Sardinia

Sardinia Villas, Apartments & Hotel Accommodation

Sardinia is one of the Italy’s most sought-after destinations, with its laid-back lifestyle and sensational natural landscapes. Most visitors are drawn to the coastline, with its stunning beaches, hidden coves, and rocky islands just waiting to be explored. Essential Italy has thoughtfully assembled the best choice of villas, apartments, and hotels in Sardinia. With your holiday accommodation taken care of in style, you are free to explore this unforgettable island to your heart’s content.

Towns and Cities of Sardinia

The Sardinian capital, Cagliari, lies in the south of the island. It’s a city rich in history and architecture, with everything from the ruins of early civilisations, to Pisan towers and art nouveau styling. Sardinia’s second city, Sassari, in the northwest, shows traces of its Spanish, Genoan and Aragonese heritage in elegant neoclassical architecture. Also well worth a visit is Olbia – a port city in the northeast of the island that serves as the gateway to the Costa Smeralda. Many smaller towns and cities are equally delightful, including Nuoro, with its fascinating museums and unique artistic heritage.

Sardinia Countryside

Sardinia is justly famous for its stunning beaches and crystal clear water. You’ll also find rocky coves and small islands with amazing rock formations, sculpted by wind and sea. Inland, the scenery can be rugged and mountainous but are well worth exploring for the dramatic peaks and gorges you’ll find. You can discover extraordinary ruins from the Nuragic civilization, which dates back to 1500 BC. Sardinia boasts the oldest building in Italy, dating back to pre-historic times.

Sardinia’s Beaches

As you holiday in Sardinia you will soon realise why the island’s beaches are considered some of the finest in the Mediterranean. Naturally many of Essential Italy’s most popular villas and apartments are conveniently situated near these long sandy beaches - or on tiny coves, making for a private beach of your own. The best-known stretch of coastline is the Costa Smeralda, which runs some 20 kilometres north from Olbia; in the summer months the jet-set head to Porto Cervo, the heart of the Costa Smeralda on their luxury yachts. You can celebrity-spot in the local bars and restaurants, if you like.

Further around the north coast, the archipelago of La Maddelena is a protected National Park, and the beaches here really are sublime. The only way to reach them is on a boat trip around the islands – pure heaven.

Food and Wine of Sardinia

Your holiday in Sardinia will give you the chance to sample one of the most delicious cuisines of the Mediterranean. Sardinian food can be hearty and rich – like suckling pig or wild boar roasted on a spit or stewed with beans and vegetables and thickened with bread. In the coastal resorts, fresh fish is everywhere; sea urchins are a speciality served with pasta. Cheese from Sardinia is exported all over the world, and the pecorino sardo is a must try taste. For braver souls there’s Casu Marzu, a soft cheese with live larvae. The classic Sardinian white wine is made with the Vermentino grape and is a crisp, dry style. The most popular red variety is Cannonau, common in the north of the island. If you are interested in local food and wine, every apartment, hotel room and villa comes with recommendations of particular favourites – and you’ll find our local staff ready with their own suggestions too.

Sardinia Secrets – Off the beaten track

With over 25 years’ experience organising unforgettable holidays in Sardinia our local know-how is considerable. Porto Rafael, overlooking the Arcipelago di la Maddalena, is one of our favourite destinations. Stay in one of our villas around this unique village to discover the perfect combination of style, relaxed atmosphere and life on the sea front. Instead of the glitz and glamour of nearby Porto Cervo, Porto Rafael is full of understated charm - life revolves around the small beaches, bars and sailing. Further west, the spectacular weathered rocks and sea of the Costa Serena are a must-see for every visitor, while those looking for more active holidays in Sardinia can try out the water sports on offer at Porto Pollo.

At Essential Italy, we concentrate on the destinations and types of accommodation people like most. That’s why the north of Sardinia is where you’ll find most of our apartments, hotels and villas – in any one of which you are likely to enjoy an unforgettable holiday in Sardinia.
