About Adrienne Cooke
We are a working couple in our late 50's, and really enjoy being here to wind down and recharge our batteries, the locals are so friendly and willing to help, we have been here since 2004 and feel part of Sardinia. Now we have become grandparents so can't wait to take him swimming on the beach with the rest of the families.
Adrienne Cooke purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Adrienne Cooke chose Portobello
Fantastic sea views and swimming, watching the yachts and fishing boats sail past, this private estate is very well established and if you want company the bar and restaurants at the centre are very well managed, supermarket open all year round. But if you want to be on your own nobody comes and bothers you, my house is on the West end of the Estate and benefits from the sun going down over the Mediterranean, the garden is not manicured or enclosed so allows nature to enjoy it with two resident tortoises in the shrubbery they love chopped up apple and lettuce, the kitchen is narrow and small which seems to be normal for most of the houses unless recently updated.
What makes this Villa unique
The choice of two airports, Olbia which is one and half hours away,Alghero about two hours away you would definitely need a car, and stop at one of the passing supermarkets on the way to the house is a good idea, a lot of historic places to visit.

Secluded villa situated on rocky coastline
Nicely designed split level layout with views of the coast and Corsica beyond. Well equipped villa with three bedrooms, each with a bath/shower room. Secluded and private terraces are ideal for enjoying Sardinian sunshine and sunsets. Short drive takes you to some fantastic sandy beaches. Handy little shop and nice restaurant located within this gated community. Owner is very friendly and always happy to assist with enquiries, etc. Would definitely return!
Wonderful villa in spectacular setting
We have stayed at this villa several times and we love it. The location is spectacular, with stunning views across the Mediterranean to Corsica. Supper on the terrace, watching the sun sink into the sea is one of our greatest pleasures. It is incredibly peaceful here and we find it the perfect place to unwind with family and friends. The layout of the villa is great if you are sharing with friends as the bedrooms (with en-suite bathrooms) are separated by the large living room. The villa's many terraces also mean that you can always find a sunny or if you prefer shady spot. Portobello itself is very secluded and chic with a great restaurant and bar. And the nearby beaches are, in our opinion, some of the most beautiful in the world with their crystal-clear aquamarine waters.
This is a pretty villa in a wonderful location with amazing views of the Sardinian coastline. There is a large and comfortable sitting and dining area inside and outdoors there are terraces on three sides as well as the roof so you can always find a spot in the sun or the shade to relax. The outside shower was an unexpected joy!
A short walk along shrub-bordered paths takes you to a sandy beach or to the well-stocked shop and friendly bar and restaurant. We had a lovely holiday and would certainly hope to return.
What I love most about this beautiful house is the location - very secluded, a few minutes walk from the restaurant & shop and a stones throw from the sea - you wake up in the morning to the gentle sound of the waves lapping against the shore. Even in high Summer you can find a secluded spot by the sea - but if you mood is more lively the resort centre is nearby for the lovely bar, restaurant, tennis, etc.
The house itself if nicely presented and the way it is designed means you can find a sunny - or shady - terrace all day. Recommended.
We have stayed at this villa a number of times the location is great,it's very quiet with beautiful views and the restaurant on site serves delicious food. Good place to go with friends and have a relaxing time in a very nice comfortable villa
A real getaway.
We had a wonderful time in sardinia. The villa was perfect..comfortable and really user friendly. It was really peaceful with such gorgeous views and only a few minutes walk from a small beach cove where the water was beautifully clear. The shop again was a minute or two walk and all the basics were stocked. So we didn't have to drive anywhere if we didn't feel like it....heaven. We found wi fi in the centre where we often stopped for a morning coffee. It was great for everyone to have UK TV for when we wanted to have a bit of downtime. A great holiday and definitely a place to go back to.
