To say Villasimius is to say pristine and wild beaches and coast, barely touched by the birth of services that have the effect of making it, if possible, even more beautiful. But to say Villasimius is above all to say discovery, the one reserved for visitors who, once you reach the small seaside village, they realize that this corner of Sardinia is the sea, ma anche favoloso entroterra colorato di verdi smaglianti e azzurri brillanti.

La pittoresca Villasimius è una cartolina di paesaggi costieri e collinari, che mette a disposizione archeologia, storia, escursioni naturalistiche, cultura ma anche gastronomia. E’ la sua varietà a renderla bella da esplorare d’estate, but also during spring and autumn.

Overlooking the southeastern end of the island, Villasimius resembles in shape a coastal triangle kissed by a clean and crystalline sea and bordered by beaches that are fixed in the memory: Capo Boi to the west, Capo Carbonara to the south and Punta Porceddus to the east are fabulous examples. The north, on the other hand, is sprinkled with the green of the Mediterranean scrub that gnaws at the Sarrabus mountains and the Sette Fratelli massif, naturalistic oasis that it would be a real shame to get lost.

The country

Endowed with traditions and historical memory, Villasimius is an ancient settlement, inhabited all year round, which offers not only purely tourist attractions, but gives the visitor a glimpse of island life.

Well populated is in its center, both in the surroundings, Villasimius and its historic heart develop along the main avenue known as Umberto I, embellished by two squares around which the life of the town is concentrated: piazza Incani and Gramsci.

Once past the squares, the street continues changing its name to Via del Mare probably because those who have the patience to go through it in its entirety, on foot or by bike, it will directly reach the sea and the beach of Simius.

During the summer season, from early dusk, the Via del Mare dresses up for the party, it is totally closed to traffic and dedicated exclusively to visitors, allo shopping, at shows, and long walks. Numerous craft shops overlook the pedestrian area, of typical gastronomic specialities, of clothing, restaurants but also pizzerias and clubs.

Also in the morning Via del Mare is particularly lively and Piazza Gramsci, which houses not only the Town Hall and the Church, but also many cafes, becomes a favorite destination for those who want to have breakfast in the sun, read a newspaper, have a chat or just relax.

In a small side street of Via Umberto I, the suggestive via Frau, there is the Archaeological Museum which is worth a visit, especially if you are eager to discover the rich history of the area. On Saturday instead in Via Donatello, a few steps from Via Umberto the weekly market is held with many stalls displaying all kinds of goods.
