We stayed in San Pantaleo for 3 nights and it was an ideal base for exploring the Costa Smeralda. It's a pretty village with a nice choice of restaurants and shops and we loved returning here each evening. A nice contrast to the busy and...More

San Pantaleo is a quaint and pretty village near Olbia. Well worth a visit, especially to all the boutique shops near the main square. Be aware that its expensive though!

We visited this village but were disappointed as despite being billed as a pretty little village, we were unimpressed...the cafes were us inviting and the shops very expensive and a bit niche. We didn’t really find much history or anything pretty to look at and...More

Definitely worth a visit to this pretty and picturesque village where time seems to stand still. Good selection of cafes and restaurants, a little supermarket and enjoyable walks in the surroundings admiring the rocky landscapes!

It would be a very long walk, as by road, it is probably at least 3-4 miles to any coastline and maybe farther to a usable beach.

Which place to stay on Costa Smeralda (16 Replies)
Hello, we will travel to Sardinia between Oct 18 - 25 and want to stay 3 days on the Costa Smeralda but don't know exactly which place to book for our stay. I've seen some nice accomodations in Arzachena and San Pantaleo. Which one would be better for our travel period? Or are there other places you would recommend? Any recommendations for accomodations? We would like a lively area, not too quiet. Thanks.

&gt;We would like a lively area, not too quiet. To start at the end, the whole of the Costa Smeralda will have a distinct 'closed for the season' feel in October. Good news for those who want see the natural splendour but not for those seeking any form of nightlife. Arzachena is an inland working town that isn't really a holiday destination at all. Unfortunately the way TA and other websites confusingly address locations makes it look as if Arzachena town is on the coast in the Costa...More

Another itinerary question (7 Replies)
I've only just started reading the Sardinia forum and have read a few post regarding itineraries. We will have 12 days in June and would like to get a feel for the life there without rushing around too much. We also plan to hire a car. Coming from Australia, we're used to long distances between places but realise this isn't the case in Sardinia. We also have good beaches so the itinerary isn't all beach based. I'm not sure if I'm planning too much or too little, so any help would be...More

Looks a great itinerary! Even though no distance between those 4 base locations is more than a couple of hours, you'll really get a feel of being in a completely different area at each one - their terrain is quite diverse from one another. The only thing I would perhaps consider tweaking is the amount of nights spent in Oliena as there is a fair bit to see &amp; do in that area.. I would take perhaps one from either or both the Sinis or San Pantaleo nights thus 3-2-4-3 or 3-2-3-4 ...More
