Villasimius Holidays

On Sardinia’s southern coastline lies Villasimius – the island’s number one beach destination, and one of Italy’s most breathtaking locations. Here, you’ll find pure white sands and dazzling azure waters, not to mention beautiful pine-clad hills rising majestically above the town. 

The town itself is a low-key affair. Take to the streets to peruse the colourful local shops, choose a restaurant to dine in or head to one of the nearby beaches for a day by the sea. Some of the best include Porto Giunco – a TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice award winner, Spiaggi del Giunco o Notteri – a porcelain-white beach with a great laid-back cafe, and the Spiaggia di Campulongo, best known for its magnificent sand dunes.

For the adventurous, Cagliari is approximately 30 miles away, and offers visitors a dramatic mix of historic sights, lively bars and sea views. Try to book a boat trip to really appreciate the beauty of this town – it tumbles from the hilltop to the sea in a dramatic fashion, with gold walls and terracotta roofs glowing in the sunshine.

Flight Information

When to go

Sardinia is a summer destination, with the season generally running from May to early October. Temperatures are at their hottest in July and August and this is when the towns and beaches are at their busiest. However, Sardinia also enjoys a mild climate in spring and autumn with temperatures rarely going beneath 20 degrees which makes it perfect for visiting at the beginning or end of season too. May, June and September are ideal months to visit for those wanting to avoid the busiest crowds and still enjoy warm weather. 

Visa Information

At the current time, British citizens do not require a visa to visit Italy.


Whilst tipping isn’t embedded into Italian culture it is always appreciated as an acknowledgement of good service. Nowadays people generally round up a bill in a bar or cafe and leave 5-10% extra on a restaurant bill. Taxi bills are usually also rounded up.
On guided tours/excursions, it is customary to leave a token of appreciation for the driver and guide.
On small group escorted tours, it is customary to leave a token of appreciation for the driver and guide at the end of the tour.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Italy is Italian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
