Via deze groenstrook konden onze kinderen van 8 en 10 jaar oud in alle vrijheid naar zee om tussen de rotsen naar heremietkreeftjes te zoeken. Verschillende mooie zandstranden liggen binnen wandel- en fietsafstand. Mandriola is een klein 'dorp' van hoofdzakelijk tweede verblijven van Sarden. In de paasvakantie is het er dan ook heerlijk rustig. Het appartement zelf was piekfijn in orde en is voorzien van alle noodzakelijkheden. Het zonnige ruime terras met zicht op tuin, zee (en kinderen) was heerlijk. 4 fietsen (waaronder 2 kinderfietsen) staan klaar om de onmiddellijke omgeving te verkennen. Van hieruit hebben wij ook via dag-uitstappen de volledige west-kust verkend . Corrado, de eigenaar, is uiterst correct, heel attent en steeds bereikbaar. Zoekt u een rustig vakantieverblijf, omringd door mooie natuur, twijfel dan niet. Je hebt het gevonden. Corrado, thanks again for our beautiful stay in Mandriola and for sharing a nice bottle of Vernaccia with us!

Beautiful terrace with table and chairs + canopy for shade. Situated in a small village with few amenities, but an ideal base for exploring the stunning coastline of the Sinis peninsula. Owners extremely attentive, helpful + friendly. They made us feel at home from day one."
