Sardegna in Sept/Oct - please help!

Jump to last reply

We are planning our first trip to Sardinia in September/October. We have 18 days altogether and will have a car for 15 of them picking up in Olbia and dropping it off in Cagliari. We've travelled a lot, most recently in Greece, Sicily and southern Italy and Portugal.

We like our food and wine and prefer to stay for 3 or 4 days in each place, and try to have access to a kitchen so we can find the local markets and eat local food.

We like local culture and food and interesting historical sites - not looking for resorts and night life. We're 60-ish and not so into hiking.

Here is our very initial plan. We'd love some comments from those more experienced. We're feeling a little overwhelmed right now. Sardinia seems particularly hard to plan for...

Arrive 25th Sept in Olbia (from Venice)

stay 2 days possibly Palau or Olbia or somewhere reasonable in the area.

27th Castelsardo (have booked a night at Baga Baga)

28th - 2nd Alghero (there is supposedly a festival 28th/29th - and we were thinking to do day trips north and down to Bosa

2nd - 6th - probably Cala Ganone - we like the look of La Favorita on the water there.

Then 6th/7th- back to the western side to Oristani or near there (??)

8th/9th slowly down to Cagliari.

10th - 13th Cagliari without a car

13th we fly to Trapani and stay a few days in Palermo before flying back to the mainland...

Sometimes it seems like a long time - 18 days - when I write it out like this it is pretty short.

A more specific question as well?
We arrive in Olbia on 25th and have a booking in Castelsardo on 27th - we'd like to stay somewhere for two nights and explore the beautiful area north of Olbia. Should we stay in Palau or Santa Teresa di Gallura or somewhere else between?? We'd like somewhere moderate around $100 if possible.
