Sardinian Places is pleased to launch its new look, re-branded 2014 holiday brochure this month. With over twenty years’ experience, the tour operator continues to offer a wide selection of quality self-catering and hotel options across the island, in total 85 properties for 2014. This includes six new self-catering properties and eight new hotels.
Property choices are classified as ‘Simple’ through to ‘Premium’ with the Sardinian Places’ trademark being the detached villa with pool set in extensive grounds within easy drive of the beach. Hotels range from authentic agriturismos through to deluxe hotels complete with spa and thalasso facilities.
The new Sardinian Places brochure incorporates Augmented Reality and QR codes for the first time which allow customers to instantly bring the brochure to life. By downloading the tour operator’s free *Serenity Holidays app from the App Store and Google Play, there is access to photographs, 3D floor plans, as well as property and destination videos.

2014 BROCHURE HIGHLIGHTS:
Daily Flights & Flexible Holiday Durations www.sardinianplaces.co.uk/flights
Courtesy of regular flight routes – charter, no frills and scheduled - operating into Sardinia from the UK, Sardinian Places can offer holidays of flexible duration, including weekend hotel breaks if desired. Sardinian Places advises early booking to take advantage of competitive flight prices, which have been proven to increase closer to departure.
Fourteen New Properties www.sardinianplaces.co.uk/new-for-2014
New property additions for the forthcoming season include:
Hotel El Faro, Porto Conte, North West Sardinia
Perched on a stunning rocky outcrop on the Baia delle Ninfe, this stylish 4* hotel has been designed to feel like a boat moored out at sea. Adjacent to the ruins of an ancient watch tower in the Nature Reserve of Porto Conte, the hotel has two sea water swimming pools with guests also able to swim in the intensely blue bay from the property’s two small jetties.
Villa Oltremare, Sant’Antonio di Gallura, North East Sardinia
This two-bedroom villa sits in a spacious flower-filled garden, with lawn areas set between dramatic granite rocks, all surrounded by mature trees and glimpses of the neighbouring Gallurian countryside. With features such as exposed beams and large stone fireplace, this charming traditional villa has the added appeal of being only a few minutes’ walk from Lake Liscia.
Hotel / Residence Cormoran, Villasimius, Southern Sardinia
Set on the beautiful Campus beach of Villasimius - a beach well known for its fine white sand and crystal clear waters, the 4* Hotel / Residence Cormoran is built in the shape of an amphitheatre making the most of its sea, garden and mountain views. Perfect for couples and families alike, the hotel also offers self-catering options, having apartments and bungalows located within its spacious grounds.
Touring Holidays www.sardinianplaces.co.uk/touring
Touring Holidays remain an integral feature of the Sardinian Places’ programme with many customers keen to explore different regions at their own pace. Sample tours are presented - such as a Twin-Centre combining the North East coast (4* Relais Villa del Golfo & Spa) and central Sardinia (4* Hotel Su Gologone) - with the added possibility of tailor-making trips according to the holidaymaker’s individual requirements. Twin-centres with Corsica are also an option courtesy of sister company, Corsican Places. It is also possible to combine hotel and villa accommodation.
Family-Friendly Hotels & Child Discounts www.sardinianplaces.co.uk/child-discounts
Family Holidays have an introductory double-page spread in the new brochure with the appeal of the destination for children discussed, as well as ‘Top Family Days Out’ suggested. Sardinian Places is keen to highlight the generous child discounts available at a wide range of its featured hotels, 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 www.sardinianplaces.co.uk/early-booking-offers
A selection of Early Booking Offers is available on 2014 holidays, valid if booked by 31 January 2014. These include ‘Couple Offers’ with savings of up to 30% per person and ‘Family Offers’ with savings of up to £250 per person. See the above link for more details.
2014 holidays with Sardinian Places start from £399** per person (eight sharing), based on seven nights self-catering in a four-bedroom villa, including flights, car hire, welcome hamper and optional visit from a Sardinian Places’ representative. Sardinian Places offers flexibility in that it can book holiday packages or accommodation-only for its customers, as well as or including AVIS car hire.
