About the property

4 bedrooms to sleep 8, 3 bathrooms, wifi, air conditioning, magnificent view

VILLA FRANCESCA is situated on the summit of a hill that is part of a promontory between Palau and Santa Teresa di Gallura which is a piece of Italian paradise. The Villa faces the splendid sea of Sardinia an amazing windsurfing destination. The property is immersed in greenery interrupted only by granite rocks and little villages and farms. The sea is visible from several areas of the villa, and particularly enchanting is the breathtaking view of La Maddalena Island offered from a special part of the garden and from the pool and lounge area: you will have to see to believe.

Surrounded by acres of land, the villa is located in a safe and guarded environment in a private estate where other villas are located and it offers large external terraced areas, including the patio above the swimming pool overlooking the woods, the rocks and the sea. Alfresco dining, especially with freshly grilled items from the stone barbeque, is a pure delight in this vibrant natural setting. When it’s time to cool off, you can jump from the springboard into the fresh waters of the swimming pool with an amazing cliff side view. Indoors, you will find other amenities including satellite TV, a fully equipped kitchen, a fireplace for the rare and coolest nights and Internet access.

The indoor living area overlooking the pool and the outside living area has big French windows leading to the garden offering gentle light to the interiors and the feeling of being living in the nature at all time. One of the bedrooms and its ensuite bathroom is only accessible from the exterior and is situated attached to the villa. 8 guests are welcome, including children. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, electric oven, microwave, ring stoves. freezer and refrigerator, kettle, american and italian coffee makers and toaster. Tv has international channels. Air conditioning is in each bedroom and the living and dining areas. Pool size is 6 metres x 12 metres and has shower.

Located in the Santa Teresa di Gallura and Maddalena region, this villa is close to a number of beaches. The geographical position of Porto Rafael (20 to 25 mins by car) allows access, by a short boat trip, to all the islands of the Archipelago Della Maddalena, a strictly protected marine park.

The villa is a short drive from several different beaches where you can swim in the island’s famously clear water such as Spiaggia di Rena Bianca, Capo Testa, Santa Teresa di Gallura, Cala Spinosa, Rena Majori, La Liccia, La Marmorata and Talmone. And the Olbia area is well worth exploring, from the gorgeous Costa Smeralda and chic resort of Porto Cervo to the historic town of Olbia itself.

About Mrs Sonia

Hallo everyone! My name is SONIA and I am from Lucca. I run my Lucca Holiday Rentals company that offers exceptional apartments in the heart of Lucca. My goal is to help you fall in love with Lucca – to discover, explore, taste and savor new sights and experiences in this incredible city.

My company began almost 10 years ago when I started to rent my family villa after my parents moved to the mountains when they got retired. I spent there my entire childhood and I grew up there in deep contact with the nature and the history. My father thaught me everything about the birds and the antique trees and flowers of the villa and the smell of the sizzling pans used to wake me up each Sunday morning after my mum started to cook! I was fascinated by her when she was telling me the history of the villa in the past century. I thought this kind of feelings are too precious to let them go so then I had the idea to share my love of Lucca and “la dolce Vita” by finding beautiful apartments , villas and farmhouses in my favorite Lucca neighborhoods among my family members properties. Lucca Holiday Rentals started out as a boutique family company and now there are over 15 people working together. We are a friendly and enthusiastic team who will assist you every step of the way, from your first enquiry to your arrival in Lucca.

Mrs Sonia purchased this villa in 2017

an inspiring place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Francesca for a week early April, which was the perfect time to visit Sardinia. We really enjoyed our stay at the Villa, a representative of Mrs Sonia welcomed us super friendly and had a lot of good tips for us. The house is very cute, especially the garden and the view of the sea is so beautiful. We loved to have breakfast or lunch on the terrace close to the pool. Shops and groceries and supermarket within a 10 mins drive away and amazing restaurants in Santa Teresa di Gallura. We can definitely recommend this luxury villa to anyone planning to visit Sardinia.

Sardinian paradise

  • 5 of 5

The place is great and very much like at the photos. Amazing view of the sea and the mountains. The pool and outdoors are wonderful. It's very quiet and relaxing and it was great to find such a manicured place to spend our holidays. Sonia was a great host and made us feel welcomed. We had a 5* stay.

Beautiful one of a kind experience. Great service

  • 5 of 5

From the city, to the location/view, to the service of the owner/staff this place exceeded all expectations! When others are coming to your area to get pictures of the sea, cliffs & sunsets u know you’ve found the spot to be. We were met by a bell boy who took our bags & us to our “home” and the gentle lady who met us there to greet/orient us, both absolutely kind and reliable. The home quaint, stocked and perfect, yet still needing some brief instructions on where/ how to use things to have ur perfect stay. Sardinia is truly a slice of heaven, beautiful in every way. People so friendly, food yummy & taverns/wineries fun. This home and trip is worth every penny! Thank you Mrs Sonia and staff for making our stay so perfect.
