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 Oristano province

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

What makes this villa unique

Large private grounds

large outdoor swimming pool

15 minutes drive to the nearest beach-

4 bedrooms

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

2 Families at il Frutetto

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the holiday home for 2 weeks and it was a great set up.

There are actually 2 homes on the same property which worked really well for us as 2 families - 5 kids and 4 adults.

The pool and outside area was fantastic - the kids were entertained and we ate out for every meal every day we were there.

Francesco and Simona were really helpful and Leigh responded quickly to any emails or questions we had.

Hire a car when you stay - Scano di Montiferro is 10 mins drive and really good for fresh bread in the morning (get there before 7:15am) and the nearest town Bosa is 30 mins drive with Euro Spin and Super Pan supermarkets for all other groceries.

Beaches and countryside were beautiful and the seafood and restaurants were great.

I'd definitely recommend a holiday at il Frutetto in Sardegna.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay, we spoke several times when you inquired about Il frutetto it is ideal for large groups. It is an advantage having the 2 buildings it gives everyone 'plenty of space' especially those 'teenage children' and the new pool area is a great space for 'soaking up the sun' or 'dipping' to cool off. Thanks for the 'Tip' on the bread, I must admit it's a bit early for me, but their bread in wonderful. You do need a car, it's the only way to see the 'true beauty' of Sardinia. The villa is surrounded by unspoiled villages with narrow cobbled streets, houses painted with amazing art and many traditional restaurants to enjoy. The beaches are within a relaxing and picturesque drive of the villa and we have cool boxes/bags for the picnic. Last but not least - Yes Francesco and Simona are excellent agents and their contact details are part of the welcome pack, I am in constant touch with them and I am always available by email, tex or mobile phone. many thanks for your review kind regards Leigh Warriner

A great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just arrived back from this villa where we stayed for a week with a group of friends. The location was ideal for exploring the West Coast Beaches - our favorite being Bosa Marina.

The villa was clean and well equipped. The garden was family friendly and had a very relaxing ambiance. We enjoyed several BBQ's in the alfresco dining area, which was the perfect way to end a long day exploring the local beaches. The outside dining area was so relaxing and definitely a high light of the villa. The house was spacious enough for our group, and the use of two bathrooms made getting ready for days out a lot quicker! Although the villa isn't air conditioned the mosquito nets on the windows created plenty of breeze when open at night.

We found friendly bars in Scano Di Montiferro, as well as a pizza takeaway which was enjoyed by us all with a few beers back at the villa!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this villa and would definitely recommend for people who want a peaceful, relaxing stay but with plenty to do and explore a short drive away. We hope to return again next year!

Owner's Response: hello, many thanks for posting your review and happy all was enjoyed. A car is essential in Sardinia but many places are only a short journey away from the villa the nearest beach is only 15 mins away. Glad you found the villa was well equipped and clean, our service from our agent Simona is very good we are in touch with her most weeks. The 'Alfresco dining' is a high light when ever or what ever you eat and drink, its a chance to chat, relax and have a glass or two!. We now have the new pool, landscaped garden and large patio area, I must admit when it was finished I was absolutely amazed with it - the whole garden has been transformed - we hope you will enjoy it. we look forward to next visit. kind regards Leigh Warriner

Owner's Response: Hello, many thanks for your review and I am very pleased you all enjoyed our villa. The villa is well equipped for small or large groups and the new pool and garden area is spacious, safe and very relaxing for all the family. Guests update our visitors book with information and tips on places/restaurants to see and visit.There are plenty of places to visit, the roads are very quiet , this makes sight seeing and discovering new beaches very easy. The local village Scano di montiferro offers a good supermarket, bars, restaurant and take away pizza and the locals are very welcoming. Next time you must try the agritorismo restaurant (the farm track next to the villa) they serve lovely traditional Italian food with plenty of wine for just 25 euros. The owners are very welcoming and they take bookings by email before you go on holiday. we look forward to your next stay with us. kind regards Leigh Warriner

Plenty of space with everything you need plus more

  • 5 of 5

We had a thoroughly relaxing 7 day holiday in the 2 villas. Both ourselves and our grown up children and friends had an amazing stay and look forward to doing it again. The Agriturismo restaurant 1/2 mile down the track is a must but beware it is not necessary to eat for at least 2 days beforehand and only red wine is served. Although the villas are in a quiet location this suited us all. The river and large picnic area plus the local church are only 200 metres down the road. Bosa is a lovely old town with a beach about 1 km away with an abundance of good restaurants. Further afield is Alghero which we all fell in love with. Close to the sea again with an abundance of good restaurants and plenty to see in its array of narrow streets. Try the little train or horse drawn carriage, specially if you have young children.

Owner's Response: It's so lovely to know you have enjoyed the villa as much as we do, it is ideal for large groups. The new swimming pool will be a bonus this summer it is 8 x 4 meters with a new large sun terrace, sun loungers and parasols, relaxing around the pool will be even better. The agritorismo is great fun, good value and very welcoming. There is plenty of traditional Italian food, red wine and water and if you prefer something else to drink you are welcome to take it along. It is possible to book by email before your holiday or just call in to arrange a date. The villa is a great base for exploring the west coast with its blue flag beaches, good restaurants and pretty towns - not forgetting the locals who are all very friendly and happy to chat. We look forward to welcoming you back to Il Frutteto soon. kind regards Leigh Warriner
