Porto Rafael House Rental Photos and Description

My charming house is just a few steps above the famous Porto Rafael ‘piazzetta’ (little plaza). Porto Rafael was founded by the Spanish Count Rafael Neville in the 60s after having sailed in the crystal clear water of the Maddalena’s archipelago. He found the perfect place: a beautiful granite coastline full of self sown vegetation and many little beaches where the admiral Nelson dropped anchor in the 1800. My property has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a small living room as the main living area is the terrace where you find a large table and a singular nice kitchen. 30 steps far from the main house, I also have a studio, perfect for 2 person with kitchen and bathroom and a little terrace, where the guests can eat. The studio has an extra budget. Besides the ‘piazzetta’ and its beach, you can also walk to a couple of different beaches, perfect for families and children. Walking distance there is also a little lovely harbour where you can rent a rubber dinghy or organize tours to the archipelago’s beauties (Budelli Island and its ‘pink’ beach, Spargi Is., La Maddalena Is.

A perfect holiday

What a great location! Our family (us and 3 kids) had a wonderful time there: we enjoyed cooking, eating, reading, playing games on the beautiful terrace with this great view. The beach just a few steps down was perfect for us to swim, sunbath, snorkeling and even windsurf. And we had 14 days of blue sky!
Only one small advise for the owner: we have missed a few more glasses and larger cups in the kitchen.
However we will for sure come back.....
Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your wonderful words. First of all, I'm very happy you could find what you were looking for, after an entire year of job. I agree with you: Porto Rafael is a fantastic place. I've been going there since I was a kid and everythime It surprise me.
Thanks also for the info about what was lacking and I really hope to have you again in my house.

Porto Rafael was all we hoped for and more

Dear Paola,

Sorry for not replying earlier but it has been an intense week coming back from holiday. Porto Rafael was wonderful! It was all we hoped for and more. A big thank you also to Michela for helping out when our son got sick and we needed to see a doctor!

On the, very short list, of possible improvements: new pillows (the existing ones are hard and have lost their shape) and fixing the shower doors (difficult to open and close).

All the best to you and thank you for letting us rent your wondful place!

Hi Paola

Thanks for the message. I have been meaning to email you but have had a busy few weeks.

We LOVED Porto Rafael, had a fantastic holiday. The villa had everything that we needed, was very clean and comfortable and Mikeala was very helpful and friendly. We have already recommended your villa to some friends and we would love to come again in 2014, probably in September, if you have any availability. We really enoyed being able to sit out on the terrace and look at the beautiful view and relax.

wonderful days in Porto Rafael

  • Submitted: Aug 6, 2012

Me, my husband and our three sons (11,9 and 2) spent ten wonderful days in Porto Rafael earlier this summer. We have travelled a lot, both with and without the kids, but have actually never before been to such a beautiful place as Porto Rafael and its surroundings. During our stay, we discovered a number of perfect beaches, both by car nearby Porto Rafael and by boat in the archipelago of La Maddalena, where we went both by car ferry and by renting a small boat of our own. The latter was definitely one of the highlights of the stay: I've never before seen such crystal clear and turquoise water as we found here. However, the water was almost as perfect in and outside Porto Rafael as it was in the archipelago.

The apartment/house was perfect for our needs: A huge deck, partly with roof to provide the possibility to avoid the sun. The deck was spacious with a large sitting area which delivered a fantastic view of the Mediterranean and the surroundings of the village. In connection with the deck the kitchen was. The apartment/house also contained two nice and fresh bathrooms and two bedrooms (and an area between the bedrooms where one of our kids slept). Even if it was hot outside, it was easy to keep the heat away indoors, even with the AC turned off.

All mornings and most evenings we spent on the deck. A perfect place to cook, have dinner or just hang out. In the evenings we often just went down the stairs from the deck to the piazzetta and the beach of Porto Rafael to have a drink, an ice cream or just to take a swim, play beach tennis or beach football.

Porto Rafael was such a cute village: Two beautiful beaches, very clean, interesting architecture, flowers everywhere, small local grocery store and a couple of cafés/restaurants. And Palau nearby if we needed to go to a larger grocery story.

I can truly recommend a visit to Sardegna, Porto Rafael and this property! We had one of our best trips ever!

very nice time in Porto Rafael

  • Submitted: Aug 4, 2012

Ciao Paola,

we had a very nice time in Porto Rafael, the weather and water was excellent.
we like your house, due to pre season Porto Rafael was very silent.
unfortunately the fish restaurant was closed, but we made good fish by our own. The small shop in Porto Rafael was very convenient for fresh breakfast panini.
thank you for your flexibility in our arrival/ leaving, the travel with the ferry was a little bit complicated.

best regards,
Oliver

great time in Sardegna

Sorry Paola!
Everything was great!! We've been in our boat in the Stockholm archipelago since we came back and have had limited access to the Internet. We'll be home in a couple of days and then I will write a review.
However, we had a great time in Sardegna. I agree with you that it must be one of the most beautiful places in earth. We loved spending time on your deck and your apartment/house were great for our needs. Porto Rafael was a very cute village.
I'll write to you again when I'm home again.
Best regards,
Eva

We spent a worderful week , last October in this fantastic house. We could benefit of this wonderful terrace that gave us the impression of still being in a late summer.
We really enjoyed both the place, Porto Rafael and the house: whatelse? :-)
