Completed New 5 Bedroom Villa Set In One Acre Garden, Tennis, Pool And Sea Views



Updated: 20-Oct-2016
Villa in Castelsardo, North Coast, Sardinia, Italy - Central Location Just Outside Castelsardo On Northern Coast 300 Metres From The Sea Front

Our villa is brand new for 2015 and has been rebuilt from the ground up from an original villa dating back many years. Villa Della Felicita translates to mean the Villa of Happiness and from the moment you arrive you get a feeling of contentment and happiness. We have tried to make the property light, modern and from an environmental perspective as eco-friendly as possible which is very much in keeping with the philosophy of the overall island. This means extra features like the latest solar power energy system (Sardinia has over 300 days of sunshine a year!), low energy hot water systems, a salt water pool (whilst more expensive to install it means you and your children can enjoy soft-water bathing with no red eye issues and best of all you are not drenched in Chlorine which is nasty stuff- the salt levels are nothing like the sea as they are very mild). We also have a comprehensive organic garden and a 350 sqm astro sports area with tennis, football, putting and much more.

About the Owner

My family and I have been lucky enough to travel most of the world and yet we always come back to Italy- more specifically Sardinia - for us its the best family location in the world. Italy is a country steeped in history and culture with breath taking architecture, landscapes and seascapes all of which, can be enjoyed with wonderful wine and exquisite food. Sardinia is the jewel in the crown.

Sardinia is a safe, beautiful, sophisticated, island where one minute you can be in the hustle and bustle, rubbing shoulders with A-list celebrities- the next, you can be on your own, as though you are on your very own deserted island of paradise.

To-date I have never met anyone that has not fallen in love with this island- described as the hidden gem of the Mediterranean.

Excellent family holiday villa!

  • 5 of 5

I booked the villa for a week for a family holiday as it appeared to have everything to suit our group - 3 years up to 70 years! It did not disappoint! Beautifully light, spacious and airy and decorated with Italian style and flair and superbly maintained.

The outside amenities were fantastic and we made good use of them all. Loved the little putting green!

We were lucky with the weather, average mid 20s, so bravely used the pool a couple of times.

The orchard provided lemons perfect for G&Ts and a few ripe figs too!!

Alex could not have been more helpful from my first enquiry with excellent emailed information on the villa, the locality and Sardinia.

Rhondda and Giovanni were very helpful throughout although, sadly, I didn't meet them as my daughter arrived before us. Provisions were bought in and lasagnes made for our first evening meal - thank you both so much.

Alex's recommendations were superb and we had great takeaway pizza & pasta from La Chica Piperita nearby.

Castelsardo, Alghero & The Grotte di Nettuno definitely worth visiting. Typically British we were the only people on the stunning 7Km beach at Marina di Sorso, but it was late in the season. Sea still warm enough for a swim though! We didn't get to the local beach, not easy to walk the busy part of the road with a lively 3 year old. Next time!!!

Do try an Agriturismo if you can. Check first if you have vegetarians amongst your group like us. A. Bedda Ista was superb and worth the drive into the mountains for lunch with superb views, and much veggie food!

Thanks again Alex for a great stay.

Amazing family holiday

  • 5 of 5

It was the first property we looked at in June last year and were so impressed by what we saw we contacted Alex the owner to book for August this year. When we arrived we were not disappointed, everything was as described and even better "in the flesh". Alex could not have been more helpful before the holiday and Rhondda & Giovani were fantastic on arrival and throughout our stay. Our ages ranged from 7 to 67 and we all enjoyed the facilities available to us at the villa, the pool was a particular favourite. We visited some wonderful places and ate some fantastic food. Everyone has already said they want to return next year. Again a great big thank you to Alex, Rhondda & Giovani for such a memorable holiday our family will talking about for a long time.

Fab Villa with all you need and more

  • 5 of 5

My family and plus ones stayed here with an age range from 22-55 and we had a fabulous time. Right from the start Alex could not have been more helpful with providing all the information we could want regarding the villa and the surrounding area. The villa is exactly how it appears. Super condition and fabulous facilities. You cant get bored here! I would also like to thank very much the kind help and attention Rhonda and Giovanni gave in Sardinia. They were always on hand to make sure all was in order and so so useful with local tips etc. Thanks to them we had a brilliant time. Talk to Rhonda about the lovely local white wine!

This is an excellent villa for relaxing and providing a base to explore North Sardinia. You wont need to worry about a thing. I would highly recommend and would love to return.

Owner's Response: Hi Elizabeth, Those comments have made our day. Our guests always come first and we want to ensure they have a great time and hopefully experience something different. In my view, the best holiday places are often ruined by "over' tourism- Sardinia still has that true authenticity which makes it both rare and at the same time perfect for a family holiday to remember. Thank you again for your feedback

We stayed on a lovely island in a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

My family, friends and I have stayed in a few places in and around Italy over the past few years.

Most of the villas we have stayed at have seemed very dated, basic and a bit dark and drab.

What a wonderful surprise it was to arrive at this bright, modern and what I can only be describe as a beautiful villa.

We had a lovely basket of fresh organic vegetables and fruit picked from the gardens on arrival. They were available through out our stay from the large vegetable garden.

The grounds are beautiful and secure, our children were occupied from dawn until dusk- in the pool, playing tennis, golf, football, pool table, table tennis, darts, xbox and badminton.

We used the outdoor kitchen for all meals and it’s a beautiful area over looking the pool and garden. Inside the villa is immaculate with all the modern conveniences one would hope for, including great wi-fi coverage.

To get the best out of Sardinia, we found you need to explore. Our villa info pack gave us some excellent places to visit, lots of things to do, most of which were breath taking- notable mentions La Maddalena islands, Stintino, Alghero Old Town, Castelsardo. Le Pelosa Beach, Costa Paradiso (for Snorkeling), Neptunes Grotto and Donkey Island

There are lots of very nice restaurants within 5 minutes of the villa.

And finally - Giovanni and Rhondda provided great assistance for anything we needed night or day.

Fantastic villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

We took a risk and booked this villa while it still had artist's impressions on the web site. We were not disappointed. The villa is beautiful and extremely well equipped. We were a party of four adults and five children and there was plenty of room for all of us over the two weeks of our stay. Everything was clean and well-maintained throughout our stay.

At the villa we played lots of tennis (maybe a few balls in the field!) and did lots of swimming in the pool. Various penalty shoot out, table tennis and darts competitions also took place. We also helped ourselves to the great fruit, vegetables and herbs available in the gardens.

We like to get out and explore and the villa is in a great location for getting all over the north of Sardinia. We made it to the beaches at Stintino, had a boat trip from Alghero to Porto Conti and Neptune's Grotto (a great day out if you can do it). We also went North to Castelsardo and beyond to isola Rossa, Santa Theresa and Isola Maddelena. We visited numerous beaches in between all of which had great waves.

Lots of supermarkets to choose from and if you need any swimming, snorkelling, diving or fishing gear a 30 minute trip to Decathlon in Sassari will sort you out.

We mostly ate-in but had great take-away pizzas from the place Alex recommends in his information pack and a couple of lovely meals at La Ristacca by the beach (another recommendation) and very child friendly.

We had a great holiday in a beautiful villa that I thoroughly recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to both relax and use as a base for exploring.

From the Owner

The people of Sardinia have the longest live spans of anyone on earth- that's a great starting point for a relaxing place to have a villa and as a place to go on holiday! They put it down to the purity of the food and the special mystic qualities associated with the many natural water springs, dotted all over the island Also my father is Italian and I am a Sardinian citizen myself. The location of this property is excellent. You are central on the northern coast very close to the sea front (300m away). You are just minutes away from beautiful beaches, towns, villages and marinas- all unspoilt. You are surrounded by places to visit such as Stintino, the Paradise Coast, Coasta Smeralda and even the island of Corsica is only a few hours away.

Activity and Interests

Special interest holidays:

PADI dive centre 5 minutes away- I understand the full PADI open water qualification can be obtained in a week- I am thinking about it.

(The children and I snorkel off the various beaches and that is enough to totally amaze- it is another world and we spend days and days exploring this way- never did it before Sardinia)

Horse riding schools

Cookery schools

Sea and Harbor Fishing

Climbing and trekking

Cycling & Mountain Biking


All sorts of boats to hire

Top Vineyards with tours and tasting

Plus much more


The villa is 300 metres from the sea- as with most of Sardinia a car is best in order to fully explore this largely non-commercialised island.

The more famous beaches like La Bagnu or Eden are 5 minutes by car. In reality the entire northern coast is a wash with beaches, coves and gullies. No matter what time of year you travel, you will find all sorts of beaches to suit your needs such as empty beaches, busy beaches, rocky beaches, sandy beaches, diving beaches, fishing beaches and more.


The viila being centrally located on the northern coast means you have many choices.

The main airport at Alghero to the west is 35-40 minutes away- navigation is straight forward as its an island- head north, south, east or west in your general direction of travel and you will arrive. To the east is Olbia, the other main airport, which is 70-80 minutes away.

By ferry of Porto Torres is 30 minutes away

On arrival head for Castelsardo and you know you are 5 minutes away from the villa.


(By car)

Castelsardo - 5 mins

Sorso- 5 mins (authentic Sardinian small town with nice market)

Isola Rossa- 20 mins (beautiful harbor fishing village)

Paradise Coast- 30 mins (stunning snorkeling and seascapes)

Alghero- 35-40 mins (nice large harbor town with lots of interesting little shops)

Stintino- 35-40 mins- (stunning harbor- world famous La Pelosa beach)

Costa Esmeralda- 60-70 mins- (haunt of the very rich and famous-expensive!)

Corsica- (2.5 hours with ferry)

Further Details:

The villa was completed in March 2014- any more images can be seen here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/123555788@N07/sets/72157644573011463/ (just cut and paste this link into your browser) The external photos provided are extremely accurate representations of the final look of the villa (in fact it will look even better).

With this villa you have lots of choices.

If you choose, on arrival you can simply close the electric gates and stay put for a week or two.

You have more than enough onsite to occupy everyone. From the great private sports facilities, tennis, golf putting, basketball, pool, table tennis, football, a large swimming pool, orchards, vegetable gardens, full Internet wi-fi everywhere, smart TV's, DVD's, Xbox 360, games, full air-conditioning, outside eating, luxury accommodation, a separate apartment and much more.

If you do want to go out for the day then again you have so many choices. I love going round the various local markets- there is usually one on somewhere locally most days of the week.

Day trips to Stintino, the Paradise Coast, Costa Esmeralda (my 21 year old daughters favorite) or one of the many white or pink sand beaches, or maybe fishing down at Castelsardo harbor- all these things are within very easy reach.

Then there is eating out- again you have many choices. You are surrounded (within 5-10 minutes) with possible places. You can have wonderful home cooked Italian food from 3-4 euro's per ahead or both traditional and upmarket places in villages, along the road-side and by the sea from 8 euro's ahead and up.

If you want a feast then you can visit one of the many famous agriturismo farmsteads which offer traditional Sardinian dishes and homemade cured meats, vegetables, wines and lots of specialty dishes (make sure you are all hungry!)

Arrivals after 10pm at night will incur a local surcharge for the meet and greet service, to be paid locally
