Great views, further away from Castelsardo than map suggests

  • 3 of 5

Had a lovely weeks holiday at San Giovani. Pool was beautifully clean and great for the kids. The views from the apartment and pool were absolutely stunning, definitely the best thing about this rental. The apartment was clean with comfortable beds. Could have done with a few basics on arrival, such as toilet paper, washing up liquid etc. The one issue we'd make future holiday makers aware of was the location of the apartment. It is not where it is currently marked on the google map on the advert. It is further away from castelsardo, definitely a 10 minute drive away and not walkable. But that said it was a beautiful spot and we thoroughly enjoyed it.

Perfect for R&R and beautiful views

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the property for 11 nights at the beginning of July 2017 and had a lovely relaxing holiday. Set in a peaceful, rural location on the hillside 5 minutes drive out of Castelsardo, a car was essential to get around the area. There were wonderful views from the balcony and poolside, over the valley below to the coast, and even over to Corsica beyond. The property was well-maintained, clean, tidy and including everything as listed. The lack of wi-fi and British tv meant that the venue was a truly 'get away from it all' retreat. We enjoy cooking at home and the only negative was the restricted space and facilities for cooking. We just about managed for two of us, but would be very limited if there had been any more of us. There are, however, a range of excellent restaurants in Castelsardo town itself, with some having wonderful views of the sunset in the evenings. We highly recommend this property for a quiet, relaxing holiday.

Well worth it

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks in this appartment and thorughly enjoyed this location. The Apartment is about 5 minutes from Castelsardo and is situated in the quiet and peaceful location. When we arrived, the apartment and all utensils were clean. The facilities at the apartment were ideal - the pool which is at the top of the property is set in a 'sun-trap' which lasts from morning to late evening. It is cleaned regularly.

The apartment itself is well laid out with all modern equipment and facilities for holiday. The view is stunning and therefore, you will find that you spend most time on the balacony. Each apartment is also quite private.

We met the owners of the apartment while we were there - Brendan and Elaine - and found them most gracious and determined to make sure all was in order for us. They provided great advice - Badessi is the beach to use, shopping in Valladoia or the SISI at the port. They also gave good advice on restaurants in the location.

You will need a car for this location but this give you great freedom to travel further along the coast to the North East (St Theresa and Porto Cheivo etc). Allow yourself time - roads are windy!

We would full heartedly recommend this apartment to others.
