Overview

Sassari House Rental Photos and Description

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.

Details for La Chintana B 3 Bedrooms, Sleeps 8, 2 Bathrooms

The Chintana B is one of our independent and secluded properties fully made of stone; it is the central terraced house and can accommodate up to 7 people. It is composed of 3 bedrooms, one of which would be ideal for aged people because it is very secluded and can be closed to the rest of the apartment, only including the bathroom. This apartment is very autonomous. It features an independent entrance, a fridge and a freezer like the other properties. The other master bedroom is furnished with a master bed and a TV with DVD player. The third bedroom can be arranged in many ways according to our guests' needs and can accommodate up to 3 people thanks to its double or single bed (ideal for children), or thanks to a master bed if you need extra space. In the Chintana B there are two bathrooms for a highly comfortable stay, a dining room with TV and a country-style kitchen. The main door of the house opens onto a big paved space with wooden veranda and private outdoor barbeque.

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.

Peace & tranquility - a little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

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!

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

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.

Very nice and peaceful place

  • 5 of 5

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.

Geweldige vakantie in vakantiehuis La Chintana B.

  • 4 of 5

Wij hebben afgelopen zomer 2015 maar liefst 38 dagen doorgebracht in dit vakantiehuis. Je zou het een klein paradijsje kunnen noemen. Eerst een weekje samen met een bevriend echtpaar, daarna een drietal weken met de gezinnen van onze beide dochters en we hebben daar samen een aantal heerlijke weken beleefd. De rust en de ruimte van een afgesloten terrein, met eigen zwembad, veel groen en een bloemenpracht is vakantievieren in optima forma. Het huis is zeer compleet, maar basic ingericht; Drie slaapkamers met prima bedden en 2 badkamers. De familie Leoni heeft ons bijzonder gastvrij ontvangen en ervoor zorg gedragen dat wij ons helemaal thuis voelden op dit complex. Meermalen kwam Pietro met vers fruit en verse groente uit eigen tuin en stond hij ons met raad en daad ter beschikking voor het geven van informatie. Al met al zien wij terug op een heerlijke vakantie in een zeer bijzonder vakantie gebied op Sardinië. Pietro Leoni, Giovanna en Marco heel hartelijke bedankt.

Wij komen vast nog eens terug naar La Chintana.

Geweldig weekje vakantie in La Chintana suite.

  • 4 of 5

Ter oriëntatie op onze te boeken zomervakantie juli 2015 samen met kinderen en kleinkinderen verbleven wij eind oktober 2014 een week in La Chintana suite. Een comfortabel huis met alle voorzieningen en mede door het prima weer hebben we een heerlijke korte vakantie mogen doorbrengen op dit kleinschalige vakantiepark. Er stond een mandje met allerlei streekgerechten op de keukentafel en de gastheren Marco en Pietro hebben ons van alle mogelijke informatie voorzien. Pietro heeft ons zelfs een dag meegenomen in zijn auto om de omgeving te leren kennen en de mooiste stranden te zien. Wij zien er dan ook naar uit om in de maand juli daar weer een aantal weken vakantie te vieren in de grotere woning, aangezien we met 7 personen zullen zijn.

Wunderschöner Urlaub in Sardinien auf La Chintana

  • 5 of 5



Hallo Marco und Pietro,

wir wollen uns noch einmal sehr für die wunderschönen Tage auf Sardinien in La Chintana bedanken.

Was wir gleich am Anreisetag sehr schön fanden, war der freundliche Empfang von der Familie und die Einweisung in allen wichtigen Fragen zu unserem Aufenthalt. Da Pietro täglich vor Ort war konnten wir alles weitere ( Ausflüge, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Strände und Restaurants ) zeitnah in Italienisch-Deutsch klären.

Wir waren somit gleich in Urlaubsstimmung und die Kinder nutzten das weitläufige Gelände für Erkundungen und natürlich den gepflegten Pool für die notwendige Abkühlung.

Ein ganz dickes Lob gibt es für Pietro der uns immer wieder mit selbst angebautem Gemüse oder Früchte ( z.B. leckere Feigen ) versorgte und natürlich der Haus Katze "Mus-Mus".

Sie hatte viel Hunger ;-) und war somit unser regelmäßiger Gast bei Essen ;-))))

Wir fanden die Lage toll, weil etwas abseits vom Schuss, aber aus unserer Sicht war alles sehenswerte wunderbar mit dem Auto zu erreichen.

Sardinien hat uns sehr gut gefallen und war eine Reisen wert. Wir werden La Chintana in sehr guter Erinnerung behalten.

Man sieht sich immer zweimal im Leben ;-))

Lieben Dank an Marco und Pietro & Familie
