SARDINIA CLIMATE

Immersed in the Mediterranean, Sardinia cannot but benefit from all the positive aspects that this sea gives to the lands it laps. Winters on the coasts are mild and summers are particularly warm and windy, with almost no rainfall.
Inland, the mountainous heart of the island, the temperature is cooler and in winter you can easily find snow-capped peaks.

THE FOUR LOCATIONS

CAGLIARI

The island's capital, this city stretches along the southern coast and offers a stay full of various activities. For more than 5 km stretches the pale sandy beach of Poetto, which in the evening enlivens its air with the music of the numerous kiosks scattered along the promenade. If you love history and art, Cagliari will be proud to show you all its past, gathered in museums, theatres and collections open to the public.

ALGHERO

Probably one of the most evocative localities in Sardinia, Alghero is a canvas painted in just two colours: the green, of its astonishing parks, and the blue, of a sea that offers the relaxation of well-equipped beaches and the restrained fun of water sports. On summer nights, the historic centre comes alive with concerts and all the clubs stay open from morning until late at night.

OLBIA

Strategically located, it guarantees you the best that a holiday can offer: the beaches of Bados, Costa Romantica, Marinella and Pittulongu, renowned for their crystal-clear waters and fine sand, are in perfect balance with the liveliness of nearby Porto Cervo and its glamorous evenings, and with the sporting activities such as trekking and hiking that the various neighbouring promontories allow.

SAN TEODORO

One of the most loved by tourists who choose Sardinia for their holidays. It is an alternation of white beaches of soft sand, breathtaking cliffs and lagoons, still home to the enchanting pink flamingo. In the evening, it is relaxing to stroll through the town centre, its streets full of cafés and the craft market, which colours the atmosphere.
