Holidays on Sardinia's Costa Smeralda are often over-priced -- head a little further south and you'll find the Gulf of Oresei, described as "ruggedly gorgeous" by The New York Times. This offer from Citrus Holidays takes you there for £399 per person, saving 48% on the usual price.
In full, the deal includes return flights from London Gatwick or Luton, seven nights at the 4-star Cala Ginepro Hotel Resort and access to the wellness centre once per stay (worth £25 per person). Plus, you'll get daily breakfast and dinner for the same price as the hotel's usual B&B package.
Departures are in early autumn, when temperatures are at their most pleasant. Fly from London Gatwick on 21-29 September; or from Luton on 21, 25, 28 September; 5, 12, 19 October.
It's an additional £60 per person to depart from 15-20 September.
Child rates also apply: £299 for the first and second child aged under 12.
The Cala Ginepro Hotel Resort is eight miles from the town of Orosei, which has white-washed houses, winding cobbled streets and 12th-century castle ruins. The beaches at the nearby Bidderosa Nature Reserve are some of the best on the island and each is "more beautiful than the last", says Condé Nast Traveler. "One is surrounded by a forest of parasol pines, another has a gentle inlet for swimming and a third has a long stretch of eggshell-coloured sand."
Set on the quiet bay of Cala Ginepro, the resort is spread across Mediterranean gardens. The nearest white-sand beach is 300 metres away and there are two swimming pools, as well as a restaurant that serves traditional Sardinian cuisine.
Checked luggage and return transfers are not included and are from an extra £35 and £45 per person, respectively. Add fully comprehensive car hire from £149 for the entire duration.
