A great family villa in a rural setting

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from staying at this property with my husband and family, totalling 6 adults & 1 toddler and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The property was clean and well equipped and Diane, the agent who met us there was brilliant with all relevant information on the villa and also on the surrounding area and the 'to-do's'. She got our basic provisions for us, as we had a later arrival, plus a tiramisu cake I had asked if she could get for birthday celebrations we had, which was very welcoming after our journey from Olbia. All liaision prior to travel was first class and would certainly recommend to anyone. The location was great for Alghero & getting to the main roads for sightseeing. We can recommend, for Sunday lunch time, Sa Mandra-Azienda Agrituristica which was a wonderful local dining experience of several courses in a beautiful setting - check out trip advisor. Also the walk to the Grotte Di Nettuno down nearly 700 steps (and back again) was great, if you like walking, and the views outstanding. You can get a boat from Alghero if you prefer. Overall a most memorable holiday.

Best holiday

  • 5 of 5

This has got to be one of the best holidays my family has had. We were 5 adults and 4 children staying at the farmhouse. It was VERY spacious, bedrooms were large and comfortable. The 3 bathrooms were a necessity. The downstairs living area was large and a complete surprise with lots of areas for everyone to chat or to be alone. The outside covered veranda was great for dining and playing games. The pool was perfect and cleaned regularly. The owner answered all our questions before hand and gave lots of information. The English agent Diane was very helpful offering further helpful information and nothing was too much trouble from booking restaurants to best beaches to visit. I would recommend this holiday home to all ages and plan to re book next year. Once again thank you.

Owner's Response: This is a very pleasing review as we do our very best for each booking and hope that every guest child or adult has the best time ever. It is a very large property and with the pool and very large garden not the easiest property to manage and maintain but it is beautiful, so very pleased when it is appreciated.

Large airy house in lovely grounds

  • 5 of 5

As a family ranging in age from 17 to 70 we really loved the spaciousness of this house. The garden was full of lovely trees and shrubs and the BBQ and outdoor terrace were great for al fresco evenigs with good food and wine. The swimming pool was simply lovely and was cleaned regularly. This is a great location for a peaceful holiday but it is close to Alghero and there is plenty to do nearby. Diane the property manager was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. I would recommend this property as a great place to stay.

Owner's Response: A much appreciated response to our property by this very welcome guest. We do make every effort to ensure our guests have a very enjoyable stay by catering for all ages. As the property is very spacious with delightful gardens and a private pool it is ideal for families and indeed often more than one family to enjoy as a group. The grounds and pool are professionally managed and are a delight. Our lady agent who lives nearby is an absolute treasure and we are very pleased to have her. This year we have had guests returning for the fourth year, always a good commendation. Thank you to the guests who stayed with us in mid June and posted this review. Please come again you are most welcome.

Beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time in your lovely

house. We've stayed in properties throughout Italy and Sicily and I think

the living area in yours was probably the nicest we've encountered - so many

lovely areas for sitting around chatting and enjoying a glass of wine. The

outside facilities - pool, bbq, gardens etc. - were also fantastic and we

enjoyed the lovely fresh lemons from the tree in the garden.

The house was perfectly situated for us - six adults and two small children

- close to lovely beaches and the towns of Fertilia and Santa Maria la Palma

but also close enough to Alghero for us to visit and explore in the evenings

when it was cooler.

Diane couldn't have been more helpful. It was great to have the groceries

we requested all in place when we arrived so we didn't have to venture out

our first evening. There was one day when we discovered we had no running

water in the house during the afternoon and even though the fault was with

local works, Diane answered our call immediately and went to check on the

cause of the problem and when we could expect it to be resolved. Please

pass on our thanks to her.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, you were very welcome guests, our agent much appreciated the clean and tidy condition the house was left in. It is always nice to know that guests have enjoyed their stay at the property but have also enjoyed Sardinia. It has much to offer including travelling inland where the terrain is rugged and very interesting. Most people however, visit Sardinia for the beaches which are beautiful. The property also has a lot to offer, the grounds with a private pool are amazing, very tropical and I am glad that some of the fruit was enjoyed. The open plan design of the interior works in a hot climate, spacious inside and out. Our first guests of the year are welcome back any time.

Wonderful reccommendation

  • 5 of 5

At first we were not sure which part of the Island to stay at, but a friend recommended this property and because there were eleven adults and five children we thought it would be large enough for our needs. It was perfect. We stayed for three weeks. The house was lovely and the garden kept the children entertained when we stayed at home which we did a lot. It made a nice change for me to be at home with the children and our extended family as I am a working mum. The English couple who looked after us live locally so it was nice to know that should there have been a problem someone was there to help. The pool was delightful and it was a good opportunity for my younger ones to brush up on their swimming. On the days we toured or went to the beaches we found the Island a very friendly place. It is like a little undiscovered paradise. Would certainly return. Beaches were great. On our last night the agents arranged for us to have a meal at the local agri turismo restaurant. It made a memorable end to a very enjoyable holiday. Thanks to all.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and comments. These guests booked because previous guests had told them of the property. It is always nice to have a word of mouth booking. A good percentage of our bookings are made this way. It helps because people know more or less what to expect regards the location and general standards. These guests were very pleasant and although they were high in number with ages going through from 2 years to a grandmother in her late seventies the property was left in a very good order. I was told by the agents that they thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and would also recommend to their friends and family. This is always nice to hear. Our agents an English couple are very conscientious and live locally. They certainly do everything they can to make the holidays as enjoyable as possible. We are very lucky to have them.
