Great apartment in a stunning location

  • 4 of 5

A lovely bright, clean and modern apartment within walking distance to the lovely village of Porto Rotondo. Myself and husband have just returned from a brilliant 2 week stay at the apartment with our 2 teenage children (16 and 13).

Throughout the booking process the communication with owners Peter & Annamaria was great - no issues at all. We were sent thorough directions to the property and a number to call to contact their local correspondent who would take us to the property. A small hitch to start off the holiday when the correspondent was running late so we waited around 30mins to get the keys. As mentioned in a previous review on the property the local correspondent also speaks no English which makes the show around tricky!

The property itself is a good size for 4 with 2 double rooms and a single. Lots of sheets and bedding provided along with air con in every room. Wi fi is provided but its a dongle and we struggled to use it at all throughout our stay which was disappointing. One other small criticism was the main double bed is extremely hard so myself and my husband weren't particularly comfortable at night.

That said it didn't take away from our stay - we spent most of our days visiting the local beaches - we hired a car and chose to mainly visit Marinella beach which is a 5 min drive away. Beaches were all pretty busy during our stay but obviously that's to be expected during the summer season. We also used the shared pool most days which is a good size, clean and pretty quiet - on most days we had the pool to ourselves. Only down side was that the pool is shut between 1.30pm and 3pm- something we only found out when one of the locals shouted at us as the signs were all in Italian!!

The restaurants on the Porto Rotondo marina are all lovely and specialise obviously in Seafood but also cater for kids with pizzas available in all of them. The marina was quiet when compared to similar locations for example Villamoura in Portugal and other than restaurants and a couple of bars there isn't a lot going on - not a bad thing at all just something to be aware of if considering taking teenagers!

All in all a great property in a great location but maybe better with small kids rather than teenagers particularly with the very quiet location and poor wifi.

A lovely family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the apartment which was modern, bright and clean. The group of apartments was set in very attractive grounds and the swimming pool was great and somewhat larger than the pictures suggest. Porto Rotondo itself is really lovely with numerous restaurants around the harbour and a great icecream shop! Our only slight issue with the apartment was the balcony area as the insect nets either needed to be repaired or removed, but that in no way took away from our overall enjoyment.

Owner's Response: Annamaria and I are delighted that you enjoyed your holiday. We are embarrassed that you suffered the old insect nets. We left money and instructions at Easter time to replace the nets. Sadly nothing was done until Annamaria's son arrived just after you left. Now there are smart new screens that open and close, keep out the pigeons and the insects while allowing a view of the gardens beyond.

A beautifully presented apartment.

  • 5 of 5

A big thanks to Peter and Anna-Maria who have kept us fully informed throughout the whole booking process. The apartment is bigger than expected and in a lovely location. Sardinia is simply beautiful, and what a great apartment to explore the island from. The only concern is the lack of a bannister down the stairs, otherwise it's lovely. Hoping to return soon.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the perfect location for our Family . The Apartment is in a quiet area nestled among the trees on the hill . It is modern and has everything you need, aircon and TV's in all the rooms incl Wireless internet. It is well kitted out and comfortable living. Lots of information about the local area was given as well as Beaches in the surrounding areas, otherwise the owners are happy to give any advice. There is also now a swimming pool in the complex which is great when you want to have a cool down. Only issue if you have small children was the stairs in the apartment are exposed and have no railing, so extra care needs to be taken if you have toddlers etc. There is also no bath, only 2 x showers which if you have small children might be a issue, we had our 2 year old with us, and we managed the stairs fine, would of preferred a bath, but otherwise its a very smart place.

Porto Rotondo itself is amazing, will definitely be returning next year.

Caretaker who lets you in the apartment also has limited English, but the owner's partner is English, so no issues there if you need anything, very friendly and keen to help

Owner's Response: Dear Sean Many thanks for your enthusiastic review of Annamaria's property. We set out to give you the best holiday we can, so we are delighted to learn that you and your family enjoyed yourselves so much. We are addicted to Porto Rotondo to the extent that we returned for a week at the very end of September. We were fortunate. While much of Italy was suffering downpours we had seven days of calm and sunshine, blissful :-) Thank you so much for taking time to write your review, it is much appreciated by us both. Peter and Annamaria

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The listing was very accurate. This beautiful apartment is cool, immaculately clean and very comfortable with everything we needed. The owners are very helpful and quick to offer advice and assistance.

Located in a lovely quiet complex, very well maintained and full of flowers. The swimming pool - again very clean, great setting in a lawn surrounded by trees.

Excellent location - a quiet complex just 10 minutes walk from the port and plenty of restaurants, also 5 minutes walk from a small supermarket, chemist, bank etc. Nearest supermarket expensive - better to drive to one 10 minutes away.

One of the best holidays we have had - the beaches we explored all within 30 minutes drive were fantastic - crystal clear water, lovely sand, good amenities - although you have to get off the main road to find the real gems.

Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Dear Hazel We are delighted that your holiday met all your expectations, and more. We ourselves returned again in the last week of September and were blessed with glorious weather, not as hot as while you were there in August but still warm enough to go swimming every day. Thanks so much for your review, it means a lot to us to know you were so happy with your choice. Warm regards, Annamaria and Peter

Excellent Costa Smeralda base

  • 5 of 5

Well-equipped, spacious appartment set in charming gardens in walking distance of the restaurants and shops of Porto Rotondo. Owner, and local agent, very helpful. Not suitable for anyone who has difficulty coping with steps, and not advisable for small children due to the open staircase. However, an ideal base for exploring the Costa Smeralda and beyond. A car is advisable, though there is a local 'beach' bus serving the many lovely beaches and coves around Porto Rotondo. We were very impressed with the region, and with Sardinia in general, and would certainly consider staying here again in the future. Note that it is advisable to know at least a small amount of Italian as English is not widely spoken.

Location

From the Owner

I grew up in a town beside the sea and have fond memories of those times. Twenty years ago I visited Sardinia for the first time and from then on I have returned time and again for my holidays. It is a very special place; the air is rich with the scent of wild plants and shrubs, such as the famous myrtle which is used to make a strong liqueur, and in cooking to flavour roast meats. The constantly changing vistas of blue skies, sandy beaches and turquoise seas always evoke strong emotions in me. The sea views in particular are almost unreal with an armada of pleasure boats of every description all apparently stationary despite their full sails and powerful engines. It is a sight full of ‘spirituality’.
