Large house in a great position for exploring the region

4 of 5
A house with huge rooms and high ceilings on one level. It's comfortable, with a certain lived-in, faded charm and the facilities you need are all in place. The house is in a great position on the edge of town, next to a park and the Lungomare sea - front. It's an interesting 10 minute stroll up to the centre of Sant'Antioco town. It's also easy to get out of town to explore the island and to cross the causeway to get to the wider region. You have hundreds of eating choices nearby and none disappointed us. There's a good SuperPan supermarket 3 mins walk away. Leave the house and turn left out of the gate, then walk left through the alleyway. The owner is charming and unobtrusive.

Stay in Gonnesa

4 of 5
The apartment matched exactly to the description. There are plenty of room for four persons: two bedroom, large kitchen (full equipped) und very very large living room. Gonnesa is not a touristic location however it has everything you need for a relaxing vacation: little supermarkets, bakery, butcher and bars. The 2 km long sandy beach is approx. 4 km far away and in the surroundings of 20 km your will find a lot of hiking trails.
