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.

Getting to Bassacutena

The nearest airport to Bassacutena is Olbia-Costa Smeralda Airport, about 28 miles to the south-east.

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.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      Location suited out needs exactly as this is the first time our much travelled family has visited Sardinia and what an enjoyable experience it was, as it gave us the opportunity to travel around this area without going too far. I would suggest the villa is not within walking distance of the village if you are not very fit as it is on a main road and the heat in summer would not make it a pleasurable experience. The villa had lovely views and was in a quiet location off the main road into Baja. The extremely clean swimming pool was hardly used and my daughter had it all to herself several times. A beautiful beach a 2 minute drive is at Porto Solo with a WC and reasonably priced sun beds and refreshments and very helpful staff, mostly used by locals and extremely safe for me being a poor swimmer, also there were not too many "sellers" which invaded other beaches we tried. The owners are delightful and we were welcomed with wine and a fruit tart as we were celebrating our Golden Wedding Anniversary with our two "adult" daughters. Being British, there was no kettle with which to boil water for tea, but Mrs Milly the owner's representative, produced one the next day for our use. The accommodation was very clean and very well furnished with china, cutlery, and utensils. The beds we all agreed were some of the best we have slept in and the Air Con worked well in the bedrooms. Mrs Milly's boat Hot Wind was a great experience helped by a good mix of nationalities who all integrated well and a memorable day was had by all. The Agriturismo venue near San Panataleo was another great experience, but you do need to book. Just one point, taxis are a rareity and very expensive, so someone has to drive if you want to eat out in the evening and have a drink. One minor point, we would recommend sliding bolts be fitted to the bathroom doors. We will be returning to Sardinia for sure, probably just as a couple.

The villa is even better then described. It has everything needed. The house is architecturally perfect. But the highlight is the terrace were you can enjoy every evening an amazing sunset and the private pool. We enjoyed it so much, that we dared to go out at sunset time. We would have missed something spectacular. The house is very clean and in perfect condition. We would like to come again.
