Why Julia Gilliot chose Olbia-Tempio

Portobello is a very pleasant and friendly community far from the crowds and summer traffic!

The natural beauty is breathtaking with the pink granit rock formation of Sardinia against the white cliffs of Bonifacio across the straits. The weather is always perfect with very little rain mostly in winter.

There is very little light pollution making stargazing phenomenal!

What makes this villa unique

The villa is child friendly.

Medical clinic on-site.

There are 6 granite steps to the villa which limits access for wheelchairs.

Perfect private Villa for Sardinian fun

  • 5 of 5

Villa Busetta is on the norht west coast of Sardinio in portobello which is a gated private community complex with 50-60 villas. It has 2 great beaches that are a nice 4 minute stroll from the villa with crystal clear waters. The villa is fully equipped on one level and it has a great feeling like you are in the middle of the Forrest with the trees and surrounding garden. You have nice sunset views from the verandas and it feels really cool as there is a nice sea breeze in the evening and afternoons. There are nice villages and county side restuarants that you can enjoy really traditional sardinian food and hospitality ( need a car to make the most of these) but the club complex and the restuarant which you can walk to from the villa are also great. The club is fantastic and it seems to be the focus point for the community with bands and dancing most evenings during our stay. It is very friendly to kids and you feel very secure in leaving them to run around in around the villa. Would highly recommend it if you are looking for a nice relaxing escape.

Magical escape with friends

  • 5 of 5

This place was the perfect escape for us and our friends - Everything you could want form a tranquil escape to Sardinia!

The villa was easy to find and extremely well equipped with everything either a large family or a good group of friends would need to relax and get away from it all. A perfect home from home, but with better weather and views to die for. Immaculate kept and very tastefully furnished!

Missing it already - Already booking up again for next year!
