Booking a Car With Us
If you decide to spend your holidays in Sardinia
, the main problem is how to reach this marvelous and wild land. There are two options: ship or plane. The first is very charming with a crossing that for those who love the sea, may be pleasant and enjoyable but it certainly takes a long time. For this reason the aircraft is almost always preferred. And if the chosen location is Alghero
there is no doubt. In fact this beautiful town has a modern airport which receives a large traffic of domestic and international flights: It is the Alghero Airport "Riviera del Corallo"
located in Fertilia, a flat area of the Nurra, north of Alghero. Once landed, however, it would be necessary to rent a car to make the most out of your stay, with easy and hassle free trips. Booking online with us may be the best solution to quickly get a car that awaits us on our arrival.
Visiting Alghero and the surroundings by car
Fertilia is only 15 minutes drive from Alghero, a city in the province of Sassari
, where Catalan is still spoken: A sign of Spanish domination, as witnessed by the buildings in the center and by the name of the places, where the italian name stands beside the same in catalan. As already revealed by the name of the airport this area is rich in coral that here is harvested, transformed into jewelry and marketed. Its coasts are full of small coves and secluded bays, alternating with beaches and cliffs. The climate is warm and dry and is a paradise for those who love sports: swimming, sailing, windsurfing, tennis, horse riding. Worth a visit is Capo Caccia
, a panoramic promontory about 25 km from Alghero where you can admire the great cliff in the shape of a sleeping giant and the caves of Neptune, reachable both by sea and by land through the Escabriol stairway
, which means the stairway of the deer. The whole area is part of the Great Regional Natural Park of Porto Conte
, instituted for the protection of the wildlife.
