Valledoria

Welcome to Valledoria

 

Plan your 2020 holiday in Valledoria, in Sardinia, Italy! Organize a truly memorable experience. Hidden along Sardinia’s northern coast and situated in the middle of the valley of the Coghinas River is the town of Valledoria.  It is surrounded by gentle hills and the beauties that look out over the Gulf of Asinara; it’s an ideal position from which to easily reach the most famous surrounding destinations including Castelsardo, Mimosa Bay, Isola Rossa and Costa Paradiso. Heading east, you will arrive in no time at the Maddalena Archipelago and the Emerald Coast.  Heading west, after about an hour’s drive you can visit the area of Stintino, Alghero and Capo Caccia with its famous Grotte di Nettuno.  Interesting sites include the Petrified Forest, the nuraghe Leni, the Casteldoria baths and the ruins of the homonymous castle from the XII Century. Its coastline is formed by fine, sandy, long and varied beaches with ample portions of alternating rock and sandy dunes that break into a yet uncontaminated sea and its multicolored seabed.

 

A voyage over an emerald sea, past characteristic coves and beaches of snow-white sand, this is Sardinia, an island that strikes its visitors with natural contrasts, the lights and colors of a region that boasts old traditions and a wild and pure nature. Situated in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Sardinia is a mainly mountainous region, without high peaks, with a vast and charming, yet bittersweet, natural environment. In fact, the presence of man does not seem to affect this territory; great surfaces still preserve their natural composition, luxuriant woods with even millenary trees, small desert areas and marshes inhabited by deer, wild horses and rapacious birds.

 

It is like nowhere else in the world. This is the Sardinia seen by the first travellers and by the writers of the past: they describe a land that emerges slowly from the sea, and tell of the natural spectacle that gradually appears, bathed in intense light. Mountains that sink to the coast, sometimes gently, sometimes suddenly, frame ever-changing scenery. It is never very far from the sea to the hinterland, and the route is dotted with small, traditional villages, the intimate ‘soul’ of Sardinia. On the roads that lead to the heart of the island, welcomed by the warm hospitality of its communities, you can discover the authentic life and ancient traditions of the villages. You can lose yourself in criss-crossed paved alleyways, and come across ancient buildings, natural monuments, archaeological sites, and discover masterpieces of artisan work and unequalled cuisine. You will experience the essence of Sardinia, and its most genuine identity.
