Village house with a delightful view

Arrived in a Sardinia to 39 degrees. It was hot and stayed like that for 5 days.The wind changed direction and it dropped to 35 degrees. The property being not far from the coast there was always a pleasant breeze. The owner has fitted the bedrooms with overhead fans and A/C for use during the night so sleeping was never a problem. The property was very clean and on the whole well maintained although we did have a problem with one of the showers being slow to drain away. The description of the property was accurate with the layout etc. We were 4 adults staying at the property, the open stairs might have been an issue if it had been two adults with small children. The owner was contactable prior to arrival etc and provided a wealth of information by e-mail about the house and surrounding area, as well as there being a copy at the house as well. The property is set in a little viilage, very rural and rustic, and great for a quiet life, that said the local Sardinians were always approachable and very friendly and will to help. There were a number of local festivals taking place which were enjoyable to view and watch some of the horse manship. There was a local supermarket for basics, however we did the main shopping at supermarkets in the nearby town of Bosa,one of which was very good. The local restaurants on the whole are very good, didn't eat meat the whole fortnight we were there, there was always a good selection of local fresh fish etc. There are 2 restaurants in the village, a mainly fish one and a pizzeria called Gino's, which were the best pizza's I have tasted. The rest of the restaurants someone has to drive to, or eat in. The property is ideally suited for the local beaches of which there are several the one we used the most was about 6 km away called Porto Albre ??. Aleghero to the North was worth a visit, we hired a boat there for the day. The property was a useful place for heading North and South along this part of the coast line which is not very tourist developed until you get to the top of the Island. When you had to travel it was twisty roads which can be a problem for some, there was no volume of traffic, until we visited the developed part top of the Island. All in all it was a good place to visit , quiet, and a good place to recharge our batteries. We spent one evening laid out on the roof terrace loungers watching the shooting stars which take place mid August every year, it was quite a sight. Worth the rental. Car hire expensive !!
Owner's Response: Many thanks and glad you enjoyed the holiday.

Wonderful!

We were vom21.10 bryn to 30.1012 in the magnificent house of Bryn.
The house meets the descriptions do not really, because in real life it is a thousand times more beautiful!
The little village _ _ Magomadas from the picture book and all the people there are friendly and helpful!
We will definitely come back but not the end of october.
The first days it was really warm and we were able to visit the great beaches like Porto Alabe and a beautiful quartz sand beach in Oristano.
The last days were a bit inconsistent, but we could do it ourselves in the evening relax by the fireplace great =)
All in all a perfect holiday and giant thanks to Bryn that we could live in his lovingly renovated house!

Fabulous stay at Casa Ciki !

This was our first time to Sardinia and it is an absolutely beautiful island! Casa Ciki is a very comfortable house in a great location. It's very in keeping with Sardinia with large rooms and 2 balconies, 1 off the kitchen and a roof top terrace, very nice for drying beach towels and catching the last of the sun. The location is excellent as you're on the west coast near to one of our favourite places, Bosa Marina. We stayed for 9 days and went to 7 different beaches, and they all were so different from each other! We were able to rent a boat one day which was so much fun and well worth the money. Next time we'll take some fishing gear with us and catch our dinner! We had a day trip to Alghero and loved it, such a nice town especially the shopping. Just get there a couple hours before 1:00pm because everything shuts down from 1 to 4.30, except for restaurants and bars. So after lunch in Alghero we hit the beach! The restaurants, both locally and further away are very good, great value for money and not near as pricey as most people think. Can't say enough of the beauty of this place, it was one of my favourite holidays! And, can't wait until next May because we've already booked to stay at Casa Ciki!
Owner's Response: I am so pleased that you have such an enjoyable holiday! Thanks for the great review.

Wundervolles Haus

Ja!!! Ja!!! Ja!!! Wir möchten wieder dort Urlaub machen!!! Ein wirklich wundervolles Haus, sehr liebevoll eingerichtet von den Besitzern mitten im italienischen Leben... Bis zur nächsten Küste sind es ca.15Minuten mit dem Auto. Es gibt so viele verschiedene Strände und Buchten, da ist garantiert für jeden etwas dabei. Wir waren mit unserem 15jährigen Sohn unterwegs, der sich ebenso wie wir sehr wohl in dem Haus gefühlt hat. Die Besitzer gaben uns jede Menge Tips und Tricks und wir standen die ganze Zeit in (SMS)Kontakt. Vorab bekamen wir jede Menge Informationen zum Haus, zum Einkaufen, sogar zur Klimaanlage ;-)) Danke Bryn!
Wir können dieses Haus vorbehaltlos empfehlen und würden jederzeit wieder dort unseren Urlaub verbringen.

Perfect - we loved the place and the Island

We have travelled far and wide but I have to say I cannot think of a better place both the house and the island.

The house is stuated in a traditional village 10minutes inland from a lovely coastal town. The quality of the house is just great, sitting on the roof terrace ovelooking the mountain valleys has to be experienced to be belived.

If you stay here you will be buying a week or two of real integration into Sardinian life away from it all.

We went in April and both the village and the island were so peaceful.

In the 7 days we were there the weather was forecast mixed when we left the UK but turned out to be very pleasant one bad day but all others between 18 and 26 - think good summer period in England.

As for the Island we have several pictures of just us on idylic beaches, where else in the world can you get that. Alghero is really worth a look. We did get out and about and saw a lot of the west of the Island.

The overriding thoughts that I have are quiet and unspoilt - Sardinia is a real secret and long may it remain that way.

Casa Ciki is 5 star accomodation at an affodable price.

We will be back.
Owner's Response: Very many thanks, Mark and Karen. We've always felt that the location is a hidden gem and long may that continue. However, nothing gives us greater pleasure than to see families having a lovely relaxing holiday. We try to respond to what guest say about the house and each year we try to improve it based on the comments we receive. Most of what you have said Mark and Karen we couldn't have written it better ourselves.

This is the perfect relaxing holiday in a working Sardinian village. There is a little sign of the tourist other than during the height of the season in late July and August. With delightful beaches only a 10 minute drive away it is a sun seekers paradise. There are delightful walks, charming little villages and the nearby town of Bosa for some shops, restaurants and cultural delights.

The nearest beach is a 10 minute drive away at Porto Alabe, which is fairly quiet outside mid July to the end of August when traditionally mainland Italy flocks to Sardinia. Porto Alabe is quite self contained and has two bars and a mini market open all year. Bosa beach

The largest beach is in Bosa Marina which is a comfortable 15 minutes drive away from Magomadas. This is our favourite as it has some good facilities nearby, such as the beachside cafes, equipment to hire for the very large beach and watersports. It also has a good number of shops, bars and restaurants in the streets away from the beach. From the 2 marinas it is possible to hire boats, take fishing and diving trips and make the journey up river to get a different view of Bosa, from the water, to the Romanesque Church of St Peter. There is also a small train station from which a tourist train runs trips into the countryside and back in the high season.

Welcome to our Private Rental Villa in Sardinia. The beautiful island of Sardinia is located in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea. The villa is located in a little village with a quaint little friendly local bar, a very small supermarket, pharmacy, vinery and an excellent local restaurant. Our Villa in Sardinia is available for rent all year round.

Bosa Marina, like Porto Alabe, is only particularly busy in the high season. In May, June and September when temperatures will still be in the high 20s at least, one can normally park within a hundred yards or so of the sea at any time of the day. July and August are busier but parking is usually achievable and free.

In addition to the restaurant in Magomadas there is a very good pizza take away/restaurant in nearby Tresnuraghes (a 10 min walk). Bosa and Bosa Marina have a number of good eating places, and you pass a number of good roadside restaurants on the drive from Magomadas to Bosa. The village of Modolo, that you will be able to see from the terrace, also has an excellent restaurant by the unmissable church spire.

Casa Ciki, in the traditional village of Magomadas, is situated in the North West of Sardinia, about 20 miles/40 km South of Alghero, the nearest airport. It is close to the coastal town of Bosa.

The drive from Alghero to Bosa and Magomadas and Casa Ciki is worth the trip alone. The only way of describing it, is like having Snowdonia on the left hand side and the beautiful blue Mediterranean on the right. It is 45 minutes of breathtaking scenery.

The village of Tresnuraghes is a two minute drive from Magomadas, and is a similarly traditional Sardinian village where time also seems to have stood still! Strangers are looked on with curiosity by the very friendly locals who will always respond to a 'Buongiorno' or ‘Buonasera’. There is everything you need here, minimarkets, butchers, bakers and bars but not with the selection of the supermarkets in Bosa or Macomer.

In a different direction is the delightful village of Flussio. This small village is famous for its basket weaving and on warm summer nights you will see many of the inhabitants sat outside working at their craft. Baskets are hung outside by the doorways and it is possible to buy them directly from here. In May you can see the raw material, the stems of the local Asphedol plant, laid out on the pavements to dry.

Almost adjoining the village on the same road is Tinnura. This village is well worth a visit. It has some wonderful murals, sometimes taking up the whole walls of houses – these are incredible. There are a couple of small piazza's that are decorated with colourful tiles, murals and delightful fountains.

Bosa

The nearest town of any size to Magomadas is the historical city of Bosa. Set on the banks of the River Temo, the only navigable river in Sardinia, its origins go back to Phoenician times. The old historical centre of Bosa spreads up the side of the hill away from the river and is overlooked by the magnificent Malaspina Castle.

The houses here are multi coloured and are built in a traditional tall, thin design. The walk up through the cobbled street leading up to the castle is well worth the effort and the views take in the town, and Bosa Marina with its beach and the sea. The promenade beside the river is palm tree lined and from here you can look at the many fishing and pleasure boats moored on the river banks. Bosa has many pavement bars and cafes, as well as shops, museums, churches and a cathedral.

The village of Tresnuraghes is a two minute drive and is a typical Sardinian village where time also seems to stand still

Notes:
There is a bit of a step over the front door so it is not ideal for wheelchairs. The stairs are also fairly narrow so wheelchair access to the terrace is virtually impossible. There is an open staircase to the first floor so families with very young children should be aware of this. They would also need to be very well supervised on the balcony from the main bedroom and the third floor terrace which is quite high - hence the stunning views. There is no off street parking but more often than not you can park outside the house, or within a few metres of it anyway, even in the height of the season.
