House | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6

House in Bosa, Sardinia. Tastefully Renovated Medieval House on 2 floors In Historical Centre Of Bosa, Terrace With Sea View. In Old Historic Centre Of Bosa, A Quiet, Cobbled Street Within 5 Minutes Walking Distance To Shops. Sleeps 2/6 (2 Bedrooms + Sofa bed).

This "home from home" is renovated tastefully and painted bright yellow - very much in keeping with the whole historic centre with its coloured houses. The terrace is a place for relaxing, enjoying both family or romantic meals, BBQs, sunbathing or just dreaming as you enjoy a glass of local wine looking over the roof-tops towards the sea. The summer months are perfect for enjoying the beautifully clean beaches in the vicinity. At other times of year there are wonderful walks to be had, discovering the ancient countryside, flora and fauna. The local people remember the house as a place full of singing and dancing and this is reflected in its homely, artistic and friendly atmosphere - a home from home! Free parking just up the road. Nearby shops, restaurants and amenities. Many local festivals show-casing music, arts and local delicacies.

Notes on accommodation
The house has been designed to be very comfortable and suitable for all visitors. All living spaces are on one floor making it easy for families with young children or with people with mobility issues. Double doors from the kitchen lead to the terrace making it easy to chat to others while cooking the wonderful local produce and eating outside in the balmy evenings. Bedrooms are on the floor below and good mattresses ensure a good night's sleep. There is a bathroom with shower on each floor. We have invested in good mattresses to en-sure a good night's sleep.
ADDED EXTRA! There is a small self-contained apartment available during July-September that sleeps 2 people - a useful add-on for large families or groups of friends or can be rented separately.

Accessibility
The stairs need care for toddlers or people who may have mobility issues. There is a wooden hand-rail on the stairs, and the child-gate at the top and bottom of the stairs means that the sitting room can be blocked off and made into a safe space for babies or toddlers.

Outside
The colourful private terrace with plants and barbecue, leads onto the kitchen making eating and socialising outside very easy and accessible. The streets of the old town are generally very quiet and peaceful. In the summer months, and especially in August when there is a sudden influx of tourists and relatives, the streets can become very lively with families eating outside with friends, children and neighbours joining each other to eat on the streets or on their terraces.

Coast/Beach
Bosa Marina - the nearest beach approx 2 km. It is the perfect long, sandy beach for all children and young people, with many cafes, shops and facilities. Several beaches within cycling or driving distance - one with restaurant, disco, and shower facilities - some rocky and great for snorkelling. Bosa is a good centre for exploring the island and boat trips are a favourite activity either from Bosa itself, or from Alghero as well as exploring the ancient countryside and historic sites.

Golf
Golf within 40km south of the island along beautiful coastline.

Special interest holidays
Although no specific courses, cookery, bird-watching, horse-riding, bike and scooter hire, guided tours, can be accessed easily and with notice can be arranged locally. There is plenty of information available in the house re archaeology, flora and fauna, or pony-trekking etc. Please get in touch if you are interested in learning fresco, encaustic, or egg-tempera painting by well-known international artist who lives locally.

How to get there
Alghero is the nearest airport - approx 50km away (wonderful coastal road)
and it takes approx an hour. Hire car is recommended, but some visitors have enjoyed using local buses. There is also a tourist train that goes regularly to Bosa Marina. It is a good centre for exploring the island by motor-bike or car.
Olbia airport is approx 2 hours away by car. Ferries from Italy sail to Olbia or Porto Torres.

Distances
5 km from Flussio, village with murals on many buildings. Sale of local lace & basket-weaving. There are ruins of a largely Punic / Roman / Carthaginian city at Cornus near Santa Caterina Pittinuri which is interesting but largely un-excavated. However the remains at Tharros of a Phoenician City founded in 730 BC are totally stunning and well worth a visit. The old church at San Giovanni di Sinis is worth a visit whilst you are down there, it is one of the oldest Christian churches in Sardinia.

Further details
There are many local shops, supermarkets, restaurants and banks. There is a local tourist office, and it is possible to rent bikes and motorbikes nearby. The castle is a two minute walk away through cobbled streets. Shops are open in the summer between 8 - 12.30 and 6 - 8.30pm. At other times of the year they open earlier.
