A gem

  • 5 of 5

The first thing that struck us was the silence; a car passed by perhaps every 30mins, no aeroplanes overhead, just the wind and the tinkle of bells from the sheep - it's hard work deciding which bit of nothing to do next :-) It's very rural Sardinia but was spotlessly clean and everything we needed was there. Nino (the owner) and his family made us feel so welcome, we can't thank them enough. The pool was a dream, lovely to cool off in - I would suggest wearing footwear on the grass though.

It's not for you if you want raucous nightlife, lots of noise and non-stop stuff happening. I'd also suggest it's not suitable for very young children because of the openness of the countryside and the pool. The villa and pool are on the same level but there's a step up into the bathroom, providing you have some mobility a disability shouldn't be an issue. Being so high up it's windy (but warm) so keep an eye on sunburn.

Regarding Sardinia as a country I have to say it's nearly perfect. Wherever we went everyone was very friendly and accommodating - few spoke much English but were happy to borrow our Italian/English dictionary or make use of acting out words. We got along just fine, the language is not a problem at all. It is also an ideal place for someone from the UK who has never driven abroad before to visit as there is so little traffic. My personal highlight was the toilets (having experienced many Italian and French ones...) as every single one I visited was spotlessly clean - although toilet paper was in short supply so take a packet of hankies! The down side are the road signs, if you're trying to find a place of interest the signs are useless!

We can't wait to return

BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay if you are looking for the peace and quiet of the countryside. Accommodation was clean and comfortable, spacious and well maintained. Nino is a great host who put on a BBQ and arranged for the kids to help with milking the sheep. Great week.

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

From August 8 until August 22 we (2 adults and 2 kids at age of 11 and 14 from The Netherlands) stayed at Sa Raighina. From the airport of Alghero we drove to the gas station in Nulvi. We got a warm welcome from Nino, the owner.He buyed us a cup of coffee in the nearby cafe and then took us to the apartment 3 kilometres from Nulvi. Sa Raighina is a beautiful location with swimmingpool and spectacular view on the hills and wind mills. The swimmingpool was well-maintained every day.There are three appartments of same size. Each appartment has 2 spacious bedrooms, a bathroom with toilet, shower and bidet and a kitchen/living room with TV and possibilty for another 2 persons to sleep. It was very clean. We visited a lot of beautifeaul places and beaches like Stentino, Capo Caccia, Capo Testa, Castelsardo mainly on the west side of the Iland. The other guest (mostly Spanish) were also very friendly. The first day they prepared a lunch for us. We communicated with Nino and the other guest through a mixture of Italian, French, German and English. One night Nino held a bbq for his family and guests. Another afternoon he took us to a nuraghe and let us milk the sheep. In the second week we went to a agriturismo of a friend and had a delicious dinner. If you like meat, pasta and insalata you really should go there. Also one day we guided Nino when took the 320 sheep from one place to another. Nino frequently asked if we would like cucumber and zucchine from his land.The nearby little village of Nulvi was during our vacation a couple of days very alive because of ferragosta and I Candelhieri. But you do need a (rental) car to visit other places and beaches. If you like to learn about sardinia this is a typical place to stya.We really would like to thank Nino for his hospitality and really reccomend this location.

A Unique Experience

  • 5 of 5

We (family with two kids 6-8), stayed in july 2011 in Sa Raighina. A warm welcome by Nino in a beautifull house wirh full equiped kitchen (oven, coffeemaker, etc), bathroom with washingmachine and fine beds in the two bedrooms.

Right in front the pool with enough beds and a very nice place to sit with bank and comfort-chairs (really lounge!)

So we enjoy the peace and quiet (beautifull mornings!), Nino takes the kids along to the milking of the sheep, he lets them ride on horseback and gives us a taste of his own cheese, sausage and wine.

No better host I've ever seen!

The beach (Lu Bagnu) is only 15 minutes away, in Nulvi you have small shops, two restaurants, a lot of bars and market on saturday.

You can explore north Sardegna from here, Sassari is close by, the nice town of Castelsardo, other castello´s and even a cave is nearby.

As we´d like to see the Nuraghi in Sardegna, Nino took us and shows us two Nuraghi nearby and a sacred well!

He´s got not only sheep but cows, chicken, pigs and dogs. Our children had a great time with all the animals and offcourse in the extreme clean pool.

He helped us with the barbeque and is always ready to help you with advise.

So if you are looking for a rural and easy vacation, this is the place! Experience the real sardegnian life and enjoy the beautifull landscapes. Visit the medieval towns and villages and taste the great food.

All that in a comfortable, super appartment equipped with all you need (even a television, wich you don´t need).

Just go!

Quiet, peaceful, clean, comfortable, lovely sheep

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at the end of Sep 2009, beginning Oct, and enjoyed it thoroughly. The place is brand new - it has that new smell and much of the kitchen equipment has never been used.

Nino supplied us with fresh veg from his garden and loads of wood for the nightly barbecue, and although communication was a bit difficult, we managed fine.

Our two year old loved the sheep wandering past now and then, and once the garden is more established, this place will be even nicer.

It's very very quiet, which is great. Although there is a TV with sat receiver, we were never once tempted to switch it on. In the evenings we just sat outside on the patio in the comfy chairs and enjoyed the amazing views of the countryside. We expected the moscitos to swarm us, but they didn't - maybe Sept/Oct is too cold for them. It was still 28/30 degrees every day, though, which we spent at the beach 30mins away near Castelsardo.

Shopping was a bit difficult, as Nulvi isn't much of a metropolis, but there are plenty of places nearby - a car is a must, of course.

On the one day it rained, we visited the petrified forest nearby - there is some kind of surreal wooden sculpture on the site as well as some forlorn looking petrified logs - interesting.

Would recommend it, would visit again.
