We stayed in Via Principe Umberto for 2 weeks in July. Our group was made up of myself, my mum and my sister for one week and myself, my mum and my husband for week number 2.
From the outset I found Antonia extremely efficient, friendly and helpful. We were provided with plenty of information about the apartment, it's location and the surrounding areas. Antonia contacted me personally once booking was complete to ensure we had all the information we needed. This really helped the whole holiday run smoothly.
The key pick up was smooth and we were shown round the apartment on arrival and provided with information on how to use the hot water etc.
In the apartment was a wonderfully helpful folder with maps, details of restaurants and excursions and all the info on the appliances within the apartment.
The location of the apartment is just perfect. We have stayed in Centro Storico previously on Via Carlo Alberto and so knew where we wanted to be. It was a lovely short walk to the old walls surrounding the town which are home to several fantastic restaurants. It is a short walk to the supermarket, other shops and many many restaurants.
The apartment itself was a fantastic size. There was a point where all four of us were staying there and there was ample room. The bathroom was fantasticly huge, the bedrooms and living room large and the kitchen (although we used it rarely) was perfectly spacious.
We spent most of our days at the beach, which was a leisurely 15-20 minute walk away. I have to point out that there are closer beaches, but we had previously discovered our favourite and return there each time!
We spent most of our evenings sampling the delicious Sardinian food on offer and exploring the cobbled old streets and people watching from our favourite bar!
The street noise on an evening and early in the morning throughout the entire Centro Storico is quite loud. During summer the rubbish collection is done daily (which is wonderful) but unfortunately this disturbed our sleep in the early mornings. HOWEVER I must also point out that you will not find an apartment in the old town that does not have this problem.
All in all we had a wonderful time in Alghero and this apartment was the perfect base for exploring the cobbled streets on an evening. I would recommend Alghero and Via Principe Umberto to all my friends!

We stayed at the flat as a group of five friends. From the outset, the communication with Antonia, the flat owner, was fantastic. She offered help and advice and answered all our queries very promptly. This goes also to manager who met us at the flat. Thank you very much for being so nice and accommodating.
Being in the very centre of the old town, the location of the flat is second to none. All the above, coupled with the flat's amenities and spacious layout, this is the absolute perfect choice for anyone seeking a comfortable, relaxing and fun stay in Alghero. The perfect location also means that you don't need a car to get around and enjoy the local amenities that the place has to offer.
We had the most wonderful stay in Alghero and in the flat and would highly recommend to anyone.
