Make a holiday villa in Bassacutena your home away from home

Movies about Italy often show scenes where a large group of people is gathered around the table, having a long, leisurely lunch in the sun. If you would love to experience a lunch like this with your friends, look no further than a holiday villa in Bassacutena. Most of the rental properties have BBQ facilities so you can prepare that al fresco lunch and most are located in sprawling farm-like surrounds. All properties come fully furnished so you won’t have to bring your own plates. Holiday villas in Bassacutena are spacious enough to accommodate between 5 and 8 people, depending on the property, and most are pet friendly so you can bring the dog too.

Things to do

Bassacutena is a small village in the Gallura region of northern Sardinia, in the heart of farming country. Tuscan woodcutters used to frequent the area and may have given it its name. The town itself developed in the 19th century when the road between Tempio Pausania and Palau was built. Giuseppe Garibaldi pushed through a change in the route the road was to take so that it would pass through the property of a friend who owned a sheep pen here.

-The countryside around your holiday villa in Bassacutena simply has to be explored. There are many different hiking, biking and horse-riding trails in the area. They will take you through farmland and groves of oak and olive trees or you may opt to go down to the nearby Liscia River and explore its banks.

-Lago del Liscia is an artificial lake about 4 miles south of Bassacutena upstream on the Liscia River. Here you can swim, row, fish or just take in the peaceful surroundings. Along the shores there are magnificent granite structures eroded by time and you’ll also find olive groves that have been here for a millennium. There is also a spa nearby if you need some pampering.

-The beaches are a great reason to choose Sardinia. Bassacutena’s location in northern Sardinia means you’ll be spoilt for choice, with the beaches of the famous Costa Smeralda to the south-east, starting from Palau about 9 miles away, and the beaches of Santa Teresa di Gallura about 18 miles to the north-west. Here you can participate in a variety of water sports, from swimming and sailing to snorkelling and diving.

-La Maddalena Archipelago is an excellent day trip from holiday homes in Bassacutena. Bassacacutena may not have been here if it hadn’t been for the favour Garibaldi did for his friend. From Palau, take the ferry to the La Maddalena and visit the island where Garibaldi spent his final years and was buried. The islands of the archipelago also offer great hiking and water sports.

-Arzachena, to the south-east, is the place to go to if you want to stock up on provisions for your movie-style lunch at your Bassacutena holiday villa. The market there not only offers a variety of fresh produce but also typical Sardinian cheeses and other delicacies. Arzachena is also home to some of Sardinia’s most impressive Nuragic sites, including the nuraghe of Albucciu, the Giants’ Tombs of Coddu Vecchju and Li Lolghi and the temple of Malchittu.

Weather in Bassacutena

Bassacutena has the Mediterranean climate you’d want for an Italian holiday. Summer days are long, sunny and hot, with temperatures reaching around 28 °C and a shower once in a while. Winters are milder, with night-time temperatures of around 8 °C and daily maximums of around 13 °C in the coldest months. Winter is also the rainy season with November and December being the wettest months.

Getting to Bassacutena

The nearest airport to Bassacutena is Olbia-Costa Smeralda Airport, about 28 miles to the south-east. You can fly to Olbia from various cities in Europe or travel in by ferry from either Livorno or Genoa. Public transport from Olbia is not really a feasible option and it’s better to hire a car and drive to your Bassacutena holiday accommodation.

Bellissima casa in stile sardo

5 of 5
Casa molto bella e spaziosa (siamo stati in 8) con tanta cura dei dettagli. Il tutto in stile sardo. Dalla terrazza si ha una bellissima vista sul mare. In vicinanza ci sono tantissime spiagge bellissime e Simona non si è mai stancata a darci graditissimi consiglli. È sicuramente un posto dove torneremo! L'unica pecca è stato un cantiere dietro la casa che però alla prossimo estate dovrebbe essere già superato

Peaceful retreat with stunning views

5 of 5
Our flight from London was delayed so we arrived at the villa in darkness, shortly after midnight. Unfortunately this meant that we had to wait until morning to experience the breathtaking views! The villa was everything and more that we expected. No review or photograph can tell you how a place can make you feel, and from the first morning we felt totally relaxed and at home. The villa is really well equipped for a holiday for couples or a family, and there are restaurants and shops within a short drive from the property. A car is a necessity when staying here in order to get the most out of the area and this had been explained to us by Nicki prior to arrival, and she was contactable the whole time we were there. The pool is fantastic, and the outside area gives you options of sun or shade, all with the wonderful views! The sunsets are sublime, each one different and a real feature of this location. This is one of the most relaxing holidays we have ever had and our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! Sardinia is very different to mainland Italy, particularly this northern area, but it is stunningly rugged with amazing rock formations seemingly carved by the wind! The development at Costa Paradiso is beautifully executed with unobtrusively designed villas blending into the landscape. A hidden gem we are so glad we discovered.

Nice property, great host and views to die for

5 of 5
If you decide to vacation in Costa Paradiso this is clearly the place to stay - superb location - detached house in the center of Costa Paradiso but on a fairly lightly used one way street, very elegantly decorated, well planned and maintained and owned by Malaika who is a great host - responsive, generous and very helpful. Kitchen has everything you need and of decent quality. Pictures on the site do not justice to the views you will enjoy no matter whether you are up for a morning coffee or enjoying dinner with the view on the sunset - make sure your phone has enough memory for the pics. Swimming pool is larger than it seems on the pictures as well and very properly maintained. Overall - 5 star vacation - Grazie Malaika.
