Holiday Information

Our La Costa Verde short break is a superb self guided mountain bike holiday in Italy for those with limited time and looking to be a little more independent. With its white sandy beaches, crystal clear emerald waters, ancient watchtowers and some of the best coastline that the Mediterranean has to offer, South West Sardinia is a rare gem.
Rising up from the sandy coastline are the ever present mountains, with winding trails and forest tracks, leading you into the lush wooded regions of this sparsely populated part of the island. Equipped with detailed road books and maps, you can explore the delights of this part of the island, with the option each day of rewarding yourself with a dip in the sea.
Taking your time, you’ll be able to enjoy some fun undulating trails, riding into the surrounding mountain regions as well as down to the coast. Combine this with the delicious local cuisine and wine, this will be a Skedaddle holiday to savour.
Being centre based in the quiet mountain town of Montevecchio allows you to make the most of your time away with the convenience of returning to the same agriturismo each day for a friendly welcome and tasty home cooked meals. 
Add to the mix, miles of trails and you’ve the perfect mountain bike playground, and it is easy to see why this trip is the obvious choice for those short on time. If you like the sound of  La Costa Verde short break but have some more time to spare, just let us know and we can add extra days to build a trip that suits you. We offer a longer version of this self guided trip, along with a fully guided version.
If you're looking for something more challenging in this area, take a look at our guided Costa Verde Singletrack trip.
If you have a day or two to spare why not extend your trip with some trekking or sea kayaking. Our local team can join you for a day’s guiding or we can provide the information and equipment to allow you to enjoy the routes self-guided, just give us a call for further info.
