A holiday home in Sardinia, a paradisiac beach setting

Between Italy and Africa, 200 km off the coast of Lazio, lies the island of Sardinia, surrounded by the warm waters of the Mediterranean sea, just a few kilometers from the French island of Corsica. It is mostly known for its beaches and sunny coast, yet a holiday in Sardinia is much more than that. You can surely enjoy the white sandy beaches and the numerous water sports opportunities like sailing, kayaking, snorkeling, diving and others, but there are many facets to be discovered setting off from a holiday home in Sardinia. The Nuraghe of Barumini is definitely an edifice that is worth seeing a UNESCO World Heritage Site, as well as Maddalena Archipelago and the Alghero and Bosa cities, silent witnesses of the place's history, about 50 kilometers of each other.

Relax on the Sradinian beaches
You don't have to be a beach person to fall in love with the white sand beaches, the cerulian sea and the forever smiling sun during a holiday in Sardinia. It's certainly known that once you get here, you'll just never want to leave and the enthusiasm of life at the beach will be overwhelming you in no time. If you go to Punta Is Molentis, Villasimius, you'll find yourself charmed by the many shades of the blue water and a dreamy white sand beach on one side, and granite rocks that dip into a dark blue sea on the other. All this is sheltered by a giant hill, and if you want to avoid the herds of tourists, this is the perfect place to be. If you want more popularity, head over to Su Giudeu beach looking out to the bay of Chia, one of the most famous beaches in the Mediterranean, or the Porto Giunco beach in the same area, protected by a pine forest. There is also La Pelosa beach, on the opposite side of the island, towards the North side of it, where the sand is extraordinarily white and the water is of an exotic turquoise.

And then there's also history and culture
As previosuly mentiones, Sardinia is not all about the sand and beach (though the display of it is absolutely magical). A holiday home in Sardinia will set you in the middle of cultural and historical attractions as well. The town of Castelsardo for example is a charming medieval place where the Doria Castle, its landmark, dominates the surroundings offering an exquisite view over the gulf of Asinara. Carloforte is another quaint town on the south western-coast of the island, small and quiet, with narrow streets and pretty beaches, while the Neptune caves in Alghero can be the "frosting on the cake" as they say for a family holiday in Sardinia, with the astonishing views over the sea and the coast. Set sail on a new adventure this year and fall in love with this unique Italian island.

Authentic experience of life on an island, a holiday park in Sardinia

One may wonder what is a holiday in Sardinia all about? As in, most people go here for a nice relaxing vacation at the beach, to lay on the white sandy beaches and enjoy the turquoise waters. And they are not at all wrong! Sardinia is a fabulous island, with great water sports and beach opportunities, but also with a wide array of cultural and historical attractions, like castles and fortresses and quaint little cities that perfectly preserved the medieval charm of the place. The Barbagia region is a beautiful and remote mountainous area where you can go on hiking and taking long walks that reward you with serene views. A holiday park in Sardinia sets you on an island with an interesting mix of influences in its culture, food, wine, architecture.

Sardinian towns
Cagliari is Sardinia's biggest town, set on the south coast of the island, since the days of Rome. The Castello district here on top of a hill will mystify you with astonishing views over the port, and the two Pisan towers that watch over the city walls are silent witnesses of the island's tumultuous history. There's also the old city of Oristano, with the lagoons and canals all around it. Tharros prides itself with the Punic and Roman digs, and the medieval town of Bosa is highly praised for its authentic atmosphere and its old castle and cathedral, definitely worth a visit during your family holiday in Sardinia.

Sardinian cuisine is a must try
The tumultuous history of the island also left a mark on its cuisine so a holiday in Sardinia is also about the heart rustic food to be found here like wild boar, spit-roasted pig with myrtle and lamb. The food is complimented with aubergines, artichokes, couscous and nougat and while here you should also not miss out on the delicious bread that is a characteristic of the island as well as salty percorino sardo cheese. Enjoy it with a glass of wine on the terrace of a holiday park in Sardinia, together with loved ones, to make for an evening to remember. The seafood here is also great, you are on an island after all, so a seafood dish with sea urchins, or octopus, dogfish and even caviar in bottarga (dried and salted mullet eggs with celery) just have to land on your plate before you leave. Sardinia is more than a beach holiday destination, and this you have to see for yourself!
