I' ve just spent two wonderful weeks with my husband and our two children in Carmines house in Cannigione. We found it far better than suggested by the pictures: it was absolutely clean and it is very comfortably and lovely equiped, with a big wooden table and chairs on the terrace, so that we could every day have breakfast and dinner looking at the spectacle of changing lights on the wonderful bay of Arzachena. The place is very quiet, as it is situated just at the edge of the village, and however it is very near to the center. We appreciated to live in a real old village with a soul rather than in a holiday resort. Carmine was very nice and reactive in answering all my questions and Daniele, the employee of Smeralda Estate who greeted us, was absolutely nice and helpful. As he 's got his office just next to the house, he was there whenever we needed him for any help or advice and our son could even catch internet from the terrace. It would be a pleasure to stay there again, thank you very much! .
Any advices for future guests:
+ it was very hot in july , go there rather in june or september if you can!
+we rented a car by "Sicily by car" at the airport, it's the cheapest company
+the restaurant we prefered was the "Hotel del Porto", they serve a wonderful grilled fish plate, and the pizza at the "Sciumara" and by "Serafino" is very good (to take away also!)
+you can rent 40 horsepowered boats without any licence( that's not the case in France) in Palau or Cannigione and enjoy the visit of the Archipelago de Maddalena or hug the Smeralda Coast
+ concerning the beaches, if you don't like crowded beaches, just walk a little bit along the rocks, you'll always find a lovely small creek where you can stay alone!
+try also the west coast (Spiaggia Reina Maggiore) which is far wilder
