About Leigh Warriner

We live in the Cotswold with our grown up children. The area is full of wonderful places to visit, charming little villages as well as trendy up market towns.

Italian life is wonderful living life to the full !!.We were inspired with Sardinia when on holiday in 2004 and decided to search for the ideal villa for our family holiday home. We fell in love with the west coast and all the beautiful beaches.

Family life is very special,having fun and spending time together is priceless,

we hope families and friends enjoy our second home is in Sardinia as much as we do.

Leigh Warriner purchased this villa in 2005

Why Leigh Warriner chose Scano di Montiferro

We love the west coast with its wonderful beaches and very relaxed way of life. It is very accessible from the 3 Major airports, Algerho being the closest. After viewing several properties we came across Il Frutetto, in total need of renovation but a good location, 15 minutes from the coast and busy towns offering good restaurants, culture, bars and night clubs.

Although we had lots of work to renovate it, we designed the villa

to suit couples or large families/friends.

We fell in love with the terrace and the original outdoor table and have updated it with tiles and modern finishes and built a wooden pagoda so the vines and roses still grow over and give lots of shade.

The villa has the best of both worlds, enjoying the coast, towns and villages but coming home to the calm and tranquil setting.

The stars and silence at night are amazing and not forgetting the pool for a last minute dip, the garden has wonderful lighting at night.

In the same hamlet a church, tennis courts, park, restaurant , local spring water and stunning water falls.

The villa is large enough to sleep 9 people. The large garden is secure for children with plenty of space for them to play. The swimming pool is a great size 8 meters x 4 meters with a good size patio around

Guestbook comments from the owner

We were pleased to find the villa very well equiped, the interiors beautiful and contempory.

The people in the Agritorism (just next door) welcomed us with a glass of wine, the food

was traditional italian cooking. If you want to eat there you need to book in advance

it was great not to have to cook.

The villa was an excellent location for exploring the west coast and visiting some of the local villages, where all the locals like to stop and chat.(italian only)

Although we are not BBQ people, we did enjoy eating outside on the big outdoor table,

very romantic if you are on your own.

We would recommend the villa and wouold be an excellent place for a large family/group to stay.

lovely Villa in beautiful Sardinia

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from our stay at this Villa in Sardinia and wanted to pass on our comments to anyone thinking of staying here.

The Villa although split into two buildings was ideal for our holiday especially as we were two families together and split ourselves between the two villas. Both Villas were very clean, spacious and well equipped for our stay with modern appliances and comfy beds. The pool area was perfect for the children to cool off and splash around in and their was plenty of sun lounging furniture for the lazier adults. The badminton net was a nice addition as well as a couple of board games for the children when they needed to cool off. The large table became a special favorite for eating and chatting during our evening meals

The area surrounding the Villa is stunning. From the walking distance of the local Church and park of St Anticio to the local towns of Sagama and Tinnura and the backdrop of the mountains the setting is beautiful. Bosa is a lovely town with several nice places to eat and drink and to sit around the main square (Sardinians like watching the world go by) The beaches of Bosa Marina and around Cape Manu (Both within a 35 minute drive) are stunning and good seas for children to swim in with warm waters and clear seas. Also for anyone who has not been before Sardinian people are very friendly and accommodating.

You will definitely need a car to stay and explore the island. We hired a car from Alghero airport and is just over an hour although the windy roads take a little getting used to after the straight roads of the UK!

We will definitely think about returning to this Villa over the next few years and would recommend it to anyone thinking of visiting this magical island. (The pictures do not give justice to the Villa and surrounding area)

Owner's Response: I feel that It is very important to make a holiday villa into a home for guests staying to use and enjoy, nothing gives me greater pleasure than knowing guests have had a fantastic holiday. I will continue to add more to the villas ie toys,books for children and garden games for everyone, so keep the positive comments coming, it can only get better! Gav ,Entorage and friends obvoiusly had a great time and I must admit the large table under to vines( seats 10- 12 people very comfortably) is a special place for sharing moments of fun with friends and family as well as romance under the stars. Sardinia is a beautiful island, as well as the people,they are a very relaxed and happy population, but a car is an essential if you want to see and enjoy the island. Lastly I would just like to say big thank you to Gav 's family and friends for a great review and look forward to your next booking regards leigh

The area is stunning and a good location to explore the west coast.

The villa was very comfortable with a good selections of movies, wifi and a excellent ipod player, plenty of hot water for showers at all times. Most days we strolled down the lane to collect the Spring water of Sant'Antioco, the local's were often there, happy to pass the time of day, this was a lovely experience. We enjoyed the pool and games of volley ball on the lawn. We found plenty of thing to do, a good local horse ridding centre, Il Arenas golf course ( about 40 mins drive) SAGAMA a local village with fantastic paintings on the houses. Bosa town with its castle, cobbled streets, good shops and great restaurants is within easy reach.

communication with Leigh and local agent Simona was excellent, always happy to help.

We had a wonderful holiday at IL FRUTTETO and hope to return soon.

Beautiful rural tranquillity.

  • 5 of 5

Our three teenage children stayed in the second house while we stayed in the main villa. We were all very comfortable in the spacious rooms. The house was spotless and well cared-for. The pool and garden were lovely. Lots of fruit trees for those lucky enough to be there at the right time! We loved how peaceful the setting was, on a very quiet road and with no light pollution of any kind.

We found lots to do and see nearby, from bronze age nuraghic sites to gorgeous beaches to great food. Admittedly we spent a bit of time in the car every day, but obviously this is the price to pay for being away from the crowds.

House, garden and pool were all beautifully maintained. The owner was very helpful and friendly.

Our teenage children were stunned to be without wifi but we were perfectly happy for them to be away from it!

Owner's Response: thank you for a lovely review and glad you had a good holiday. Although the villa is 2 buildings it give a great advantage for more space especially for parents and teenagers. We planned to have WIFI in the villa for 2017 and it should be accessible in both buildings and garden area. The villa is in such a tranquil area, it is very relaxing way of life. To see the beauty of Sardinia you need a car - towns and beaches are all so spread out. kind regards Leigh

A lovely location and ideal for a family group

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our holiday and particularly appreciated the pleasant garden and pool area as we spent a lot of time there. The surroundings are ideal if you want to relax and enjoy the sunshine. The pool was well used for cooling down and for games of volley ball. We also managed these on dry land using the net which is also in the garden.

We found the agent and the owner most responsive and helpful. The villa is very well equipped and the outdoor dining area is great for a family group. The meal at the local agriturrissimo, just 10 minutes walk away was an amazing gastronomic experience- we loved it and went there twice. Some of our party spent days on the beach and enjoyed the quiet beaches within easy reach.

We would consider returning to the villa as a family group as it worked so well for us. One small suggestion - we would have liked cushions for the sunbeds.

Thank you for a lovely holiday .

Owner's Response: A lovely review - many thanks. Il Frutetto has plenty of space for relaxation a most important ingredient for a good holiday. The garden is gated and safe(young children), the volleyball/badminton net is new this year with our large grassed area it's great fun for team games. The Agriturismo - OURSU has a great atmosphere and offers amazing traditional food, lots of it too. The farm is very interesting, it has lovely horses and grows unusual vegetables and fruit - just a short 10 minute walk up the farm track. The local beach Port Alabe is only 20 minute drive - the countryside is stunning, along with the unspoilt sardinian villages you pass through. I note your comment about cushions for the sunbeds, I will see what is available. We would love you to return and enjoy the villa once again. We offer a 10% discount for returning groups. kind regards Leigh Warriner

This is a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

There are only a few homes nearby and a fairly busy church but apart from the that you are pretty much on your own. Nearest village is about a 10 minute drive and the large town/city of Bosa is just 25 minutes away. Stunning scenery and lots to do on your doorstep and great food. The house is lovely and actually consists of two houses. A single bedroom house with large lounge and kitchen and the second house has three bedrooms and bathroom. A large, lovely swimming pool and large garden add to the enjoyment. Sunday lunch next door at the farm (Agriturismo) was an amazing experience. Highly recommended and will certainly be going back.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your positive review and glad that you had a lovely holiday. Il Frutetto offers the best of both worlds, relaxing and enjoying the tranquil setting of the countryside but not too far away from a busier way of life. SCANO DI MONTIFERRO (nearest town/village) is famous for the historical site' Tombs of the Giants'. It also has a small but good supermarket, chemist, post office, local bars and a good pizzeria. The Agriturismo restaurant is very welcoming and serves wonderful traditional Sardinian food and plenty of it. It's possible to book a table before your holiday, its great fun there especially with a large family group of all ages. Glad to hear you may holiday again at our villa, we offer a 6% discount for guests who book a second stay at Il Frutetto. kind regards Leigh Warriner
