Holiday Rental House
Owner's description: Villathis property is situated on the northern tip of Sardinia on a white sandy beach overlooking a large bay with the islands of the national Park La Maddalena in the background. It lies whithin the famous headland of Capo d'Orso, an unspoiled and protected stretch of coast known for its crystal clear water and perfectly smooth granite rocks in the most extraordinary shapes. The surrounding countryside has no equal in Sardinia or even in the Mediterranean area as a whole. To be seen from the house is the huge rock sculpted by the wind into a shape which resembles the silhouette of a bear (orso). The scenery is so dramatic that Homer had Odysseus lay his ship at anchor in the bay in front of Villathis property. The villa was designed in the '70ies by the architect A...Owner's description: Villathis property is situated on the northern tip of Sardinia on a white sandy beach overlooking a large bay with the islands of the national Park La Maddalena in the background. It lies whithin the famous headland of Capo d'Orso, an unspoiled and protected stretch of coast known for its crystal clear water and perfectly smooth granite rocks in the most extraordinary shapes. The surrounding countryside has no equal in Sardinia or even in the Mediterranean area as a whole. To be seen from the house is the huge rock sculpted by the wind into a shape which resembles the silhouette of a bear (orso). The scenery is so dramatic that Homer had Odysseus lay his ship at anchor in the bay in front of Villathis property. The villa was designed in the '70ies by the architect Alberto Ponis, a man who has left his mark on the island of Sardinia by building low-lying, earthern-coloured houses which hug the hills. His understated and informal style has strongly influenced modern Sardinian architecture. Villathis property is made up of the main house which faces the sea. The house is surrounded by rocks and a variety of meditteranen shrubs, such as myrtle, juniper, ilex and strawberry trees. A spacious covered terrace in front of the living room as well as a second terrace built into the rocks invite to outdoor living. The sea is only a few steps from the house. A path leads to the (practically) private beaches in light beige sand. From rocks, sculpted by the sea and the wind, you can dive into the sea, which is instantly deep and is clean and limpid, thanks to the current and the maestro wind blowing dry and fresh from the west. Long swims and walks can be enjoyed all along the coast. From the front of the house, you can gaze at the islands of Maddalena, Caprera, Spargi, and Santo Stefano, and, in the distance, the mountain peaks of Corsica. The access to Villathis property is an unsurfaced gravel road so careful driving is recommended (not suitable for sport cars). In July and August you may hear some music and, coming from the other side of the bay (depending of the wind direction). The music usually stops before midnight.   Guests Reviews Our Guests Reviews Amenities HOLIDAY HOME AMENITIES Direct access to the sea Internet WIFI connection Fireplace TV (basic Italian Satellite TV with cinema) DVD player CD-stereo Dishwasher Washing machine 2 large fridges and large freezer Microwave Iron and ironing board Hair dryers Plug-in device against mosquitos in each bedroom Window screens in one bedroom Mosquito nets over the bed of the other bedrooms  Portable fans in all bedrooms Amenities HOLIDAY HOME AMENITIES Direct access to the sea Internet WIFI connection Fireplace TV (basic Italian Satellite TV with cinema) DVD player CD-stereo Dishwasher Washing machine 2 large fridges and large freezer Microwave Iron and ironing board Hair dryers Plug-in device against mosquitos in each bedroom Window screens in one bedroom Mosquito nets over the bed of the other bedrooms  Portable fans in all bedrooms Touring ideas Palau 5 km - 10 min Porto Cervo 30 km - 40 min Porto Rotondo 40 km - 50 min Olbia (airport) 40 km - 50 min Bonifacio (in Corsica) - 1 hr 15 min Sassari 120 km - 2 hr Alghero 155 km - 2 hr 20 min Activities Villathis property is situated on the northern tip of Sardinia, whithin the famous promontory of Capo d'Orso, an unspoiled and protected stretch of coast known for its crystal clear sea water and perfectly smooth granite rocks in the most extraordinary shapes. The surrounding countryside that has no equal in Sardinia or even in the Mediterranean area as a whole. Only a few km away lies the fishing harbour Palau, just in front of the National Park of the Arcipelago della Maddalena. Here you will find a good choice of shops and restaurants as well as a post office, bank and newsagent. At Palau, it is simple to hire small boats; the smooth waters of the sea at Palau are considered to be a yachtsman's paradise. Catch a ferry from Palau to Isola della Maddalena, the main island of an archipelago of seven islands and 40 islets, classified as a national park: Parco Nazionale dell'Arcipelago di La Maddalena. The group of islands (Caprera, Spargi, Budelli, La Vezzi and Cavallo) around la Maddalena is renowned for its beauty. They can be visited by boat over the day. The village of La Maddalena is the oldest settlement of the area. You can cross the channel by ferry, even for dinner in one of the restaurants of La Maddalena. Only 5 kilometres from Palau are Punta Sardegna and Porto Rafael, elegant resorts for understated people in the know. Porto Rafael was built in the '60ies by count Rafael Neville, a member of the international jet-set. Following his footsteps a number of villas were built around the small port by people in search of unspoilt coasts and cristal clear water.
