The Chintana, the sea and the countryside in a very relaxing ambiance
The Chintana enjoys an idyllic location and lies in the perfectly uncontaminated Mediterranean scrub, near beautiful landscapes made of hills and rocks, with sea view from the swimming pool. The property was obtained from old rural buildings and is divided into 3 independent units of different size; up to 16 guests can book them together. Otherwise, each of them can be booked as a single unit for smaller groups. All units are separated from each other and offer total privacy, comfortable bedrooms, functional bathrooms and fully equipped country kitchen opened onto wide living or dining rooms. The enchanting gardens are well kept and include wide lawn areas, evocative paths through small woods, barbeque and seats to dine outdoor. The Chintana is located on the magnificent north-west coastline near Capo Mannu, between Pozzo San Nicola and Palmadula. The enchanting location of Chintana is surrounded by natural paths, through which you can walk or ride a bike, while admiring breathtaking panoramas and discovering the typical Mediterranean products. If you are nature and relax lovers, you are in the right place. Hiking onto these paths, you can reach the sea in only 35 minutes, since the coast is composed of massive cliffs covered with luxuriant Mediterranean scrub (all paths are shown on specific signposts and in the list of information that you will find inside the property). Just few minutes away by car, you will find a wide range of beaches and outdoor activities. Our house is 25 minutes away from the Alghero airport and 20 minutes away from the Stintino village.

About Marco Leoni
My name is Marco Leoni and I am a freelance agronomist. Our passion for this land and its ancient traditions made my family and I decide to renovate the old “Chintana” farmhouse, which dates back to 18th century. Then, we gave new life to a small corner of paradise that we want to share with all those who love the authentic Sardinia, away from the chaos of the everyday life.
Marco Leoni purchased this House in 2001
Why Marco Leoni chose Sassari
Our property is a precious jewel of the authentic Sardinia, and sharing it with foreign guests made us very satisfied with this activity.
What makes this House unique
The Chintana is a country house nestled through evocative hills and rocks. It offers an enchanting sea view from its swimming pool and is just 10 min away from many uncontaminated beaches and shores. Our property is ideally located only 6 km from Palmadula on the wild northwest Sardinian coast, between Alghero and Stintino. It enjoys a very quiet and secluded position, which is ideal for those who want to spend a relaxing holiday in the countryside, still having all modern comforts and the main tourist destinations nearby. The nearest village to our house is Palmadula, which is full of shops for your daily needs, while 24 km away you will find Stintino, a small fishing village offering a wide range of bars, restaurants, shops, supermarkets and an open-air weekly market. After leaving the Stintino village, you will reach Capo Falcone with its National Park on the Asinara Island. You can easily reach La Chintana in 30 minutes by car (if you arrive from the airport) or by ferry (from the port of Porto Torres). If you decide to arrive at night, we offer our guests a transfer service from the airport or Porto Torres’ port to La Chintana upon request.

We had a wonderful week at La Chintana with our 3 young daughters. It's just as it says in the description. Very quite and peaceful location, clean with nice gardens and a fabulous swimming pool. Apartments are comfortable and tastefully decorated in a traditional style, and they had everything we needed for our stay. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. A great place for a base if you want to explore the north west of Sardinia. Totally recommended.
It was a great pleasure to host you, you have been exceptional guests, your kindness has been impressed, there are guests that all the owners would like to accommodate. We look forward to seeing you again next year, we wish you a great hug from Sardinia.
Early friends, we wish you a good summer.
Marco and family Leoni.
Peace & tranquility - a little piece of paradise!
This is THE place to go if you're looking for a get-away-from-it-all holiday. The house and gardens are so lovingly looked after that you just can't help feeling well taken care of. The house was clean, tastefully but simply decorated and equipped and the proprietors were very friendly and helpful. We just enjoyed the peace and quiet and the fact that it was well away from any bustle or crowds. One definitely needs a car in order to reach the supermarkets and beaches and to do some sightseeing, however it was always a pleasure to come back to the tranquility of La Chintana after being out for some time. It's certainly a place I would recommend to people looking for some peace and quiet and we would certainly like to visit there again, maybe with our children next time!
it was really a pleasure having you as guests in La Chintana not forget your kindness and gentleness.
We hope to see you again next year in The Chintana.
A hug from Sardinia.
Marco and Family.
A Little Piece of Heaven
We stayed at La Chintana B which sleeps 7 really comfortably. King size beds and proper single beds, 2 shower rooms with toilets and large living area with a well equipped kitchen. Outside you have your own private area with a BBQ and dining area. The swimming pool was cleaned daily and the vast grounds are well maintained and exceptionally beautiful. It is very tranquil and you do need a car to get about. The secluded beaches are stunning. Marco and his family looked after us well from fresh fruit, vegetables from the grounds and eggs from the chickens that was left for us on a regular basis, whilst Pietro tended to the grounds everyday and made sure we had everything we wanted. He didn’t speak English much but we had great fun trying to understand each other. We will definitely be going back again and hopefully taking the rest of our family.
you were fantastic, we really hope to see you again, your kindness and sympathy we remain in our hearts.
See you soon dear friends.
Very nice and peaceful place
We would highly recommend La Chintana because it is a wonderful place to stay if you want peace and quiet. The apartment we rented was spacious, had everything you needed, such as kitchen equipment for cooking. The garden is large and there are parking facilities.
La Chintana is located in the countryside and the area is very cozy.
The hosts are very hospitable and helpful.
To remember is that this is a holiday house and breakfast must be arranged by your own.
Thank you for your testimony as staying at La Chintana, we had great pleasure to have you as our guests. Thank you for your kindness and courtesy, we hope to see you again next summer.
Happy 2012 and happy holidays.
A warm greeting from the Leoni Family.

Estuvimos 7 personas (4 adultos y 3 niños) en el apartamento grande. Todo fue fantástico. La casa es muy bonita, la piscina genial, todo muy cuidado, se estaba super tranquilo y disfrutamos mucho la estancia. La atención de Marco y Pietro fue fantástica, ayudándonos y aconsejándonos con lo que necesitábamos. De hecho ya lo fue ya desde la primera comunicación con Marco durante la contratación de la casa. Un auténtico placer, se nos hizo corto. Muchas gracias por todo.
estoy mui feliz qui aveis pasado bien la vacaciones en La Chintana, esperamos qui volveras todavia en mi casa patra otra vacaciones.
Gracias a vosotros, eres personas mui agradable.
Un abrazo de Sardegna.
