At Sardinian Places, we offer holidays that depart from several regional airports across the UK, ensuring the utmost convenience and service from the moment that you book your Sardinia holiday with us. For those living in the north of England, you'll be glad to learn that we offer several flight options from Manchester Airport, with two flights a week operating between May October and a total of six flights a week between June/July and September.

Our May to October flights head to Alghero and Olbia with Thomson, departing early in the morning on Saturdays, so you can arrive just in time for your first delicious lunch on the island.

What to see during your holidays from Manchester

Arriving in Olbia or Alghero will give you immediate access to two of the most alluring and rewarding regions of Sardinia, packed full of attractions which include charming towns, historical landmarks and beautiful beaches. Here are three great things to do during your Sardinia holidays from Manchester.


Explore Alghero 

Alghero is a wonderful little town to explore for a day or two. There is endless character and a number of attractions to absorb as you walk around the old streets, particularly in its historic centre where you'll discover some striking architecture as well as several appealing eateries.


Hit the Costa Smeralda beaches

The Costa Smeralda is renowned as being a stylish, sophisticated and naturally beautiful stretch of Sardinia, and it is the latter point that can be applied to the area's beaches, many of which are considered among the finest in Sardinia, such as Lisciu Ruia.


Visit La Maddalena Islands

Great for sailing, snorkelling or swimming, taking a day trip to explore the beautiful collection of islands that encompass La Maddalena is a must for anybody staying around the Costa Smeralda area.
