Casa Raffaela is in the heart of the Old Town, a stone's throw from the bastioni
The bijou opera house, Piazza del Teatro, next to Casa Raffaela
The bastioni (sea walls) are alive at night
View from the bastioni across the marina to the white sands of the Lido
The bastioni at sunset with Capo Caccia on the horizon
Capo Caccia (the sleeping giant) dominates the horizon and affords spectacular sunsets
Beach Italian style - the Lido is endless white sand, a 15-minute walk, 5 by car or bus
There are so many beaches; this one is Lazzaretto, about 15-minutes drive north
Porticciolo is one of our favourite beaches - no amenities, fewer people, beautiful
The trip out to Neptune's Grotto at Capo Caccia is a fabulous experience
Maurizio. our local manager, speaks English and can help with just about anything
We shop daily for locally grown produce; sun-ripened not truck-ripened
Fresh from a trip to market and ready for lunch...

“We just keep coming back”

At last we can review self-catering apartments on TripAdvisor; From the moment we first visited Sardinia I have been trying to spread the word about Casa Raffaela. We have been lucky enough to visit this wonderful island 6-7 times. We always spend a few days or more in Alghero, and always in Casa Raffaela.

The location is amazing, smack bang in the heart of the historic centre on the edge of a small piazza. A couple of minutes up the narrow lanes is our favorite fish restaurant, Mabrouk (a must do when you visit). Then a few steps from the apartment is the dignified, Andreini; a bastion of fine dining. However, the best is the 2 minute walk to the seawalls to enjoy our nightly stroll in the setting sun.

We also like to cook and it is not far to walk to the daily produce and fish markets either. The kitchen at Casa Raffaela may be small but it is fantastically setup, and includes everything you will need from crockery to cookware. And…unlike other apartments we have rented, all the glasses, dinnerware and cutlery are of a nice quality. I know this might seem a bit pedantic but it’s these small details that keep us coming back every year, and it is particularly important when planning a candlelit dinner with your beloved.

The apartment itself is charming and well put together. It embodies the whole feel of the island by blending the modern and the old, (especially the modern comforts!) Everything is of a high quality, rather than being a dumping ground for stuff discarded from the owner's main residence. Another small detail which really makes this little apartment feel like a home away from home.

I know this is a bit of a rave, I’ve just been waiting so long to give this place a public review and spread the news. Hopefully it will help anyone looking for a special place to stay in Alghero.

Thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed review with positive feedback on the apartment. We do take pride in the place; after all we spend a lot of time in it ourselves and we wanted it to be more like a home. My wife is always on at me to "check, check, check everything is just right"! Thanks too on behalf of the wonderful people at Andreini and the rather ebullient Marie-Antonetta at Mabrouk; two of our favourites for eating in the Old Town. See you next time!

“Great Place”
Reviewed 15 June 2011 for a stay in April 2011

I stayed here with 2 friends in April and had a wonderful experience. The location is ideal, with shopping, restaurants and the beach all in walking distance. The villa is clean and comfortable with everything you need for a nice relaxing trip. What we found most impressive was the assistance from the owners. From the time we booked until the time we returned, they stayed in touch with us making sure everything was perfect. They provided us detailed instructions for the best way to get there from the airport, "check in/check-out"was incredibly easy, and there is a great binder in the room that outlines the best places for eating, shopping, night life, beaches, activities, etc. It was obvious that the owners genuinely want to make sure you enjoy your stay, and we absolutely did. If we ever return to Alghero I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
