Review of Casa Anna in Sardinia

Pin It Now! Casa Anna Alghero, Italy

Our trip to Alghero, Italy was incredible. I miss it so much and am already daydreaming about visiting again. What really helped to make it an incredible experience was where we stayed during our visit. Casa Anna is a fully furnished two bedroom apartment in a residential neighborhood of Alghero.

The apartment is decorated beautifully and really feels like a home away from home. It includes a washing machine (which we did end up using and it was wonderful to have), rack for drying clothes outside, hair dryer, iron/ironing board, air conditioning and tv with a dvd player. One afternoon was kind of rainy for a few hours, so while the kids napped we watched “Once Upon a Time in America” with Robert de Niro.

We really wanted an apartment with a balcony and/or terrace, so that when the kids would go down for bed, hubby and I could still enjoy the atmosphere.

I booked through www.Sardiniansunhomes.it The hospitality of this company was over the top. Laura and Maurice provided us with everything. We were picked up from the airport (in a car with child restraints for the kiddos!) and upon arrival were offered to be taken to the local grocery store. Laura gave us a bottle of wine, some apertifs and several bottles of water. It was wonderful to feel so taken care of on our trip.

We really don’t mind walking, so this apartment was perfect for us. Walking distance to the city center of Alghero was 30min and to Maria Pia beach was also 30 minutes. But it was the dead of summer and a beautiful walk, so no big deal. Plus it helped us justify our over indulgence of gelato and pizza.

Each morning we stopped by the supermarket which is about a 10 minute walk from the apartment. It’s an excellent supermarket stocked with everything you could need. They have milk, yogurt, produce, bread, crackers, snacks, water, juice, diapers/wipes, baby food and even beach toys. Really, anything you could need from a grocery store.

I would highly recommend this apartment to any family vacationing in Alghero.  A true gem!  Can not wait to go back to Italy.  It's my favorite so far.

 Our next adventure is taking us to the famous Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau castles!  We will also be visiting Dachau concentration camp.




  1. It sounds incredible! Sardinia has been on my 'must visit' list for awhile, and an apartment like that, with all that hospitality sounds like a lovely place to stay :-)

  2. Sardinia sounds like such a great get-away spot. Maybe the hubs and I will take a vacay there....
    Thanks for sharing.
