Overview

About the property

Spacious apartment, perfect location in quiet setting, close to beaches, sleep 4

Nice quiet location, less than an hour from Cagliari airport, nobody wants to go to the same beach every day. So this is perfect as you have easy access north and south to all the best beaches.

sleeps up to 4 persons comfortably with plenty of space, there is one very large bedroom with double bed, a long corridor leading to a large bathroom with shower etc, next to the bathroom is a utility room with washing machine, next is the kitchen which is based on an old styled kitchen with the original sink in porcelain, there is an archway to a large living room with table and chairs, sofa which converts into a bed for 2 persons, wood burning heater which runs on wood pellets. For the winter trekkers, Outside there is a view of the mountain, lots of trees and plants.

The Windows have wooden shutters which can be opened or closed, these help keep the inside cool in the hot summer days.

One of the main features with this property is its peaceful setting in a small village with around 200 habitants.There is a small shop, a local church and school. Outside there are views of the mountain and the sound of birds that will bring a nice feeling of being close to nature, ample parking. Close by there the park of Marganai which is a nature reserve and renowned for its natural beauty rare plants and flowers, plus it has one of the oldest forests in Europe. Iglesias is just 5klm around 6 mins by car, beaches around 15 mins by car so making this an ideal location for a relaxing holiday. This area is a good base for exploring the beaches north and south and there are many, and many people return to San Benedetto for that reason. The apartment is in a perfect location with easy access to north and south beaches, plus just 45 mins drive from Cagliari airport.

From September onwards this area takes on a whole new different meaning, as the main tourists head off back home as the kids return to school, then arrive the more adventurous people who don't want just sunbathing on a sandy beach, they want to explore this very undiscovered place of the Sulcis of Iglesias on the south west coast of SARDINIA.

Trekking has become very popular right through the winter months, as the climate is perfect with organized groups or just do your own thing, but without help you may miss some of the best things or routes. I can also help you with that and am more than willing to show you around.

The cottage is perfect for this with many routes just outside your door to the old mountain passes or a short drive to some of the best coastal trekking you will find.

Then when you return to the cosy cottage with the wood burner which runs on wood pellets roaring away because you set the timer to come on prior to your return, then open a nice full bodied red wine that you bought when you went wine tasting at our local vineyard at Aru winery, which I can arrange. In fact if you like we can even trek there from the cottage and return by car.

Also many sports are available in this area, and some things can be hired all you need to do is ask and I'm sure it's here.

Rock climbing is available at Domusnovas, masua, Punta pilocca, all within a short distance.

For those who dont want to drive i can offer free pick up from the train station at Iglesias, where there is a link from Cagliari airport.

About Stephen Morgan

My name is Stephen Morgan I moved to Iglesias in Sardinia to get out of the rat race and have not looked back since. Sardinia is a beautiful country and in terms of tourism is very undiscovered and a peaceful place to live. I enjoy fishing, snorkelling in crystal blue waters and hiking and mountain biking in the mountains or along stunning coastal paths. I live in a small house in the country which i built myself and grow some of my own fruit and veg and live a very healthy Mediterranean lifestyle. You are always welcome to join me on my adventures. I think it is very important to contact a person before booking so you can get as much info as possible not just chuck and chance, so you can always find me or follow me in facebook, whatsapp, google, or even contact me on skype. So why not give me a call its free, I would lov e you to call.

Stephen Morgan purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Stephen Morgan chose Carbonia-Iglesias

This property was first one house on two floors, i then turned it into two small apartments when i restored it.

Mainly so my grown up children can use it for holidays etc, but in the end i decided to sale one of them as my family always ended up staying with me, because they like my cooking i think?

Anyway it is now available to rent as a holiday home, i think it is in a nice location very quiet, not to far from the beaches, close to Iglesias, and surrounded by mountains keeping it cool in the long hot summers we enjoy here.

Parking is no problem there is ample space outside.

Cagliari is just 45 mins by car making this an ideal vacation rental.

What makes this apartment unique

I supose the main feature has to be that it is so covenient, peaceful and quiet, although you have to drive to beaches the position is perfect to explore beaches north and south, the coolness you feel on returning from a hot beach. There is all the normal outdoor recreation on hand with some lovely walks. If you love peace and quiet you will love this place. it is a paradise for outdoor recreation like Mountain biking, trekking, rock climbing, bird watching. Who wants crowded beach locations?

Also in the lower seasons I would have no problem assisting you for trekking etc and maybe see places you would not normally see.
