The villa is an easy 20 minute drive from the Costa Smeralda airport and Olbia ferry port. The Villa sits above the treetops and has 360 degree commanding views over mountains, forests, vineyards and rolling pastures. It is situated within its own private grounds with no other properties in view. There is a 10m X 5m X 1.5m private swimming pool. The pool opens June through to the end of September.

On the first floor there is a large open planned area where the lounge,dining room, kitchen, two en-suite bedrooms one double and one twin are situated.

The local beach La Cinta is breathtakingly beautiful with fine white sand and crystal clear blue water. There are over 18 beaches and coves within a 10 to 20 minute drive from the villa. Should you decide to go to the many surrounding beaches parasols, beach towels and beach mats are provided free of charge.

You can of course just relax by the poolside. On a balmy summer evening one of our favourite pastimes is to sit on the balcony with a glass of wine, light some candles, listen to relaxing music and look at the night sky filled with twinkling stars. This is dolce vita at it's best.The area is also popular with cyclists, ornithologists and hill walkers. In the villa we have left informative leaflets and guide books.

The villa is situated within a "Blue Zone" this is classified where there is a large number of people who live to be over 100 years of age. Of all the blue zones throughout the World Sardinia has the most Centenarians. This is put down to the healthy food and in particular the Cannonau wine that the locals drink. There is a vineyard within a 15 minute drive where this delicious wine can be purchased.

For added security our e-mail address, land-line telephone number and home address will be supplied with the booking form. Genuine owners can be easily checked by telephone book, voters roll, etc. We are only to pleased to answer any queries or questions you may have.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Travelling with children and grandparents can be stressful. (Parents understand this.) The villa is huge and spotlessly clean with large well-proportioned rooms, you are not bumping into one another, great bedrooms, bathrooms and showers. Everybody gets a hot shower, unlike other places we have stayed where there is a tiny boiler. (The first person gets a hot shower and the rest a cold one.)



If you like peace and quiet with stunning views then this is the place for you. We did go into San Teodoro, Olbia and other places but were glad we could leave the noise and buzz behind. Thanks for the GPS coordinates to the villa, supermarkets, restaurants etc. This was so helpful and stress free when driving in a strange town. Keeping kids constantly amused is always difficult but having the pool kept them happy for hours, along with the play station and films. There was plenty of outdoor space with a nice barbecue area. I could go on. Basically the villa, area and beaches are beautiful. I have never seen such crystal clear water. We didn't venture to far from the villa as we found we had everything there for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. I would certainly book this villa again.

Peaceful Location

  • 5 of 5

Great Villa, no frills, but everything you need. Short drive to village of Padru for a good supermarket and butchers. Longer drive to San Teodora with large choice of eateries and La Cinta beach. All within easy reach including good choice of beaches along the coast north of San Teodoro. Do try the day trip over to La Maddelena and its satellite islands, breathtaking! Alan the villa owner is literally just a text away, he appears as if by magic, always on hand to help with queries or problems. Thanks Alan, for a great weeks holiday!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review of the villa and surrounding areas. You are quite right the areas around the island do need to be explored, there is so much to see. That's why a car is really essential. Delighted you all enjoyed your stay. Kind Regards Alan

Idyllic Rural Retreat

  • 4 of 5

Alan, the owner of the villa met us at the airport and we followed in our hire car on a 20 minute journey to the villa, calling at a winery en route where we bought some excellent wine at only €2 per litre!!

The villa is very spacious and occupies a site on a hillside overlooking woodland with views of the village of Padru and the mountains beyond. The lounge and kitchen are on the first floor, to taken advantage of the superb views from the balcony, where we enjoyed watching the sun set while having our evening meal.

Alan kindly accompanied us to the nearby town of San Teodoro and gave us the benefit of his local knowledge on cafes, supermarkets and bakeries there. He also took us to the beautiful beach of La Sinta.

The Agritorisimo Casteddu is a 20 minute walk from the villa where we enjoyed an excellent lunch, definitely to be recommended !!

If you are looking for a chilled relaxing week away from it all, but within a short drive from the airport and the beautiful beaches at San Teodoro, this is the place for you.

Superb week

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a magic week in this spacious, well appointed villa. If you want 'away from it all ' you can have it here and, conversely, if you want a little more going on you can visit San Teodoro or the small town of Padru only 5 minutes away by car.

Alan, the villa owner, could not have been more helpful. He advised us and helped us in many ways but was never intrusive.

We were very comfortable here and the views, oh the views are spectacular especially from the balcony where you can sit and have your meals or just sit after a swim or an outing and enjoy the beauty surrounding you.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Met at airport by Alan who drove with us to the Villa taking us enroute to supermarket and introducing us to the local vineyard where we bought some excellent wine to get us through the week. Villa beautiful, as a swimmer the pool was a great size to do lengths in the morning before laying around it for the rest of the day. View from the balcony is outstanding and we had most of our meals there taking in the view. We did eat indoors one night and on another used the barbecue in the garden ate at the dining areas outside. All the bedrooms were a good size with great en suite bathrooms and good power showers. Great size kitchen, well appointed with lots of cutlery, plates etc. Alan was on hand when needed and gave us the benefit of his local knowledge, including free parking areas in town and best ice cream shops! He also brought us yo one of the local beaches... which was gorgeous.

There are a couple of local Agriturisimo restaurants within walking distance .... they are fantastic! Padro is 5 mins down the road by car and there are local restaurants and a supermarket there. However, San Teodoro is only 15 mins (15km) away by car and there are a range of great shops and restaurants there.

We all agreed we wanted to return to the Villa in future as it was so peaceful and set in such a beautiful location

Perfect getaway for a large family group

  • 4 of 5

The villa was ideal for a large family group, each of the five bedrooms were spacious with en-suite facilities and the sizeable open plan kitchen-diner-lounge was excellent; perfect for dinner and evenings in together. We enjoyed sundowners on the balcony each evening watching the sunset behind the mountain opposite. The pool is good size too with lots of sun loungers. We had lunch alfresco and barbeques in the evening as there is a nice outdoor dining area too.

The villa is only half an hour or so from various beautiful beaches. We can highly recommend the Agritourismo that is only a 15 minute walk away, it's called "L'Olivastro" after the ancient olive trees on their land. The food was excellent. There's nothing going on in the next village, Biasi, which is within walking distance but a five minute drive will take you into Padru where there are a couple of good bars and a pizza place.

Very good family Villa with a fantastic pool

  • 5 of 5

Secluded within a oak forest the Villa Esmeralda provided the perfect retreat for our two families. Spacious accommodation and the large pool was a welcome sight after spending the day at one of the many local beaches. 15 minutes away is San Theodoro, a delightful local town with a great evening market and a good choice of restaurants. The local Agriturismo was a real treat and made for a memorable evening in a lovely setting. Even the kids at 13 and 16 enjoyed the food and atmosphere although they equally enjoyed the BBQ’s by the pool watching the stars. A enjoyable family trip and a place we will visit again.
