About this listing
A beautifully furnished house with ancient tiles, thick stone walls, all the necessary equipment to cook and enjoy your dinners on the terrace with a stunning view of the sea !
PERFECT FOR LARGE GROUPS AND FAMILY REUNIONS!
The West Coast of Sardinia ? Have you ever heard of it ? The single most overlooked jewel of the Mediterranean. Can you imagine seeing yourself strolling along sunkissed white quartz beaches in the late afternoon ?
And then returning to your luxury suite, and a welcoming glass of cold white wine and delicious snacks specially prepared by Paola or Simon. Dreams really can come true: this house is the perfect getaway for anybody in search or a requiem from the masses, and we’re only a couple of hours from both the main airports of the island.
Specialities here include the best olive oil you’ve ever tasted, superb wines, cheeses to die for, and the most tasteful meats you have ever experienced. Not forgetting the stunning locally produced vegetables, fish, and of course the Sardinian equivalent of caviar, “bottarga”.
Less than five minutes casual stroll takes you to the square, with its café, bank, post office, vegetable store and newspaper stand (news in English, German and French!).
In this Sardinian village on the West Coast, dominated by a cathedral of historical importance, you will enjoy the beauty of the countryside, 15 mn drive from the stunning beaches with crystal clear water, perfect for scuba or snorkelling.
The 500 sqm (5500 sqf) family house (two communicating houses), located 1 mn from the mayor square, with its café, bank, post office, vegetable store and newspaper stand (news in English, German and French!), has 5 storey's, 7 bedrooms, 5 full shower rooms, 2 extra showers, internet access, and wonderful terraces with a fantastic view to the sea.
To cook, you will have to chose between the huge kitchen downstairs and the kitchen on the terrace, which will allow you to have breakfast and dinner enjoying the view. You can also prepare a barbecue dinner outside on the terrace.
During the day, you can either enjoy the beautiful beaches of the area, reachable in 20 to
40 mn drive, visit the archeological sites of the ancient Nuraghe, or sunbathe on the motor boat which the owners have available for an extra charge.
In the evening, if you don't want to have dinner at home, you can go to the restaurants of the coast, from the Alta Marea in S'Archittu to the amazing fish cooperative in Cabras.
If you want a quiet evening, you can look for a book in the library (4 languages there, French, Italian, English and Russian), enjoy TV, from CNN or BBC in English to Al Jazira in Arabic, or watch one of the numerous DVDs you will find on the shelves.
If you don't want to drive everyday, there are buses transiting from Cuglieri to the main places of interest, from Bosa to Alghero, Cabras, Oristano or Olbia ! Or just to the beaches of Santa Caterina and S'Archittu, where you can spend the day.
The owner, who lives nearby, has traveled the world ans speaks English, French, Russian, Italian and a little Spanish!
This place is unique in Europe, because you have the access to the most beautiful part of the Mediterranean sea in an area which has not been reached yet by the touristic masses, with affordable prices and a wonderful peace.
Short showers, if you want hot water.
Quiet in the house after midnight.
Take good care of the owner's collections (antiques, paintings, porcelaine, silverware).
