Where to stay in Cagliari - Villasimius - Southern Sardinia

Cagliari - Villasimius - Southern Sardinia Hotels

Villasimius is a small sun-swept town set in the southeastern corner of Sardinia, 50 kilometres east of Cagliari, the island’s capital. The town boasts a laid-back resort vibe, where winding palm-stippled streets are lined with white-washed buildings, chic boutiques, and regional restaurants. But the real draw to Villasimius is the area’s beaches. Enormous stretches of sweeping white-gold sands arc around pristine aquamarine waters, creating a slice of paradise.

Things to see

Begin your bright and balmy Villasimius morning by seeing one of the area’s key historic landmarks. Head over to the Old Fortress of Villasimius, perched on a tree-blanketed hill looking over the shimmering ocean waters below. This ruinous stone stronghold dates back to the 15th century. Today, you can walk among its war-battered walls, admire its imposing presence, and visit its small but informative onsite Archaeological Museum. Afterwards, get outdoors and soak up some of southeastern Sardinia’s idyllic natural scenery. Head over to the Area Marina Protetta Capo Carbonara, a huge swathe of rocky hills, juniper trees, and grassy banks which lead down to smooth sugary beaches, and the turquoise marina itself. Outdoor adventurers can take a hike through the hills, while marine-enthusiasts can rent a boat - or take a boat tour - across the peaceful waters. Snorkelers can also see the multi-coloured coral, weird octopuses, and fire-red lobsters. Later in the afternoon, dig your toes into the warm sands at Punta Molentis beach.

Where to stay

The centre of Villasimius is perfect for those folks who want a resort atmosphere mixed with a true taste of local small-town charm. When you’re not lounging around on the beachfront, you can stroll the meandering town streets and splurge in the local shops. The shady square also makes for perfect people-watching, and the independent restaurants serve up sumptuous seafood. For quick access to the key beaches and the Area Marina Protetta Capo Carbonara, stay slightly south of the centre, toward Simius. If you’re after an all-out resort-style setting, you’ll find blissful resort complexes in the beachside Villaggio Mandorli, just west of Villasimius.
