With wild hinterlands, rugged mountains, historic cities, pristine beaches and delicious food, Sardinia is the ultimate holiday package. And while it is technically part of Italy, the island is very distinct from the mainland.
Though it can’t always be felt in the luxury hotels of Sardinia’s cosmopolitan Costa Smeralda, there is a proud sense of individualism here that becomes all the more apparent in the smaller towns and rural parts of Sardinia where agristurismi (rural rentals) abound.
‘Best’ is the crucial word here, because any stay is likely to be a success. So the key to choosing the very best hotel in Sardinia is prioritising what you want most from your trip.
There are plenty of cheap hotels in Sardinia’s cities, such as Olbia and Cagliari, for those who wish to be immersed in the culture and heritage of these ancient settlements. But if you want a luxury, five-star Sardinia trip, look no further than the Costa Smeralda where glamour is the name of the game.
A little further south of Olbia, you’ll find beautiful beaches ripe for solitary strolls and contemplation. And on the other side of Sardinia, Alghero and Sassari are a colourful mix of Italy and Spain, with both cities having been at one time Catalan colonies.
From nabbing the best views to sweet talking your way into an upgrade, improve your chances of getting the best hotel room – without paying through the nose – with these expert tips.Read moreabout Ask the experts: How to bag the best hotel rooms
