CASA ANNA, SEA VIEWS IN CALA GONONE, SARDINIA

Cala Gonone Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 shower room, sleeps 4

Enjoying superb panoramic sea views, Casa Anna ideal for your Sardinia summer sun holidays is perched high above a bay of pink shingle sand on the southern fringes of the small resort of Cala Gonone.

Part of a genteel hillside development of forty or so terraced and privately owned holiday apartments, Casa Anna, was by far the nicest one we were offered, being particularly well furnished and maintained, plus having the advantage of a pretty little garden to the rear, complete with shady purpose built barbecue area.

Cala Gonone: South of Orosei, beyond the enterprising and prosperous town of Dorgali famous for its leather, ceramics and filigree jewellery, lies the village of Cala Gonone. Until recent times, this independent community of seafaring folk was only accessible by boat or on foot by a perilous path hewn out of the cliff-side. However, thanks to the marvels of modern engineering, Cala Gonone can now be reached via a road tunnel that cuts straight through the mountainside to reveal a splendid panoramic view of the Golf of Orosei. From the tunnel’s exit, a steep and winding road leads down through wooded hillsides, (still inhabited by wild boar!) until you reach the village centre with its tree-lined promenade, restaurants, shops, fine sandy beaches and colourful fishing harbour.

From The Harbour : There are regular boat trips to the many fabulous beaches to the south of the village, which are virtually inaccessible by land. Cala Luna the nearest is recognised as one of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia, with high cliffs protecting a glorious crescent of white sand and a lagoon fringed by pink Oleander. Further south are numerous smaller coves such as Cala Sisine and the evocatively named Ispuligidenie, and all have the remarkable crystal clear turquoise waters for which Sardinia is renowned.

Nearer to Cala Gonone the extraordinary cave of Bue Marino can also be visited by boat and has 900 metres of well-lit tunnels and underground streams to explore.

As well as incredible stalactites, the cave contains a number of prehistoric cave drawings and until the 1970’s was the habitat of the rare and timid Monk seal.

The Coastal Waters: Here are some of the cleanest in the entire Mediterranean with a wealth of marine flora and fauna, as well as historical artefacts littering the ocean floor. If you are interested in scuba diving, our old friend, Fabio is a qualified diving instructor and runs a diving school in Cala Gonone. Being local born and bred, he knows all the best dive sites in the area! Fabio, naturally, is always delighted to organise a few dives ranging from half-day introductory taster sessions to a wide choice of full diving courses, so if you are interested, please contact us for further details.

Finally, if you really crave excitement, just north of Cala Gonone, the entrance of another huge cave is the awesome venue for bungee jumping, but check your insurance first!

Guestbook comments from the manager
Just got back from an amazing stay in Casa Anna in Cala Gonone. The apartment was very comfy and the views from the terrace were stunning. Cala Gonone has everything you need for the perfect holiday including being able to rent a motor boat or a kayak for the day. There were lots of great restaurants too but being able to eat a lunch of local meats, cheeses, bread and fruit on the terrace was bliss. We are already planning our next trip to Casa Anna. It was great being able to use the parasol and beach mats from the apartment too, a thoughtful addition. Thank you!

Quiet, near town, great sea view

  • 4 of 5
Enjoyed our morning walk down the steep hill for a dive below the cliffs, restaurants and shops in town within walking distance.
To reach good sand beaches (we enjoyed beach approx 10 km north), you need a car and a driver for narrow winding roads - or a boat ride to the beaches south.
Useful setup of rooms, kitchen etc. - no problems.
Desciption of "garden" made it bigger in my mind than I found it...
Good info on town and surroundings found in appartment.
Access by car difficult. Parking provided - but not for the feeble-minded.
Would stay again.(family aged 17+45+60)

Abba Virde Jardino

  • 5 of 5
Abba Virde Jardino is perfectly located in Cala Gonone. However the Freelance map describing how to get there once in Cala Gonone was extremely inaccurate. It took us an hour, and only thanks to a map provided by the hotel l'Oasi, to reach Abba Virde in the heart of the labyrinth. The basic problem was we were told to take the road Marco Polo but there was no road sign along the route we were instructed to take. People met, mainly tourists, had no idea. We learned later that the position of road signs are a big joke in Sardinia. The other thing is that you would have to be a very good driver to negotiate and reverse in the steep road of Abba Virde.
As for the apartment, its 60 sq. metres is perfect for 2 in a hot country and the extra room is very useful to store baggage and as a dressing room, since the main bedroom was small. We loved the spacious, open-plan, rational layout of the living area with its super kitchen. Beautiful colour scheme with terracotta tiles, leaf-green furnishings and perfect furniture. It was appreciable to have the small, private garden, suspended over the town and sea, as well.
The apartment was generally very clean. However some details had been overlooked: dustbin area under the sink could do with a freshen-up, windows, especially the picture one, needed a clean; in the garden, the odd broken clothes-peg and dead leaves could have been gathered up. I would also suggest that the divan cover and cushions get a wash -they weren't dirty, but could have been fresher.
There were a few mosquitoes, possibly due to the small, still pond home of the tortoise but also a breeding ground for insects that bite.
Re provision of linen, there were not enough bathtowels provided, no shower mats and no dish-towels in the kitchen. At the price we paid (over 1000 euros for 1 week) I would also expect a little welcoming gift package on arrival with a few products for the bathroom.
We had a problem meeting up with Carola the Freelance Rep. as we were fast asleep from the exhaustion of getting there at 9h30am when she passed, unknown to us, but after our meeting, we were won over to her charm and professional service. She was lovely.Recommended restaurant: Il Cormorano (Zuppetta di Pesce) and Il Pescatore (mixed fish.) Not recommended: a broken-down dinghy we rented from Malu. It stopped mid-sea near dangerous rocks and we had to be rescued by a passing boater able to do a temporary repair. Global holiday evaluation : Excellent
