Responding to your question about Sardinia family vacations, you could consider staying, Eastwards from Western Sardinia, in Sassari, Castelsardo, Santa Teresa di Gallura, Palau, Golfo Aranci and Olbia.
Sassari is a culturally-rich city with a lot of interesting sites, good restaurants where to eat the traditional Sardininan cuisine and close to beautiful Sardinia beaches. Il Vialetto di Sassari will offer you cosy rooms and budget accommodation in double and triple rooms.
The medieval city of Castelsardo offers you a number of excellent restaurants with seafruit dishes as well as good beaches. Hotel Riviera- Ristorante Fofò will welcome you in 4-star modern double and triple rooms.
Santa Teresa di Gallura is one of the most beautiful places in the North. This little city is located on a headland only 11 miles far from the Southern Corsica Coast. If you would linke to stay alltogether in an apartment than can host up to 6 people, La Contessa is a good choice for you. Otherwise, Méta Hotel near the center, the tourist habour and 1 km far from the Rena Bianca beach.
Palau is located near the famous Costa Smeralda in Western Sardinia. Hotel Piccada offers large apartments for up to 6 people. Hotel For You, in Olbia, offers Emerald Coast accommodation in fully supplied air-conditioned hotel rooms.
Golfo Aranci is set in a 15-minutes-drive from Olbia and 5-minutes-drive from Porto Rotondo, and boasts wonderful beaches well-known for its clean waters. Sardinia Blu consists of a number of accommodations ranging from one-room to three-room apartments.
