2013 Brochure Out Now

10 January 2013 - Sardinian Places - Press Office

Sardinian Places 2013 holiday brochure is now out and the tour operator continues to offer the largest portfolio of Sardinian properties to the UK holiday market (over 80 choices), with hotels, villas, apartments and residences across the island. Sardinian Places can book complete holiday packages, as well as accommodation-only and AVIS car hire for its customers.

Highlights of the new 2013 brochure include:

New Properties
Sardinian Places’ new property additions for this season include two new self-catering options in Alghero, North West Sardinia. Apartment Piazza Civica enjoys a privileged location in the heart of Alghero old town - a stone’s throw from a labyrinth of narrow cobbled streets, gothic architectural landmarks and the seafront. Situated on the first floor of an old building, the converted one-bedroom apartment overlooks the bustling square of Piazza Civica with its array of cafés, little shops and traditional eateries.

Also new to the programme in Alghero is the two-bedroom villa Casa Angelica. Casa Angelica is a cottage-style villa nestled in the Alghero countryside. Appealing factors of this villa include its cool open plan interior complete with terracotta-tiled floor and striking circular pine roof. However, the large maquis-scented garden area with pool is also an undoubted pull of Casa Angelica, which is within easy reach of Alghero’s restaurants, Catalan architecture and fine selection of beaches.

New Touring Itineraries
For the first time within its new brochure, Sardinian Places presents three sample touring itineraries to give customers a flavour of tailor made touring holidays. These incorporate more than one hotel base thus increasing opportunity to discover more of the island. The three suggestions encourage exploration of the most beautiful and contrasting areas of Sardinia and are entitled ‘A Sardinia Taster’ (7 nights); ‘Explore Authentic Sardinia’ (10 nights) and ‘Sardinia & Corsica Twin-Centre’ (7 nights).

Flexible Durations
Courtesy of frequent flight routes operating into Sardinia from the UK, Sardinian Places can offer holidays of flexible duration. During the summer flights are available any day of the week from eight UK airports with a choice of charter, no frills and scheduled flights. However, Sardinian Places advises early booking to take advantage of competitive flight prices, particularly concerning no frills airlines – which are likely to increase in cost closer to departure.

Hotels for Families & Child Discounts
Family-friendly hotels are a good selling-point of Sardinia in general. Sardinian Places is keen to highlight a great selection of suitable hotels providing a range of activities and facilities for children, most of which offer child discounts of up to 50% for children under 12, with certain hotels offering completely free child places. The savings are on the accommodation element of the holiday (not the flights or car hire), but can still represent a substantial discount.

Early Booking Offers – Book by 31 January 2013
Sardinian Places is offering a selection of Early Booking Offers on its 2013 holidays, valid if booked by 31 January 2013. The three main offer themes are ‘Couple Offers – save up to 25% per person’; ‘Family Offers – save up to £300 per person’ and ‘Free Child Places’.
The couple offer with the saving of up to 25%pp relates to the 4* Hotel Corallo - a perfect romantic retreat in Isola Rossa, Northern Sardinia – where, inclusive of the early booking offer, 7 night holidays now start from £564pp including flights & transfers, resulting in a saving of £190pp from brochure price. www.sardinianplaces.co.uk/hotel-corallo

In general – as with flight prices - the best hotel discounts are likely to be available for those who book ahead of the 2013 holiday season starting, particularly the peak season. Call the Sardinian Places Reservations Department or visit www.sardinianplaces.co.uk/offers for details.

This season, (2013), 7-night holidays with Sardinian Places start from £389 per person, based on eight sharing self-catering accommodation at the four-bedroom Sardinian-style villa, La Mendula, located in the seaside resort of Cannigione.
