Less than £1,000 a week: Sizzling Sardinia
Deep in countryside in the north of Sardinia, yet close enough to beaches for day trips, Villa L'Arco has a tucked-away feel on a hillside. There's a lovely garden with a swimming pool, a 'hydromassage' pool and a terrace for sundowners.
The villa's interior is simple and homely in style. It has a kitchen with a large dining table, two bedrooms and a sofa-bed. The village of Bassacutena, two miles away, has a little café, bar and shops.
Details: Seven nights from £699 to £1,899, sleeps up to seven; nearest airport, Olbia (BA, Easyjet), is 28 miles away Tel. 01202 484858 www.justsardinia.co.uk
