Sardinia, a unique experience

Sardinia in October - our reasons why autumn in Sardinia is awesome!

Warm, sunny weather, pleasant bathing temperatures and only a few tourists make October one of the most beautiful travel times for Sardinia. Because when autumn in Central Europe already shows the first cold and rainy days, in Sardinia you can spend still a wonderful holiday from September to October and often also in November. Here are our best reasons for a Sardinia holiday in October:

1. Great combination of beach and adventure

October temperatures are pleasant, but not too hot. So you can hike, jog or visit Sardinia's highlights in the morning and swim, snorkel in the afternoon or just relax on one of the most beautifull beaches on the island!

2. Experience culture and cities

Days with bad weather are rare, but it can of course also sometimes rain in Sardinia. In case of a day with bad weather you can for example take a walk through a city like Cagliari, Alghero or Olbia and do some shopping. Numerous museums on the island invite you to discover the island's impressive past. And as you have the time, it is worthwhile to learn more about the history of Sardinia. For example, discover more about the history of the Ursards, the Nuraghen and the Spanish and Piedmontese conquerors that are not mentioned in most of the history books.

3. Enjoy the country, the people and the Sardinian cuisine and traditions

What Northern European travelers especially notice is that in the autumn it gets dark much earlier in the evening compared to countries as the United Kingdom, Ireland, Norway and Denmark. As soon as the sun goes down, the Sardinians are happy to celebrate what their fertile island has to offer. Every weekend there is a different event, especially in the mountain areas. A wonderful example is Autunno in Barbagia. Sardinian specialties are served, traditional costumes, music and liters of local wine are poured. Everyone is welcome. But also a gastronomic evening in a good restaurant, an authentic trattoria or simply in a pizzeria are also nice to end an autumn evening in Sardinia!

4. Extend the summer in southern Sardinia

When the days get shorter, the south of Sardinia plays its aces. Between Costa Rei and the Costa del Sud the season is a few weeks longer compared to the north of the island and it is not uncommon to have a wonderful swim in the beginning of November.

5. Great quality at good prices in the low season

Since Italy mainly lives from Italian travelers who prefer a midsummer holiday, the price level on the island drops considerably when the large companies in northern Italy reopen in September and the summer vacation ends. Therefore, the price drops considerably from mid-September and you can often go on holiday at half of the high season price. If you also decide to go on holiday to Sardinia in autumn, you could also decide to book early in the season to benefit interesting early bird discounts .

Here we selected a few accommodations that are worth a holiday, especially in the off-season:

1. Hotel Mariposas

A small, cute hotel in the southeast of the island. This wonderful small complex is a real gem and the endless long sandy beach of Villasimius is jus a few steps away. At the same time, it is only a stone's throw to the lovely center of Villasimius, where restaurants, pizzerias and shops are still open in the off-season.
