About the property

Luxury 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom villa Pittulongu, NE coast, wifi, air conditioning, ideal for couples, families & groups

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.

Villa Casa di Lucertola is set in a quiet location on a small hill overlooking the stunning Golf di Olbia bay, Isola Tavolara and the beautiful white sandy beaches of Pittulongu, hence the great views.

Attractively built in Sardinian style this spacious three bedroom villa benefits from traditional high limed oak ceilings which keep the interior cool, and a large covered terrace perfect for dinning and relaxing. For al fresco dinning there is a large gas BBQ.

The villa is surrounded on three sides by a private walled Mediterranean garden, and benefits from its own private swimming pool, available all year.

The villa is very comfortably furnished with everything you would require for a successful family holiday. The kitchen was refurbished last season, and over this winter the shower rooms will also be refurbished. The villa is professionally maintained and we go out to Sardinia on a regular basis so keep the standards up.

The accommodation comprise of three double bedrooms, sleeping eight maximum and two shower rooms . The master bedroom has a large queen size bed, and the other two bedrooms have twin beds which on request can be put together to form a double.

We can also provide a cot and high chair at no extra cost, but this must be confirmed at time of booking. We can also provide extra beds if required at a small additional cost.

The main living area is open plan, and features a well stocked kitchen with a big American style fridge freezer, dishwasher and a dinning table and 6 chairs. The lounge area has two large sofas and coffee table, and a feature open fireplace. There is a TV/DVD player with a selection of DVD's.

There is optional air conditioning/heating available on request, this is available in all bedrooms and the main living area and kitchen. This is payable in advance or can be chosen on arrival and the cost will then be deducted from the breakage deposit.

We also provide unlimited free wifi.

There are two private covered parking spaces.

Additionally, there is a TV, CD player and a selection of DVDs.

There is also use of a communal pool, in season only (early June to mid September) surrounded by a sunbathing terrace, and beautiful views, which has a life guard on duty.

When you arrive you will find a comprehensive information folder. Along with a welcome pack of wine, water, milk, tea, coffee and sugar.

The villa is ideal for a family holiday or for a couple wanting a quiet romantic break. We can also cater for groups of friends who may wish to holiday together, but reside separately, as in the same location we also have another three bedroom villa with its own private swimming pool, and a two bedroom apartment with use of the communal pool. For more information log onto my website

When our children were young we had villa holidays, so we have tried to think about what our guests require in a holiday home. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, there is a large American style fridge/freezer, we provide a freezer bag and blocks, a beach umbrella, buckets and spades, games and books. There is also a lock box for the keys, which allows you instant access whatever time you arrive.

We, or our English speaking representative in Sardinia are always available to you.

Casa di Lucertola is situated in Pittulongu, which is perfect all year round, and is an ideal base for guests who want a stunning location, yet be close to good amenities. Pittulongu is known for its 1.5km beach of white sand, this is our nearest beach and is just a 10 minute walk away. Locally to us are some of the best beaches in Europe, all with beautiful white sand and crystal clear waters. Locally we have a well-stocked supermarket, and a fish and bread shop, as well as some great restaurants and bars. The nearest restaurants are situated along the beach, and all offer a good selection of pasta, pizza and fish and views over the bay.

Olbia is just a 10 minute drive away, and is a bustling city and port (although more the size of an English town). Here you will find all the facilities you would expect, a good selection of shops, restaurants, bars, banks, a fantastic archaeological museum, roman remains and a hospital.

Olbia airport is just 20 minutes drive, Alghero airport is 1.5 hour drive straight across the island, and Cagliari is a 4 hour drive down south.

Pittulongu is also ideally sited to explore the beautiful coastline, the renowned Costa Smeralda, or Emerald coast, the marinas of Porto Cervo and Porto Rotondo, and the unspoilt and little known interior of the island.

For our booked guests exclusively we have arranged family friendly yacht charter on a 41ft catamaran, with an English spoken skipper.

Available on request at very good rates from June to September.

Water sports, tuition and hire of paddle boards, windsurfers, dinghies and ribs are available locally.

Sardinia is a paradise for sports enthusiasts with a wide range of sports available locally from cycling to caving to golf on one of the prettiest golf courses in the world, the renowned Pevero Golf Club.

There is a fun water park nearby.

Most towns have colourful markets during the week, with the eclectic Thursday morning market in the mountain village of San Panteleo a must.

In the main summer months there are also night markets in Olbia and Golfo Aranchi which are always fun to wander around.

Sardinia is a great location for immersing yourself in local traditions and history, and is famous for it various colourful festivals held throughout the year. In August there is a world famous jazz festival, along with various important yachting events throughout the year.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in your lovely apartment, and will tell our family and friends about it- I have already had lots of comments about your fabulous roof terrace which we enjoyed so much in the evenings.

Getting to Olbia is very easy and quick from the UK, European cities, Russia, North America and Canada. With three airports on the island, and four major ferry ports, you can choose between flying and catching a ferry. Sardinia is often called the 'Caribbean of the Mediterranean', but is just a 2.5 hour flight time from most European cities, so unlike the Caribbean there is no long haul flight, and better still no jet lag!! An early morning flight into Olbia will get you to our location before lunch, so by early afternoon you could be swimming in the sea or the pool. Olbia has both an airport and ferry port so you have the choice of either flying, or driving and arriving by ferry. Flying into Olbia is the best solution, as the airport is only a 20 minute drive, so a nice quick and easy transfer. The ferry port is even closer. Easyjet flies into Olbia from London Gatwick, Luton, Bristol and Manchester. Meridiana flies into Olbia from London Gatwick. BA flies into Olbia in season from London Heathrow. In season there are charter flights from Birmingham and Stanstead. You could also consider a two location holiday flying into Olbia and spending time with us, then going onto Corsica, or south to Cagliari, or onto mainland Italy, all of which are served by Easyjet flights. We can give you advice on car hire.

Great villa in perfect location to explore

  • 4 of 5

Family of 4 adults and 3 kids aged 4, 4 and 3 had a great time for 2-weeks in July. Pool was perfect size to keep the kids entertained and we explored various nearby beaches every day in the car. Villa had everything we needed and owners info on nearby places was very useful. Dealing with owner also very straightforward - would highly recommend.

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.

We had a great holiday in your apartment, and could not believe how good the weather was for the time of year. The apartment is very well equipped and perfect for our needs, we especially enjoyed having breakfast on the roof terrace watching the boats go by. The information you provided was very useful. We followed your tips on restaurants, and really liked Lo Squalo and Mama Beach. What wonderful views! The highlight of our trip was the memorable day on the catamaran. We agree that Sardinia is very beautiful, we loved trying out all the beaches and managed to see a lot of the north east of the island, we especially liked Porto Rotondo and Baia Sardinia We will definitely come back again sometime and stay in your pretty apartment.

Owner's Response: One of our favourite ways to relax and enjoy the apartment is enjoying breakfast and an early evening aperitif on the upper terrace, watching the boats go by in the bay. It really is a beautiful ever changing view. Sardinia is a very beautiful unspoilt island, the apartment is well placed to explore both the coast and interior, so I am pleased that you took advantage of this. We have taken a lot of time to put together an information folder to help direct guests to good places to go. As we visit Sardinia on a regular basis throughout the year, we constantly update this, so love it when we get feedback on restaraunts and locations. We know what we like, but we always listen to our guests views too. Finally, we love it when guests enjoy themselves and intend to come back. Thank you.

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.
