A great family villa in a rural setting

5 of 5
I have just returned from staying at this property with my husband and family, totalling 6 adults & 1 toddler and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The property was clean and well equipped and Diane, the agent who met us there was brilliant with all relevant information on the villa and also on the surrounding area and the 'to-do's'. She got our basic provisions for us, as we had a later arrival, plus a tiramisu cake I had asked if she could get for birthday celebrations we had, which was very welcoming after our journey from Olbia. All liaision prior to travel was first class and would certainly recommend to anyone. The location was great for Alghero & getting to the main roads for sightseeing. We can recommend, for Sunday lunch time, Sa Mandra-Azienda Agrituristica which was a wonderful local dining experience of several courses in a beautiful setting - check out trip advisor. Also the walk to the Grotte Di Nettuno down nearly 700 steps (and back again) was great, if you like walking, and the views outstanding. You can get a boat from Alghero if you prefer. Overall a most memorable holiday.

Amazing place and host!

5 of 5
My friends and I had an amazing time in Alghero, made so much more amazing by staying in this beautiful penthouse! The apartment is lovely, very spacious and beautifully decorated, the layout is perfect for a group of friends or family with four really good sized bedrooms two bathrooms, a well equipped kitchen and great communal spaces, we spent most of our time on the two terraces, perfect for eating and drinking together whilst enjoying the beautiful Sardinian weather! Anna Maria was a perfect host, the sweetest lady - charming, warm and helpful, she made us feel so welcome and at home :) The location of the apartment is great, the neighbourhood is lovely and quiet, so very relaxing but all amenities, shops and cafes super close and the old town just a short walk away. I would definitely recommend this apartment for a stay in Alghero and I hope that we will return and stay again very soon!

Great location, very homely apartment, extremely helpful host & delightful welcome person

5 of 5
Sweet home Amethyst is a place we'd love to return to. Great living in the heart of Alghero- what a thrill to lean out the window to hang out the washing! Loved having two bathrooms & this apartment has a wonderful friendly ambience. Alghero was a good base for exploring South to Bosa & the nearby National Parks- our host had supplied lots of great information. Thanks for our memorable stay & being so hospitable. Louise Sept 2016
