2. Carloforte

It is located on San Pietro, off the southwest coast, one of the most beautiful islands in Sardinia. A very quiet and relaxing place, with narrow and small lanes often flowing directly through precious and sheltered beaches.

3. Alghero

Nowadays, the architecture of Alghero still prove the traces of the past Catalan domination: the old town and the beaches in the nearby are absolutely a must-see. A little less than an hour’s drive, Bosa it’s smaller than Alghero, but boasts all the charm of a river city, and is a place where the Sardinian tradition has remained almost untouched until today.
