Description

The space

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 house, and enjoying the sunset with a glass of wine... Dreams really can come true: this house is the perfect getaway for anybody in search of peace or a requiem from the masses, and we’re only a couple of hours from 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.
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.

If you are a very large group (up to 20 persons), you can rent both houses (there are two communicating houses), at a higher but still very reasonable price, making it up to 8 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, take pictures of the "murales" of Tinnura or Orgosolo, or shop for straw baskets in Flussio..
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, not forgetting the trendy slow food places of Santu Lussurgiu, or our traditional Desogos restaurant in Cuglieri, just round the corner.
If you want a quiet evening, you can look for a book in the library (4 languages there, French, Italian, English and Russian), 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.

Paola was very nice and helpful. Cuglieri was a bit too quiet. The House is very Nice and roomy.

Everything was as described in the profile - Paola was extremely welcoming, helpful and always available. The house is very stylish, clean and with everything you could need. The beds were comfortable and the town of Cuglieri is so peaceful at night - you could hear a pin drop. Parking was super convenient. The town has the basic services you need - the main street is a two minute walk from the house. It's also in a good location - between Bosa and phenomenal beaches just a 15/20 minute drive away. The best part of the house is the roof top terrace with a view as far as the eye can see - on a clear day - the sea in fact! Another nice thing was that the hot water worked perfectly - no waiting when showering or using the sink. The only thing to keep in mind is that the house is vertical - 4 floors - so you certainly keep in shape - luckily there are two full kitchens - one on the ground floor and one on the top floor which opens out to the terrace. I really highly recommend Paola's house and the town of Cuglieri.

Paola's house is charming, tastefully decorated, very confortable, and makes you feel right at home the moment you step in. We had a wonderful 2 weeks stay there, making the most of every floor and room, especially the roof terrace -and its adjacent summer kitchen- for long evenings of aperitivi and cooking. Cuglieri is a very charming village nestled in the hills, along a beautiful road, a bit out of the way but that's part of its quality : it's quiet, and intact. And yet a quick ride away from many interesting, gorgeous spots. Paola is welcoming and friendly, always available, accommodating and helpful. Her generosity really contributed to make our vacation fuller. Thanks again, we look forward to the next time!

We had a fantastic holiday at Paola's place. The house is beautiful and unique, there's nothing common or boring about it. It's comfortable enough but the stairs can be an issue if you travel with young kids. The sunset on the roof terrace is unbelievable. Cuglieri is not a touristic place and has a real charm. Nearby beaches are stunning. We loved the house and will miss it.

We enjoyed a wonderful ten days at Paola's house in the sleepy town of Cuglieri. Paola was a perfect host who made us feel very welcome. The house was spacious, fully equipped, and a fantastic location for getting around central west sardinia. Perfect if you seek a little peace and quiet, a car is essential.

Paola User Profile

Longtime Journalist, I have lived in France, Italy, Tunisia, Russia, and lately New York for 5 years. I speak French, Italian, English, and Russian fluently, and I can understand pretty much of Spanish. Wherever I lived, though, I always had with me: my kids until they left the nest to fly with their own wings, my books, my music, my films, my paintings, my dreams. And my passion for good food and good wine !
I have now moved to Sardinia, where I bought a house on the west coast, largely unknown to tourists, and an olive grove, where I produce 100% Sardinian cold pressed extra-virgin olive oil, orange and fig jams and home made limoncello.

Journaliste jusqu'en mars 2012, j'ai vécu en France, Italie, Tunisie, Russie, et New York. Je parle français, italien, anglais et russe, et comprends l'espagnol.
Je suis maintenant installée en Sardaigne, où j'ai acheté une grande maison dans un village sur la côte ouest, sauvage et peu connue, et une oliveraie, où je produis de l'huile d'olive extra-vierge 100% sarde pressée à froid, des confitures d'orange et de figues et du limoncello maison.
