Ideal family beach house.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great relaxing holiday. The house seems much closer to the beach than is suggested in the description.

Everyone could come and go to the beach as they pleased which is important for a group of 15.I swam in the sea every morning before breakfast! The weather was perhaps the best we have experienced in comparisons with previous visits to Spain, Portugal, Greece, France etc.

With six bedrooms and 16 beds make sure that the mix is right as obviously there will have to be some sharing.

Food in the area is wonderful & I recommend the nearest restaurant Pinetta, a few minutes away.

The location is such that there is access to a fresh water lagoon adjacent to the sea which proved a boon to the younger children. The open air pool has a thatched roof which helps to keep off the pine needles. However, it means that the pool can seem a little cool at times!

I would highly recommend this property & I hope to return soon.

Owner's Response: Dear James,Thank you for your review for Villa Maria.It is lovely to get feedback especially when it is positive.It is difficult to know what people want in a holiday home and I sometime worry that what we offer is not what was expected.The roof over the pool is new this year and i am interested to hear that the water is cold.I think we can divert hot water from the house system to warm up the water.Next years big project.! I hope you are feeling refreshed and full of energy after your visit to Sardinia.

Great house and amazing location

  • 5 of 5

The location of this house could not be better. It is a minutes walk down quiet forest roads to a lovely beach. You can also walk or drive to the town of Valledoria where there are many shops, cafes and restaurants. The sea could be pretty rough at times with big waves but overall a fun beach for all the family. It was great to be able to pop back to the villa during the day for lunch or a siesta or a dip in the (very cold!) pool. Or for a relax and read in the hammocks.

The house benefits from having all en suite rooms-a definite plus for travelling with a large extended family. The outdoor eating area was fabulous and we spent many hours relaxing.eating and drinking there. The kitchen was small but we managed ok and it was well equipped Wi fi was hit and miss but at least there was some wi fi which we did not have in the other Sardinian properties we stayed in. Overall a great house and location. I would definitely recommend staying there.

parfaite pour des vacances entre amis avec enfants

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une semaine de vacances à 4 couples et 4 enfants en très bas age, notre objectif etait deprendre du bon temps, de se reposer, de profiter des enfants, de la mer, le tout facilement. La villa était tout à fait appropriée à ce genre de vacances, elle est bien insonnorisée, les chambres sont spacieuses, la cuisine un peu petite mais celle de l'exterieur avec barbecue et lavabo et immense! l'extérieur de la villa est très agréable, plein de recoins , ombragé, convivial et sécuritaire! la piscine, quoique un peu froide est très propre et sa taille suffisante. Angela est une propriétaire honnête, sympathiqu, qui répond relativement rapidement aux mails/sms, on peut lui faire confiance et si elle peut aider,elle le fait! la maison est gérée par une de ses amies sur place, qui répond rapidement en cas de problème techniques, ce qui est parfois le cas dans une maison de vacances, peut utilisée à l'année et très occupée l'été. le wifi laisse à désirer mais cela permet de se déconnecter pdt les vacances ! nous ne sommes pas décus de cette location, bien au contraire!

Great Holidays

  • 5 of 5

It was a nice time being around this area. The beach is close to the house and the restaurant and shop is close in walking distance. The pool was clean and refreshing as were the hammocks in the garden. The inside area of the house was very comfortable as was the outside area.

This property is ideal for families with kids and I definitely recommend it.

From the Owner

My husband Tom and I bought Villa Maria in 2007 when we spotted it while on holidays the previous Summer.We fell in love with the villa and its siutation and its odd shape. It reminds me of a child's sandcastle. I always dreamed of a house in a forest or beside the sea. We covered both with Villa Maria.Needless to say the transformation of the villa from a two apartment building to a family friendly villa has taken longer and cost more than we anticipated. It is a work in progress. Each year we upgrade some part of the villa to improve its appearance or comfort.

From the Owner

For me the best thing about Villa Maria is its situation beside the sea.The minute we arrive I relax. I hear the sea and the wind in the trees. The birds waken us in the morning and entertain us during the day. It is a quick walk to the beach for a dip before breakfast or to cool down during the day. I love the warm air and the feeling of heat on my cold Irish bones. away. My ideal day is spent in a hammock with a good book and cold wine. My ideal evening is with family and friends, sitting around the table eating good food and drinking more good wine.We have tried to make the villa welcoming to all, to make it comfortable and relaxing.
