Family holidays in Sardinia

Do you want to spend your next family holidays in Sardinia, in a beautiful location on the most beautiful sea in the world?

Would you like to spend your next family beach vacation without long trips but with beautiful Caribbean beaches?
Take a look at Villa Castànza, just 11 km from Olbia on the northeastern coast of Sardinia.

The well-kept villa with large Mediterranean garden and panoramic terrace on the island of Tavolara is easily accessible from the port and airport of Olbia as well as from the port of Golfo Aranci.

From Villa Castànza you can reach the beautiful beaches of the area on foot in a few minutes, or by car in 15-20 minutes you can reach world-famous seaside resorts and very characteristic villages where you can stroll and taste exquisite local products.
Indeed, Sardinia is an island with a thousand resources that offers an incredible variety of landscapes and beaches, entertainment options for all tastes, typical Sardinian restaurants and food and wine with wines and flavors that can only be found on the island.

Many ingredients to spend a fantastic and unforgettable holiday with the whole family

Many outdoor sports for young and old, SUP, windsurfing, snorkelling and diving, walks and excursions in the mountains when the weather permits, raft or ferry trips to the Capo Coda Cavallo marine reserve or wonderful relaxing days on the beach.

Some of the most beautiful beaches of the north-eastern coast are within walking distance of Villa Castànza, others 15 minutes by car, others still an hour by car, but they are definitely worth a visit.

To name a few: Le Tre Sorelle, the beach of Porto Istana, the Cinta di San Teodoro, the beaches and coves of Capo Coda Cavallo and just beyond the beautiful Gulf of Orosei.

Instead, to discover the oldest traditions, the most famous pastry shops, the most crowded summer events and authentic village life, it is worth visiting the ancient villages that are scattered throughout the island and will take you back in time.

Sardinians are very proud of their culture and traditions and still live them today with a lot of feeling and great sympathy.

Children will enjoy village life with lively squares, refreshing ice creams, summer festivals and fairs and events designed especially for them.

A holiday in Sardinia full of colours, scents and sweetness

As soon as you land in Sardinia you will be amazed by the marvelous colors of nature, characteristic both to the north and to the south is the typical Mediterranean maquis of the island: prickly pears with scarlet fruits, intense yellow broom, tamarisks, oleanders, bougainvillea and myrtle, a precious species for its berries, from which the traditional liqueur has been obtained for centuries.

Not only will the view enjoy so much beauty, but also the sense of smell: an intense perfume never felt before will welcome you when you visit Sardinia for the first time.

Thyme, rosemary, myrtle, helichrysum, verbena and all the wild flowers typical of Sardinia mix the delicate aromas of the coast with the crisp sea breeze.

It is an intoxicating perfume that you will never forget and that will accompany you throughout your vacation.

Taste also plays its part. When we speak of Sardinian food and wine, fish-based first courses or typical traditional dishes immediately come to mind, the pocetto or lamb and mutton in the oven.

But it is precisely in the production of desserts that the Sardinian soul and the family and social dimension rooted in the most ancient traditions are discovered.

There are many sweets linked to local products, very good and every family has its own recipe for papasini, formaggelle, sospiri, nougat, amaretti and ladyfingers, just to mention the most famous.

Furthermore, each festival is characterized by special sweets made with almonds, walnuts, raisins, orange or lemon peel, products that have always been found in Sardinia.

This is why a family holiday in Sardinia is an all-encompassing experience that even children can enjoy to the fullest.

And for those who love this wonderful island more, we recommend taking home carasau bread, a bottle of myrtle or a sigh wrapped in colored paper, as local tradition dictates.

Or ask for the recipe of a typical dessert from San Pantaleo, Burchidda, Olbia or Golfo Aranci to prolong the joy of summer and bring home a piece of Sardinia for the winter.
