Everything was nice at Franco's house. The house is as described and big enough for a family to stay there. You have everything you need to cook, washing machine, bbq, etc...
Communication with Franco via email went well. His mum welcomed us and gave us the keys and all the information necessary. A lovely person who also lives in Stintino.
Area is great with loads of restaurants. First beach 10 min walk from the house. La Pelosa, 20 min.
Only con of the house are the ants, but this is something you will probably get in any house in Sardinia as they are everywhere on the island.
Would definitely recommend this house!
We arrived very late at night /early in the morning and and Franco kindly arranged for us to get the keys. He had also sent a very detailed map so we were able to find the house despite darkness and empty streets. Was much appreciated... Also cool water in the fridge was not left unnoticed. Thank you. Neighbourhood perfectly ok.
We stayed and Franco's house for the second half of our northern Sardinia vacation. La Pelosa beach was incredible, despite how crowded it was. We did find it to be a bit farther walk than what is listed here (more like 25 minutes than 15), but it was okay for us; perhaps the 15 minute reference was to the start of the paid parking area (and where you can see the sea), but it was another 10 minutes until you got to La Pelosa beach. The cliffs were also nice and definitely recommended for viewing the sunset!
As for the house itself, we found it to be nice and accommodating, but felt it was a bit outdated and cluttered. The oven did not work, and neither did one of the burners. The boiler was not sufficient for supporting two consecutive hot showers. The outdoor shower, which looked very pleasant in the photo, unfortunately, did not have a temperature control and was very cold. The garden was certainly the best feature of the place, but we would have enjoyed it more if it had more comfortable outdoor furniture. We think Franco's place would be a great value for a family or larger group. The location is in a residential neighborhood and thus is very quite, and we liked it better than Stintino's city center. While there are no restaurants nearby, it's close enough that this wasn't a problem. Also the snack bars and pizzerias at the beach are convenient and affordable.
We interacted with Franco only by email and SMS, and found him very responsive and helpful. His aunt and mother met us there to give us the keys and were very pleasant!
Todo muy bien. La comunicación con Franco fue fluída y nos ayudó a resolver la llegada. La casa también bien, lo único es que la cocina y el baño necesitarían una actualización.
El jardín florido y fresco. A la barbacoa le faltaban los utensilios para su uso pero lo resolvimos.
Respecto al vecindario no tuvimos problema es una zona tranquila y segura.
El tema del reciclaje de residuos, está muy bien pero para los turistas es lioso. La casa solo contaba con recipientes grandes para la recojida selectiva pero dentro de casa no había un lugar adecuado para ello y fuera corres el riesgo de que te invadan las hormigas.
Lo mejor es la proximidad a la playa de la pelosa.
Good location near Pelosa beach and great cliffs and hills for sunsets though a car is recommended. House is basic with most needed items, though a bit dated and dusty. Oven doesn't work. Bathroom needs updating. Garden is best feature - although it was swarming with ants, but we bought some ant powder and it got better. It is better value for a family as it has many beds. Franco was very helpful and responsive.
Das Haus liegt in der Nähe eines der schönsten Strände von Sardinien, der im Hochsommer allerdings sehr stark besucht ist. Man benötigt für Einkäufe auf jeden Fall ein Auto; zum Strand geht man entweder ca. 20 Min (mit zwei Kindern!!) zu Fuß oder fährt mit dem Auto (Parkgebühr beachten und nicht irgendwo in einer Nebenstraße am Gehsteig parken...das kostet!!). Das Haus ist gut ausgestattet, allerdings ist es schon etwas abgewohnt (Punkteabzug für das Badezimmer!!) Die Terrasse ist großartig und zum Teil überdacht (Schatten!!). Franco war ein guter Gastgeber allerdings selbst nicht vor Ort aber telephonisch erreichbar; seine Mutter hat uns die Schlüssel übergeben und uns - nur auf Italienisch - eingewiesen. Wir haben den Urlaub in Stintino genossen.
We came to the house after a bit of hectic travelling and it was great for a more relaxed last portion of our holiday. The house is comfortable, very well situated and very relaxing with a great outdoor area. Franco was v helpful in giving us a list of local beaches (the best know, La Pelosa, was very crowded - so we went to La Saline, v different experience, great beach) would happily recommend it to friends.
