About Malcolm Buteux

Hello and thank you for showing an interest.

We are an English / French couple. We have lived in Perfugas for most summers for the last 8 years. We have enjoyed hunting the hidden gems of this region and share our discoveries with family and friends. Running a holiday villa is a natural progression from that.

Please feel free to contact us for any further information you would like to have about the property or the area.

Kind Regards,

Malcolm and Valerie

Malcolm Buteux purchased this villa in 2011

Why Malcolm Buteux chose Sassari

We first fell in love with the Anglona and Gallura regions when we were house hunting 10 years ago. This stunning countryside, surrounded by red tinted mountains is what attracted us first. The proximity to the beach and the warmth of the local people won us over.

What makes this villa unique

What makes this villa truly unique is that it is set in a natural, rural environment that is so tranquil that it is rare to even hear a car. And yet you are only 25 kms from the seaside.

You also have your very own bronze age monument on-site in the form of a 3500 years old Nuraghe ruin (Tower built by the Nuragic civilisation. They are also the people who built the sacred well you can see in the centre of Perfugas).

Our pool is rather unique in having a salt electrolysis system that leaves your skin, hair soft and your eyes clear.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The villa and area has so much to offer - for me the silence and black sky at night were a shear joy, but, just being able to melt into the landscape was equally great.

I think the danger is that there are so many things to see and do

that you can easily get drawn into sitting in a car and spending all

day chasing the horizon.

However, for me it was a great place to chill out, read, write and

draw and enjoy the quiet with loads of wildlife for company. We would rate 10 out of 10 for both facilities, welcome, your help and attention.

Excellent property exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

We thought that the most important thing that made this a great holiday was the consideration and attention that owner Malcolm gave to one of our party who has mobility problems. He spent considerable time before we booked explaining how to overcome any mobility aspects of the property ( which in fact were very few) This personal contact was so much better than dealing with a paid representative of a company and if future potential customers have any reservations on any count I can give assurance that Malcolm will spend whatever time is needed to resolve any issues. The villa itself was excellent as were the facilities and condition of all equipment where we lacked for nothing. The outdoor facilities were great with a range of different seating areas which would allow larger groups to spread out rather than being crowded together. The pool was fine for a cool off and was maintained in a very clean condition and there was a very ample supply of loungers . beds and towels for those wishing to visit the numerous delightful and quiet beaches and there were many useful booklets to guide trips away on very well surfaced and traffic free roads. The only concern about car travel in this area is that the roads in old parts of towns are very difficult for other than small cars and many have restrictions on entry enforced by cameras and computers which send fixed price penalty notices to offenders - beware the TVA signs ( Traffico a Veicolo Limitato). If you are looking for a very relaxed holiday in tranquil settings this is the place. Others have mentioned the sound of the sheep bells as they are lead morning and evening from pastures for milking ( so we asume as they are certainly not bred for meat) This is quite a sonorous treat and certainly not a nuisance

Absolutely delightful

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a holiday in Sardinia in a quiet and rural setting with only passing lizards and birds and butterflies as outside companions then look no further than this Villa. We also had a visit from a local tortoise.

It is very well equipped with plenty of spare plates, knives, forks etc and all in very good order and condition. The rooms are a good size with plenty of storage space although you hardly need to take any clothes. There are 2 good shower areas with very hot water from the solar system.

Outside, there are a number of places to sit and lounge around. Long chairs by the pool; chairs under the old cork trees for the evening sun ; a lounger at the top of the garden and a hammock at the front. There is also a veranda at the front with a large wooden table and chairs: just take your pick.

If you fancy a trip to the nearest beaches ( about 30 minutes away), there are sunshade umbrellas and a mass of children's buckets and spades. Badminton is available for the keen people.

The area is steeped in historical remains many within easy reach. None more so than the 3,500 year old stone tower in the garden.

We had a delightful holiday made even more pleasant by the owner, Malcolm, who was helpful and friendly without ever being intrusive. He is a mine of local information for anything not covered by the extensive folders of local maps, brochures and guides which are in the villa.

This is a villa that fully lived up to our hopes and expectations.

Go there and enjoy it.

A special place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Villa Nuraghe is just a fabulous place to be able to stay! It really is a peaceful oasis on the wonderful island of Sardinia. The villa is extremely well equipped and highly maintained villa in spectacular countryside, with enough surrounding land for us to be able to relax with our at times quite boisterous 5 and 3 year old boys! The swimming pool was a real hit and we loved being able to explore the garden and make use of the provided games too.

The nearby villages of Perfugas and Erula have good fresh, local produce on offer (wine/cheese/bread and of course Ice Cream!), and there are numerous other places to explore nearby including thermal pools and swimming ponds. There are any number of beaches within reach to suit whatever you might fancy on any particular day, and the Sardinian food doesn't disappoint.

Malcolm the owner went out of his way to make us feel welcome and to give us all the information we needed to make the most out of our stay.

Overall, this really is a special place to stay, summarised by our 5 year old who asked when we were leaving, 'when are we coming back?' . Hopefully soon....

A peaceful paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Sardinia and it did not disappoint, it's been one of the best holidays we've had. Where do we start? Well let's start with the local area around the villa. Remote and peaceful with no immediate neighbouring villas, but only a couple of minutes away from the village of Erula where there is a shop for supplies. We visited a few of the local beaches close by and always managed to be distracted on the way by either a church, castle, terme, gorge or Nuraghe. The whole area is littered with history and geology, Malcolm suggested two museums for us to visit which explained much about the islands rich story.

The villa itself was perfect, just what we were hoping for. Bright, well equipped with everything you need. Comfy double bed with crisp cotton sheets and brilliant ensuit shower. Outside of the villa the garden was an oasis for relaxing, with many different areas carefully planned out to take advantage of the wonderful views all around. The pool was heavenly refreshing to cool down in, with its crystal clear soft water. Whilst relaxing anywhere around the villa you will hear the soft but busy chattering of birds, the distant calls of a cuckoo or two and the gentle tinkering of bells which adorn the local cattle.

The local roads were heavenly for early morning cycling before the temperatures crept up, the road surfaces were much better than anticipated and it was a perfect area for both climbing and descending.

If we had to name one thing that would of made our holiday even better, it would be that we had two weeks there instead of one.

Thank you Malcolm for being the perfect host, we had a fantastic time and look forward to returning next year.

Beautiful villa in rustic location

  • 5 of 5

The villa has all modern conveniences and is situated in a quiet rustic location with tinkling sheep bells the loudest sound Small pool which was a little too cold for us but a number of areas around the villa for sunbathing and relaxing. Per fugal is the nearest small town and offers good local wine and cheese. About 30 kilometres from the sea but the roads are narrow and winding so takes longer than you might think to travel there. All in all a relaxing and enjoyable with with welcoming hosts

Owner's Response: Dear P & J, Thank you so much for your lovely review. I take this opportunity to expand on some of what you said. Our pool is 5.30 by 3.70m and benefits from a depth of 1.30m October is generally a cooler month, more like an English sumer. Therefore, the pool is not always warm. This is a better month to choose if you like to be an active tourist,cycling, walking, visiting places etc. June to September are better months to choose to languish by the pool or going to the beach. The roads are winding everywhere on the island but nearly all of them are 2 lane roads and part of its charm. I know you enjoyed the peace and natural beauty villa nuraghe offers. We have done further improvement to the land and the other building. We will tell you when the other rustic house will be ready for rental, should you wish to come back with family or friends. All the best Malcolm

An Excellent Week

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Nuraghe in late August 2015. What a delight! Val and Malc boast that you can arrive with hand luggage only, and the attention to detail is such that this is probably true. The property is clearly a labour of love and a source of pride, and stands in contrast to other rental properties we have seen which are often run to minimise costs.

All angles are covered, from cold drinks and wine on arrival and a huge library of local information, to towels you can take to the beach, and even body board, umbrellas and flippers. We juiced fresh oranges for breakfast (the kitchen is exceptionally well equipped), and cooled off in hot afternoons in the spotless pool.

We frequently choose to rent cottages which are back from the coast a little, aiming for a more authentic rural experience with striking distance to the beach when we need it. Once again this strategy worked for us; if you value privacy then this place is for you, set behind a gated and long driveway on a large plot with interesting nooks and crannies, pleasant views, and its very own prehistoric structure on site. Nearby Perfugas is small and sleepy but has a fine supermarket for supplies.

Val and Malc made us feel truly welcome here. We would strongly recommend this property to anybody interested in exploring this northern corner of Sardinia.
