Overview

About the property

Stazzu Conca Piatta is ideal for families and groups from 6 to 9 persons.

Immersed in the Gallurese countryside, it is however only a few minutes away from Rena Majore Beach and its tourist resort, and a short 15-minute drive to Santa Teresa, the area's main town.

Hidden in a granitic valley with perfumes of "maquis", its numerous tall trees provide freshness even in the heat of the summer.

The villa, full of personal touches, is very spacious, providing all with privacy when desired.

Stazzu Conca Piatta, inside and out, has been renovated to facilitate wheel-chair access.

From the pool and its deck, the panorama is very particular.

The veranda, with its hammocks and b-b-q, as well as a large terrace shaded in part by the granites behind the house, are the main gathering areas.

The large and tastefully decorated living room welcomes you to read a book, watch TV or just to relax. When it is cold, its beautiful wood-stove creates a cozy atmosphere. There is also a yoga-carpet and a wonderful Buddha.

I have been praised by Chefs (as stated in the tourist comments), for my beautiful, large, functional and fully equipped kitchen.

All four bedrooms, each decorated with their own colors, have very comfortable beds.

The first bedroom has a queen-size bed and has its own terrace. The second bedroom has a queen-size bed and small child's bed. The third bedroom has two single beds, which joined, turns into a very comfortable queen-size bed; in order to provide sleeping accomodations for up to 4 children, another two beds can be added to this room. The fourth bedroom has a queen-size bed and a wheel-chair accessible shower; it is located on the lower level.

All three bathrooms have large walk-in showers; two of the bathrooms have wheel-chair accessible showers and have direct access to the bedroom.

An all-time favorite, during the summer, is the hot water outdoor shower.

The house's surroundings and the parking have all been modified to allow wheel-chair access.

The property includes a small vineyard, a little wood, an orchard and a vegetable garden where you are welcome to pick the season's fruit and vegetables.

Animal-lovers will fall in love with our dogs, two beautiful Abruzesi sheep-herd pups, Alina, a Weimaramer, and Poopy, a mixed-breed and the most gentle of all dogs. They can be fenced-in, upon request, to avoid any disturbance.

From the veranda, you can enjoy watching Monella and her daughter Stellina, two Sardinian donkeys.

Palchi No, a Sardinian Anglo-Arab and his companion, Monello, another Sardinian donkey, are at pasture a short walk away, and join us occasionally for an over-night visit.

There are a number of riding-schools in the area.

I do have a surprise for our young guests......

Your pets are naturally more than welcome. I do however reserve the right to decide whether they will be allowed in the house.....

I live on the property a small distance from the house. This allows me to take care of the garden and of the animals and oversee the property for your peace of mind as well as to provide you, upon request and schedule permitting, with cleaning service and babysitting.

I am English speaking and will be pleased to provide you with assistance and any information needed, if you wish so.

Physiotherapy and massage are available on-site, upon request.

Numerous restaurants, "agriturismi", including a vegetarian and a seafood agriturismo, offer a variety of local specialties.

Rena Majore Beach, with its fine white sand, is a short walk from the Tourist Village of Rena Majore. Other beaches in the area offer a great variety; sand, pebbles, rocks and cliffs are all within a short distance.

There is a beautiful swimming pool with restaurant, the Neulaghe, right in Rena Majore.

In the Village, you will also find a bar with a newspaper -stand, a gelateria (ice-cream store), a supermarket, a small grocery store and a pharmacy.

In-season, a doctor is available for private consultations.

In season, Rena Majore hosts numerous tourist activities, such a music and dancing in the Piazza.

For the young ones there is a playground, and a small circus passes through.

Archeological sites in the area include Nuraghis and Tombe dei Giganti, remnants from Sardinia's Nuragic Age.

In Santa Teresa di Gallura, a 15-minute drive, you will find many supermarkets, boutiques, bars and restaurants.

Thursday is market-day.

During the summer, every evening, the streets fill themselves with the Mercatino, the tourist market.

For nocturnal entertainment, the Estasis offers a disco for young people, and for the older generation, music from the eighties, in a marvelous outdoor setting.

At the port, you may rent sailboats, rubber dinghies.

Daily outings to the Islands are offered on motorboats with lunch included.

Scuba diving is available.

It is a short 50 minutes ferry-ride to Bonifacio, Corsica, where the Emperor Napoleon sojourned. With its stunning fortified town, it is an absolute "must".

It will be my pleasure to help you make your stay at Stazzu Conca Piatta, the vacation you dreamed of.

There is a surprise for the younger ones……

About olivia

I am Olivia. After having cruised halfway around the world, I chose to settle here in Conca Piatta, in the year 2000.

Raimund, my companion and physiotherapist, and myself, live in a corner of the property. We are animal and nature lovers. We take pride in taking care of the property, so that you can enjoy the beauty of surroundings and our animals.

olivia purchased this house in 2000

What makes this house unique

Lost in time......In a valley,surrounded by the perfumes of the maquis, oak trees and suggestive granits shaped by the weather since the beginning of time, Stazzu Conca Piatta struck my heart.....

As kids, we spent our summers in the Village of Rena Majore.

Fifteen years ago, after having roamed the planet, Conca Piatta put a spell on me...

...Where the soul finds peace....its spell is truly beyond time.....

"Very clean, really quiet...

  • 5 of 5

"Very clean, really quiet, in natural environment, really well equipped and nicely decorated. The house maybe somewhat hard to find the first time(which actually adds to the charm of the place).

Olivia''s house is beautiful. It''s close enough to the sea for easy access to it and far enough away from it for tranquility. At night there is total silence and an extremely beautiful starry sky. We were here last week with our kids and they loved it. As a hobby-cook, I enjoyed the kitchen very much."

Un petit coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour dans cette villa sublime, décorée avec originalité, très chaleureuse, située dans un cadre magnifique, avec vues sur la montagne, sur le jardin coloré, les oliviers, les orangers et mille et une fleurs multicolores...La villa et le jardin offrent plein de petits endroits intimes où chacun peut se laisser aller à de douces rêveries...On s y sent comme chez soi...rien ne manque..La cuisine est très bien équipée, les chambres sont spacieuses, la literie de grande qualité,...

Et s il n y avait que cela...Parlons d Olivia, une personne inoubliable...pleine de générosité, de bonté, de joie de vivre...avec un coeur en or...et aux petits soins..Il y a aussi Raymond, son compagnon, discret, souriant..

Et n oublions pas les chiens, chats, ânes...qui sauront ravir le coeur des petits et des grands...

Ma fille a même eu le grand bonheur de faire une balade sur le cheval d Olivia.

Je précise que nous étions sept personnes, enfant, parents et grands parents, et que nous avons tous éprouvé ce même enchantement..

Encore merci, Olivia, et c est sûr que l on se reverra!

Sardinian paradise

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Olivia, for making us so welcome in the beautiful Gallurese countryside.

The house was spacious and cool on the hottest of days and the outdoor space was fabulous - lots of shady areas to escape the sun in.

The girls very much enjoyed meeting all the animals, particularly the donkeys and one particular dog! And they will never forget their special ride on your beautiful horse.

We absolutely loved our time with you and the many hours we spent in the pool and sunshine.

Super vacances

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué cette maison à 2 familles et nous avons adoré ces vacances : la maison est spacieuse, bien équipée et construite avec qualité, le jardin d'Olivia est magnifique, elle cultive des fruits et des légumes délicieux, il y a des chiens très gentils et un cheval. Bref c'était un vrai paradis pour les enfants. La région nous a beaucoup plu, c'est éloigné des masses touristiques, et les plages sont accessibles rapidement en voiture. Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir !

A recommander !

  • 5 of 5

Maison très agréable et idéale pour se reposer dans le calme. Située à proximité du village de Rena Majore qui a toutes les commodités et des plages de la côte Ouest. Olivia et Raimund accueillent leurs hôtes de manière très agréable et sont toujours disposés à vous conseiller. Un endroit à retenir pour vos futures vacances sardes !

Un petit coin de paradis au coeur de la Gallura

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour, reposant et très dépaysant dans cette belle maison nichée au coeur de la forêt méditerranéenne, à quelques kilomètres de très belles plages. La maison est très bien aménagée, spacieuse, à la fois fonctionnelle et agréable, dans le choix des couleurs, de la décoration, des espaces de détente. Une terrasse ombragée et fleurie nous accueillait pour les repas et les moments de repos, où seul le chant des oiseaux troublait notre quiétude. Le jardin potager face à la montagne est magnifique, et Olivia, la propriétaire de ce lieu magique, nous a largement fait profiter de ses productions. L'accueil d'Olivia et de Raimund est attentionné, discret et très généreux. Nous avons également profité de la compagnie des deux chiens et nos filles ont fait plusieurs promenades à cheval inoubliables. Bref, que dire de plus, sinon que nous avons bien l'intention de revenir un jour ?

We are situated in the hills behind the Tourist Village of Rena Majore, on a country road between La Littighedda and Campo Rotondo. Once you've entered Rena Majore, follow directions for Agriturismo La Tegghia, and continue on for another 2 miles or so. You have reached your destination when , on the right side of the road, you see mimosas, a zinc gate and tall pine trees.

However, to make it easier, call and you will be accompanied from Rena Majore...

At Rena Majore, you will find a gelateria, 2 restaurants and pizzerias, 2 bars, 2 food stores, a farmacy, a tennis court, a large beautiful swimming-pool, a doctor and an ATM. In the summer, theme evenings take place in the piazzetta, with music and dancing. AA/NA meetings can be arranged. In Santa Teresa, you will find numerous supermarkets; thursday is market day. During the summer, the streets are taken over by the evening tourist market. Night-life lovers will get their fill at the Estasis, a beautiful open-air disco and piano bar, a few minutes from Santa teresa, out in the country. At the Port, you will find rubber boats, sailboats and motorboats for rent, as well as diving and organized outings to the islands. There is also a beautiful Wellness Center with swimming-pool, a few restaurants, bars and boutiques. Ferryboats leave for Bonifacio (an awe-striking fortified medieval town , built on a lime-stone promontory hanging over the sea), an absolute must!! The ferries to La Maddalena leave from Palau.
