I spent a fantastic two weeks in Marilyn's beautiful villa. Marilyn couldn't have been more helpful - and her local contact Anna was absolutely lovely. The villa is even more stunning than the photos suggest and has everything you could want for in a home away from home (with the only exception being a teapot! Ha! Although it's possible I just didn't find it). The Torre dei Corsari is quite remote (as other's have pointed out) but that's one of the reasons why I booked it! I wanted peace and quiet - and that's what I got! I was there in early May (so definitely quiet that time of year) and I had rotten luck with the unusually bad weather, but even that didn't stop me from being amazed by the beauty of the area. Lots of lovely walks nearby and if you're a bird watcher - this is the area for you. Sitting on the veranda of the villa enjoying the sea view and the acrobatics of the local housemartin population was my favourite way to start and end the day. Other guests have commented on the poor wifi - but I actually had no problems with it whatsoever. It was surprisingly good, I thought! (though I wasn't streaming Netflix or videos or anything like that - just reading emails and the news online etc.) And Sardinia is very 4G connected in general - so my phone always had access to data services no matter where I was. I actually had better 4G access than I get at home in the UK! The most important thing to know: I would love to return! And if Marilyn still has her villa available for rent next year - I definitely will be returning. :-)
We had a wonderful week at Villa L'Orto. The villa is extremely comfortable and lots of effort has been made to ensure that guests have everything they need. Having only been built in relatively recent years, the villa is well designed to ensure that there is plenty of shade and cool areas during what was an exceptionally hot August. The finish of the building is of high quality and modern with just a nod to rural Sardinia. We were very grateful for the air conditioning in both bedrooms and so enjoyed very comfortable nights' sleeps. When we arrived, the whole property was spotlessly clean. The kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom was a luxurious size. There were plenty of books about the island as well as novels and games, and there were lots of DVDs to watch. Alan, the owner, provided us with very detailed information about the property in advance and most usefully, about places to eat nearby. We enjoyed an outstanding meal at the nearby agritourismo with stunning views of the sea. The two local beaches were beautiful - relatively quiet with mainly Italian tourists and the sea was aquamarine. A perfect place to stay with 2 children.
