Italy: Sardinia

Undiscovered Sardinia Cycling

  • The unspoilt landscapes of Sardinia's south-western coast
  • Unrivalled coastal vistas, the Pan di Zucchero sea stacks, glittering emerald seas, pure white sand beaches
  • Colourful fishing villages, abundant vineyards, verdant olive groves, panoramic watch towers
  • Island hop to the beautiful isles of St Pietro and St Antioco
  • Discover the fascinating archaeological sites of Nora and St Antioco

Sardinia's south-west corner is brimming with immaculate beaches, untouched hidden coves and far reaching coastal views, and there's no better way to discover this beautiful region than by bike. This 7 night holiday takes you from the former mining village of Nebida along undulating country lanes and panoramic coastal roads, to the colourful town of Pula, a short distance from the Sardinian capital of Cagliari. Enroute you pass expanses of vineyards and olive groves and pedal along high rugged cliffs dotted with Spanish and Pisan watchtowers. You'll discover the stunning islands of St Pietro and St Antioco, with their bustling harbours selling the freshest of fish, and admire picture perfect white sand beaches lapped by those famous emerald waters.

Sardinia's position in the Mediterranean made it an enviable trading outpost and the island is an archaeologist's delight, boasting a historical treasure trove ranging from the unique yet mysterious Bronze Age nuraghi, to the Punic remains at St Antioco and the Roman settlement at Nora, where the ruins of its ancient temple panoramically gaze out to sea.

The food on Sardinia is as unique as it is, with simple dishes packed with intense flavours. Rich sheep cheeses served with the traditional, crisp shepherd's flat bread, saffron infused ravioli and to finish, cheese and lemon seadas drizzled in honey can be found everywhere, as well as, of course, freshly caught seafood, all washed down with the excellent local Carignano and Vermentino wines.

Your accommodation reflects the best of Sardinian hospitality, ranging from a family run agriturismo nestled amongst the vineyards to a 4* hotel just a stone's throw from Chia's long sandy beach.

Hotel Aquadulci, Chia

Swimming Pool IconHair dryer iconNEARBY:

The Hotel Aquadulci is perfectly positioned in Spartivento, just outside Chia, but within a stone's throw from the superb sandy beach of Su Giudeu.

The owners picked on the name of Aquadulci - meaning 'sweet water' - as this was the ancient name of the hotel's location. There is nothing ancient about this modern and well appointed hotel though, with excellent facilities including a swimming pool with hydromassage area, bar, reading room and restaurant.
