About Malcolm Buteux

Hello and thank you for showing an interest.

We are an English / French couple. We have lived in Perfugas for most summers for the last 5 years. We have enjoyed hunting the hidden gems of this region and share our discoveries with family and friends. Running a holiday villa is a natural progression from that.

Please feel free to contact us for any further information you would like to have about the property or the area.

Kind Regards,

Malcolm and Valerie

Malcolm Buteux purchased this villa in 2011

Why Malcolm Buteux chose Perfugas

We first fell in love with the Anglona and Gallura regions when we were house hunting 8 years ago. This stunning countryside, surrounded by red tinted mountains is what attracted us first. The proximity to the beach and the warmth of the local people won us over.

What makes this villa unique

What makes this villa truly unique is that it is set in a natural, rural environment that is so tranquil that it is rare to even hear a car. And yet you are only 25 kms from the seaside.

You also have your very own bronze age monument on-site in the form of a 3500 years old Nuraghe ruin (Tower built by the Nuragic civilisation. They are also the people who built the sacred well you can see in the centre of Perfugas).

Our pool is rather unique in having a salt electrolysis system that leaves your skin, hair soft and your eyes clear.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The villa and area has so much to offer - for me the silence and black sky at night were a shear joy, but, just being able to melt into the landscape was equally great.

I think the danger is that there are so many things to see and do

that you can easily get drawn into sitting in a car and spending all

day chasing the horizon.

However, for me it was a great place to chill out, read, write and

draw and enjoy the quiet with loads of wildlife for company. We would rate 10 out of 10 for both facilities, welcome, your help and attention.

Quitness and perfect view

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four, two adults and two girls at the age of 4 and 7. When arriving at Villa Nuraghe, coming from Alghero, we were struck by the quietness and the beautiful view. We felt at home straight away, which Val and Malcom only enforced by making a thorough introduction to the area and all the different local opportunities. We really enjoyed our stay - many days relaxing by the pool and exploring the paths around the house. When our girls weren't in the pool they were exploring the grounds and all the lizards lying on the rocks. We highly recommend the Villa and will probably go back at some stage. The hospitality of the owners was overwhelming. Even when our youngest hit her head, Val and Malcolm showed up with a bag full of first aid. So if you want to go somewhere quiet with a pool and plenty of exiting things to do, don't hesitate to choose Villa Nuraghe. All the best, Heidi Mortensen, Denmark.

most tranquil property with only sheep araound

  • 5 of 5

We (couple mid 40ies) chose the villa nuraghe as a base to explore the north of Sardinia and spent one week there - too short. We were looking for something tranquil - and it really was. Within a range of some 100s of meters there was nothing - but sheep with their bells and on the property itself lizards. Since the huge property is sourrounded by stone walls and macchia we felt very private.

After a long drive from Cagliari (with the directions we had got we found the villa immediately) we had a warm welcome from the owners - Malcom and Valerie -, who explained everything in the house and on the property. We found everthing described and more. There were al lot of sitting areas scattered on the property - so we could find the perfect relaxing place at any time of the day. The pool was lovely and very clean. House and garden were clean and well-kept. The kitchen was well-equiped and we were encouraged to use the herb garden and to eat the garden fruits (grapes, almonds, pomegranate - there were also some fig-trees). We could have breakfast in the morning sun (not so hot) and dinner in the shade of the pergola on the terrace.

Valerie was very helpful to make a reservation for dinner at a recommended agriturismo (Putzu Canu) which offered traditional sardinian cuisine.

We wished we had stayed longer and can fully recomend this place. We wish to come back one day.

Gorgeous location, excellent villa.

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 2 weeks here and thorougherly enjoyed every minute of it. Villa Nuraghe is a delight, it catered for our every need on the inside, especially liked the fact that each bedroom had its own bathroom, so we didn't have to share with the kids! Outside the grounds are amazing, so many different areas of the garden to explore which was great fun for the children, whilst being safely enclosed so we could leave them to their own devices.

The owners were more than accommodating, so friendly and always happy to help.

Sardinia is a beautiful country, with some excellent beaches, and the villa enabled us to have a wonderful holiday.

Lovely fortnight in Villa Nuraghe

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful holiday in the unspoilt island of Sardinia.

Val and Malc greeted us on our arrival and treated us like old friends, lovely couple.

Huge grounds with a partial Nuraghe tower, lovely pool, numerous sitting areas scattered around with loungers everywhere, sheer bliss.

My wife was in heaven with numerous fig trees with ripe fruit, almonds and grapes growing up a vine over a covered pergola, sheltering a huge table and dining chairs alongside a built in BBQ, which we used every night. We used this sitting area for every breakfast, lunch and dinner whilst looking at the view over the valley.

My brother in law was very excited to see a large land tortoise at the bottom of the drive, also had a resident toad,praying mantis and a few little harmless snakes and numerous lizards.

The villa was well equipped and comfortable with a bonus of two on suites.

Val and Malc directed us to a wine cooperative in the local town of Perfugas, where for two euros they dispensed a litre of excellent red wine, this outlet satisfied all our wine needs for the holiday.

Hope to return in the future.

Idyllic location, beautiful villa, perfect hosts

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the afternoon after a long drive from the other side of the island for a week of relaxation at Villa Nuraghe; as we climbed up the valley and away from the main road we started to realise that after lots of searching around the internet we had definitely picked the right property.

Malc and Val were waiting to hand us the keys and give us a quick tour around the property just pointing out useful bits of information as to where everything was and how things worked so that we could enjoy our stay. As they live nearby they have lots of local knowledge on where to visit depending on what you are interested in.

The property itself was perfectly clean inside with two en-suites and everything you would expect in terms of appliances along with extra touches such as a dishwasher, a great walk-in shower, four-poster bed and a selection of books. That said we spent almost all of our time outside in the beautiful weather either cooling off in the pool, watching the sun go down from the top of the garden or at the stone barbecue while drinking local wine and cheese from the co-operative shops in town. The weather in July meant that it was more than comfortable to sit out until after 11pm so you don't need to cut your day short to make sure you're back in time to cook outside.

Malcolm's top tip of opening some of the windows to let the sea breeze in during the evening cooled the villa to just the right level, a satisfying, natural alternative to noisy air conditioning units.

If you can drag yourself away from the pool I would also recommend visiting some of the beaches which can be found just 20-30 minutes away with some of the clearest waters I've ever seen. If you enjoy snorkelling there are plenty of fish to look out for. For some local food visit the Agri-Turismo restaurant "Putzu" which has amazing views over the Sardinian countryside to complement its fantastic food and service. Val and Malc kindly booked this for us and were right to advise that we went there hungry because the food is in vast quantities and far too good to stop eating.

If you like outdoor swimming visit the pools at Tiempo, we spent a while finding them but when we got there had them all to ourselves.

We visited as a couple in our late twenties and would definitely recommend to others for a relaxing and romantic break with a location remote enough to be peaceful in the evenings but convenient enough so that you don't have to have everything planned in advance.

Peaceful, relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

Description of location and property was very accurate and the excellent service provided by Val & Malc was friendly yet unobtrusive. We enjoy walking and both the local countryside and the mountain areas are within easy reach and provided us a good variety of gentle strolls and more vigorous treks depending on the temperature!! Excellent local beaches and friendly local towns and villages made this a very enjoyable holiday. Hope to be back someday!!!
