A beautiful and fantastically equipped villa!

  • 5 of 5
We were 3 adults travelling with 4 children aged 10, 8, 3 and 8 months. Our whole experience was overwhelmingly positive, from the communication and directions received prior to our arrival, through to our departure. The accommodation was clean and spacious with very effective air conditioning and a well equipped kitchen. Everything worked. The pool was clean (and was cleaned in the middle of our 10 night stay) and there were a good number of sun beds/chairs/inflatables for the kids, who all had a great time in the water. You do need a car as the location is secluded, which was part of its appeal, but the nearest beach and restaurant are less than 10 minutes away and are both excellent. Only slightly further afield is the wonderful sandy beach at Pelosa (I think that's the name!) The description of the villa is entirely accurate and there were simply no disappointing discoveries upon arrival, as I have experienced elsewhere in the past. The old town at Alghero is about 20-25 miles away and is definitely worth a visit - we took a short boat trip to Neptune's grotto from there. Otherwise I think you would have to travel quite a bit further afield to see more 'sights'. In the interests of balance, do note that there is no bath at the property (not actually a problem for us) and the high chair is one that clips onto a table. There are a lot of ants which necessitates vigilance with cleaning up after meals, but as long as you do so this is not a problem. Insects generally are not really a problem but bug spray is a good idea in the evenings. If you want a pool/beach holiday in a family friendly villa then you can't go wrong and we will definitely consider coming back here.

Amazing Property with a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
An excellent property, definitely well-maintained, with a pool for when the beach just won't do. The villa is near Stintino but a little bit further out, it is close to Ezzi Manu, a quieter beach which is actually less rocky than La Pelosa. Also, we liked La Saline too. La Pelosa is around 20 minutes from the villa.

The villa has Sky News, a fully equipped kitchen (with dishwasher even), and best for two couples traveling together, split master bedrooms. There is a laundry room with a ping-pong table too.

We found that we were able to have a steady supply of hot water, and the water pressure was strong too. The beds are comfortable, and the rooms are well equipped. There can be some issues with lighting in some of the rooms, but it was easy enough to work around that.

The closest grocery store we found was SISA in Stintino town, but it was a bit shabby. We also went to LIDL in Sassari, which was a bit nicer. There are many restaurants around, but many are closed during the day. There are some Snack Bar ones open for lunch.

We were close enough to do some sightseeing nearby too, we went to some agriturismo venues and the cave near Alghero as well as exploring Alghero proper. Each was about an hour away.

At the villa, there was a cute cat who seems to know how to get treats and still understands that they are not allowed into the living area. The pool area is outstanding, and is partially shaded starting in the afternoon. It's a bit chilly, but you can adjust very quickly. On one day when it was extremely windy, we found the pool to be a nice refuge for swimming and still enjoying a day by the water.

The villa does not have a safe, which would be one feature you may want to be aware of, but other than that it is very similar to a hotel room amenities. There is no wifi in the villa, but from our rental car company in Olbia we received a 4G wifi doggle, which worked very well, when it was placed in the dining room, but not so well when inside the villa.

All four of us really had a great time, we all think we will go back, and the process of booking and the return of the security deposit was seamless. It was a great overall experience for our first trip to Sardinia!
