Having arrived we honestly felt that this was the best location in the whole of Alghero.
It is literally in the centre of the old town (a very charming, safe town), close to shops, restaurants and bars. It is about a 2min walk to the stunning marina and about 10mins to the Lido beach. The studio is however, close to an irish pub, which can be noisy until the early hours. We didn't mind however as we easily fall asleep; especially after such tiring days filled with exploring! On an aside, the irish pub was fab with a great atmosphere every time we were there!
We didn't like the touristy beaches - especially Lido. They were very dirty and often smelled quite bad. We preferred the stunning Maria Pia beach, which the further you walk down the quieter it is and once we rented a car, we drove towards Neptune's cave and found an amazing beach! So the lesson is, the further away you drive from alghero the cleaner and stunning beaches you will find.
The studio was really well... more
