Ideal location and relaxing...
Beautiful house with everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable holiday. We felt at home as soon as we arrived - warmly greeted by Serena who was on hand if needed. Lots of beautiful beaches that were close, making it easy to visit a different one each time. We visited Bosa, Oristano and Cagliari - again, all very easy to get to. Lovely friendly locals, with good food shops and cafes in the village. A large supermarket/shopping centre is 15 mins away by car. Absolutely loved our stay here - could not have wished for better or more. Thank you for making it such a little gem 😊�. Pete, Sara, Josh and Tig 🐾�

A very enjoyable week
Property was lovely and in excellent condition. Travelling with an 20 month old child, we found the provision for little ones was very good. It was important for us to have a bath in the property as this is part of her normal bedtime - this was the only place I could find with one. The property also had a high chair, travel cot, stair-gate and plenty of nice toys which was good.
In addition, it was nice to know that help was not far away if we'd needed it. The property manager texted us half way through the week to check we were ok (which we were!)
The Marshall Bluetooth stereo was a very nice also - daddy had fun with this :-)
Thanks for a wonderful week!
Great stay in La Tartaruga D'Oro
We spent fantastic 2 weeks in Sardegna. We had planned to explore the area a bit as well as to make trips further away, for which "La Tartaruga" was a great base. We always felt good coming back to this quiet little house, it indeed felt like our home away from home. We loved the garden, it actually looked much nicer than on the pictures as the plants and trees have grown bigger and it felt like an oasis. We enjoyed our mornings there with coffee and fresh cornetti from the nearby bakery, as well as evenings with chilled wine and grilled fish. As already mentioned in previous reviews, the house is delightfully furnished, well taken care of, very clean and equipped with everything necessary. The beaches nearby were great, a bit crowded in August but we still enjoyed them a lot. Last but not least, the communication with the owners was excellent, we were provided with loads of information and tips which proved very useful. We had a great stay, thank you Sergio and Claire!
Before arrival we had good communication with the owners, Claire and Sergio. We were provided with perfect directions so that we found our way to La Tartaruga very easily. The house and the property exceeded our expectation. All was furished yery stylish and the house was well equiped. We foud all we needed for our stay. Claire and Sergio had provided us with clear instructions how to use all the equipment (wifi, dishwasher, water pressure, etc.) so that we had no problems. Although in the center of Riola Sardo the garden which was enclosed by a high garden wall was wery calm and private. It was planted with lemon trees and pomegranate trees and was furnished for having dinner as well as for relaxing. All of the house and property was very clean and tidy. Moreover the owners provided us with a lot of recommendations for shops and restaurants which all were perfect.
We can recommend this property unrestricted and would come back :-).
Riola Sardo is a beautiful, tranquil village in the Sinis peninsula located 10km from the closest beach. Within 20 mins by car you can reach the stunning, wild and unspoilt beaches of Sardinia's west coast. Putzu Idu, Mari Ermi, Is Arutas, S'Archittu and San Giovanni are wonderful for diving, snorkelling, boat trips and kayaking. Capo Mannu, Sardinia’s most famous surf and wind surf spot is close by. The renowned golf club, Is Arenas Resort, is equipped with 18 holes and offers not only golf lessons but also a unique experience in this area: in fact, the 5-star hotel is open for most of the season also to visitors that are not guests and, among other things, proposes a top class restaurant, drinks by the pool, full breakfasts and SPA facilities. In the Riola area there is ample opportunity for wine tasting by visiting the local vinyards. For archaeology fans Santa Cristina, Nuraghe Losa, Cornus and Tharros ruins are a must see. Try Putzu Idu lagoon for spectacular bird watching, and the oasis of peace and nature in the 'Oasi Naturalistica di Seu'. For lots of fun activities for the little ones visit Torre Grande beach near Oristano. In February/March the surrounding area is the location of several carnival events especially the specatular 'Sartiglia'
