Vacation rentals in Sardinia

Vacation rentals and apartments on the south coast of Sardinia

In Sardinia you can combine a beach holiday with a city trip in a vacation rental on the south coast. Here lies the capital Cagliari in the province of the same name. Apartments for two to three persons can be found directly in the city. Somewhat outside are spacious fincas with private pools that cannot be seen from the outside. Up to four bedrooms and four separate bathrooms offer enough space for a family with several children.

Comfortable apartments in the centre of the island

Almost in the centre of the island you live in a holiday apartment in the city of Nuoro. The capital of the province of the same name lies on a 550 meter high hill in the Ortobene mountains and offers an impressive view over the surroundings. Cosy apartments in typical mediterranean country houses are located a little away from the city in the green hinterland. The comfortable apartments offer enough space for two to three people. The facilities usually include an inner courtyard, a roof terrace, swimming pool and several bathrooms.

Mediterranean Fincas on the Emerald Coast

The Costa Smeralda, the emerald coast close to the city of Olbia, is a popular destination for bathing holidays in the north of Sardinia. A vacation rental with enough space for the whole family can be found close to the beach. The typical Sardinian Finca usually has its own garden, a covered terrace and a balcony. In clear weather, the view to the east extends to the islands of the La Maddalena archipelago. Terracotta and whitewashed fincas with thick stone walls keep the heat away - ideal for lunchtime siesta.

Location and orientation

The second largest island in the Mediterranean Sea

The island of Sardinia is about 200 kilometres from the west coast of Italy. It is the second largest island in the Mediterranean after Sicily. Only the 12 kilometre wide road from Bonifacio separates Sardinia from the French island of Corsica in the north, to Tunisia in the south it is about 184 kilometres. Over 1.6 million inhabitants live on the island, which is also an autonomous region of Italy. The capital Cagliari is located on the south coast.

Rugged coastline and mountainous inland

Rugged cliffs line the more than 1,800 kilometre long coast. Several smaller island groups are located in front of the main island both in the east and in the west. Among the best known are the Maddalena Islands in the northeast. In the east of the main island rises the Gennargentu mountains with Sardinia's highest point, the 1,834 meter high mountain La Marmora. The south is known for its high deposits of precious metals and iron.

Sardinia for beach holidaymakers

The beaches of Sardinia are divided into different sections: The Costa Smeralda is characterised by bays surrounded by granite rocks. Particularly long and wide beaches lie on the south coast around the capital Cagliari as well as on the east coast near Bari Sardo or in the Gulf of Orosei. Many sandy beaches can only be reached by boat. Those who want to swim on the west coast take a vacation rental on the Costa Verde, the green coast.

Sardinia for hikers

The Sardinian landscape is very varied despite the small area of the island. Volcanic mountain ranges, limestone cliffs, slate and granite mountains present hikers and mountaineers with exciting challenges. Mountain hikers climb Punta La Marmora, the highest peak in Sardinia. On the plateaus called Giare, even inexperienced hikers are well on their way.

Sardinia for sailors

Sailors can moor at about 40 marinas in Sardinia. These include the luxurious marinas on the Costa Smeralda, but there are also numerous smaller ports. Sailing trips can be made across the Tyrrhenian Sea between Sardinia, Corsica and Sicily or the open Mar di Sardegna in the west. Another boat trip leads around the Maddalena archipelago in the northeast.

Top 5 travel tips

1. In the capital Cagliari

With over 150,000 inhabitants, Cagliari is not only the capital but also the largest city in Sardinia. A holiday apartment in the old town called Castello offers an excellent view over the Gulf of Cagliari. The most important monument is the Cathedral of Santa Maria di Castello, from the 13th century, which was rebuilt inside in baroque style.

2. The Grotta del Blue Marino

One of the most impressive caves in Sardinia is the Grotta del Blue Marino at the foot of the Supramonte Mountains in the Gulf of Orosei. The grotto can only be reached by boat. The southwestern part consists of an active water cave with underground rivers. Stalactites and stalagmites appear in a changing play of colours. Visitors will also discover Neolithic rock carvings.

3rd Gola Su Gorropu: One of the deepest canyons in Europe

Supramonte is also home to one of the deepest gorges in Europe: Gola Su Gorropu forms a canyon one and a half kilometres long. The rock walls reach up to 400 meters into the depth. The small stream at the bottom seems rather inconspicuous, and yet over the millennia it has created this natural spectacle.

4. The red rock of Arbatax

Arbatax is located in the province of Nuoro on the east coast of Sardinia. In front of the coast, directly at the harbour entrance, a blood-red, flaming rock rises out of the sea. The volcanic rock porphyry gives the red rock of Arbatax its impressive colour, which makes it a popular photo motif.

5. Sardinian cheeses - the national speciality

In Sardinia, good cheese is as much a part of the meal as a good wine. Pecorino hard cheese, for example, comes from the island. The cheese goes well with almost all dishes, and can also be served solo with a piece of Pane Carasau, an extremely thin, crispy flatbread. Add a bottle of Sardinian wine and you can enjoy a real Sardinian snack in your holiday home.
