VISIT SARDINIA IN THE SPRING

In the island Spring starts in March and ends middle of May, when early summer begins. The fragrant herbs and aromatic Mediterranean plants are in full bloom and dress entire regions into a sea of colors.

Spring is the ideal time if you feel comfortable with mild temperatures, love the simple life on the beach with a well-filled picnic basket. And if it rains … well, make yourself comfortable under the covered terrace of your holiday home and enjoy an excellent bottle of local red wine!

Our Villetta Chillout is close to the marvelous beaches of Chia and many more natural attractions. If this sounds good to you, visit our website or contact me!

DISCOVER SARDINIA IN AUTUMN …

… when mass tourism has left the island and temperatures become milder, then colors, scents and in particular the light are just wonderful. Visit Sardinia in the autumn and discover the hidden secrets and wildest regions of Sardinia.

Here a few suggestions for your autumn trip:

The sea: after the touristic rush, the most famous beaches become all yours. It’s finally time to enjoy long swims in the sea and sunbathe on the shore.

Outdoor sports: Hikers can enjoy a pristine nature and devote body and soul to scenic walks and fun climbing routes. The more adventurous can discover caves, try canyoning, kayaking, SUP or windsurfing.

Autumn in Barbagia: from September to December discover the heart of Sardinia through a magical circuit which invites you to experience ancient traditions, arts and crafts. www.cuoredellasardegna.it/

Local museums: for the most curious, Sardinia offers the chance to venture into history with its museums but also with the many nuraghi scattered throughout the island.

Festivals: autumn is festival time! Choose between the polenta, the chestnut, the saffron, the pomegranate and the artichoke festival, just to name a few, and experience up close local folklore and arts.
