Holiday Information

Famed as Italy’s most exotic island, Sardinia is blessed with a fantastic network of well-surfaced and car-free roads.
Starting in the north of the island your journey takes you along the high rising limestone cliffs of Capo Caccia and through the lush cork oak-forested Ferru Mountains. Heading south you cycle through the rolling Marmilla hills and can visit the UNESCO heritage site of Barumini, before crossing the fertile Campidano plain to the mountainous Green Coast. After visiting the San Pietro and Sant'Antioco islands your trip ends in the quaint fishermen's village of Pula.
The route then follows a coastline of sandy beaches, emerald green waters and jaw-dropping ocean views taking you all the way to the southern point of the island.
During your holiday you will stay in a wide variety of dwellings, ranging from independently run small hotels to family managed agriturismo with the accommodation of a consistently high standard throughout. Food wise you are in for a real treat. The Sardinians pride themselves in their cuisine and it is certainly not a destination where you will go hungry!
If you have a day or two to spare why not extend your trip with some trekking or sea kayaking. Our local team can join you for a day’s guiding or we can provide the information and equipment to allow you to enjoy the routes self-guided, just give us a call for further info.
