I rent a beautiful two double bedroom apartment in "Cannigione"-“La Conia," 300 meters from the beach. To go to the beach is only a short walk. The house consists of two bedrooms (one with a double bed and one with two single beds), a bathroom, a living room with a kitchenette, two gardens, a parking space and a covered veranda overlooking the sea. This home is great for families as the back garden provides some space for children to run and play. The outdoor table and chairs are the perfect place to enjoy meals or sit and relax while looking out over the sea.
Cannigione is a beautiful seaside village with lots of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues. A highlight are the night markets when the main street by the port becomes a lively and enjoyable attraction with markets selling the works of local artists and souvenirs. There are also some "show rides" for the children. It is a great place to walk after dinner with a gelato.
One kilometer from the port in Cannigione is La Conia, a residential area, that is very quiet and suitable for relaxation without being too far from the comforts of town. The path that links Cannigione to La Conia follows the sea and is great for those who like to run or walk.
Near La Conia you can also enjoy some beautiful beaches, such as Mannena, Tanca Manna and Piscine equipped with kiosks. Beach access is free and you are able to rent chairs and umbrellas if you wish. Other towns that you may want to visit are only a short drive from the flat. Porto Cervo is 12 km away, Baja Sardinia is 10 km away and the harbor and airport of Olbia is 30 km away. During summer there is a free bus service that visits all of the main beaches and towns with a stop in La Conia that you can use to catch the bus. The bus visits Arzachena, Porto Cervo, Baja Sardinia, Cannigione, La Conia and Tanca Manna along with a number of smaller stops.
If you arrive in Olbia and are coming to the house via car you need to follow the street signs for Palau, then Arzachena and then Cannigione. It is approximately a 30 minute journey.
We had a great stay in Sardinia! We were shown around the apartment by Antonella's husband who was very helpful and spoke really good English. It was all very easy getting settled in.
The apartment had a good sized kitchen with all the implements we needed so we were able to cook easily.
(Things like cleaning products, toilet paper, hand soap etc. aren't provided so remember to bring your own).
The position of the apartment means that we got morning sun all morning/afternoon on the front patio (where chairs are pictured) and late afternoon/evening sun on the back patio - so you can sunbathe all day!
We shopped for groceries in Cannigone which was 10 mins in the car or could be reached on foot along the waterfront.
There is a really lovely beach 5 mins drive away with a nice low key bar set back from the water. Also, 5 mins walk from the apartment was a nice restaurant set on the beach with amazing views - really reasonably priced too!
The apartment itself was clean and tidy and the hosts were available for us to contact at any time which was really helpful.
There was an additional charge of 15 euro pp for linen with extra blankets provided if it got cool - which it did while we were there in May.
The location is handy to several beaches and is really relaxed. It would be a lovely spot for families.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cannigione. The place was as advertised, a double bedroom flat. Nice area with lots to explore in the area.
The price was reasonable.
We would return to the same accommodation and host should the opportunity arise.
