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.

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

Peace, Calm and Tranquility

  • 5 of 5

We spent a joyous two weeks in this upland retreat only 15 minutes drive from the coast. The house was perfect for dipping in and out of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season which was in full swing at the beginning of August. Its location allowed easy access to beaches and seaside activities right along the northern coast as well as trips to the cork oak forests and medieval towns of the interior. The owner, Lorenzo, was discreetly on-hand to provide useful local knowledge (in excellent English), allowing us to quickly orientate ourselves and get on with our holiday.

The tastefully decorated house provided ample space for our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teenagers). Two terraces ensured plenty of shade to relax during the heat of the summer sun, the pool was great for cooling off and the shady hammocks allowed a number of books to be consumed. We thought in August that the night time heat would be difficult to cope with but the location of the house means that the evening temperatures drop away allowing a great night's sleep on comfy beds.

We can not recommend this house and its owner more highly, Lorenzo went out of his way to help us have a wonderful holiday and memorable experience. The donkey composting system was great fun too!

A place to chill out

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing two weeks at this lovely countryside retreat. The house is very well equipped and comfortable. The outside shaded areas and the pool provided a refreshing alternative to the crowded beaches at this time of year.

Would recommend to anyone who wants to get away from it all, whilst at the same time being near to lovely areas to explore.

Bohemian Rhapsody!

  • 5 of 5

At the time we booked this house there was only one review and one guest comment on the website and although both were very good we were not sure what to expect. However within the house there is a big book with so many great guest reviews, several from returning holidaymakers; people really love this house and it's interesting owner.

We stayed at Lorenzo's wonderful house for a week and it was so much more interesting to stay in a home with a history rather than a purpose built holiday unit. The house is a beautifully quirky place to stay in and Lorenzo is a great source of local information and a perfect host - he is readily available if you have queries but also respects your privacy. You do need a car of course but we enjoyed retiring inland from the busy town or beach each day. The amazing beaches of northern Sardinia are easy to get to and Palau is a pretty town with numerous restaurants and options for day trips. We are a family of 3 but there would have been enough room for several more. The showers are fantastic, plenty of hot water, kitchen facilities good and the pool is a bonus and great for children. We had wifi which was worth having and of course feeding donkeys is fun for adults and kids alike!

Highly recommended if you want to get away from it all.

Thank you Lorenzo!
