The air-conditioned living/dining room is spacious and comfortable with a dining table and chairs for eating indoors. Patio doors open onto a large balcony with a distant sea view, where you can sit, relax and enjoy a glass or two of wine on warm sultry evenings.The family bathroom has shower, toilet, bidet and sink. The washing machine, for holiday laundry, is situated here too.We have provided a hairdryer for your convenience. The apartment has a large air-conditioned master bedroom with a king size bed, with ample wardrobe space for all guests. The smaller bedroom has bunk beds. The sofa in the living room converts into a very comfortable double bed. Italian Satellite TV is available as a complimentary service (some children's cartoons and films in English WHEN AVAILABLE) , and there is WiFi for those who can't do without the internet and social media. • NO SMOKING • Guest are required NOT to flush anything down any of the toilets except toilet paper – that means NO nappies, nappy liners, cleansing wipes, make-up wipes, cotton wool pads, sanitary products, panty-liners or kitchen paper etc. • Use of the Air Conditioning Units is included in the rental cost of the villa, however guests are required to turn the units OFF whilst not in residence. • Pets are NOT allowed. • Please recycle your rubbish. Rubbish bags are to be cleared from the property daily. There are large communal bins on the roads of Alghero for you to use. • Guests are required to clean cooking utensils and appliances as they are used i.e. oven, grill plus any spills that occur. • Arrival and departure times are fixed unless prior arrangements have been made with the OWNER. For holiday makers without a car, there's no problem. Everything you need is within a 5 minute walk...the beaches, the shops and some really good family- friendly restaurants. There is a good bus service that can take you into the old town or if you prefer, you can take a leisurely 20- 25 minute stroll along the promenade to Alghero town via the marina and old port (The advantage of the apartment being out of the town is that the area is very quiet at night enabling you to get a good night's sleep) Head to Alghero Veccio (old Alghero) for some evening 'People Watching' and retail therapy or have a drink in the many waterside bars and cafes. Lido and La Pinetta beaches are literally a 5 minute walk away from the apartment. These beaches provide sunbeds, cafe/bar, beach showers.There is a busy weekly market just outside the apartment every Wednesday morning. Alghero is a bicycle friendly town with dedicated cycle lanes and routes. Cycle hire is available at several outlets.If you can't do without your fix of Golf, then there is a 9 hole Pitch and Put course approximately 5 kms away near Fertilia. For those Adrenalin junkies among you, Lido beach is a great place for kite surfing in the Autumn when the prevailing Mistrale winds are blowing.. More

About the neighbourhood
Just north of Alghero's marina is the Lido, also known as San Giovanni Beach. It is a 1.5 kilometer ribbon of sand and a great spot for sun-worshipers. For something even more spectacular, just 5 minutes away by car is Maria Pia Beach, a long stretch of ice-white sand fringed by fragrant pine forests. The Mediterranean is warm, crystalline, and child-friendly. Or head to nearby La Bombarde Beach, which has a lively line-up of beach bars with DJ s spinning the decks. There are several good restaurants within a few minutes walk of the apartment for those of you who don't fancy cooking in the evenings, and a selections of good supermarkets offering lovely fresh Italian produce and groceries, for the budding chefs among you. The old town is full of cobbled streets, sunny piazzas and waterfront...
Getting around
You don't need a car if you stay at the apartment as it is literally only a 5 minute walk to the beach and a leisurely 20 minute walk to the old town or the marina. Alternatively you can get the bus that travels along Via Don Minzoni or the seafront. If you want to travel further afield then you will need to hire a car or a bike. There are dedicated cycle lanes that go from the old town to Fertilia and beyond. There are boat trips available at the port and if you want to go to Sassari then the train station is about 15 minutes walk from the apartment.
