Overview

Description

Villa Dharma, detached villa with private pool, 3 bedrooms, sleeps 6

Delightful detached villa with own private pool and large covered veranda with built in barbecue and spacious eating area (a real summer dining living room). Villa Dharma has been my primary home for a good part of the year when I still lived in Sardinia. I have now moved back to the UK so unfortunately I can only enjoy it for a small portion of the year. Since I am an estate agent that specialised in selling homes in the south eastern coast of Sardinia, during the summer the front pool veranda used to be my summer office. I felt very lucky indeed. The only sounds I could hear it was the birds singing and early in the morning the sea gently lapping the shore...

Villa Dharma is on two floors and comprises of: dining living room with French doors that lead directly to a very spacious covered veranda with huge wooden table that can comfortably accomodate up to 10 people, a fully equipped kitchenette with door that takes to the veranda that overlooks the private pool and the mature garden.

About the property

Villa Ami & Villa Dharma

I have the pleasure to offer for rent my two villas in Torre delle Stelle, in the gorgeous South East Sardinia. Both villas are 300 m away from the nearest white sandy beach, (the one you can see on the pictures). Each villa has its own private pool as well as private garden. They are both detached and presented in excellent conditions thoughout. Please note that you can do without a car as the shops and nearest restaurants are at short walking distance.

In the nearby beach you can hire water toys and take swimming lessons, you can scuba dive or snorkel or hire a small boat for exploring the gorgeous nearby coast. For the sake of clarity, please note that the first 11 pictures are of Villa Ami and its pool, then you have two pictures of the nearby beach, and 11 pictures of Villa Dharma. I will now give you a short description of my villas and more details will be found on the dedicated page each villa has.

Villa Dharma is the villa that my husband and I purchased 10 years ago to use it as our own holiday villa. We have very many happy memories here with our children, our family and our friends. We have now moved back to the UK and we can only use the villa a couple of weeks a year so we thought 'why not let other families enjoy this little jewel?'. Since villa Dharma used to be our main residence 3 months a year when we were still living in Sardinia, it has been totally renovated and a pool has been added to it. When we had the pool built it was to entertain our children while I was working on my computer on the covered veranda overlooking the pool. Please note that the water in the pool is salted which means healthier... Villa Dharma can comfortably accommodate 6 people as it has two double bedroom and a third bedroom with bunk beds. The master bedroom also has an ensuite shower room. All the bedroom are on the first floor and two of them have French doors to a panoramic terrace. The third bedroom can be accessed both from the inside and from the outside as it has it own independent entrance. On the ground floor we have a delightful dining living room with fireplace, a kitchenette and a third shower room. Both the living area and the kitchenette have direct access to the covered veranda with built in barbecue that during the summer becomes our open air dining living area as it is very spacious, light and shady. The veranda overlooks the pool and the mature garden. We also have an outside shower as well as off street parking.

Villa Ami has been built by my husband 4 years ago. It shares the entrance gate with Villa Dharma but they both have their own swimming pool with salted water and their own garden. They are therefore completely independent from each other. Villa Ami is also on two floors, it is very private and like villa Dharma very well furnished. The ground floor is a a spacious open space with dining area, living area and cooking area, we also have a guest cloakroom with washing machine. Two French doors lead directly to the outside paved area and overlooks the pool so that your children can play in it while you do your own things such as reading with a glass of good wine in your hands. On the first floor we have 3 bedrooms (one double with en suite shower room, one twin and a single bedroom). All the bedrooms have their own balcony overlooking the pool and the surrounding greenery... There is also a family shower room.

In the garden there is an outside shower and a built in barbecue. Villa Ami comfortably accommodates 5 people, a couple with 3 children.

Please let me know if you have any more question and I would be more than happy to answer them!

Torre delle Stelle is the perfect place for exploring the gorgeous South East Sardinia, but also for a relaxing holiday...

About Angela

My name is Angela and I am married with Karim. We have lived in the UK, where both our two children (14 and 17) were born, for a long time and we just loved it. 9 years ago we decided to move back to Sardinia as we were missing the sun and my family too much as I am originally from South Sardinia. 17 years ago, before our children were born, Karim and I went on a tour in Torre delle Stelle and simply fell in love with the uniqueness of this enchanting environmentally protected area. Shortly afterwards we purchased our first villa in the village which we started to let straight away as our use of it was limited to only 3 weeks a year. Given the success we had with the rentals, we decided to invest more in Torre delle Stelle and purchased villa Dharma, a few years later Karim built Villa Ami. I have to be honest my contribution was minimum, he has done a great job all by himself.

Angela purchased this villa in 2010

Why Angela chose Cagliari

As mentioned in the 'About you' section, I did not buy Villa Ami, my husband built it according to the latest building and safety regulations. The villa was in fact built 4 years ago and everything, electricity, water and etc is fully certified. The property is therefore practically brand new and has been built bearing in mind what a family would normally want when renting a villa on which to spend a holiday: walking distance to gorgeous beach, walking distance to bars, cafes and restaurants, walking distance to play area and last but not least a pool with salt water (no chemicals!) on which the children can play while the parents read, sunbathe, or enjoy a glass of good wine either from the terrace or from the living area without losing sight of their children. Villa Ami is all this and you can definitely do without a car.

Torre delle Stelle is perfect for families with young children, the villa is child friendly and the beach which is literally at 300 m (walkable) away is absolutely gorgeous and the perfect setting for making friends. Most owners are professionals from Cagliari that spend their summers and their weekends in their villas so there is a sense of community that adds to the loveliness of the area. Pretty much everything food-wise is available to buy in Torre delle Stelle again at short walking distance, around 100 m. In Cagliari there are two amazing markets where you can buy all sorts of seasonal fruit and vegetables, fresh fish, meat, home made bread and cakes and etc. It is a real feast of colours and lovely aromas, as well as a good chance to meet the locals going about their daily routine. Cagliari herself deserves a day, the beautiful old part called 'Castello' (Castle) is set in the most elevated part of the town and offers staggering views of the entire Gulf of Cagliari. The 10 km long local beach also deserves a visit as well as the nearby lagoon which is home to hundreds of pink flamingos, that live in it all y

Car: not necessary

Torre delle Stelle is situated on the South-East coast of Sardinia 35 km away from Cagliari, Sardinia's main town, and its airport. The village is environmentally protected and its beauty has been enchanting visitors since it was created 30 years ago to the point that it has now become one of the most sought after areas of South Sardinia. Torre delle Stelle has 2 easily accessible sandy beaches, Genn'e Mari and Cannesisa and a few sandy and rocky coves that can be reached by boat. There are shops, restaurants, bars and pizzeria at short walking distance. However, since Torre delle Stelle is only partly inhabited all year round the shops and restaurants are not open every day of the year. However the main food shop is opened (7 days a week) starting from mid May and up to the end of October. The restaurant is opened at weekends only until June. For the rest of the year the food shop and bar nearby are open from Friday to Sunday included. It is therefore possible to stock up with groceries and food, or else go to the supermarket on the way to Cagliari which is a 15 minutes drive away. Beach bars are open from June to September due to local regulations. The nearby beach is absolutely gorgeous and the sea is very safe for children. I have been holidaying here since my youngest child was 6 months old and my eldest 3 and I still believe that it would have been difficult to find a better location. My son enjoys fishing on the rock formation which is right at the end of the beach, and snorkelling and scuba diving are a real delight. There is also a scuba diving school in Torre delle Stelle which is ideal for anyone looking to learn to scuba dive but also for those of you that have already practiced this sport and would like to have an excursion organized for you. There is a war ship 1.5 miles away from the beach, and 56 m down the sea that can be visited by expert scuba divers. Thanks to its position Torre delle Stelle is the area of Sardinia that enjoys the longest summer to the point that it has its own micro climate. Other amenities in the village include: diving centre, tennis courts, football and basketball grounds, playground.

Beautiful quite and very relaxing, as described in the information given by the owners

  • 5 of 5

Myself and My partner stayed in September 2017 for two weeks. spending the first week to ourselves. And our children and their partners for the second week.

Villa Dharma was as described by Angela. its really is a great place to get away from it all and relax. Angela and Karim a very helpful and respond to any questions you have really quickly.

Although we liked the villa from the Pictures anyway, they actually do not do the Villa as much justice as seeing it for yourself. its a really lovely place to spend time alone and with family. the rooms are much bigger than shown in the pictures and nicely set out really is a home from home.

Their is a family run Supermarket a few seconds away from the villa down the hill towards the beach, which Angela has said was a family run business with coffee shop and Pizzeria.

where you can get fresh bread and cakes and meats.

We had planned to stay at the Villa most days and cook ourselves, but on the second day we tried the pizzeria and had really lovely meal, and visited again quite regularly during our stay, it was great food and very reasonably priced. All the staff where really helpful.

The beach also is only a five minuet walk from the Villa and again is a really lovely place in to spend sometime, this also has a beach Café run by Marco and his wife where you can arrange boat trips, pedal boats and other sea activates.

We chose Villa Dharam from the descriptions given as we did not want to hire a car, so we could relax and enjoy which we did, As everything we needed was in walking distance.

This is somewhere we will come back and stay again as we feel we should have actually hired a car and ventured out as torre delle stella has a lot more to see.

Thank you Angela and Karim you Villa is amazing

Excellent Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We could not fault the accommodation. All well presented and maintained. The garden and pool area are amazing and a real pleasure to spend evenings dining at the large patio table in such surroundings. The open plan living area worked really well and the two large bedrooms were very comfortable. We feared that the 3rd bedroom would be a bit cramped for 2 teenagers to share but it worked fine. Location is quiet, near an excellent supermarket and lovely beach. Owners are friendly, helpful and genuine. Excellent spot to spend a lazy week.

Owner's Response: We are ever so pleased that you all enjoyed your stay and that everything went well for you.

Thanks again for choosing Villa Dharma it has been a real pleasure to get to know you. We wish you all the best and hopefully we will speak again sometimes in the feature. Kind regards Angela and Karim

A lovely place to spend a week (or more)

  • 5 of 5

A charming and comfortable villa with great facilities located in a quiet village location. It was clean and the provided welcome pack was a great start to the holiday. Shops and restaurant very conveniently located just two minutes away with other restaurants and shops in the area needing just a short drive. The local beach is a three minute walk away and is clean with white sand. Four of us adults were staying for one week and thoroughly enjoyed the villa. Plenty of room inside the villa and the outside spaces are great. The pool clean and attractive.

A wonderful villa in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly as described and was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The outside area was lovely and the pool was ideal for my 3 children. The beach was a short walk away as were the restaurants and well stocked supermarket. We didn't really need to go anywhere else but wanted to visit nearby beaches. We weren't disappointed, the beaches in Sardinia are wonderful and we wished we could have stayed longer to explore the area more.

Fantastic Stay at Villa Dharma

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week at Villa Dharma. We had a fantastic time. Everything in the house is as described - the garden is really clean and nice; the terrace and the pool are just what you need after a day at the beach. The villa is very conveniently located in Torre Delle Stelle: close from the market, close from one very good restaurant and close from the beach. (the kids 15, 12, 10 were going to the beach on their own). Angela is a very nice person and Kharim has been very helpful all along - I highly recommend this location.
