Things to do
Even though people have been living in the area since prehistoric times, the medieval town of Alghero was founded at the beginning of the 12th century. Its founders were Genoese, but over the centuries the town was ruled by various European royal houses. This has brought a unique cultural flavour to Alghero, most notably evident in the fact that more than a fifth of the population still speaks Algherese Catalan, a dialect unique to Alghero, as their first language.
-A guided walking tour is a great way to discover the medieval architecture with its gorgeous old churches, towers and old city walls. You can also simply leave your holiday apartment in Alghero Old Town to stroll around in the maze of narrow little alleys letting fate be your guide. Be sure to take a walk along the seafront-facing walls and boardwalks too and don't forget your camera.
-Museums are a great way to find out more about the area's fascinating history, and there are several in Alghero. They include the Museo Archeologico della Città and the Museum Casa Manno for historical artefacts and the Museo Diocesano d'Arte Sacra for religious art. The Museo del Corallo is all about the endangered red coral that Alghero is famous for.
-Food and shopping are essential features of a great holiday, so you're in for a treat in Alghero. Put on some comfortable shoes for navigating the cobbled streets of the Old Town: The most difficult part is deciding which of the many shops, boutiques, restaurants and bars to visit first. You can also visit one of the daily markets or the big weekly one held on a Wednesday for fresh produce and local specialities like Mirto liqueur. If you're planning on renting an Alghero Old Town holiday villa or other accommodation in March or April and you have adventurous taste buds, be sure to check out the Sea Urchin Festival.
-Neptune's Grotto, about 10 miles west of town at Cappo Caccia is a must-visit on a day when the sea is calm. This breath-taking cave with its underwater lake and entrance at sea level is like something out of a pirate's tale. You can get there by boat, on foot, by bicycle or, if you want to feel very Italian, by renting a scooter.
-Outdoors activities are plentiful in the area around Alghero. There are great beaches, hiking and cycling trails, horse-riding, bird-watching, rock climbing and water sports. The area around Neptune's Grotto is regarded as one of Europe's best scuba-diving sites, especially for cave diving

We stayed in this apartment in June 2013 for ten wonderful days. This apartment which is in Via Cavour and located very close to the Bastioni Cristoforo Colombo was the perfect romantic hideaway from all worldly cares. The loving care and attention of the owner is evident in every little detail, so much so that we tried but failed to find anything that we would change. The apartment is very well ventilated, perhaps because of its proximity to the Bastioni, but also because it has windows opening on to two different streets thereby catching all available breezes - we only used the air conditioning on one occasion during our stay.
The owner antonella is most helpful and always available by mail or phone so that all local info is available to the visitor, and you can make your holiday as busy or relaxing as you wish.
We would unreservedly recommend this apartment to anyone wishing for a good time in alghero. Read more

After a short bus-trip from the airport we arrived in the old center of alghero. We couldn't believe how close the apartment was situated to both the sea (literally at the end of the street) and the historic center (it is basically right in (a nice and quiet part of) the historic center)
Climbing up the stairs with suitcases was a good work-out, but once we entered the apartment, it was more than worth it!!! The most charming and well-equipped apartment we've ever stayed in!! Both kitchen and bathroom were very clean and fully equipped. Now looking back at the pictures in the ad, I can only say: What you see is what you get, perfect!!
Antonella (the owner) also gave us many tips on what to do, what to see, where to eat, etc.. Great service!! There was even a cooling bag and elements were in the freezer.
We hardly have used the kitchen, but this was only because of the many great and affordable restaurants in alghero.
After this stay we have said to ourselves that with all future holidays, location is very important. Earlier years we have stayed in (cheaper?) apartments or hotels further from the city center. But now we realized the huge benefits of staying literally in the historic center.
And if you can combine location with charm and all facilities...
That's perfect!!! 10 out of 10!!!
