Lovely antic cement tiles floor, beautiful and artistic bathrooms, a very cosy environment ! magnificent sunset over the sea from the roof terrace. Located in between sea and mountains, ideal for enjoying both !
The house is located in the heart of a village spread over a swelling hill of olive groves, crowned by the silhouette of a church. It is an authentic village which don’t need to pretend of being «smart». In fact, its situation at an altitude of 500 m and less than 15 kms from the sea make it a perfect base for exploring the region and will delight lovers of both sea and mountains with enchanting landscapes. The coast offers different kind of beaches (sand, amazing white quartz, turquoise and clear waters, hidden creek, wild cliffs). This coast is well preserved and conveys a wild enchantment. On foot, from the house, you can discover small paths going to a water fall on the mountain just behind the village.
A few shops, cafés, a famous restaurant serving wild meat and a well-reputed restaurant featuring fish animate the village which produces also an excellent olive (email hidden) drive, you can find golf courses, the only one in Europe open all year round. Other amenities in the area are: horse riding on beaches and salt lake, birdwatching, snorkelling, looking for ship relics and archaeological sites. The coast is especially re-known among surfers for the long waves and kyte surfers for the wind.
We stayed in Cuglieri with Muriel, and she was the best hostess ever!!! When we arrived on our first day, she had home made ravioli for us to share with her, now if thats a great way to start a vacation, I dont know what is!. She was warm and welcoming, and attentive. The town of Cuglieri is perched high above the sea in a hilltop town, the streets and narrow and winding, just like in magazines. Muriel also is friends with many people in the town, so its good to have her on your side! Her, home, which she renovated is simply fantastic, you can appreciate all the work that has been done on it. Muriel became a friend and I so hope to return to Cuglieri and stay in her beautiful home again.
If you are looking for a beautiful place to stay with an exceptional view and a host that takes care of you in a personal and warmhearted way, you will be right at Muriel's home.
All that's left after being back home - is to say thanks for a bag full of sparkling memories they hopefully carry us back to take up story lines and meet again. Thank you Muriel for having us.
