About lorenzo

I'm 56 year old, born in Torino, and I discovered Sardinia 36 years ago I immediately was in love with this beautiful island and.the next year I decided to change my life staying there.

lorenzo purchased this villa in 2001

Why lorenzo chose Tempio Pausania

In summertime Sardinian north coast is full of tourists (traffic, noises etc.) and I decided to buy a house in a beautiful , peaceful and cool countryside but at the same time near to the beaches and to the villages.

What makes this villa unique

If you love nature. If you love peace. If you love relaxing silences. If you have children, they'll play in total freedom. Be sure you will enjoy this house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I think we can honestly say that from what we have seen of Sardenga you are very lucky to live in one of the most beautiful parts of the island - some of the other places we saw were very nice, but none as lovely as the area around Palau. Just a final few words to say thank you once again for letting us stay in your lovely home. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday - exactly what we wanted. Sometimes when we stay in holiday homes we do not feel comfortable but from the first moment we arrived your house made us feel welcome. A presto. Marina & Stuart.

Lovely house, relaxing atmosphere, perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lorenzo's villa for one week in October 2017. The house was relaxing- we could go outside, sit in the sun, eat breakfast on the patio and lay in the hammocks. There are two donkeys at the villa who you can feed. My siblings enjoyed petting the donkeys. The house is located in a small village and twenty minutes from the ocean. Lorenzo is a very welcoming person and gave us some great tips on the island. Through him we were able to spend a day out on the sea exploring the islands by La Maddalena it was a lot of fun! We recommend this home to anyone looking for a great place to stay in the northern part of Sardinia. Thank you Lorenzo for a brilliant stay.

Great house, fantastic host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with our two daughters (7 and 9 years old) in Lorenzo's house. We had a fantastic week, super relaxing in the garden and the 'chillroom' inside the house as our daughters called it.

The house is situated near the village but it is set in super peacefull surroundings and the donkeys kept us company during our stay. A big plus is the swimmingpool and the fantastic host, Lorenzo. He knows everything about the Island, gives great advises where to go and is very kind. You feel very welcome!

The property was better than expected. No untrue pictures. We felt immediately at home. Also because of the nice host, Lorenzo. Not intrusive, but some nice tips at the right moments. We can recommend a stay in this place. For sure.

Secluded rural property with convenient location for access to Northern Sardinian beaches and sights

  • 5 of 5

The property closely matches the description and pictures and is a special find if you wish for a secluded and peaceful location. It is off-road in a rural country area with ample parking for at least 2 cars. It is a few minutes drive from a small town and supermarket and both tank stations and larger supermarkets are easily accessible on route to Palau.

It is characteristic, rustic and arty rather than modern - and ideal for families and relaxing at the house - especially during midday heat.

Opportunities for relaxing at the property are great: front and back shaded seating areas, hammocks under shady trees next to a grassy and tree surrounded garden as well as a small but functional pool and garden chairs. The outdoor shower is a treat after swimming or coming back from the beach.

The property is clean and well maintained and is easy to keep cool during the midday hours.

The owner is extremely accessible - living nearby but not within the property - helpful and able to advise you on the right beaches and possibilities for organizing boat trips or visits to sites in the area.

We enjoyed lazing at the property during midday, sleeping in the hammocks, feeding leftover food to the resident donkeys, visiting and eating out at many small towns like "Aggius" in the surrounding areas, visiting the stunning beaches close to Palau and Rena Majore, exploring the many country roads and scenery and also a boat trip to the Maddalena archipelago.

The house added to an unforgettable experience in this beautiful area of Sardinia.

Beautiful Villa, Perfect for families!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Lorenzo's beautiful villa for 10 days in June, myself, my wife and our 18 month old son and we loved it.

The villa is perfect for what we needed, good kitchen facilities, large fridge, a good sized cot for the little one and a handy buggy to take him out in. This was our first holiday with the little one and having these bits really helped.

The outdoor area is fantastic, the villa has a good sized front garden with a pool and two hammocks, perfect for taking a siesta in the midday sun!. Then there is the back garden with a BBQ and trees providing a nice shaded area, lovely to have dinner outside and talk the night away as the sun sets.

The location is great, it’s far enough away from everything to be peaceful but only 15 minutes drive to the coast and Palua, there are literally hundreds or beaches to choose from, we also went to the Maddalena islands which we highly recommend. There are a few small stores in Bassacutena, a 3 min drive away but there are two larger stores a 10/15 minute drive away towards Palua which were handy.

Lorenzo was so helpful and kind during our stay, he showed us several places to visit which were fantastic and we would have never found them without him pointing them out. He hope to come back one day. Oh and our sons favourite bit? The Donkeys!!

Highly recommend for everyone including families with children of all ages!

Grazie Lorenzo!

Relaxing tranquil rural setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvellous ten-day stay at this tranquil rural home. We were two adults and two teenagers and the house suited us perfectly. We enjoyed eating outside with just the occasional sound of donkeys - Nina and Murika. Lorenzo is warm and welcoming and gave us a our privacy while also being on hand and really helpful about where to visit. A highlight was a canoe trip downstream to the sea spotting the ibis and kingfishers with Lorenzo as our guide. We would happily stay again and certainly come back to see more of beautiful Sardinia. A truly memorable holiday. Liz, Neal, Maddy and Luke, London
