A fantastic holiday!
We would highly recommend a stay Cenzo and Josefine’s house. We had an amazing break; in part due to the privacy of accommodation, roomy terrace and inviting pool but also due to the generosity and hospitality extended by Cenzo and Josefine as hosts which made our stay truly memorable.
The mansard is well equipped, spacious and has a fantastic covered balcony with a view of rural Sardinia that stretches for miles. The pool was huge, about 12m x 6m with a little diving board that kept us all amused for the duration of our stay (not bad for a family with two teenagers!). It was great to be out in the sun on a day trip and then return and be refreshed by a swim in the pool. We practically had it to ourselves too, only sharing with Cenzo and his family on occasion.
Nulvi is a pretty Sardinian village with a pizzeria, supermarket, petrol station and some very nice restaurants (Sardinia style where there is a set menu and they just keep bringing out food for three hours!). The roads are generally quiet and there’s lots to do around the area, we visited the old walled town of Alghero, the beautiful beach at Stintino (good for snorkelling), the castle at Castelsardo and got the ferry to Bonafacio in Corsica for a day trip.
Throughout our stay Cenzo and Josefine were fantastic hosts; helpful but respecting our privacy. They drove out to meet us when we arrived late and slightly lost, welcomed us in, took us on a tour of the Nulvi to locate shops and restaurants the following day and offered a more cultural tour of village history before we left (including the house where Cenzo was born!). What a review can't capture is their open sharing of life stories and good humour which added both depth and colour to an excellent stay.
We had an amazing trip and returned home warmed both by the Sardinian sunshine and the warmth of our welcome in Nulvi. We hope to return soon.
Beautiful, quaint villa in a quiet village.
We had a fantastic time at this villa. The area and scenery was beautiful. The villa was clean and well equipped and although the ceilings in parts were low, they were manageable. The pool was amazing to come back to each day. The villa owners, Josephine and Cenzo were so friendly and hospitable, they really made our stay very special.
Great place to stay, amazing pool, lovely hosts, beautiful views, quaint Sardinian village.
Cenzo and Josephine made our stay just brilliant. He picked us up from nearby even though we arrived very late. During our stay, he also drove us up to the supermarket to orientate us on arrival, and when out son was sick, came to the doctor with us. They got the balance just right in terms of being there to help when we needed, but we're definitely not overbearing. Spot on.
Nulvi is a lovely village. Non-touristy, 25 min drive to the beach on north of island, which is lovely. There's s nice little pizza place to get takeaway from, a few bars and restaurants and a decent supermarket.
The place is above Cenzo and Josephine's house and is a mansard conversion. It has everything you need inside tho would benefit from slightly higher ceilings. In any event, the pool is so lovely, as is the beautiful private balcony, that we didn't spend much time inside. The flat has private access and the house has gates and is very safe in a quiet street (we have two young kids).
The pool is huge and two metre deep with a little diving board. It was basically ours to use privately for our stay. Cenzo and Josephine didn't use it at all while we were there. Only their granddaughter used it on a few afternoons for a couple of hours.
The views of the countryside are stunning and the pool is great. Would definitely recommend you stay here.
Thank you Cenzo and Josephine!
Fantastic place in North West Sardinia
This is really a beautiful place. We were there for a week, a family with 2 kids, 14 and 17 years. The view from the balcony is great. ´The apartment it self is big, although rather low ceiling, but it works as we were not very much inside. The big balcony or the pool were more attractive. The pool is perfect and we were more or less the only users of it, apart from the owners grand children who used it a few times.
Talking about the owners they are also fantastic. Vincenzo drove me around in the neighbourhood when we arrived to show where the few shops and restaurants were. We visited a restaurant in an agriturismo, and that was recommendable. Ask Vincenzo for advices.
Vincenzo and his wife were very helpful and friendly. They also brought us home made cheese from their own sheep:-).
So, all in all a recommendable place to stay for a weeks Holiday. And only 20 minutes to a good Beach.
Thank you for your hospitality Vincenzo. Ciao.
Great Villa in a superb location
This was our first holiday in Sardinia and we were certainly not disappointed. The apartment was comfortable, very well equipped and the outside covered terrace space was a real bonus. You can spend hours sitting out there admiring the views and listening to the distant sound of the sheep bells which made for a very relaxing holiday.
The photos are an accurate representation of the house, but the views are even more spectacular as you really can see for miles. The owners are amazing; they gave us a very warm welcome and made every effort to make us feel at home during our 2 week stay. They ensured we had essentials provided on arrival and were generous enough to offer us a selection of their home grown fruit and vegetables throughout our stay. Their generosity very much appreciated and made the whole experience extra special. The pool was lovely, very well maintained and there are plenty of chairs and sun loungers to choose from.
Nulvi is an old traditional and very pretty town that offers a range of café bars, shops, a supermarket, beautiful churches and a weekly market. We found the local people to be really helpful and friendly, and even though we cannot speak Italian, this didn’t cause us too many problems.
There is so much to see and do in this part of the island and the location of the apartment is great. It is an excellent base to explore inland and yet a short drive to the coast and you can experience lots of beautiful and different beaches. We would definitely recommend this property and now we have had a taste of Sardinia we hope to return in the future.
The photos and property details give you a good idea of what to expect but really don't tell the whole story:
The villa is in a quiet town about 20 minutes from a great beach at Lu Bagnu which gives you the best of both worlds: Total peace and tranquility at a good price but easy access to great beaches. About 1'15" to Stintino and an hour to Costa Paradiso which are simply stunning.
The property itself is traditionally furnished. We were worried that it might be unbearably hot inside being right under the roof, but it is actually rather cool due to the thick walls and effective shutters. There is also air conditioning if required. Everything you need is inside from cooking facilities to some satellite TV if you want it and a wireless internet connection.
And now the best bits....
The view from the canopy-covered terrace is fantastic. We ate all our meals there and listened to the bells of the owner's sheep in the field opposite. We will really miss that panorama. The pool is lovely, and we had pretty much exclusive use for our 2 week stay. The owner's grandchildren came over one afternoon and our daughter enjoyed splashing around in the pool with them, but other than that we had it to ourselves.
And finally, the owners: We have never met kinder, more generous people in our lives. The owner speaks French as well as Italian and he and his wife are lovely. If we needed to know anything they were always able to help. We were lucky enough to be offered some of their home grown produce and these touches made it extra special.
If you want to stay somewhere peaceful and see the REAL Sardinia whilst being close to the sea, this is the property for you. We hope to return one day.
