A wonderful villa with spectacular views. Lorenzo left plenty of information in the villa for us and was very quick to respond to any questions we had. We had a nice little welcome basket of essentials when we arrived and even some small hotel-sized toiletries. As others have warned, if you aren't used to narrow streets don't rent a large car. Also if you can. Is it the Auchan supermarkets in Olbia or Sassari as they have a much better selection than any of the local ones.
To cut a long story short: It was amazing!
The photos of the villa don´t do justice to the original. The view is awesome and more then words can say.
The house itself is traditionally built but aesthetically completed with a stylish interior and well-tended. The gardener who came every morning is a really nice guy and keeps the property in good nick. The housekeeper with her warm personality fell in love with our baby child so she played with him every day when she arrived and spent us a a few minutes rest. Having said that she did a really good job and was available in all interests. So we really enjoyed our stay and can recommend the villa with all our hearts.
Finally thank you very much to Lorenzo for always being available to answer any questions and and for being such a terrific host.
We had a wonderful week. The housekeeper was not only extremely nice but very helpful and flexible to organize breakfast and dinners if needed.
The house has a magnificent location and although is not a modern house, is very comfortable and stylish furnished.
It's a comfortable house for a big group. We were in 11 and everyone could find privacy.
The host was not there but was always available and attentive.
We couldn't have better vacation!
We will go back for sure.
Top View Villa is fantastic. The views from the villa are incredible - in all directions. There is a roof top patio from which you can see Corsica in one direction and the island of Maddelana in the other. The kitchen is fantastic; very modern with lots of equipment - perfect if you like to congregate in the kitchen, cook, and drink wine. The villa was immaculately kept; very clean. This place provides everything you need for a relaxing, beautiful vacation. On top of that, the owners are very helpful; whatever we needed, they tried to help.
The place was just perfect (exactly like on the pictures), with an amazing view, a very beautiful well looked after garden and a very nicely furnished tasteful interior, with obvious love for details. The house was very clean and having the housekeeper visiting every day helped that it stayed that way.
It is well suited to be rented with a couple of people, as the structure of the house leaves everyone a lot of space.There is something very special to this place, a serenity seldom found. I can highly recommend it!
Lorenzo has been an excellent host- easy to contact and very kind.
This villa is truly magical. It was so perfect for our family (4 couples and 2 children), plenty of room for everyone. The house is very well appointed, clean and stunning views! Lorenzo was perfect to deal with, he organised many extra things for us, acted as a translator when needed and was always quick and helpful. I cannot recommend this villa any higher, we really hope to return one day.
Our stay at Lorenzo's house in Porto Rafael was amazing. Having been to Porto Rafael several times in the past, I can say that this house has one of the most amazing locations, when it comes to view. The interior is beautiful and everything is perfectly clean. Lorenzo was an excellent host and we had no problems what so ever. The pictures don't really do this house and its garden (and pool) justice. We as a family definitely recommend staying in Lorenzo's house.
