There are many excellent Chia hotels – whatever your travel needs, whatever your budget, you are bound to find something suitable.
Chia is the marine hamlet of Domus de Maria, a small town located in the south-western part of Sardinia, approximately 50 kilometers (31 miles) from Cagliari, Sardinia’s capital city. Its territory is characterized by different type of sceneries, from the rocky slopes of the mountains of Sulcis, to the salt ponds where pink flamingos live.
But, most of all, Chia is renowned for its crystal-clear waters which turned it into one of the most popular summer holiday destinations in Sardinia. There are many beaches that are worth visiting – among them Su Giudeu and Cala Cipolla definitely need to be mentioned. Chia was also quoted by The Guardian as one of 40 beautiful European beaches! They chose a few beaches per country, and as far as Italy is concerned, they decided to mention Sa Colonia Beach, in Chia – and let me tell you, they were right doing so: it’s a gorgeous place!
Furthermore, there are several historical sites worth visiting near Chia. Chia itself was probably a Nuragic settlement, then it became a crucial Phoenician outpost and, in time, a Roman settlement, known by the name of Bithia. Nowadays, it is possible to visit the ruins of Bithia, which were fortuitously discovered after a storm.
Chia is not only the perfect place for those who want to enjoy golden sand and clear waters, but also for people who like archeology and outdoor activities. There are many possibilities, including hiking, horse riding, bike tours, boat tours of the beaches, and snorkeling. For instance, the Roman Road that connects the ancient town of Nora to Bithia is something not to be missed. Other places you shouldn’t miss are the tower of Chia and the nearby Is Cannoneris forest, which is the largest oak forest in Europe.
If you are interested in visiting this area, you will need a place to stay where rest after your days at the beach or after your tours of the beautiful places this area has offers. Don’t know where to star looking? Don’t worry! I know the area really well and have decided to select the best Chia hotels to make your life easier.
