Villasimius is a charming fusion of picturesque beaches, hip nightlife and historical culture: the former fishing village on the south-west tip of Sardinia is guaranteed to impress with its bays, chic clubs and typical Sardinian way of life. The piazza at the heart of the village unveils the authentic, Mediterranean character of Villasimius – and inspired Ernst Jünger to write his novel Am Sarazenenturm here back in the 1960s. Dating back to the 17th century, the old Fortezza Vecchia fortress stands proudly over the harbour. Nowadays, it hosts art exhibitions for the public to admire.
A string of stunning beaches and secluded bays makes the stretch of coastline one of the most beautiful in Sardinia for those who enjoy a swim. Shopping fans will be delighted with the plethora of pretty little shops. Once the sun sets on Villasimius, the night owls emerge – in the many restaurants, bars and clubs, the Sardinian night often only ends as day breaks and the sun gently rises over the sea.
Especially in July and August, this is paradise for those looking for lively nightlife. Numerous hotels, restaurants, pizzerias and upmarket shops round off the leisure options.
