Although a few metres from a shop, a local pizza takeaway place and a short stroll from the centre of the town it is very quiet and private. We parked our rented car right in front of the main door which was very handy too. The house is very clean and has an airy feel to it. La Maddalena is a beautiful place to visit, the beaches are unforgettable. So glad we made the effort of coming here, it was well worth it.

Sitting at the table for our meals watching the boats and ferries was amazing. The apartment was clean and comfortable and great to have two bathrooms. A large fridge freezer in the kitchen with complimentary wine, water and fruit was a nice touch. A quiet location with a ten minute walk to the bustle of the town centre. The description and pictures shown are accurate but you have to see the view to appreciate it. There is a large garage, but it is a tight squeeze to manoeuvre a large car into it. We had a Ford Focus. Being fitness fanatics, we joined Cross Fitness gym (speak to Alberto). A brilliant gym 5-6 minutes down the hill from the apartment. A morning run to the Island of Caprera, about three miles away, will set you up for the day. Go early, it is too hot to run after 08:00. Elena boat trip around the islands is recommended. There are loos onboard too which were very clean. Lots of beaches to choose from with lovely turquoise waters, watch out for jellyfish though. Great holiday on La Maddalena and a great apartment.
