Searching for the best Sardinia Holidays?
On the island of Sardinia holidays are available to match a wide variety of budgets and tastes, whether they be inexpensive city breaks or luxury beach resorts.
Cagliari, Sardinia's largest city, is notable for its white limestone buildings, baroque and art nouveau architecture, as well as dramatic hilly landscapes. It is also famed in Italy for its fresh and enticing seafood, best enjoyed with a glass of Sardinia's local white wine, Vermintino. Not to be missed is the city's Castello neighbourhood, a part of town built on the cliff edges overlooking the sea. Its winding, cobbled streets date from the medieval era, and as well as the castle and archaeological museum, the area also hosts a range of local craft workshops and art galleries.
Recommended hotels in Cagliari include the four-star Sardegna Hotel, with double rooms priced from £43. For the more budget-conscious, the Rosso e Nero Bed and Breakfast offers accomodation from only £21.
Sardinia has long been famed as a welcoming family destination, and offers a wide variety of resort hotels for those with children.
The world famous Forte Village Resort is situated right on the beach, and includes leisure activities such as a Kid City, Disney Corner and even a branch of the Chelsea Soccer School. The resort is made up of 8 different hotels each with their own price range and tailored theme, from golf retreats to fine dining. Family rates for 7 nights half-board start at £2956 for 2 adults and 2 children, including flights from Heathrow.
Sardinia has many options for visitors hoping for a more environmentally friendly vacation, or for those who simply wish to get in touch with nature. The Coop Enis Hotel, set within a mature oak forest in the northern part of the island, has a range of eco activities for guests including country walks, cave exploration and tours of spectacular nearby canyons. Rooms with a terrace overlooking the mountains cost from as little as £33 a night per person.
With a rugged coastline and landscape, Sardinia is ideal for those wanting to try out the more active Sardinia Holidays. Coast to Coast cycling tours ran by Saddle Skedaddle and starting in Montevecchio are available from £915 and last 9 days.
