Blog > Top self-catering holidays in Costa Smeralda & The North East

If you're craving some relaxation time and hot summer sunshine, have you considered a Sardinia villa holiday? Here we showcase our favourites in the North East.

Perhaps one of the more well known areas of Sardinia, the Costa Smerala and North East is home to plenty of gorgeous sandy beaches and sophisticated resorts, making it a beautiful location for many sun-seeking holidaymakers.

One of our favourite aspects of self-catering holidays in Sardinia is that you get the freedom to either explore the culinary scene of the island (and what an experience it is), or enjoy some home cooking and al fresco dining - definitely a wonderful way to make the most of the glorious Mediterranean weather. 

At Sardinian Places, we offer frequent flights into Olbia (including midweek) from five different UK airports, making sure you have plenty of choice when it comes to booking your Sardinia villa holiday. If you want to, you can even tag on a day, or perhaps even a few days, in the French island of Corsica - taking the ferry north to Bonifacio reveals a historic citadel and beautiful harbour with incredible vistas. 

If you're tempted to find out more, let us help by highlighting some of our favourite villas in the Costa Smeralda and North East, all ready and waiting to make your summer truly unforgettable. And remember, all our self-catering holidays come with a hire car, so you can explore until your heart's content, and our in-resort reps are always around should you need support when on holiday with us.
