Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the villa during one week in August 2014 and this was probably one of our best holiday rental experience. The villa is very well designed, with high quality equipements, spacious and nicely decorated rooms. The house is located in a calm countryside area but close to nice beaches and the view from the living-room is beautfiul. Our kids enjoyed the fruits and grapes available in the large garden and the sports equipments. The owners greeted us very warmly and provided us with useful indications on the area. We strongly recommend this villa and just look forward to coming back!

Lovely top-floor apartment

  • 5 of 5
This apartment has it all: the setting, the space, the view, the weather, the peace and quiet, the wonderful beaches, the stylish decor and it is very well-equipped. Mosquito nets on all windows and doors, aircon, dishwasher and washing machine, everything included in the price. What made a real difference was the supply of basic supplies: washing powder, cooking oil, spices, even sun umbrellas, walking shoes and bikes!! Advice is always available if needed. One of the best places we ever stayed in. Highly recommended.

Peaceful paradise

  • 5 of 5
Gumtrees is the perfect location - great base for walking & beautiful beaches and within easy reach of local villages and shops. We (2 couples) settled immediately into this property - with all the luxuries of home - great kitchen, BBQ, aircon, loads of space, terrace to die for with panoramic views of surrounding mountains and a glimpse of the sea - especially magical for evening G&T sundowners! Rita & Carlo (owners parents) welcomed us at our 1am (yep after midnight) arrival with local breads & milk & a wonderful bottle of Sardinian wine. We had a wonderful week & hope to return. We would strongly recommend this property.

Een droomvilla

  • 5 of 5
Dit huis is het mooiste vakantiehuis wat we ooit hebben gehad, echt een droomvilla. Alles was heel ruim, super schoon en alles wat je maar te wensen had was aanwezig. Zelfs een buitenkeuken, DVD's en Playstation waren voorhanden. De bedden waren super goed en ook de badkamers waren heel ruim. Het huis was lekker koel, vanwege de gunstige ligging hebben we de airco bijna niet nodig gehad.
Het uitzicht was fantastisch en heel rustgevend, vooral 's avonds met alle lichtjes in de bergen en de heldere sterrenhemel.
De omgeving is fantastisch, heel veel mooie stranden in de nabije omgeving met kristalhelder water. Ook de grot van Ulassai was heel mooi en de moeite waard om te bezoeken. Er zijn veel pizzeria's in de omgeving waar je lekker kunt eten.
We kunnen Rita en Carlo niet genoeg bedanken voor hun hulp en gastvrijheid maar in het bijzonder hun hulp tijdens het doktersbezoek zullen we nooit vergeten.
Het enige minpuntje wat we kunnen bedenken is dat als je een bewolkte dag hebt, de zonneboiler niet genoeg opwarmt en je kans hebt dat de laatste met lauw of koud water moet douchen. Ook 's morgens is het water dan nog niet warm. Gelukkig komen bewolkte dagen niet zoveel voor in Sardinië.
Kortom een super huis en zeker aan te bevelen!
We hebben een heerlijke vakantie gehad en hopen terug te komen!

Just like Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Perfect holiday in the most beautiful setting! The apartment (top floor) is very spacious and comfortable and equipped with everything you need and more. But all this is nothing compared to the stunning views! Absolutely fantastic! The house is built on a hill overlooking the valley and the surrounding hills/mountains. You can enjoy a 360° view on the large balcony which circles the living room as well as on the very large patio. If the beaches in the area weren’t so nice, you could stay here the whole day. The area is very calm and peaceful and apart from some birds singing and the occasional dog barking, you hear nothing at all. The silence was just overwhelming and impressive. In our modern, hectic lives we have forgotten what silence sounds like, here you can experience it every day!
Rita and Carlo, the parents of the owner, are very nice people who made us feel very welcome and took good care. They even had provided a small lunch on the day of our arrival, as well as fresh fruit, milk, wine and water, so we could relax and rest after our long journey and didn’t need to rush of to the stores. It was also very reassuring to know that somebody is around and can be reached in case of problems, which wasn’t necessary at all. In the flat we found plenty of information on the area, the beaches and places to visit including restaurants. Although we couldn’t visit the nearby pizzeria as it was already closed due to the low season which already starts end of September in Sardinia, we found some restaurants on the list that were open and we completely agreed with the recommendations on the list.
The only thing which was listed and we didn’t find in the apartment, was the DVD player. But with the beautiful starry nights we didn’t miss it all. SAT TV would be nice if you don’t understand Italian, but we don’t regard this as a minus.
Booking the apartment was easy and uncomplicated, all correspondence by email with very swift replies by the owner. Very accurate route description and no problem at all finding the property due to the fact that Rita and Carlo where waiting at an agreed meeting point. Great service!
We would definitely go back!

A very nice first stay at Gumtrees Villa

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week from 27th March to 3rd April in this beautiful villa
and can highly recommend this place to anyone looking for peaceful, individual holidays in amazing scenery.
Rita and Romano Lai who are the nice couple to look after you and who make sure that you do not lack anything could not have done better.Thank you again!!!
When we arrived there we were welcomed with local specialities such as pizza pies,red wine and a huge bowl of oranges and lemons.
We even got two really big beach towels each without asking them just in case we would be so crazy as to have a swim at this time of year.(We went swimming twice because the water was so tempting but still a bit too cold, to be quite honest.)
The villa itself offers everything you need for a comfortable stay. We were impressed by the big galleries and the possibility to enter them from every room of the house. In the morning we were woken up by the sound of sheep bells- really nice!!!
Sardinia is ,in fact, worth a visit. At the end of March we had fine spring weather, bushes were blooming and it smelled of herbs and flowers.We were astonished to find very bendy roads and high mountains and endless beaches.
We will definitely return next year !

The local beaches (10 mins drive) are well known for their crystal clear water and long sandy stretches. Slightly further afield there are a large number of possible beach destinations - including extremely secluded beaches accessible by foot and gently sloping beaches for those with young children.

Depending on the season there a number of activities possible. In summer the beach rules and there are boat trips up the coast. Authentic Italian ice cream is available in a number of places but Tortoli is our favourite.

There are some beautiful local spots such as Santa Maria Navarrese and a drive up through the local mountains reveals some stunning views and excellent walking opportunities. There are some lovely limestone caves in nearby Ulassai which are lovely and cool in the summer months and have guided tours.

The cantina in Jerzu is a must-visit for anyone who enjoys wine and if you come at the end of September you can witness the local grape harvest.
