Dommu Asuletta is a charming holiday home in the medieval town of Bosa, on the west coast of Sardinia.
The house, which is full of character and original features, lies at the heart of the medieval quarter of Bosa and is well-placed for all the sights and activities and only a minute from the shops and restaurants. It offers flexible self-catering accommodation, sleeping from 2-6 (via two main bedrooms) over four floors with full modern facilities and two bathrooms - one ensuite.
Situated on the Temo river and just 2km from the sea, Bosa is the hidden jewel of Sardinia. Steeped in history and culture, it is off the tourist track yet has so much to offer. From the beautiful unspoiled beaches (Bosa Marina is consistently voted one of Italy's cleanest beaches) to the cultural sights, fine dining and relaxed night life – there is plenty to enjoy whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a family holiday or a place to enjoy with friends.
PARKING: The house is nestled in the cobbled back streets of the historical town and so there is no official parking on the same street. However, there is ample street parking 5 minutes away. Via Alzuni and near the church are both great spots.

Children and adults alike will love this eccentric house – no wall is straight, and you will need to duck through doorways if you are more than five feet tall. But, when all the windows and doors are open, it is bright and cool and a rather wonderful place! If you want to stay somewhere truly individual and interesting then welcome to Dommu Asuletta!
The ground floor is where the beach stuff is stored and also the cleaning materials. If you have golf, fishing, wind surfing or other water sports equipment, this is the place to store it. You will also find the recycling boxes here.
The first floor has a double bed and two single beds (one is a pull-out bed). The room is a good size and well divided, perfect for a couple with two children but less convenient for four sharing adults. There is no balcony in this room and it is only one flight of stairs up to the bathroom.
The second floor contains the bathroom and a small sitting room. The room has a selection of books, games, toys and some CDs.
The 3rd floor
The master bedroom on the third floor enjoys more privacy. The room has a double bed and also a fold-up single bed. There is an ensuite bathroom with a shower.
Kitchen / Terrace*
The 4th and final floor is the kitchen and the terrace and it is probably the room where you'll spend the most amount of time. There is a fully fitted kitchen, cooking utensils and everything you need to cook in the Italian style.

PARKING: The house is nestled in the cobbled back streets of the historical town and so there is no official parking on the same street. However, there is ample street parking 5 minutes away in the many local streets. Via Alzuni and near the church are both great spots.
TERRACE: Even if you plan to eat out for all of your stay, the terrace is the perfect place to start the day with a cappuccino or end it with a relaxing glass of wine. Of an evening, it is the ideal vantage spot to watch the world go by and, if you look up the hill, you can see the Castello Malaspina overlooking the old town.
The Sardinia region
Sardinia is such a beautiful island to explore. It enjoys almost year-round sunshine. It has some of the world’s most beautiful, unspoiled beaches but also boasts interesting towns, landscapes and culture to explore if you get tired of soaking up the sun's rays.
The island measures just 165 km from tip to tip and is easy to explore along mostly easy and quiet roads. It is the second largest of the Mediterranean islands in Italy and is well connected to the rest of Europe.
Bosa is a colourful and interesting seaside town on the west coast of Sardinia in Italy. It has a population of just over eight and a half thousand and is built around a medieval castle, ‘Castello Malaspina’. It is just 2km from Bosa Marina and pristine beaches that are consistently voted the cleanest in Italy.
Here are a few suggestions to wet your appetite:
1. Visit Bosa Marina’s award-winning beach.
2. Visit the castle 'Castello Malaspina' and Bosa cathedral.
3. See ancient Alghero and its nearby beaches.
4. Visit the spectacular hidden caves of Neptune’s Grotto in Capocaccia

"Excellent value for money"
The typical Bosa house has a great location. We enjoyed sitting on the roof top terrace with our breakfast or a glass of wine. The house was very clean and nicely decorated. Everything worked well also because of the information we received before arriving. Copenhagen 11. August 2013

"A beautiful setting for a wonderful holiday"
We recently stayed at dommu asuletta with our one year old and had a superb time! Greg and Helen made sure we had all we needed for our little one, and we had a very happy and comfortable stay in their beautiful house. Was great to have such a lovely balcony to sit and eat once our son had gone to bed, to enjoy a glass of wine while the sun went down. The town of Bosa is great for lazy lunches and dinners, with beautiful streets and river walk to wander and a steep climb up to the castle for those more adventurous. Will definitely stay again and would recommend to others.

"Traditional Sardinian house with modern day comforts"
This very traditional house is in the heart of the charming medieval town of Bosa which is off the standard British tourist trail. The house has been refurbished to a very high standard and matches perfectly the description on its website. We loved in particular the terrace, the kitchen and the bathroom. The house is brilliantly sited in the centre of Bosa . The bakers,cafes and restaurants are all on your doorstep. The owner Greg was charming to deal with and was genuinely keen for us to have a great holiday.
Thanks very much for your kind words. You were great guests and very welcome again!

Bosa is a magical spot offering up unspoilt treasures to the interested visitor esp. out of the main tourist season. The house offers excellent access to all services and the 15min walk to the beach is a real pleasure along the river. Greg and Helen could not have been more accomodating and helpful either before, during or after our trip. The visitor does need to understand, though, that the house is a traditional one and, whilst charming, does have many very narrow stairs and low doorways and archways!
Thanks very much for your feedback. Yes, the house is tall and narrow and full of original features, including a couple of low archways and some narrow stairs – even the arched front door looks like it was built for a hobbit! All of the houses in the medieval historical centre are like this. In our opinion, this is what makes this traditional Sardinian home so charming. Our descriptions on our advert and website provide full details – room-by-room. Thanks for letting us know about the missing tin opener, the broken cup and toaster not functioning correctly. This does happen over the course of the season so we are grateful when we are notified. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and have swiftly replaced them now.

"Beautiful, idyllic and romantic."
This was my first visit to Sardinia and although friends had told me how lovely the scenery was I was not expecting such unspoilt natural beauty. The drive to Bosa took about 40minutes and the route is almost entirely along the coast with spectacular views . The village of Bosa is completely unspoilt by tourism and is made up of intertwining cobbled streets with plenty of local restaurants . The exterior of the house is beautifully in keeping with the local architecture and the interior has been tastefully renovated to an excellent standard spread over 4 floors . The kitchen is on the top floor with doors opening on to a terrace where we had breakfast every day in the morning sunshine! The master bedroom has an ensuite and we were supplied with plenty of clean bedlinen and towels. On the second floor there is a small living area with a tv and DVD player with a great selection of DVD' s for relaxing in front of. The main bathroom is fully equipped and has a washing machine available for use. We visited at the end of the Summer season and it was delightfully quiet . I would thoroughly recommend Dommu Assuletta as a place to stay and I look forward to staying there again .

"A beautiful find!"
My partner and I were absolutely delighted with the apartment in Bosa. We were lucky to find it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to friends, colleagues and family. The owner of the property is very friendly and helpful and the price he quotes you is the true price with no add ons (unlike many other holiday rental properties in Sardinia). We hope to return to Domu Assuletta in the not too distant future!

"A fabulous house in a the beautiful town of Bosa"
We had a wonderful fortnight in a house that has everything that you need. Bosa is a lovely town with some lovely resturants bars & cafes. If you need supermarkets there a couple of small ones in town just around the corner from the house, then larger ones 15 minutes walk or a short car journey. Bosa Marina Beach is wonderful & is a 10 minute drive or you can jump on the regular train from the town. There are other great coves / beaches a short drive out of town. Fully recccomended, thanks for our stay.

"The Ultimate relaxing getaway"
Our introduction to Sardinia couldn’t have been more perfect. The house was magical, full of character and charm, uncomplicated and at the same time, equipped with all the comforts you might need or want when you are away from home. The terrace was our favorite spot and if you get to visit, and you should, you will know why, the roof tops view were as good as they get and gazing at the incredible star canopied sky occupied most of our evenings. The location couldn’t have been better, right in the center of town where everything was at hand, delightful local shops selling all kinds of delicious Italian goodies made really difficult to escape and explore the outskirts of Bosa, which, when we did, did not disappoint; the beaches were beautiful and unexploited with amazing blue clear waters, the secluded Cala Compoltittu being our favourite. People were warm and friendly and never made us feel like tourists. Thanks to the Woods Family, we will definitely be back, including our snorkels!

"Cannot wait to return to this wonderful home away from home"
Abbiamo trascorso la settimana di ferragosto 2011 nella Dommu Asuletta e siamo rimasti entusiasti della casa e di Bosa. Dommu Asuletta è una torre nella parte storica di Bosa. E' raggiungibile solo a piedi e si trova in una stradina molto stretta parallela al corso principale del paese. Si può parcheggiare la macchina in una piazzetta vicina, al di fuori dell'area pedonale, a circa 150 metri dalla casa. La casa è accogliente e si sviluppa su 5 piani, collegati tra loro da una scala ripida. Superato lo scoramento iniziale, anche la scala nel corso dei giorni diventa facile da fare e contribuisce a bruciare le calorie che il favoloso cibo sardo apporta ! Gli spessi muri antichi e le numerose finestre permettono di avere sempre una piacevole fresca temperatura interna in cui riposarsi nelle ore più calde della giornata. All'ultimo piano c'è la cucina e un bel terrazzo a pianta quadrata dove si può mangiare affacciati sui tetti di coppi del centro di Bosa godendo del venticello portato dal vicino mare. Attorno alla casa ci sono nuerosi negozi di alimentari (da provare la pasticceria in fondo al vicolo e l'incredibile pizza al taglio servita solo da asporto in una piccola pizzeria che dà sulla piazza del parcheggio) e caratteristiche trattorie e ristoranti dove si può mangiare molto bene a prezzi ragionevoli. Per la spesa più grande ci sono due supermercati raggiungibili in macchina in 5 minuti che hanno anche un'ottima selezione di vini sardi con cui allietare le serate in terrazza. Il mare si trova a circa 2 km, a Bosa Marina, e è molto bello. La spiaggia è libera e ben tenuta. Ricordarsi di comprare un ombrellone con cui proteggersi nelle ore più calde. Se dovessimo usare un'immagine e una sensazione per descrivere il nostro soggiorno, mi viene in mente la gentilezza delle persone di Bosa in generale e dei vicini di casa, pronti a farvi partecipi delle loro interessanti storie, e l'immediato ambientamento che si raggiunge con la casa. La sensazione che si prova è di essere sempre stati a Dommu Asuletta sebbene, ahi noi, la casa è di Helen e Greg ! Speriamo di poterci tornare presto. Grazie.

"A truly magical and stylish house equipped with everything required to ensure a comfortable stay"
A beautifully decorated house set in a cobbled street just behind the main square. The house itself is imposing and painted the most delightful blue making it stand out from all the others. The rooms are large and well furnished and all lead up to the top floor which houses a fully functional and modern kitchen with a balcony attached for al fresco dining. The owners could not have done more to accomodate and i will definitely be returning and recommending to all my friends.
Thanks for a great review. We have recently upgraded much of the decor and furniture so it has everything you need for the perfect holiday.
