A traditional Sardinian home with wonderful views
The property is full of character with generous sized bedrooms and bathrooms and a comfortable bed. The lounge/dining/kitchen area overlooks a valley and has panoramic views which include the view of the nearby village of Aritso. The lounge has a convenient small bistro table where we sat and drank coffee and wine with a dining table that was well placed for enjoying the gorgeous views. The kitchen area is just that, a small area with a two-ring gas hob, microwave, sink, dishwasher and fridge-freezer. The kitchen was adequate. The nearby main road was pretty quiet and no impediment to enjoying the peace and quiet of the countryside. Angelo was charming, welcoming and had a great sense of humour. To get the best communication with him (unless of course you speak Italian which to our shame, we didn't), WhatsApp is the preferred communication method.
The garden was overgrown because of recent heavy rain but that didn't stop us enjoying the numerous butterflies and wild flowers that live there in abundance. The pool was well maintained by Angelo.
It is a 10 minute walk into Aritzo where you will find several local stores, bars and a particularly good Pizza restaurant called S'Iscriscione Ristorante Pizzeria who also do very nice pasta dishes but often don't have some of the meat and fish shown on their menu. Many restaurants close on Mondays and S'Iscriscione kept rather irregular hours trending towards eating later (after 20:00) !!
The surrounding countryside is breathtaking and the roads are generally very good indeed but be aware that your sat-nav is likely to take you down some VERY narrow cobblestone streets with sharp corners and numerous badly parked cars making passage even more interesting!!
We had a fantastic time and highly recommend this cottage.
Quirky, rustic retreat in the heart of the mountains
Angelo was a most welcoming host, who helped us out quite a few times before and during our stay (usefully he lives in Aritzo, so very handy if needed). We were thankful of his basic English as we didn't speak any Italian.
The house was exactly as described, and we most enjoyed the twin panoramic windows, from which you can see the sunrise and sunset across the town and surrounding valleys. We came for the walking, which was stunning even from the door (Sunflower and Cicerone books recommended). The town is 10 minutes easy walking from the house, has a few shops and eateries, and everyone we met was friendly even in the remotest parts.
We left most satisfied with our authentic Sardinian experience!
Molte grazie Kathleen per le belle parole ! Siamo veramente felici che la vacanza nella nostra casa sia stata davvero bella. E’ stato un piacere parlare con voi…….(in Inglese ed in Italiano !!!!). Abbiamo lavorato tanto per trasformare e rendere lo Chalet Su Foxile un sogno e cerchiamo di migliorarci pensando a cosa l’ospite vuole per trascorrere una vacanza gradevole e possibilmente indimenticabile. Abbiamo cercato di costruire un’atmosfera piacevole , autentica e possibilmente di rottura dallo stress quotidiano , garantendo un sufficiente livello di privacy
Lovely house in beautiful quiet location.the house has 2 nice bedrooms with ensuites and the living area gives super views over the valley.kitchen is basic but functional,we used the outdoor fantastic BBQ and ate outdoors as well.village is a short walk and is very friendly.bars are plentiful .the pizzeria la dada is good value and has good food with nice staff.there is a nice veg shop and 2 butchers and a small supermarket.
Owner was very helpful kept in touch and was punctual and friendly.house was spotlessly clean,wifi is good.
Would recommend this house as a peaceful spot and gives a good base for lots of walking routes..see the cicerone and the sunflower guides.
Rustic and Relaxing
The chalet is as described. Whilst it sits beneath the road coming out of Aritzo, we did not get disturbed by noise other than the odd teenager blaring out music as they drove past, but this was very infrequent. I am a light sleeper and had no trouble sleeping. The only noise at night was barking dogs in the valley below and the odd noise from the village donkey – both not enough to disrupt sleep!
We rented out the whole chalet, as it is possible to rent the two ensuite bedrooms separately (which are both large, clean and comfortable), meaning that you could share the common parts of the chalet with others. As commented by another guest, the kitchen could do with slightly more utensils, but that is being a little picky, as we had enough to get by for the 10 relaxing days we stopped there.
The pool was not available for use when we were there as Angelo said the weather had been bad the week before. It was not a problem for us but if you are banking on having use of the pool, check when you book.
The drive to the chalet from its main gates is quite narrow and turning around is more than a three point turn, but with a small car this is not an issue.
We enjoyed the views of the Artizo valley whilst reading on the top terrace.
Angelo was a great host, speaking enough English to get everything across to us, as we do not speak Italian.
Mark e Kathy , grazie per la vostra dettagliata testimonianza. I vostri giudizi e consigli sono per noi preziosi anche perché ci indicano la via da seguire per migliorare rendere la nostra casa sempre più rispondente alle aspettative degli ospiti. Per questo anche Angelo dovrà migliorare il suo “ Inglese” …….. grazie e arrivederci…..
What a nice holiday, totally relaxed!
Angelo was a really good host. He made sure that we had everything we needed for a nice holiday. We did some lovely cooking in his outside kitchen. We had some nice walks in the environment, and had a pleasure to go to the marked and restaurants. Our vacation was just perfect! Thank you Angelo for the warm welcome. We would like to come back one day! Greets from Belgium. Guido and Astrid
