How to get to The Mansion on the Hill, Sardinia
20, Villagio Belvedere
Via Degli Anemoni
Two international airports and two seaports service the villa. ‘Easyjet fly direct from Gatwick to Olbia at 8:00 am (subject to timetable change) and British Airways fly direct from Heathrow to Olbia. The villa is less than 20 minutes from the airport.’
Ryanair fly from Stanstead to Alghero airport every day. From Alghero it’s an easy one and half hour drive to the Villa.
You can also fly via Rome or other mainland cities should you wish to split your holiday.
There are many car hire firms at the airports including Avis and Hertz. I have listed Two smaller companies below that offer a good value. But if you are flying with Easyjet its best to order your car via their website at the same time as booking your flight
