Close to the beach, this cottage-apartment is designed to offer a traditional Sardinian atmosphere set in a wild, rural landscape where exploring in the fresh air is a must! The area surrounding the apartment grounds is immersed in nature with many paths leading to quiet coves and magnificent views not available from a vehicle. Our guests also have access to the adjacent beach via a short direct footpath, where one can relax in the sun or swim and snorkel. The water is warm and crystal clear here, and very inviting.
The apartment is nicely positioned with an easy walk to the shore, and faces west to capture stunning sunsets which are a feature of this region. The property is suitable for 4-6 guests and comprises a comfortable living area with 2 x sofa beds, an open plan, fully equipped kitchenette, a double bedroom with king size bed, a bedroom with bunk beds, a shower room with separate shower cubicle and bidet, and a great patio with furniture for dining outside. Free Wi-Fi is available in public areas, with seating and tables, just a few minutes walk from the property.
The properties within the settlement are sympathetically designed traditional Sardinian styles and finished in the pastel colours typical of the Mediterranean. The landscaped gardens surrounding the apartments are interwoven with many paths bringing you to stone arches and features as well as viewpoints to the blue sea which forms constant background throughout. This cottage-apartment is located in a very favourable position and is part of a private residence with gated access and security for added peace of mind. The beach is located adjacent to the apartment grounds and can be reached via a dedicated footpath, taking less than 10 minutes to walk there. On the beach there is an area where sun beds and parasols can be hired, and snorkelling here will open up a world of amazingly colourful fish, even quite close to the shore.
The location is ideally situated to offer a quiet rural atmosphere and is perfect for those who wish to holiday in a peaceful, semi-isolated location in the wilds of Sardinia. The whole area from the apartment grounds is crossed with paths through the natural scrublands, taking you to little-known coves and wonderful views not seen from any vehicle. Walk over the headland to the popular beach at La Marinedda, and further to the quaint fishing town of Isola Rossa. Or adventure over the mountain to the north to visit Tinnari beach - a hike for the fit and active! However, a car is considered essential to not only approach the destination but also to access the nearest amenities such as shops, supermarkets and restaurants, all within a 10-15 minute drive. Also within this distance leisure pursuits such as boat excursions, diving schools, sailing, wind surfing, a variety of beaches, historical monuments and more can be found. Tennis courts can be hired at the entrance to the apartment grounds and very nearby is a fantastic aqua park with various rides and slides, offering a fun-filled day for all the family. 22 km inland is a river with naturally hot gushing springs where you can swim in the warm water, relax on the wide riverbanks and make your own mud baths, all for no cost. Alternatively why not try some professional treatments in the Spa entre next door.
Your accommodation is offered as self-catering but there are many restaurants within the region offering traditional Sardinian seafood dishes as well as the usual pastas and pizzas. Close by is the renowned wine making town of Badesi, with its cantinas and other gastronomic treats, with a great backdrop of an 8 km long beach with glistening white sand. Perfect!
Adventuring further afield will bring you to places such as Castelsardo, a colourful town on the coast with a castle above set on a huge rock, Monte Pulchiana which boasts the largest granite monolith in Sardinia, nuraghe (ancient Sardinian dwellings) and the Tombe dei giganti (the Giant's Grave, a Bronze Age burial site), the famous Valle della Luna with a vast area resembling the surface of the moon, and many rock sculptures chiselled by the wind, including one in the form of an elephant!
