Sardinia Holidays - breathtaking scenery

Sardinia is a beautiful island in Southern Italy, the second largest in the Mediterranean Sea. Apparently, it has the highest number of centenarians in the world! Sardinia holidays to Villasimius are the ideal place for solo travel if you are looking for total relaxation, love beautiful beaches, breathtaking landscapes and exquisite food.

There are no motorways in Sardinia, but rather dual carriageways that wind through unspoilt countryside, providing you with jaw dropping views of imposing mountains and various shades of sparkling blue sea.

When you take a break from one of the many beaches, head into town. During peak season, of an evening, the main street in the town becomes pedestrianised. Stalls are set up for additional shopping and live music plays in a nearby square. You will also find a nearby marina with a selection of restaurants and shops to book excursions.

Marina is lovely to wander around while solo in Villasimius or stock up on food at the minimarket there if you are self-catering

    The fort is believed to date back to as early as the 14th Century and was restored in the late 1960s. It is open to the public at certain times of the day Tues-Sun for a small charge.
