We live in the Cotswold with our grown up children. The area is full of wonderful places to visit, charming little villages as well as trendy up market towns.
Italian life is wonderful living life to the full !!.We were inspired with Sardinia when on holiday in 2004 and decided to search for the ideal villa for our family holiday home. We fell in love with the west coast and all the beautiful beaches.
Family life is very special,having fun and spending time together is priceless,
we hope families and friends enjoy our second home is in Sardinia as much as we do.
Leigh Warriner purchased this villa in 2005
We love the west coast with its wonderful beaches and very relaxed way of life. It is very accessible from the 3 Major airports, Algerho being the closest. After viewing several properties we came across Il Frutetto, in total need of renovation but a good location, 15 minutes from the coast and busy towns offering good restaurants, culture, bars and night clubs.
Although we had lots of work to renovate it, we designed the villa
to suit couples or large families/friends.
We fell in love with the terrace and the original outdoor table and have updated it with tiles and modern finishes and built a wooden pagoda so the vines and roses still grow over and give lots of shade.
The villa has the best of both worlds, enjoying the coast, towns and villages but coming home to the calm and tranquil setting.
The stars and silence at night are amazing and not forgetting the pool for a last minute dip, the garden has wonderful lighting at night.
In the same hamlet a church, tennis courts, park, restaurant , local spring water and stunning water falls.
The villa is large enough to sleep 9 people. The large garden is secure for children with plenty of space for them to play. The swimming pool is a great size 8 meters x 4 meters with a good size patio around

We were pleased to find the villa very well equiped, the interiors beautiful and contempory.
The people in the Agritorism (just next door) welcomed us with a glass of wine, the food
was traditional italian cooking. If you want to eat there you need to book in advance
it was great not to have to cook.
The villa was an excellent location for exploring the west coast and visiting some of the local villages, where all the locals like to stop and chat.(italian only)
Although we are not BBQ people, we did enjoy eating outside on the big outdoor table,
very romantic if you are on your own.
We would recommend the villa and wouold be an excellent place for a large family/group to stay.
Just got back from our stay at this Villa in Sardinia and wanted to pass on our comments to anyone thinking of staying here.
The Villa although split into two buildings was ideal for our holiday especially as we were two families together and split ourselves between the two villas. Both Villas were very clean, spacious and well equipped for our stay with modern appliances and comfy beds. The pool area was perfect for the children to cool off and splash around in and their was plenty of sun lounging furniture for the lazier adults. The badminton net was a nice addition as well as a couple of board games for the children when they needed to cool off. The large table became a special favorite for eating and chatting during our evening meals
The area surrounding the Villa is stunning. From the walking distance of the local Church and park of St Anticio to the local towns of Sagama and Tinnura and the backdrop of the mountains the setting is beautiful. Bosa is a lovely town with several nice places to eat and drink and to sit around the main square (Sardinians like watching the world go by) The beaches of Bosa Marina and around Cape Manu (Both within a 35 minute drive) are stunning and good seas for children to swim in with warm waters and clear seas. Also for anyone who has not been before Sardinian people are very friendly and accommodating.
You will definitely need a car to stay and explore the island. We hired a car from Alghero airport and is just over an hour although the windy roads take a little getting used to after the straight roads of the UK!
We will definitely think about returning to this Villa over the next few years and would recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting this magical island. (The pictures do not give justice to the Villa and surrounding area)
Our three teenage children stayed in the second house while we stayed in the main villa. We were all very comfortable in the spacious rooms. The house was spotless and well cared-for. The pool and garden were lovely. Lots of fruit trees for those lucky enough to be there at the right time! We loved how peaceful the setting was, on a very quiet road and with no light pollution of any kind.
We found lots to do and see nearby, from bronze age nuraghic sites to gorgeous beaches to great food. Admittedly we spent a bit of time in the car every day, but obviously this is the price to pay for being away from the crowds.
House, garden and pool were all beautifully maintained. The owner was very helpful and friendly.
Our teenage children were stunned to be without wifi but we were perfectly happy for them to be away from it!
We enjoyed our holiday and particularly appreciated the pleasant garden and pool area as we spent a lot of time there. The surroundings are ideal if you want to relax and enjoy the sunshine. The pool was well used for cooling down and for games of volley ball. We also managed these on dry land using the net which is also in the garden.
We found the agent and the owner most responsive and helpful. The villa is very well equipped and the outdoor dining area is great for a family group. The meal at the local agriturrissimo, just 10 minutes walk away was an amazing gastronomic experience- we loved it and went there twice. Some of our party spent days on the beach and enjoyed the quiet beaches within easy reach.
We would consider returning to the villa as a family group as it worked so well for us. One small suggestion - we would have liked cushions for the sunbeds.
Thank you for a lovely holiday .
There are only a few homes nearby and a fairly busy church but apart from the that you are pretty much on your own. Nearest village is about a 10 minute drive and the large town/city of Bosa is just 25 minutes away. Stunning scenery and lots to do on your doorstep and great food. The house is lovely and actually consists of two houses. A single bedroom house with large lounge and kitchen and the second house has three bedrooms and bathroom. A large, lovely swimming pool and large garden add to the enjoyment. Sunday lunch next door at the farm (Agriturismo) was an amazing experience. Highly recommended and will certainly be going back.
We stayed at the holiday home for 2 weeks and it was a great set up.
There are actually 2 homes on the same property which worked really well for us as 2 families - 5 kids and 4 adults.
The pool and outside area was fantastic - the kids were entertained and we ate out for every meal every day we were there.
Francesco and Simona were really helpful and Leigh responded quickly to any emails or questions we had.
Hire a car when you stay - Scano di Montiferro is 10 mins drive and really good for fresh bread in the morning (get there before 7:15am) and the nearest town Bosa is 30 mins drive with Euro Spin and Super Pan supermarkets for all other groceries.
Beaches and countryside were beautiful and the seafood and restaurants were great.
I'd definitely recommend a holiday at il Frutetto in Sardegna.
Just arrived back from this villa where we stayed for a week with a group of friends. The location was ideal for exploring the West Coast Beaches - our favorite being Bosa Marina.
The villa was clean and well equipped. The garden was family friendly and had a very relaxing ambiance. We enjoyed several BBQ's in the alfresco dining area, which was the perfect way to end a long day exploring the local beaches. The outside dining area was so relaxing and definitely a high light of the villa. The house was spacious enough for our group, and the use of two bathrooms made getting ready for days out a lot quicker! Although the villa isn't air conditioned the mosquito nets on the windows created plenty of breeze when open at night.
We found friendly bars in Scano Di Montiferro, as well as a pizza takeaway which was enjoyed by us all with a few beers back at the villa!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this villa and would definitely recommend for people who want a peaceful, relaxing stay but with plenty to do and explore a short drive away. We hope to return again next year!
