Sardinia (Italy)

Single Parent Beach Holiday:

Secluded Family-Run Hotel on Golden Sandy Beach

This solo family trip is currently not available. Please visit single parent holidays in Italy for current dates and details of our Italy trips.

Our single parent holiday in Italy is the perfect holiday for single parent families looking for relaxation, in a location away from the tourist masses.

Our family run 3-star hotel Baja Azzurra is located near the small village of Barisardo on the eastern coast of Sardinia. The beautiful bay of ‘Torre de Bari’, with its secluded golden sandy beach and stunning crystal-clear waters, is only stone’s throw away. The hotel Baja Azzurra has just 21 rooms, all newly and beautifully renovated and the owners are very friendly – so you will feel instantly at home. There is plenty to keep you and the children entertained, from the lovely gardens with olive trees and play area to the swimming pool, small tennis court and pool table. The rooms are air conditioned and have en suite bathroom, telephone, satellite TV, hairdryer, refrigerator, WiFi and a balcony or terrace with views of the surrounding gardens or pool.

Breakfast is buffet style, while dinner is served as a 3-course meal with focus on fresh local produce and authentic Sardinian dishes. The hotel boasts its own vegetable garden providing the kitchen with fresh vegetables every day, and a bar where parents can enjoy a drink together after dinner.

Sardinia lies in the central Mediterranean Sea, and at 24,090 square kilometres in size, it is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean, after Sicily and before Cyprus. The island is an autonomous region of Italy. Alongside Italian, the island has its own language, Sardu, a distinct branch of the Romance languages rather than a dialect of Italian, with strong Catalan and Spanish influences.

Sardinia is rich in history and boasts over 7,000 prehistoric archaeological sites dating back to 1,500 B.C.. The island is often described as an open-air museum. Sardinia is largely unspoilt by mass tourism, and 25% of the land has been designated as national parkland or wildlife reserves.

Barisardo is a small town in Ogliastra on the eastern coast of Sardinia, famed for its wild countryside, unspoilt beaches and crystal-clear waters. Barisardo is located inland from the bay of ‘Torre di Barì’, and overlooked by the Spanish tower of the same name. Ogliastra is the most mountainous region of Sardinia with mountains rising to over 1000 meters. Consequently it is the least-populated and most unspoilt region of the island.

Below is a selection of testimonials from our single with kids holidays in Sardinia:

"I was quite hesitant to book this holiday for me and my 9 year old daughter as I was apprehensive of going on holiday alone with people I hadn't met. However it was the best decision I've made and the best holiday I've had in over 10 years. All the people on my trip were amazing and we got on extremely well. Fantastic experience, I'd do it again next year and would highly recommend. "

"Lovely authentically Sardinian hotel with delicious food. The owners couldn’t do enough for our group including commandeering their whole family to ferry us around to activities. We had the pool practically to ourselves and the idyllic beach and restaurants were less than 5 minutes walk away. Good choice of activities and the horse riding lesson was a big hit with children and adults. Andrea was a fantastic host. Would definitely recommend this holiday."
