The ground floor apartment of our 2 stunning apartments overlooking Porto Pollo, the islands of the Archipelago di Maddalena and the Bonifacio Straits out to Corsica. The apartments both have 2 double/twin bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with sofa beds in the living room.
The upper apartment features a huge balcony with sunbeds and tables/chairs for watching the sun set over the islands. The downstairs apartment has a large terrace and grassed garden offering the same fantastic views. With double glazing and central heating they offer the warmth you want after a day in the water in early or late season but also cool nights in the height of Summer.
The apartments can sleep 6 people comfortably and are equipped with all the mod cons including washing machine, flatscreen TV with satellite channels and Ipod/MP3 player dock. The views from the balcony and terrace of the apartments are amongst the best in North Sardinia and you'll certainly enjoy many an evening watching the sunsets and boats sail past the islands.
Price includes all bills, towels & linen and final clean. Packages can also be quoted inclusive of transfers, rental of kit, excursions etc.
Just 8 minutes by car from the legendary watersports mecca of Porto Pollo in the N.E. of the island of Sardinia. Whether you want to windsurf, kite surf, dive, sail or just chill in the sun and take everything in, this is an ideal location, with everything on hand to meet all your needs. With so much to do on and off the water you’ll struggle to fit it all in a week so why not stay two!!!
I have stayed with my family (5 persons) at Giles house for 12 days. The flat is close to the airport in Olbia (40 min.) and nice beaches and cities (St. Teresa, Palau and La Maddalena) are also close by. All in all we were satisfied with the accomodation. The (bath-)rooms were clean and the view is definitely stunning. Giles is a good host and was very helpfull. Only the kitchen did not meet our needs entirely. You see that it has been well used by many other people before, while this is tolerable the pans were just dirty and almost unusable. Furthermore, our apartment did not have a DVD player, sony playstation and MP3 player dock. Not that we missed them but they were mentioned in the description.
In a nutshell I would say that the house is perfect for a group of young folks, who want to surf in Porto Pollo but I may wouldn't recommend it to a family with a certain standard of living.
Giles was a great host, followed up on all our emails and met us in person when we arrived. He explained everything about the apartment and the area. Apartment is very clean and spacious. Amazing views! Any point of interest can be easily reached by car. Would stay there again. Highly recommend!

I am a partner with 2 other friends in a small independent holiday company called FTX Holidays which we have been running together since 1999. We offer holidays in Chamonix-Mt-Blanc, France and Porto Pollo, Sardinia, Italy. At least 1 of us is in Chamonix at all times and in Porto Pollo from mid April-November so although we don't live in the apartments/chalet listed here we are always on hand to help out in any way we can.
I am passionate about the mountains and the sea and spend as much of my free time as possible skiing, snowboarding, biking, kitesurfing, windsurfing, diving, wakeboarding, sailing and surfing. I am always more than happy to share the 10+ years of local knowledge in these 2 very special places i'm lucky enough to call home.
