About Marilyn Wells
John and Marilyn are a retired couple who have Italian links. We fell in love with Sardinia because of its climate, fabulous beaches (the most unpolluted in the Mediterranean) and most of all because of its naivety. We turn back the clocks 50 years when we visit. We visit twice a year in March to get ready for the summer guests and in October to close it down for the winter.
Marilyn Wells purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Marilyn Wells chose Torre dei Corsari
The villa has spectacular views of the sea and mountains and is in a quiet position but near enough to bars and restaurants. It has a large garden and space for parking and we love it.

A wonderful villa with a wonderful view!
I spent a fantastic two weeks in Marilyn's beautiful villa. Marilyn couldn't have been more helpful - and her local contact Anna was absolutely lovely. The villa is even more stunning than the photos suggest and has everything you could want for in a home away from home (with the only exception being a teapot! Ha! Although it's possible I just didn't find it). The Torre dei Corsari is quite remote (as other's have pointed out) but that's one of the reasons why I booked it! I wanted peace and quiet - and that's what I got! I was there in early May (so definitely quiet that time of year) and I had rotten luck with the unusually bad weather, but even that didn't stop me from being amazed by the beauty of the area. Lots of lovely walks nearby and if you're a bird watcher - this is the area for you. Sitting on the veranda of the villa enjoying the sea view and the acrobatics of the local housemartin population was my favourite way to start and end the day. Other guests have commented on the poor wifi - but I actually had no problems with it whatsoever. It was surprisingly good, I thought! (though I wasn't streaming Netflix or videos or anything like that - just reading emails and the news online etc.) And Sardinia is very 4G connected in general - so my phone always had access to data services no matter where I was. I actually had better 4G access than I get at home in the UK! The most important thing to know: I would love to return! And if Marilyn still has her villa available for rent next year - I definitely will be returning. :-)
Thank you for your kind words. I am glad you fell in love with Torre and would be delighted if you come to our villa next year. Best wishes, Marilyn
We loved our stay; it was delightful.
Thanks to Anna who was very helpful
Nice villa with a magnificent view from a wonderful terrasse
The villa was very, very nice. We enjoyed the terrasse, it was very large, had a beautiful garden and with a stunning view.
The nearby beach, a 15 min walk, was really nice and among the best in the whole of Sardinia.
The air conditioning worked perfectly, three spacy, well equipped bathrooms, and a good kitchen.
We experienced a poor internet service. Useless actually - but was told it was as good as it could be expected in this part of Italy.
The villa is in a remote area and long drives are necessary if you want to see more of the island.
We can recommend the villa to others, we had an nice holiday.
Thank you for your honest review. As soon as Sardinia reaches the 21st century we hope to improve the internet service!!!
Stunning views from living room and terrace!
We stayed at the house in may 2017; we really enjoyed the beautiful views from the terrace garden and living room. The house itself is nice: well kept and well equipped. The kitchen has ereything you might ever need to make yourself a meal, cake, drink. Wow! The beds are okay, only the bed in the masterbedroom had a duvet. The other beds are made up with blankets; which we don't really like. But: in summer you will probably only need a sheet to sleep under ;-).
The village is a real holiday village which means it's only fully inhabited in june/july/august. Most shops and restaurants were closed when we were there. The beech is beautiful and very near. You can either walk or drive there, road is fairly steep so the walk involves a lot of stairs.
The village is a 20 mn drive from the main roads which means you always have to drive 20 mns before you can really go anywhere else. We didn't mind but will choose another village to stay in if and when we return to Sardegna. Because we probably will! Sardegna is beautiful, spacious and very clean. Especially compared to for instance Sicily.
Having said all this: the villa is beautiful and if you like going to the beach and relax during your holiday this is the prefect house for you!
Thank you for your review. It was honest and true. I am pleased that you liked Sardinia; it is a beautiful country with lovely people.
The villa has a very beautiful terrace with stunning view.
It's well furnished and equipped, close to shops and restaurants.
We can go to the beach by walk but have to clim around 90 steps to go back :-)
Thanks to Marilyn and John, the owner with whom we had excellent communication.
Thanks to Anna for her help on the 1st day of our arrival.
We strongly recommend this villa rental.
Thankyou for your glowing review. We are glad that you had a good holiday in our beautiful villa. John & Marilyn
One of the best holidays ever
Wonderful house with all you everything you need for a fantastic holiday. The most important thing for potential renters: We'll come back for sure !
All rooms are very comfortable, clean and the inventory quite new. The kitchen got every thing you might sometimes need to cook. Bathrooms and bedrooms are well appointed. We missed really nothing in the house or garden. The long sandy beach you'll reach in 10 minutes by foot - shops, bars, restaurants, etc. in less than 5 minutes. Its calm and always a breeze keeps it comfortable. Last but not least: The contact persons at sardinia were very kind and helpful.
We (and thats the opinion of very family-member) had a perfect holiday !
There are numerous beautiful beaches on the West coast of Sardinia with spectacular scenery, sand dunes and places of archaeological interest. The ancient dwellings are of particular interest and widespread. Horse riding is available at Arborea, a short distance away. We are well placed for touring some beautiful areas of the island.
