Simply Sardinia

Sardinia is a newer destination in the Single With Kids Calendar and offers something for all the family. White sands, clear seas and soothing sunshine with a stunning mountain backdrop.  We’re really making the most of the setting with our resort, which is located in the beautiful Bellavista natural park.

The largest Italian island in the Mediterranean Sea, Sardinia combines Italian flavour with its own local customs, traditions and cuisine.

Our holiday to this lovely location offers all inclusive board;  a choice of swimming pools; animation and entertainment;  a great spa and wellness facilities and a setting that is ‘simply Sardinia’.   The resort also has Kids Clubs that make the most of the natural setting, with a good selection of activities.

To keep this holiday at an accessible price, we are offering a number of room optionssee our accommodation page for more info.

Where we're staying

We’re heading to the fabulous Eastern province of Ogliastra for this holiday, in search of some of the best scenery Sardinia has to offer.This region is one of the most mountainous areas of the island and not as populated as other regions. Here you’ll find rivers, lakes and some of the most idyllic beaches on Sardinia.   The mountains provide the perfect backdrop to the crystal-clear blue seas as the coastline alternates between rocky cliffs and hidden coves of white sand.

Traditions and culture are still important across Sardinia and can be found in the towns and villages in Ogliastra. The cuisine is slightly different to mainland Italian dishes and we recommend you sample some of the delights while in Sardinia. Traditional soap making is also popular as well as other local crafts.

We are staying in the town of Arbatax for our Simply Sardinia holiday. Here you can best see the distinctive red rocks of this area or take boat tours to  view the abundance of marine life or visit the prehistoric sites in nearby Tortoli. Although white sandy beaches are aplenty, Spiaggia del Golfetto, the beach at the gulf of Tortoli, is particularly beautiful.

Our resort has been renovated and enhanced with new facilities.  It is designed to ensure you relax and enjoy your holiday with a focus on wellbeing. Combining sea and land the resort is located on the coast in a large nature park full of Sardinian plants and animals. You’re surrounded by beautiful Sardinian flora and can see Giara horses, fallow deer, Sardinian donkeys , ostriches and birds as well as a number of other native species. To ensure you unwind in this peaceful and natural environment, there is also a Wellness Centre and Spa for adults and a kids club offering a good selection of activities.

Please note – this area is hilly and we do not recommend this holiday for anyone with mobility issues.

" The girls and I have had a lovely time. The resort is lovely and feels very safe and honest. We were most impressed to get the iPhone returned after being lost two days in the sand! Food has been nice for an all inclusive – better than other resorts. Nice pools, great weather, lovely beaches. And well done Lynnsey – great coordinator! "

Emma, Hannah (Aged 6) & Isla (Aged 3) - (Sardinia 2017 )

" It’s been a really wonderful break – just what I needed! I have really enjoyed the chance to relax and wind-down and it’s been great to see my girls enjoying meeting new friends and having a great time too. I have really liked the resort – comfortable accommodation, great pools, food better than expected and great local beaches and it’s been good to do our own thing as well as doing things within the group. Lynnsey has been a brilliant coordinator – she’s lots of fun and kept us well informed as to what was happening. Thank you so much! "

Maria, Agnes (Age 7) & Alexander (Age 7) - (Sardinia 2017 )

Teresa & Sophie (Age 13) - (Sardinia 2017 )

" This is my fifth SWK trip abroad and again it has been a great trip. The whole group has been fun with a lovely mix of children and adults. My first trip with a real teenager but I have survived and my daughter has also had a good time. Lynnsey has been fab XX "

Kate, Megan (Age 12), Olivia (Age 10) & Ben (Age 6) - (Sardinia 2017 )

June & Olivia (Age 10) - (Sardinia 2017 )

" Having taken the ‘leap’ to do this after much deliberation and anxiety I’m so so pleased I made the decision to book. I have met some fab new friends and lovely people in the group. I’ve never felt so relaxed on a holiday for years. My daughter met some girls her own age, younger and older, and they got on like a house on fire! Lynnsey was fantastic! Would recommend and return "

Simon & Emily 12 - (Croatia 2016)

" A fantastic holiday in an idyllic location. Like the majority of the group, this was our first time with SWK. We picked the right holiday - match the destination with the age of the kids, most in our group were around 9-12ish. All the kids got on great straight away. That made it so much easier for the adults to relax, and I think we all got on really well as a result. I thoroughly recommend this destination and if like me you looked at this for a couple of years trying to decide if you wanted to join the club - do it now!!! Our highlight was not a trip or a sight, it was that the kids and the adults all got on so well. "

Joan & Alisha 15 - (Fuerteventura 2016)

" Our first SWK holiday and me and my daughter had a great time. The group and the host was friendly and welcoming, I fell ill for the last two days but the host was very caring. Thank you Elaine, very nice meeting you and the group. Good hosting.
"

Neil & Thomas 8, Lily 8 - (Portugal 2016)

" Good support and company from the rest of the group. Easy to dip in and out of activities. Really good time, great company for both children and adults "

Charlotte & Jake 9, Ella 6 - (Portugal 2016)

" I was very nervous about this holiday - booking it, travelling for it and being on it and it has been a wonderful process from start to finish. Your team are brilliant - its all so efficient and the communication is spot on. It was a proper family holiday (day trips, time around the pool, meals and drinks out and the kids met new friends and played and played and played...) I didn't once feel out of place as 'one parent' with the children because other families were in the same position - we were each others safety net. I've met new friends, had great chats and laughs and have thoroughly had a brilliant time. What a memory hey! My son gave the holiday 9 1/2 out of ten - the full marks were pipped at the post by the sun being too hot! I knew the holiday would be okay....I hoped that it would be good but honestly it was more than excellent! The accommodation, food, staff, atmosphere was perfect and sharing a holiday miles away from home with 15 other families that we have never met couldn't have worked out more relaxed, happy and fun than in my wildest dreams. Excellent coordination from start to finish. My children have thanked me for the 'best holiday ever' which says it all. Thanks so much "

Mick & Kristin 11 - (Fuerteventura 2016)

" It was heaven, and I got to share it with a bunch of angels, Kristin and I had a great time. Liked the hotel and the company. Elaine was great

"

John & Libby-Rose 8 - (Croatia 2016)

" We had a great time and would do it again. I played with my child in pool most of the day and then relaxed and had conversation with adults in the evening whilst my child played with her new friends. It was great "

Jo & Dan 15, Ben 12 - (Fuerteventura 2016)

" Thank you! Elaine and everyone. SWk made it really easy to get away for a completely stress free holiday. The hotel was safe and lovely. Having a group of friends around made you feel part of a group but not overwhelmed. It was a great combination of friendship, laughter and relaxation. The children found new friends and had some much needed independance in a lovely environment. Thank you it was EXACTLY what we needed "

Anita & Charlie 16, Frankie 13 - (Rhodes 2016)

" An amazing holiday for me and the children. Great times and great friendships formed. Thank you so much SWK, Very nice to be around people in the same situation as yourselves and all wanting to have a fab time "

Mark & Luna 9 - (Rhodes 2016)

" Why I would recommend it? For the people, the fact that the kids love it. It enables parents to have fun and have a relaxed time too "

Julie & Charlotte 18 Samuel 15 - (Menorca 2016)

" This holidays give such peace of mind to single parents. There is company for both the kids and adults, or you can choose to spend time on your own. There is no pressure to join on any of the activities. Sometimes, one of the hardest parts of being a single parent is having to make all decisions and arrangements on your own, but with a SWK holiday, much of this pressure is lifted. I come away feeling that I've had a proper break "

Lincoln & Emily 9 - (Menorca 2016)

" It's a great way for the children to mix and play with other children straight from the first day without having to hope they find someone and at the same time the parents have instant company as well. "

Matthew & Felix 9, Frederick 7, Gabriel 4 - (Portugal 2016)

" I think SWK is a great idea, especially for newly single parents like me and I will be going on more of your holidays over the coming years. Thank you very much! Great for parents and great for kids - can't say more than that. Brilliant time from start to finish and very well organised indeed by Claire who made us feel very welcome, sorted out any issues that we had and made sure that we were in the right place at the right time for the brilliant activities on offer. "

Lisa & Aida 15, Dominic 13 - (Portugal 2016)

" You're not on your own, isolated and struggling to entertain children on your own. It takes the pressure off and I had a very relaxing time (for a change!). Thank you. The hotel, seeing my daughter happy and laughing, spending time with nice people in the group, not being on my own of an evening and sharing meals and social times together whilst my children disappeared! Not having to think about sorting out food and meals and not having to carry money around with me for drinks etc. My children loved the independence of choosing their own food and drinks. Our coordinator Claire was absolutely fantastic and made the holiday trouble free and I didn't have to think too much! In fact without Claire it wouldn't have been half as good a holiday. Many thanks Claire, you're a star! "

Gwen & Hannah 14, Martin 12 - (Crete 2016)

" A fantastic concept - my first SWK trip and probably not my last. Excellent pre-booking experience too and staff helpful in guiding me in selecting best location for the age of my kids "
