Holiday Rental House
IL Granaio in Martis Sardinia is an idyllic country barn/villa attached to an historic country house which is 25 minutes from the beautiful beaches of the north coast of Sardinia. Escape and unwind with nature in the wild. We are an English couple who moved here in 2009 - we took a chance and brought Ca Tupa D'Orzo country house having fallen in love with Sardinia. To this day the island takes our breath away. We renovated the house and in 2013 IL Granaio, which was an old grain & animal barn, was converted into spacious studio/villa accommodation so that you can enjoy this stunning country too! We are both semi retired but still work like troupers managing the estate. The barn/villa is attached to the main house which is rich in history. We maintain a low profile at all times unless you...IL Granaio in Martis Sardinia is an idyllic country barn/villa attached to an historic country house which is 25 minutes from the beautiful beaches of the north coast of Sardinia.

We are both semi retired but still work like troupers managing the estate. The barn/villa is attached to the main house which is rich in history. We maintain a low profile at all times unless you require some help or information.Spacious open plan holiday accommodation located just outside of the historic medival village of Martis Sardinia. Immersed deep in the countryside, yet close enough to the coast to enjoy the stunning beaches of the north coast. CAR HIRE IS ESSENTIAL we really are in the middle of nowhere with little transportation. The villa/barn has access to an orchard with an above ground private pool. There are many acres to wander in and explore - we have a little vintage roulette in the orchard for your gypsy days! Bedroom is Mezzanine style, there is a double day bed and a single sofa bed in the living space. Il Granaio is completely open plan and that includes the upper bedroom. IL Granaio has a fully equipped modern kitchen and the shower/toilet dressing room is on the opposite upper level. Martis is in an area of outstanding beauty. You are surrounded by woodland, fields and farmland. The village has much historic value. The Petrified Forest is a mysterious area with fossilised oak trees still intact. Ancient bronze age Nuraghi buildings are scattered and untouched. The ruins of the medival church San Pantaleo dominates the village and is visible from the house. There are 2 supermarkets many bars and one bar/cafe serving pizzas at the weekend. The Angolina bar will serve food with advance notice. There are several agriturismos around Martis, they serve classic Sardinian food and are great value. There is a bank, post office and many little shops, doctor services. The neighbouring village of Chiaramonti has more facilities. The village is very old and still has many historic buildings dating back to the 15th century. This is not the location for those seeking vibrant nightlife! WILD LIFE PARADISE The sound of sheep and their dogs, night jars, crickets and everyday farm life can be the only distraction! A rare Pine Martin has been seen this year. This is a totally rural spot, wild & free! Suited to those wanting to get away from it all. Ca Tupa is a haven for rare birds, golden eagles have been spotted just recently. FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN, MICROWAVE OVEN, GAS HOB, FRIDGE, TOASTER, BARBEQUE, WASHING MACHINE, DINING TABLE, TV WITH SATELITTE VIEWING, KING SIZE BED UPSTAIRS, DOUBLE BED, SINGLE SOFA BED, STORAGE, TOWELS, BEACH TOWELS & BEDDING PROVIDED.

About the neighbourhood
Il Granaio is situated and backs on to an historic country house situated in Sardinia Italy, just outside of the beautiful village of Martis with stunning views of the medieval ruins of St Pantaleo and the dramatic Mount Limbara & Montiruju range. The acres of undulating countryside are yours to escape in. Il Granaio is fairly remote so a car is essential! Martis is a small village full of history, idillic walks and boasts stunning views. This is not the place if you want vibrant nightlife! It is a 3 minute drive up to the bars and supermarkets from Il Granaio. You are 25 minutes from the beaches of Lu Bagnu and the coast roads to most of the tourist resorts. The crystal waters and powder white sand are truly the envy of the Mediterranean.
Getting around
A car is essential! This part of Sardinia has little or no transport, we really are off the beaten track.
