The Enchanting Island of Maddalena, Sardinia, Italy
Stunning, stunning, stunning………. When we were informed that our holiday on a Gullet Cruise around Croatia had been cancelled, 4 days before we were due to fly it was all systems go to find an alternative venue with flights the same day as the original. The norm, we could get the hotel but not the flights or flights but not hotel. Oh, and one condition it had to be somewhere warm. Mmmm the weather forecast wasn’t brilliant in many parts of Europe and search became more limited. Alas there it was a beautiful hotel in Sardinia, the forecast promised good weather and flights were available.
What we didn’t realise was that Maddalena was a small island off Sardinia and accessible via ferry. After lugging heavy luggage up narrow stairs on the ferry we sat in anticipation as to what we were going to find. We fell in love with the Island the minute we stepped onto the ground, the people were warm, welcoming and helpful and the scenery was just breath taking. I looked forward to taking my camera and going out into the wilderness.
The quaint Italian town of Maddalena was typical Italian with an abundance of eateries and drinking establishments, not to mention the amazing ice-cream parlours, something for all.
