Should you decide to go to the many surrounding beaches parasols, beach towels and beach mats are provided free of charge.

You can of course just relax by the poolside. On a balmy summer evening one of our favourite pastimes is to sit on the balcony with a glass of wine, light some candles, listen to relaxing music and look at the night sky filled with twinkling stars. This is dolce vita at it's best.The area is also popular with cyclists, ornithologists and hill walkers. In the villa we have left informative leaflets and guide books.

The villa is situated within a "Blue Zone" this is classified where there is a large number of people who live to be over 100 years of age. Of all the blue zones throughout the World Sardinia has the most Centenarians. This is put down to the healthy food and in particular the Cannonau wine that the locals drink. There is a vineyard within a 15 minute drive where this delicious wine can be purchased.

For added security our e-mail address, land-line telephone number and home address will be supplied with the booking form. Genuine owners can be easily checked by telephone book, voters roll, etc. We are only to pleased to answer any queries or questions you may have.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Travelling with children and grandparents can be stressful. (Parents understand this.) The villa is huge and spotlessly clean with large well-proportioned rooms, you are not bumping into one another, great bedrooms, bathrooms and showers. Everybody gets a hot shower, unlike other places we have stayed where there is a tiny boiler. (The first person gets a hot shower and the rest a cold one.)



If you like peace and quiet with stunning views then this is the place for you. We did go into San Teodoro, Olbia and other places but were glad we could leave the noise and buzz behind. Thanks for the GPS coordinates to the villa, supermarkets, restaurants etc. This was so helpful and stress free when driving in a strange town. Keeping kids constantly amused is always difficult but having the pool kept them happy for hours, along with the play station and films. There was plenty of outdoor space with a nice barbecue area. I could go on. Basically the villa, area and beaches are beautiful. I have never seen such crystal clear water. We didn't venture to far from the villa as we found we had everything there for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. I would certainly book this villa again.

Perfect getaway for a large family group

  • 4 of 5

The villa was ideal for a large family group, each of the five bedrooms were spacious with en-suite facilities and the sizeable open plan kitchen-diner-lounge was excellent; perfect for dinner and evenings in together. We enjoyed sundowners on the balcony each evening watching the sunset behind the mountain opposite. The pool is good size too with lots of sun loungers. We had lunch alfresco and barbeques in the evening as there is a nice outdoor dining area too.

The villa is only half an hour or so from various beautiful beaches. We can highly recommend the Agritourismo that is only a 15 minute walk away, it's called "L'Olivastro" after the ancient olive trees on their land. The food was excellent. There's nothing going on in the next village, Biasi, which is within walking distance but a five minute drive will take you into Padru where there are a couple of good bars and a pizza place.

Very good family Villa with a fantastic pool

  • 5 of 5

Secluded within a oak forest the Villa Esmeralda provided the perfect retreat for our two families. Spacious accommodation and the large pool was a welcome sight after spending the day at one of the many local beaches. 15 minutes away is San Theodoro, a delightful local town with a great evening market and a good choice of restaurants. The local Agriturismo was a real treat and made for a memorable evening in a lovely setting. Even the kids at 13 and 16 enjoyed the food and atmosphere although they equally enjoyed the BBQ’s by the pool watching the stars. A enjoyable family trip and a place we will visit again.

Spacious comfortable accommodation in glorious Sar

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect villa for a large family or a big group of friends. The big living room is comfortable and cool and the large table great for family meals and kitchen well equipped. We alternated days by the lovely pool with visits to t he magnificent beaches and local excursions. Alan the owner is always on hand but not intrusive and a mine of local knowledge that beats any holiday rep I have ever hencountered. Book a boat trip but do it early as they get booked up. Sardinia exceeded my expectations and the villa was a perfect quiet location to enjoy all the delights on offer.

Great Villa for large group or family

  • 5 of 5

What can I say except that all the reviews people have posted are true. I am from Australia so we booked by what other had said in the reviews and we where not disappointed. We had peace and quite and a great pool to relax around and plenty of space for 7 friend and 2 kids from Australia and England. The villa has everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing holiday. We all had a great time catching up with old friends and exploring Sardinia. The owner was very helpful from when we booked and during our stay.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Sardinia and we loved it - we recommend the area and the villa if you like to be away from it all but not to far to have company if you want it! The booking was smooth and Alan was great - always responded very promptly to any enquires. It was a pleasure to meet Alan at an 'easy to find' rendezvous spot just outside of the airport, whereby he guided us to the villa, which was greatly appreciated. The villa is spacious, with very large bedrooms, good en-suite bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen and a fabulous size pool - great for big kids! We enjoyed a couple of bbq's at the villa and Alan was on-hand to help with restaurant recommendations and bookings. The view from the balcony over the valley is fabulous (don't forget to pack some binoculars)!

We all enjoyed the local beaches with beautiful water, both colour and temperature. We enjoyed a great boat trip from La Cinta beach which is about 15 mins from the Villa by car on good roads and has good parking facilities. San Teodoro came alive in the evening with many resturants and shops also street entertaninment (not sure if this was just a festival or every night event - we went on a Sunday).

A fantastic, thoroughly enjoyable weeks break and we would love to return one day!

Very good

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very pleasant 10 days here. The villa is large and well appointed in a secluded part of the island but within easy reach of the airport,a number of excellent beaches,shops and other attractions.

The fact that Alan is on hand when needed to help with directions, tourist advice, shopping,property maintenance made our stay extremely easy.

I would thoroughly recommend it.
