Good news for the London – Sardinia connection. From 27th April 2015, British Airways will fly direct from London Gatwick to Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia, on the south coast of the island.
In just 2 hours 45 minutes, holiday makers can reach this beautiful Italian island, with its 1,000 miles of unspoilt coastline, finest white sandy beaches and turquoise, crystal clear sea.
Cagliari has all the charm of an Italian city with the beauty of its waterfront position. Built on several hills, with far-reaching views of the sea and mountains, the city also has a horseshoe bay with a 5 mile stretch of beach, and salt lakes with a wealth of birdlife, predominantly flamingos.
Visitors to the island can choose whether to stay in the town itself, hiring a car and exploring the south coast, and even further afield for the more adventurous, stay in a beach resort or hire a private villa on the coast.
From Cagliari, the renowned summer destinations of Villasimius and Costa Rei are just an hour’s drive southeast. Both the spectacular coastal road can be recommended, or the new dual carriageway, cutting through the mountains, a feat of engineering. The world famous holiday destination of Chia is equidistant travelling southwest.
This coast, home to the Forte Village, has a champion class 27 hole golf course, Is Molas, while surfers and watersports aficionados flock to the beaches in Chia. The marina of Teulada is the perfect place to moor boats, and a holiday spent exploring the coast, with its bays and islands, both on land and water, is a reason people fall in love with the island and come back time and time again.
Please browse our wide range of accommodation in Cagliari and the south coast, and feel free to contact our multilingual staff, who will be delighted to advise and share their knowledge of Sardinia with you. Feedback from our returning customers includes enthusiasm on the special combination of Italian culture and cuisine, Caribbean-beautiful beaches and spectacular scenery, with its own strong national identity and traditions.
