Having decided for a quiet, relaxing beach holiday away from the hustle and bustle of big resorts, we were lucky to come across this wonderful property on Home Away - and what a find it was.
Communication with Marcella has been great throughout the whole experience, right from the moment of the booking. She provided very clear directions prior to our arrival, and was there to meet us, together with Luciano and Sara - I'll have to say, they are the loveliest people you'll meet and fantastic, hospitable hosts. They greeted us with an assortment of welcome goodies (including one of the best cheeses you'll ever taste), and provided all the information we ever needed regarding local eating and shopping options. All in all, we couldn't be happier with them.
The villa itself is very modern and comes with every amenity one might need, including dishwasher, washing machine, pizza oven, Wi-Fi and so on. You couldn't really ask for more. Its bedrooms were just the right size - we were 4 adults and 4 children, and the bedroom sizes were perfect - the kids loved sharing a bedroom. And speaking of the kids, having a fussball machine on the porch really helped to keep them entertained.
The garden is stunning, and the outside solar shower is really something special - one of the coolest experiences we've ever had. The only downside are the mosquitoes that make an appearance in the evening - but that happens all over Sardignia. The hosts provided us with plenty of mosquito deterrents and we've mad very good use of them. There's also a bbq in the garden, and the hosts also let us borrow sun loungers, umbrellas, an assortment of beach toys and even bikes.
The beach of Sa Rocca is only about 200 meters away, and it's just perfect for children - sandy, low depth for about 10 meters from the shore line, At the hosts' recommendations, we travelled to some other nearby beaches - Sa Messa Longa, Mari Ermi and Is Arutas being absolutely stunning examples, all within 25 minutes of drive time max.
Food-wise, there are plenty of choices within a 20-minute drive radius, with a fantastic pizzeria (Entu & Sole) just 3 minutes away (lovely food, even lovelier staff and low prices). The closest good shops are in the nearby Putzu Idu, and while small, they're pretty well stocked - a piece of advice, do try the local bread, sweets and the excellent local beer - Ichnusa.
Summing things up, we really loved our stay and a huge thank you to the hosts - they are great!
A gem of a house and stunning garden equipped with everything you could need. We're a family of five with children aged 6, 8 and 11. We all loved it and felt instantly at home. Lots of shade and cosy corners all around the house and the outdoor shower is a dream. Pet tortoise also a big hit. Wonderful location with sea views in front and mountains behind. 5 min walk to local beach and our favourite ice cream restaurant Asterix. Great base for exploring stunning local area. So many wonderful quiet beaches. Super snorkelling. Good, safe roads. Large supermarkets about 10 mins drive away otherwise local shops have surprisingly good stock. Recommend day trip to Bosa. This was our first visit to Sardinia and we wanted a rural location away from tourists. This is exactly what we found so were very happy. Maria is a delightful host. Very very helpful and interested. Could have stayed here for a very long time!
