About Leigh Hibbs

I was born and grew up in England. I live in the cotswolds with my family. The area is full of wonderful places to visit, charming little villiages as well as trendy up market towns.

The family were inspired with Sardinina when we were on holiday in 2004 and we decided to search for the ideal villa.

We fell in love with the west coast and the beaches. The boys

when they were younger would spend hours on the beach and in the evening enjoy the pool and surrounding open areas by the villa.

Family life very special,having fun and spending time together.

I hope families and friends will enjoy our holiday home is in Sardinia as much as we do.

Leigh Hibbs purchased this villa in 2005

Why Leigh Hibbs chose Bosa

After viewing several properties we came across Il Frutetto, in total need of renovation but a good location, not too far 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.

We have updated it with tiles and modern finishes and built a

wooden pagola so the vines and roses still grow 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.

What makes this villa unique

Large private grounds with swimming pool

4 bedrooms

2 bathrooms

sleeps 9 persons big enough for 2 families/large groups

ideal for 4 couples

ideal for family with 2 small children the main house can be used.

Agents who speak english and italian and help with any problems quickly.

Agritorismo restuarant 5 mins walk.

Small park 2 mins walk

Tennis courts 2 mins walk

sun beds

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were pleased to find the villa very well equiped, the interiors beautiful and contempory.

The people in the Agritorism (just next door) welcomed us with a glass of wine, the food

was traditional italian cooking. If you want to eat there you need to book in advance

it was great not to have to cook.

The villa was an excellent location for exploring the west coast and visiting some of the local villages, where all the locals like to stop and chat.(italian only)

Although we are not BBQ people, we did enjoy eating outside on the big outdoor table,

very romantic if you are on your own.

We would recommend the villa and wouold be an excellent place for a large family/group to stay.

lovely Villa in beautiful Sardinia

  • 5 of 5
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)

Owner's Response: I feel that It is very important to make a holiday villa into a home for guests staying to use and enjoy, nothing gives me greater pleasure than knowing guests have had a fantastic holiday.
I will continue to add more to the villas ie toys,books for children and garden games for everyone, so keep the positive comments coming, it can only get better!
Gav ,Entorage and friends obvoiusly had a great time and I must admit the large table under to vines( seats 10- 12 people very comfortably) is a special place for sharing moments of fun with friends and family as well as romance under the stars.
Sardinia is a beautiful island, as well as the people,they are a very relaxed and happy population, but a car is an essential if you want to see and enjoy the island.
Lastly I would just like to say big thank you to Gav 's family and friends for a great review and look forward to your next booking

Another wonderful stay in Il Frutteto

  • 4 of 5
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 !

Owner's Response: Hello and once again thank you for a good review.
We informed our agents after your review last year and they ensure that any
basics are left in the villa. We are very pleased with our 'work force', gardener, pool man, cleaners and our agent they are very professional and caring, keeping Il Frutteto to a good standard.
The pizza place in scano is excellent for eating out or you can pick up a takeaway. it also has a great super market thats sells most things as well as excellent meat and bread, its ideal to have amenities local. The agritorismo next door has had some good reviews from some of our clients - this is just a 5 minute walk, this just adds to making your holiday more enjoyable and relaxing.
If you are looking for true italian life here it is, unspoilt beaches, villages
and scenery.
We hope that you will stay again.

Kind regards

A great place to be!

  • 5 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review.
Each year we add and improve the villa, the DVD player has been enjoyed by all the family.
The Agriturismo restuarant is a bonus, just a short walk away for good italian food, strolling back under the stars.
The owners do require you to book a day ahead.
The pool is everyones favourite and we now have 6 sun loungers to bask in the sun. We hope to put a bigger pool in for next season
one that is set in the ground with a large patio area.
Its nice to know our contact with clients helps, we want everyone to enjoy our family home - we hope to see you again

We are recently back from a late summer week at Il Frutetto, which we thoroughly enjoyed. As there were just the two of us, we only used the building with the kitchen and lounge, though we had access to the other building if necessary.

Il Frutetto is in a peaceful, rural situation - on one occasion we had an enquiry from a farmer about a lost cow, and be prepared for animal noises plus visits from local cats. However it is within a short (15-30 minutes drive) of some pleasant beaches, villages and towns. The property is comfortable, well maintained and equipped, and attractively decorated, with a decent-sized garden.

We prefer to prepare our own meals in the evenings rather than eat out, and consequently we rely on a well-appointed kitchen. Il Frutetto certainly has that - it even possesses a good old British toaster, though we would have appreciated a small microwave as well.

Places we preferred were Santa Lussurghiu (our favourite - an ancient hill town), Bosa, Cuglieri, San Leonardo and Tinnura (for its impressive modern murals). For an insight into the one-time way of Sardinian life the museum in Suni is worth a visit. Alghero is a lovely old coastal town, and the scenic drive there from Bosa is a bonus. We particularly enjoyed the beaches at Bosa Marina, S’Archittu, Is Arenas and Is Arutas.

We very much liked both Il Frutteto and the surrounding area, and would be happy to return.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review.

Yes Il Frutetto is peaceful and very tranquil,you can often hear sheep with 'their bells ' in the surrounding fields - but you are only a short drive away from the hustle and bustle of italian life.

It is wonderfull to cook/BBQ in the evenings, we have a good range of equipement in the kitchen along with the luxury of the dishwasher.There will be a microwave for 2013 - during our last visit we realised how usefull it would be.

S'Architta (famous arched rocks) is also one of our favourite beaches and is less than 30 mins drive away. It has wonderful costal walks, small individual resturants and bars over looking the sea.In the summer has spectacular music festivals and is well worth a visit.

We hope to see you in 2013.

kindest regards

The area is rated 5 stars in the italian -blue guide of beaches.The closest beach porto Alabe is a 10- 15 minute drive

this is also a very safe large sandy beach. It is well worth exploring the numerous coves and stunning beaches on the West coast
