This villa deserves 5 stars, as it's really spacious and beautifully built, with a great modern design, stylish bathrooms, comfortable beds, an amazing pool and gardens.
The owners are very kind and thoughtful and allowed us to check in earlier than the check in time. The villa has a secure gate and there is a lovely large space at the front for parking and a large barbeque area with a big table to accommodate guests. There's a comfortable sofa in the living room downstairs with a smart TV, a big table and a fully equipped kitchen. The pool has a shallow area for children and the rest is deep enough to dive in. The pool area has a gazebo with nice furniture, big loungers and a hammock, surrounded by gardens with olive trees and plants.
The location is great, only 10 minutes drive from Platamona beach, 20 min from Porto Torres, 30 min from Isola Rossa and it took us only a couple of hours to visit the entire Northern coast.
The only drawback is that we couldn't enjoy the beautiful pool as the water was too cold. We knew it wasn't heated and unfortunately the week we arrived (2nd September) the weather changed and the temperature dropped to 27 degrees outside, so the pool was about 23 degrees which was too cold for us. This is nobody's fault and the owners told us that the pool was at the right temperature until the day before we arrived as the weather was much hotter. If the owners installed a pool heating system, this villa would be a guaranteed paradise in case the weather changes, and also it could be rented in winter months (if the owners decided to).
The house is set in a quiet spot in the middle of an orchard. Stefano and his father were perfect hosts, generously encouraging us to help ourselves to the fruit, which included pomegranates, prickly pears, figs, grapes, apples, pears and others we could not identify. Also helping us with researching the activities we were interested in pursuing. They could not have been more helpful and although they did not live at the site, if we had any queries I could text Stefano and he would answer or come to the house very quickly.
