The styling of the interior of the house was really lovely and there was plenty of room for a family of four people. The location looking down a very picturesque valley was stunning and we found the local people in Seulo and surrounds to be lovely...as were the owners of the house who very kindly supplied food and wine on our arrival. Our only criticism would be the upkeep of the garden areas and the bikes. It didn’t bother us but this is an area that could be improved.
We would highly recommend visiting Agriturismo Ticci next door. We ate there twice and the owners are lovely and the food was fabulous.
Because Seulo only has a couple of small general stores, you may want to pick up supplies before arriving, particularly if you intend to cook at the house.
Overall, we had a great time, the real Sardinia is here. It’s quiet, relaxed and beautiful.
Grazie a questi splendidi ospiti per gli apprezzamenti sulla casa e sul posto. Per quanto riguarda il giardino abbiamo già incaricato degli operai specializzati in modo da migliorarlo ma lasciando l'identità di un giardino rustico con le piante caratteristiche della macchia mediterranea
Really disappointed! The property was down an overgrown track and the garden looked like a builders yard (plus additional dog poop) very isolated (which is what we normally go for) there is nothing around - nearest decent(ish) shops for food 6 miles away. The property was musty and damp (I took photos of the flaking paint) we stayed one night then left. I emailed the owner with photos and comments I had an apology but no offer of a reduction or to put things right for other guests - the owner said it was the first time anyone had commented negatively but there is another similar review on here - which I took with a pinch of salt (wish I hadn’t) !
Thanks for your rewiew.
Regarding to the garden, as you can see, all the photos on the website show a rustic garden with flowers and typical plants of Mediterranean forest.
Regarding to the dogs'poop, we were so sorry for the inconvenience and we apologised: the property is separated from the road by a gate, so normally it is inaccessible to dogs. However we can’t rule out as a very exceptional event that a stray dog snuck in crossing the vineyard.
Moreover, the property is exactly 4,5 km from the village and shops, because it’s a country house surrounded by the nature. By the way it’s not completely isolated: there are many houses closed to ours and the “Agriturismo Ticci” is 100m away from our property.
Regarding to the point of humidity, unfortunately the shower-sink broke, so there was a water ingress by there and it scraped off the peeling of the plaster. Anyway it has been repaired and we introduced an insulation system to protect the house from humidity and mildew.
Regarding to the last point, we let the e-mail we sent to you speak for us:
“I'm really sorry and sad because you left our house: the hospitality is very important for us so It would be a pleasure for me to have you as my guests again in Seulo, without paying (gratis).
We could decide together about the period.
I really hope you'll change your opinion about Seulo and you will enjoy a beautiful experience.
It also would be a pleasure for us inviting you for a boat trip on our boat in Cagliari, if you are still here, to show you our amazing sea.
Let me know about it,
As you can see, we always try to do the best we can to remedy any type of inconvenience and take care of our guests, because making you feel comfortable and letting you enjoy a beautiful experience is our priority.
Relaxing and wonderful natural place. Like a movie!!
Pure naturalness in a wonderful incredible green landscape. The house looked like a movie country house, really particular and very nice. It was clean and warm, so we have been feeling very comfortable since the first moment. The owners were so kind and they gave us a typical wine made in the vineyards of Seulo. We had a typical Sardinian dinner with that wine and it was delicious!!
A magic and relaxing place where we'll definitely come back.
We are a well-travelled couple and we find it impossible to understand why some visitors have given this property a 5-star rating. It is the worst property we have ever stayed in.
We did not feel welcome. We arrived on a cold wet day to find the property padlocked and unprepared for our visit. We could have readily forgiven this if the property itself were in good order but the outside area was weed filled, rubbish was stored in the barbecue and the inside was poorly presented.
Electrical fittings were substandard. Loose electrical cables hung out of walls throughout the property. In one bedroom there was a plastic tube direct to the outside where a heater had been removed and the aperture had not been closed off. In the main bedroom there was an ineffectual gas-electric heater. When it rained, the water ran in through the window frame and down the back of the heater. It was not possible to cook a meal because, when the oven was turned on, the whole electrical system tripped off. We were told, “No you can’t use the oven because it makes the electric go off”. An electric fan heater was provided in the bathroom which was plugged in to a standard wall socket adjacent to the wash basin. There was no kettle (!) and the toaster had to be placed on the floor in order to be plugged in to the only available socket in the living area.
Fittings and hygiene were substandard. The washing up sponge-scourer was dirty and worn through with holes. The fridge and cooker were yellowed with age. The fridge door was held closed with a hook and eye screwed onto the panels. The drawer beneath the fridge was mouldy and stained and the freezer drawers and the sink were dirty. In the bathroom were more used sponge-scourers - presumably left from cleaning the bathroom after previous guests. Another room, which was black with mildew, was used for storage and contained a confusion of items including carrier bags of foodstuffs. The Wi-fi did not work and the contents of the house were old and time worn. It was shockingly poor.
The owner of the property did, after some time, offer us a free meal at the nearby restaurant. Manuela (the cook, we believe) was kind and tried to help but these actions, and the promise of an electrician the following day, were not enough to assuage our overall dissatisfaction. We left at noon the day after our arrival and booked into a hotel.
I am sorry if you didn’t feel comfortable in my property. It’s really curious that all the other our client have been so excited and enthusiasts about the house and the beauty of the place. We’ve never said you couldn’t use the oven, but we warned you that if you have turned on all the domestic appliances and the heat pump at the same time, they would have made the electric goes off. The message’s meaning is different.
Any way, we rushed to solve theirs problem, the same evening we invited them for dinner at the restaurant near the house because we felt bad for the inconvenience. In the morning we sent the electrician because we thought there was a problem but it wasn’t. The clients have just turned on all the warming stove (in the bathroom, in the kitchen in the living room and in the bedroom!!), lights, water heater and stoven all together..so of course the electric went off.
In every house’s bathroom and in every 5 star hotel there is a wall socket near the wash basin. The toaster is situated on the furniture and there is a wall socket near that so nobody needed to put the toaster on the floor. The kettle is not included in my house description. The house is in a very good conditions, there is no mildew and we painted all the house a short time ago. Frankly we really care about the cleaning and this is an aspect that all the previous client noticed and underlined.
I am sorry you didn’t like the vintage furniture, it’s a country house so the furniture combine with the environment and not with the modern style. There were lot of pictures of our property on the website so you could see before booking.
The barbecue outside contains the instruments to be used. The outsides of the house is obviously rustic, immersed in the green, with grass and trees. This is another aspect for which our clients leave the house enchanted and relaxed.
There are no pending electrical cables, and if it rains the water doesn’t come in by the windows. That was the Flinstone movie.
In addition, I want “to thank” our clients for leaving the property 4 days before, without warning, leaving the door open to robbers, burglars or everyone, and leaving the key hung on the door. That was really inadmissible.
I warmly suggest to this couple another typology of vacation, in a very modern 5 star hotel in the city, and not a country house immersed in the unspoiled nature of Seulo.
Ein wirklich toller Ort
Wir haben die Woche oben in den Bergen sehr genossen.
Es ist tatsächlich so, dass man in diesem Haus komplett seine Ruhe hat und ziemlich abgeschieden ist von Dörfern etc. (nach Seulo fährt man ein paar Minuten) es war also genau das, was wir gesucht haben. Im Haus selbst gibt es alles was man braucht und was uns besonders gut gefallen hat, dass die verschiedenen Vormieter noch brauchbare Sachen wie Olivenöl, Gewürze oder Handseife einfach vor Ort lassen und diese nicht unnötig weggeschmissen werden.
Auch die Natur in der Umgebung ist super geeignet für Wanderungen zu verschiedenen schönen Orten.
Uns hat der Aufenthalt wirklich sehr gefallen und wer einfach mal ein paar Tage abschalten möchte, ist hier genau richtig.
Schönes Haus im Grünen
Schönes gepflegtes Landhaus.
Wer eine ruhige Lage, abseits vom Tourismus, in den Bergen Sardiniens sucht, ist hier bestens beraten.
Leider kann der wünderschöne Grill im Garten nicht benutzt werden, das kein Rost und Grillbesteck vorhanden ist.
Sehr Empfehlenswert ist auch ein Abendessen im nur 70 m entfernten Local "Agritourismo Ticci".
Wir kommen gerne wieder.
Thanks for your feedback.
The grill is certainly rusted because it had not been used for so long as the roasting tools. In any case we have replaced the grill and the tools with new ones.
Thanks again for your beautiful words.
The location lends itself to both enjoying nature within the structure as the quiet and charm that characterize the surrounding landscape arouse deep emotions in the visitor. The visitor can also devote himself to relaxing walks through valleys, plains, woods and unforgettable excursions through wild routes and naturalistic beauties that can be easily enjoyed, such as waterfalls, caves, streams, nuraghi and many others, unique in their beauty. In the town, just a few kilometers away, festivals and village festivals are organized, extended also to neighboring countries, which allow guests to appreciate the value of traditions and local food and wine proposals.
