We live in the Cotswold with our grown up children. The area is full of wonderful places to visit, charming little villages as well as trendy up market towns.
Italian life is wonderful living life to the full and we were inspired with Sardinia when on holiday in 2004 and decided to search for the ideal villa for our family holiday home. We fell in love with the west coast and all the beautiful beaches.
Family life is very special,having fun and spending time together is priceless,
we hope families and friends enjoy our second home is in Sardinia as much as we do.
Leigh Warriner purchased this villa in 2005
We love the west coast with its wonderful beaches and very relaxed way of life. It is very accessible from the 3 Major airports, Algerho being the closest. After viewing several properties we came across Il Frutetto, in total need of renovation but a good location, 15 minutes from the coast and busy towns offering good restaurants, culture, bars and night clubs.
Although we had lots of work to renovate it, we designed the villa
to suit couples or large families/friends.
We fell in love with the terrace and the original outdoor table and have updated it with tiles and modern finishes and built a wooden pagoda so the vines and roses still grow over and give lots of shade.
The villa has the best of both worlds, enjoying the coast, towns and villages but coming home to the calm and tranquil setting.
The stars and silence at night are amazing and not forgetting the pool for a last minute dip, the garden has wonderful lighting at night.
In the same hamlet a church, tennis courts, park, restaurant , local spring water and stunning water falls.
The villa large enough to sleep 9 people. The garden was large
and secure for children and enough area to put a pool in -
an essential for us English abroad.
Large private grounds with large outdoor swimming pool
15 minutes drive to the nearest beach-
sleeps 9 persons big enough for 2 families/large groups

We are 2 french family's 4 adults 4 children. We have enjoyed our stay at the villa, it is well equipped, very comfortable, clean and relaxing.
it was especially good for the children, they enjoyed the garden and pool and when it was very hot during the day they watched dvd and played inside. some evenings we walked down to the park where they played on the equipment. There is an excellent takeaway pizza in scano di montiferro if you don't want to cook and excellent restaurant in Flussio 5 minute drive away.
we would recommend this villa.
Just got back from our stay at this Villa in Sardinia and wanted to pass on our comments to anyone thinking of staying here.
The Villa although split into two buildings was ideal for our holiday especially as we were two families together and split ourselves between the two villas. Both Villas were very clean, spacious and well equipped for our stay with modern appliances and comfy beds. The pool area was perfect for the children to cool off and splash around in and their was plenty of sun lounging furniture for the lazier adults. The badminton net was a nice addition as well as a couple of board games for the children when they needed to cool off. The large table became a special favorite for eating and chatting during our evening meals
The area surrounding the Villa is stunning. From the walking distance of the local Church and park of St Anticio to the local towns of Sagama and Tinnura and the backdrop of the mountains the setting is beautiful. Bosa is a lovely town with several nice places to eat and drink and to sit around the main square (Sardinians like watching the world go by) The beaches of Bosa Marina and around Cape Manu (Both within a 35 minute drive) are stunning and good seas for children to swim in with warm waters and clear seas. Also for anyone who has not been before Sardinian people are very friendly and accommodating.
You will definitely need a car to stay and explore the island. We hired a car from Alghero airport and is just over an hour although the windy roads take a little getting used to after the straight roads of the UK!
We will definitely think about returning to this Villa over the next few years and would recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting this magical island. (The pictures do not give justice to the Villa and surrounding area)
We had a thoroughly relaxing 7 day holiday in the 2 villas. Both ourselves and our grown up children and friends had an amazing stay and look forward to doing it again. The Agriturismo restaurant 1/2 mile down the track is a must but beware it is not necessary to eat for at least 2 days beforehand and only red wine is served. Although the villas are in a quiet location this suited us all. The river and large picnic area plus the local church are only 200 metres down the road. Bosa is a lovely old town with a beach about 1 km away with an abundance of good restaurants. Further afield is Alghero which we all fell in love with. Close to the sea again with an abundance of good restaurants and plenty to see in its array of narrow streets. Try the little train or horse drawn carriage, specially if you have young children.
We did enjoy very much our stay in that villa. we did spend almost all of our time outside for breakfast and dinner , enjoying the pool .
this is not that far form the sea ( every day we found new beaches) and we also visit nice villages around.
The villa is very well equiped! we were 2 french families and founded all of what is needed .
very nice place to come recommand
Our second time going to Il Frutteto and everything was still wonderful. Nice and clean accomodation and this time all basic stuff like salt, pepper, oil etc. was there.
Talked with the pool cleaner guy, who had a very professional approach to us as guests.
This time we found a pizza place in nearby Scano, who made the best pizza and the restaurant was local, so just to feel the atmosphere there was awesome. Nearby Sennariolo is also great little town for a walk to look at murals, for a drink pitstop on the way home from the beach and also they have a small market, where you can find breakfast when the baker in Scano has closed.
Can only recommend this property !
Very nice place to stay.
We once again we have experienced a very relaxing and sunny holiday at il fruttteto. A few changes to the villa including a micro wave,DVD player, I Pod station and more new sun beds, these have been well received. The Agrituriso restaurant next door which was not open on our last stay was very welcoming, friendly and the food was excellent.
We have been to our favourite beaches and have discovered another amazing beach about 30 mins south on the coast St Katrina, well worth a visit.
The pool has been lovely, our friends had teenage boys and were in the pool every day, as well as cooling down ourselves when needed.
The owners are very pleasant and the local agents are always at hand if any problems occur.
We would highly recommend this villa to family and friends.
