“Gjanda”
Reviewed 18 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We had a fantastic in the house near Monte Moro. It was very quiet and peaceful with just the wild pig snuffling round in the valley. It provided some wonderful autumn sun and we enjoyed the pool and the wonderful views from the balcony. We enjoyed travelling round and soaking up the history as well as going to lots of lovely beaches. In particular we enjoyed the amazing local wines and mirrors and went twice to Ennios recommended restaurant - La Ruota. Ennio was very helpful and gave lots of advice.

“Fantastic villa, wonderful holiday”
Reviewed 8 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We have just returned from a fantastic fortnight in this wonderful villa.

The villa is situated in a very peaceful location on the side of Monte Moro with unspoilt views out across a valley and beyond. There were 3 good sized bedrooms (all with separate A/C units), 2 bathrooms, dining room/lounge and a fully fitted kitchen. There was also a large balcony with barbeque and table and a good sized swimming pool with sun loungers and chairs on the lawn.

You could spend your holiday watching the wildlife from the comfort of the villa. In 2 weeks we saw lizards, tortoises, wildcats, bats, eagles, buzzards, peregrine falcons, dragonflies, butterflies, thousands of insects and a family of wild boar!!

The local town of Abbiadori is around 5 miles away with a good selection of supermarkets, restaurants and a bank. It is then another 3 miles or so in to Porto Cervo and to a selection of amazing beaches. Our favourite was Liscia Ruja but also loved Baia Sardinia and Pevero.

Sa Conca in Abbiadori is a must visit for gelato, pastries and cakes but I have to say that all restaurants we tried were good quality without being overly expensive.

Ennio is the perfect host, never intrusive but always available if you have any problems and very knowledgeable about the local area of which he is obviously very proud. His recommendations of beaches, restaurants and days out were spot on.

All in all a perfect family holiday which we would love to repeat!

“The perfect base for experiencing beautiful Sardinia”
Reviewed 10 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Villa La Gjanda boasts a perfect location in Santa Teresina, about halfway up Monte Moro. As you would expect, the views are simply fantastic. Best of all, you're only around a five minute drive from the nearest town, Abbiadori, where you will find numerous supermarkets, a pharmacy, cafes and other amenities.

Ennio is the ultimate host. Before our arrival, he was communicative and knowledgeable. He provided us with so many recommendations, all of which were spot-on! He was always friendly and happy to help - with his tips, we were able to discover a more authentic Sardinian.

Ennio's villa is perfect for a family. It is spacious, clean, and comfortable, with a nice-sized pool and sun loungers for catching a tan. There is also a BBQ on the terrace, which we used more than once during our week-long stay. Why eat out when you can drink wine and enjoy the amazing views from the comfort of your home away from home?!

We loved trekking up to the top of the mountain, too - before you even reach the summit, you're greeted by panoramic views across the island and the coast. Slightly further afield (but still not far to go - this location is perfect for exploring the whole north-east of the island) we enjoyed Baja Sardinia for a stroll and the golden sands of Spiaggi Cappriocoli. San Pantaleo market is also a must-visit, but be sure to head there early before it gets too hot and busy.

In terms of food, you need to go to La Rocca restaurant for seafood, Il Birrifico at the foot of the mountain for burgers and steak, and L'Assaggio in San Pantaleo for mussels or pasta. The golf club near Cappriocoli beach is also great for a leisurely lunch on a shady terrace. In Abbiadori, you have to pop to Sa Conca, a charming caffetteria that serves the best cakes and gelato around.

All in all, it was a brilliant holiday and Ennio was the perfect host. We can't wait to visit again :)

“Lovely villa in a fantastic location”

La GJANDA is a lovely villa in a fantastic, peaceful location - yet within easy reach of the fantastic beaches of the Costa Smeralda and La Maddalena. Breakfast on the terrace overlooking the mountains was unforgettable and the private pool was great in the afternoons when the beaches became busier.
Our thanks to Ennio for being a very helpful and knowledgeable host and for being on hand to answer any questions or give advice.
We would all love to return!

“Absolutely Fantastic”

My partner and I stayed here for a week in September, and it was amazing. Perfect setting and the views are amazing from the villa. The beaches are all so close and definitely worth a visit, as they are all beautiful.

I would recommend travelling about 30 minutes to Palau, and getting a boat to see all the islands around La Maddelana. We did this three times and snorkelled and swam in the crystal clear ocean. Absolurtely perfect.

Ennio is an amazing host, and was very helpful with recommendations on places to see and places to eat. My favourite place was La Candela. I won't spoil the surprise, but it is worth it!! If you are looking for traditional Sardinian food, this is the place to go!!

We will definitely be visiting again, it was by far the best holidaywe've ever been on. Thank you again Ennio for helping us with everything, and being an amazing host!!

“Wonderful setting, lovely accommodation and great host.”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed in Ennio's lovely house in August of this year and were delighted with the location and the accommodation. If you are looking for a peaceful holiday away from the crowds and with beautiful views, this is the place for you. The only noise we heard was the tinkling of the cow bells down in the valley below. So relaxing! Ennio is a wonderful host and is a mine of information on what to do and see in the area. We would highly recommend it for both families and friends and hope to go back one day ourselves.
