Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Oristano province - Villa Mannu

A 4 bedroom property, near Bosa in a tranquil cliff side coastal position

The villa is located less than 10 minutes drive form the fishing town of Bosa on the NW coastline of Sardinia. It is a tranquil area within a hamlet of small houses, a church and piazza. Restaurants and bars are within 15 minutes walk during the tourist season.

It offers superb panoramic sea views lying less than 70 metres from the sea with access to a rocky beach.

Sandy beaches are walking distance and a short drive will take you to secluded and tranquil coves as well as beaches with night clubs and discos in the town of Bosa.

The villa itself has modern amenities including 7.5m above ground pool, DSL internet, air conditioning (in 3 bedrooms), heating, and entertainment systems. The villa has mosquito protection on all windows in all bedrooms and the front room for those rare occasions before sunset when some mosquitos find their way to the villa.

Evenings are fantastic with sun sets over the sea directly in front of you from the veranda. It is great for romantic holidays as well as family get together. It is child friendly and can accommodate 6 to 8 persons (master bedroom and three double rooms, the second double room can be made as a double bed or two singles).

About Paul & Una Mannu

I am A Sardinian from birth and dreamt of buying my own property close to my relatives and parents. It is wonderful to be able to share this family home with others and for them to see it as their family home when they are here.

Paul & Una Mannu purchased this villa in 2007

Why Paul & Una Mannu chose Oristano province

It has to be because of the views and sunsets and the tranquil setting. It lies in a small hamlet of beautifully set houses. that has an accompanying church and piazza. The kids loved playing in the piazza when they were younger. There is a real sense freedom and rural environment about the place.

What makes this villa unique

Our maxim is transparency and knowing exactly what you get. The prices are all inclusive and you get free offerings like fast wi-fi and AC. We also provide you with towels for the beach, cool box, umbrellas and a comprehensive house that is more a home than a rental villa. We have a vast array of in house entertainment, playstation 3 games and huge collection of DVDs just in case you get a bad day. All we ask is you treat it with the respect you would treat your own home

In the autumn and winter (our favourite time) you have a wonderful wood stove and heating to keep you warm.

The area is truly outstanding with a main town not to far away and surrounding villages on the hillside. You can go for long coastal walks and come back to a private area and take a dip in the pool when you come to relax.

The reviews reflect just how many families have enjoyed our property and our website on www.mannu.co.uk/villa also has more information for you. You will not be disappointed.

Ideale Bleibe für Ferien in der Nähe von Bosa

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben die Villa Mannu für zwei Familien (8 Personen) gebucht und konnten uns vom ersten Tag an sehr gut erholen. Obwohl diese Ferien schon bald ein Jahr zurück liegen, denken wir gerne an die herrlichen Sonnenuntergänge zurück, welche man von der Terrasse des Hauses aus bestens beobachten konnte. Trotz ca. 30 Grad Celsius haben wir dank den rund ums Haus verteilten Sitzplätzen immer ein Schattenplätzchen gefunden. Der Pool war vor allem für unsere Kinder ein Highlight. Bosa und diverse wunderbare Strände (im Herbst waren diese vor allem von wenigen Einheimischen besucht) sind vom Haus aus mit kurzen Autofahrten gut zu erreichen. Die Vermieter sind sehr zuvorkommend, antworten innert Kürze auf Mails und der Kontakt zu Ihnen war von Anfang bis Ende sehr freundschaftlich. Herzlichen Dank!

Although this holiday a year back soon , we like to think back to the beautiful sunsets , which you could watch from the terrace of the house very well. Despite about 30 degrees Celsius , we have thanks to the seats around the house distributed always found a shady areas . The pool was a highlight especially for our children .

A Beautiful Villa in a Spectacular Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Mannu as a family of six, four adults and two children, and it proved to be an ideal base for us. The villa was clean, well maintained and had all the facilities we needed. Had the weather been bad (which fortunately for us it wasn't) the villa has a wide range of dvds, books and games to keep guests entertained. Given the beautifully sunny weather we spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool, and on a number of occasions enjoyed having supper outside under the veranda. The location of the villa is stunning and from it there are superb views of the sea and coastline. The towns of Bosa and Bosa Marina are only 10 minutes drive away and offer a wide range of bars and restaurants. Highlights for us were a walk up through the old part of Bosa to visit the castle, an excursion on the Trenino Verde (little green train), and a day out on a boat offering opportunities for swimming in quiet coves and snorkelling.

A special word of thanks to owner Paul who, on our behalf, booked a table at a local restaurant for the day of our arrival including arrangements for a birthday cake for the youngest member of our party.

All in all, an excellent villa, lovely location, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to our friends / family.

Jättefint hus med fantastisk utsikt

  • 5 of 5

Vi hade en mycket trevlig vecka i Villa Mannu. Bra planlösning på huset och rent och snyggt. Utrustning som behövdes fanns på plats. Underbar uteplats utanför köket under bambutak med fantastisk utsikt. Det fanns även två möblemang på baksidan vid poolen men lika fin utsikt. 10-15 minuters gångväg till närmaste sandstrand och 10 minuter med bil till Bosa. Vi hittade inget närmare än Bosa för att handla så bil är ett måste. Ägaren har hela tiden varit tillgänglig och trevlig och haft bra service. Vi rekommenderar absolut Villa Mannu och kan tänka oss att hyra igen. Området runt omkring är väldigt vackert och genuint och inte så mycket turister.

Great location near the pretty town of Bosa

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Mannu. The villa is very well equipped, we weren't lacking anything. It was lovely to have such beautiful views of the coasts and dramatic sunsets each night. The villa is an easy 10 minutes drive to Bosa where there is lots of parking, lots of nice restaurants there. It is a shame that there are no restaurants within walking distance but the kitchen and BBQ are well set up for cooking your own dinner when you fancy a night in.

Paul was very helpful at every stage of organising our stay in the villa and the information provided before and at the villa was very useful.

Geweldig zeezicht!

  • 5 of 5

We hebben een heerlijke week gehad in villa Mannu! De bedden waren goed. De keuken was goed ingericht. Het zwembad was prima. Omgeving is mooi, maar je hebt wel een auto nodig. En de playstation vonden onze jongens geweldig!! We hadden goed contact met de eigenaar. Hij reageerde heel snel op onze mail. Maar het allermooiste van villa Mannu was het uitzicht.

The historic Roman town of Bosa is 40 Km from Alghero airport and the house is a 5 minute drive from Bosa. Within walking distance you will find shops and bars. A short drive to Bosa and you will find typical tourist attractions with large beaches, discos, night clubs and larger hypermarkets, banks and all amenities. So you have both worlds and can return to a more tranquil setting. The area is rated 5 stars in the Italian blue guide of beaches. And is often ranked as having some of the cleanest beaches in Europe. Santa Maria is a central spot for religious festivals during the month of August and you get a real feel for local life and celebrations. An internationally renowned golf course if 30 minutes drive designed by Van Hagge.

The countryside is spectacular. You can walk from the villa and start a Southerly coastal walk that takes you miles either via the coastline or into the country which is wild and mountainous. You'll experience the breadth of sea weather, heavy and calm.

Other Activities: Sub-aqua diving, wind surfing, sea fishing, golfing within 40 minutes drive
