The island of Asinara: Asinara is a nature park and it is famous for its perfectly preserved landscapes and its underwater world. On this island it is possible to see the famous wild white donkeys, the only species remaining in Europe. the perfectly preserved landscape and nature is due to the fact that historically it used to be a leper hospital and later it was transformed into a maximum security jail. The Alcatraz of Italy held famous mafia characters such as Toto Reina. Thus, the island remained unspoilt from the polluted hands of mankind, before being transformed into the present nature reserve. The island can be reached by boats leaving daily from Porto Torres.

Jogging and bicycle riding: The villa is situated by the bicycle path that runs by the coastal promanade with beatiful seaside views. After 4km it comes to an end in the refreshing pine forrest.

Bird watching and archelogical remains.: Twenty minutes by car you can find the enormous ponds of Pilo and Platamona, famous for their rare and wondeful species of sea birds and migrating birds. Birds of pray have also nested there due to the vast amount of pray that can be found there.

In Porto Torres it is possible to visit the museum of roman ruins and it is possible to have a guided visit round the remains. The town was a roman colony until 200AD until it was destroyed by a Tsunami.

Great holiday house

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 3, 2012
  • Stayed: Jul 2011
We stayed in Sardinia for two weeks and the whole family agrees that our summer holiday was very successful. The house was great and suited our needs perfectly. We were six adults and three children and it is not always easy to find a summer house that accommodates so many. It was comfortable for us all and the facilities were excellent. The kitchen was well equipped which made it easy to cook for the whole group even though the needs were different for every age-group!
The piazza was very useful - we were amazed that in this little garden there were always sunny spots somewhere, from early morning till late afternoon/evening.
The location of the apartment is very good, with two beaches and a shop very close by. All in all as convenient as we could possibly ask for.
What we did most of all appreciate though was the owners hospitality and willingness to help throughout our stay. We found it invaluable to learn from him about Sardinia as we knew shamefully little about the history and culture of this beautiful island beforehand.
We were very thankful for his patience with all our inquires and tourist information during our stay.
Many greetings from Iceland

Big house, with lots of space for groups to cook and eat. I was just there as one person and it was nice that the rent is based on the number of people, so if there are only a few of you it is a good budget option and if there are a lot of you its a great budget option as there is plenty of space for you all to fit in!

On the budget note, self catering is really easy at this property as there is a big (and well equiped) kitchen and within walking distance you will find a huge supermarket for your basics and lots of great little specialty stores stocking local delicacies. If you're not up for cooking there are some nice well-priced restaurants, also in walking distance.

The owner will be happy to advise you about the local specialties, he's a great character and helped me out by letting me know about the local area, as well as some of the history (and was even kind enough to act as an interpreter at the museum for me!). The pick up and drop off service to the ferry was also really great! Much appreciated!!

Porto Torres is also a great place to stay as a base for exploring Sardinia with a rental car, alternatively I found you could get to Assinara island, Sassiri and Algehro (and the amazing Neptunes caves) via public transport, and there is also a really beautiful walk along the coast and through a pine forrest ending at a big beach if you are staying around the area. Its a great place to relax, enjoy the natural beauty of Sardinia and slow your life right down!

Relaxing spacious holiday house!

  • Submitted: May 24, 2010
  • Stayed: Apr 2010
This was our first visit to Sardinia and we were pleasantly surprised. Unlike some of our other holiday experiences in other countries, we were greeted here with a very warm and friendly welcome by Mr. Bottaro (the owner). Like the other guests, we would definitely recommend to rent a car as Sardinia offers so much to see. We stayed for 11 days, yet I think to see all of what Sardinia has to offer one could stay quite a bit longer.

The house is located in a very central location in Porto Torres with almost everything within walking distance. With the house we were really very happy as it was more than big enough for us (three adults and two small kids) and had everything we needed. It has three bathrooms and even two kitchens (summer and winter), which was something we’ve not come across before. The owner was also exceptionally helpful and hospitable and above many other positive things also had many suggestions of things to do and places to see and also gave us very interesting historical information about Porto Torres and Sardinia.

We can only recommend this house to anyone wishing to visit Sardinia.

Again we would like to thank Mr. Bottaro for all the help, his hospitality and friendliness as at times he went out of his way to cater for us.

Many greetings from Bremen.

Large family of 8 - UNFORGETTABLE Italian holiday!

What a Wonderful Holiday !!!

Porto Torres is a perfect authentic Italian/Sardinian town which has been totally unspoilt by tourism and is therefore ideal for both families and groups.

The house is very spacious, very clean and well-maintained. It has a large courtyard at the front and a smaller one at the back. All amenities, restaurants and bars are within walking distance.

There is a wonderful promenade which leads you to all the local beaches and we suggest you to follow the promenade all the way round just before the sun is setting as the redness of the setting sun covers the sea.

On the whole we had a fabulous time and would definitely reccomend it. The owners and extremely helpful people which made our stay all the more pleasant!

We had a very good time

Porto Torres a town with a terrible ugly skyline, but with a pleasant and nice Sardinian atmosphere. The town is strategicly located if you have a car. There are many nice beaches both in the town and nearby. It was convenient for us to drive to Stintino, Alghero, Costa Smeralda etc.
The owner of the house gave us personal service and a hospitality that made our stay even better.
The house was located at a busy street. It had all needed facilities with a nice courtyard. We were eight people in the house and we all had enough space (and warm water).
It was our first time that we rented a house via HomeAway. We are very pleased and most likely we will do it again and we will also recommend others to do the same.

We can recommend other guests to rent the house.

We think that Porto Torres have a touristic potential, but today a car or other means of transportation is necessary.

Owner's Response: I would like to thank Dolphine for their positive review. I would like to add, for those of you that have never been to this town, that Porto Torres is devided into two distinct areas. One is the old town, near the seaside; the other one is the industrial zone which is on the west part of the coast and far away from the main town centre, where the house is situated.
The house is very central to all local aminites, such as shops and restaurants, which are used by all the locals. For this reason it is ideal for anyone renting the property. However, the house does have an spacious internal courtyard to the front and back, providing it with a quiet and relaxing environment.
In order to take full advantage of all that Sardinia offers in the surrounding areas, a car is advisable. However, for those of you who do not have the possibility to drive or hire a car, the owner does offer a pick-up and drop-off service to and from the airport.
