About this listing
A large house, full of charm, cozy, with a private garden with roses and fruit trees. It can comfortably accommodate up to 6 people. In the center of a hillside village, 5 km from the beautiful Sardinian coast.
The house is located inside the historical centre of Tresnuraghes village, on the top of a hill, only 5 km from the beatuful Porto Alabe public beach and 5 km from the charming little town of Bosa.
It is 130 m2 large, with 3 bedrooms, dining room, living room, bathroom, veranda and a 150 m2 garden with fruit trees and roses. It's an old house that has been restored. Furnitures are mainly wooden and the atmosphere is genuine and cozy. The garden is perfect for dinners and barbecue.
The village has about 1800 inhabitants. There's a bank, a pharmacy, a tabaconist's, a paper shop, many food shops and almost any kind of shop (including an open-air market every monday morning), all within walking distance. There are also two pizzerias, but if you want to taste very good fish and sardinian dishes, my advice is to go at "Trattoria da Riccardo", in the near village of Magomadas.
Car hiring is essential, to reach beaches and bays all along the coast, or Bosa, a charming medieval little town, with its castle, its river, its shops, restaurants and amenities (including an open-air market every tuesday morning and frequent village festivals). There is also Bosa Marina, with a long beach, many restaurants, fun and nightlife.
The accomodation is for people who doesn't like places too crowded of tourists and wants to enjoy the sea, the nature and to know local people and culture... and feeling at home, coming back at evening, even while on holiday!
Guests are required not to damage the objects in the home or garden.

Garbage must be collected separately (glass and cans, paper, plastic, organic waste, non-recyclabe waste) and put outside the door the night before the specific collecting day (see the calendar on the fridge).
Cars can be parked on the opposite side of the street and in the nearby streets, taking care not to block the access to the other houses, or the opening of the windows, or other vehicles passage.
WE had a wonderfull stay in Roberta's house. It is a traditional sardinian house decorated in a charming vintage style. The village had a niece atmosphere we could fine everything we needed. It is 10 min a way by car to a Nice and familial beach. We could not meet Roberta but she gave good advices (restaurants, places to visit) before our arrival and the neiborhood was really helpfull. So we felt like home!!
From the very outset Roberta was a responsive and helpful host. Our request for advice on the local area was immediately met with brilliant suggestions and helpful directions on what to do once we arrived.
Upon arrival it was immediately apparent that the pictures don't do Roberta's house justice. It is incredibly charming and beautiful, with antique beds and bed linen, mismatched vintage finds and rustic touches all over. At night the sky is littered with stars and during the day the village provides a picturesque setting for coffee before the beach. The CD player and mix of Italian and English music were also an added bonus and provided an authentic soundtrack while we pottered about the house.
The location is excellent, near the beach and the town of Bosa. It doesn't take too long to get anywhere, but you will really need a car to get the most out of this place.
Nous avons été séduit par le charme de cette vielle maison typique,
avec ce petit jardin intérieur. Nous avons eu la chance d assister à
la fête local, procession, cavaliers, dances folkloriques !
Petit bémol concernant la lumière intèrieur qui ne correspond pas tout
à fait à la réalité.Cependant c est une adresse qui vaut le détour !
La maison de Roberta a beaucoup d'atout dans un village très bien situé. On sent que la maison a une âme.
Nous avons apprécié notre séjour à proximité de Bosa.
wie immer ein traumhafter und entspannter Aufenthalt in einer gut in Schuss gehaltenen und gepflegten Atmosphäre. Die freundliche Nachbarschaft verhilft einem zusätzlich, sich sofort wie zu Hause zu fühlen.
Just arrived back at home. We did not have a chance to meet Roberta, but all the mail-conversations we had were nice, fast and to the point. We asked for a couple of recommendations and promptly received a thoughtful list of places and restaurants to visit.
The house had a very tasteful Interieur and looks exactly as pictured in the photos. It's located in a nice, not very crowded town and has a couple of friendly neighbors. The next city, the beach etc. is good reachable by car which can be parked directly in front of the door.
We felt comfortable in the kitchen, in the bath and while reading in the (somewhat dry and sandy) garden.
Our nitpicks: Two of the three bedrooms are located at the front of the building and facing directly to the street. If your sleep isn't that deep, this might be a problem. On top of that, we left three days early, since both of the next door houses had active building-sites, which could be heard throughout the day. Definitely not Robertas fault, but worth a mention.
This was the best house we stayed in during out visit to Sardinia. Roberta is a delightful and understanding hostess who has created a marvellous home in a charming and authentic village in the hills outside Bosa. The rooms are decorated with genuine style and imagination and there is a proper large comfy bed. The atmosphere is creative and elegant - ther furnishings chic and interesting. It is an old style Sardinian home restored with an eye for detail.
We took her advice and ate at Trattoria Riccardo which served one of the best meals we had on the island. The countryside around Tresnuraghes is breathtaking and there are good beaches nearby. Highly recommended.
About the Host, Roberta
I was born in Milan, then I moved to Padua, where I studied Philosophy at University and attended a Drama School. For several years I have been working in theater and travelling a lot in Italy and abroad, with long stays in France and Japan. Now I live in Rome , I'm married to a journalist , we have a daughter. I still work as an actress, in film, television, theater, dubbing. I also translate and write... I love the seaside and Sardinia. I do not like crowded or hip places and I do not like typical holiday-home style. My Sardinian house, where I myself spend part of my holidays, is an authentic home, with family furniture, local crafts and some new necessary objects. It's not perfect , but I find it has a nice atmosphere. I assimilated Japanese aesthetic concepts of "wabi" and "sabi", referring to the charm of some old and simple objects . I love reading, and in my Sardinian house there is a large library (quite unusual for an holidays home), enriched by the legacies of foreign guests and therefore international. Even my CD collection - rather outdated , I know - it's in Sardinia. The garden is beautiful but wild: I admit I have not the slightest hint of a green thumb. I like to drink and eat well and in Sardinia it'is easy because local products are excellent. I make a limited use of technology and none of social networking (I feel bound to respond promptly to any message or request of friendship and that quickly lead me to saturation). Once my motto was "try everything at least once," now is more like a line of a Lucio Dalla's song , "... but the most extraordinary venture, listen to me, is being normal!"
