Sardinia route for 2 week touring?

Jump to last reply

We are arriving in mid September, flying into Olbia , renting a car and driving around seeing the sights and departing start of October for Sicily . We'd like to base ourselves in three or four areas so we don't change beds every night. It seems a good idea perhaps to go from Olbia across the Costa Smeralda (without staying, we're budget tourists ) and head for the Alghero area, then down to Bosa and stay, then across to Golfo di Orosei area , maybe Cala Gonone where we hear there are festivals at this time , and make our way down to Cagliari, maybe Chia etc.
We are looking at getting a ferry from Cagliari to Sicily and would stay a few days exploring Cagliari as it sounds really nice. If it is not possible to return the car there because of high drop off charges, we're considering driving back up the west coast to Olbia , return the car and take the 3 1/2 hr. train trip back down to Cagliari.
We like B+B's and apartments where we can cook for ourselves sometimes, interesting ruins and coastlines, authentic villages and countryside and not so much hiking, diving etc.
Are there some good suggested bases we can use to relax in between drives on this route? Maybe good apartment and restaurant suggestions ?
Thank you for all advice....we're really looking forward to our visit having heard such good things about Sardinia....
