Our intent was to situate ourselves in an apartment in the heart of Cagliari's historic district, and Sa Domu Ajaja filled the bill. The apartment is within walking distance to a host of interesting sights: the port, up-scale shopping, terrific restaurants featuring unique Sardinian fare, bus stops to the Island's nearby splendid beaches and the Castello district with its amazing views overlooking the city.
The apartment owner worked with us to provide affordable transportation to and from the airport. As well, upon our request, he presented three day-trip options to visit historic sites of interest outside the city. His enthusiasm and knowledge made for a memorable time in our destination choice, Tharros, and, again, the cost was reasonable.
The second-floor apartment is reachable by stairs only, but the owner hoisted our heavy bags both up and down. The apartment, itself, is spacious and overlooks a cathedral, literally, complete with bell ringing and a host of religious activities which we enjoyed from the balconies overlooking same.
The apartment is clean and basic. Given our long-term stay, pluses for us were the washing machine and a fine grocery store within easy walking distance.
