                                                                                                      We were a family of six (four adults, two small children). The description was accurate (although the piano is only for decoration). The house is in a residential area of Arbatax, very near Porto Frailis beach. It is designed by an architect, and although the style is not to everyone’s taste, the house is very comfortable, spacious and practical with high quality fittings and furnishings. On the first floor, there is a huge living room, kitchen and wonderful covered terrace facing the pool with a kitchen and BBQ grill, sofas, chairs and a table which seats 6. There is a laundry area and an outside area with sun loungers and a clothes drying rack. It is completely private. The terrace at the front has a view of the hills and gets the evening sun, but has only one table and three chairs, so we didn’t use it as much. There are three bedrooms on the ground floor: a master bedroom, with double bed, walk-in closet, lots of storage and room for an additional single bed or cot; a second bedroom with a single bed and space for another single bed; a third bedroom with two single beds (or one double). All the beds were comfortable. Two single folding beds can be added in the living room upstairs, so that the house sleeps 8 people. There are two complete bathrooms: a downstairs bathroom with shower and an upstairs bathroom (with frescoes!) with bath and shower over, so you can bathe children. The property was spotlessly clean, only some very minor maintenance items, for example one toilet seat. The manager, Mara, provides excellent customer service, answering text messages very promptly and giving advice on local facilities, and even accompanying me to the pasticceria to buy a birthday ice cream cake! Porto Frailis beach is only 5 minutes on foot, easy walking distance even for the children. All the local beaches have got EU Blue Flag classification. Restaurants and gelaterie within walking distance. A good bakery only 5 mins by car, fruit shop, cake shop and small supermarket. In nearby Tortoli, supermarkets, a fish cooperative and fresh pasta shop. Few negative points: no external shutters on windows so for total darkness you have to shut the windows as well. No mosquito screens; low water pressure; noise from disco and/or Red Valley Festival; complicated Sardinian recycling. In conclusion, I would strongly recommend the property and we would all like to go back there next year.

Our sons loved to play football in the garden. The pool is good to cool off and for the children also good for swimming. There are lots of beautyful beaches in the area. The owner was very kind and helpful.
