This was a great find and we would thoroughly recommend it for those wanting a great location from which to explore this area of Sardinia. Our communications with Luigi were excellent at all times and we were given a very warm welcome. The place itself is very well presented - immaculately clean with plenty of original features as well as great facilities in the kitchen and a very comfy bed! The roof terrace was great with plenty of seating and a table for dining. The location was perfect - right in the centre of the old town above the meeting point of four lanes which opened out into an area with a fantastic bakery and salumeria, a supermarket and greengrocers. Given its location we were also impressed by how quiet it was. We had a great stay and would recommend this place without hesistation!
After a twisty, mountainous drive you arrive at Portixeddu with an absolutely beautiful beach. The apartment is clean, bright and welcoming with everything you need to have a comfortable stay. There are chairs and a parasol to use to enjoy the outside area and a barbecue although we did not use this during our week here. Every day we walked down to the local beach, a matter of minutes away from our front door on foot! Mr Armas was on hand to help with any requests we had, and clearly wanted us to have a comfortable stay. To buy provisions you need to drive to Buggeru or use the local fruit and veg stall a 10 minute walk away. If we had one minor criticism, it would be that there was no WiFi, although the initial description of the property seemed to suggest that there was. There are a nice amount of places to get food - 3 restaurants, 2 beach cafes and a beach bar and there are some nice activities. We enjoyed snorkelling around the rocky area of the beach and had a great boat trip with a local company and the friendly host Nicola! All in all a chilled holiday in a quiet and scenic location.
