The apartment is really good equiped, Gabriella (our host) was very kind and helpful. We trully recommend this place for a holiday with a small kid.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

The owner was very friendly and helpful - his English is limited, but he is studying and will surely improve. There are a few small shops in the village but you can drive to Oristano in 5 minutes and there is a large shopping centre with a big supermarket on the left as you enter the town. We enjoyed exploring the beaches, ruins and walks on the Sinis peninsula. At our speed of driving, it took 20 minutes to reach San Giovanni di Sinis (for the beach and the ruins at Tharros) which is lovely and fairly quiet in May. There is not much of a view from the apartment but it is in a cul-de-sac and the surroundings are pleasant. We enjoyed our stay and would certainly recommend it to others.
