Overview

About the property

5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps up to 10. Divine natural stone pool.

A magical architecturally styled villa with typically Sardinian external stone wall features combined with an artistically decorated interior that has utilised the local craftsmanship in natural stonework and rendering. The villa is situated on two levels with large open living areas on both levels. Upstairs has a large modern timber, marble and stainless steel open plan kitchen, facing the dining and living area. The interior design upstairs is a combination of high ceilings with timber beams and arch work. On the top level is the main bedroom with a large on-suite resin bathroom, two other bedrooms and a large resin bathroom featuring a free standing stone bath. An open fireplace is in the main living area. The lower level has been built in a warm, traditional Italian taverna style with a large living and dining area, open fireplace and wine rack in natural stone and timber. In the lounge area, a discreetly installed large screen high definition surround sound home cinema has been installed. The lower level also boasts a large guest bedroom with en-suite bathroom, a second bedroom, a second bathroom connecting to a large stone and resin steam room, library and laundry. A centralised high definition Satellite TV distribution system is installed, capable of accessing satellite TV from any of the European or Russian satellite TV providers. Audio is distributed throughout the upper and lower levels of the villa, including the external terrace and pool area, via a centralised distribution system capable of playing FM Radio, CD, MP3, iPod or AirPlay wireless streaming. Internet is provided with Wi-Fi signal throughout the villa. The villa has been equipped with centralised heating and cooling system, underfloor heating and beautifully designed open fire places on both levels. The underfloor heating, fire places and solar panels make it appropriate for both summer and winter living. The property features an award winning natural stone pool, nestled in amongst the large natural granite rocks with a wonderfully large living and sunbathing area permitting it to be used for many months of the year. The water is treated with Magnesium and Potassium mineral sterilization which helps to reduce stress and keep your mind and body healthy. The property is fully fenced, the majority of which is with natural stone walls. Inside the grounds is a large olive grove and fruit orchard. The property is situated only ten minutes from Porto Cervo and the closest beaches of the Costa Smeralda in a very peaceful rural setting with complete privacy and tranquillity.

About Jacqui Holth

After having travelled the world for years working and experiencing some of the most stunning locations on the planet we arrived in Sardinia and fell in love with the land, the sea, the food and of course and with the people. There are very few places like it in the world. We have chosen to rent out our main residence due to current work and education commitments which see us currently living on the mainland.

Jacqui Holth purchased this villa in 2010

Why Jacqui Holth chose Costa Smerelda

Having lived on the Costa Smeralda for 12 years we are well aware of what is available on the market and decided to build our own home. We built this home for our personal use and so left nothing out. You have all modern features such as internet, satellite TV, music throughout, home cinema, steam room, air conditioning, all discretely integrated into the design features of the home. There is no other rural property that offers such luxury living and guarantees at the same time the privacy and tranquillity that comes with selecting a rural home for your vacation. The price also includes 6 days per week of a private staff member who will ensure that your vacation gives you all that you desire with her local knowledge as well as the added benefit of keeping the property in order for you during your stay.

What makes this villa unique

The peace, the natural beauty, the feeling of pure escapism and relaxation that our property offers takes your breath away every single day. The warmth of the stone pool, the cows wandering in the open fields, the sun on the granite rocks and the outstanding evening stars cannot be matched. You can choose to stay all day at home with the doors and windows wide open allowing the breeze to drift through the house over the warm timber floors, lazing by the magnesium treated natural stone pool protected from the wind, ending the day with a traditional Italian aperitivo on the terrace as the warm evening light casts colours over the granite peaks. Or you can take a 10 minute drive to the immense number of glorious white sand beaches and coves that the Costa Smeralda has to offer.

We celebrated a family occasion in Villa Jacqueline. I cannot imagine more beautiful house. It has the feeling of a lovingly decorated home, the pool and garden are stunning and the feeling of privacy is very special. our group ranged in age from 2 to 82 and everyone was delighted. Thank you so much

Un merveilleux séjour dans un très belle maison

  • 5 of 5

nous avons fait un merveilleux séjour dans la maison de jacqui. Elle correspond à 100% à la description, grande, spacieuse,très confortable avec un aménagement très chaleureux.La piscine est un véritable bijou,admirablement intégré dans environnement .On ne se lasse pas de la beauté de la nature que nous offre cette maison.

nous avons eu la joie de venir la 2éme et 3 éme semaine d'avril et avons profité d'un temps estivale.Visiter la Sardaigne hors saison et vraiment fabuleux,sans touriste sur plages et sites .

Speranza a été très disponible et à l écoute pour faciliter notre séjour.

A notre demande les repas préparés par Rita ,très généreuse et chaleureuse,ont régale nos papilles et fait découvrir de délicieux plats sard.

un magnifique séjour en famille réussi à 100% pour nos 40 ans de mariage

paradise in the hills

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at villa jaqueline was fabulous .It is an architectural delight , elegant and well appointed.The setting is central enough to do wonderful day trips and then return to the calm of the Villa. We walked to the top of the mountain behind the Villa ,and the views were spectacular .There is a fantastic property manager who makes you feel at home the moment you arrive..

Possible the only thing i would say is missing, is a clothes dryer.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay ,and would recommend it highly .

Villa Jacqueline, September 2016

  • 5 of 5

Having just returned from 2 weeks in Villa Jacqueline I would like to thank Jacqui and also Speranza, (Villa Manager) for making our holiday such a success.

As any villa renter will know as you drive the last mile to your holiday location you keep your fingers crossed that the Villa will live up to expectations.

Not only did Villa Jacqueline live up to expectation, it exceeded them. Speranza was there to greet us and provided us with a guided tour of this beautiful Villa.

As we entered the Villa our eyes fell upon a welcome pack that ensured that there was no immediate need to go shopping. Sitting on the kitchen surface was a bowl filled with a wonderful array of fruit and bursting with vibrant colours.

The way Villa Jacqueline have been presented is like using a close friend home for your holidays. All the basics and more are at hand and the kitchen is full of all the utensils any budding Master Chef would require. There was no need to buy any of the basics as these were made available, this is just the way to make any holiday relaxing!

We dislike drinking “Fizz”, in this case Prosecco, from a wine glass, so on many occasions have had to buy Champagne Flutes and leave them behind In Villa Jacqueline there are “Fizz Flutes” for what appeared to be 50+ people and still have glasses to spare!

All the elements to make the holiday a success are available and the pool, views and outside area were the icing on the cake.

Lastly I have to mention the use of light in the garden, it was fantastic and has now has put me under pressure to get in a light expert at home!

Thank you once again for helping to make our holiday very special.

Peace and tranquility in beautiful surroundings

  • 5 of 5

The Property is sited in the mountains, is both secluded and tranquil and beautifully appointed with comfort exuding from every room.

The outdoor pool was a great hit with us all and the magnesium cleaning agent was much appreciated, particularly by the medical members of the group.

Our party were aged from 3 to 70, all had a superb time thanks to the many amenities in the Villa.

The housekeeper was wonderful, not only coming in to tidy up during the week but also cooking 2 magnificent evening meals.

We couldn't think of anything that we needed - everything was provided to a very high standard indeed.

We loved it!

Highly recommend: nothing amiss, a real pleasure

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very enjoyable week at the villa with another family - a total of 4 adults and 3 children - and had a wonderful time. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed, the kitchen is very nice with good quantity, quality and selection of cooking and serving equipment, and the space outside is lovely, plenty of room for kids to play, and - importantly - the sun deck and pool are just as nice as they appear in the photos. I would add that we all slept well - the beds and mattresses are really comfortable. There's always a slight feeling of trepidation when arriving at a rented villa - will it be as nice as it appears in the photos? Villa Jacqueline does not disappoint - the place was spotless, everything is high-quality and well-maintained, and the owners and property manager Speranza are clearly experienced. We found Speranza to be very friendly and attentive, and knowledgeable about the area: we were made to feel very welcome indeed, from the moment we arrived. We have visited Sardegna before, and found the location to be a perfect spot to visit our favourite restaurants and beaches. And shops are conveniently located in the town of Abbiadori, just down the road, including a Dettorimarket as well as a nice bakery and wineshop just next door. We also enjoyed taking walks further up the road from the villa, which winds up the mountain, with beautiful views at the top. We plan to return!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. We built Villa Jacqueline as our own permanent home and so did not cut any corners. We also travel extensively and appreciate what it means to have all you need when on vacation, so have purposefully been very aware of making sure all your needs were met. Speranza has worked for us for over 12 years and is a wonderfully warm lady with an impressive attention to detail, always willing to help. We appreciate your compliments and look forward to welcoming you again next year.
