The property was well equiped, nicely furnished and SPOTLESSLY clean

  • 5 of 5

We had a great welcome from owner Roberts's parents, Gavino and Giovanna, they were very helpful throughout our stay and live only five minutes away, Roberto is also available on the phone, should they been an issues, although we had no problems at all.

We arrived to a lovely gift of Sardinian cakes, a bottle of bubbly and a full fruit bowl really thoughtful.

The apartment was spotless clean and very well furnished, the kitchen cupboards were stocked with olive oil, herbs and spices etc.

We spent the week relaxing, highlights of the week for us were:

Isola Rossa - a lovely beach with pink granite rocks, small fish swimming in the clear water, although beware they do bit!

Castelsardo was great for afternoon ice cream and downloading the daily paper.

Alghero - we particularly liked wondering around the old town and sitting in a café watching the world go by. A trip to the Neptune caves is also worth a visit.

We found the local bars in the village very pleasant and the locals very helpful.

Many thanks a lovely holiday.

Lovely apartment in peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

Although we arrived later than expected due to getting lost (arriving on a late flight to Olbia), we had a lovely welcome from the owner Roberto's parents. They were very helpful throughout our stay and live only five minutes away, if we needed anything Roberto was also at the end of the phone.

The apartment was a great base for my family for our 2 week stay and has a peaceful setting located up the hill from La Bagnu town. Very close to Castelsardo for exploring the lovely old town, an hour from Alghero and many lovely beaches to try - Isola Rossa being one of our favourites. For children (and big kids!), the water park near Sorso was great fun.

The apartment was also great if you want a relaxed day around the pool with beautiful views, we often had the pool to ourselves and this was in August!

The only small recommendation for music lovers would be to have an ipod dock or similar for playing music and possibly wifi access.

Thank you to Roberto and your lovely parents!

"Beautiful apartment in a great location"

  • 5 of 5

We had a great welcome from the owner Roberto's parents, they were very helpful throughout our stay and live only five minutes away, if we needed anything Roberto was also at the end of the phone.

Lu Bagnu was a great base for my family with two teenage children. We were close to Castelsardo for the evenings and close to lots of other areas that we wished to visit- isola Rossa being one of our favourites.

The apartment was also great if you want a relaxed day around the pool with beautiful views, we often had the pool to ourselves and this was in August!

We will defiantly be visiting again.

Thank you to Roberto and your lovely parents!

Nice spot - would recommend

  • 4 of 5

The champagne welcome provided by Gavino and Giovanna was most appreciated after the drive from the airport and was accompanied by a tour of the apartment. They could not have tried any harder to make us feel at home. The facilities were excellent and they had clearly tried to think of everything that could make a guests’ stay as enjoyable as possible.

The property doesn’t not have air conditioning and perhaps this could be something worth considering, if only for the bedrooms, for the future, as the nights were hot and sweaty. My only gripe was that the pillows in the bedrooms were very ‘lumpy’ and after trying them all I could not find one that seemed remotely comfortable, which affected my sleep all week. That said my partner and her daughter did not seem to be bothered by this.

The parasols by the pool are also not large enough for a family. Perhaps they could be larger or two supplied?

The local area has a fairly limited selection of decent restaurants within walking distance. The main strip is an approx. 10 min hilly walk away with an excellent beach a further 5 mins walk.

All in all, decent accommodation and I would recommend the apartment to anyone looking for a week away with the use of a pool.

We were so well looked after....

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Appartmento Giga for a week in July and had a wonderful time. Sardinia is a beautiful island, and very much worth visiting.

The apartment was fabulous! We were met as planned by the Sardinian parents of Roberto (the owner, who now lives in England). Roberto's parents don't speak much English, however this really wasn't a problem at all. They explained everything we needed to know, and called their son Roberto (in England) who spoke to my husband to double and triple check that we were happy. Throughout the week Roberto's parents (and then later on Roberto himself who was back for a visit) were near the apartment and happy to chat or just give a friendly wave. This wasn't intrusive at all, and I think they just wanted to make sure were were happy.

The apartment was incredibly clean on arrival and was very comfortable. The small enclosed garden which overlooks the pool was helpful to keep the youngest child away from the pool, but also close enough to allow older children to swim alone, but to still watch them. The pool was great, and a good size for the apartment (shared with a couple of other apartments, but despite it being July we didn't see many other people use it) - it has a shallow end (about a third) where young children can stand, and a deep end where a tall adult can just about stand.

The icing on the cake were the welcome gifts from Roberto's parents - Italian cakes, cherries, a well stocked fruit bowl and sparkling wine.

We couldn't have asked for more (however I'm sure if we did that Roberto and family would have obliged!!)

Lovely apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Located in Lu Bagnu about 4 km from the impressive town of Catelsardo and only 45 mins from Alghero airport. a 10 minute walk from the apartment to the restaurants and beach of Lu Bagnu or to the bus to Castelsardo. Apartment has a great view as it is up the hill from Lu Bagnu.

Apartment is exactly as described on the websites - there is a pool for use by the small number of apartments that are there. During our stay we were the only ones using the pool for most of the time.

We were greeted by the owners parents with a basket of gifts and a very warm welcome. Plus a call from the owner on arrival and departure. These are good personal touches that mean you can get any questions you have answered and you have points of contact of you need them. Apartment itself has been well finished - feels like plenty of space plus a patio for eating on.

Sardinia itself is a great location - our first visit but will def go back at some point - liked everything about it.

Overall - would recommend this apartment & the owners. If you are looking for a quiet break then this is a great place to do it.
