Memories to last a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

So, I am in two minds about writing this review as this place is such an undiscovered treasure and I would love for it to stay that way! However, our hosts worked so hard and deserve great feedback, so here are some thoughts after my recent week-long stay.

The must-dos:

1. Swim to the edge of the infinity pool and gaze out over the calm bay.

2. Take a morning yoga class poolside and feel energized all day.

3. Walk down the beach to the beach bar for afternoon coffee and gelato.

4. Take a paddle-board or snorkel to discover the local under-sea sculptures.

5. Enjoy a leisurely Sardinian feast under the bougainvillea trees at the long dining table.

6. Tour the property and hear the unique history behind each of the rooms

7. Take a massage in the underground massage room with portholes into the pool (um, amazing)

Some things to keep in mind… The villa is set directly behind the beach, popular with local holiday-makers in the summer. I guess if you are looking for the private beach scene it won’t be for you but our group loved it. I would have liked a few more outlets in the rooms and would recommend packing a power-board if you must use a lot of devices. Or you could, you know, un-plug for a week.

Do yourself a favor and treat yourself and your family to a week at this unbelievable villa - you won’t regret it!

The most extraordinary stay

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not begin to capture the beauty of La Belle Etoile. The property is stunning with each view of the ocean more picturesque then the next and the property is immaculately maintained.

Our room was large and extremely comfortable. The air got quite cold at night and I could have used an another blanket on the bed. Other than that the accommodations were terrific. Our room had a very large bathroom with a hot tub and shower which were great.

Each morning we began the day by stepping out of the house and onto the beach for a morning swim. The water was beautifully clear and clean. After a morning swim we enjoyed laying by the infinity pool with cocktails and afternoon massages. Absolutely perfect.

The personal chef at the Villa is wonderful and each meal was more extraordinary than the next. The food was all local and extremely fresh with amazing homemade pasta making an appearance here and there throughout the week.

This was, by far, the most wonderful vacation we have taken. No detail was missed and Nathalie and Dave were incredible hosts. We will surely visit again.

Total paradise.

  • 5 of 5

This first picture doesn't even do La Belle Etoile justice - this place is stunning. You feel like you are in a total oasis surrounded by these purple flowers that make you feel like you are in some Blue Lagoon movie. I've never stayed so close to the beach before and to be able to just grab a paddle board and hit the water was such a treat. The thing we were most struck by was how VACATION this felt, we didn't have to lift a finger. We got to request the food we wanted to eat (I believe the tomatoes in Italy are made of magic), the rooms were so charming and anything we wanted was organized for us - even flyboarding (try this, easier than it looks). The only thing I would say is that if you need anything, the nearby stores are open at weird hours, it may be tough to get anything you might have forgotten immediately. Not much TV to be had (which I happened to love, but was tough for others) so make sure to pack your Netflix subscription too. Highly recommend, especially for big groups - we had 18 in our party and this place was a great fit.

The perfect Sardinian getaway

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful sea front villa was the perfect summer spot. Situated in the bluest bay with a great beach - La Belle Etoile will not disappoint!

It can host a large group comfortably (we were 18 people), with tons of fun group activities, but you can also find those intimate moments with your special someone, such as enjoying a romantic sunset or trying to count the endless stars in the sky, without feeling surrounded by people! Our room was lovely (we could have used more towel hooks) and very cool to sleep in during the hot summer nights.

The personal chef of the Villa is the cherry on the cake... delicious and fresh at every meal, with a great wine selection to choose from. Can't wait to go back!

Villa La Belle Etoile is spectacular

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 15 that included teenagers and young adults as well as parents.The location is idyllic as you are right on a beautiful beach with a pool that is only yards from the sea. Everyone was able to find a spot to relax and get away if needed as their are plenty of private nooks throughout the property. Nathalie, David and the staff they have at the villa are fantastic. They looked after our every need. The meals that they prepared at the villa for us were the best of the trip. Make sure to take advantage of the yoga and massage services that they can bring in for you, they are top notch. Rent this villa, you will be thrilled you did.

Beautiful place to relax & unwind!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is spacious, with rooms in various locations so you can choose if you want to be where everyone else is or more away from it all. The infinity pool overlooking the beach gives you plenty of choice for a swim. It's a versatile place - fabulous for a yoga retreat, an intimate wedding, or just a place to gather family and friends for a relaxing summer getaway. The beds are comfy, the towels fluffy and the view is hard to beat. It's clean, the water is hot and there's wifi. The food is delicious and the chef always checks to see that everyone is happy with their meal. Best of all there's a fireplace if you want to be cozy on a cooler evening and an indoor-outdoor lifestyle with plenty of different areas to lounge and relax.

It's located in a small village tucked away which is hard to find nowadays in Europe where everywhere in summer seems overrun with tourists. And it's only about a 40minute drive from the Cagliari airport. There's a small restaurant within walking distance, a grocery store, and a park with a playground and tennis court as well.

You can feel that the villa is family-run with the warmth and care that you receive as a guest here, and Nathalie especially goes out of her way to ensure that guests are happy and have everything they need to ensure a wonderful holiday. I would highly recommend staying here. It is so reassuring to find such a beautiful, peaceful place to stay where you know you'll have a great time!
