Secrets of Sardinia

8 Days Easy

Sardinia's west coast is one of wild azure bays, verdant river valleys and palm-lined towns peppered with golden stone country churches. This 7-night linear holiday follows the coast south, taking you back through Sardinian history with evidence of its colorful and turbulent past - Spanish castles and ruined nuraghes (fortified strongholds left by the earliest settlers 4000 years ago) are scattered everywhere.

You begin amid rainbow-painted houses in Bosa, stepped beneath a C15 castle on the River Temo. From here, you cycle up to a broad natural balcony above the coast and on to Tresnuraghes, surrounded by frescoed villages where old ladies weave wicker baskets on doorsteps. It is then south to Cuglieri's C15 basilica and a night in an amazing cliff-top retreat, before an exhilarating freewheel down to the Sinis Peninsula, a protected marine reserve. Pancake-flat wheat fields and rice paddies surround lagoons of flamingo beneath a 180o mountain panorama. From here, long beaches of shimmering crushed quartz sand stretch for miles, and on the way to your final stopping point in Cabras, you'll explore the stunning coastal Roman city of Tharros, destroyed by Saracens in the C11.
