Holidays in Apartment in Sardegna

Holiday Apartment in Castelsardo

Our apartment is located right in the heart of Castelsardo village in via MAMELI 6 (Google Hearth photo ) and it is on the 2nd and top floor of a new construction. Our entrance is independent (exteriors photos ).
Castelsardo Main Square is just 100 mtrs away, which means we are practically at the beginning of the village ancient section, with all kinds of shops next door. The closest access to the sea is 50 mtrs away and so is a large public car park.
The flat of 35 sq mtrs ( see photo ) has a lounge with a cooking corner, double bedded sleeping room, bathroom with shower, and has a large private terrace of 10 sq mtrs which becomes, for most of the year, the real lounge with its lovely views upon the Castle and the sea.
The apartment is fully and newly furnished, with all cooking facilities, air condition/heating system, TV, radio-CD player, washing machine, hair dryer. On our private terrace there is an automatic awning and outdoors furniture for a full enjoyment of this place.
Although we have a sofa bed in our lounge, due to the size of the apartment, we believe it is perfect for 2 persons while a third would make it too tight. Therefore we regret max 2 persons are welcome. No pets, please. Smoking is allowed only on the terrace.

Castelsardo & dintorni

The Province of SASSARI is one of the widest of Italy since it is formed by all the Northern part of Sardinia, including ASINARA isle and the group of MADDALENA isles.The land varies from mountains to hills, from highlands to miles of untouched coastline of the most different looks. Within few minutes drive is it possible to change from steep granite slopes modelled by the wind to enchanting, small velvet beaches.

Along this coast, the famous EMERALD COAST ( Costa Smeralda ) centre of International jet set is located, with its well known areas such as GALLURA, SANTA TERESA, the gulf and ISLE of ASINARA and STINTINO village. Further West, beside the beautiful old town of ALGHERO, the natural caves of CAPO CACCIA and NETTUNO are worth a visit. Although less famous, the Sardinia inland offers untouched countryside with several villages rich of local crafts and cookery specialties.

The picturesque old town of Castelsardo is situated on a rocky hill 300 ft. above the sea and its fame is due to the ancient history which starts as far as the 1100, when a noble family of Genua – the DORIA – founded the first settlement with the name of Castelgenovese. The strategical position convinced the Doria to built a fortress – still today towering the town – around which, during the centuries the built up area developed.

Being such a valuable place, Castelsardo changed dominators a few times, until 1769, when its actual name was given by the King of Savoy and Sardinia.

OLD TOWN : it is still surrounded by walls, with narrow alleys crossing it in every direction all the way up to the fort, creating a unique atmosphere. Worth a visit the Casa Comunale of the 12th c., the Cathedral with its ceramic dome and bell tower, the Belvedere ( view point ) and the Tower Porta al Mare .

Splendid is the view towards Asinara island and Gallura coast line.
