Responsible tourism: Sardinia family holiday accommodation, Italy


The area is not densely populated, with extensive countryside and non-cultivated areas with wild shrubs and maquis.

For this reason it is suitable not only for the beach but also for beautiful walks in the open air. We propose the mountain bike instead of the car for short trips in the countryside, respecting the environment!

In this area you can still find species of wildlife such as arboreal froglets, geckos, birds and small prey, hedgehogs, etc. (sometimes guests in the garden!)
We protect our wildlife and promote its respect, and try to find ecological ways of managing our eco system. To combat mosquitoes and other pests, we have 2 small ponds with goldfish that play a good eating action against larvae of mosquitoes!

We also encourage the respect of sea and sea wildlife in all its form, inviting guests not to damage the reefs and not to collect marine animals, sea urchins, starfish, etc.

We have recycling facilities on site and encourage the correct separation of waste (paper, glass, plastic, organic, etc) for a more effective recycling of materials.


We offer free maps of the area, which highlight local businesses, and the main shops and restaurants of this little town. We also encourage our guests to check out the tourist services in the area (hiking, boat or ferry tours, canoe rentals, etc.) all run by local people, in addition to guided tours to the Asinara island nature reserve, the archipelago of La Maddalena, or of Neptune Caves of Alghero.

We know the area very well and are available to provide information on monuments, historical and archaeological sites, churches, tourist attractions of this area. We can provide also information about a going further afield on a trip to northern Sardinia.

We always advertise local handicrafts, mainly composed of woven baskets and artifacts, as well as promote the purchase of products typical of Sardinia, such as towels and embroidered textiles and carpets, ceramics, traditional spirits (such as myrtle) and food products such as fresh pasta , sweets, cheese.
Often we provide small gifts of traditional products as "gift" to our guests, helping to support local producers and encourage our guests to explore more of what the local area has to offer.

We also propose our own local restaurant recommendations, "agriturism" and shops with local products, festivals and food and wine tours that allow tourists to discover new flavors and above all healthy and organic products.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Linda and Mike (London)
We stayed in Appartment B for 6 days in July and had a very pleasant and relaxing stay. This was a very nice apartment - very clean and well equipped, cool inside without need for air conditioning. Outside the garden was lovely and shady with comfortable outside seating, BBQ available, good views over country and coast, and herbs we could use. It was close to pleasant local beaches, shops etc and a good location for visiting other parts of NW Sardinia. The owners were very helpful, lots of information provided before we came and tourist leaflets and suggestions when we arrived. One slight criticism was there was poor noise insulation from the house above us which tended to wake us - so we never quite managed good holiday lie-ins - always hard when floors are tiled and people are operating with different time schedules.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Although it's only 800m to the small town and shops, and just a bit beyond that to the beaches, you do need a car - especially in summer. It's steeply downhill to the town and beaches, (and up when you come back), and there are lots of places of interest and other beaches not too far away, which it would be a shame to miss - 'Castelsardo, the Elephant Rock, ancient nuraghi, Isola Rossa and the white sand beaches around Santa Teresa' - and lots more slightly further afield.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

The appartment and garden were well appointed to be able keep cool, inside and outside in the garden in the heat of the day - without air-conditioning - ie reducing use of power and associated noise. It is also one of a few holiday houses where the recycling of rubbish, compost and food waste were so well organised, with separate bins for each category.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to others - with the slight criticism noted in 1. above. We could happily have stayed longer and visited more of the places to see in the Northern part of Sardinia.
