.De Woning is gelegen op 15 minuten van de belangrijkste luchthaven (Olbia) in Sardinië de noordoostelijke kust van de meest spectaculaire en wenselijk plek, letterlijk in de voorkant van de eilanden Tavolara en Molara nationaal park. Rechts boven de beroemde rots van 'la tartaruga' [de schildpad] met de meest geweldige stranden recht beneden.
Het huis is een van de eerste gebouwd in dat gebied, is het sindsdien verbouwd en gerenoveerd, behoud van zijn oorspronkelijke charme en 360 graden vrij uitzicht.
Naar het huis van de dichtstbijzijnde dorp Monte Petrosu, die restaurants en markten heeft te bereiken, moet je 2 kilometer rijden op een onverharde weg en via een eigen poort, eenmaal daar bent u in waar paradijs. Het is een prive-gemeenschap met eigen stranden.
Het dichtstbijzijnde strand ligt onder het huis op slechts 2 minuten lopen die u naar ongerepte witte zandstranden en fenomenale gebeeldhouwde granieten inhammen van de natuur.
Adembenemend uitzicht: De woning is gelegen in een van de mooiste en meest schilderachtige plekjes van Sardina's North East Coast, recht tegenover de eilanden Tavolara en Molara, die een wild leven heiligdom en een uitgestrekt beschermd marien nationaal park zijn.
A comfortable character cottage in an enviable setting amongst the pines trees with exceptional views and not overlooked. Well maintained, clean and well equipped with new high-end appliances and recently refurbished bathrooms. The house has a very homely feel with books and pictures and is nothing like so many dull rental properties with the usual 6 cups, 6 plates etc scenario. Great communication with Pietro throughout the booking process and it was lovely to meet him and his family at the property at the start of our stay. The clean small beach below the property is accessed via a number of steps and across a quiet narrow 'no through' private road which services a few properties below the cottage. We were a party of 3 adults and 3 young children ages 8, 5 and 2. Even in high season the area is quiet, particularly at night which aided a very restful sleep. Perhaps one thing to consider is the number of steps / levels around the property if you are infirm or have young toddlers; having said that, we managed fine with our 2 year old. Overall a great 'No shoes / no news' relaxing holiday and we hope to return.
My wife and I heard about how beautiful Sardinia was and decided to visit to see the pristine waters and beaches - we were not disappointed! Pietro was very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed for the duration of our stay. The location of the house was amazing, which made for gorgeous views of the sunset over the Mediterranean and the village private beach was literally just steps away from the house. The house itself was well kept and clean, and all had necessary appliances in working order. We were so happy during our stay, but very sad to leave! We would love to come back here with our kids.
This house is heaven on earth! I loved every minute that I spent here. The elegant simplicity of the furnishings and beautiful terrace make for the perfect vacation. It is exactly the aesthetic you hope for in a house by the sea. Also, the kitchen and bathrooms seemed newly renovated which was great and it was very clean. I loved the accessories and personal touches around the house and outside. It made me feel very much at home. The view is amazing! We spent hours sitting and eating on the terrace, and never missed the sun set. The garden too is beautiful, we felt nestled and very private, and used the outdoor shower constantly. Just minutes from the house was a private beach, does not get better. The town nearby was also perfect and convenient for daily groceries. The owners were really accommodating and seemed to have a wealth of knowledge about the island. For me this was complete paradise and I cannot wait to go back!
I flew from New York directly to Sardinia to celebrate my birthday with my friends. The house is perfectly located next to the magical, crystal water. The view from the house is incredible. The hosts organized everything perfectly for our arrival. It was one of the best vacations I've had and I will surely be back. Viva la Sardegna!
We booked the house for 16 days in May and were very much looking forward to spend a romantic time there with the two of us. As it turned out the overall experience was very disappointing and we left half-way through our trip.
What is good about the house is the location. Absolutely stunning view and the wider area is gorgeous too.
What was very disturbing is that right next door a house is being constructed. The hammering started at 7.30! and went on till 16.30. The owners knew about this as they had just been there themselves but did not notify us of the construction noise. Very misleading.
The house itself is very basic and simple which is fine with us. the furnishing is old and especially the bed needs to be replaced. What is not fine is that the owners must be heavy smokers as they house smells very intensely. The smoke smell is very strong in the bedding, quite disgusting really. Again there was no warning on the website or in the direct communication with the owners beforehand that this is a smokers house. We would never have considered renting it.
Other that that the house was reasonably clean except there was no toiletpaper. Not great if you arrive in the late evening with no amenities nearby!
These sort of unwelcoming signs were everywhere. No diswasher detergent, no washing powder. one set of towels for 16 days! etc. Overall not very welcoming hosts and as it turned out quite rude as well. .
The local caretaker does not speak any English. She is lovely but with all the issues we had we had no way to communicate our concerns other than emailing the owners in New York. Until this day they never replied to our emails. Interesting way of treating your customers.
Our overall recommendation is DO go to Sardinia. It is paradise. After we left this property we found a great place to stay and had a wonderful time. But DO NOT go to this place. Don't be tempted by the pictures, you will be disappointed,
