If you don’t like to sit still when on holiday, perhaps a self-drive holiday is up your street?

When thinking about your ideal type of holiday, are you more excited about visiting lots of different places and discovering hidden gems than relaxing on the beach for week or two? If so, we think that self-drive, or fly-drive holidays as they’re also known, could be a perfect option.

With the prospect of exploring a huge chunk of the island, fly-drive holidays in Sardinia are becoming increasingly popular, as you get to see so much more of the destination, and it’s really easy to do. Here at Sardinian Places, we offer several different pre-designed itineraries for fly drive holidays, where you can do small segments of the island, or embark on longer tours of the entire island, and even incorporate Corsica into the mix. To give you a flavour of what you can expect, here’s just a couple of examples of our favourite fly-drive holidays…

Flying into Olbia, you’ll get to explore the sought-after and very sophisticated Costa Smeralda region of the island. Porto Cervo and Arzachena are two resorts on the map, but there are plenty of archaeological sites and unspoilt coves to explore across the entire north-west region of Sardinia.

A fantastic way to get even more out of your fly-drive holiday to Sardinia, is to also pay a visit to Corsica! This twin-centre holiday allows you to fly into Olbia, and hop on the car ferry to begin exploring southern Corsica. Discover Bonifacio, Porto Vecchio and more during your three nights here, where you can climb magnificent citadels, visit sparkling beaches and indulge even further in flavoursome French cuisine.
