After a twisty, mountainous drive you arrive at Portixeddu with an absolutely beautiful beach. The apartment is clean, bright and welcoming with everything you need to have a comfortable stay. There are chairs and a parasol to use to enjoy the outside area and a barbecue although we did not use this during our week here. Every day we walked down to the local beach, a matter of minutes away from our front door on foot! Mr Armas was on hand to help with any requests we had, and clearly wanted us to have a comfortable stay. To buy provisions you need to drive to Buggeru or use the local fruit and veg stall a 10 minute walk away. If we had one minor criticism, it would be that there was no WiFi, although the initial description of the property seemed to suggest that there was. There are a nice amount of places to get food - 3 restaurants, 2 beach cafes and a beach bar and there are some nice activities. We enjoyed snorkelling around the rocky area of the beach and had a great boat trip with a local company and the friendly host Nicola! All in all a chilled holiday in a quiet and scenic location.
We enjoyed our stay here as it was not too busy and right on the beach which wasn't busy in the week and had shallow, clean waters,
The facilities were adequate and it made good use of the space. The only downsides were lots of sand flies so that we had to have the windows closed at night and so it was very hot and stuffy whilst sleeping. The mosquito screens on the door seemed to be broken and there weren't any on the back window, which would have made it cooler at night.
Enzo, the local contact/helper was fab and was very helpful and sociable even though neither of us spoke each others language.
