Individual 3 Bedroom Villa with Private Pool and Sea Views



Updated: 30-Nov-2016
3 bed Villa Pittulongu, NE coast of Sardinia - Peaceful Private Location, Private Pool, Views, wifi, Close to Sandy Beach

Please feel secure that we are not an agency, the write up and photos are taken and written by us about the property that you would be renting.

Also, this property has been listed on Owners Direct since June 2009, so shows that I have a proven track record of renting this property.With my long standing experience all guests receive comprehensive paperwork throughout the booking process, hence why I do not use the payment system. If you require further information please contact me direct on 01564 822633 or 0779 3367537.

Built in traditional Sardinian style, Casa di Lucertola is set in a quiet location within pretty private gardens.

The villa has unlimited wifi, its own private pool, a gas BBQ and large fully furnished terrace with views over the beautiful Golfo di Olbia towards Isola Tavolara.

The villa is furnished to a high standard, and is professionally maintained. The kitchens were new this year, and over the winter the shower rooms will be upgraded.

As well as the private pool, there is also use of the village communal pool with life guard (June to mid September).

The nearest beach is just a 10 minute walk away, and is 1.5km of clean white sand, and crystal clear water. There are many more beautiful safe sandy beaches close by.

Olbia is 10 minutes, and its airport is 15 - 20 minutes away, whilst Alghero is a 1.5 hour drive straight across the island.

This villa is in a perfect location for exploring the coast and unspoilt interior of this beautiful island.

Ideal for a summer, or an out of season holiday.

For larger groups I have another three bedroom villa with private pool and a smaller two bedroom apartment all in the same location.

Welcome pack of wine, water, milk, tea and coffee.

About the Owner

We are a family of 4, we first visited the island when our children were young,(they are now early twenties) and have seen them grow up enjoying the freedom and safety of this beautiful island - there is something for everyone!

As with all our guests we work very hard and are restricted to definitive holiday periods, so we try and make everyday count for our guests by sharing the knowledge that we have built up over the last 10 years.

We visit Sardinia regularly throughout the year so keep a close eye on the property so it is well maintained. We try and make the whole holiday decision making and booking as easy and painless as possible. So from the moment someone chooses to holiday in our property the fun starts!

Check out our accolades - they speak for themselves.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your villa is in a beautiful location and is really well appointed. The gardens are beautiful and the house is well equipped for a family stay. The position of the villa is incredible and the views will stay with us for quite some time!

We would like to thank you for the very smooth administration process in helping to organise and facilitate our holiday - your directions from the airport were spot on.We totally see why you love Sardinia and it is definitely a destination we will be returning to in the future.We had a wonderful week at your villa,the kids loved the pool! We drove up the Costa Smeralda coast and experienced both Porto Rotondo and Porto Cervo, we also spend time on the beaches of Cala di Volpe, unforgettable!! We will return to Sardinia, one week is not nearly enough of this wonderful island! August 2014

We had a fabulous time at the villa. It was great having our own pool, and being able to cook at leisure. the layout is great - we dined both inside and out and the open plan layout is spacious and welcoming. The beaches were great, and the info pack you provided was very useful. We have been telling everyone how beautiful Sardinia is, what a wonderful villa, and such a short flight away. July 2009.

We really enjoyed our stay in your villa which was pretty well ideal for what we were looking for with an excellent location and loads of beautiful places to visit within a short drive. It was nice to have some good beaches within walking distance too and the exercise walking back up the hill will hopefully have done us good also! The information you left in the villa was really helpful and very professionally put together – very useful on the last day where we would not have known that the left luggage place was at the airport car park and for helping to make the best use of what was quite a long day with a 9:30pm flight home. This sort of attention to detail really makes a difference – we’ve been renting similar villas in places like France, Portugal and Italy for over 10 years and it’s surprising how often the information left is quite scant. 

Overall, we would thoroughly recommend your villa and the very professional way you operate it – thanks again. We don’t normally visit the same location twice but will certainly think seriously about it for next year because it worked so well for us and there are many more places in the area that we would like to see. June 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your villa - it is ideally situated as it is so close to the beach, and so convenient to the airport May 2010.

We are home and desperately missing Sardinia! Thank you so much for the kindness you showed while we were in Pittulongu, we loved every minute. What a wonderful island and your enthusiasm for the place is infectious! We will be back as we feel we had only just scratched the surface. We need to check our dates for a future booking.

Fantastic villa in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location only 20 minutes from the airport, walking distance from good beach and restaurants and only short drive to supermarket, market towns and other stunning beaches.

Villa was well maintained and offered everything required for a hassle-free stay. The swimming pool, terrace and gardens all with fantastic sea views were a particular highlight.

The communication from the owner throughout the process was first-class . The recommendations for day excursions, restaurants, beaches etc were well-considered and tips and directions carefully laid-out. I would highlight our memorable day on the yacht Pagan from Cala Banana which we would never have considered without the reference from the villa owner.

A superb family holiday. I would not hesitate to recommend the villa and location to anyone looking for a break in Sardinia.

Owner's Response: I think this review really sums up perfectly from a guests point of view the villa, the area and the service we offer our guests. We do try and think what we would want from a holiday home and a holiday. We listen to our guests suggestions both big and small and within reason try to put them into practice to continually improve what we have to offer. Looks like we are achieving what we set out to provide.

Owner's Response: We pride ourselves in providing the sort of accommodation and service that we as a family would look for in a holiday home. We encourage guests to provide us with feedback, so that we can provide the little things that people want during their stay. We always make ourselves available to our guests before and during their stay as we understand how important it is as a holiday maker to know that there is someone available to help out with last minute questions or queries that might arise during the holiday. Finally, we do love it when people enjoy their stay, and want to come back.

Great location, great villa, great owners

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic view over the bay from a beautifully kept, three bedroom villa. The place has been kept immaculate, with an excellent kitchen and dining area. The attention to detail in the guide from the owners, packed with invaluable information about the local area and Sardinia in general, was incredible. Indeed, the whole client handling, from first contact to final review, was exemplary. Really happy I found this place, and will certainly want to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review, we love it when our guests enjoy both the property and the island. We do try and think of what we would want as a couple/ family from a holiday, from the initial contact right through to arrival and the all important stay. When once the holiday is booked we like to keep our guests updated on local changes which may be of interest during their holiday as we know how important it is to maximise holiday time. We are able to do this as we regularly visit the island. We also actively encourage our guests to comment on both good and bad so that we can make changes if necessary. We love it and know we have got it right when guests return, which happens a lot.

Well equipped villa with great views

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well equipped and comfortable villa. The pool is private with great views towards Isola Tavolara. There are numerous great beaches within minutes and many excellent restaurants nearby. The owners have gone to a lot of trouble with recommendations of places to go and things to do. Definitely try some of the suggestions, we thought they were all well considered, particularly the yacht charter, which was exceptional.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for thoughts. We really appreciate it when our guests take the time to write a review. We visit Sardinia on a regular basis throughout the year, so are constantly updating our information folder, which we think is very important for enriching holidays. After departure we ask all our guests for feedback, both good and bad. This is very important for us to understand what our guests want from their holiday, and to put correct anything that may not be quite right. The yacht charter is always a highlight on everyones holiday.

Perfect villa, lovely private pool and great views

  • 5 of 5

The villa is extremely spacious, lovely big living space with great kitchen facilities for any catering needs. Loved the American fridge/freezer, the ice machine was perfect for filling up the champagne bucket! The pool and garden are is very private and well cared for, with a beautiful palm providing much needed shade during the hot afternoons. There was a shallow end to the pool but also a ledge around the deep end which meant it was very safe for my 7 year old who isn't a fully competent swimmer in deep water.

Finally, the owner was extremely helpful in terms of suggestions and ideas for car hire/trips etc. Also she provides the added bonus of a local rep to provide immediate assistance which you don't often get with private villa hire.

Definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review, we really appreciate feedback and find it valuable to ensure that we continue to Improve and upgrade our facilities. We understand how precious holiday time is, so we try and think ahead and provide our guests with as much help and up to date information as we can. In fitting out the villa we have tried to think of all the things we as a family require from a property when we go away on holiday. Although we go out to Sardinia on a regular basis, and when we are there are available for our guests, we think it is very important for peace of mind that we have an English spoken representative available locally for any queries or problems. We and our representative pride ourselves in being quick to respond to questions and queries.

From the Owner

The property is conveniently located close to Olbia and its airport, so transfers time is 15 minutes. Locally we have restaurants, bars and shops that remain open all year round - very important. We are situated in one of the prettiest and unspoilt areas of the island, yet it has the unique benefit of having access to amazing beaches, unspoilt countryside, the glamour of the Costa Smeralda. We visit the island on a regular basis throughout the year, so keep a close eye on maintenance, our representative, and when we are in Sardinia are always available for our guests. This property is uncluttered, but well appointed. The property reflects our personal experience of what we would like to have available to us on our holiday. Yes it is a view that 'takes your breath away'.
