Description from owner

Description

Just 3 minutes to one of the best beaches in Sardinia, to the nearest bar and great seafood restaurant recently featured by Rick Stein in his BBC series. 5 minutes further on is the harbour village of Buggerru. The area has numerous quality restaurants which are an easy five or ten minute drive from the house and none of which is expensive. Great places to watch the beautiful sunsets over the sea enjoyed on the western side of the island whilst enjoying the very best in Italian and Sardinian food. The tourist information site has details of restaurants and some great photography.

This coastal location just below the Costa Verde really is one of the best spots on the island close to some of the finest and yet least crowded beaches, such as the closest at Portixeddu, a fantastic 3km long sandy beach, Scivu, Picinas and Cala Domestica. Scivu has the largest sand dunes in Europe. Cala Domestica, by contrast, has a sandy beach surrounded by rocky cliffs, a sheltered bay and fantastic snorkelling.

As you can see from the photographs, there are no high-rise buildings, in fact recent changes in the law now prevents building within 3km of the sea. The UNESCO listed area of Sulcis Iglesiente is surrounded by mountains, a great location for trekking, mountain or road biking especially the cooler months and is close to the Temple of Antas (Tempio di Antas) and other historical sites.

There are several established rock climbing venues in this area, and the European surfing championships are often held there. It is a great area for wind surfing. There are opportunities for horse/donkey trekking including a popular full day trip across the hills to Scivu beach. Great snorkelling in lovely rocky bays and some excellent sea fishing within five minutes drive. Plenty of space around you for games on the beaches, even in August, makes a refreshing change from other parts of Europe.

Set back just a few minutes from the beach down a little used country road (ideal for cycling safely to the beach with children) this recently constructed villa has all modern furniture and conveniences and is set in very private grounds. The setting is idyllic, to breakfast on the balcony is a lovely experience in itself with fantastic views and total quiet. The large barbecue/oven, the tranquil picturesque setting and lovely dining area on the balcony combine to make for lovely evenings at the house after a hard day at the beach! The large natural grounds offer children the chance to explore and for imaginative play in safety. The new outdoor hot and cold shower is handy for both kids and sunbathers to cool down. We now have fast internet and wifi available inside and outside along with Netflix.

In the grounds of the villa that are mostly wild, it is possible to see and hear some interesting animal species, for example we have "singing" nightjars and calling scops owls which can be heard from the balcony at night. You may see colourful Bee-eaters and because the grounds are wooded, guests can enjoy the evening song of 'tree frogs' This Easter (2014) we were lucky to see a Hoopoe in the garden. Hopefully it will be there when we go back.

It is occasionally possible for guest parties and friends (max 10) to hire and enjoy a beautiful skippered Predator 7m RIB for diving, snorkelling , fishing, general bayhopping, swimming in beautiful locations and trips to cosmopolitan Carloforte (a great lunch stop). Adventurous adults and children alike are able to try our kneeboards, wakeboards and skis, in beautiful surroundings. The Predator 660 Rib can be seen in the foreground of the Carloforte photo, it offers a fantastic opportunity to see and experience the islands coastline and otherwise inaccessible bays from the sea. The boat is a super safe 'Category B' craft capable of handling almost any sea conditions. Recent guests used the boat for birdwatching. We visited Carloforte to see the rare Eleonora Falcons nesting there. Please enquire for full details and availability during your stay at the time of booking.

The villa is situated in a lovely part of the island, with the very best in scenery and beaches but without the expensive day to day living costs that you may find in other parts of the island. We know the area well and have left some very useful area tips in a visitors book and this has been added to by our various guests. With tips ranging from where to find the local spring to refill your water bottles, to the whereabouts of the butcher who sells the best sardinian sausage!, we hope it helps to get you settled in and your holiday started in the area. There are also English books and DVD's to entertain guests and a very rare item in Italy - an electric kettle!. Should you wish to have a chat about the area or the villa please contact us (after 4pm on weekdays, anytime at weekends) Thank you for your interest.

“The Ultimate Chill Out Holiday”

Reviewed 2 Nov 2013

When we arrived at Villa L'Orto we were unwell and very tired. As soon as we stepped out onto the lovely verandah and looked at the view we felt better. The scenery is wonderful, it's peaceful and just what we needed. The villa is well kitted out catering for all needs. The information sheet is useful and gives you a quick start to getting to know the area. After initial reservations we became big fans of the outside shower - wonderful As it was the end of the season many restaurants were closed but we became very fond of the L'Ancora where they make lovely cappuccino and excellent seafood. The beach was often deserted and it felt like our very own private beach. If you want a complete chill out holiday, as we did, and happy to read, do sudokus and crosswords then you will be very happy here. Equally there is plenty to see and do if you want.

“Great villa in an amazing location”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2013

We have just returned from our holiday in Sardinia. We stayed in Villa L'Orto 2 years ago and loved it so much we returned this year. The villa is fantastic, very well equipped, our children loved the selection of games and dvd's. The best part of the villa is without a doubt the terrace with panoramic views. The nearest beach in Portixedu [5 min by car] is wonderful, def one of the best on the island. And it is never crowded. The local restaurants again a brilliant although there are not that many of them. We eat at the restaurant in Portixedu overlooking the beach {the one Rick Stein visited}, the pizza Bora Bora on the hill is brilliant in the evening and if you visit The caves at Su Manau you must have lunch or dinner at Ostello Su Manau. The owner/chef speaks good english and his food is just delicious. Also the setting is lovely, manicured garden and lovely mountain views. The owners are very helpful and friendly.

“A perfect trip...”

Reviewed 8 Jul 2013

The apartment - Clean, modern, very well-equipped, surrounded by nature but only 10 minutes drive to 2 lovely towns, quiet and secluded. We all slept really well as the beds were comfy and there was air conditioning. Cooking was easy as there was a modern well equipped kitchen and a brilliant barbeque! The area - Probably the nicest part of Sardegna - although I am reluctant to say that as what makes it so special is that there are hardly any tourists...! The local people - Very friendly, kind and helpful The beaches - Spoilt for choice really.. they are in my opinion the best beaches in the world. The landscape is equally as beautiful to any beach in the Caribbean, but you have the added benefit of no sharks and no risk of getting mugged. The water is obviously cooler and there are less tropical fish but its 2 hours flight from the UK... you can't have it all! I have unfortunately forgotten the names to my favourite beaches - but you should explore for yourself... the furthest ones we travelled to were about 1hrs drive north and 1hr south of the villa. The owners - Helpful, friendly and polite. In summary - If you wish to visit the nicest part of Sardegna and you want to stay in a clean, modern apartment then you won't regret staying at this villa.

“A wonderful place for people how like a quiet and natural setting”

Reviewed 29 Jun 2012

The villa is quite new (2009) and well equiped, especially the kitchen. Though there is a tv with many movies and a console with a lot of games, there are no tv channels. Having breakfast and dinner on the balcony with a view on the surrounding farmland and hills is great. The garden is full of live with many butterflies, tree frogs, even some (harmless) snakes and a variety of bird species. There are several nice beaches within half an hour's drive. Touristic attractions like the island of Sant'Antioco and the Piscinas Dunes are also reachable, though you should plan a daytrip for this. We had a great stay and can recommend the villa to anyone who would like to enjoy authentic Sardinia.

“Mediteranian Paradise”

Reviewed 24 Apr 2012

The house was 5 minutes drive from the main beach which was an amazing beach, not very crowed and surrounded by mountains. The house itself was very beautiful with a modern kitchen and big garden space where you could grill meat or fish on a big barbecue and have meals on the spacious veranda which had a wonderful view. It was a very quiet and peaceful place to stay, in the middle of the countryside but 10 minutes drive to two small towns. The house was complete with all the necessary services which included 5 bikes and information about places to see and the best restaurants in the area. We really enjoyed ourselves there so I would definately recomend it to anyone looking for the REAL taste of the mediteranian.

“Wonderfully quiet, scenic location not far from the beach.”

Reviewed 24 Mar 2012

My family and I really enjoyed our stay in Villa l’Orto. It had all the creature comforts you would expect and more. The kitchen was fully equipped, and the lounge had a large TV, audio equipment and a games consol for the children with a good selection of games. There was even a wood burning stove for our use and logs supplied (not that we needed it in mid September) but the logs came in handy for the traditional brick built BBQ which was fantastic. The veranda was huge and had fantastic views over the surrounding countryside and nearby mountains. We also had use of a range of mountain bikes which were great for peddling down to the beach.

Owner's reply: Thanks very much for your kind comments. Through our own experiences there we try to leave the items guests will need during their stay, especially keeping in mind that many travel light using the economy airlines with hand luggage only. So glad you enjoyed your stay, we hope to see you again soon, thanks again.

“Perfect holiday for relaxation”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2011

Lovely villa in a great location. Area steeped in history so plenty to explore if you can motivate yourself from state of deep relaxation that comes over you as soon as you arrive. Everything you need is provided, umbrellas for the beach, cool box for picnics, bikes to cycle to the beach. Also brilliantly comfortable bed. Visiting in early October meant a lot of local restaurants were closed, but this also meant everywhere was quiet and we practically had the local beaches to ourselves. Still great weather though, mid 20's so plenty of sunbathing and sea was lovely and warm. Fantastic deal for couples out of season so hurry up and book!

“A fantastic villa in a lovely location, near one of the best beaches you'll ever visit”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2011

We had a brilliant holiday in Villa L'Orto and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing break in Sardinia. The villa is bright, modern and spacious with magnificent views from the balcony and main room. It is well equipped, with air conditioning in both bedrooms, and a modern kitchen and bathroom. There's a wonderful outdoor barbeque area as well as a great outdoor shower which is perfect for showering down when you've just come back from the beach. The villa is within a 5 min drive of two magnificent beaches - Portixeddu and Buggeru. Both have amazing white sand beaches and are really safe for swimming for young children. The area is fantastic - we had the most relaxing and peaceful holiday we've ever had. The owner of the villa is really friendly and accommodating, and was really helpful in helping us make the booking and giving us tips and advice. Villa L'Orto is a real gem, highly recommended.
