I visit Sardinia for a few years, till one day a door opened in my path and I had the occasion to move in the Island. I went around searching for the right spot, till I found Sant'Antioco. Is the small city on the isle of the island. Sant'Antioco is the name of this small island and on it there are 2 small town, just right on the water. Those are Calasetta and Sant'antioco.
I choosed Sant'Antioco, is nice and there is people going around nearly all year. ...
... western views of the harbor below. We continued down past the Elephant Tower and the university reaching the ramparts of Bastion St Remy where we had a late lunch overlooking the harbor. Caffe Spiriti is normally packed during summer holiday, but we and two others were the only ones there. I has the local pasta, smaller than orzo and somewhat like couscous in a broth with shrimp with their heads still on and diced marlin. It was very tasty once I got ...
We all have a sleepin and Rory very kindly has given me his cold and I don't feel a hundred percent and skip brekkie. We can have a relaxing day today but we have to get packed and bags sorted as we have an early start in the morning our last day:-( as we are visiting Montserrat and then an airport transfer and we need to be ready to go by ...
... first time since arriving in Sardinia that we heard English, but it's not really surprising considering it is the biggest city on the island.
The plan for tomorrow is a short flight to Milan, followed by a train ride to Trieste in northeastern Italy. Let's hope this train journey works out better than the last one.
As for Sardinia, it will definitely be missed. ...
... practised his English on us.
One thing we have found in Sardinia is that one of the first things they say when they have asked where we are from is: 'ah such a long way'. He was really helpful though and suggested a trattoria in another alley. We had actually tried it earlier at 8.30 when the sign said it opened, but it was still closed. Much like Spain, there seems to be a type of siesta thing happening here but there are no set rules as some places ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Baia di Nora Pula
We've returned from the Baia di Nora and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a complete break. We did nothing for two weeks! But we needed it. Some may find it a bit boring, the only thing we had to think about was where to sit for dinner (until we had our table allocated for us for the remainder of our stay).
Have just returned from eight days at this hotel and really enjoyed the experience.Lovely hotel in spectacular gardens right on the beach.Good size rooms although the bathroom only had a somewhat cramped shower and no bath.Excellent staff in general although there is a somewhat authoritarian regime over the issue of extra towels for the beach/pool.However my complaint on this matter was personally and sympathetically dealt with by the manager.Stayed on a bed and breakfast basis so cannot comment on the lunch or dinner meals.Plenty to eat for breakfast from a comprehensive buffet.The nearby town of Pula is small and unpretentious in a charming way.There is a surprisingly wide selection of good ,reasonably priced restaurants in the town.I had hired a car from the airport and found this to be essential as the hotel is a bit out of town.Also it allowed several visits to the surrounding area including the city of Cagliari and excellent beaches at nearby Chia.Weather was excellent and it is somewhere that I would definately return to.
Arrived in mid September. Stepped off the plane into the middle of a thunder storm and it rained all day!!! Was really concerned that the weather was going to be disappointing at ths time of year but for the rest of the week, the sun shone and shone!!
My boyfriend and I have just got back from a week at the Baia di Nora. Whilst the hotel setting, pool and beach are faultless, the food was unbelievably bad, in fact it was probably the worst food I have ever been served in a hotel. I can only think that the food has gone significantly downhill since other people's reviews on this website, as there is absolutely no way that I would ever recommend anyone going to this hotel purely because the food was so bad. This is a shame, as we spent two weeks in Sardinia and all of the other restuarants we ate at had great food, and other than this, the hotel is good. Having paid for half board we ate in the Baia di Nora restaurant for 3 nights, and ended up going into Pula to local restaurants. Most of the other hotel guests did this, obviously showing that we were not alone in our thoughts on the incredibly poor food.
The hotel is set in the most idyllic location. It is set in a small bay with wonderful views of Nora on the right. The bedrooms were immaculately clean, amply proportioned with all the features you would require, air conditioning, comfortable beds, mini bar large bathroom which was suitable for disabled people as well. The whole complex was well designed in particular the bedrooms, in that the room attendants did not have to enter your room via the patio doors at the front, but by a rear entrance. The bedrooms overlooked the gardens and during our stay they were in full bloom and they were absolutely beautiful. The gardeners seemed to work everyday keeping them maintained and keeping them in fantastic condition.
My wife and I have just returned from staying at the Baia di Nora. The Hotel, its staff and especially the food and service was just incredible.
We stayed in a first floor standard room, with wonderful views across the gardens, very peaceful and relaxing.
We cannot thank all the hotel staff enough for making our holiday so enjoyable from the moment we arrived until ( sadly ) the end of our holiday.
Just a quick review for someone who wants a bit of class in an unspoilt area of sardinia. One of the friendliest hotels we have stayed in, the food is superb - really - and the mark-up on the wines not excessive (unlike some smart hotels). You need a car to explore and go past Chia for some stunning unspoilt wild beaches. The beach at the hotel is pleasant enough though. In seasoin I am sure the long beach becomes rather crowded but out of season it is almost empty except for families at weekends. We stayed a week and are definately going back next year before the mid/high season prices kick in. Great value then.
Fantastic food and nice beach
We are in our early thirties and were looking for a relazing beach holiday with good food. This hotel surpassed our expectations, especially with their food. Outstanding really!! The menu changes every day and the food is fresh and extremely tasty. It is not overcrowded and just soooooooooooo relaxing.
My friend and I went to the Baia Nora at the end of August 2004 for a chill out week. Neither of us had been to Sardinia before.
