Portolaconia Residence

Sardinia - Cannigione
New addition for 2020.
Portolaconia Residence is part of the Tanca Manna complex and is situated 30 kilometres north of Olbia on the north east coast of Sardinia between Cannigione and Palau.  The whole complex, built in the 80s, is on a hillside facing the sea, with Portolaconia Residence on one of the lower terraces, close to the Piazzetta where, from June to mid September you will find a bar, restaurant, launderette, and also a supermarket (April to October)  that sells gluten free products. 
The residence is surrounded by green Mediterranean vegetation that in spring becomes one mass of bright yellow mimosa and broom. There are 106 apartments laid out in terraced blocks, each with its own independent entrance, ground floor with a covered patio and garden, or steps up to mezzanine and first floor apartments each with a covered terrace and tables and chairs to be able to enjoy the views to the sea while eating outside. There are several different apartment types ranging from studio apartments for 2 up to larger apartments for 4,5 or 6 persons with a double bedroom and second bedroom with 2 or 3 beds and if needed a sofa bed available in the living room. There are a few steps in all the apartments except the studio.  The small kitchens have 4 gas rings, sink, large fridge with small freezer, and on request you can rent a microwave oven for your stay.  I have also requested that there be a toaster available to be used for toasting gluten free bread only and should be requested on arrival at reception and returned (without crumbs)  before departure.  The bathrooms are all with shower/wc and there is free Wifi throughout the units. Due to flight arrival times it may be possible to check in earlier/later than the standard times shown above.

From Portolaconia Residence you can reach the beach in front of the complex on foot in a few minutes. However if you don't want to walk during the hotter summer months you can book the 3 wheeler Ape taxi service and even be picked up/dropped back at your apartment for €1,50 per person each way!  For lovers of watersports there is windsurfing, sailing, canoeing, scuba diving and snorkelling. If you prefer other kinds of sports then there’s also tennis, horse riding and golf nearby.
In nearby Cannigione you will find several restaurants that advertise as having gluten free options:  The nearest, La Vecchia Lampara is just 1.5 kms, and the others, Da Serafino e Giovanni (pizzas), La Sciumara e La Zattera between 2.5 to 3km. 

 

For those who are looking for a relaxing holiday Sardinia is the perfect place.  You can't help but enjoy the crystal clear water, the beautiful sandy beaches or small rocky coves along the coast just waiting to be discovered.  There are also daily boat trips to the small islands that make up the Archipelago of La Maddalena or you can go inland and discover ancient traditions and visit small hamlets that seem to belong to another era.  However, if you prefer 'the high life' you will find that too!  Just a few kilometres drive is Porto Cervo the centre of the famous 'Costa Smeralda' with its shops bars and famous night clubs and also Baia Sardinia.  To the north is the town of Palau, Capo D'Orso and the island of La Maddalena. 
The centre of Cannigione is just 2.5kms from the residence and has plenty of bars, shops, restaurants, and chemist and in the evenings throughout the summer a local handicraft market along the road by the harbour and sea front.  There is a local bus service several times per day which will take you from Tanca Manna into Cannigione and return.  What is even better several of those times are late afternoon and evening so that you could easily bus into the town, enjoy an aperitivo, dinner, a stroll and still get a bus back to the residence. You will find local morning markets in Cannigione on Monday, Arzachena on Wednesday, San Pantaleo on Thursday and Palau on Friday.

How to arrive
Olbia airport: 31 kms. (flights with Easyjet from Bristol, Luton, Gatwick and Manchester).   North west Sardinia: Alghero - but a 2 hour drive!
From Olbia airport turn left towards Olbia and stay on the main road following signs to Arzachena/Palau on the SS125.  Travel northwards and a few kilometers before Arzachena turn right to Cannigione.  Go through Cannigione village and Laconia and after 2.5kms you arrive at Villaggio Tanca Manna and Portolaconia Residence on the left hand side.
Reception is near the first car park.
There is also a dual carriageway that you can take shortly after leaving the airport  that will take you right round the outside of Olbia and then north towards Arzachena and Palau.   I only found it on my return to the airport as it was signposted to the airport already north of Olbia!
