VILLA IN PEACEFUL WOODLAND SETTING WITH FOOTPATH ACCESS TO GLORIOUS SANDY BEACH

Santa Teresa Gallura House Rental Photos and Description

Two bedroom villa (sleeps up to 5 people) newly renovated large, private garden

The Viletta Rosaspina, the closest to the sea of any of the holiday properties at Rena Majore. is a semi-detached holiday house with two double bedrooms, a living-room/dining area leading to a fully-equipped kitchen with hob, microwave, fridge-freezer and washing machine and a bathroom with shower and bidet. There is an additional fold-away bed for one in the second bedroom so the villetta can sleep 5 in total. There is a nice wood-burner (logs provided) to keep you cosy should there be cooler days in winter. The house is cleaned once a week with a change of sheets and towels. Outside is a garden of 1000 square metres which backs onto the pine woods. In front of the house is a covered terrace with table and chairs, so you can outside, and at the back is a patio area to soak up the afternoon sun. No other building is visible from the villetta. To reach the beach: either walk through the pine wood (7-10 minutes) or take the longer way round by road (15 minutes) with buggy or wheelchair.

SARDINIA

Lying pretty well midway between the more familiar islands of Majorca and Capri is the large, mountainous island of Sardinia, almost, but not quite, attached to the French island of Corsica. The accommodation is on the quiet north-west coast of the island, rather than the much-publicized, over-manicured and overpriced Costa Smeralda in the North East. The air is wonderfully clean and unpolluted, but has a heady floral scent of pines and the wild bushy vegetation that covers the island, known as MACCHIA (in France 'le maquis').

BEACHES

The sea is clean and of a striking combination of blue and transparent turquoise. There is a large picturesque beach just 2 minutes' drive from the property (or a 7-15 minute walk), but the marvellous thing is that there are another 5 or so beaches all within a 10-12 minute drive, and a further 5 less than 20 minutes away. As each beach has a different exposition, you can, if it's a windy day, choose a beach not exposed to the wind and thus be able to enjoy calm water for swimming and snorkelling. Unless, of course, you've gone for the windsurfing, something for which Sardinia is famous. Sardinia has only two clothes-optional beaches and one is the Spiaggia Montirussu around 4 kms from the villetta.

ACTIVITIES: WALKING & FISHING

But a holiday in Sardinia isn't just the beach. There are plenty of walks to be made, either along coastal paths, admiring the glorious coastal scenery and breathing in the sea air mixed with the scent of the MACCHIA; or through the pine woods and up into the boulderstrewn hills following one of the many tracks used by farmers and hunters. There's also fishing off the rocks (it's easy to get to the rocks, away from beaches, where the fish aren't frightened away by the bathers).

CULTURE & EXCURSIONS

There are day-trips to be made to the picturesque towns of CASTELSARDO and ALGHERO to the South-West; to the National parks of the MADDALENA ARCHIPELAGO and the ISLAND OF ASINARA; to local beauty-spots such as CAPO TESTA and CAPO D'ORSO where the wind and sea have sculpted the rocks into forms that remind one of animals or the work of our great C20th sculptors, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth; on a boat-trip round the Northern coast, visiting the uninhabited islands of the Archipelago, with lunch served on board; and even, why not, to Corsica (the amazing fortress town of BONIFACIO is just one hour by car-ferry from Santa Teresa de Gallura).

There is also much of cultural interest, using culture in its widest possible sense. Sardinia is as rich in prehistoric monuments as Wiltshire or Brittany; there are Carthaginian and Roman remains; handsome medieval churches and abbeys, mainly from the period of Pisan occupation; baroque churches and coastal watch-towers from the period when the island was controlled by Spain.

Local industries include the harvesting and working of cork (from the cork oak) and the working of granite (already prized by the Romans 2,000 years ago). The region's farmers produce very good wine (we particularly recommend the red CANNONAU and the white VERMENTINO DI GALLURA), excellent cheeses, and what must be amongst the best world's honeys. It's fun buying all of these directly from the farm if you have a few words of Italian.

FOOD

There's no shortage of pizzerie and good restaurants in the nearby town of Santa Teresa di Gallura (just 10 minutes away by car) where you can order fresh fish and local specialities such as Spaghetti alla Bottarga (fish roe), Porceddu (locally produced roast suckling pig) or Seadas (a delicious dessert made of pastry, cheese and honey), and finish your meal off with an espresso accompanied by the local liqueur digestivo, MIRTO, made from myrtle berries and served very cold. And talking of desserts, Santa Teresa di Gallura has really excellent ice-cream parlours (ice-cream made on the premises), bread shops, and pasticcerie where you can buy the famous dolci sardi (pastries and cakes etc) that are unique to the island, and really scrumptious.

FOLKLORE

Folk-festivals feature largely in the life of the Sardinians with each community having one or more special days (often a Saint's day) when the beautiful Sardinian traditional dresses are worn, dances are performed and local specialities consumed. In fact, there is so much to experience that one trip won't be enough!

Car: recommended

Rena Majore is a small, quiet, low-rise, holiday resort, developed in the pine woods of northern Sardinia which lead down to a magnificent coastline of cliffs, weirdly-shaped rock formations and long, sandy beaches bordering the warm, turquoise waters of the Mediterranean.

The main, commercial square at the centre of the village offers visitors two bars, a newsagent, a pub, various shops, two restaurant-pizzerias, a fishmonger, a butcher, two supermarkets, an ice-cream parlour and a pharmacy. In addition to the glorious beaches, the village also provides further recreational facilities in the form of tennis courts, a mini football pitch and a swimming pool.

Santa Teresa di Gallura (7 kms north, right at the tip of Sardinia on the Straits of Bonifacio) is a delightful and unspoilt harbour town and seaside resort, and thus stands in complete contrast to the soulless resort complexes of the Costa Smeralda of North-East Sardinia. The town was founded in 1808 by the Savoyard Kings of Sardinia to combat smugglers and the old centre is now a prosperous tourist magnet, still characterised by charming, historic vernacular architecture and home to speciality delis, many great restaurants, shops and other tourist facilities.
