Our Villa Calicanto is something special. It is our secret little paradise on the beautiful island we live in, Sardinia: we would like it to be a special place for you, too. Welcome to a kind home with a green heart, a few steps from the bluest sea!

The space
Villa Calicanto is the first and only ecologically and sustainably built home rented in Sardinia, which we designed and lived in with so much love and care. As family we share some of our happiest memories there; with this spirit we open our beautiful home with an eco-conscious heart to like-minded (and like-hearted ;-) ) guests! You will rest in the magical light, calm and comfort of a luxurious house which respects you and the amazing Mediterranean environment around you: the nearby Cannesisa beach with its crystalline, turquoise water, the different greens of the scrub in the coast, the clean breeze coming from southern Sardinia.

Our Villa SUD offers all the comforts of home in a intimate, fully furnished accommodation on the coast. It opens on the pool side: located on the right side of the complex, its veranda and balcony opens onto the pool, next to a 400 year old olive tree. With the other villas, it shares the pool, the garden and the gazebo, but it keeps its own independence and privacy.

On the ground floor, the open living room/kitchen is fully equipped with a small fridge with mini-freezer, a microwave, 4 gas stoves and all the necessary utensils to cook (if you are an amateur chef you will recognize our special veggie knife which prevents oxidation!). A barbecue is available in the garden, do dine en plein air under the stars of Torre, and I can swear that at night it converts everyone in a seriously serial griller. On the upper floor you will find the two bedrooms (the first with a double bed and a balcony overlooking the pool, and the second, smaller one with two twin beds), each for two people maximum. Each floor has its own full bathroom with a comfortable shower. A further shower is next to the pool, to get ready to jump into the water!

Our Villa is perfect for couples, groups of friends and families. We accommodate up to 4 adults (or two adults and two children) but it is possible to accommodate a 5th guest if s/he is a child under the age of 3: for them we have a dedicated baby cot and a high chair.

Villa Calicanto is located in Torre delle Stelle, at about 35 minutes from Cagliari. Being on the coast gives you also the possibility to swim, surf, fish or simply read a book and get golden in some of the most beautiful shores in Sardinia (and in the world!) within a 15-30 minute drive; to explore the different facets of the urban life in Cagliari; to hike in the near Settefratelli Reserve; or indulge in the simple luxury of relaxing at home, in a place that nurturs your spirit and your body.

Guest access
Our gentle, peaceful place is part of a unique, charming private 4-villas eco-residence, Villa Calicanto, built in the utmost respect and beauty. Our Villa SUD is one of our 4 villas in the complex: it is one of the two villas which are in front of the pool. The residence has in fact a shared pool and is nested in a shared green lawn with olive trees. There is maximum flexibility with the use of the shared common space with the other villas and their guests, while at the same time each villa has its own independence and privacy. The residence is 350 m far from Cannesisa beach; you can enjoy walking everyday to the seaside, and breath the fresh, deep salty air of the mediterranean sea within 5 minutes.

Other things to note
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY OUR NOTES AND ADVICE:

Two towels per guest (a large one and a medium-small one) are provided, together with one pool towel per guests. We also provide bedsheets and bedcover, and the whole house will be ready to be lived in at your arrival. We offer free Wi-Fi all over the complex.

Villa Calicanto is our home: it is a place we love so much and we expect our guests to respect it and the labour of love that is behind it.
At Villa Calicanto we are committed to living in a truly sustainable and beautiful way. Sustainability at Villa Calicanto means a kinder way of life which makes your holiday exceptionally comfortable as well as light on the island that welcomes you, Sardinia. It also means to be respectful of other guests, their peace and Holiday, and of the nature we live in. We do our best to continually improve our practices and encourage our guests to do the same.

•Regularly recycle garbage and if possible buy goods with minimum and/or recyclable packaging.
•Reduce car traffic: enjoy the local coast and its amenities, walk whenever possible (sun and distances permitting!) and drive preferably off peak time.
•Stay Local, Eat Local, Buy Local, See Local: explore Southern Sardinia's possibilities - we will be happy to give you advice!
•Relax & switch off – enjoy living lightly: turn off any electric units when you are not home; use the advantages of the passive house - for instance, close the curtains to keep the temperature inside, and open them to let the natural warmth and light in; try reducing the use of heating and air conditioning, as the quality of walls and insulation will naturally form an efficient barrier which cools down or warms up all interiors quickly and releases very slowly; turn off some lights and the TV and make yourself cozy with a book - or sit in the balcony or in the veranda, just looking at the stars (from which Torre delle Stelle takes its name!); use the washing machine and the dishwasher when fully loaded, and prefer the ecological settings and programs on both devices; enjoy showers and use fresh water sensibly and responsibly; use appropriately the double flush button; opt for ecological mono-doses of detergents whenever possible.

ABOUT THE CAUTIONARY DEPOSIT

We think that a sustainable life passes through leaving the place as we found it: in our home this implies among other things doing a correct garbage recycling and leaving the house clean, tidy and in good conditions. We ask upon arrival 300 euro in cash as cautionary deposit: this sum will be entirely returned to the guests after the satisfactory final check of the Villa, provided the following provisions are met:

•No damage is done to property or its contents.
•The property and the furnishings, kitchen equipment, crockery, glasses, barbecue, stoves, bedding and towels and all textiles are kept and left clean and in good condition: nothing is lost, left dirty, damaged.
•No damage is done to the walls, doors or windows of the Property
•Nothing is done that may be reasonably considered to cause a nuisance or annoyance to the owners, to the other guests in the residence, and/or to any other occupier of adjoining or neighboring properties.
•No illegal activity, pets or collection of rents or services is done during the stay.
•No extra people are staying in the Property than the ones expressly authorised and confirmed by the owners and other residents.
•No significant change happens in the makeup of the group during the stay in the Property.
•All debris, rubbish and discards are placed and regularly recycled for collection during the stay in the dedicated rubbish bins and bags outdoors and separated according to their categories following the given explanations upon arrival.
•All dishes and kitchen tools used are placed in the dishwasher and cleaned: the dishwasher and its filters are kept clean.
•All keys are left on the kitchen table and unit is left locked.
•All charges accrued during the stay are paid prior to arrival.
•No belated arrival and/or departure happen and the agreed check-in and check-out times are respected. If the arrival is belated, notice of such delay is immediately communicated to the owner.
•Nothing other than reasonable amounts of ecological/biodegradable toilet paper is flushed. The water recycling system is very effective; however, it will clog up if improper material is flushed. No improper products should be flushed at anytime: dedicated bags are provided.

If such provisions are not met, the damage(s) and losses will be estimated and the cautionary deposit will not be returned in part or fully. For instance, for leaving garbage in the house and/or in the bin area incorrectly recycled and/or in large quantity the fine we charge 50 euro. Samely, for leaving the kitchen and/or dishes and/or the barbecue dirty and unclean we charge 75 euro.

FINAL NOTES:
We recommend our guests to take travel insurance for the trip to ensure that each member of the group is covered by comprehensive travel insurance (including cancellation, flight delays, loss, theft and damage to baggage and other property) and health insurance (including evacuation and repatriation coverage).

Our guests take all necessary steps to safeguard their personal property and safety. No liability to our guests is accepted in respect of damage to, disappearance, theft or loss of such property and of your own person (as well as minors).

Location

Torre Delle Stelle (Maracalagonis), Sardegna, Italy

Torre delle Stelle is now a quiet green village of summer houses for Sardinian residents and some occasional VIPs enamored of its rocky hills embracing the green and blue coast, but its origins can be traced to Phoenicians and Romans who used its two beaches (Cann'e Sisa and Genn'e mari) as ports.

Apart from our beautiful swimming pool, Torre delle Stelle has currently a few other amenities :-) The closest beach, Cann'e Sisa, is within 5 minutes walk (350 mt), while the other beach in Torre, Gennemari, is at 1.5 km from our villa; it's about 8 minutes by car, and some more by bike or by walk, and it is also nice.

Gennemari is next to our closest supermarket, which - although relatively small - has an excellent range of fresh food and all sorts of selected delicious, fresh Sardinian specialities. Foodies will be also happy to know that in less than five minutes they can find an excellent pizza, prepared according to the Neapolitan tradition.

We always recommend to explore further, and definitely Torre is an ideal starting point to move around the area. For some of the most beautiful beaches in Sardinia and in the world (like Villasimius, Mari Pintau, Costa Rei, Cala Pira) 15-30 minutes by car from the Villa will be enough to enjoy cristalline waters and soft sandy beaches - sometimes all by yourself! If a bigger city is what you look for, then Cagliari offers an excellent mix of mediterranean views and history dotted with lively cafes and markets (in particular the fish market) only 30 minutes away.

Ciao! Born in Sardinia and raised on a steady diet of pecorino cheese, poems and curiosity, I left my island to study and live on other islands and cities of water - always to come back at some point. Such is the enchantement of this land... worry not, it will put a spell on you too! Villa Calicanto is my family summer house, home to wonderful moments of peace and happiness: it is a place I cherish in my heart and which I would like you too to call home.
