Castiglias is in a stunning rural setting, but only a 5 to 10min drive out of Alghero. Staying in the countryside is a must in Sardinia - it's just so beautiful. At Castiglias you get to enjoy your breakfast on the deck looking out to the fields and the Rio Barca with Fertilia in the distance. The rooms are a generous size, with a nice bathroom. Everything is new and the decor is neutral. The pool is lovely, and with so few people staying it is rarely busy. They have plenty of sun umbrellas and some sun loungers also. Breakfast is simple, but fine....yogurt, bread, ham cheese, juice, pastries, cereal....and sometimes freshly picked figs from the garden.

This place is one of a kind. Staff were down to earth and very firendly and helpful in all aspects. Breakfasts served were deliciously enhanced by the breath taking morning sunrise and the nights were chrystal clear as we gazed into the stars enjoying salami and wine on the veranda. My wife and I enjoyed nearby local olive oil, formaggio (cheese) and wineries. This is a must if you go to Alghero! Enjoy!

We've just returned from B&B Castiglias- and don't get me wrong, we liked it a lot. However, we couldn't help but feel some people are over-hyping it a little. The setting is lovely, with great views over the fields and the river, and the pool is a real bonus. The rooms are also decorated to a good standard, with decent beds etc.

But, on the downside- you are a little way out of town- so a car is pretty essential. Not a problem I suppose if you go expecting this but a couple of other small niggles:

a) The thickness of the walls between rooms- we could hear the peope talking in the next door rooms and their coming and going pretty clearly
b) It wasn't made clear to us whether the lounge area was for guests or not. On some nights when Gabriel was using it we felt like we were intruding on their personal space.
c) Breakfast was nothing to write home about- I don't expect a grand breakfast when in Italy but the opportunity to perhaps toast the bread, or some fresh fruit or pastries once in a while wouldn't have gone amiss.
d) While bins were emptied and the room was very clean when we arrived I didn't get the sense the floors were being swept each day, and we made our own bed. The former got a little irritating after five days when there's the inevitable build up of some sand after days spent on the beach.
e) Solar powered water heating- meant on the rainy day that we had while there we didn't have any hot water.

Don't get me wrong, all of the above were niggles and I still think it'd be a great place to stay for a few days or go for a long weekend- but I don't think I'd want to be there for a week or longer or some of the things listed above would have begun to bug me.

At Castiglias I felt at home from the moment I arrived. Partially due to the stunning sourroundings and the great comfort I enjoyed here, as well as the warmhearted reception by the owners family. Filippo and Gabriele know how to guess their guests every wish in an unobtrusive way. Their help with discovering the multifaceted city and region was also much appreciated. It was this unique mix of a tranquil environment and the spirit of generosity and kindness I experienced here which made me wonder if I had actually arrived in paradise. The only difficult part was leaving...

We recently enjoyed our second visit at Castiglias. This is an ideal location for exploring Alghero and its surroundings. Gabriele and his family were perfect hosts and you could not fault their hospitality. The B&B is situated in a perfect spot with beautiful views, close to the airport and the town of Alghero. The rooms are spotlessly clean and Gabriele prepared an excellent breakfast. There is the added bonus of a pool which you will usually have to yourselves. A lovely suntrap!
We highly reccomend this B&B to anyone and will definately return.
A car is definately a must and we can recommend Enrico Farris from Alghero car hire.

What a great place - we had three super days here at the Castiglias. It is the best b& b we have ever stayed in.
Only 5 mins from the airport ( with no noise), a beautiful pool & gorgeous views, very clean rooms - who could ask for more?
You will need a car to get to & from places.
Gabrielle was a perfect host.
The only thing we did miss was any tea & coffee making facilities - but this seems to be the norm in sardinia.
