Please feel secure in the knowledge that we are not an agency. Also the write up and photos you see are taken by us and written by us about the property that you would be renting.

Also this property has been listed on Homeway since September 2009, so shows that I have a proven track record of renting this property.

Built in traditional style with high beamed ceilings in a quiet location on a hill in Pittulongu. This attractive airy villa built nine years ago, is set in pretty well maintained fully enclosed Mediterranean gardens with it’s own private swimming pool.

The large covered terrace offers stunning views across the bay to Isola Tavolara and Golfo di Olbia. For easy family meals there is a large gas BBQ .

The villa is very comfortably furnished with everything you would require for a successful family holiday.

About Ann Marie Reohorn

We are a family of 4, we first visited the island when our children were young,(they are now early twenties) and have seen them grow up enjoying the freedom and safety of this beautiful island - there is something for everyone!

As with all our guests we work very hard and are restricted to definitive holiday periods, so we try and make everyday count for our guests by sharing the knowledge that we have built up over the last 10 years.

We visit Sardinia regularly throughout the year so keep a close eye on the property so it is well maintained. We try and make the whole holiday decision making and booking as easy and painless as possible. So from the moment someone chooses to holiday in our property the fun starts!

Check out our accolades - they speak for themselves.

What makes this villa unique

The property is conveniently located close to Olbia and its airport, so transfers time is 15 minutes.

Locally we have restaurants, bars and shops that remain open all year round - very important.

We are situated in one of the prettiest and unspoilt areas of the island, yet it has the unique benefit of having access to amazing beaches, unspoilt countryside, the glamour of the Costa Smeralda.

We visit the island on a regular basis throughout the year, so keep a close eye on maintenance, our representative, and when we are in Sardinia are always available for our guests.

This property is uncluttered, but well appointed. The property reflects our personal experience of what we would like to have available to us on our holiday.

Yes it is a view that 'takes your breath away'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks Ann Marie , we had an amazing time and loved the villa with its beautiful view ! Apart from the delightful setting ,the highlight of our holiday was our day trip on the catamaran 'Pagan' with Jerry, which was fantastic and a day to remember ! The weather was perfect with blue skies all day ! We shared the trip with a lovely family and all got on extremely well .We had several other enjoyable days out which included a trip to the market at San Panteleo followed by lunch outside at cafe Zara on the way out of the town .We loved tasting all the cured meats and the typical Sardinian cheeses at the market and bought some to take back to the house .Unfortunately we found we had a parking ticket ,when we got back to the car after lunch, for parking on the pavement ! We spent the afternoon at La Marinella beach and enjoyed paddle boarding and I had a whole body massage !! We loved our trips to the beautiful port of Porto Rotondo with a lunch of small Sardinian tastes at Assaggia looking onto the small bridge and the port ! We were disappointed with the market there but as the town was so lovely it did not matter ! We went to Spiaggia di Ira after lunch ! Porto Cervo was an amazing visit where we enjoyed watching the array of impressive yachts in the port and walking round the pretty streets with designer shops . We enjoyed our lunch outside on the main piazza looking out onto the port and delightful yet rich ice cream puddings at La Pasqualina ! We spent the afternoon at Liscia Ruja beach which we eventually reached after driving down the 'at times' challenging dirt tracks !Locally our favourite restaurants were Mama beach where we had 3 meals and a more formal meal at the Hotel Pelican restaurant with its beautiful setting on the terrace looking out to sea ! We were impressed with the prices in general and enjoyed drinking the Sardinian wines we bought especially the whites and the rosés !! We enjoyed our evenings eating on the veranda at the house with its sea view !

We had an amazing time, and will certainly tell all our friends and family.

Gorgeous holiday home with superb view

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Ann Marie's lovely Sardinian getaway. The views from the property are amazing. You're only 15 minutes away from some stunning beaches and a short drive from the beautiful Costa Smeralda. Our favorite beach was Spiagga Bianca in the Golfo Aranci by the way!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful review and rating, which we rally appreciate. The photos in our advert and website never really capture the ever changing view, it is only when you arrive that you can really appreciate it. We chose this area as it is in a really convenient location for exploring the beautiful coastline and unspoilt interior of Sardinia. Also to have such a wide choice of amazing white sandy beaches is as added bonus, each with their own individual characteristic. Everyone has their favourite, Spiaggia Bianca is one of ours too. The villa is an ideal base for a family holiday especially as it is only a short 15-20 minute drive to Olbia airport so no long transfers.

Lovely villa, great area

  • 5 of 5

The villa was cool and spacious, great as the weather was very hot. It was clean and well maintained. Roberto who managed the property was available when needed and was very helpful. Great beaches within a short distance, but as it was very hot it was good to have a hire car to visit them. They can get very busy but just walk a short distance and the crowds thin out. The owner has left detailed information on things to do and it is worth reading this and doing some of the trips. We did the island boat trip from Canniglione which was very enjoyable and hired a small boat ourselves for a few hours from a local beach-great fun! We were tied to school holidays which made the holiday very expensive and quite hot but if you could go June or September I think that would be ideal!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay in our villa, and that you made the most of your trip to Sardinia. We spend a lot of time on the island, and try to maximise its potential for our guests by giving them plenty of helpful tips and interesting places to go. We and Roberto always try to be available for our guests whatever their needs, and pride ourselves in our quick response to enquiries. Sardinia is an island that is great to visit all through the year, May, June, September and October are fantastic months to visit as the island is given back to nature, is quiet and temperatures are more manageable. I have to say that this summer so far has been extremely hot, it is not normally this hot, even the locals are suffering with the heat!

A very nice property suitable for family five.

  • 4 of 5

We lovd this house very much as it was close to costa smeralda with all the attractions. The owner was very proffesional from the first contact, with quick respons to all of our questions. She also had a good local representative. The house was clean and well equipped with all the facilities listed on the website and even more, internet connection was established in the house when we arrived. That was not expected. We recommend restaurant fino beach at cala sassari, 15 min driving. A lovely place where you eat dinner out on the beach with lights in the water. The food there was excellent. A bit fuzz with new rules from local authorities regarding GarageBand storting system, but don't worry. You will handle it easily.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We have tried to provide everything we as a family require when we go on holiday, so I am pleased that you found the villa was well equipped. Find Beach is one of our favourite locations too, it is very romantic. Thank you for coping so well with the crazy new republish disposal rules, which we hope will be made easier very soon.

We have fallen in love with Sardinia and the villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a really relaxing holiday, probably the best ever in your beautiful villa. The location, views and swimming pool were perfect, we could not have bettered it. The write up about the villa was accurate, and we found it very comfortable. We did explore the area, the beaches are amazing, but it we really did not want to leave the beautiful terrace and pool. It was very sad to leave at the end of the holiday. Thank you for all your help and making our holiday so special, like you we have fallen in live with Sardinia. We hope to return very soon.

Owner's Response: I am glad that you had such a relaxing holiday, and appreciated the location and views. When I compiled the description for the villa, and chose the photographs I tried very hard to be accurate and show the villa and it surrounds in their true light, so that potential guests could make a well informed decision. I love it when our passion for Sardinia rubs off on our guests, and they go home and feel that their holiday was special.

A little piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing stay in this villa. As soon as we booked we were given lots of helpful information from Ann Marie from everything such as the best way to pick up the hire car, directions to the villa to who to contact should there be any problems, which there were not. When we arrived at the villa we were blown away by the gorgeous location and views. The villa itself was exceptionally clean and more than exceeded our expectations. The beaches were stunning and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Pittulongu.

My only complaint would be that we should of booked for two weeks. We will definitely be rebooking for next year.

I look forward to welcoming you again very soon.

Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

The photos do not do the view or the villa justice, both were stunning. The location was ideal, with such a short transfer time from the airport. We had a wonderful family holiday, the villa was very well equipped even down to a freezer bag, buckets for the children and a beach umbrella. We enjoyed the swimming pool and sitting on the terrace in the evenings soaking in the view. The information folder was very informative, and allowed us to find things very quickly. Ann Marie was very helpful and her passion for the island shone through. We will certainly be back.

I really value feedback from my guests, and always take on board all comments and suggestions. We think the villa and location is ideal for a family holiday, and love it when our guests think so too. Hope to see you again very soon.
