Family holiday end October in Sardinia - advice please!

We are looking for a relaxing, hopefully beach oriented holiday in Sardinia for my wife, 2 young children (6&9) and I. We fly into Alghero at the end of October and will hire a car to explore.

Can fellow TA's advise on what part of the island would work best for us? I understand the north and west can get windy and therefore cooler in the Autumn - so should we head East or South perhaps? Where on the island would we get the best chance of sun at this time of year? I am happy to drive but would prefer not to spend all our time in the car!

Any advice on good quality child friendly hotels (open at that time) would be gratefully received. We like to eat out so a choice of restaurants would be great - I realize we are way out of season so this might not happen.

If the weather does not co-operate then we will spend more time exploring - so where would be a good base to work from especially with our children in mind?

Hi I dont think you will be sitting on the beach end October/ November,

I have just returned from Montresta near Bosa on the west coast, three weeks ago the temp was in high thirties this week it was 25/27 and dropping, it is also a bit chilly at night. There are many nice places in Sardinia to explore but im not in a position to advise where to go at that time of year.

GOOD LUCK AND ENJOY

Thanks Charles - we live on the west coast of Ireland and our kids think 18degc is warm so anything higher is a bonus! I guess my main question is where we should go to reduce the chances of rain in Sardinia at the end of October? I realise there is no sure bet but some areas are more likely to get wet than others as per Ireland where the south east tends to be drier and warmer....Any thoughts anyone?
