Perfect villa with beautiful, immaculately clean pool . Lots of choice in seating areas- my daughters loved lying by the pool which is barely overlooked and very secluded. I enjoyed sitting on the shaded patio area on the outdoor sofa and armchairs looking at the sea and reading. There is an 8 seater dining table and comfortable dining chairs where we ate all our meals again looking out to sea. The house is extremely tasteful with lovely personal touches-the lamps, the candleholders , the furniture are all in harmony. The bedrooms are a good size with plenty of space for clothes etc and the bathrooms are not cramped. On a practical note I appreciated the dishwasher and washing machine. There were 4 of us but the villa would comfortably take 6. It is only a few minutes to the nearest beach where the water is bright blue. I swam in the sea more this holiday than in years. It is not far to the supermarket or into town. The beach called La Pelosa which is famed for its beauty is also nearby. We hired motorboats , paddleboards, laser dinghys and pedalos all locally. We had a few day trips to Alghero, Castelsardo and the north coast and down to Neptune's cave but we all looked forward to coming back to Villa Paradiso to relax. A wonderful holiday which will linger long in our memories

PKW ist unbedingt erforderlich. Der Weg von der Hauptstraße ist gut befahrbar. Karen ist sehr hilfsbereit und kompetent, die Buchung verlief völlig problemlos. Die Ausstattung entspricht der Beschreibung. Stören können die zahlreichen Ameisen im Außenbereich, daher unbedingt auf Sauberkeit (regelmäßig kehren) achten, um diese nicht anzulocken. Sehr zu empfehlen für alle, die einen ruhigen Urlaub verbringen wollen und bereits sind, zum Einkaufen, für den Stand- oder Stadtbesuch ein paar Minuten zu fahren.
