Sardinia itinerary (9 days)

Jump to last reply

We are a family of 4 (two kids 7 and 10 years old) and will have 9 days in Sardinia on our summer trip. We will spend 3 nights in Rome and then take either a flight or ferry over to Sardinia. I would love advice on how to break up the 9 days. I had thought about 5 nights in the north (near Cannigione) so that we can do a day trip to Corsica and Maddalena Islands and then 4 nights in the east (near Santa Maria) so that we can do hiking, boat trips from Arbatax, Cala Goloritze, Su Gorroppu and Golfo di Orosei..

What I'm finding though is that a lot of rentals require 7 night minimums. The resorts when you are a family of 4 are more than double the cost as when you are just a couple. So it makes sense for us to rent (VRBO or airbnb) vs paying $500+ a night at a resort. Our budget is up to $300/night and must have a pool.

Would staying 7 nights in the North part of the island be too much? and only having 2 nights in the east too little?

Thanks!
