“Perfect place for short break”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

Il Girasole was the ideal base for our 4 day break to Cagliari. Location is wonderfully central - making you feel right in the heart of the city, buzz and all! Our triple room in the B&B was large, bright and clean. The breakfast was lovely and more than ample - with lots of homebaked goodies as well as more savoury staples. As others have tesitified, Luca, our host, was ever-helpful and attentive and really made the trip for us!

Ciao Marion, Lindsay and Hilary. Thanks a lot for your review. I still have good memories of the nice chats we had during breakfast.
I wish you all the best especially to Lindsay and her "coming" baby.
Ciao from Luca

We came for 4 days to Cagliari, in order to escape from the awful weather of Brussels. We had a great stay, and it's partly thanks to the lovely bed&breakfast where we stayed. A big bright room with a small terrace and a private bathroom, a HUGE breakfast (with everything you could possibly dream about: bread, home-made cake, home-made jam, ham, local cheese, juice, tea, coffee...better than most hostels/b&b where we stayed previously). Luca, the owner of the B&B is the nicest guy and very helpful. He will give you tips about where to go and what to eat (so important ;) ). And if you are like us, poor students/interns who cannot afford taking a luggage with Ryanair, but only a small bag, don't worry, Luca will provide everything you need (shampoo, towels, beach towels, hair dryer)...

We can only highly recommend this place, and Luca, remember that you have people to meet if one day you come to Brussels.

We found Il Girasole in the "Lonely Planet" guide book and it was a great place to stay. Luca is a fantastic host and the B & B could not have been more central to the city. My only critique would be that the walls were a bit thin and our fellow travellers decided to party it up one night...what can you do?

Room Tip: Rooms off the street are quieter, but then you don't get the cute balcony.

We arrived in Cagliari near the port and rang Luca, the manager. He assured us he knew where we were and came to pick us up and navigate us to the B&B, which is in a prime location near the port. Luca provided service over and above what would be expected. Apart from magnificent breakfasts from local produce and beautiful (strong) coffee, he also provided us with help to the hospital (which we unfortunately needed) and interpreting so we could cut short our holiday and come home (out of necessity). He assisted in returning the car to the hire car depot, and all in all was a perfect host. We thoroughly recommend this picturesque B&B to anyone going to Cagiari.

In september we did a cycling trip around Sardegna. Upon our arrival in Cagliari we stayed at B&B Il Girasole. Beside the beautiful accomodation and great breakfast, the owner Luca is a fantastic guy, he took his time to make a short planning for our trip and we could leave our bicycle boxes and some gear at his place during our travel. When we were leaving we couldn't find a taxi that was able to get us with our boxes to the airport, so Luca stashed all our gear into his little car and drove it to the bus stop, and we managed to get our flight on time! What a service!

I stayed at Il Girasole while travelling with a friend for a few days around Sardinia. Luca, the b&b owner, treated us like family. We ran into a number of unfortunate events such as getting lost while trying to navigate to the b&b, having our car towed, and even forgetting our boarding passes at another b&b in Villasimius while driving to the Cagliari airport, and Luca took time to help us with everything and always did so with a smile. The b&b itself is situated in a very convenient area of Cagliari - there are many restaurants and little shops nearby. Luca gave us plenty of restaurant/food recommendations and they were all excellent. The rooms are cutely decorated and Luca's breakfast is by far one of the best breakfasts I've ever had at a b&b (and all the foods are local products/homemade goodies). All in all, it was a wonderful stay. If I'm ever back in Cagliari, I wouldn't stay anywhere else but Il Girasole.

Room Tip: Most rooms are all very quiet - we stayed in the room closest to the front door and had no noise iss...

We were simply looking for a place to stay overnight while traveling around Sardinia, and had the fantastic fortune to discover this great b&b. Luca, the Innkeeper, is a super guy, and has a clear passion for making sure that his guests feel at home. He serves a very good coffee and a superb breakfast based on local genuine products. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and have already made plans to return. The house has great character, and has many interesting architectural details. Il Girasole is in a great location. Very close to the bus station and in the restaurant area in Cagliari. I have traveled quite extensively (over 40 countries) and this bed and breakfast is now one of my favoritei! We'll definitely be back
