Paradise in the Mediterranean Sea

Sardinia | Think of white sandy beaches that are framed by picturesque steep cliffs. The azure blue water surges gently towards the banks of the wide bays. Picturesque villages with old churches and shady squares. Do you like this vision? Then you should travel to Sardinia!

The Mediterranean island around 200 kilometres west off the Italian mainland is regarded as a holiday paradise. Whether at the many white sandy beaches which promise perfect bathing fun or in the mountainous heartland of the island with its beautiful landscapes and pretty villages you are guaranteed a memorable holiday. The most beautiful beaches of the island include those of the Costa Smeralda, the Costa Rei and the Costa Paradiso. Next to the beaches, the beautiful landscape and the sunny Mediterranean climate the leisure choice on Sardinia is also great: The main activities include amongst others diving, snorkelling, wind and kite surfing as well as climbing, hiking and mountain bike tours. Well worth seeing are also the various towns on the island such as Cagliari in the south of Sardinia, Sassari in the north and Olbia in the east. The island’s capital Cagliari impresses particularly with its harbour and old town situated on a hill offering breathtaking views towards the bay. Also worth a visit are the cathedral of Cagliari that combines several architectural styles and the botanical garden which is a real oasis of tranquillity amidst the city. Other exciting tourist attractions are the many limestone caves and grottos as well as the preserved structures of the Nuraghen culture who were indigenous to the island in pre-Christian times.

Especially popular for a holiday home vacation on Sardinia are according to atraveo customers the beach sections Costa Rei, Costa Paradiso as well as San Teodoro, Porto Corallo, Torre dei Corsari and Santa Teresa Gallura. Further information and suggestions for a holiday home vacation on Sardinia can be found at the holiday home selection for the island and in our blog.

    In ca. 5 Min. ist man in einem kleinen Laden der die nötigsten Lebensmittel, sowie frisches Obst und Gemüse im Angebot hat. Die Bedienung ist sehr freundlich. Für grössere Einkäufe fährt man ca. 10 Minuten.

    mit Hund perfekt, da GNV (Grandi Navi Veloci) von Genua über Nacht direkt nach Pto.Torres fährt + dies die einzige Fähre ist, bei der man den Hund mit in die Schlafkabine nehmen kann! Der Hund brauchte nichtmal einen Maulkorb an Bord wie sonst in Italien. Vom Fährhafen ist man in 20-30 Minuten am Haus. wunderschöne Strände und Buchten an der Landzunge Richtung Stintino/Isola Asinara sowie Richtung Santa Teresa und Archipelago della Maddalena. Die Roccia dell'Elefante ist auch ganz nah, Sassari und viele kleine Städtchen ebenfalls. wobei die Sonnenterrasse, das Grundstück und der Strand so schön waren, dass wir die meiste Zeit "zuhause" genossen haben :-) wir müssen also dringend wiederkommen, um noch andere Orte zu sehen.

    Boodschappen doen moet met de auto. In Sorso of verder weg in Sarsari of Castelsardo. Door de slechte toegangsweg moest de auto verder van het huis staan.
    Sorso niet bijzonder, geen leuke restaurantjes of terrasjes.
    Kleine strandjes bij Marina di Sorso wel leuk en ongedwongen.
    Bezienswaardig Alghero, Castelsardo, Sassari, Porte Torres iets minder. In deze plaatsen leuke restaurants met vooral in Castelsardo schitteren uitzicht. (rest. Rocca Ja)
    Prijsniveau in restaurants en strandtenten laag voor ons.

This is how holiday rental owners described Marina Di Sorso

In 1834, the traveller and bibliographer Antoine-Claude Pasquin, known as Valery, wrote the following about Sorso: “The rich and hard-working town of Sorso is situated in a vast plain and its inhabitants, mainly farmers, cultivate tobacco and sago palms that produce the bitter “margallions of Alghero” (arrowroot).

Sorso is a ...

town with about 15,000 inhabitants situated in the north-west of Sardinia, behind the Gulf of Asinara, just a short distance from the sea and a few kilometres from Sassari, the main town in the Province. It stands in a geographical sub-region known as Romangia. Its territory offers a variety of opportunities for visitors to enjoy thanks to the flavours and fragrances of the seasons, the ancient streets of the centre, the countryside and the enchanting coastal area. Visitors are always given a warm welcome by the hard-working population that jealously and proudly protects the historical, cultural and linguistic heritage that has been handed down through the generations. Sorso and its people are famous and appreciated, even beyond the boundaries of Sardinia, for their simple farming culture and their strong sense of hospitality.

WATER AND EARTH

Situated in the centre of a natural amphitheatre between Porto Torres and Castelsardo, the town of Sorso overlooks the Gulf of Asinara and the island of the same name that, thanks to its natural heritage, has been a national park since 1997.

The area around Sorso is either entirely flat or hilly. Panoramic views from its hills are truly breathtaking at any time of year. The sea in the gulf, well-cultivated fields and a costal strip with a pinewood offer a variety of colours, in which the greens of the vineyards, olive groves and pines dominate.

The coast between Porto Torres and Castelsardo is bound by the Stagno di Platamona to the west and Punta Tramontana to the east and runs for 18 kilometres of mainly white sandy beaches, persistent Mediterranean vegetation and dozens of hectares of green pinewoods and juniper thickets that drop to the sea. Also along the coastal strips are large, fairly characteristic sand dunes that drop to the sea and are called “pettini” (combs). These end in large squares or short seafronts lined with numerous tourist facilities such as hotels, holiday villages, campsites, restaurants and bars and bathing establishments. Safe bathing in the waters off the coast is guaranteed thanks to fairly shallow, sandy sea beds, although there are fascinating deeper areas for diving enthusiasts. For fun days out, there are also a number of beaches with facilities and a fantastic water park.

Sorso Marina is famous for surf-casting, favoured by the abundance of fish in the Gulf of Asinara, populated by giltheads, amberjacks, mullets and bass. The pinewood that extends behind the large dune area was planted in the 1950s and now includes numerous other endemic plant species, such as age-old junipers (Juniperus phoenicea and Juniperus oxicedrus) with their characteristic fragrance.

Parallel to the coast, the Stagno di Platamona stretches for 95 hectares. Elongated in shape, it is separated from the sea by a long strip of pinewood. The pond’s name derives from the Greek-Byzantine place name for the area that means “flat surface”. It is a pond-lagoon that was once connected to the sea, but is now fed by the Rio Buddi Buddi and Rio Pedrugnanu. Typically situated behind the dunes, it has shallow waters with low salinity and is populated by eels and carp. The marshy area has surprisingly lush flora that consists in various bands of vegetation, including cane thickets, reed beds, rushes and juniper thickets that envelope the perimeter. It also has rare marshland plants like black bogrush (Schoenus nigricans) and Ravenna grass (Erianthus ravennare) and other plant species endemic to Sardinia and Corsica, including woolly safflower and succulent campion.

One of the riches of the Stagno di Platamona are the wealth of birds, both migratory and other, that nest here, some of which are rare and at risk of extinction. In fact, the pond’s cane thickets are the ideal habitat for various migratory and non-migratory ornithological species such as coots, mallards, grebes, marsh harriers, grey egrets and little egrets, pintails, red-crested pochards and above all, purple swamphens that have a small colony in the dense cane thicket. Thanks to its particular characteristics, the area near the pond has been recognised as a nature reserve and has been included on the list of European Community Sites of Interest.
