La Maison du Monde
Farmhouse | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
La Maison du Monde is a typical residence surrounded by a wide expanse of cultivated land, which the current owner has inherited from his dear father Mario.
Are very strong, in fact, the bonds that join Michele to this property, loved and cared for over 50 years by his father who, with skilful work, was able to turn it into a green oasis, dominated by plants typical of the Mediterranean: the grapevine and olive trees with their wonderful fruits.
The wine and the olive oil completely biological, which we still produce to the property, always preserve the same intense aromas and flavors of the past, as if they were trapped for eternity boundless love for this land.
La Maison du Monde is in a location (Ungias - Poneddu Puntet) largely owned by the Nieddu's family , which for generations has passed down the art of cultivating the land.
Even today in the market street of the old town of Alghero you can find the products of this fertile area, cultivated by one of the family.
The house inside is comfortable, spacious and equipped with all comforts. It consists of a dining room with fireplace, a large kitchen, two bathrooms with shower and two bedrooms.
Overall Shabby style prevails, thanks to its pastel colors gives a sense of tranquility to all those who live it.
Outside, everything is on hand: a large wooden terrace where you can eat or just relax, a barbeque corner where you can cook delicious dishes of meat, fish and vegetables of the region, and a fresh green grass where you can play or enjoy the generous shadow offered by olive trees, a small, but wonderful emerald green pool in which cooling off in the warm days, which since April you can have thanks to the mild climate.
La Maison du Monde is the perfect place for couples, families with children and groups of friends who enjoy the privacy and tranquility just few steps from the beautiful sandy beaches and from the down town of Alghero, but at the same time, for people who prefer the originality of the places to the luxury and the 'friendship to the formality.
During periods like the end of September and mid-October, the owners organize the grape and olive harvest, involving family, friends and customers. The work taking place just over the weekend, ending with a rich and typical Sardinian lunch with wine tasting and olive oil produced and offered by the owners. Customers are free, however, to choose to participate or to do anything else.

The Sardinia region
The term Riviera del Corallo (in Catalan is Costera del Coral) is indicated for a coastal stretch of Sardinia's north-western plains to the south of Nurra, where is the city of Alghero. Named for the great importance of red coral that is caught in its waters and worked to make jewelry and ornaments since ancient Roman times .
It is a tourist region including almost entirely in the town of Alghero, overlooking the Sea of Sardinia, more precisely on the bay of Alghero.
In addition to the town of Alghero there are some localities, like Fertilia, Maristella and Tramariglio, quiet places that are populated during the summer months. In addition, the land rises Alghero-fertility, which has always played a leading role in the development of the Riviera city in attracting numerous Italian and foreign tourists thanks to the increased supply of domestic and European destinations.
Its territory is of two types: mostly flat in the area south of the city and mixed to the north : here stands the highest peak of the area, Monte D'Olla, or Monte Doglia, but arrived only that 442 meters, stands as a "top "of the highest in the area. Instead lies in the north-western promontory of Capo Caccia the massif that dominates the bay. Along the coast we find many creeks in the south and if the coast looks jagged (with the exception of the beach in La Poglina Hope), in the northern part is devoted to beaches that run in an almost continuous basis from the port of Alghero Fertilia (about 7 km), gives way, once the hamlet, interspersed with sandy coves and bays including Le Bombarde, to arrive at Porto Conte, near which is another small village Alghero , Maristella.
Proceeding to the north-west we find the beach and pine forest Mugoni, then get to meet and the villages of Tramariglio Pischina Salida, before arriving in Cape Hunting, where, among other things, is land access to the caves of Neptune.

"Rustic but comfortable place, excellent location, friendly management"
I highly recommend staying at La Maison du Monde. I stayed there with my wife and four friends for our 3 nights in Alghero and everything was perfect. The place was clean and well stocked with all of the essentials. The beds were comfortable and the decor of the place was charming. The area was quiet and the grounds - a vineyard and olive grove - were lovely. The owner, Mr. Nieddu, responded quickly to my questions via e-mail and was very friendly when we finally met in Alghero. We were totally blown away by the historic section of Alghero, which is a 5 minute drive away (it's easy to park in the big lot just outside the old city walls). Overall, I couldn't recommend this place more highly. I just wish we had more time to stay longer, as there is so much to explore in the area and La Maison du Monde is the perfect place to do it from.
Customers very kind, polite and respectful of the house. We wish to hosting them again in "La Maison du Monde"

"Rural Feel yet 5 minutes from Alghero"
Very friendly owner - came over when it rained with umbrellas, lit a wood fire. Free range of vegetables from the garden. Easy to get in and out of Alghero - but need to be met and taken first time - meeting point not on viamichelin website ... but we met
Excellent customer, kind, polite and very clean. We're just sorry that the weather has not helped them enough, but we will be very pleased to host them again in the near future.
