There is a tasteful shower room fully tiled in marble and a seperate utility room with a washing machine,iron and board.This apartment is frequently used by the owners and is therefore furnished to a higher standard than is normal for holiday accommodation. There are electric radiators in case of chilly days in winter. We love Alghero's old town with everything on your doorstep. Looking out of the window and watching the world go by is great entertainment. There's no better place to be to experience the real Italy. You can walk around the old town walls by the sea, eating an ice-cream watching the sunset over Capo Caccia or sit at a bar having morning coffee and a cake whilst people watching and looking out at the sea. The beaches are walking distance along a beautiful promenade or you can cycle on the purpose built cycle lane. There's no need for a car but if you did want to travel further afield, the bus station is nearby.
