Our family of four had a wonderful time at the villa and highly recommend the experience. Everything in the villa is of the highest quality, from the dinnerware to the furniture to the tile around the property. The property itself is in among other villas but is situated in such a way that you feel really secluded. Our family spent most of our time in the pool (which is a really good size) or on the deck (which has amazing views of the sea and surrounding rock cliffs and beautiful landscaping). Another reviewer commented on the lack of WiFi and a cutting board, both of which I am pleased to say where present for our stay. Valentina the owner was very responsive and obviously cares about the quality of the stay for her visitors.
There is an amazing sand beach that is just a few minutes drive and walk along the rock cliffs that we went to a number of times. There are plenty of restaurants right in the area (2 miles away) that were good for pizzas, pasta, and local fish. There is also a good grocery store (Freshy) that is minutes away form the villa. We did a lot of cooking while we were there in the nicely furnished kitchen.
Thanks again for a wonderful stay. Highly recommended!
Great villa, lovely location but a few shortfalls.
We have rented dozens of villas all over Europe and therefore feel we know what makes them perfect. This is a great villa for two which is why we chose it however we are paying for two bedrooms for personal reasons and were therefore surprised that only one bed was made up. To be fair, an email to Valentina resulted in her bringing extra bed linen to us promptly. We were also surprised that there were no house notes detailing local information on restaurants, supermarkets, beaches, etc and where they were located. It would also have been useful to know where to find the bbq (which was in a locked store along with the washing machine).
In all other villa rentals there has been a welcome pack with the basics such as bread, milk, butter and cheese. Fortunately we arrived whilst the supermarket was still open. In the past we have sometimes been invited to pay a small charge for this which we would have been happy to do. We had a bottle of wine, a bottle of water and one toilet roll, nothing else.
No chopping board, an essential item in any kitchen. No bbq tongs making grilling a bit hazardous! No Wi-fi. Whilst of a generation where this is less important we feel a younger family might consider this a drawback nowadays. A little plastic table for the poolside would be a good idea.
Aside from these issues we had a lovely relaxing time and enjoyed the local amenities once we found them. Beautiful sunsets and staggering coastal scenery. We would certainly return.
Lovely peaceful villa, 'sunset' views, excellent location - near beautiful beaches
We had two weeks in this villa in June and loved it. It is in 'Costa Paradiso ' which is a private estate of villas on the western side of Sardinia. The villa is lovely, has a very good pool and is very well designed and well equipped. It is not overlooked and was amazingly quiet and peaceful. The villas have excellent landscaping and planting through which wild boars ( not dangerous ) occasionally trot. I think they must be on a contract to welcome visitors because we saw a mother and baby on our first day near the villa and another on the last evening. The outstanding thing is the west facing view of the sea. Sunsets every evening as you eat outside , Corsica in the distance and a sunny pool area all day. The area has beautiful beaches. The closest is a 10 minute walk along a path created through the rocky coastline. It is a very fine beach ( its on the cover of the DK guide to Sardinia) but there are fantastic beaches all along the coast. Good for swimming and snorkelling. You need a car to visit this area but the roads are good and small tracks to the beaches are politely shared by all. Costa Paradiso has a restaurant by the water, some shops and a small supermarket so you can get all you need there but there are good places to visit within a short drive (Castelsardo, Santa Teresa) . Would recommend the boat trip from Santa Teresa around the La Madellana archipelago ( though maybe not for the onboard lunch …!) and you have to visit a nuraghe. The weaving museum at Castelsardo is .. unusual … and there are great views from the castle. Anyway, lots to recommend this villa and location - one we would go back to.
Amazing views lovely villa
Great place to stay fantastic view great pool
Beautiful villa with stunning setting.
Excellent, well maintained, immaculate property, just as it looked in the photos. Very good customer service before, during and after the holiday.
Stunning sunsets at this time of year. Lovely walk to the beach and beyond.
Alghero & Castelsardo etc all beautiful. Local residents (wild boar) visited most evenings, very amusing. Wonderful holiday. We didn't make much use of local facilities; too busy sight seeing. I would not hesitate to recommend this property.
A bit like paradise at Costa Paradiso
We, a Family of 4, stayed one week in this villa and it was just great! We loved the pool, the views, the wild boar with family, the house with its equipment.... everything was perfect and a bit like 'paradise'.
Situated on the north coast of Sardinia between Castelsardo and Santa Theresa di Gallura, Costa Paradiso is found along the coast road that runs along the north coast of Sardinia, a few kilometers from the junction to Isola Rossa and about 12 km south of the resort of Portobello.
Costa Paradiso is a private community known for the wildness of its land, beautiful granite rock formations and for the beauty of the Sardinian crystalline sea, bordered by sandy coves and beaches.
The villas in Costa Paradiso have been designed to fit in with the natural landscape and the majority benefit from stunning sea views.
Costa Paradiso is a holiday village, with many facilities and amenities, situated approx. 25 minutes drive from Isola Rossa (a peaceful beach town) and from Trinita D’agultu (a typical Sardinian mountain village), where there is an all-year market every Monday.
The best local beach in Costa Paradiso, Li Cossi, is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island of Sardinia and can be accessed by a short walk along the headland from the dive school.
Also discover the nearby beaches of Costa Tinnari (a stunning double arch shaped beach with rock walls) and La Marineda (stunning sandy beach with restaurant facilities and water sports).
In Costa Paradiso you will find restaurants, bars, supermarkets and shops, as well as entertainment with disco and piano bar, tennis courts, water sports, such as surfing, sailing and diving.
Ideally located for both airports, Costa Paradiso is a short drive from Alghero (Ryanair) and Olbia (Easy Jet), the journey takes about 90 minutes by car, along panoramic coastal roads, and when you arrive - find yourself in a true paradise.
