Ideal Sardinia villa overlooking scenic Porto San Paolo PSP) village and the Tavolara Marine Reserve and Mountain National Park. Within walking distance of PSP cafes and restaurants as well as PSP beach and marina, where ferry departs regularly for Tavolara island.

Due to the jagged, scenic coastline there are numerous nearby sandy beaches, including several secluded that can be reached only on foot (we provide directions!). Many of the beaches feature wide swaths of sand with shallow water that are great for families and children.

Water sports, including scuba diving, wind- and kite- surfing, fishing, seaside and mountain walking paths, golf, horse back riding are all activities on offer in the PSP area.

Olbia International airport nearby and port is only 15 kilometers away while Alghero is 1 hour 20 minutes by car.

For experienced scuba divers or those wishing to learn PSP has a diving school and shop with trips in the protected marine reserve. As no fishing is allowed in the reserve it is one of the few places in Sardinia where fish life is plentiful and coral reefs protected. There are also various nearby ship wrecks, including several from WW II. The ship wrecks offer shallow water diving experiences for beginners and deep water for veterans.

There are also dive ships in nearby Punta Aldia and Capo Cavallo.

Boats depart regularly for the Isola de Tavolara from the PSP marina. On the Tavolara island there are various beaches and restaurants. It is possible to hire a guide and trek to the top of the 550 meters (1,750 feet) peak.

Numerous exciting day-long excursions are possible from PSP, including a visit the Isola della Maddalena National Park or the spectacular cliffside village of Bonafacio on the southern tip of Corsica. Another day trips include a visit to the Cala Luna caves and coves or the Gola Su Gorropu, which is considered the ``Grand Canyon'' of Europe.

Inland from PSP there are numerous agriturismo dining experiences that include sumptuous meals featuring locally grown food and wine are served.

For those who rent the Vista Tavolara villa we provide detailed tips about our favorite restaurants, cafes, beaches and other info that includes contact details for water sports, golf and day trips.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are a Swedish family that rented the Villa Vista Tavolara for two weeks in September. We had a wonderful time. The house was very comfortable and the views of the sea and mountains were as beautiful as advertised. We very much enjoyed sitting on the porch in the evening for cocktails and dinner. We also used the barbecue gas grill regularly to cook meat and fish.

The village of Porto San Paolo is a short walk. Fortunately it has not been spoiled by tourism. There are fantastic beaches. The Isola de Tavolara is an incredible place. You can take a short ferry to the island. There are several nice restaurants and a very nice beach. The next time we come we will definitely hire a small boat to tour around the coast and visit numerous coves and hidden beaches. The owner provided us with a lot of information about places to buy food, tips about restaurants, water sports and range of other details that was extremely helpful. We use that list of details almost daily.

All in all the villa was a great place to stay for our holiday and we will definitely return.

Excellent vacation house

  • 5 of 5

For the third summer in a row we have rented the Villa Vista Tavolara, Each time we have thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The villa is spacious and perfect for our family of five. We really enjoy being able to go to a different beach every day. The village is small and not over run by tourism. We also love to walk and there are great coastal walks as well as beautiful trails in the mountains. Olbia is not far and well worth a visit. All in all a great place for a holiday.

Wonderful week

  • 5 of 5

We had a relaxing week. The views from the terrace and balcony are very special. We visited a different beach almost every day. Porto San Paolo and the various nearby villages are so refreshing as the people are friendly and they are not crowded. Isola de Tavolara is a great place to spend a day as there are secluded beaches and a nice restaurant.

The house is very comfortable, tastefully decorated and fully equipped. Every morning we sat outside in the courtyard and had breakfast in the sunshine and amongst the flowers and cactus plants. Nice.

Owners were very helpful and answered any question we had about the local area.

Private paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a week as this beautiful villa that has stunning views of the sea and mountains. We have vacationed throughout the Mediterranean and Porto San Paolo and the Isola de Tavolara offer one of the most spectacular, varied holidays we have ever had. The beaches, the diving, the walking, the dining were exceptional. The owners provided information about the area that was accurate, detailed and extremely useful. We will definitely book another week next year.

Perfect family holiday villa

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a beautiful, relaxing holiday at the Villa Vista Tavolara in Porto San Paolo. The panoramic views from the villa are stunning and it has all the comforts of home. Kitchen excellently equipped. Great terrace and barbecue. Every morning we had breakfast in the beautifully landscaped courtyard.

Porto San Paolo is a charming village. While it is purpose built for the most part it has been done with a style that suits the area and climate. Isola de Tavolara and marine reserve around it are very special.

The owner provided a wide range of information before arrived that included tips about restaurants, directions to beaches and various day trip options that were extremely helpful. This information eliminated much of the time-consuming confusion that often occurs for first-time visitors like ourselves.

Looking forward to a future visit later this year or next summer!!

Porto San Paolo

Porto San Paolo is a small seaside village with a beach, marina and small port where there is regular ferry service to Isolo de Tavolara. There are also numerous nearby beaches along the jagged coastline and hidden coves and we provide directions to them.

There are also numerous great day trips, including to the Isola della Madallena National Reserve as well as to the Corsican town of Bonifacio. Both can be reached by ferry.
