Cozy Christmas markets in Cagliari

From Piazza Yenne to Piazza del Carmine, from Corso Vittorio Emanuele to the historic shopping streets of Cagliari such as via Garibaldi, via Manno, the Marina district and even Stampace. It is here that the Christmas markets will take place.

81 small wooden houses, entertainment, flavors and aromas of the island, including those of Barbagia … And then the inevitable melodies that for the festive days will create the highly anticipated Christmas atmosphere, which will be accompanied by the music of the students of the Conservatory.

This is the perfect place if you are looking for Christmas trees, cribs, ornaments, accessories and handcrafts. You will also find the traditional fresh and dried flowers’ bouquets, poinsettias and seasonal greeting cards. Of course, Sardinian food and produces, from nougat to sebadas, cannot be missed here either. The sure place to find an original Christmas gift or souvenir to take home!

The Christmas markets start on Sunday 1 December and will remain open until 6 January, in Piazza Yenne and Piazza de Carmine only until 29 December.

South Sardinia is ideal for mountain and road biking. It offers several excursions and tours with different routes, slopes and levels of difficulty from easy to hard.

We recommend a ride along the coastal road between Pula and Teulada, following the old Roman road leading to the archaeological site of Bithia near Chia. No doubt you will encounter magnificent places along the way and enjoy stunning views on one of the most beautiful sea in the world. Feel totally connected with nature and enjoy unforgettable moments that will live forever in your heart!

If you can’t bring your own bike, you can rent one on site. Choose from a wide range of mountain, road or city bikes.

SUP stands for Stand Up Paddle surfing, which entails Standing on a surfboard and Paddling yourself around. Stand Up Paddle surfboards are much longer, wider and more buoyant than the usual surfboards, enabling you to comfortably balance on them and propel yourself with the paddle. The only condition is being a good swimmer, in case you fall in the water.

Aside from being another way of catching waves, SUP is also an increasingly popular way for athletes of all ages of keeping fit. In fact SUP is a very effective total body workout, which is also easy on the joints. And discovering stunning scenery from a SUP is much more fun than being in the gym …

With its 1800 kilometers of coastline, Sardinia is a paradise for those who love diving and snorkeling. In its seabed you can discover ship and aircraft wrecks as well as archaeological finds, which now seem like they always belonged to that world.

If you are staying in South West Sardinia we recommend the Chia Bay, a golden dream beach with stunning crystal clear waters and a rich underwater world. The high sandy dunes, the charming islet of Su Giudeu just in front and a beautiful beach… What else could you ask for? Welcome to paradise!

Extreme Destination Sardinia?

Well… even though the locals are very laid back, the last few years we have been seeing more and more kites – and kite-surfers and kite-surfer vans – along the South coast of Sardinia. Starting from the long open stretch of water around Capoterra just South of Cagliari direction Pula, to Chia (our home beach) and Porto Pino and further up along the West coast to the rough Costa Verde. I reckon it’s fair to say that Sardinia has arrived on the kite-surf-map!

And it get’s better than that 🙂 windy conditions are mostly in the off season when everything is half price and you have the beaches for yourself. So if you wanna “hang loose” reasonably close to home, with guaranteed good food, you should definitely head south to Sardinia.
