We have just returned from 2 weeks at this wonderful place near Olbia. If you want to be away from all the town buzz and like the countryside then this is the perfect place for you. The house sits in acres of land filled with fruit trees and olive groves. Your neighbours are on one side some sheep and chickens and a B&B on the other side (which is far enough away not to disturb you). The farmer next door (Rino's brother) even kindly provided us even with free range eggs.
We arrived very late (due to extremely slow passport control at Olbia airport) and Rino and Elena greeted us at the house with a banquet of salami, cheese, fresh breads, olives and fruits from the garden as well a nice glass of wine.
This house is fully equipped with all the basics (spices, wonderful home made olive oil, vinegar and there were even the basics including and beer in the fridge). It has lots of pans and pots if you want to cook your meals there as well as a BBQ which we used quite frequently. We were allowed to use the fruit from the garden as well as the tasty vegetables.
Rino was at the house attending the land for a short while most days when we returned from the beach early evening. We once had a problem with water/electricity which was dealt with immediately and a new water pump was installed the next day. As the couple don't speak much English we were also given the phone number of their daughter who is a fluent English speaker.
We cannot recommend this wonderful peaceful villa enough. There are stunning beaches within 15/20 min drive (all recommended by Rino) and lots of restaurants within Olbia (15 min drive). A supermarket is approx 10 min away.
My 12 year old son has been allowed to drive the lawn mowers around the land - supervised by Rino.
We hope to return one day and see more of this wonderful island and would surely stay at this house again.Thank you Rino, Elena and Cristina for making our holiday such a memorable one. Grazie per tutti x
The villa was lovely and one of the best equipt I have stayed in; communication with Giorgio was excellent he always responded within 24 hrs to any questions, queries. We were a party of 5 with a toddler and a teenager, there were a couple of beaches within 5 minutes walk that really suited the toddler and the teenager loved snorkelling in sea the from the end of the garden. There was a very good supermarket close by and the night market in the town just 5 minutes drive away was great in the evenings. There were two good restaurants within walking distance and restaurants, bars and shops in Golfo di Aranci. Apart from local beaches there were lovely beaches within a 15/20 minute drive and the emerald coast and Maddalena Islands were all doable in a day. Having such a well-equipt base really made the holiday easy and was a great introduction to Sardinia.
