Sardinia is a great holiday destination, and you can find some top deals with lastminute.com. The Italian island is located not too far from Corsica and Sicily, so it enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate. The capital city of Cagliari has some great Sardinian hotels, not to mention the coastal resorts all over the island, with stunning sea views.
Beaches, buildings and bruschetta
The island is seasonal, and in the summer time there few places better to catch some sunshine. The Costa Smeralda is a popular destination with tourists, and is located to the North of the island. The sparkling blue waters here are almost always accompanied with beach loungers and parasols to help you relax on your holiday. You’ll see white boats lining the harbours and beaches, and even be able to book a boat tour if you want to venture further out into the waves.
Off the south coast of the island you’ll find Cape Carbonara. Named for its famous sauce, the island is a beautiful spot, with picturesque beaches and rocky outcrops, not to mention a deep green centre full of wildlife and forest to explore.
Once you become accustomed to the gorgeous Mediterranean Sea around the island, why not book into one of the local beach hotels. The Hotel La Villa del Re on the South East Coast is a great place to lay your head in the evenings, and venture out of for day time activities.
Food and drink
Although it’s an island, the people of Sardinia come from a proud history of shepherds rather than fishermen, so much of the food consists of roast meat and cheese. Dip into one of the many delightful restaurants and enjoy some of the local Antipasti, perfect for sharing with friends or family. You’ll also find a great range of cured meats available in local shops to nibble on throughout the day.
Most of the local restaurants will call themselves pizzerias, unsurprisingly in Italy. If you’re in the capital and want something a little different, then try The Major Preep. This cosy little pub is very central and serves some great cocktails as well as tasty food.
Many of the hotels in the area put on a great spread, so don’t feel you have to venture too far out to find food. There’s an emphasis on family dining, and food as an experience in Sardinia, as with much of Italy, so meal times can be a real holiday highlight.
