House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
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’.

"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.

"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!
23 May 2013
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.
