When is the best time to house hunt in Sardinia

Sardinia has a mild short winter and a long hot dry summer and seems to experience a second spring in October when plants and flowers return from the summer heat.

The year round good weather allows plenty of outdoor activities both on the coast and inland: from mountain biking in the wild hills to kite surfing in the crystal clear sea or simply relaxing on the warm sand of your favorite beach.

The best times to view properties in Sardinia are the spring and the autumn periods when temperatures are mild or pleasantly warm. March to May and September to early November are advisable.

Even the winter is quite mild and sunny most of the time.

We do not recommend viewings during August, it can be very hot and as this is the holiday period for most Italians, both agents and owners often down tools and are unavailable especially the closer to the middle of august when Ferragosto (the main Italian national holiday) kicks in.

If you want to combine house hunting with a beach holiday then June to July is the perfect time, less tourists, cleaner beaches and warm clear water.
