Domus de Maria Villa Rental Photos and Description

Contemporary 4 Bedrooms (2 lower ground), 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7

This is a new, modern Luxury Property, built in 2009 to a high standard and kept that way through annual renovation works. It has a fantastic fresh water infinity pool (10m x 5m) featuring an inside water sitting cocktail/sunbathing area. There is an outdoor kitchen/BBQ under a large patio for al fresco dining. The villa is surrounded buy a lush garden full or colourful local flowers and plants. The garden, like the pool, can be illuminated at night and both operate automatically.

The house is fully equipped with air conditioning (except for the 2 lower ground rooms where it is actually not needed as they always stay very fresh) and windows have built-in mosquitos screens (don't worry, there are only occasionally very few of them).

A second large patio with sofas, just outside the master bedroom, is ideal for romantic breakfasts or a tasty evening aperitivo.

At the ground floor you will find a bright and large open space featuring a fully equipped kitchen (including dishwasher) opening to a large living/reception room which again opens to the TV room equipped with international satellite broadcasting and Hi-Fi with Ipod docking station. 3G wireless internet is included. A second bathroom with shower is located here.

At the upper mezzaninne floor you will find the two main rooms. A master bedroom with large storage space, opening to a fantastic garden patio, a trendy, modern bathroom with a large crystal shower enclosure (a hidden washing machine is located in a cabinet here) and a second room sleeping up to 3 (a bunk bed + 1 single bed). On the lower ground floor there are 2 additional bedrooms with large storage room for a total of 3 beds. Single beds can be combined in several ways across the different bedrooms.

The property also features a solar (warm water) pool shower and automatic garden irrigation system. The property is fenced (wood) all around it, gated and offers its own private large parking place.

About manuele moi

We are an Italian family of four and despite living abroad for many years, we love this beautiful, relaxing and peaceful place. We come back every year for our summer vacations. My grandfather and my father are from nearby Cagliari and I feel at home every time I come back.

So, a few years ago we decided to buy a plot of land and built our holiday house under the design of a famous Italian architect based in Milan (Daniela Rossi Cattaneo). This is no ordinary villa.

You will love it!

And, if you are into skiing ask us about our property in Megeve, on the French Alps! have a look:

manuele moi purchased this villa in 2009

Why manuele moi chose Cagliari

I think that this part of south Sardinia, togheter with some places in Greece and Spain offer the most magnificent mediterranean sea. The fine white sand, the transparent blue sea during the day and at sunset, a nice, quiet and relaxing place to finish your day. Villacool! Alfresco cooking and dining under the stars (the view of the Milky way from here is impressive) is the cherry on the cake. We always spend here a two to three weeks summer holiday all together. The villa has been designed by a famous Italian architect based in Milan.This is why this property is so well kept, we designed, we built it and we still use it ourself! You will not find old or ugly pieces of furniture here and maintenance is done every year at the end of winter.

And at the end of a hot day, why not taking a night jump into the private and illuminated infinity pool at night?

Finally, if you are into skiing ask us about our property in Megeve, on the French Alps! have a look:

What makes this villa unique

We prefer to rent Villacool to families with children as we belive this is a great relaxing and quiet place. We would like to highlight that this is a modern, high standard villa which was not originally intended for holiday renting but was design to meet the desires and expectations of its owner that still use the Villa a few weeks every summer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Stefania and Manuele,

We really have to say that we enjoyed every single moment @ Villacool from our arrival to our (way too early) departure.

The way you are organizing Villacool is amazing. From the first contact when booking, the handover on arrival until our departure today, everything is perfectly organized.

The house itself is 100% as described, just that the reality is even brighter than the description, but if you would highlight it more in your description, people would think you are talking of the land of milk and honey :)

On every question sent by mail, I got immediate response and from the smallest lock to the biggest pool - everything works!

In short I would say: "SIMPLY PERFECT"

Thanks for everything & see you again.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 with children aged 15, 13 and 11 who have just returned from Villa Cool. The villa is absolutely beautiful and very well equipped with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. It is located in a very tranquil area just on the outskirts of Domus de Maria which has a lovely pizzeria and small local shops. The area is simply stunning and very tranquil perfect after a day spent on one of the many very beautiful beaches on the southern coastline. There are plenty of very good restaurants in the area but you definitely need a car. Pula is also a short drive away with a wonderful atmosphere at night and good shopping during the day. The beaches are all a short drive away with amazing crystal blue sea and soft sand, most have beach bars but the beaches can get quite busy in high season. If you are looking for a laidback relaxing holiday with a stunning pool then Villa Cool is perfect. The built in BBQ was fantastic and we spent a few nights eating in and playing cards around the pool. Manuele was a pleasure to deal with responding immediately to any questions we had. I would definitely have no hesitation in recommending Villa Cool. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your luxury villa it is very memorable.

The perfect house. The perfect holiday.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful location; gorgeous beaches, friendly locals, delicious food and the perfect house with a sublime pool. The house is very well set up with everything you could possibly need and the owners have organised and explained the workings of the house so well that the holiday began the moment we arrived-there was none of the usual stress on arrival and the first few days trying to understand how things work. We were super impressed.

We spent a spectacular two weeks at the Villacool and explored the beautiful beaches and local towns and ate exceptionally well. The house is so wonderful we found it hard to leave and wiled away hours and hours by the pool and read an unprecedented number of books between us. It was pure relaxation and recuperation and we can't wait to return.

La bella vita! Grazie mille!

Very Nice Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Villacool. The house is well equipped and very clean. Manuele was very helpful in making arrangements for our stay, and communications were excellent. Once we arrived, everything went smoothly; we were able to relax and enjoy all the house had to offer. The location is good with beaches, restaurants, etc. within a few minutes drive.

Beautiful property, well equipped, ideal for families and great location

  • 4 of 5

VillaCool is a lovely villa well thought out and great for families. It has a lovely shaded area close to both the villa and pool which is great if you have very young children and want to keep them out of the sun and yet still be close to the pool and villa. The pool is a nice size with great views over the hills.

We had a great holiday with amazing beaches only a short drive away. The village is also close enough to walk in and get you daily fresh bread. Would really recommend!

An amazing home in an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just got back from staying at Villacool for eight days. And wow, we had a great time!

First off, it is a very nice modern home. Everything worked when we got there, clean enough for my super-clean wife, a nice homey feel, great place.

Next off, the pool was great. I had trouble getting my kids out of the pool. And myself. It was wonderful, swimming there in quiet Pula, surrounded by the mountains...

I did agonize over whether I wanted a property on the beach versus Villacool, which looked great but is about a 10 minute drive from the nearest beach. I chose Villacool because the pictures of Villacool looked really nice. And I'm glad I did. Doma de Maria is so nice, in the mountains, really relaxing and pretty. Just calming. And there are several beautiful beaches within a short drive, so that's really not a big deal.

Overall, if you're looking for a place to stay in Sardinia, I can't recommend Villacool enough!
