Beautiful villa with amazing sea views!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful first time in Sardinia and this gorgeous villa made it even better!! There's so much detail gone into every room and also the lovely gardens! But the best of all is the master bedroom which has a huge window looking out over the bay as well as a large patio door onto a balcony where you can see even more!! To wake up every morning and see the yachts on the sea and the Maddalena islands in the distance was amazing! You could probably see the sea from nearly every unusually shaped window!! The location of the villa was not far from many nice beaches and restaurants, and it was cleaned every other day. We would definitely recommend it and love to return again some day :)

Lovely stay, outstanding views, well maintained

  • 5 of 5

Villa is on a quiet street set among other villas, not a huge yard but very private and close to the beach. Lots and lots of flowers and blooming trees. We didn't use the pool (prefer the sea) but looked nice.

Well equipped kitchen (owners must cook a lot) but we chose to eat out most nights. One of the great things about the villa is you can walk to several great restaurants. No parking hassles, and felt free to have a glass or two of wine!

Furnishings are above average from our experience. Casual chic rather than glamorous. Could do with a bigger TV but not a big deal.

The outstanding feature of the villa is its views. Pictures don't do it justice. Really nice to watch the boats go by and sunset over Corsica. Views of the mountains in the back are equally nice. Breakfast on the top terrace is truly incredible. Heaven.

We love the Costa Smeralda and would love to stay at the villa again but its a long trip from the USA.
