Sardinia - Advice - Where to goHello,
I'm trying to set up our holidays in Sardinia and I am struggling a little bit. Let's see if someone can give me a hand.
We will be staying in the island for 14 nights, flying into Olbia. We have two young daughters (3 & 5) who are generally OK with spending time in the car, but up to a limit obviously and I don't want to wear them out.
We want to combine beaches which my girls can enjoy with seeing cities / small towns and beautiful landscapes (which is what I enjoy). We want to escape from the masses but without being too on our own, i.e. somewhere were we are 20 km radius of a place with a bit of life and choice max.
My questions would be:
1) Should we go for 2 locations (7 nights each) or 3 (5, 5, 4 or similar)? We don't want to split it thinner because with two small girls it would be a bit too hard. We are not biased to north or south or whatever, at the end of the day we have never been to Sardinia and no one is saying this will be the last time we go...
2) Based on your suggestion for 1) which areas would you recommend?
Depending on your answers I might feel tempted to ask a few more questions :-)
Thanks very much in advance. I know a bit about Umbria and Spain and I'm living in London, so I would be happy to try to help as well.

1Are you also flying out of Olbia?
I have an up coming 14 day trip to Sardinia and I am taking a 3 way split of 4 nights Cagliari (where I arrive) the 6 nights Alghero, then 4 nights Cala Gonone, then fly out of Olbia. We will have our own car and with mostly main roads I think this will be easily doable, give access to many parts of the island for easy day trips if desired but also have enough to see/do without getting in the car and those areas all have enough tourist infrastructure to make the trip easy but interesting and a mix of beache.s plus sights. In Cagliari I have booked B&B rooms, in Alghero for the longer stay an apartment so we can make our own meals if we want and have a bit more room to relax, then a hotel for the final stay at Cala Gonone. Lots of choices at all three.
Hope this is some help for you

2I just did the Civitavecchia - Olbia in July 2013 and it took 5.5 hours! We booked our tickets well in advance via http://www.mobylines.com/ in order to get the best deal! GUESS WHAT?!!!
we paid euro220 for 3 tickets and upon arrival to the port the price was ONLY euro30 per ticket. A total of euro90 (we paid euro220). It is a huge ferry boat, 9 floors, hundreds of FREE seats. This was simply a rip-off.
frustrated I wrote an email to the company and here is there reply:
As we ´re only intwermediators for tickest, we do not share the process of pricing but must respect what was decides by MOBY S P A – Miland.
We seldomly see falling of prices but in fact it happens. We regret but must state that a refund on a used ticket was never possible. We as well must state that you by payment and by confirmation of booking approved the offer.
We regret – MOBY Lines Europe can not do nothing on your matter.
