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.
