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
The House of Cheese is just 5 minutes away, sensational and not expensive
Maurizio. our local manager, speaks English and can help with just about anything

“A homely apartment in a beautiful location”
Reviewed 1 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We would consider returning to the same apartment. Alghero and its surroundings are fascinating and beautiful. The owners' home-made guide book is invaluable. Karen, the local manager, is very helpful and was sympathetic to my stupidity in locking myself out.

We would recommend hiring a scooter (as we did) or a car, in order to explore Sardinia (particularly the mountains) and get to the best beaches.

We have already recommended the same holiday to friends.

“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed 11 August 2012 for a stay in June 2012

person found this review helpful

Casa Raffaela is right in the old town by the catheral. It is wonderfully furnished and is equipt with everything you'd need during your stay. The welcome book that was provided was so very useful as were the variety of maps and tourist guides. Karan was very welcoming on arrival and when we left. The only issue was when leaving when the cleaners (both very lovely and friendly) were not sure about whether I was aware of where to move our luggage to for the day - we had a late flight so were able to have the key to another appartment for a few hours, I can't tell you how useful this was! - but a couple of phonecalls between Karen and the cleaners sorted this out eventually.
The appartment owners could not be more helpful via email and I didn't have any concerns about booking. The only small downside to the appartment is that the shower is quite small and there is no air-con - but is was in the low 40'c on a couple of days! We would definitely stay here again though; all the small details you want in a holiday rental are there and it's the perfect location for enjoying Alghero. And there was a bottle of wine in the fridge and some lovely flowers when we got there!

“Exceptional. Exceeded my expectations”
Reviewed 2 March 2012 for a stay in February 2012

Situated in 'the heart' of the old fishing port of Alghero, Casa Raffaela awaited me at the top of a narrow flight of stairs. The apartment has been sympathetically restored and beautifully refinished with a real eye for detail and a hint of luxury (beautiful linen). The apartment was lovely and clean with very useful information regarding places to shop, eat or just laze away your days provided by way of the welcome book. My only regret that I wasn't there long enough to work my way through the whole book! What a joy to be welcomed with a bottle of Sardinian wine in the fridge (the first of several that was enjoyed). The location of Casa Raffaela meant that I was close to everything, be it walks along the waterfront, buying fresh produce (cheese, meat, pastries) from the local markets or shops to take back to the apartment or enjoying a glass of 'something' at one of the number of cafes in close proximity, or when required was able to come back behind closed doors and enjoy the peaceful sanctuary of the library, where visitors are welcomed to read or swap books for the enjoyments of others. A lot of little details have been put into this apartment by the owners, including postcards for your use. I unfortunately had just 3 nights at Casa Raffaela, but it felt like I had been away from the hustle and bustle for weeks. I will be back....

What a lovely review, thank you. We do enjoy hearing from first time visitors to Alghero; it takes us back to our first holiday. Like you, it was the simple things of walking around the old town, going to the market or enjoying a glass of wine at a nearby café that ‘sealed the deal’ for us. Be careful you may get hooked and end up buying an apartment…!

“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed 27 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

Me, my wife and 2,5 yrs old daughter stayed in this apartment in August 2011 for 2 weeks. We are extremely happy about Casa Raffaela. This place is lovely, clean, almost like home. Situated in perfect location, provided everything what we could need. You can find even road maps, (map of the best beaches in Sardinia was very helpfull), cities plans, postacrds etc or bottle of wine in the fridge!!! Brilliant idea with the Welcome Book - so many infos and advises about Alghero, pizzerias, restaurants and other things like emergency phones. I`ve been traveling to many places but I have never seen something like that before! Very handy. Even our daughter was really enjoying staying in Casa Raffaela!!! The bathroom and toilet are very clean, no problems with hot water or shower (every day after the beach bathrrom was very busy :).
Casa Raffaela is apartment in the Old Town and u will really feel the atmosphere of Sardinia. Big Thanks to Blue Water team-Karen and Franco (fantastic people) for help with transfers from and to the Alghero airport
Italian food is fantastic but pizza is the best. i really recommend pizzeria La Furat. Awesome pizzas for the prices between 4-6 euro !!!Claudio - the owner is the lovely man.Pizza and Torbato or Mirto on the evening and we were happy out!
If you would like to discover Sardinia i recommend to rent a car. dont miss La Pelosa beach in Stintino or La Bombarde!
At the end i`d like to thank Greg and Pippa ( the owners), Karen and Franco for fantastic time in Sardinia. We have had fantastic time in Alghero staying in Casa Raffaela, our the best holidays ever!!!

“Cosy appartment, well situated in the centre of town.”
Reviewed 12 July 2011 for a stay in February 2011

This is a lovely little property situated in the center of the old town. It offers guests the chance to be in the hustle & bustle of this charming historic fishing port, yet is isolated enough to escape to when needing a little peace & quiet.
A clean & well serviced property, there were no issues finding pots & pans etc as everything we needed had already been supplied.
