Condo/Apartment
Cool white plaster walls, natural stone floors, a high ceiling, and traditional shuttered windows, lend a wonderful quality to the light in Casa Raffaela. The interior is a clever mix of modern and traditional furniture and art. Sitting on the edge of the Piazza del Teatro opposite Alghero's jewel of an opera house, you will sometimes find your long Italian lunch accompanied by the melodic strains of a music rehearsal....Cool white plaster walls, natural stone floors, a high ceiling, and traditional shuttered windows, lend a wonderful quality to the light in Casa Raffaela.

About the neighbourhood
In just 15 minutes from the airport you can be sitting on the ancient seawalls that border the tiny historic centre of Alghero, as you gaze upon a perfect piece of Mediterranean sea. Later in the day meander through tiny cobbled streets gazing up at old balconies, crumbling arches and laundry flapping in the breeze.

Although Alghero welcomes the tourist, we generally find it's the kind that has to get “off the beaten track” where possible, who wants to experience life as if they lived there and who isn’t afraid to try and talk to the locals… in their language. You will not find Irish-style replica pubs ...
