Definitely Charming

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment is located in a lovely gated property close to Porto Rafael. It does have access to a small beach but you definitely need a car to take advantage of the many beaches in hte area and to reach the supermarket and local town (Palau). The property is very well equipped and maintained. It can sleep four using the sofa bed in the lounge, but the lounge/kitchen is open plan so when the first person's up you're all up! Outside space is limited but private. There's enough space for relaxing in and a large table and chairs if you want to dine al fresco. There was no bbq as stated in the details. The owner is lovely and speaks good English. One note of caution - the shower cubicle is compact. Visit the night market in Palau (8 till midnight) and take a boat trip from there round the islands, but Santa Teresa di Gallura is a more picturesque town only half an hour away for a day out.

Owner's Response: Thanks for kind words on the house. You are all right about the shower, we had already planned to change it as soon as possible. I apologise for the barbecue, the cleaning lady, who prepared the house, forgot to put it in the patio. I would be very happy to put it if my guests had reminded me. Thanks a lot for the review.

About Paola Scuri

I was born and grew up in Rome and I live there most of the year, when I'm not in Sardinia or in Turin where my daughter live with her family. My husband and I have two boys and a girl and three grandchildren and they too love our sardinian house very much.

Paola Scuri purchased this apartment in 1975

Why Paola Scuri chose Porto Rafael

We spend our holidays in Baia di Nelson since we bought the house and there our children have grown, every summer enjoying the sun, the sea and the outdoors. My husband worked in the real estate company that had divided up the area of Porto Rafael and Punta Sardegna so we have had the chance to buy a little house and then expand it in the following years. Few years ago we decided to rent the dependence semi-detached of the house and so I can provide promptly to any needs of my guests but everyone can preserve his privacy.

What makes this apartment unique

Baia di Nelson consists of nine houses and the owners are the same as always, our children grew up togheter and even now that they are adults and have children too, is their place of the hearth. We try to help always each other, although sometimes we do not agree on everything!! We are a small community that comes from different cities of Italy.
