About Leigh Warriner

We live in the Cotswold with our grown up children. The area is full of wonderful places to visit, charming little villages as well as trendy up market towns.

Italian life is wonderful living life to the full and we were inspired with Sardinia when on holiday in 2004 and decided to search for the ideal villa for our family holiday home. We fell in love with the west coast and all the beautiful beaches.

Family life is very special,having fun and spending time together is priceless,

we hope families and friends enjoy our second home is in Sardinia as much as we do.

Leigh Warriner purchased this villa in 2005

Why Leigh Warriner chose Bosa

We love the west coast with its wonderful beaches and very relaxed way of life. It is very accessible from the 3 Major airports, Algerho being the closest. After viewing several properties we came across Il Frutetto, in total need of renovation but a good location, 15 minutes from the coast and busy towns offering good restaurants, culture, bars and night clubs.

Although we had lots of work to renovate it, we designed the villa

to suit couples or large families/friends.

We fell in love with the terrace and the original outdoor table and have updated it with tiles and modern finishes and built a wooden pagoda so the vines and roses still grow over and give lots of shade.

The villa has the best of both worlds, enjoying the coast, towns and villages but coming home to the calm and tranquil setting.

The stars and silence at night are amazing and not forgetting the pool for a last minute dip, the garden has wonderful lighting at night.

In the same hamlet a church, tennis courts, park, restaurant , local spring water and stunning water falls.

The villa large enough to sleep 9 people. The garden was large

and secure for children and enough area to put a pool in -

an essential for us English abroad.

What makes this villa unique

Large private grounds with large outdoor swimming pool

15 minutes drive to the nearest beach-

4 bedrooms

2 bathrooms

Guestbook comments from the owner

August 2014 7 nights

We are 2 french family's 4 adults 4 children. We have enjoyed our stay at the villa, it is well equipped, very comfortable, clean and relaxing.

it was especially good for the children, they enjoyed the garden and pool and when it was very hot during the day they watched dvd and played inside. some evenings we walked down to the park where they played on the equipment. There is an excellent takeaway pizza in scano di montiferro if you don't want to cook and excellent restaurant in Flussio 5 minute drive away.

we would recommend this villa.

lovely Villa in beautiful Sardinia

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from our stay at this Villa in Sardinia and wanted to pass on our comments to anyone thinking of staying here.

The Villa although split into two buildings was ideal for our holiday especially as we were two families together and split ourselves between the two villas. Both Villas were very clean, spacious and well equipped for our stay with modern appliances and comfy beds. The pool area was perfect for the children to cool off and splash around in and their was plenty of sun lounging furniture for the lazier adults. The badminton net was a nice addition as well as a couple of board games for the children when they needed to cool off. The large table became a special favorite for eating and chatting during our evening meals

The area surrounding the Villa is stunning. From the walking distance of the local Church and park of St Anticio to the local towns of Sagama and Tinnura and the backdrop of the mountains the setting is beautiful. Bosa is a lovely town with several nice places to eat and drink and to sit around the main square (Sardinians like watching the world go by) The beaches of Bosa Marina and around Cape Manu (Both within a 35 minute drive) are stunning and good seas for children to swim in with warm waters and clear seas. Also for anyone who has not been before Sardinian people are very friendly and accommodating.

You will definitely need a car to stay and explore the island. We hired a car from Alghero airport and is just over an hour although the windy roads take a little getting used to after the straight roads of the UK!

We will definitely think about returning to this Villa over the next few years and would recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting this magical island. (The pictures do not give justice to the Villa and surrounding area)

Owner's Response: I feel that It is very important to make a holiday villa into a home for guests staying to use and enjoy, nothing gives me greater pleasure than knowing guests have had a fantastic holiday. I will continue to add more to the villas ie toys,books for children and garden games for everyone, so keep the positive comments coming, it can only get better! Gav ,Entorage and friends obvoiusly had a great time and I must admit the large table under to vines( seats 10- 12 people very comfortably) is a special place for sharing moments of fun with friends and family as well as romance under the stars. Sardinia is a beautiful island, as well as the people,they are a very relaxed and happy population, but a car is an essential if you want to see and enjoy the island. Lastly I would just like to say big thank you to Gav 's family and friends for a great review and look forward to your next booking regards leigh

Plenty of space with everything you need plus more

  • 5 of 5

We had a thoroughly relaxing 7 day holiday in the 2 villas. Both ourselves and our grown up children and friends had an amazing stay and look forward to doing it again. The Agriturismo restaurant 1/2 mile down the track is a must but beware it is not necessary to eat for at least 2 days beforehand and only red wine is served. Although the villas are in a quiet location this suited us all. The river and large picnic area plus the local church are only 200 metres down the road. Bosa is a lovely old town with a beach about 1 km away with an abundance of good restaurants. Further afield is Alghero which we all fell in love with. Close to the sea again with an abundance of good restaurants and plenty to see in its array of narrow streets. Try the little train or horse drawn carriage, specially if you have young children.

Owner's Response: It's so lovely to know you have enjoyed the villa as much as we do, it is ideal for large groups. The new swimming pool will be a bonus this summer it is 8 x 4 meters with a new large sun terrace, sun loungers and parasols, relaxing around the pool will be even better. The agritorismo is great fun, good value and very welcoming. There is plenty of traditional Italian food, red wine and water and if you prefer something else to drink you are welcome to take it along. It is possible to book by email before your holiday or just call in to arrange a date. The villa is a great base for exploring the west coast with its blue flag beaches, good restaurants and pretty towns - not forgetting the locals who are all very friendly and happy to chat. We look forward to welcoming you back to Il Frutteto soon. kind regards Leigh Warriner

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your kind words, we are pleased that you relaxed and enjoyed Il Frutteto as many family's do. The' Alfresco area' is ideal for eating day or night, it has plenty of seating for at least 10 people and the vine covered pagoda keeps the table in the shade during the day. We have many fond memories chatting with our friends in the calm summer evenings with a few glasses of wine. Yes the sea is not far by car, there are many beautiful beaches to enjoy and explore.The surrounding traditional villages have lots to offer - historical churches, piazzas, cobbled narrow streets and many houses with enormous paintings on the walls - a sight to remember. We pride ourselves that Il Fruetto is within easy reach of the beaches and towns, but at the end of the day you can relax and enjoy the peace and calm of the country side. kind regards Leigh Warriner

Another wonderful stay in Il Frutteto

  • 4 of 5

Our second time going to Il Frutteto and everything was still wonderful. Nice and clean accomodation and this time all basic stuff like salt, pepper, oil etc. was there.

Talked with the pool cleaner guy, who had a very professional approach to us as guests.

This time we found a pizza place in nearby Scano, who made the best pizza and the restaurant was local, so just to feel the atmosphere there was awesome. Nearby Sennariolo is also great little town for a walk to look at murals, for a drink pitstop on the way home from the beach and also they have a small market, where you can find breakfast when the baker in Scano has closed.

Can only recommend this property !

Owner's Response: Hello and once again thank you for a good review. We informed our agents after your review last year and they ensure that any basics are left in the villa. We are very pleased with our 'work force', gardener, pool man, cleaners and our agent they are very professional and caring, keeping Il Frutteto to a good standard. The pizza place in scano is excellent for eating out or you can pick up a takeaway. it also has a great super market thats sells most things as well as excellent meat and bread, its ideal to have amenities local. The agritorismo next door has had some good reviews from some of our clients - this is just a 5 minute walk, this just adds to making your holiday more enjoyable and relaxing. If you are looking for true italian life here it is, unspoilt beaches, villages and scenery. We hope that you will stay again. Kind regards Leigh Hibbs

A great place to be!

  • 5 of 5

We once again we have experienced a very relaxing and sunny holiday at il fruttteto. A few changes to the villa including a micro wave,DVD player, I Pod station and more new sun beds, these have been well received. The Agrituriso restaurant next door which was not open on our last stay was very welcoming, friendly and the food was excellent.

We have been to our favourite beaches and have discovered another amazing beach about 30 mins south on the coast St Katrina, well worth a visit.

The pool has been lovely, our friends had teenage boys and were in the pool every day, as well as cooling down ourselves when needed.

The owners are very pleasant and the local agents are always at hand if any problems occur.

We would highly recommend this villa to family and friends.

Michael and family

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review. Each year we add and improve the villa, the DVD player has been enjoyed by all the family. The Agriturismo restuarant is a bonus, just a short walk away for good italian food, strolling back under the stars. The owners do require you to book a day ahead. The pool is everyones favourite and we now have 6 sun loungers to bask in the sun. We hope to put a bigger pool in for next season one that is set in the ground with a large patio area. Its nice to know our contact with clients helps, we want everyone to enjoy our family home - we hope to see you again Kind Regards Leigh
