Villa Ami

Villa Ami, 3 bedrooms, one double, one twin and one single, sleeps max. 5 people.

Gorgeous recently built detached villa with private pool with salted water in the south east coast of lovely and unspoilt Sardinia. The villa is within the sought after village called 'Torre delle Stelle' which literally means the Tower of the stars after the ancient tower that dominates the whole area, and all the streets named after stars and constellations.

The villa has recently been built by my husband to a very high standard in compliance with the most recent Italian regulations in terms of health and safety. The position it occupies is particularly happy as it is at very short walking distance from the local amenities (the nearest bar, shop & restaurant are 100 m away), from the gorgeous beach (300 m away - walkable by children), and from the local park. Accommodation is on two floor and comprises of: dining living room with cooking area, guest cloakroom, 3 bedrooms & 2 shower rooms (one ensuite).

About the property

Villa Ami & Villa Dharma

I have the pleasure to offer for rent my two villas in Torre delle Stelle, in the gorgeous South East Sardinia. Both villas are 300 m away from the nearest white sandy beach, (the one you can see on the pictures). Each villa has its own private pool as well as private garden. They are both detached and presented in excellent conditions thoughout. Please note that you can do without a car as the shops and nearest restaurants are at short walking distance.

In the nearby beach you can hire water toys and take swimming lessons, you can scuba dive or snorkel or hire a small boat for exploring the gorgeous nearby coast. For the sake of clarity, please note that the first 18 pictures are of Villa Ami and its pool, then you have two pictures of the nearby beach, 13 pictures of Villa Dharma and then more pictures of the nearby beach.

I will now give you a short description of my villas and more details will be found on the dedicated page each villa has.

Villa Dharma is the villa that my husband and I purchased 10 years ago to use it as our own holiday villa. We have very many happy memories here with our children, our family and our friends. We have now moved back to the UK and we can only use the villa a couple of weeks a year so we thought 'why not let other families enjoy this little jewel?'. Since villa Dharma used to be our main residence 3 months a year when we were still living in Sardinia, it has been totally renovated and a pool has been added to it. When we had the pool built it was to entertain our children while I was working on my computer on the covered veranda overlooking the pool. Please note that the water in the pool is salted which means healthier... Villa Dharma can comfortably accommodate 6 people as it has two double bedroom and a third bedroom with bunk beds. The master bedroom also has an ensuite shower room. All the bedroom are on the first floor and two of them have French doors to a panoramic terrace. The third bedroom can be accessed both from the inside and from the outside as it has it own independent entrance. On the ground floor we have a delightful dining living room with fireplace, a kitchenette and a third shower room. Both the living area and the kitchenette have direct access to the covered veranda with built in barbecue that during the summer becomes our open air dining living area as it is very spacious, light and shady. The veranda overlooks the pool and the mature garden. We also have an outside shower as well as off street parking.

Villa Ami has been built by my husband 4 years ago. It shares the entrance gate with Villa Dharma but they both have their own swimming pool with salted water and their own garden. They are therefore completely independent from each other. Villa Ami is also on two floors, it is very private and like villa Dharma very well furnished. The ground floor is a a spacious open space with dining area, living area and cooking area, we also have a guest cloakroom with washing machine. Two French doors lead directly to the outside paved area and overlooks the pool so that your children can play in it while you do your own things such as reading with a glass of good wine in your hands. On the first floor we have 3 bedrooms (one double with en suite shower room, one twin and a single bedroom). All the bedrooms have their own balcony overlooking the pool and the surrounding greenery... There is also a family shower room.

In the garden there is an outside shower and a built in barbecue. Villa Ami comfortably accommodates 5 people, a couple with 3 children.

Please let me know if you have any more question and I would be more than happy to answer them!

Torre delle Stelle is the perfect place for exploring the gorgeous South East Sardinia, but also for a relaxing holiday...

About Angela Fanunza

My name is Angela and I am married with Karim. We have lived in the UK, where both our two children (now 17 and 19) were born, for a long time and we just loved it. 9 years ago we decided to move back to Sardinia as we were missing the sun and my family too much as I am originally from South Sardinia. 20 years ago, before our children were born, Karim and I went on a tour in Torre delle Stelle and simply fell in love with the uniqueness of this enchanting environmentally protected area. Shortly afterwards we purchased our first villa in the village which we started to let straight away as our use of it was limited to only 3 weeks a year. Given the success we had with the rentals, we decided to invest more in Torre delle Stelle and purchased villa Dharma, a few years later Karim built Villa Ami. I have to be honest my contribution was minimum, he has done a great job all by himself.

Angela Fanunza purchased this villa in 2010

Why Angela Fanunza chose Torre Delle Stelle

As mentioned in the 'About you' section, I did not buy Villa Ami, my husband built it according to the latest building and safety regulations. The villa was in fact built 6 years ago and everything, electricity, water and etc is fully certified. The property is therefore practically brand new and since it was built it has been regularly maintained to the highest possible stadard. It has been built bearing in mind what a family would normally want when renting a villa on which to spend a holiday. The villa also has the rare benefits of being at walking distance to a gorgeous sandy beach, walking distance to bars, cafes and restaurants, walking distance to play area and last but not least a private pool with salted water on which the children can play while the parents read, sunbathe, or enjoy a glass of good wine either from the terrace or from the living area without losing sight of their children. Villa Ami is all this and you can definitely do without a car as many of our past guests did.

Torre delle Stelle is perfect for families with young children, the villa is child friendly and the beach which is literally at 300 m (walkable) away is absolutely gorgeous and the perfect setting for making friends. Most owners are professionals from Cagliari that spend their summers and their weekends in their villas so there is a sense of community that adds to the loveliness of the area. Pretty much everything food-wise is available to buy in Torre delle Stelle again at short walking distance, around 100 m. In Cagliari there are two amazing markets where you can buy all sorts of seasonal fruit and vegetables, fresh fish, meat, home made bread and cakes and etc. It is a real feast of colours and lovely aromas, as well as a good chance to meet the locals going about their daily routine. Cagliari herself deserves a day, the beautiful old part called 'Castello' (Castle) is set in the most elevated part of the town and offers staggering views of the entire Gulf of Cagliari.

What makes this villa unique

Real walkable distance to a sandy beach: 300 m.

100 m away from shops, restaurants and cafe.

Villa Ami was recently built with private swimming pool with salted water and total privacy.

Villa Dharma was recently renovated and has its own swimming pool with salted water.

No need for a car.

Safe environment.

Air conditioning.


Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Angela, we had a fabulous time at villa Ami. The four of us had had a very hectic few months before our holiday in Sardinia, and the villa was the perfect place for complete relaxation and peace. I don't think we've ever been so lazy! I loved the privacy, and the only decisions we had to make were whether to stroll to the beach or not, and whether to eat out or cook in. We had no regrets about not hiring a car, just ploughed through our holiday reading in peace.

All in all, a really special place.

Many thanks

Beautiful villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week at Villa Ami (with our 2 teenagers and a 10 year old) and we are sad to be home. The villa is well decorated with two lovely shower rooms and a pool and terrace that is secluded with plenty of shade for those of us that burn easily! We loved the location - 50 m to a supermarket that stocks all you could possibly need, pizzeria, fishmonger and bar (great ice cream selection) and a short walk to a gorgeous beach. It's so close you don't need to worry if you've forgotten anything. And the villa has beach umbrellas for use too. Thank you Karim and Angela for a wonderful holiday.

Villa Ami is fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Ami is well appointed, well maintained and scrupulously clean. The location is ideal being in the heart of Torre delle Stelle and only moments from the beach, shops and restaurants. Surprisingly for such a convenient location. the villa is completely secluded by the surrounding vegetation enabling you to enjoy the terrace and the pool to its fullest extent. Although we went in the middle of June, the beach was exceptionally busy at the weekend, less so on the weekdays.

Angela and Karim were most helpful especially as, at the last minute, our daughter had to stay with us for a few days. I would definitely recommend to friends and relatives.

Beautiful property in a most relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Villa Ami, allowed us for the first time to spend two weeks without needing to go anywhere - just swimming in the pool or from the beautiful beach five minutes away, lying reading by the pool and having a barbecue every day. A great advantage is the little supermarket a couple of doors away with fresh bread, meat and fish. Plus beach bars and pizzerias close by. The property is beautifully presented and offers absolute privacy. It's difficult to describe quite how relaxing our stay was - a really refreshing break in the sun.

A Little Piece of Tranquill Heaven !

  • 5 of 5

People say you shouldn't visit a place twice. How wrong they are !! We went back to Villa Ami this year after a very enjoyable week last year. This year seemed even more special as we were familiar with the beautiful surroundings. We were greeted with a big smile from Angela who greeted us with warmth. Our two boys remembered the Villa and settled in straight away. We were even greeted by familiar faces at the local store and restaurants. This is the place if you want to just Chillout and enjoy the local foods and beaches. The Villa is clean, quiet, fresh and relaxing. Highly recommended.

Car: not necessary

Torre delle Stelle is situated on the South-East coast of Sardinia 35 km away from Cagliari, Sardinia's main town, and its airport. The village is environmentally protected and its beauty has been enchanting visitors since it was created 30 years ago to the point that it has now become one of the most sought after areas of South Sardinia. Torre delle Stelle has 2 easily accessible sandy beaches, Genn'e Mari and Cannesisa and a few sandy and rocky coves that can be reached by boat. There are shops, restaurants, bars and pizzeria at short walking distance. However, since Torre delle Stelle is only partly inhabited all year round the shops and restaurants are not open every day of the year. However the main food shop is opened (7 days a week) starting from mid May and up to the end of October. The restaurant is opened at weekends only until June. For the rest of the year the food shop and bar nearby are open from Friday to Sunday included. It is therefore possible to stock up with groceries and food, or else go to the supermarket on the way to Cagliari which is a 15 minutes drive away. Beach bars are open from June to September due to local regulations. The nearby beach is absolutely gorgeous and the sea is very safe for children. I have been holidaying here since my youngest child was 6 months old and my eldest 3 and I still believe that it would have been difficult to find a better location. My son enjoys fishing on the rock formation which is right at the end of the beach, and snorkelling and scuba diving are a real delight. There is also a scuba diving school in Torre delle Stelle which is ideal for anyone looking to learn to scuba dive but also for those of you that have already practiced this sport and would like to have an excursion organized for you. There is a war ship 1.5 miles away from the beach, and 56 m down the sea that can be visited by expert scuba divers. Thanks to its position Torre delle Stelle is the area of Sardinia that enjoys the longest summer to the point that it has its own micro climate. Other amenities in the village include: diving centre, tennis courts, football and basketball grounds, playground.
