About the property

Enjoy your private beachfront in the very heart of the marine park of La Maddalena, with this stylish and comfortable 1000 sq. feet apartment just 30 feet from the beach and the sea, among some of the clearest waters spots in Sardinia.

For six people: three double bedrooms, 1 single bed, two bathrooms, a dining room with fully equipped kitchen in sight. Two floors, two bathrooms, two separate parts of the house - ideal for groups of friends or families. First floor: large living room with sea view, kitchen, one bedroom with double bed, one bedroom with sofa - bed (160 cm ) and a bathroom. From the lounge, stairs lead to the first floor: an open space composed of two bedrooms, one with a single bed and the other one with a double sofa bed, plus a second bathroom. Each floor has its own entrance from the living room and kitchen. Fresh and inviting, the house is equipped with everything you need for a perfect stay.

Portofaro Residence is among some of the most exclusive real estate properties in North Sardinia, providing its hosts with a secured and quiet environment, a coffee-bar, a pasta-bar, and a private mooring (prices upon request). Forget the car and enjoy the pleasure of “parking” your boat just under your house.

Many different restaurants are located nearby, such as La Gritta, as well as local farms which offer menus from the tradition of the countryside: the tasty local food and wine (pork, fish, local breads, wine...) shall not be missed!

The small town of Palau is only 10 minutes by foot through a relaxing pine-wood/pedestrian walk.

Palau is in the centre of Gallura region in the north of Sardinia. Gallura has an original landscape with big rocks shaped by the wind in magic figures, and a Mediterranean bush.

The town is only 10 min by car to Isola dei gabbiani (surfers' paradise); 25 min to Porto Cervo-Costa Smeralda; 20 min to Santa Teresa di Gallura; 35 min to Olbia-Golfo Aranci.

You can forget your car and get out of the house barefoot, and choose among the many beaches and coves hidden among the rocks. Or choose to “park” your boat just under your house (prices upon request).

The natural reserve of La Maddalena, a marine park with more than 60 islands, is waiting for you. A unique landscape of granite rocks shaped by the wind and beaches of fine white sand.

Portofaro Residence is guarded and benefits from its position ans its Mediterranean gardens. You will find there a coffee-bar, a restaurant and a gym. And in the evening people meets at Portofaro's " Piazzetta ", a small square overlooking the sea, the ideal setting to relax and chat with a good drink.

perfect appartment for a calm holiday

  • 5 of 5

The appartment is on a perfect location, with view on the little lighthouse, empty beaches everywhere nearby. Don't expect crowded places, and lots of amusement, tourism in the month of may seems to be still unknown here. But there is a lot of nature, landscape, environment to enjoy. The house has sleeping accomodation for 6 persons with 2 bathrooms. With just 4 people it suited perfectly. You will need a car for sustenance shopping.
