Beautiful villa in fabulous location!

5 of 5
My family stayed for 2 weeks in July 2017 and can't wait to return! We were given a very warm welcome by the hosts on arrival and they were on hand for any questions during our stay. The villa is very well maintained, especially the huge garden and amazing pool. The pool really is a good as it looks in the photos! The villa is in a quiet location but only a few minutes drive from Alghero and numerous stunning beaches! Highly recommend the villa for a relaxing holiday.

It was lovely to spend some time in and around La Corte.

5 of 5
The appartment is on the ground floor underneath where Tino & Simonetta live. That's very handy if you arrive at 1am as we ended up doing! (Getting a hire car at Alghero airport takes a surprisingly long time). Despite this our hosts were very friendly and welcoming. It was nice to eat out on the patio in the evening and going to the shop in the village was always good fun. It's a small peaceful village and there are lots of beaches to drive to in and around Alghero. It's a clean appartment and during the very hot weather we had, we were glad that it was more like a lower ground floor flat with small windows that kept things a bit cooler.
