Sardinia: more than 2,000 kilometers of coastline

This large Italian island is flanked by almost 2,000 kilometers of rugged coastline and long stretches of sandy beaches which meet the deep blue ocean. The interior rises with forested mountains criss-crossed with gorges, challenging footpaths and pastures used by more than 4 million sheep. As you explore the island, layers of history present themselves through the mysterious Bronze Age ruins that dot the landscape in their 1000s and ancient Roman ruins which still stand more than 2,000 years after being built. One of the real joys of staying in a Sardinia vacation rental is the unique cuisine, rich in cheeses, wines and pastas.

Things to do

History dots Sardinia

You can step back in time when you visit Sardinia. The island is festooned with more than 7,000 Bronze Age nuraghe structures. You can hardly turn one of Sardinia's winding country lanes without bumping into one of these ancient settlements or towers. The ancient Roman ruin of Nora near Cagliari is well worth an afternoon of discovery. When you stay in a Sardinia vacation rental, try to save some time to delve into the stalactite-laden Neptune's Grotto, which quickly became one of the island's most popular attractions after being discovered by a fisherman more than 200 years ago.

Activities

Get ready for some of Europe's best hiking in Sardinia

You are spoiled for choice when it comes to outdoor adventures in Sardinia. For some, it's too difficult to tear themselves away from the sun-soaked shores. Those who make the effort find winding mountain footpaths, ideal cycling routes along uncongested country lanes and some seriously scenic equestrian trails. If you score a Sardinia vacation rental along the coast, you can dive into the island's long list of water sports. Hop aboard one of the charter sailing boats for an afternoon at sea, rent a paddle board for adventures along the coast, or drop below the surface with a mask to discover ship wrecks.

Weather

The Sardinian climate is near perfect

Without a doubt, the best time to stay in a Sardinia vacation rental is between late spring and early summer, when the skies are sunny, and the temperature is at its most agreeable. It hasn't reached the summer peak season yet either, so you can score some mighty fine deals. July and August are sizzling and best spent stretched out on the beaches and cooling off in the Tyrrhenian or Mediterranean Sea, though the evenings are filled with balmy outdoor events. Fall brings in cooler weather and can be a wonderfully scenic time without the crowds.

Natural features

A diverse natural landscape in Sardinia

Sardinia is one of the largest islands in the Mediterranean and has a diverse topography that sees lush forested mountains tumble down towards long stretches of white sandy beaches. There have been efforts made to ensure the island hasn't seen overdevelopment or damage to the environment. If you visit in spring, the first thing you'll notice is the colorful wild flowers that carpet the interior. If you're a birdwatcher, you're in luck. If you point your binoculars towards the coastal marshes or cliffs, you'll spot everything from falcons to ibis.
