A travel expert for leading UK newspaper The Telegraph has recently utilised the periodical’s website to answer a reader’s query about the best way to book holidays in Sardinia in the off-season, specifically in autumn.

The reader in question was planning family holidays to Sardinia for herself, her husband, and two small children, and her query regarded pricing and availability of accommodation in the region during that time of the year. This is a pertinent question, since that region of Italy does not have a year-round tourist season, with most services closing at the end of September. As such, both flight and accommodation availability are rather limited for the period the reader in question was considering (October, to coincide with the British school calendar’s winter half-term).

However, according to the feature writer, it is by no means impossible to enjoy holidays in Sardinia in the off-season. While less frequent than during the peak season, flights to this region of Italy are still readily available, with two leading low-cost companies both offering direct flights and several others offering options with stops in Milan or Rome.

Similarly, the travel expert states, it is not impossible to find suitable accommodation in Sardinia during this time of year. Though most of the hotels will have closed in late September, visitors wanting to enjoy an authentic Italian experience, far from the madding crowd, may still be able to stay in the region through tailor-made holiday packages. Readers are advised to consult a specialist holiday provider, since these companies tend to offer all-inclusive packages (usually with villa accommodation) all year round.

Sardinia is considered by many to be best enjoyed in the off-season, since the focus is taken away from tourism. This allows visitors to the area during autumn or winter to experience something closer to the true Italian lifestyle, provided the weather is conducive to exploration and the usual array of holiday activities.
