We chose this villa because of the views and the sunsets, and it was better than we expected. The sunsets were amazing and the surroundings are very peaceful, with the feeling that you are in the middle of nowhere, exactly what we needed for a relaxing time. Children loved the pool! Villa has everything what you need, plenty of beach towels, beach toys for kids etc. The beds are very comfortable with nice crispy white bedding. Bosa (the nearest town) is very nice for a stroll through the cobbled little streets with lovely restaurants and ice-cream shops. You definitely need a car if you want to travel around and see the island as there is plenty to see around. Communication from Paul and Una was great, we got response very promptly every time we needed anything. We would definitely love to come back one day there!

                                                                                                      4 of 5

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!
