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.

Luxurious italian summer retreat

  • 5 of 5

It was one of the most amazing summer vacations i had here at La Belle Etoile. David, the owner and his amazing team were extremely professional, friendly and detailed oriented. From the airport pick up, to the delicious meals and they level of assistance they provided whenever i wanted was more than i could have asked for. The property itself is such a gem. Nested right on the beach and surrounded by beautiful palm trees, we even had our own private access to the beach. They had paddle boards to borrow as well which we utilized almost every morning before breakfast. We then lounged right by the infinite pool overlooking the beach the rest of the day with a good book and some of the delicious local wine that the staff recommended. I highly recommend this place if you want to be treated like a royalty in a beautiful villa.

A very special place in Sardinia

  • 5 of 5

Villa La Belle Etoile is a special place in Sardinia. I've traveled to a lot of places in Europe and been to a lot of beach properties around the world and have to say, this villa has a magical appeal. You instantly feel at home. There are many areas of the villa that bring a different experience to every day of your stay, for example:

- You'll want to spend all day at infinity pool that overlooks the sparkling blue bay. Also, the hammock next to the pool makes for a nice siesta.

- If you're looking for a quiet escape and shade, you can take the steps leading down to the beach, and to the left you'll find a cooling and calm area under the trees where you can enjoy your book, take a nap and relax.

- Then there is another area with lounge beds and umbrellas where you can catch-up with friends, take a break from the sun and more.

- If you venture to the bay, you'll love the crystal blue waters where you can paddle board, kayak or just float and relax. I thought Turks and Caicos had the bluest and clearest water but this bay is a super closer contender. I loved every bit of it. It's nice to go for swim in the day but also, right before sunset. You'll spend the day going in for a plunge several times.

- The rooms at the villa each have a unique design and theme all creating a different experience. You must tour each room to feel thoughtful design that was put into each room.

- The outdoor dining area is magical for apertivo time and dinners. You'll spend hours here enjoying Aperol Spritz, Sardinian wines and snacks. The view at sunset is stunning and memorable.

Overall, Villa La Belle Etoile has the best location and your experience will feel authentic to the Sardinian culture. You will leave happy and wanting to come back soon again. I know I will.

believe or not

  • 1 of 5

I will write it short as it turned out to be our stay there as well. We left on the second day instead of staying a week. The interior was, sorry to say that, dirty, even the piano was covered by dust and the sofa in the living room was full of some hairs from a dog, I guess. The whole house is very obsolete. The beach is actually rocky not sandy at all as it looks on the pictures. All the pictures are significantly "improved" by the Photoshop. I believe there no need to say anything else...

Owner's Response: Dear Mr. Jaromir, Thank you for taking the time to review and we are sorry that we did not meet your expectations. Though the villa was thoroughly cleaned before your visit, the previous guest did have a small dog and I apologize for any residual hairs that were missed during the cleaning. We have taken steps to insure that this will not happen again. I’m sorry to hear that you found our house obsolete. As the first villa on the beach in 1962 (the house that started the town of Torre Delle Stelle), it has much history and a rustic Sardinian charm. We aim to maintain our historical importance while providing the modern visitor with fast wifi, international plugs, satellite TV, air conditioning, and other amenities. Unfortunately the state of the beach is not left up to us, but rather mother nature. Genn’e Mari beach changes yearly with winter storms and though it is usually sandy, there has been rockier beaches in the past. We are sorry that last year it was rocky in front of the house, though 20 meters away the beach was sandy. We must be clear that we never photoshopped the beach in any of our photos and we invite you to check satellite views to see the quality of the beach this year. We do hope to have you as a guest in the future so we can show you the true potential of our beautiful Sardinian getaway. Kindly, Nathalie De Clercq

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.
