      Looking for a private local driver...

      Sardegna Aug 14, 2015 at 12:18 PM


      I plan to travel to Sardinia the 2 last weeks of december this year. I don't drive; buses are ok but the freedom limited. So I thought maybe I could hire a island native and his private car for 2 or 3 days to drive me around. Good for me and it could be good also for a Sardinian willing to earn a little extra cash?

      I don't know how to go about it and I wish to have already a contact before landing there. An idea anybody? Thankx

      My question is more directed to the local population I guess...

      Best regards,

    • Alghero for teenagers...

      Alghero Mar 2, 2015 at 6:52 PM

      What is Alghero like for teenage boys. We will be travelling with a 16 and 14 year old. They are very active - love soccer, surfing, skating. They'll need a bit of freedom if they are to have a good time. Is Alghero safe for them to go off on their own? Are there parks where they can kick a ball around? A beach they can go swimming at? Also what is Sardegna like generally for cycling from place to place...

    • enough time for transfer ferry from Santa Teresa di Gallura

      Porto Torres Mar 2, 2015 at 1:16 AM

      We arrive with Grimaldi ferry from Barcelona to Porto Torres on 22th August at 11.30am. We want to get a ferry from Santa Teresa to Bonifacio with Moby ferrys at 15h. We have seen in google maps that the journey by road from Porto Torres to Santa Teresa is about 1h44m so I guess that would have enough time to get the 15h ferry.

      Can anyone confirm this?

    • Accomodation near Marina di Sant'Elmo

      Càgliari Feb 8, 2015 at 8:49 AM

      HI, myself and my husband will be visiting Cagliari for 10 days at the end of April. We will be visiting friends who will be moored on their yacht at the Marina di Sant' Elmo. Ideally, we would like to stay very near the Marina, so that we only have a short walk to and from their boat each day.
      Does anybody have any recommendations of accommodation please? Ideally we would like self catering but price is a big factor too.

      Many thanks for all answers. Always appreciate the help here!

      We would like to rent a house for a month or two in Sardinia next summer. I would love to walk to Beach, get to know about Sardinian Wine and buy local seasonal ingredients from Open Market and cook every day. Is it possible to find a house where I can do all of these things?

      We want 3 or 4 bedroom near a beach in a little town. We are family of 4 (2 year old and 5 year old) It would be nice to have few local stores / markets and restaurants but doesn't have to be a big town. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      Can you recommend some quiet beaches close to La Saline suitable for a 2 year old to play. We will have a car so can travel a few miles. Sand and rock pools would be ideal. La Saline beach looks unattractive. We are visiting in the first week in September. We are happy to walk some way from the car.

    • Staying at Sassari/Porto Torres

      Sassari Jul 15, 2014 at 10:37 PM

      We are going to Sardegna in the second half of August (19/8-2/9) and will be staying in agriturismo somewhere between Sassari and Porto Torres. It's not that close to the nearest beach (around 5-6 km) and that would be in Porto Torres, I assume.
      Can you please give us some advices about where to go to the beaches (we will be hiring a car, since we have our 3-years old daughter with us, so parking question is also very interesting).
      Something else to look at there in the neighbourhood? Something we should think about?

      Thank you for any information about the region!

    • Help with Sardegna itinerary!

      Sardegna Jun 18, 2014 at 2:33 PM

      Hi everyone! I’m traveling to Sardegna with two girlfriends for about 10 days in early July. Unfourtunately, we wont be renting a car (I know it would be better if we could, but sadly none of us have our licenses!)
      We are taking a ferry from Genova to Porto Torres and heading straight over to Alghero (still haven’t decided whether to stay in a campsite or hostel). We’ll stay in Alghero for three nights, with day trips to La Pelosa, l’Asinara island and le Grotte del Nettuno. Then we’ll head over east, stopping one night in Santa Teresa de Gallura so that we can visit valle della luna (still not exactly sure how to get to the valle though, though I heard that from Capo Testa/Cala Spinosa you can walk). Next stop: Palau or Cannigione and a day boat/kayak trip of the islands Maddalena. On our way to Olbia/San Teodoro (not sure which of the two), maybe swing by Porto Cervo for a couple of hours just to see what it’s like. We then want to head in land for a day, maybe to Orgosolo or Mammaoiada...we were thinking of doing the Gorrupu trek but that might be too much, since we want to spend ½ days exploring the gulf of Orosei (we were thinking of kayaking instead of renting a boat…would it still be possble to see Cala Goloritze, Cala Mariolu, Cala Luna). Is it better to stay in Orosei or Arabtax (advantage there being we can then take the trenino verde/little green train south). FInal stop, Villasimius/Cagliari for 2 nights.

      Any advice or suggestions would be very much appreciated!!

    • Free camp site?

      Alghero May 29, 2014 at 3:45 PM

      Hi There!
      We are planning to visit Alghero in a week time.
      This is our first visit to Alghero and we have all the camping gears so thinking to camp there.
      I heard there is some free camp site, although I couldn't find any on google..
      If anybody know any nice camp site,either free or not,please let me know!
      We are pretty easy going, so as long as we can enjoy beach and sleep nicely
      we don't want any luxurious thing!
      Would be great if you know somewhere not too busy and loud though.

      Thank you.

    • Transport from Airport - around midnight

      Hi there,
      we will arrive at Alghero Airport very late in the evening (23:55 p.m). Does anybody know a good transportation then - the busses are running only until 23:00 pm and as far as I figured out the car rentals are closing also at 23:00 pm and you have to pay extra fee then if you still want to rent a car. How much would a taxi cost and is it wise to reserve one in advance? Any recommendations would be highly appreciated.
