There is a locally based taxi service which runs a minibus shuttle service to and from Cagliari airport throughout the day. A scheduled shuttle service is available which runs to a fixed time table twice daily. If guests flight arrival time is on or around the scheduled shuttle service time then this is a very affordable way of transferring to the ferry port for groups of four and under, tickets costing 15 euro per person. If however, your flight arrival time does not coincide with the scheduled service we can arrange for a private shuttle service to transfer you from Cagliari airport to the ferry port. This service costs 80 euro and the transfer can take up to eight people. This is a very cost-effective and convenient way for larger groups.
The last leg of your journey is a short ferry ride, departing from either Portovesme in the Southwest of Sardinia or Calasetta village on the island of Sant`Antioco. The views of the island are stunning, and as you sail closer the fragrant floras begin to fill the air. This part of the journey always lifts the spirits of the weary traveler, building the excitement, as your holiday slowly becomes within reach.
The ferries dock within the harbor of Carloforte and deposit you in the heart of the town, where you will find cafe`s, bars, and restaurants, serving the most excellent Italian refreshments, a perfect way to end to your days travel.
