What a wonderful family run pensione!!! Its about 10 minutes out from Alghero town towards the airport (5 minutes from the airport) on a beautiful little olive estate -- where most of the estate BnB's are situated. The place is immaculate -- very large rooms, a beautiful upstairs veranda, and a nice downstairs covered one too. They offer up a fully serviced kitchen and dining area, which is only for the guests' use as they have their own residence, which is particularly nice to store food, or make lunches.
They provide a full breakfast -- not just coffee and bread, but fruits, cereals, eggs, cold meats and cheeses, juices.... etc. Such hospitality was so amazing and really on par with any of the locals in Sardinia, though they are actually a Hungarian family.
They gave us plenty of tips on where to go and see on the North side of the island -- though we added to that list by asking the locals en route to the places they recommended.
It was a wee bit difficult to find at first -- my advice follow the signs for Villa las Rosas, as they take you right there from the highway!!! or plug the address into GPS -- once you know they way its remarkably easy to get to.
Its a great location for exploring the north of the Island -- you don't have to fight the traffic of Alghero to get away (and yes, there is a lot of traffic in the little town, especially by the water). Its about 40 minutes to Stintino / La Perosa, 30 minutes to Pto. Torres, 40 minutes to the beaches between Pto. Torres and Castelsardo, 90 minutes (depending on traffic) to Sta. Teresa and the beaches near the North East, 30 minutes to Bosa (south), 10 minutes to Fertilia or the center of Alghero.
We only wish they had wifi, but I am sure by next year they probably will figure that out.
You definitely need a car if you stay there, but that is the same regardless of where you stay in Alghero if you plan on seeing any of the surrounding area. You can take ARST busses (or the train) both REALLY cheap alternatives (think 2/3 euros one way), but they aren't as convenient as you might want.
A car is a definite must in Sardinia!!!!
