’s top 10 places to stay in Sardinia

Sarah writes: Winter has finally come in Sardinia and we are down to a chilly 8 degrees centigrade along with a cold north wind. However I musn’t complain: the sea is still a vibrant blue, the sun continues to shine (well most days) and the backdrop of the snow covered mountains in Corsica is just stunning.

As I was on my way for a hot cappuccino and a sticky bun (well it is nearly Christmas and swimsuit season is months away), I started musing on which are my personal favourite places to stay in Sardinia. Here’s my top 10:

Rosetta

Rosetta: almost on the beach and perfect for a couple.

Casa_wasa

Casa Wasa: private jetty and superb location for 6.

Casa_qandra

Casa Qandra: sleeps 4 but is the perfect romantic hideaway for 2 with gorgeous pool.

Hotel_is_morus

Hotel Is Morus: beach location and simply a step back in time.

Hotel_la_coluccia

Hotel La Coluccia: Sardinian beach chic.

Torretta

Torretta: huge terrace and seafront situation for up to 5.

Due_mari

Due Mari: tiny apartment sleeping 2 with everything you could need including view.

Capriccioli

Capriccioli: great traditionally furnished apartments almost on one of the most prestigious beaches of the Costa Smeralda. 

Su_gologone

Su Gologone: country retreat in stunning surroundings with fantastic local food.

Hotel_le_dune

Hotel Le Dune: as the name suggests, this is the perfect beach holiday.
