About Sardinia

Sardinia’s beaches are spectacular: the sand is snow white and the water is a shade of aqua usually reserved for the tropics, but there’s a lot to be said for the wild interior as well. Lush forests open out onto incredible limestone bays or fields of sheep, or prehistoric ruins. And it’s not only the landscape which is special and surprising, the rich, colourful culture and traditional flavours and design have been shaped by visitors but have retained their individuality. It’s a bit like a tiny country... So when you start talking about the best places to stay on Sardinia there’s as much choice as you might expect from a mini-country.

If you're here for the gorgeous beaches then we've plenty of lovely hotels and villas to recommend, but if your appetite is whetted to see a bit more of the island's treasures then some of the best places to stay on Sardinia are the inland towns.

You do have to choose your town wisely though, some are picturesque, with architecture borrowed from the island's Catalan heritage, and some are less so. But you'll be rewarded, because as well as being Sardinia's cultural centres, the most charming towns are also the island's capitals of cuisine.

  • Olbia is a proper port town,
  • Caligari has the hilltop citadel, cathedral, museums, palaces and a university, all surrounded by a sturdy fortress wall, built by the Pisans.
  • Bosa is crowned by a medieval castle, and known for its pastel houses and ochre, medieval buildings, around an ancient, cobbled-heart.
  • Iglesias was a Spanish town, and still has an Iberian feel to it. It's got plenty of life and atmosphere,
  • and Oristano, with its elegant piazzas and buildings, looks like a town with wealth. Definitely the place to be if you want to do some boutique shopping.
  • If you want beach-y perfection, but with a less tourist-y feel, then one of the best places to stay on Sardinia is the Golfo di Orosei. These 20 miles of cliffs, dotted with lovely beaches and grottos, are a bit more of a challenge to access from the land because there's a large nature reserve behind them. Sailors, fishermen and luxury yachters of the highest calibre enjoy this paradise, and these days with a bit of planning so can you.
  • Arzachena manages to offer the best of all worlds, it’s a charming rural village just a few kms from the Costa Smerelda.

If you’re into horse riding this is a great place for it, it’s also great for divers - there are shipwrecks to explore, there are opportunities to go sailing and sea kayaking, and of course to hike and bike.

Just off Sardinia's south west coast are the two islands of Sant'Antioco and San Pietro, which are probably the best places to stay on Sardinia if you're searching for the least developed 'authentic' Sardinian experience.

What not to Miss

  • The sea off the coves around Golfo di Orosei;
  • the thousands of Bronze age towers, tombs and settlements - you won’t be able to avoid them but take some time over them;
  • the local wines, breads and cheeses;
  • visit the islands, there aren’t many of them but the Asinara National Park and the Maddalena archipelago are unlike anywhere else on the planet;
  • and see if you can time your visit to coincide with one of the colourful local festivals.

Just don't forget that if you want to guarantee a room in one of the best places to stay in Sardinia over the peak summer period, you'll have to be organised and book well ahead. It's not just the Italians who like to summer here!

The Best Places to Stay on Sardinia

For Foodies

Sardina's wine is well known for its strength and bold flavours, and their local liqueur, filu e ferru, is even more potent. The flavours of the food tend to be bold enough to keep up, with lots of hearty pastas dusted with pungent local cheeses.

  • The Hotel Su Gologone is an old, but working, Sardinian estate with its own olive grove and vineyards, so much of the excellent cuisine served here is sourced direct from the grounds. They also offer a wide selection of classes and hotel run activities - heavy on the artistic as well as foodie.
  • The Hotel Villa Las Tronas offers a more traditional five star experience. On a promenade jutting out into the sea, this hotel has spectacular 360 degree views and an excellent seafood restaurant.

For Historic Sardinia

Caligari, Bosa, Iglesias and Oristano are some of Sardinia's prettiest towns.

  • Hotel Miramare in Caligari, is right in the heart of the city, opposite the harbour, with beautiful views out to sea. Inside the style is Belle Epoque fancy, with an excellent breakfast.
  • For a fabulous guesthouse experience, book the Hotel Lucrezia, which is located between Oristano and Bosa. The gardens are lovely, and inside it's all whitewashed walls, cast iron beds and charming, homely paintings and tapestries. And its a short distance from an excellent beach, so a good spot for families.
  • The Hotel Villa Las Tronas is just along the coast from Bosa, on a promenade which juts into the sea. This hotel has plenty of traditional charm. Suites have their own private decks and hot tubs, so this is also one of the best places to stay on Sardinia for honeymooners.
  • If you're looking for traditional chic, try Albergo Diffuso Mannois in Orosei's Old Town. The decor is simple creams and whites, to make the most of this charming building's original features. There are 18 rooms starting from less than £70 a night.
  • The Antica Dimore Del Gruccione in medieval Santo Lussurgiu, is a 12 room boutique hotel with rooms and apartments dotted throughout town. Though all different, the rooms have beautiful original features and an antique feel.

For a Beach Break

The Costa Smeralda hosts Sardinia's well known strip of beach resorts. The water here is transparent and bright blue, the sand is pale and the sunshine's abundant. It's busy though.

  • The Hotel El Faro is a fabulous seaside hotel on a peninsula north of Alghero. With 88 rooms and suites - some with incredible sea views, this is a large hotel, so there are plenty of activities on offer and the facilities are good. Highlights are the Thalasso Spa and excellent Mediterranean restaurant.
  • For your own private beach try the Hotel Sporting, which is just moments from Porto Rotondo’s harbour. There are 47 rooms, with vaulted ceilings and private balconies with sea views, plus a gourmet restaurant, tennis courts, a pool and gym.
  • The Nascar Hotel is a good option if you're travelling with your family or a group and you want to stay somewhere comfy by the beach. The rooms are a generous size, some with private terraces, and the restaurant serves an excellent local menu. Right at the foot of the spectacular "Wild Blue" walking trail, this is also a great choice for hikers.

For a Rural Retreat

  • The Hotel Su Gologone has been converted from a Sardinian estate and is surrounded by vineyards, olive trees and bougainvilleas, and serves up their own produce in the restaurant. You're up from the beach, but there's a pool fed from a local spring and the views are incredible.
  • The Adiola Country Resort is a secluded resort overlooking Lake Liscia. There are 18 brightly coloured villas decorated in traditional, Sardinian style, and you’re surrounded by a thousand year old olive grove.
  • The Lanthia Resort is set within a vast, peaceful garden with a private pool, but you’re also just a few minutes from your own private beach. The 28 rooms are spread amongst a collection of stone villas, with chic, modern decor.

For Luxury Lovers

  • Hotel Relais Villa del Golfo & Spa offers private views over the Bay of Cannigione and a private yacht at your disposal if you want to explore the coastline.
  • Bajaloglia is located right on the cliffs overlooking the Gulf of Asinara, close to the medieval town of Castelsardo. There are 15 rooms, suites and cottages - all with all the mod. cons. and some with private balconies too. The restaurant is traditionally Sardinian.

For Families

  • Tenuta Pilastru was a farmhouse and is now a resort. It has 32 chic rooms and a fantastic pool and spa facilities. You’re not far from the beach and rooms start from less than £70 per night.
  • The 27 room Spartivento Hotel is a luxurious, rural resort in the hills of Southern Sardinia overlooking the beaches at Chia and the Mediterranean. The decor is simple but elegant and the restaurant is traditionally Sardinian. You’re surrounded by terrain to explore.
  • Ollastu is a large complex encompassing beautiful, natural scenery, 54 rooms and a private beach. There are two dining rooms, an indoor and outdoor bar, landscaped gardens and a pool. There’s also plenty of actives laid on for the kids.

Best B&BS

  • Antica Locanda Lunetta is an adorable, but rustic, B&B in the old town of Mandas in Sardinia’s rural interior. There are just three rooms, with lovely original beans and stonework, and some loverly furnishings.
  • Close by is Domu Antiga, another great rustic B&B which also has three charming rooms. Here the rooms are better set up for families, and the views of the countryside are lovely.
  • The Albero Capovolto is a quiet, five room B&B in Golf Aranci. There’s a pool with an outdoor seating area and a very relaxed atmosphere. Great for groups.

For Great Value

  • With just ten rooms the Hotel Villa Pimpina is a homely place to rest your head in the charming fishing village of Carloforte. Rooms have tiled floors and sea views, some have balconies too, and there’s a small garden where you can have breakfast or sundowners. Rooms start from around £60 per night.
  • The Hotel Panorama is right by the harbour in Olbia and very easy to get to. Modern and comfortable, with a gym, pool and everything you'd expect from a hotel which also caters for business guests, this is also a family friendly place with rooms starting from around £65 per night.
  • For around £70 per night you can stay at Ca La Somara, which was once stables, but is now a chic collection of villas surround by well kept gardens. The 12 rooms are rustic, with lovely hand painted tiles and traditional Sardinian touches.

Travel Information

  • Sardinia has three airports, Alghero Airport, which is ten kilometres northwest of Alghero, Olbia Airport, which is about four kilometres from the centre of Olbia on the Costa Smeralda, and Cagliari Airport, which is seven kilometres from Cagliari, Sardinia’s largest city. Cagliari’s port is right in front of the old town so you can easily arrive by sea. Olbia also has a ship and ferry terminal just a short bus or taxi ride from the centre of town, and if you’re cruising or sailing in to Alghero you’ll dock at Porto Torres, an industrial centre about 22 kilometres north of town.
  • If you want to hire a car - which we highly recommend in Sardinia - we advise you to visit our online partner, Rentalcars.
  • Sardinia’s Mediterranean climate means long, warm summers and short, mild winters, with most of the rain sandwiched between. It is known for being windy. And in some regions humid. in fact, for a small island, Sardinia has a number of microclimates. But generally speaking most of Sardinia is a pleasant destination almost year round. From the start of spring it starts to get pretty sunny, with between six and nine hours of sunshine a day, thought of course summer is the most popular time to visit, when the water is warm, and temperatures are in the mid-twenties. The temperature averages 18°C in October, so if you prefer a quieter holiday then September/ October is a good time to visit.
