Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Oristano province - VILLA OLIVETTO

4 Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, large 1 bed

The property is designed as a large spacious 4 bedroomed Villa. The villa has 2 bedrooms, double with its own balcony & a twin, both with on-suites on the first floor & a lounge leading out onto expansive sun terrace, with a hot tub, overlooking the valley with stunning views across the valley to the sea. On the ground floor there are 2 further twin bedrooms with shared bathroom and spacious dinning/kitchen. Insect screens are fiitted to the bedroom windows. There are both internal & external stairs to the first floor. For winter weeks the house is heated with a wood burner in the first floor lounge.

The main sun terrace is paved in the classic local Bosa stone and offers an extensive area for sun bathing and relaxing with the separate lower spa terrace and BBQ with good range of furniture.

Last summer an outside cooking/bar was added to the BBQ area, which has 4 burner gas hob, single drainer sink and fridge with a large tiled top for outside eating and drinking.

Outside there are two spa pools cool or warm as you desire to chill in the sunshine or relax in the evening looking out over the magnificent views across the valley to the sea. Watch the Sardinian sunset from your warm spa tub with a glass of local wine, is a truly memorable experience

Why Steve or Helen Woodhouse chose Oristano province

When we first visited the olive grove in 2005 and saw the natural lie of the land and the 180 degree stunning views and dramatic sunsets looking across the valley towards the coast, decided us to build a holiday home. The house was built to our design in conjunction with a local architect/builder and took 18 months to complete.

The Villa, although situated on the edge of the village in a quiet area you do not feel isolated. In the spring, the wild flowers are so colourfull, one of favourite times to visit Sardinia. The Villa is bathes in sun from dawn to dusk throughout the summer, with the olive trees adding additional shade,

Villa Olivetto

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding holiday! Villa Olivetto was exactly as advertised, beautiful home in a great location. The customer service was great via direct contact and through the use of the helpful guide provided at the Villa. The extra effort of the property managers gave the holiday a special touch. Their knowledge of the local area and personalities gave us a catered feeling during our stay. Its location makes it an easy drive to most locations in Sardinia. We highly recommend a stay at the Villa and have recommended it to several friends. A nice relaxing location with a short drive to Bosa and beaches for all of your needs. A great location from which to enjoy all that Sardinia has to offer.

Villa With Stunning Views

  • 5 of 5

This really is a villa with spectacular views - Especially from the hot tub. The location is very quiet and peaceful, but you do need a car to get to the beach and the supermarket at Bosa (there's a great strip of sandy beach at Bosa Marina). The Villa is fully equiped and has a BBQ on the large terrace - perfect for an evening in !

There are a couple of good restaurants locally - one up in the town (10 mins walk) and the other a 5 minute drive (or 15- 20 min walk down the main road). The fish at Riccardo's Trattoria in the village was excellent & Angelino made a great host on the night we were at his restaurant.

A car is essential for getting around, but if you want a villa wher you can sit on the balcony in rural peace and quiet at the end of the day this is a perfect place to do it!

Villa Olivetta - Review by Kelly/Bannister Party

  • 5 of 5

Excellent modern, clean, spacious holiday villa with spectacular views. The hot and cold tubs are fantastic - better than a pool! Very quiet and peaceful location, yet only minutes from the beach and busy little tourist area of Bosa Marina with its long stretch of beach and many restaurants and bars. Also close to the delightful town of Bosa. And the old town of Alghero is a very pleasant 40 minute drive away.

There are lots of restaurants. Our favourites being Riccardo's in the village of Magomadas (within walking distance) and Don Angelino's (a kilometre or so down the road). The fresh fish in Riccardo's is mouth-watering but my personal favourite was the pasta with prawns and courgettes. It looks pretty plain at first but is absolutely delicious. Also a must for dessert is the Seadas. It's a hot pecorino cheese pasty smothered in Riccardo's own honey. Sounds unusual but if you have a sweet tooth it's amazing. Don Angelino's is brilliant for the atmosphere and the geniality of the host. The pizza and fish are pretty good too. If you want to eat in Gigi's takeaway pizza place in Tresnuraghes (the next village - almost within walking distance) is highly recommended.

A couple of things to note:-

1) A car is a must

2) Everything shuts at about 1:00pm and does not re-open until about 5:00pm (apart from the bigger supermarkets) so don't go into Bosa or Alghero expecting to look around the local shops at this time.

Villa Olivetto, super Domizil

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren vom 24.05.2014 bis 31.05.2014 in der Villa Olivetto / Magomadas.

Mit 8 Erwachsenen Personen und 6 Motorrädern. In der Villa ist ausreichen Platz, 4 Schlafzimmer, 3 Bäder incl. 3 Toiletten. Küche mit Kühlschrank und 4 Koch/Gasplatten. Der Ausenbereich ist sehr großzügig, mit Grill (wobei wir einen Grillrost bauen mussten damit für 8 Mann Steaks passen !!). Auch am Grill 4 Koch/Gasplatten. Highlight natürlich die Whirlpools..wobei wir nur eines nutzten da dort auch 8 Personen Platz haben.

Für Selbstverpfleger ist ein Auto ein muss...unser Supermarktfavorit in Bosa der Simply Markt.

Die Villa Olivetto ist insgesamt ein super Objekt dass wir jederzeit weiterempfehlen können.

Bosa Marina
Car: recommended

Magomadas is a small hillside village with a shop, restaurant,museum and church, 10 minutes from the coast and the historic market town of Bosa and beautifull beaches of Bosa Marina.

Bosa is set on the banks of the River Temo, the only navigable river in Sardinia; its origins go back to Phoenician times. The old historical town, with its brightly painted houses, spreads up the side of the hill away from the river and is topped by the Malaspina Castle. The walk through the narrow cobbled street leading up to the castle is well worth the effort. The views from here encompass the whole of Bosa and Bosa Marina, the river to the sea. Bosa has many pavement bars and cafes, as well as shops where you can buy many examples of local and traditional crafts,museums, churches and a cathedral.

A short drive from Bosa is the seaside resort of Bosa Marina. The main attraction here is the long, wide strip of gently shelving beach leading into crystal clear water. Here, not only will you find a variety of beach bars, restaurants and shops but also there are facilities for many water sports.

Other Activities: Golf 30 minutes
