Lovely apartment in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a brilliant week in Maristella. The owner, Rita, was extremely helpful before and after our booking. She met us at the apartment and was so friendly and welcoming.

The apartment was very well equipped with everything you could possibly need and was very clean and spacious. We made use of the BBQ at the apartment and also enjoyed having our own private balcony.

We used the 2 bikes at the apartment quite a few times as there is a great cycle path not too far from Maristella which you can then ride all the way to Alghero. We hired a car too so had the option of both which I would recommend.

The location is great as Maristella is very quiet but you are not far from Alghero, various beaches and National Parks. We enjoyed the Butterfly Park very much which is not far in the car. We also liked Le Prigionette park where we saw wild deer, horses and donkeys which you can drive partly round, cycle or hike. The nearest beach is just across the main road from the apartment but we also liked the beach at Porticciolo.

Thank you so much Rita for a fantastic holiday and for your kind hospitality! We hope to return again!

Great place for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at Rita's place. She was very nice and attentive to her guests' needs. Rita had provided lots of really useful information in the house about things to see and do, and the good places to eat.

The flat is situated in a quiet area, spacious and tastefully decorated with a personal touch, two balconies (one of them with a nice see view) and a little terrace. The kitchen is well equipped and everything is clean.

Locally, the authentic restaurant (Il Galleone) pizzeria at the bottom of the road is superb - the best see food and pizza we had in the whole holiday, at the cheapest price.

The area is beautiful with many locals, nice beaches (we loved the beaches of Lazzaretto, le Bombarde and Porto Ferro) and close to Neptune's grotta. A small supermarket is also available in the area. To beautiful Alghero it's just a short ride by car. We really enjoyed this area because it feels like being a local, not a tourist and we would definitely recommend renting a car.

We definitely recommend the place. Thank you Rita, we had a great time in your house!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your generous review and the lovely description of my place. I am always very pleased when my guests appreciate the place as much as I do and you really caught the very essence of Maristella : a holiday resort with a local community living nearby. I hope you'll visit many countries around the world but I also hope you'll visit Sardinia and will stay in my house again. My best wishes . Rita

Formidables Vacances

Nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances dans l'appartement de Rita. Tout était parfait, l'environnement très calme .La situation de l'appartement proche de merveilleuses plages et surtout la disponibilité et la très grande gentillesse de Rita qui rend le séjour très agréable . Nous essaierons de revenir l'an prochain et nous recommandons vivement cette location . Rita parle très bien le français et cela est également très appréciable.

Très bien/very nice

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons particulièrement apprécié l'accueil chaleureux de Rita, sa maison à 2 niveaux, mitoyenne, calme et fraiche, son aménagement personnalisé, notamment avec de beaux livres sur l'histoire de la Sardaigne.

La vue du balcon de la chambre est très belle.

La circulation vers Alghero est très dense à la sortie des plages en fin d'après midi. Prévoir une organisation en fonction du traffic.

Situation dans un parc naturel protégé.

Owner's Response: Nous vous remercions pour votre généreux examen . Je suis désolé pour les problèmes avec le trafic . Oui , à Alghero Août est particulièrement difficile en ce qui concerne le trafic , trop de gens choisissent ce mois-ci pour leurs vacances . Je recommande toujours à mes clients s'ils peuvent choisir Juin ou Septembre . J'espère vous accueillir à nouveau dans une période plus calme . Les meilleurs voeux .

Wunderschöne Ferien

  • 5 of 5

Das Appartment entsprach genau den Bildern, alles war sehr gepflegt und liebevoll eingerichtet.

Es war alles da was man brauchte, sogar ein Bügelbrett und Bügeleisen.

Rita hat uns freundlich empfangen und es stand sogar eine Flasche Wein im Kühlschrank.

Die Umgebung war sehr idyllisch und ruhig, man konnte aber trotzdem sehr schnell die Stadt und den Strand erreichen.

Es gab einen kleinen Supermarkt ganz in der Nähe, der alles für den täglichen Bedarf hatte.

Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen.

Dear Rita,

thank you very much for a wonderful week.

Great place to recover

  • 5 of 5

We, a young couple, stayed at Rita's nice ltitle house for five days. It was the start of our two week stay in Sardinia and it was a great start! Maristella is a very quite area (we would definitly recommend to rent a car). We really enjoyed this area because it feels like being a local, not a tourist. It was a good starting point for many trips in the northeastern part of Sardinia. The house is fully equipment (washing machine etc.) and Rita is very helpful. The only thing we would recommend is to install a mosquito grid or something like this. Thank you Rita, we had a great time in your house!
