I stayed 1 week in Mario's apartment Cavour in the centre of Alghero. A simple and clean 2-rooms-flat in good shape right in the heart of the old town. And the price is good!!! Air conditioning is available and all is clean and new. No problems for water or services, I found everything ok so I don´t understand a previous report about this flat on Tripadvisor.
It takes 15 minutes to come to the Lido beach but the sea is 40 meters close and sometimes I've gone to the small beach of Torre de San Jacomo just close to this apt. – of course the sea was to cold in this early time of the year. Nevertheless: all the sightseeing points of the historical centre are near around: the cathedral, the city-walls and the main places.
the apt. is in a touristic place, so sourrounded by restaurants and pubs. This may be nice or simply noisy during the weekend nights; but in the morning there's a great silence until late! And a close fantastic bar where to wake up with a strong italian coffee in face to the sea and the sun!
For a young couple (and myself) it's a real good spot.
It isn´t easy to go there by car, because the access to the old town is only permitted to residents. So it would be better if you let your car out of the city walls, to avoid some problem with the local police.
However streets are narrows and a car may have some problem for to find a parking place or simply to surpass a parked car. But it takes only 5 minutes to the next bus-stop at Porta Terra.
And Mario – a very gentle sardinian man – picks you up and drops you off to the Alghero airport if you need it.
I `ll gonna go there again.
By the way: Thx to Tripadvisor – You do a good job!
