Flumini is a peaceful seaside town on the southeast coast of Sardinia, the most lived-in and distinctly Italian coast of the island. Just a 30-minute drive from the capital of Cagliari, with its airport and bustling harbour, Flumini is a true slice of paradise, with white sand beaches lapped by brilliant blue seas and a scattering of charming restaurants and bars. Choose a villa in Flumini to be close to the exciting capital with its vertiginous lanes, fantastic shops, restaurants, museums and historical sites, but also to experience a peaceful and idyllic seaside town where life slows down. Flumini has fantastic beaches – Sant'Andrea and Quartu St Elena – and our villas in Flumini are all found near the coast and the handful of charming local restaurants that line the seafront.
Things to do in Flumini
Flumini itself is a laid-back seaside town, home to a long white sandy beach and a handful of small local restaurants and shops. Our villas in Flumini are all dotted around the beach and within an easy walk of the restaurants, which include pizzerias and family-run trattorias. While Flumini itself is sleepy and idyllic, it's just a short drive from buzzing Cagliari, the capital of Sardinia and the most Italian city on the island. In Cagliari, you'll find quirky and international shops, a cobbled vertiginous old town, a palm-fringed seafront promenade and a maze of backstreets hiding museums and restaurants. Top sights in Cagliari – a stone's throw from your Flumini villa – include the grand citadel of the Bastion Saint Remy, Cathedral of St Mary the Assumption and Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Cagliari with its bronze, Byzantine and Roman artefacts. Back in Flumini, spend your days soaking up the scorching Sardinian sun, and lolling on the white sands of Sant'Andrea beach – with many more just a short drive away. If you're looking for lazy days, we recommend a Flumini villa with a private pool.
You will also find opportunities for watersports, off-road adventures and wine tasting nearby. A villa holiday in Flumini is ideal for families, couples and groups of friends, and many of our villas in Flumini come with a private pool.
History and Culture in Flumini
While Flumini itself is an idyllic and peaceful seaside town, it benefits from the prime position of being close to Sardinia's world-famous capital – exciting and historical Cagliari. History and culture lovers will go mad for Cagliari's time-worn streets, hiding basilicas, galleries, museums and archaeological treasures. Top sites in Cagliari – just a short drive from your Flumini villa - include the renowned Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Cagliari, which has bronze objects, Roman ceramics and artefacts from the Byzantine and Nuragic age. Also in Cagliari, the fortified Bastione Saint Remy, the medieval Castle of San Michele and the Cathedral of St Mary the Assumption, lording over the Piazza Palazzo. Closer to home, it's worth a wander to the 'area archeologica villa Romana, a handful of old stone walls found right on the beach in Flumini.
Family holidays in Flumini
Flumini is a fantastic destination for a villa holiday in Sardinia, near the capital of Cagliari yet its own little world of peace and tranquillity. Groups staying in our family villas will love the sprawling beach, which is actually an extension of Poetto - Cagliari's main beach. Enjoy the soft white sands and warm shallow waters, and facilities like beach bars, umbrellas and sunbeds. From your villa in Flumini it's also an easy drive to the handful of waterparks in the area, which make for a fantastic family day out. Near your Flumini family villa you'll find the Diverland waterpark (the biggest in Sardinia) and BluFan Parco Acquatico, with its slides, pirate ship and water cannons. Keep the kids entertained at all times with one of our family villas in Flumini with a private pool, all located just a short walk into town.
Adventurous activities in Flumini
Sitting on the picturesque shores of the Mediterranean, Flumini offers a wealth of opportunities for watersports, on its main beach and the lively Poetto beach nearby. Poetto is famous for its wind and kite surfing spots, and many championships frequently take place on the beach. There are also dozens of tour operators offering anything from cliff diving excursions and sailings to sea kayaking and searches for hidden beaches. Prefer to stay dry? Our villas in Flumini are near operators offering mountain biking, 4x4 off-road tours, quad bike and ATV tours, while in Cagliari you can book onto Segway tours of the city.
Romance in Flumini
Sunbathing on white sands, dining on a twinkling waterfront overlooking the Med and exploring a historic and romantic Italian capital, you can do it all on a couple's villa holiday in Flumini. Our couple's villas are all near the handful of local restaurants that line the beach in Flumini – most offering gorgeous views of the bay – and it's also easy to take a taxi into the city for a romantic date night in the old town, sitting in the shadows of the Bastion Saint Remy and under washing lines. Spend a day sunbathing before enjoying a sunset cruise or head inland to the many wineries in the region for a romantic day of touring and tasting, surrounded by vines, mountains and olive groves.
