About Alex

We bought this amazing plot of land complete with olive trees in 2006. Six years on we have completed our villa, we are delighted to welcome you to our home on this beautiful island of Sardinia. We hope you have a wonderful holiday, full of happy memories, as we have.

What makes this villa unique

Breakfasting on the verandah is always a pleasure with its beautiful views across the valley. Relax and enjoy the natural surroundings of the Mediterranean macchia, protected by the Forestale. Spot birds of prey on the ridge behind the villa and listen for the wild boar rustling in the undergrowth in the evenings. Enjoy a glass of Vermentino as you watch the sun go down and grill some local fish fresh from the boat on the BBQ. Alternatively, head into Alghero for anything from a family pizza to the local specialities or treat yourself to a Michelin star quality dining experience. Or just have a stroll along the old city walls whilst enjoying a delicious Italian ice cream.

Superb, spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is extraordinarily spacious with plenty of room for all. It would be perfect for a large family gathering or two or three families holidaying together.

Its excellent location is a short distance out of Alghero giving the country feel with fantastic views from its hillside setting, yet is close to the town (10 mins), supermarket offering excellent fresh fish (and ice)and charcoal for BBQ amongst everything else (3 mins) and an excellent restaurant (1.5 mins). The wonderful coastline (oh that crystal clear water) and other attractions are easily accessible.

The villa is up to date with a really well equipped kitchen (with 2nd fridge freezer downstairs) and beautiful modern bathrooms. The lower floor gives a large space for kids to amuse themselves and the front garden allows plenty of safe lawn (with olive trees) to run around in. There is a large wrap around terrace with two large tables offering shade and differing views for alfresco dining in the traditional Italian way using the large BBQ. Although we were an adult party enjoying lovely weather in May, we did notice plenty of DVD's (mix of kids and adult), games and books (teen/adult), but you may like to take your own music.

The real star is the private pool built into the hillside above the house offering 180 degree views of unspoilt Italian countryside. The recent addition of maturing colourful plants around the pool makes it the perfect place to chill and have fun.

We had a fabulous time and fully intend to return.

5 star villa!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is very well equipped for a large family and very clean. It is in a great location, just a short drive to the town. There is plenty of places to eat and lots of activities to keep all ages happy. The supermarket is less than a 5 minute drive. The best part of the villa has to be the amazing pool with stunning views. Can't wait to visit again.

Idyllic Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed in this villa and it was just as delightful as I remembered but now had the addition of a beautiful newly built swimming pool set into the rock behind the house. Very spacious and well laid out, everyone had plenty of space to do their own thing. The bedrooms were all spacious and comfortable (the master suite being enormous) with 4 luxurious bathrooms. The house is surrounded by large terraces with sun and shade available at all times of day giving a real inside-outside lifestyle. Lazy days were spent on the terrace in between excursions to the glorious Mediterranean beaches or the delightful old town of Alghero which has a great choice of restaurants from casual to Michelin-starred. A wonderful, relaxing holiday which I would happily recommend.

Villa Monte Calvia is situated in a beautiful valley, just 5km from Alghero town centre and 15 minutes from the airport. The area,rich in Mediterranean macchia, including wild oak and olive trees, is protected by the Italian Forestale. It is an area which is rich in wildlife and offers beautiful views of the surrounding countryside, with a number of excellent beaches within easy striking distance. This part of Sardinia is renowned for its archaeology with Iron Age nuraghi, churches, castles and Phoenician towers, all of which are possible to visit.

Sardinia, and this particular area, offers a variety of activities.

Alghero is rich in history having been occupied by the Spanish and the town still retains its Catalan influence which is reflected in the architecture and food. Enjoy a stroll through the cobbled streets or along the original city walls. The town has an open air theatre and several art galleries. It also has the highest concentration of restaurants in Sardinia, ranging from family pizzerias to rustic trattorias to fine dining experiences. After dinner, why not enjoy a gelato as you soak up the ambience in the narrow alleyways, exploring the little shops selling local crafts and specialities such as a liqueur made from myrtle and the famous almond nougat.

Every Wednesday morning, the local market attracts hundreds of people, locals and tourists alike, offering everything from locally produced cheeses, including the famous pecorino, olives and an abundance of wonderfully fresh fruit and vegetables. It is also here that you will find souvenirs to take home- anything from items made from olive wood to traditionally designed table cloths and bedspreads.


Many wonderful beaches are found in this area, from the local lido beach within walking distance of the town centre, to Porte Conte with its calm waters, beach BBQ and pine trees providing natural shade form the summer sun. Catch the surf at Porto Ferro (kite surfing is also popular here) and if snorkelling seems too tame, then sign up for a diving adventure with one of the local dive schools. Some of the cleanest water in the Mediterranean is found in these bays affording excellent fishing opportunities and protected marine reserves ensure that it is often possible to spot dolphins.

Why not hire a rib for the day? It is possible from the harbour. What could be better than setting out early in the morning to explore tiny coves in your own boat, enjoy a pic nic lunch on board and then spend the afternoon swimming and snorkelling.

Neptune's Grotto

It is popular to take a boat trip from Alghero harbour to the sea level cave complex under Cappo Caccia. Here you will experience an astonishing collection of caves enhanced by hundreds of large stalactites and stalagmites. Boats leave regularly. It is also possible to drive to the headland at Cappo Caccia and descend the 656 steps to the caves entrance-just remember to buy your ticket at the top first!

Other attractions

There is a Go karting track near the airport. Horse riding, walking and hiking are also popular in the National Park of Cappo Caccia. For those wanting to relax and be pampered, many of the local hotels offer a variety of spa treatments.

Sassari, Sardinia's second most populous city, is just a 30 minute drive from Alghero offering excellent shopping, museums and archaeological sites.
