This is your chance to rent this exclusive Sardinian family villa, located in a quiet bay on the edge of the sought-after Costa Smeralda region of this beautiful Mediterranean island. Set in a sleepy bay beside Porto Istana, a 15 minute drive from the port town of Olbia in Sardinia's Costa Smeralda region, this traditional family villa sits in approximately two thirds of an acre of grounds and is the perfect, private getaway for a nice, long and relaxing break. The garden stretches right down to the beach from where you get stunning views of the bay, or if you wish you can simply climb the rocks behind the house and watch the sun set over the islands. The location and character of this villa make it truly unique and a special way to spend a week with your family or friends. See our website for more photos and details.

About Alessandra Sturani
This house belongs to my mum, my brother and I we have had it since I was born!
Alessandra Sturani purchased this Villa in 1970
Why Alessandra Sturani chose Porto Istana
We are emotionally very attached to this house and we try and cover it's costs in order to be able to keep it!! The villa is remote, quiet, has a beautiful safe beach for children and was perfect for us when our two children were young. These days it is our retreat in the summer months from the bustle and heat of Milan.

Had most amazing week in a stunning location. The villa was exactly as described - so beautiful. Loved easy access to beach and spacious shady verandah. Approach road a bit bumpy but had no problems with it. Would love to return one day!
Special interest holidays:
Diving is very popular and there is an excellent diving centre at Porto San Paulo, across the bay (about a 15 minute drive).
Tennis courts and football pitches are available at the nearby Park Hotel. The whole east coast of Sardinia offers some excellent spots for kitesurfing and windsurfing. We also have Le Saline, 5-10 minutes by car.
Even away from the coast, the scenery is stunning with plunging valleys, forested slopes and mountain ranges. An extraordinary history; across the landscape are scattered 7000 nuraghi, curious temples Domus de Janas, tombe dei giganti and remains of entire bronze age village. Phoenicians, Carthaginians and finally Romans landed here, leaving their mark in Nora and Tharros. The northwest is strewn with Pisan-Romanesque chruches, and Cagliari and Alghero retain a palpable Spanish feel.
Pieds dans l'eau. The villa is literally on the beach!
