Excellent apartment with great sea view
We had a lovely time in Cala Gonone. The apartment is brilliantly located to be able to access the town and beaches with ease, and has great sea views from the balcony. It was very well presented and is a perfect size for up to four people. Francesca was very helpful and accommodating. We have already been back there four months later, and can't wait to visit again!
Comfortable, light and airy 2 bed apartment
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay this Summer. The apartment was clean and spacious with front and back balconies which allowed plenty of much needed cool breeze. No air conditioning but the owners provided a fan. Very helpful and friendly owners, everything was explained to us clearly on arrival. We spent many evenings on the balcony enjoying the beautiful views. Our apartment was a top floor 2 bed one which suited us as we prefer a good view to outside space. We loved the resort and will definitely want to return.
lovely apartment in beautiful area
Spent a week here in end of June. Apartment was light, spacious and very well equipped. The owner is lovely and very helpful, and left us with directions when arrived late at night.
The beach and town with restaurants and shops are only a 5-10 min walk away, but yet apartment far enough away to be quiet.
Really enjoyed our stay and love Sardinia.
Convenient, modern, clean apartment
We had a great time. The apartment was perfect and the resort is very nice. It is a 10 minute walk to the beach and restaurants, but there are shops that are closer for food etc. I would definitely recommend this apartment and the owners wer helpful and charming. We loved Cala Gonone and will be back!
A great place for a family vacation.
I rented the apartment to spend there 1 week with my wife and our 2 kids. The contact with the owner and the whole booking process was smooth. The booking fee was reasonable and we closed the deal pretty quickly.
After arrival we were explained all the rules (especially around recycling) and started enjoying the apartment. We ordered the bed linen and the towels that were waiting for us in the apartment.
The apartment was nice, well equipped and having more than enough space for the four of us. All the furniture were in an excellent shape and all the things you may need in the kitchen were available. We were mostly spending the days outside, so I must admit the building is located so that either leaving Cala Gonone for a day trip or getting to the port or the main street was very easy. Especially in the evenings we used to have a nice walk to the port or the restaurants located nearby.
When in the apartment we were mainly enjoying the balcony, having a breakfast and sometimes dinner there. From the terrace there is a nice view at the sea and the mountains.
There is also a parking place in the backyard for multiple cars, so we didn’t have to worry where to park. To summarize – a nice apartment very well located for a reasonable price. I can truly recommend!
A spacious apartment with a good balcony
We stayed for 2 weeks in late June and had a great time. It's a nice, spacious apartment with a balcony overlooking a campsite and the sea, with a picturesque view of the mountains to the South. There is a hotel PA system nearby which can be a bit irritating, but they don't start too early and won't keep you awake, so if you are out during the day you will barely notice it. Cala Gonone itself is a pleasant resort, touristy but low-rise and if you avoid the high season very pleasant. The apartment is a good 10 minute walk from the town and/or beach. You will get fit coming back up the hill, but the local beach is excellent and the town is a good base for boat trips to other beaches and spectacular limestone cliffs. The family who run the apartment is friendly and really helpful. I recommend this apartment as a good base from which to explore the stunning coastline of eastern Sardinia. We hired a car; it's not essential, but it will allow you to explore inland, and the coastline to the north.
Activity and Interests
Cala Gonone is the privileged custodian of one of the most beautiful and attractive coastlines in the Mediterranean, almost certainly the longest without human settlements, thus preserving its virginal integrity. Here, the visitor is treated to emerald green sea, dense, uncontaminated forests on imposing mountains, and silent headlands, over which ancient, mystery-laden nuraghi keep watch. The coast, rich in deep fjords and only partially explored caves, offers the visitor the great “Sea Ox” cave, last refuge of the monk seal, with a journey rich in fascinating underground chambers, lakes, and veritable forests of stalagmites and stalactites. The countryside offers a towering range of mountains and valleys, where mysterious funereal monuments hide millennia of history: “Fairies’ houses”, “giants’ tombs” and dolmen testify to the deep religiosity of the ancient inhabitants of this land. Sea, sun, caves, excursions into undiscovered nature, hospitality, folklore, archaeology
Other Activities: Rock climbing, archeology.
