Set within leafy gardens in a residential complex just a short walk from the beach in the Capo Coda Cavllo area is laid-back Aligusta. The simple yet attractive villa is perfect for couples and smaller families with two bedrooms and open-plan living on offer. It's also in a fantastic location for exploring white-sand beaches and the crystal-clear sea.
This marine protected area features tucked-away coves and stunning cliffs that overlook sandy stretches. Hiking along ancient trails, water sports and boat trips are just some of the ways to enjoy and explore this paradise land.
Aligusta's layout is perfect for spending quality time with loved ones. The open-plan living/dining room with kitchen is bright and contemporary, with doors leading straight into the garden. Get together and chat while relaxing on the sofa, cooking meals and moving between the indoor and outdoor dining spaces.
Both the double bedroom and the second bedroom with twin beds are light and spacious, with direct access into the garden. Start every day with the scent of typical Mediterranean plants and flowers and a morning coffee on the terrace.
Elsewhere in the lawned gardens are seats and loungers for unwinding and soaking up the tranquil atmosphere, with a covered terrace for al fresco meals. There's also a lovely covered terrace with outdoor sofas to enjoy pre-dinner drinks.
You're spoilt for choice when it comes to beaches during a stay at Aligusta. An idyllic beach is practically on the doorstep, with several more just a short drive away. And the charming town of San Teodoro with its beaches, water sports and nightlife is less than 20 minutes away by car.
Take boat trips out to the islands of Tavolara and Molara for experiences in themselves before even reaching the paradise isles. And enjoy longer days out to places such as historic Olbia and the glamorous seaside resort of Porto Cervo.
Aligusta's position within a complex on Capo Coda Cavallo means it has a lovely, family-friendly feel and is close to useful amenities. A beach bar and restaurant are both within a five-minute walk, with an even greater choice a short drive away.
The nearest beach is easy to stroll down to. Here you'll find immaculate sand and the calm waters of the crystal-clear sea. A salt water pond lies just behind the beach and is home to an array of birds; so keen bird watchers will enjoy this stretch. Other beaches within a 10-minute drive include Spiaggia di Salinedda and Spiaggia di Lastra Ruia.
Even more idyllic stretches can be enjoyed in the town of San Teodoro (12km). Try water sports such as snorkelling and kitesurfing and venture into town for a dose of history. The Museo delle Civiltà del Mare has a fascinating collection of archaeological items, including ceramics and items recovered from merchant ships.
There are ancient hiking trails to follow all over the Capo Coda Cavallo area. And to explore the area by sea, head out on a boat trip to the islands of Tavolara and Molara.
For a longer day out, drive around 30 minutes inland to the city of Olbia (26km). Its old town is a maze of narrow streets, with squares and plenty of historic buildings and architecture to take in. Some of the highlights include the old city wall, the archaeological museum and the 11th-century Basilica of San Simplicio. When it's time to take a break from sightseeing, relax with some boutique browsing and a drink in one of the many wine bars.
