Family Fun In Costa Paradiso
We were a family of seven, six adults and one baby, looking to spend a holiday on Sardinia that would accommodate all of us. It was a necessity that we be within easy access of beaches, shopping and restaurants as well as points of interest to visit. Villa Sirena provided this and more!
The description of the villa was very accurate. We found it clean and inviting and immediately settled in. My daughter, her husband and 11 month old son moving into the mid-sized bedroom which had a crib. My son and his wife moved into the smaller bedroom on the same floor and my husband and I, (lucky us!) moved into the master suite upstairs. We all enjoyed the gorgeous view from the living/dining room which looked out on the lovely patio, below that the pristine pool and beyond down the mountain to the sparkling Mediterrean!
We drove to the market down the street for our first purchase of supplies for breakfast and snacks to keep at the house. After that we almost always walked, particularly to the cafe/bar for a morning cafe latte and chocolate pane! We fell in love with the little community at Costa Paradiso and would recommend staying at this property for anyone looking to escape to a beautiful, quiet and serene beach community that is definitely out of the ordinary.
The owners were very quick to answer any of our questions and we felt they truly cared that we enjoy our stay.
There was no telephone or computer access at the villa but we found we adapted very quicky and didn't miss being cut off from home. My son had a Blackberry for emergency contact which we fortunately didn't need. We didn't even watch TV as we were exhausted by the time we got back every day from the beach, exploring local towns and dinner. Something we found different and quite good on the island was the local use of Mirta/ Myrtle in cooking, sauces and digestivos!
We visited Isola Rossa, Castelsardo and Santa Teresa Di Gallura and enjoyed wandering in each of these towns. My son and his wife left early one morning to travel to Alghero and take the boat ride to the Grotta di Nettuno which they thoroughly enjoyed. We liked walking/hiking the trail to the protected cove and beautiful sandy beach of Costa Paradiso and took out a pontoon boat one day to see the rocky and gorgeous shoreline from the water.
Everything in the description of this villa was accurate and we all really enjoyed our holiday and hope to return soon!
