Beautiful characteristic 3 bedroom house near the sea



Updated: 27-Nov-2016
Beautiful 3 bedroom house near the sea with patio garden and sea views

The house 'Mimosa', which we lovingly restored to retain the original characteristics whilst giving all the comforts, consists of large lounge with Antique Sardinian Ottoman which can be used as an extra single bed, and wood burning fire, dining room with open kitchen with all facilities for cooking. Master double bedroom, 2nd double bedroom, 3rd bedroom with twin beds, and a large, beautiful bathroom with all conveniences including a huge open shower. There is a washing machine and laundry area; a storeroom with a separate toilet, there is also a T.V., with USB, jack and PCMCIA a stereo, with jack to play music from your phone or pods, in the lounge, and a newly updated free, fast Wi-Fi Internet connection, so that the entire family can keep up to date with friends and work as they wish. The house has its own courtyard garden at the front with a large table for eating 'al fresco', a BBQ and a couple of sun loungers. 500 metres down the road is an ‘Agriturismo’ or farmers restaurant, where the proprietor produces everything served on the table, including salami, pecorino (sheep’s cheese), home made pastas, suckling pig, Sardinian sweets and great local wine and liquors and of course one can walk home.

Dear Vittoria and David,

Thank you so much for lending us Mimosa. We have all fallen in love with Sardegna - the beaches, the mountains, the villages and the hot springs.

Thank you particularly for all your help on the first day with the car, for your friendly welcome and for our first prickly pears - delicious.

With many thanks from us all

Our first visit to Sardinia ... It certainly won't be our last !

Mimosa welcomes you with authentic rustic charm and cosiness. The loving restoration brings out the best of its features , the wow factor lies deep in its heart. Relaxing on the patio with a Sicilian bar b q , a stunning sunset in the background is the icing on the cake.

David and Vittoria are fantastic hosts .Helpful from the moment we booked, through to ensuring attention to detail during our stay - we wanted for nothing . Home grown produce and organic wine a welcome treat .

Their local knowledge is endless with help on info regarding bike hire, guiding us to the best beaches (of those there are many !!) , and much more .

Badesi is a jewel in The Sardinian crown with so many beautiful places to explore .

We are sure to return , there's so much more to enjoy - ensure the delicious wine is stocked up please !

Su and Paule xx

Very nice house with beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed for 12 days in house Mimosa and had a very nice stay. The house was very comfortable and cozy and the view from the roof terrace is spectacular, you can see the sea from there. The enviroment of the house is very good, with lovely beaches nearby and other nice places to visit. Bring your snorkel gear, the water is very clear! The owners have really helped us when we had a collision with car, they are very friendly people. We hope to come back ones! Thanks a lot, Best regards, Laura, Mieke and Mariette from the Netherlands

Owner's Response: Many thanks to Laura and friends, it was good to hear from them on several occasions during their stay about their adventures locally and some of the favourite places that they discovered, it all helps us to pass on information to other guests. We were pleased to help them with the problem they had with the car, as we say to all our guests, 'if you have any problems or need any help during your stay we are always only a phone call away, so don't hesitate to ask'.

Beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

Your beautiful house.

We felt privileged to stay, in your delightful house, with so many personal touches, and having learned, towards the end of our sojourn, that you both were ‘Artists’ it explained everything. We enjoyed out little chats, about your former lives in London, about the wonders of Sardinia, about where to take trips, about your permaculture farm, your goats and sheep and geese, and all the rest. We had a super holiday, great sunny days in superb locations on the coast and up in the mountains, to return to our peaceful ‘borrowed’ house and watch the sun setting over the sea with a glass of your lovely wine. Thank you.

Clean and Beautifully funrnished

  • 5 of 5

Best holiday we had in years, Mimosa is in a wonderful position, in a small hamlet with the sea in the near distance in front, and the mountains rising at the back. A village with all amenities in both directions, Bar for cappuccino in the mornings or a glass of wine in the evening, a relaxing walk away. Fabulous Sardinian farmers restaurant 500 metres down the lane, the suckling pig melts in your mouth, but you must go hungry, as the dishes just keep coming, and the wine. I think we paid €27 a head for as much as you could eat and drink, then a relaxing, somewhat tipsy strole back to the house.

The house was clean, well organised, stylishly furnished with a great bathroom and fab shower. Vittoria and David were very helpful and supplied us with some tasty white eggs, haven’t seen them in years, some goats milk and yoghurt and some of their great organic wine, which went down well, oh and some homemade chutney’s great with the local sheep’s cheese, my favourite was zucchini chutney, whereas Emily preferred the apricot.

After a day getting sizzled in the sun on one or other of the stunning bays or coves, coming back to the house and sitting on the patio with a glass of organic wine and watching the sun setting over the sea, GREAT STUFF.

Thanks guys

Owner's Response: Wonderful to hear that you enjoyed our house, and all the local foods we suggested, we remember your delight on having found some of the local Porcini mushrooms in the woods nearby. Good to hear that above all, your visit, in November was a success, we believe that Sardinia has something to offer, all year round. Thanks for all your compliments, and look forward to seeing you again in the summer. Vittoria+David

A beautiful holiday in Sardinia

  • 5 of 5

A really amazing place to stay. The house is wonderful; lovingly restored with huge attention to detail by the owners; who are more than hospitable to newcomers to Sardinia. You really feel comfortable as soon as you arrive and start to enjoy ' Sardinian life '.

The property is situated in a brilliant location with incredible views of sunsets and clear dark starry skies. Trips to beaches, mountains, the river with it's hot springs, typical Sardinian towns with interesting shopping opportunities and of course the wine shop are within easy reach.

This is a well maintained, welll equipped, clean, beautiful place to stay which I will be visiting again and would not hesitate to recomend it my family and friends; in fact I have already done so.

Owner's Response: Thank you Sarnie for your supportive review, glad that you appreciated our restoration of the property, We remember you raving about the bathroom, and saying the photo's on the website did not do it justice. It seems you have enjoyed all the things that made us fall in love with this part of Sardinia, which is exactly what we had in mind when we began to rent the property, to share these thing with others. So we are happy when our guests ask for advise and suggestions as you did and we shall be pleased to see you, your family or your friends whenever they would like to visit. Sardinia has lots of different things to offer all year round, and we are always pleased to indicate places or fiestas or anything of interest that is going at the time, and of course where to buy the best local wines. Thanks again Vittoria+David

This beautiful characteristic house, with spectacular views out across the valley to the sea and the medieval castle of Castelsardo and further to the island of Asinara, is set on the outskirts of the hillside hamlet of Azzagulta. Situated in the magnificent area of Gallura in the North of Sardinia, within easy driving distance of the many and varied coves, bays and white sand beaches of the crystal clear seas of both “Costa Paradiso” and “Costa Smeralda”. The house is 9 minutes from the fabulous long white sand beach of Badesi Mare, where there are facilities for various water sports, several café bars on the beach, deckchairs and loungers for hire, and of course the wonderful clear turquoise sea. There is a thermal section of river nearby, where one can bathe in the healing waters, take a mud bath or just relax on the rivers beach and soak up the wonderful atmosphere, there is also a Thermal swimming pool with a water massage pool. The local villages of Viddalba and Badesi are 5 minutes away in each direction, and between them you will find all facilities. Badesi is an important wine region and there are several 'Cantinas' where you can taste and buy the local wines.

Other Activities: Thermal Spa of Casteldoria (10 mins,) Where you can take some spectacular therapies, relaxing massages and chill.

The water park at Isola Rosa is worth a visit with the kids.

A trip to the oak forests in the mountains will reward you with Porcini and various other mushrooms in season.

Check out local fiestas, always fun.

Visit the various Ancient Sites, Sardinia has more buildings of 2000-5000 years old than of 300 years old, fascinating.

Canoeing on the lakes of the River Coghinas is a beautiful experience.

For those who like walking, it is possible to walk along the coast from Isola Rossa to Costa Paradiso fantastic beautiful sea views.

If you like any of these ideas, just ask Vittoria+David, who will be happy to set you in the right direction.
