the guests can use whatever they find in the house except for something which is stored in the white cupboard. you'll find salt, pepper and any other spice for the cooking, table cloth, linen and towels.
Interaction with Guests
the guests can send me messages if I'm abroad or call me directly if I'm in Italy, i usually tell them where I'm for work.
Valeria, the landlady is usually available to solve any problem it may arise.
the area is vey peaceful, no crime, just relax, no traffic, no noise. very few people live there
unfortunately there are bno means of transport available for this area
Other Things to Note
Water at home is provided by a well that during the summer is very lazy, so I can provide my guests for 5000 liters of water(which I buy for 80 euros), they usually are enough for 4 people for more than a week, if the same guest wastes more than that ammount he must buy water himself calling the truck. so, please, don't waste water. Don't let it run unusefully. turn the taps off while using the soap or while having a shower, use plastic paper and glasses.
the containers for the plastic and paper are under the washbasin, in the kitchen, we have waste containers to throw them away in Tiriddo'.
Wet waste: throw them away in a brown plastic waste which is in the garden they come and collect it on tuesdays, thurdays and on Saturdays so bring it down, where you park on those days.
The main switch is on the left handside of the main entrance in case of no reset, there's a little grey box on the external wall of my house, where you park the car( the key to open it are in a small wooden box next to the tv)
the gas is provided by gas cylinders which are in a small cellar under the stairs, there are always two, the second is spare, so you won't run out of gas.
the gas is both for the stove and hot water so in case it runs cold it may be the gas running out
The house you're staying in is "my house" not a mere place to rent, so please respect it and the objects which are in Which are dear memories for me.
it's forbidden to smoke inside, plesea do not throw cigarettes in the plants of my garden
pets are allowed if they small and they behave well.
We recently stayed at Alessandra's cottage for a long weekend and had a wonderful time.
If you are looking for a secluded, quiet getaway then I would recommend staying here.
The cottage is off the beaten track but that was perfect for us and with directions, the cottage is very easy to find and proved to be a great base for us on our break.
Despite a its rural location, beautiful beaches, great restaurants and Olbia town are not far away by car. It's a great location to base yourself from, to explore.
The cottage is charming and full of character with gardens full of flowers . The rural locations means it boasts beautiful views across the mountains and across the sea. We loved this!
Alessandra is a very conscientious host. Quick to respond to questions or queries and helpful with local tips and suggestions. Alessandra is super friendly and nothing seemed to much trouble, which was perfect considering I ask a lot of questions!
If you are looking for accommodation that's a not too far from the crowd, the beaches, shops and bars but offers you charm, seclusion and comfort, I throughly recommend staying here.
It was our first time in Sardinia and we loved it, we hope to return and if we do, we'd happily come back to this cottage (we liked it a lot).
Wir waren für fünf Tage bei Alessandra und es war einfach wunderbar. Das Haus ist so schön wie auf den Bildern und mit allem was man braucht ausgestattet. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden gerne einmal wiederkommen.
Before the holiday Alessandra was always very quick to respond to my questions and queries by text/ email. The host provided lots of useful info prior to our arrival although finding the house in the village wasn't very easy without the help of Valeria and another neighbour who came out to guide us because we'd said by text when we were likely to arrive. (It's very much last house up a steep track which is picked up to the right, once you've gone through most of the village). Shopping (food/bottled water) on the way from the airport to the house (Olbia airport) was relatively straightforward. The house itself has a brilliantly stocked kitchen, slightly confusing rubbish/ recycling arrangements and there was an unfortunate breakage (broken loo seat which had not been fixed) but overall the views were fantastic, cold shower (outdoor) great for hot afternoons/ refreshing starts and the online pictures we found to be very accurate to what is there. It was nice to be able to watch cable, eat on the terrace, watch DVDs we took and generally chill out. The area is beautifully quiet whilst also being very close to lots of good small shopping centre, excellent beaches and interesting sites (ancient archeology, museums and fun ice cream parlours, big rocks, etc!) overall I would love to return- there's so much more to explore and the price of the accommodation was very reasonable considering what we had available. Alessandra said as we were leaving she plans to head to the house this week to fix the things we flagged as broken. Great job, thank you greatly
Alessandras home was the perfect start for our sardinia trip. In front the view above the coast, behind deserted nature. A 15 minutes trip to the most beautifully beaches ... we highly recommend this cosy place!
Wir waren 14 Tage auf Sardinien unterwegs und Alessandras Haus war unsere letzte von 3 Stationen. 5 Tage durften wir dort verbringen und haben diese Zeit sehr genossen. Das sehr schöne, gemütliche und detailverliebt eingerichtete Haus hat ein wunderbares Panorama. Man schaut weit in die Landschaft bis zur Küste. Direkt vom Haus kann man auf Entdeckungstour gehen und kleine Wanderungen unternehmen. Die Ruhe war sehr erholsam – genau das Richtige um sich zurückzuziehen und zu entspannen. Gleichzeitig sind Ausflugsziele, Strände, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurants, ohne Probleme und schnell, mit dem Auto zu erreichen.
Alessandras Haus liegt tatsächlich ganz oben und ist das letzte Haus
an der Strasse – also, auch noch die letzte Steigung hinauf fahren.
Die Kommunikation mit Alessandra verlief ohne Probleme und wir hatten mit Valeria (Hausverwalterin) einen Ansprechpartner vor Ort. Valeria spricht kein oder wenig Englisch aber das war überhaupt kein Problem. Einige Anmerkungen hatten wir uns laienhaft auf italienisch übersetzt :)
Ansonsten ist Alessandra auch per Telefon/SmS erreichbar.
Fazit: Sehr empfehlenswert! Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit.
We stayed in Alessandra's house for the second time and will certainly return a third time next year - I think this statement illustrates best how much we felt at home again. We can fully agree to all positive remarks that other visitors already made, no need to repeat the obvious, this location provides a superb recreation factor! Thank you Alessandra and Valeria!
Die Unterkunft war genauso wie sie beschrieben wurde. Es hat uns sehr gut gefallen und wir haben uns dort wohlgefühlt. Wir hatten direkt vor Ort einen Ansprechpartner und dieser war auch SOFORT zur Stelle wenn wir Fragen oder kleine Probleme hatten. Die Wohnung war sauber und gut ausgestattet. Von der Terrasse aus hat man einen wunderbaren Blick ins Tal und zur Küste hin aber auch genauso in die unberührte Natur zu den Schafen. Alles in allem ein wunderschöner Urlaub und traumhafte Strände. Die Lage des Ortes bietet einen guten Ausgangspunkt für den Norden und den kompletten Osten der Insel zu erkunden. Einfach herrlich und wir kommen wieder .................................
