1. Re: which area to choose?

ThewrightsManchester,

The whole of Sardinia is quite beautiful, with spectacular beaches and scenery everywhere. You will not be disappointed wherever you choose.

Before you make your choice, you should know one or two things:

Firstly that public transport is not good, particularly outside of the period covered by the summer schedules. (Mid June - end September. As a result, airport transfers to some resorts can be almost no-existent, arduous and very difficult, or expensive. You may care to ensure that you are not affected by this difficulty before you book your resort or accommodation. One way to minimise the problem is to select a resort close to the airport at which you intend to land.

Secondly that Sardinia is not a year round holiday destination, as a result of which many of the facilities in smaller resorts close down between the end of September and May, although as you mention that this is to be your main holiday, I assume that this will not be a problem.

Finally, Sardinia is the holiday destination of choice for Italians from the mainland, which virtually closes down during the month August. Consequently, things get very busy here so it is very important to book immediately if you want to find anywhere decent to stay. It also gets very hot, so be sure to ensure that your accommodation offers the benefit of air-conditioning.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to come back.

Good Luck.
