About this listing
Cozy beach house, the front garden ends with the Cala Pira beach shore. White sand beach, near Villasimius.
Located on the beach of Cala Pira, nearby Villasimius. Nice little villa on the sea sand. Two bedrooms (1 double bed + 1 bedroom with 4 single beds), kitchen, 2 bathrooms, dining room with TV and fireplace (don't really need these in the summers...), outside shower, patio. Private garden and outside barbecue. Car parking in the back.
We normally rent the house on weekly basis from Sathurday to Sathurday. The price does not include the cost of cleaning the house. The house should be left clean for the next guest. If you want there is a cleaning lady that can come, ask Antonello Orrù (phone number hidden). You will need to reserve her a few days ahead, should not be more than 100 euros, ask her anyhow.
50 steps from the sea in one of the best beaches in Sardinia. 40 Km from Cagliari airport.
Best beach time from April to October. Beautiful surrondings, history and nature nearby.
Stores nearby: Costa Rei - 5 chilometers (several supermarkets, closed during the winter season) it's about 5 miles. Otherwise the town of Villasimius is 10 miles away.

Interaction with Guests
I'm available for any information you might need about the house, for suggestions of what to see and do around the beautiful island of Sardinia. (email hidden) my mobile is (phone number hidden)
The house is located in a small condominium of about another 150 houses.
The house next to ours belongs to my family, they might be around, ask eventually if you need help or information. My dad Paolo and mom speak good french and little english.
There is a bus stop right at the end of the dirt road that leads to the Cala Pira beach. It goes all the way to Villasimius and Cagliari. However the best way to get to Cala Pira is by car.
Other Things to Note
- water in Cala Pira is NON drinkable, it's good for cooking anything else, but drinking water should be bought at the local stores

We've got a message from Gianluca a few days before we got there, including hints on what to do in the area.
Description of location and house/instructions was very good.
Wonderful place directly on a wonderful beach. We loved to stay there. Perfect to enjoy greenish-blue water and really white sand, to have totally relaxed family-days.
The house is right on the beach. We enjoyed our staying there. Paolo and his family, neighbor and father of the owner , were very nice and helpful.
Wow! Cala Pira... what a place. The garden ends 10 metres from the sea, an amazing location. The house is in a private neighbourhood -a key is needed to enter the main gates. Very well-equipped (digital tv, dishwasher and washing machine included) and it really felt like home. Gianluca was very helpful before our trip and during our stay. We visited the house in May so there weren't lots of neighbours around and the beach was almost empty, but I believe July and August might be different. As with most places in Sardegna, you need a car to move around, and there is parking available at Gianluca's. Will definitely recommend this place, and try to come back there myself.
