Beat the British weather and escape to the south for a week in Sardinia with an amazing Alghero winter break and stay by the beach near this gorgeous medieval city by the sea.
9 Night Alghero Winter Break Including 4* Hotel And Flights
I have found a deal to the Italian island of Sardinia for a great Alghero winter break, letting you explore this medieval gem with it’s honey-coloured stone defences, gothic palazzo and impressive churches and cathedrals… not to mention it’s beaches and easy access to the Riviera del Corallo.
Flights are from London Stansted to Alghero, although transfers aren’t included – check your options here or consider renting a car, as you’ve got 9 days to explore the island. Try looking on CarRentals.co.uk for rental bargains.
The Hotel Calabona is just a short way out of the city, in a peaceful setting overlooking the sea – the hotel is actually by a small beach, which nestles in a bay of sand and rock, and there’s also a pool. This hotel scores 4/5 on TripAdvisor, and is the perfect base for an Alghero winter break.
Alghero itself is one of Sardinia’s most beautiful and best preserved medieval cities, with a still bustling historic centre filled with narrow cobbled streets, medieval palaces and churches and piazzas full of pretty little cafes and restaurants. There’s a marina full of yachts too, and a long sandy beach that curves up towards the stunning Riviera del Corallo, one of Italy’s best pieces of coastline that definitely warrants exploring. The city has a fascinating Catalan past, which can be seen in it’s centro storico with it’s Iberian atmosphere and street signs written in both medieval Catalan and Italian. An Alghero winter break offers a great escape filled with culture, history and stunning coastlines. Andiamo!
