Apartment in Porto Rotondo, Costa Smeralda, North Coast, Sardinia, Italy - Peaceful Setting On The Beautiful Costa Smeralda

This family apartment is located in a private residence, just a few minutes from the famous Porto Rotondo, and only 20 minutes from Olbia Airport. This is a unique apartment on the Costa Smeralda, away from traffic and crowds and with all the facilities that allow for total relaxation. The apartment is surrounded by Mediterranean trees and plants, with a pool, private beach and tennis courts right on your doorstep. The spacious 80m² apartment is in excellent condition and tastefully decorated by the owners to combine English and Italian influences.

About Neil Wood

Neil and Sarah Wood, the owners, fell in love with Sardinia over 10 years ago when holidaying on the Costa Smeralda and staying in an apartment in the same residence. They jumped at the opportunity to purchase an apartment and build their own bit of home in Sardinia. Neil, an engineer, has designed many of the units in the department, whilst Sarah, a designer, is responsible for the welcoming interior. They continue to enjoy the apartment with their family and friends, visiting regularly for some warmth and relaxation.

Neil Wood purchased this apartment in 2004

Guestbook comments from the owner

‘We had such a relaxing holiday in your apartment. Everything we needed was there and more! We had planned to explore the surrounding area, but each day we found it hard to tear ourselves away from the beautiful pool and beach area. We enjoyed a glass of wine (or two!) on the balcony in the evenings as the sun was setting – such a relaxing break from our hectic lives in London.’ Alice and Tom, June 2012



‘We had always wanted to visit the Costa Smeralda and we were not disappointed! It really is beautiful and your apartment was so luxurious. The children are already asking to go back next year! It was lovely to have a choice of the beach and pool, without having to get in the car – particularly convenient with small children.’ Sue and family, September 2012

A perfect late-summer break

  • 5 of 5

I was lucky enough to stay in this fantastic apartment in Porto Rotundo at the end of last summer. It's spacious, well equipped, airy and has a large balcony, plus it's only a short walk from the beautiful pool. Sardinia is a traditional Mediterranean island with gorgeous beaches, hidden coves, bustling villages and superb restaurants, all of which are within easy reach from the apartment complex (which is suitable for all ages, budgets and tastes). We have already booked another holiday in the same accommodation for 2015.

Distances:

Further Details:

Porto Rotondo is situated on a peninsular at the southern end of the Costa Smeralda. Porto Rotondo itself is cosy with shops and restaurants spread around the port area and in the streets which radiate back toward the main road which runs along each branch of the headlands. From higher points around Porto Rotondo the amazing white Isola di Tavolara is visible - a giant flat-topped island 16km away rising 600m out of the sea and dominating the view. The climate is typically Mediterranean. The flowers and trees within our apartment complex are typical to the area but they flourish with the automated watering system. There are expert local seamen available to give advice or to take visitors on trips sightseeing or fishing. Larger tour boats run daily trips around the La Maddelena Archipelago and cruise boats also anchor in the bays to enjoy the amazing scenery. Within this Archipelago is the beautiful island of Caprera, famous as the place to which Giuseppe Garibaldi retired in the 19th Century and littered with secluded coves and beaches.
