About the property

"La Chintana" Holiday House

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.

La Chintana was very secluded, with everything we needed for our stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at La Chintana (C) for 12 days in Sept 2016, we found the property comfortable with all our basis needs, Pietro was really helpful, initially we following him from Palmadula to the property, then afterwards he was very helpful on a daily basis, we made ourselves understood even though we have very little italian language. Tom the ginger cat was also a regular visitor!.

La Chintana is well positioned (although you can't really walk to a beach), several really secluded beaches are really close 10mins drive, we made the effort to explore all of these including some interesting driving down dirt tracks!. La Pelosa beach was very pretty, although we avoided it during the busy times.

We spent a quite a bit of time at Algero which has a lovely historic walled town, Stintino which is really nice port with some nice restaurants.

We also went on a few boat trips including, a yacht to Asinara, boat trip to the grotte di nettuno and a lovely yacht trip to see the sunset.

All in all Sardinia is an amazing place, chilled out, great scenary, crystal clear water, great people. La Chintana was a really nice comfortable base to either spend your time at or to come back to after a day out.

Lovely tranquility, great hosts!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful setting in a rustic farmhouse with resident cat, fish and chickens. Marco and the Leoni family are lovely people and could not do enough to make our stay enjoyable. The surroundings are well away from civilisation which means that the farmhouse is very tranquil and therefore relaxing for a de stress holiday. A car is definitely required and given the lack of surrounding amenities it would not be ideal for older children or teenagers.

The pool was perfect for a cooling dip and nice sunsets can be seen from the outside eating area. The interior fittings and equipment were all rustic and well thought out. In summary we would 100% recommend Chintana for a get away from it all break.

A Little Piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit. We absolutely love it here as it is so tranquil, cosy and rustic. The property is very well maintained set in beautiful gardens. The Leoni family are a wonderful family who look after all your needs. A car is required as there are so many stunning places to see, especially secluded beaches. We will be returning hopefully with our grandchildren next time.

Absolutely perfect place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented the 1 bedroom accomodation at La Chintana. It was perect for us at the end of a row of 3 cottages and with no other guests at the time of our stay it was tranquility at its best. Marco and his father where very helpful with advice on places to eat and what to see in the area. The pool wasn't open due to the time of our stay but the gardens and the pool area looked as if they would be lovely in the summer season. The house is situated on the outside of a little village with all amenities and although the house itself would be hard to find it wasn't an issue as Marco met us in the village and took us to our accomodation. He is a lovely guy with very good english ,so no language barrier. The area around Stintino especially the beach is breathtaking with turquoise blue seas and white sand really beautiful. If and I'm sure we will return to Sardinia we would have no hesitation in staying here again.

Thanks for everything Debi and Geordie- N Ireland

Perfetto

  • 5 of 5

We recommend La chintana as it is a very beautiful and calm place on the country side. It's the second time there and we just love it! The fact that you have your own fully equipped kitchen is great. The area around the house is very spacious and the garden is well-managed. This place is a great choice for a peaceful holiday. The hosts are very lovely and helpful, in all situations.
