Grazie Enrica, sarò felice di ospitarti, tu sei stata un'ospite esemplare. Il tuo entusiasmo è gratificante, un motivo in più per migliorare la casa e i servizi. Buona estate.
Una splendida soluzione a due passi dal mare
L'appartamento è ampio, luminoso, in pieno centro dello splendido borgo.Le spiaggie , come pure il porticciolo da cui si parte per magnifiche escursioni in barca distano pochi minuti a piedi dall'appartamento e ci si può dimenticare dell'auto. Cenare a casa cucinando l'ottimo pesce acquistato nel paese o affidarsi ad uno degli eccellenti ristoranti di cucina tipica, è stata una decisione giornaliera.
L'immobile corrisponde alla descrizione, era perfettamente pulito, in ottimo stato e un'ottima collezione di libri mi ha tenuto compagnia.
Isabella, la proprietaria è stata gentilissima ed accogliente, facendoci sentire a casa.
Il rapporto qualità prezzo ottimo.
Lo consiglierei a chiunque, coppie, famiglie con bambini, voglia trascorrere in relax una splendida vacanza al mare di un angolo della Sardegna tutto da scoprire.
Grazie mille, ci auguriamo di averla di nuovo presto come nostro ospite.
extremely nice, everything you need
"I spent the long Easter weekend renting this lovely apartment in Calasetta. It was a wonderful experience, in all possible respects. The apartment is located at the heart of town and is perfect if one likes genuine atmosphere and cultural flavour. The apartment is exactly like you see in the pictures, very well furnitures and very bright. You can reach very easily the beaches by foot (5 minutes walking): very nice La Spiaggia Grande and La Spiaggia Sottotorre.
We had dinner in Ristorante Pasqualino where we had delicious see food.
Another strength of this apartment is its owner, Isabella. She is very professional and very nice and ready to help you suggesting a lot of activities to do. Also she can help you to arrange beautiful excursion by boat in the near about.
I would love to come back for summer!
Thanks for your kind words, Rossella.
It has really been a pleasure to guest you.
I’m looking forward to welcoming you again in future.
Calasetta is the second most important town of the island of Sant'Antioco and preserves the typical unchanged traits of its Genoan and Tarbarchin origins in both its traditions and characteristics. Life in the centre of Calasetta began in around 1769, when a group of Tabarkans from the island of Tabarka, (an island situated in front of Tunisia), but originally from Pegli (near Genoa), asked King Carlo Emanuele permission to populate the northern coast of the Island of Sant'Antioco, right in front of the Island of Carloforte. In fact, ever since its first period of domination on the island, the Kingdom of Savoy, had always intended to promote the repopulation of the whole of Sardinia, including the Island of Sant'Antioco, where first, colonies of Tabarkans arrived, followed by Piedmontese and finally Sicilians. The inhabited centre stands on a little hill which descends towards the port, giving the village a polygon-shape. Seen from above the centre gives an idea of extreme severity for the regularity and the order of its straight streets which intersect forming a orthogonal grid. The origins of the name Calasetta and the adjective “calasettano” give rise to a number of interpretative problems. According to Spano, it derives from “Calasgèdda”, a diminutive of “Cala”. However the oldest attestation from 1752, suggests the name of “Calasei” followed in 1754 by “Calastra” to indicate the coastal zone and “Cala di Seta” to indicate the hinterland. In 1757 “Calaseda” (Spanish) is found and finally “Calasetta” and “Cala di Seta” alternate in the first written documents referring to the village.
The Calasetta territory has numerous beaches of suggestive beauty. The coast of Calasetta is steep and rocky to the west and low and sandy to the north-east. The coastline has been fractured in three places which correspond with three marvellous beaches: "Spiaggiagrande" or "Porto Maggiore", the "Salina" and "Sottotorre” The rocky rampart to the west is of unrivalled beauty stretching to a depth of up to 10 m and contributing to the creation of striking caves and stack formations of rocks. One of the most suggestive examples of the sea’s handiwork is undoubtedly the "nido dei passeri” (sparrows’ nest) ", a pair of stack formations sticking out of the water and given this name because of the number of birds who take refuge here. Calasetta is very famous for its characteristic urban tower which appears so often in images of the village. It was built before the little town was founded, around 1737, erected by the Savoy authorities to defend the channel between Sant'Antioco and the Island of San Pietro. The tower was used to keep watch for Saracen vessels.
The village clearly lays claim to its Tabarkan origins and the language of Tabarka is spoken fluently even today. Among it many traditions there are plenty of feasts which have great charm and fascination. One of these is certainly the Feast of San Giovanni Battista, which alternates pagan rites with holy ones and involves the whole population in dancing and singing late into the night illuminated by a huge bonfire. The typical cuisine of Calasetta is no less important. Every dish combines a mixture of culinary types, where the dishes originating from Liguria bump into and meet with contributions from North-Africa, Sicily and even Sardinia: the typical dishes of Calasetta offer recipes characterised by a glorious dish of fresh tuna fish alongside the "farinate di ceci” ( a sort of savoury flan made with chick peas) and fish soup. When visiting Calasetta a stop must be made at the "Ermanno Leinardi" Museum of Contemporary Art which houses a vast collection of works by contemporary artists.
