Comparisons, such as Sardinia is the Caribbean of Europe may be attempted, but hardly show a complete picture of this wonderful Italian island with many contrasts. However, D H Lawrence was definitely right when he said, in 1921, Sardinia is something else! Maybe that is why this island has become a playground for all varieties of holiday makers and is famous for its Holiday Villas in Sardinia and Sardinia Vacation Villas located by sandy beaches, rocky coastlines and the rugged interior.
Sardinia, called Sardegna in Italian, has a landscape of dramatic rolling uplands in the interior, covered in 'macchia', grassland mingled with myrtle, wild thyme, dwarf oaks and prickly pears. This is in complete contrast to the transfixing coastline adjacent to translucent turquoise water, with isolated coves, long white sandy beaches, and caves. The Gennargentu mountains reach 1,834 m in the interior and shelter many rural villages. These mountains fall away in the north east towards Sardinia's most exclusive coastline, the Costa Smeralda.
Villas Sardinia are ideal for people wanting to rent self catering vacation accommodation. For many holidaymakers, and for a part of the European jetset, Sardinia consists of the world famous Costa Smeralda in the northwest, with its dazzling white beaches, and of the knowledge that many celebrities visit the island.
However, there is the lovely south east for the majority of us wanting to rent Sardinia Villas or Sardinia Apartments; the area around Torre delle Stelle, Villasimius and Costa Rei is really lovely. But the island has much more to offer. A few selected tips should demonstrate that there can be much more to a holiday on Sardinia than bathing, diving, surfing and snorkeling. So treat yourself and rent holiday apartments or villas in this beautiful holiday jewel called Sardinia.
