Villasimius Beach Stay

Once a serene finishing village surrounded by pine forests and Mediterranean scrub, Villasimius has since grown into one of Sardinia?s most beloved southern resorts, ideal for exploring the magnificent beach fronts dotted along the coast. Following your 10 day tour, this 3 night extension provides you with the perfect opportunity to switch off and unwind.

Following breakfast depart Oristano for a half day tour of Bosa, a rainbow townscape of pastel houses cascading along the hillside. The highlight of today's tour is undoubtedly the 12th century Castello Malaspina, a hilltop castle that commands stunning panoramic vistas across the town and towards the palm shaded riverfront. You will also have the opportunity to inspect the ancient Nuaghe Antine, a cylindrical megalithic edifice and former defence tower dating back to the 15th century.

This afternoon, you have the option of boarding a boat to Grotta di Nettuno, where you will tour the cave network famed for its ethereal composition of mesmerising stalactites and stalagmites.
