The apartment was very spacious, the kitchen well-equipped (we even got a bottle of red wine as a welcome :) and both bedrooms and the terrace have sea view if you come closer to the window or lean over the terrace railing :). The next door blue apartment has huge sea-front terrace and I would definitely recommend asking for the blue apartment if available. The house has a big, beautiful and well maintained swimming pool plus Giuseppe let us use his kayaks, which was very nice as the sea wasn't so warm in early May and it also isn't always that still. Approx. 10-minutes drive from the house are the charming town of Bosa and its neighbour Bosa Marina. Already at the time of booking, Giuseppe sent us some ideas about possible activities and trips and we found them all nice. Thanks, Giuseppe!
