Like all of Italy, Sardinia is wonderful for kids of all ages. Babies and toddlers are cooed over everywhere, while older kids and teenagers can unleash their energy with a host of outdoor activities – from horse riding on the beach to learning to dive and snorkel, kayaking to climbing, wildlife spotting to coastal hiking. Most resorts have tree-fringed promenades suitable for buggies, as well as playgrounds and gelaterie.
Wherever you base yourself, discounts are available for children on public transport and for admission to sights.

One of the amazing things about Sardinia is that it combines so many environments all such a short distance apart. You could spend the morning in the hills surrounded by greenery, where the air is fresh and scented by pine sap, have an organic lunch at an “agriturismo” farmhouse, be sunbathing in the afternoon on a deserted white sandy beach with turquoise water and then take dinner and drinks in a modern 24hr city with all the amenities you could ever need.
If you have never heard of Sardinia, it is a beautiful Italian island situated smack-bang in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea just below Corsica. Sardinia has a mild short winter and a long hot dry summer and seems to experience the second spring in October when plants and flowers return from the summer heat. The year-round good weather allows plenty of outdoor activities both on the coast and inland: from mountain biking in the wild hills to scuba diving or kitesurfing in the crystal clear sea or simply relaxing on the warm sand of your favourite beac.
Sardinian’s diet typically consists of fresh, healthy and seasonal food. For the best quality, we recommend buying your fruit, vegetables, honey, olive oil and cheeses from local farmers called “Agricoltori diretti” oh and don’t forget the wine. You can also find fresh fish at the local market’s fishmongers in every town, called “mercato civico”. Typical global fast food chains are present in Sardinia as anywhere else while plenty of other takeaways like the “Rosticceria” (Roasted meat, potatoes etc) and the ever-popular Pizzeria can be found in all towns and city centres.
