In the last few years, the tiny former fishing village of Villasimius has evolved into a genuine highlight. The extremely lovely geographic location joins and connects the eastern with the southern coast. And so it is an amalgamation of everything that makes Sardinia so uniquely beautiful:rugged coastal cliffs, long sandy coves and small secluded swimming spots, always set off by the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
Variety is the greatest asset
People who love holidaying in Villasimius love variety. Many years ago, the clever town manager already understood that the natural potential of the region can only be fully developed through high-quality tourism with a sustainability orientation.
And so a decision was made to create an infrastructure that also attracts discerning and wealthy holiday makers.
In addition, Villasimius has a large number of excellent restaurants, most of which are operated as family businesses. So you will find optimal conditions for spending relaxing and enjoyable days here throughout the entire year.
The centre of town is of ancient origin and still conveys an impression of what the former fishing village in the southeast of Sardinia looked like some time ago. In the meantime, restaurants and cafés have opened up all around the piazza. In the summer, the village road becomes a pedestrian zone and thus an evening meeting place for locals and holiday makers alike.
Marina and golf course
Many of the old Costa Smeralda fans have long since shifted their sights to the south of the island. And so it is not very surprising that Villasimius has become the focus of the more well-to-do because of its historically developed local structure and natural beauty.
A very fashionable marina and an 18-hole golf course that underscore the flair and image of Villasimius were constructed in order to cater to the new clientele.
Of course, people with average incomes get their money’s worth as well. An excursion to the harbour is still worth it, even if you cannot afford your own yacht. An outing with a sailboat or a delicious snack in the harbour pub definitely make a visit well worth it.
Beaches and bays
Further away from the main access roads to the long, wide beaches of the town, there are many small cul-de-sac tracks leading to the literally innumerable small coves.
People who love to unwind by taking long walks on the beach will delight in the beautiful sandy beaches at Capo Carbonara and Campulongu. If you prefer even more solitude, you should undertake an exploratory expedition: just take your chances and venture along one of the small tracks leading to the water. Everything you discover is fascinating and beautiful!
Hotels and Villas
While some slightly unattractive apartment buildings can be found in parts of the town centre and the directly adjacent areas, along the beaches more effort was devoted to ensuring that the villas and hotels fit into the landscape and are well-integrated into the lovely appearance of the coast. So it is fortunate that today you can find really lovely and tasteful accommodation options right next to the sea – and of course a few especially beautiful vacation homes through us.
