Alghero in mid June

Hi!

We're looking at either going to Fuerteventura or Sardinia, the latter being my preference as love love love Italy, Amalfi, Rome etc and seems to tie the beaches of somewhere like Menorca with the Italian culture - perfect!

The other half would like an all inclusive so as not to worry about food/drink costs, I don't mind that or self catering/b&b - but should be 4* at least.

We're looking for somewhere within walking distance of the beach as won't be renting a car and nice places to go eat/drink in the evening too.

Alghero has been recommended, but I've also read Olbia etc are possible options too?

We're looking for something quite chilled, don't want packed beaches etc - Emerald coast comes up in searches too - but this is the very expensive side of the island?

Thanks!

Paul

Hi. Well yes, Alghero looks like it matches your ideal holiday place. The difference between Alghero and Olbia is that Alghero has a lively old town and beaches at walking distance, plenty of restaurants of good quaity etc. Olbia as a city doesn't have the same atmosphere although the area surrounding Olbia is very nice (but need a car). From Alghero you can do some excursions using local or private transport (La pelosa beach at 50 km, Neptunes caves, Sella & Mosca vineyard maybe by taxi, Maria Pia beach with local bus or on foot and Le Bombarde and Lazzaretto beach with local bus; also Ferrata del Cabirol is amazing! Then local bus to Bosa on the amazing streeton cliff Alghero-Bosa)...then the pleasure of a town with romantic spots and atmosphere...can be your good choice!

Sardinia has not much to spare with Italy (it's an autonomous region with its own culture, languages and history, deeply influenced by Spanish culture than by Italian one) and particularly Alghero is well known for its Catalan heritage, as Menorca!

In Sardinia you'll meet a lot of people who could get annoyed to be associated to Italians, so take care! :D
