Another holiday at the hotel Villa Margherita in Golfo Aranci this time complete with mother-in-law, (if you’ve read my other review you’ll know who I mean, elderly lady abandoned at Gatwick by uncaring son) and it was even better than last year.
We were given a room with a private jacuzzi on the ground floor overlooking the garden and the bay, it was truly wonderful. The room was large with a very comfortable kingsize bed and a beautiful bathroom complete with bidet. The towels were changed twice a day. The room's crowning glory was the massive balcony with hot jacuzzi, where we could lie on our loungers soaking up the sunshine, after applying factor 20 obviously, or lazing in the warm bubbly water. Heavenly would probably just about cover it, although I think heaven would have to go some to beat it.
We spent one day on the hotel yacht, and for only 50€ each we went out at about 9.30 in the morning until early evening were fed and watered (well wined and dined actually) and taken to two beautiful bays where we could swim in the absolutely clear waters which surround Sardinia or go onto the islands. Some of the party went snorkeling, others just sunbathed, we swam and it was fantastic. The day ended with our being taken to watch wild dolphins. We’re going again next year and this is most definitely one experience we will want to repeat.
The breakfast is superb, cheeses, hams, fruits, breads, EGGS AND BACON, in fact anything you could possibly fancy and served with tea or coffee, or both, sitting around the beautiful swimming pool beside those delightful gardens. On our last night we enjoyed a gala dinner in the hotel restaurant of about seven delicious courses, each one better than the one before This is a perfect hotel, we’ve stayed in quite a few four star hotels and this tops the lot.
Golfo Aranci is a very quiet little town but has all we need for a holiday, there is a fab restaurant, which I mentioned in my last review, near the train station. Get there early it fills up quite quickly, and coming out of the hotel and turning right walk only a few yards to find a fantastic ice-cream shop. I can’t remember how much it costs but it was cheap and very delicious. Leave the hotel via the gardens, turn right and only a few yards along the road is a lovely beach with sparkling clear water where you can walk and trail your feet in that clear sea and look out for the tiny fish or enjoy a drink and snack at one of the beach bars.
I’m just about to book again for our third visit and I don’t think that will be our last.
I have a few more pictures which I'll post separately as TA only allows 10
