Visiting the lovely area around Sant’Anna Arresi can be a very rewarding excursion for the whole family. Take a stroll through the graceful town, spend a relaxing afternoon at Porto Pino beach with the white dunes in the back, visit the caves of Is Zuddas or observe the wildlife by the lagoon of Santa Caterina

From the Chia area, Sant’Anna Arresi can be reached in 45 minutes by car. A great way to see more of this surprising island.

What to do in SouthSardinia – Sailing – Sailing Tour along the Gulf of Teulada and Cala Zaffarano

The south coast of Sardinia is an almost untouched paradise. Take this day tour on a sailing boat and discover the area around Teulada with its wild nature, numerous cliffs, crystal clear sea and almost deserted white sandy beaches. Visit Cala Zaffarano that can only be reached by boat: a beach of fine and soft sand, protected from the wind by small sand dunes where junipers and sea lilies live in loneliness and harmony. On the shore, the erosion of coral, gave to the sea unique pink reflex.

The tour starts in the new marina of Teulada at 10:30. Lunch will be served aboard and you will return at 17:00. For reservations, contact:

What to do in SouthSardinia – Sailing – SAILING THE GULF OF CAGLIARI

Why not go for a sailing excursion to escape the heat of the beach? Feel the wind through your hair and on your skin!

The excursion starts in the port of Cagliari and the closest destination to sail to and visit is the promontory called “Sella del Diavolo”, a landmark which divides the city from the Poetto beach.

At anchor in Calamosca, Cala Fighera or Grotta dei Colombi you can enjoy the crystal clear sea for a swim, lunch or a relaxing break. The excursion will continue on the east coast, along the magnificent and about 8 km long Poetto beach. There is also the possibility to extend the tour to reach the beautiful beach of Mari Pintau (in Sardinian means painted sea).

Sailing excursions start daily from the Port of Cagliari. Price: 70€/person.

Thanks to the favorable climate, this year promises to be good and full of grapes and consequently of good wine. The harvest of the grapes takes place in September and is the culmination of a hard job: the last effort before testing the produce.

The wine-making tradition in Sardinia has an ancient past: it is thought to date back even to the Nuraghic period. Then, over the years, it has developed quite substantially, to the point that now the wine industry represents one of the most important sectors of Sardinia.

If you are staying in the Chia region, we recommend a visit to the beautiful and stylish winery Cantina Mesa. The estate comprises 70 hectares in the heart of Sulcis Iglesiente, near Sant’Anna Arresi, and is surrounded by the sea. Their production focuses on Carignano del Sulcis, Vermentino di Sardegna and Cannonau di Sardegna grape varieties, along with Chardonnay and Syrah. The winery proposes tastings and retail sales. A great opportunity to bring back home a taste of Sardinia!

If you happen to visit the fascinating city of Cagliari during your holidays, I strongly recommend a tour to the Town Hall of Cagliari. Besides the beauty of its architecture, inside you will find large decorated rooms with original and imposing furniture reminding of the past, as well as many art treasures such as works of Filippo Figari, John Marghinotti and Francesco Ciusa.

The building was built between 1899 and 1907 in Gothic Aragones style. You will notice the importance of floral designs which are typical of the Art Nouveau. Today the building is the municipal headquarters of the Sardinian capital.

The building is located on the port front (Via Roma) near the main station. Visits are possible each Saturday until the end of 2015, from 9:00 to 13:30 and from 14:00 – 19:00. Entrance is free and no appointment is needed. Definitely worth a visit!

What’s to do in Sardinia – Beach hopping

Originally shared by +Sardinia Holidays Villa Rental Teulada

Sardinia has hands down, some of the best beaches in the entire Mediterranean. In fact, some of the best in the world. Naming the top 10 beaches is not easy, so I’ll stick to the ones we have in south western Sardinia. You can pick up a different one every day – and still miss out on the others if you don’t stay more than 10 days.

Here is our Top 10 list and they’re all starting just 5 Km from Casa Teulada

TORRE CALASETTAThe island of Sant’Antioco is connected to Sardinia by a bridge, hence no need to take a boat or study time schedules. Once on the island, I recommend making a stop in the charming village of Calasetta, which has preserves its typical and unchanged traits of its Genoan and Tarbarchin (Tunesia) origins. Have a stroll in the picturesque narrow streets and admire the sea from one of the cafés on the harbour front.Calasetta is very famous for its distinctive tower, which was built around 1737. The tower was erected by the Savoy authorities to defend the channel between Sant’Antioco and the Island of San Pietro from the Saracen vessels.

The Calasetta area has numerous beaches of amazing beauty. The coast is steep and rocky to the West and low and sandy to the North-East. If you choose to spend the afternoon around Calasetta, you have the choice of several marvellous beaches such as “Spiaggiagrande”, “Porto Maggiore”, the “Salina” and “Sottotorre”.

The rocky rampart to the West is of unrivalled beauty stretching to a depth of up to 10 m and contributing to the creation of striking caves and stack formations of rocks. Have a look at one of the most beautiful places carved by the sea: the “Nido dei Passeri” (sparrows’ nest), a rocky formation which serves as a refuge to many local birds.

Influenced by the Liguria region, Sicily and North-Africa, the cuisine of Calasetta is a typical culture mix. If you decide to stay in Calasetta for lunch, try the superb dish offresh local tuna served with the “farinate di ceci” (a sort of savory pie made of chick peas) and fish soup.

From the Chia area, Sant’Antioco can be reached in approximately 1.5 hour drive. The scenic road will take you through the charming villages of Teulada, Sant’Anna Arresi and Sant’Antioco.


Cagliari2CCattedralediSantaMaria.jpgimgmax1024UNisola proposes a selection of 2-hours easy cultural itineraries to discover the most interesting neighbourhoods of Sardinia’s capital:

Castello district: the most symbolic district of Cagliari, with its wide and narrow streets, civil and religious architecture.
Stampace district: commercial suburb, with its streets animated by small artisan shops and traditional restaurants.
Marina district: commercial and multicultural neighbourhood with its narrow streets and full of traditional restaurants.
Villanova district: decorated streets with the flowering terraces and the small typical churches.

Have you made your choice? If not, why not join them all! Remember that Cagliari is less than one hour drive from your villa in the Chia area. Perfect for taking a break from the beach!

While in South Sardinia, I strongly recommend a visit to the well-kept town of Pula. Here you will find everything you need for your daily needs, including a selection of good restaurants, lively cafes and many shops which are open all year round. I particularly like to sit in one of the little cafes around […]
