My cosy cottage apartment set in a quiet mountain village above Iglesias in a tranquil village called San Benedetto perfect for your getaway. Where you will only hear the sound of birds & sheep. With its 50cm walls to keep you cool in the summer, parking outside, beaches close by. If you like outdoor adventure and exploring you will love this place as its perfect for trekking, rock climbing, mountain biking. 2 bikes are available. With beautiful beaches close. Regular bus service to Iglesias.

The space
What makes this apt unique from others is it is around 150 years old and has been restored to its former glory. With plenty of space for 4 persons, but is better suited for 2, with one bedroom, one bathroom, utility room with washing machine, small but quaint kitchen fully equipped, large living room with self feed wood burner for the winter months, air con if required ( optional ) portable BBQ, parking, wood beamed ceiling, giving it a real cosy feel.

Guest access
From the front door you have access to some of the best trekking and mountain bike paths in SARDINIA and close by also rock climbing at Domusnovas at the GROTTE DI SAN GIOVANNI Where you should find maps etc and info to what is going on in the area. Access to beaches no problem this is one of the main points with beaches north and south, the closest being only 15 mins drive but there are many more. 60 mts from the door starts the park of Marganai this is a protected area with beautiful walks, picnic and BBQ areas, floral gardens, museum of mining minerals, set in one of the oldest natural oak forests in Europe. There are many paths on the mountain and all marked so you won't get lost, some reaching a height of over 3,000. Feet with the most spectacular views. Access to IGLESIAS is easy being just 8 klms so takes less than 10 minutes, where you will find a good variety of shop's and supermarkets, bar's, restaurants, etc. Cagliari airport is about 45 mins drive.
There are two bikes available free to use.

Other things to note
Most people are amazed at the peace and quiet that you find in San Benedetto,and how easy it is to reach some of the best beaches in the south of Sardinia. We also have a portable air con machine if required, not included in the price as you will not need it as the property stays cool inside, so its there if required at extra cost.
Also now we have fitted a self feed wood burner for the winter trekkers.
Lunch and dinner can be arranged in advance.

Iglesias, Sardinia, Italy

I like this village mainly for its peace and quiet and the ease of getting around with access to all the beaches/mountains in both directions,also parking just outside makes this the perfect retreat. And after all day on a secluded beach the fresh mountain air is a treat.

Hello my name is Stephen and i used to live in Bristol UK. Until i came to Sardinia on holiday, then made a decision to retire here in Iglesias. Now to make ends meet I have my own apartment / Trekking cottage apartment San Benedetto / plus i look after / Other holiday homes. / these are home's owned by other people but don't have time to rent. This is a great way to meet people which i enjoy very much and have great a passion for. I will be there to check you in etc and my phone is always on in case of problems. Or you will always be able to reach me on social networks. The most important thing for me and for you has to be communication, to be in contact before and during the holiday.

During your stay
Most things can be arranged, all one has to do is ask, but here are some examples.
Sailing boat excursion with food and wine on board, this is an all day trip and not to be missed.
Trekking in the mountains or along the coast, but mainly in the lower seasons, as if I am not to busy I would have no problem to accompany you.
The same for mountain biking but there will be a charge for bike hire from the bike shop.
Wine tasting can be arranged in a local vineyard.
